Sometimes Dark Horse might deserve some of the grief it gets for the long wait between volumes of manga, and sometimes its working with a monthly series that doesn't exactly stick to its schedule. The latter is undoubtedly the case with Berserk. A mere 10 months after the release of volume 36, volume 37 will be arriving this November.
