Created by Kenturo Miura, Berserk is manga mayhem to the intense – violent, horrifying, and mercilessly funny – and the wellspring for the the world over popular anime series. No longer for the squeamish or the easily angry, Berserk asks for no quarter – and offers none! His name is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a feared warrior spoken of only in whispers. Bearer of a gigantic sword, an iron hand, and the scars of countless battles and tortures, his flesh may be indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that attracts the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice. But Guts may not take his fate lying down; he’s going to cut a crimson swath of carnage throughout the ranks of the damned – and somebody else foolish enough to oppose him! Accompanied by Puck the Elf, more an annoyance than a companion, Guts relentlessly follows a dark, bloodstained path that leads only to death…or vengeance.
