The story is after taking a rather light hearted turn lately. There be pirates.

You're catching up to me now. I like the change from action/general plot to characters as it's nice for the pacing.

I agree. I liked the part where they were in the bar a lot. I also enjoyed Guts' battle with Serpico. I liked how cocky Serpico got because of the stone pillars, yet he still managed to get owned and Guts didn't bother to use his other items beside the sword. I also like how Guts' sword doubles as a shield a lot of the time. I'm on volume 30 now.

God damn it, you're ahead of me again. Give me an hour.

I'm starting to think Berserk was a very big influence in lots of RPGs. The main character carries a massive sword, there is a strong magic user in the party, as well as others with different abilities. There is even a berserk status effect in Final Fantasy games where a character becomes stronger and can dish out more damage to his opponents but can't have any control over his actions. That's exactly what happens to Guts when the armour takes over. Then there is the monsters and architecture. It would have been a pretty big influence indeed.

I'd also say that both Dark Cecil and and Kain's designs were both partially derived from the berserker armor.

Yes, I forgot about that as well. There is some sort of demon bird after showing up called Fafnir as well. The same thing showed up in some FF games. The karyan in The Witcher 2 seems similar to a sea monster that just showed up as well. I would even say that Kratos in God of War is at least partially inspired by Guts.

I love the 'chemistry' between Guts and Zodd. It's one of my favourite things about the story.

I'm after getting to the part where the chapters are all broken up. I think I'll stop reading. From what I hear it takes Miura about 3 or 4 months to make a chapter, which only comprises of about 20 pages. That's why it's going on for so long. I might come back to it in about 5 years ;)

Tooooool. 's ok. I'll probably just to the "subscribe" thingy on MangaReader and hit it up every so often.

I pity the people that started reading it 20 years ago. I might take a look at the Claymore manga, which also seems to be ongoing.

Yeah, Claymore is ongoing, but it seems to be going at a pace that rivals Berserk, with around a chapter/20-30 pages a month.
