Read full description of the books ベ 16 [Beruseruku]:
This review is for the climax of the Lost Children mini-arc, not the volume as a whole. The way Japanese manga volumes typically work is that each volume is a set number of chapters, and arcs may not necessarily end on the last page of a given volume.
I was impressed by the emotional weight of the climax of this story. We're finally given a glimpse of the new Guts that emerged from the Eclipse, a much darker and violent man than we knew before. His thirst for revenge is its own ongoing tragedy, since the acts of violence he must commit in pursuit of his goal has come to define the core of his identity. And yet, there are moments that show humanity remains within him. He holds back when it comes to children, though that doesn't stop him from using them as bait or displaying acts of brutality before their eyes. Perhaps his own tragic childhood affords him the protective instincts for the youth he inevitably comes in contact with.
While Miura's art is always fantastic, his writing is not always so. Thankfully, in this volume, he demonstrates a command of story, able to affect moods with apparent ease. The writing and art are in synch, which is the sign of a truly great comic book. It was thanks to this level of writing that I felt genuine pity for the tragic events that unfolded. This volume gives us a complete portrait of Rosine, the luna moth apostle we first met during the Eclipse. Unlike other apostles introduced so far, Rosine was a child before she turned. As such, there is a certain innocence about her actions, even as she snuffs out the lives of numerous human adults. There's no pettiness to her malice, just a belief that her actions are justice, no matter how childish. Her own reality serves as a foil to Guts–he's still human, but his rage fueled actions are hardly heroic.
Jill and, to a lesser extent, Puck help ground the story so us mere humans can more easily relate to what happens on the page. They are our POVs to the events that unfold. Jill, who must survive hardships at the cruel hand of her father, is no stranger to misery. And, yet, there's a tragic loss of innocence as she witnesses the cruelty of Rosine and Guts. Perhaps saddest of all, she must face the reality that even though her own home is unwelcoming, it's the best she's got. These two also keep Guts grounded in his humanity. Without them there, he would surely lose himself to rage and/or despair, perhaps even ending up as something worse than the apostles.
Read information about the authorKentarou Miura (三浦 建太郎) was born in Chiba City, Chiba Prefecture, Japan, in 1966. He is left-handed. In 1976, at the early age of 10, Miura made his first Manga, entitled "Miuranger", that was published for his classmates in a school publication; the manga ended up spanning 40 volumes. In 1977, Miura created his second manga called Ken e no michi (剣への道 The Way to the Sword), using Indian ink for the first time. When he was in middle school in 1979, Miura's drawing techniques improved greatly as he started using professional drawing techniques. His first dōjinshi was published, with the help of friends, in a magazine in 1982.
That same year, in 1982, Miura enrolled in an artistic curriculum in high school, where he and his classmates started publishing their works in school booklets, as well as having his first dōjinshi published in a fan-produced magazine. In 1985, Miura applied for the entrance examination of an art college in Nihon University. He submitted Futanabi for examination and was granted admission. This project was later nominated Best New Author work in Weekly Shōnen Magazine. Another Miura manga Noa was published in Weekly Shōnen Magazine the very same year. Due to a disagreement with one of the editors, the manga was stalled and eventually dropped altogether. This is approximately where Miura's career hit a slump.
In 1988, Miura bounced back with a 48-page manga known as Berserk Prototype, as an introduction to the current Berserk fantasy world. It went on to win Miura a prize from the Comi Manga School. In 1989, after receiving a doctorate degree, Kentarou started a project titled King of Wolves (王狼, ōrō?) based on a script by Buronson, writer of Hokuto no Ken. It was published in the monthly Japanese Animal House magazine in issues 5 and 7 of that year.
In 1990, a sequel is made to Ourou entitled Ourou Den (王狼伝 ōrō den, The Legend of the Wolf King) that was published as a prequel to the original in Young Animal Magazine. In the same year, the 10th issue of Animal House witnesses the first volume of the solo project Berserk was released with a relatively limited success. Miura again collaborated with Buronson on manga titled Japan, that was published in Young Animal House from the 1st issue to the 8th of 1992, and was later released as a stand-alone tankōbon. Miura's fame grew after Berserk was serialized in Young Animal in 1992 with the release of "The Golden Age" story arc and the huge success of his masterpiece made of him one of the most prominent contemporary mangakas. At this time Miura dedicates himself solely to be working on Berserk. He has indicated, however, that he intends to publish more manga in the future.
In 1997, Miura supervised the production of 25 anime episodes of Berserk that aired in the same year on NTV. Various art books and supplemental materials by Miura based on Berserk are also released. In 1999, Miura made minor contributions to the Dreamcast video game Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage. 2004 saw the release of yet another video game adaptation entitled Berserk Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Record of the Holy Demon War.
Since that time, the Berserk manga has spanned 34 tankōbon with no end in sight. The series has also spawned a whole host of merchandise, both official and fan-made, ranging from statues, action figures to key rings, video games, and a trading card game. In 2002, Kentarou Miura received the second place in the Osamu Tezuka Culture Award of Excellence for Berserk.
Miura provided the design for the Vocaloid Kamui Gakupo, whose voice is taken from the Japanese singer and actor, Gackt.
