Berserk



I'm kinda surprised that no one on the site has posted this yet actually, I even went to the trouble of running a couple of keyword searches to be sure. I've found a couple of mentions about the series, but no direct thread was found.
:%

Personally, I thought this series was excellent. Second only to Gantz. One of the best I've read, though the graphic content takes some time to get used to so I thought I might as well warn you [WARNING EXTREME GRAPHIC CONTENT].

Fyi, the series is still incomplete and is still ongoing. And is about 2gbs, so I'm not going to bother uploading it onto the market or megaupload, that would be suicide...

For more info:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berserk_(manga)

Summary:
Berserk is the story of a young swordsman named Guts (Gatts, Gattsu, Gats, Gutz... Miura uses Guts so that's what I'll use) and his journey towards something that will change his life and all those around him forever. The very first episode introduces us to an extremely PISSED and insane Guts, who is on the path for revenge, but as the story progresses we are shown the flashback of Guts's past and what led him to become the Black Swordsman.

The story is filled with the most amazing cast of extremely realistic characters, each with their own flaws, hopes, dreams, and ideals. Guts eventually joins the Band of the Hawk, a legendary army of bandits and mercenaries that will attempt to reach for the heavens with Guts as their right hand. The series is the telling of their ascension towards the one goal that their leader Griffith has seen, to rule absolutely and attain his own kingdom. The band of the hawk also introduces us to Judeau, Pippin, Rickert, Corkus, and most importantly for Guts, Caska.

The characters grow and strive for everything right in front of the viewer, and never have I been so entranced by a story. It's really that good, and unless you've seen it you won't know what I'm talking about!

Most of the series takes place in the Kingdom of Midland, which has been waring with a neighboring kingdom, Tuda, for hundreds of years. Using this as a way to attain greatness, Griffith and the Hawks side with Midland and join their forces as one of its strongest components. the battles are bloody and vicious, and the interaction of characters is really something to see.


Here's a torrent and Preview.
(The torrent contains vol. 1-29 of the Manga, translated by the Hawks)*

always loved the use of his huge ass sword
I think its a basis and beginnin of that idea
later made even more popular by FF7?

but I dont really like the old school drawing stle so thats pretty much why I was never interested in Berserk

The anime was suppose to have an extra episode but was cut short due to the lack of funding. That is why there was such an unclear and shitty ending. Also the whole anime story was only a mere flashback that took place in only about 10 volumes or so in the manga.

The real story is about Guts wandering around trying to take revenge on femto. The manga is still coming out to this day and the fights/graphics are fucking awesome.

the anime was cool, when they were being eaten and shit. but yeah manga totally owned it. GAntz is pretty sick too, those two are my favorites.

The story is well thought out and pretty graphic, and very fucking interesting.

The manga was EXTREMELY well made and the budget put into the production was amazing.
Loved the action and the storyline was pretty intense. It's one of those mangas that has a wicked cliff hanger where leads to more action.

The Anime was great IMO. I really loved the art of the main character; however, the story wasn't as well portrayed as i anticipated but the action is still justified.

its still ongoing, but it only seems to be lacking focus because its comming out so slowly. If we can read like 1 volume at a time instead of 1 chapter, it'll seem alot better.

later on when u find out what griffith does when he is impatient and THEN what follows after just is messed up.

let alone all the messed up drawings that take place throughout the manga... storyline is good but i just wish they made it less graphic.. its just too graphic.

Save me the time from downloading and reading through all the manga's. What happens with griffith, guts and casca? I have the original game they made on Dreamcast (sword of berserk)...didn't even link the two together until I rewatched the anime.
Here's the proof;
Btw, I could never finish the game on hard mode. I would keep dieing at the last level :(
