I saw berserk and I was like wow it is one of the best animes ever made. I looooooved the animation and the soud effect and the voice acting , everything was perfect except the gayness of griffith. But I saw the end and I was like WTF I know they ran out of money for the 26th episode but still thats just stupid I wanna know what happens . I dont want to read the manga uness I know its good so I wanted to ask someone wo has already read it and ask for their opinion.

Read the manga. It's worth it. Aside from continuing the epic story, the detailed artwork is exceptional. It's truly a masterpiece of manga.

The anime is good, but it ends very early. I talked to someone involved in the production of the anime (japanese) at a convention a couple years ago and asked if they were ever going to make more. He said they'd talked about it, since it was successful enough to warrant it, but that there was no way to do it with it still being able to be shown on TV. He said it's not impossible that there might be more, but it is highly unlikely.

Dude why I love the series a lot I think that there are enough people who like thi sseries to warrant season 2 and thanks for your opinion on the manga I am going to read that Monday first thing tommorow just needed someone to confirm it was good. And do you know why the anime was closed down was it bcuz people had no interest in it when it came out. But I stilll think that the animation is the best I have seen in any anime even better than most of the new ones like Naruto and Bleach. Its just handdrawn and pretty

Eh, the production in berserk started really bad but got better as it got it along - bleach and naruto have pretty crappy production since it's basically assembly line shonen action. Most of what you're probably noticing is the exceptional artwork, and alot of the anime is faithful to the manga so it carried over well (of the 14 volumes released in the US, i think only around 6 were accurately done in the anime).

The anime (as best as I can tell) was very limited financially and thats the main reason for its early end. That and they probably only planned on doing two seasons worth, and I'm not sure how much of the manga had been released in japan at the time but that may have been a factor. The manga is much more graphic and violent than the anime, so they were already pushing it with what they could show on TV as it was. I suspect a part of the reason they stopped there was due to not being able to preserve the story without cutting out too much to make it suitable for television.

Currently there are 31 volumes out in Japan, so there is alot of story to go. Plus a few video games, the only one making it over being Sword of the Berserk for Dreamcast. It's a fun game, but nothing amazing. Basically a simplistic (and clumsy) hack n' slash that takes place well after the anime.

I saw the game for berserk and they were going to release that agin for a different systam too. But you got me really excoted about the manga right now. I have actually seen some of its designs and I was like wow thats really good but the one part that really sucks is that they come out with chaper every other week. But yes like ou could see the effort the animators put in the animation in the end when Guts was fighting in the end. I was so amazed by the animation and I still am Damn I wanna start reading manga right now but I still hae one last final on Monday so I cant do that but I just want to know where you get your berserk manga from cuz I want it in good quality

Well, I buy mine from bookstores (typically Borders since its less than 5 minutes from my apartment). They're about $14 a volume (since they're bigger than regular manga). I usually pick up one each paycheck.

You can probably get discounts buying them online, as well as downloading scans at other less legal places (can't help you out there).

Berserk owns. Guts is one of the most badass anime characters of all time. Griffith was a little homo, but what are you gonna do? The Mangas are awesome, and if I'm not mistaken the entire Anime takes place in the first manga and that makes reading the rest worth it for me. Sorry, a little late to jump into the fray.

I am the biggest fanboy ever! jk
But I love the storyline and artwork. I have all the american released manga, the Box of War dvd set, a behelit (new style, eyes closed) and I have all the hawks and evil-genius scanlations. I was thinking of getting one of those foam Dragon Slayer replicas but i havent yet.

If they ever redo the anime/finish it, it would be my absolute favorite anime.

Well, I had a friend who recommended it to me and constently told me about it and about how great and amazing it was and after looking up some reviews and other stuff about it I heard nothing but great things.

After actually watching it I have to say I was dissappointed, by no means was it bad, quite hte contray I did enjoy it, but I can't say it was anything overly special, IMO, I liked the story and I didn't really dislike any of the main characters, but I just wasn't awed by it or really engulped into it, def. worth watching, but nothing A+ or anything.

I've not read any of the manga, I actually plained to till I started reading the Kare Kano stuff, but it's still on my to do list.

I liked the anime, I was confused at the ending as well, but it makes a little more sense if you watch the first episode last. It still doesnt quite wrap up the series. I've been meaning to pick up the manga, but I have too much other stuff I want to buy,and snowboarding is an expensive hobby thats eats up most of my extra money. oh well, I'll get it eventually.

It would be kind of hard to continue the anime by following the story from the manga since the anime removed certain major characters, namely Puck and the Skull Knight.

Personally I really like Berserk, it's one of the few fantasy anime (with a western setting) out there that doesn't feel like a ripoff of some RPG (Record of Lodoss War, I'm looking at you).
