Just recently finished reading Kentaro Miura's manga Berserk for the 6th time, and man did I love it all over again. Just wondering if anyone else has had the opportunity to take a look at this series. It's hands down my favorite manga.

Guts, the Black Swordsman, is traveling the lands with his humongous sword. His mission? Find demons known as apostles, and kill the living shit out of them. First three volumes establish the setting and characters, and then the next 11 or so volumes are a flashback of Guts' life and how he became who he is. And MAN, is it a wild ride. The backs of the American covers for the volumes you can buy describe it as such:

"Berserk is the hammer of the manga forge, a white-hot amalgam
of bruising action, breathless horror, and brimstone humor that
separates men from boys, wheat from chaff, and heads from shoulders! DO
YOU WANT TO LIVE FOREVER?"

Sounds over the top? Well that is actually a pretty damn astute description of the experience. The first volume came out in 1990, and is still updating (though with a super lax update schedule). It's an 18 and up manga though, so expect some really horrific shit if you should decide to read it.

Not my cup of tea, but I'll have to tell my boyfriend about it. Thanks for telling me. Smile

Also, recently in Japan, they've been adapting the manga into a series of anime movies. The first two are incredibly well done if you wish to watch instead of read.
