From ANN:
Gats, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces attracted to him and his woman because of a demonic mark on their necks, and also vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice. Aided only by his titanic strength gained from a harsh childhood lived with mercenaries, a gigantic sword, and an iron prosthetic left hand, Gats must struggle against his bleak destiny, all the while fighting with a rage that might strip him of his humanity.

Warning: This manga is for mature audiences only, since it has sexual content and graphic violence (gore, blood, rape, etc). Definitely not for the weak hearted.

A classic dark fantasy adventure, one of the oldest and most praised manga of our time…. filled with complex story , revenge , glory , dream, survival , mystery !! and with amazing characters to meet along the way and a even more impressive character dev alongside this huge story about to unfold as u read it ….

If you like blood and dark stories with a lot of violence, then you will love berserk , but do not worry if you dont !!! cause eventho the anime seems to put on "light" only on the "dark" ( paradox ) , there are actually a lot of light and fun times to enjoy along this gory path and it is clearer to see it on manga ( and puke the elf is one of the major reason for it…. )

It is evident to me that the last twist of story seems to expand the adventure to a much broader and less dark world with more people to root for … ( but with berserk the fun comes from the fact that you dont know what the writer will dare to do …. is he gonna crush them down like a game of thrones show ?? maybe , who knows )

anyhow, the animation is great the dialogue is fun and also really well balanced between serious , badass and jokes…

So…. yes , this manga should be read by basically everyone, its a classic and a masterpiece … infact if you havent heard of berserk before , you probably were living under a rock those last 20 years ( or werent born yet? )
