Berserk Manga Volume 1
About Berserk Manga Volume 1
Berserk volume 1 features story and art by Kenturo Miura.
His name is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a feared warrior spoken of only in whispers. Bearer of a gigantic sword, an iron hand, and the scars of countless battles and tortures, his flesh is also indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that draws the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice.
But Guts won't take his fate lying down; he'll cut a crimson swath of carnage through the ranks of the damned - and anyone else foolish enough to oppose him! Accompanied by Puck the Elf, more an annoyance than a companion, Guts relentlessly follows a dark, bloodstained path that leads only to death... or vengeance.

Wonderful says it all
The manga version of Berserk really fleshes out the story. So much detail is given to this series that it really is just plain wonderful. Given that anyone who has seen and finshed the anime wants some questions answerd has the chance to do so with this realese really owes it to themselves to pick it up and experince Berserk in all its 'guts' and glory.

Berserk is a beautifully violent manga with great characters and a interesting story!
It lacks a lot of dialog but replaces it with great visuals. I recommend buying the first couple to see if it's right for you.
A manga masterpiece

Berserk is a masterpiece. From great story to great visuals to great characters, you will most likely it if you like Tokyo Ghoul or Deadman Wonderland. It is very gory and has some sex scenes. Try the first 3 volumes if you like it buy more. Beware berserk goes out of stock very fast and is very hard to find. Some of the volumes right now go for $30+ on other sites. so buy it right when you see it in stock
worth the extra money

On the pricier end of manga, but well worth it. This covers part of an arc after Golden Age, but later in the series it goes back to it.
when first read berserk i had no i idea of what going happen or what kind adventure it would be .well after reading up volume 19 i realized that this is a story like no other . if ever thought about checking out berserk please just buy it you wouldn't regret it . im sorry tell anything about the story but i think its best go into berserk blind.
Read the Manga!

It goes without saying if you enjoyed the anime, whether it be the 1997 anime, the golden age trilogy or the newest installment in 2016 with its second season currently airing , and you can't get enough of Gut's brutality. Then you'll enjoy the manga at least 5x more. The original work brought to life by the incredibly detailed illustrations and story telling of Kentaro Miura, is something ahead of its time given it debuted in 1989. Their is no lack of quality and if dark fantasy is up you alley, then there's no better recommendation then Berserk.
The volume that started it all...

Berserk is one of the best manga series out there with amazing art work and storytelling to boot. It is a very dark tale brimming with emotion and action. I would recommend this to those who don't even read manga.
