The future of Berserk is still anyone’s guess at this point, with creator Kentaro Miura, unfortunately, passing earlier this year, but one fan has managed to capture the final panel drawn by the mangaka, which might be the last time that we read the story of Guts, Griffith, Casca, and the Band of the Hawk. Currently, fans are wondering if the series will ever return, perhaps produced by the assistants of Miura, though the publishers behind the manga series, Young Animal, are tight-lipped when it comes to any new chapters that might continue the dark story.
The final chapter of Berserk’s manga, Chapter 364, sees Guts and his current band of warriors coming into contact with the Moonlight Boy, the mysterious young child that has been passing in and out of the lives of the former members of the Band of the Hawk since the Eclipse took place. In the devastating final panel, the enigmatic toddler is revealed to potentially be a face of the White Hawk Griffith, or might in fact be Griffith himself. With this version of Griffith shedding tears, potentially, for the crimes he committed in the past, the panel in question was a beautiful example of Miura’s art and works well if it might be the finale of the series.
Reddit User JimmysTimmy2 shared a perfect recreation of the final panel of Berserk from Chapter 364, which reveals a new form for the Moonlight Boy, whose true identity remains shrouded in mystery even during the final installment of the dark series that showed off the talents of Kentaro Miura:
On the anime front, Berserk has yet to reveal whether the dark franchise will be coming to the small screen once again. With the previous entry of the series being seen as controversial amongst fans who thought that the 2016 show wasn’t able to capture the high quality established by Miura, it will be interesting to see what form the mature anime franchise takes when, or if, it returns down the line.
Do you think we’ll see Berserk return in the future in either the worlds of anime or manga? Should Berserk continue following the passing of Kentaro Miura?
