Berserk Manga to Resume
Berserk’s manga is set to continue following the death of its creator, Kentaro Miura, last May.
Miura’s close friend, Koji Mori – the only person who told Berserk’s story from start to finish – would take over the series and just write what Miura said without any supplemental stories or fillers.
Last year, Berserk fans said goodbye to the series’ beloved creator, and Kentaro Miura has been sorely missed ever since.
As for the manga, Berserk’s future was left uncertain as the editorial team worked quietly behind the scenes to sort out Miura’s final wishes for the series.
Now, the editorial team has updated fans about its plans for Berserk, and it turns out that the successful manga will continue under the careful eye of Miura’s best friend.
According to the Young Animal editorial team, Miura left notes for the crew that cover the entirety of Berserk from start to finish.
The creator made sure that the team had the resources to finish the manga without him if needed.
Sadly, his death pushed Miura’s notes to the fore, and Berserk’s longtime friend Koji Mori will oversee Berserk as he returns to production.
The series will resume in the upcoming issue of Young Animal magazine, and will conclude the next six seasons of Fantasia Arc.
A new arc will begin after that, and although the publisher calls this period of Berserk “the last episode we put together,” it hasn’t said how long the story will last, or whether this new arc will be the last.
Young Animal also had access to the diaries and character designs that Miura created before his death, and said he was reluctant to finish Berserk without sharing his full story with fans.
“We believe that this policy, while imperfect, is the best way to present the berserk that Miura envisioned to everyone as honestly as possible,” she added.
