Berserk Will Continue On Without Kentaro Miura

After the sudden passing of Berserk creator Kentaro Miura last year at the age of 54, fans have wondered whether it’s the end of the dark fantasy manga. After months of speculating, we have our answer.

The Berserk manga will resume with six chapters of the current story to be published. After that, the book will continue with a new arc. The new entries will be credited as follows:

“Original work by Kentaro Miura, Manga by Studio Gaga, Supervised by Kouji Mori”

The story and manga post-Miura will be supervised by Holyland creator Kouji Mori, who is Miura’s close friend. Here are his statements regarding his role in future Berserk stories.

Nearly 30 years ago, Miura called me and said, “I need to talk to you about drawing a rough draft.” I went to his workplace just to talk as we always do, but Miura looked more serious than usual. “I need to draw the Eclipse,” he said. I sensed it would be hard work, but couldn’t believe it when I was trapped indoors for a week… In that very moment, the storyline for Berserk was completed, until the very last chapter.

Strangely, the story for Berserk went on exactly as we discussed at the time, with almost no changes. I continued to talk to Miura often, whenever there was a big episode. We did so ever since we were students, consulting each other while working on manga.

I think people with good intuition would realize by now that I know the story for Berserk up to the very end. Still, I cannot say that I can draw it because I know it. That is because only the genius Kentaro Miura can write a masterpiece like Berserk.

However, a great responsibility has fallen on me.

While he was alive, Miura said, “I haven’t told anyone other than you, Mori, about the story in its entirety.” And that was the truth. It is too big a responsibility. I thought, should I talk to fans about it through an interview? Or should I publish an article with some illustrations? But that wouldn’t convey the scenes that Miura described to me, or the lines of Guts and Griffith…

Just when I was trying to decide what to do, I received a message.

“The staff are saying they will finish the last chapter that was left behind, so can you take a look?”

The last few pages of the chapter were incomplete. Some did not even have the characters drawn on them.

I took a look at the manuscript, without expecting much.

Desperation can push people to create miracles — There it was, the completed manuscript for Berserk.

“Mr. Mori, will you let us do it?”

Miura’s apprentices, who Miura had been so proud of while he was alive, asked me straight.

Company Director Shimada, a mentor for me and Miura, also said, “If you do it, the company will give our full support.”

I thought, if I run away now, Miura would say:

“I talked to you about it so much, but you didn’t do it!!”

Alright. I’ll do it properly.

I have a message and promise to everyone. I will recall the details as much as possible and tell the story.

Also, I will only write the episodes that Miura talked to me about. I will not flesh it out. I will not write episodes that I don’t remember clearly. I will only write the lines and stories that Miura described to me. Of course, it will not be perfect. Still, I think I can almost tell the story that Miura wanted to tell.

The talent Miura’s apprentices have are real!

They are brilliant artists.

Many of you may not be fully satisfied with the Berserk written without Miura, but we hope everyone’s thoughts will be with us.

We ask you for your continued support.

Looks like Berserk fans will get their hopeful ending after all.
