    I'm not much into Manga but I thought this was pretty good. I'm not exactly sure where the story is headed but so far this is packed with the Black Swordsman cleaving lots of demons in half. Very graphic, gory, and dark with a large horror element. The art, while very detailed, sometimes is too busy and leaves me puzzled as to what is happening.Received a review copy from Dark Horse and Edelweiss. All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforementioned.

    Reading Berserk for the first time, and first off, let me just say, these books as a physical product are awesome! Super nice to hold in the hand, sewn spine, ribbon bookmark, I am pleased as punch to own and display this volume, and will be collecting the rest. As for the manga, well yeah, it's consensus that Berserk is pretty incredible. I don't know if I have the stomach for some of the depraved depths it reaches eventually, but right here, this is an incredible universe with some truly wild Reading Berserk for the first time, and first off, let me just say, these books as a physical product are awesome!

As for the manga, well yeah, it's consensus that Berserk is pretty incredible. I don't know if I have the stomach for some of the depraved depths it reaches eventually, but right here, this is an incredible universe with some truly wild layers of good and evil. Its most incredible feat as an introductory arc is presenting Guts as a total dickwad, and having him look comparatively heroic next to his enemies. This was a lot of fun to read, and I admire Miura's art. Very excited to read more.

    A good start to a much-heralded manga, this volume concentrates more on action and setup rather than backstory or character. We get an insight into how much Guts, the main protagonist, would do to live, and the action scenes illustrate this perfectly.Speaking of the action scenes, the artwork is superb, all bloody and visceral, with limbs and projectiles flying everywhere. The backgrounds are nice, giving the scenes a truly medieval feel, all dirty and messy.The only problems I had with the mang A good start to a much-heralded manga, this volume concentrates more on action and setup rather than backstory or character.

The backgrounds are nice, giving the scenes a truly medieval feel, all dirty and messy.The only problems I had with the manga was that there wasn't much else other than fighting, no real character development or anything. We see a lot of Guts' interactions with strangers and enemies but not with friends or allies. I guess we'll see that next volume. The humour felt out of place at times, although it also brought some much-needed levity.But those downsides still do not detract from this violent, visceral volume of demon killing and slaughter. A good start.

    I loved every page of this beautiful and fucking weird and desolate story. This edition in particular is really well put together. It's just an incredible physical book.It has a sewn binding and a place ribbon with die stamping. Plus there's a lot of fucked up violence, gore and horror.
