5 Reasons You Should Be Reading Berserk
5. It's Art
Miura is one of the best in the business when it comes to spectacular and impactful art. If fantastic art is something you love, then Berserk should already be on your list of manga to check out.
4. Its Grotesque Monsters
If you are into monsters, or just horror in general, Berserk should also be a must. It truly has some of the most disturbing monsters you will ever see anywhere.
3. The Golden Age
It's rare I find a manga where only one arc alone is enough to justify reading the entire thing. Berserk's Golden Age arc is one of the best examples. The arc follows Guts as he comes out of his shell and learns to accept comradery in the Band of the Hawk. The story follows the band's journey until they are eventually slaughtered by the rash actions of the band's leader Griffith. These are the events that change Guts to be who he is in the Black Swordsman arc.
2. It's Story
I have never been more invested in a story than I was in Berserk. It is truly gripping and tense the whole way through. At the end of the day Berserk is basically a revenge story, but it is also just so much more then that.
1. It's Characters
Arguably one of the best aspects of Berserk is it's characters. I could argue every single character has a form of development or purpose. They are all very interesting, even the villains in the story have their own motives.
