    Oh my god, a cliffhanger? Again??? Dammit, I think Miura already has all the answers and the ending for the story and even the elaborate art but he just enjoys torturing his readers.

    This volume gives me the strongest LotR vibes. 🧝🏻‍♀️🧚🏼‍♂️🧙🏻‍♂️ Elves are amazing. I love elves. Anyway, it seems like, after 20 YEARS(!!!) of waiting we’re finally going to get the sane version of Casca back 😪🙏🏼 it’s about time. Can’t wait! 👏🏽

    I can't believe we are so close, so close to getting Casca back but I am terrified of this too. I am happy that it's Schierke and Farnese who are guiding the process in that dream hellspace. It feels more appropriate for them to help Casca return than for Guts to do it, even though I am heart-broken for the man. The art is as gorgeous as ever, who is surprised? No one.

    This is the 39th volume in the Berserk series. I really feel like the last few volumes of the Berserk series have been unfocused and kind of slow, however this volume changes that. This was the best Berserk volume in a long time and I really enjoyed it. Guts and crew finally get to Elfhelm and are forced to battle through a number of defenses before they get to meet the leader there. They finally find out how to put Casca’s mind back together and it’s a journey only Schierke and Farnese can help This is the 39th volume in the Berserk series.

This was an incredibly well done volume in the Berserk series. The artwork is spectacular as always and the story finally makes a lot of progress! Here’s to hoping the next volume shows even more progress and starts to wrap things up. Overall this is the best volume in the Berserk series that we have seen in a couple years. The story makes a lot of progress and the artwork remains high quality. Definitely recommended if you are a fan of this manga series. This is one of the best fantasy seinen series out there.

    Readers need to understand that this series isn't solely about Guts vs Griffith, and you can't expect a gory fight scene between the two in every other chapter. I noticed that Miura has chosen to focus a lot on world-building in the last few volumes and frankly speaking, he's doing an amazing job. I loved reading about the elves and magic (and who would've guessed we'd get merrows, too?) New characters? Plot twists? Character development for people other than the main protagonist? GIVE ME THAT. Readers need to understand that this series isn't solely about Guts vs Griffith, and you can't expect a gory fight scene between the two in every other chapter.

It's been 39 volumes and I've never been let down (except heartbroken by Griffith, of course). Definitely one of the best Fantasy manga ever.

    Elfhelm finally! The total opposite of all the previous nastiness. Will Puck take the throne?! Will Casca get her mind back?! One of these questions is answered 😜 It really strikes me how much art has changed over the years. Guess will be another few years till the next one 😭

    The Fantasia arc catches a lot of flack for feeling different from the rest of the series, but I've enjoyed it a lot. The digital art really comes into its own here, looking very natural in print (funnily enough). The shift in art style suits the more fantastical and peaceful tone of this book. Guts has finally at his best again, being able to open up to others about his thoughts and feelings.

The Bonfire of Dreams? When him and Casca had sex? Either way, it has been a very long time and seeing him smile, openly express himself, and thoroughly trust others is utterly heartwarming. Aside from that, I greatly enjoyed the dream segments. The first level of Casca's mind was so adorable, yet tragic at the same time. The imagery throughout was fantastic, as was the walk through Casca's memories. I can see how this stuff might be frustrating if you have to wait months between each chapter, but reading it all in one book was a great experience. I really savored it. I'm loving Berserk.

    It feels like I've waited 20 years for this storyline to start. It's pretty good. The art is amazing too! So many things going on in each scene. A lot of detail and background. Pretty amazing character moments too.

    Very disappointed nothing happens, a lot of build up but nothing happens. Hopefully with how this one ended the next volume will be worth reading.

In fact, I was half expecting the forest welcoming party to be cut down to half its size. Guts is growing soft. Not totally a bad thing, if Casca does come back, it's probably better if Guts isn't running around with Rickert slaying demons/apostles without much else to his life. I'm a little blown away that Guts is as open as he is about his history, specifically between him and Griffith.

I'm a little blown away that Guts is as open as he is about his history, specifically between him and Griffith. Alas, we will learn more about the day that changed everything. Miura's art doesn't slow down a bit. We get to see all sorts of mythical creatures drawn in his hand and style, the cherry on top being an elf queen. The event of the astral and physical worlds bleeding together is picking up the name 'the great roar' by all these mages. It's explained in great detail here. And the most interesting part of this novel is the Corridor of Dreams. It's in the Corridor that we see an adorable version of Casca (by the way will Puck ever revert back to their normal form?), and the broken doll that seems to be her fragmented psyche. It's very interesting to see Casca's portrayal of things in the dreamworld and it's building up towards something probably...dark. I can't wait to savor whatever macabre concoction is heading our way. I'm looking forward to seeing Morda in a few more volumes as well ;) On to the next!

    I didn't care for most of this, but I loved the dream stuff near the end. At this point, I feel like Guts has kinda taken a backseat so the ten or so characters he's travelling with can get a larger focus. I don't have a problem with this in theory, especially since my favorite chapters of Berserk are probably the ones that tell the backstory of Lady Farnese, but I just don't care for some of these characters (like the mermaid girl and the sailors) because they're two dimensional and so much les I didn't care for most of this, but I loved the dream stuff near the end.

I don't care much for the more fantastical elements of this because I kinda feel like I've seen so much of it before. Witches, unicorns, mermaids, and the rest are just so unoriginal compared to some of the crazy designs for apostles that Miura has come up with. I know that I'm complaining, but I think I just feel like Berserk's gotten a bit off track. Some of the stuff that's been setup with Griffith recently is great and I love the direction that's going in, so I would've loved to see more of that. Again, I really loved the stuff with Casca's dream at the end. Reading through that section really makes me feel like the end is coming sooner than later, but honestly, who knows what Miura has planned. I really love Berserk, so I look forward to seeing what happens next with Casca, and I look forward to seeing a Guts/Griffith confrontation at some point in the future (though probably not for like ten more years, tbh).

Quick recap: Guts, the Black Swordsman, cuts a swath across the demon-infested country of Midland. Once a member of the famous Band of the Hawk, until they were betrayed by their leader (and Guts’ best friend) Griffith and sacrificed to allow Griffith to gain demonic power, Guts now journeys to heal the mind of his lover Casca, blasted during the Sacrifice. Despite his surly nature and the danger associated with his presence, Guts has gained a group of traveling companions who have helped him heal a bit emotionally. At last, the ragtag bunch of misfits have landed in Elfheim, Puck and Ivalera’s homeland. It’s been a long journey, but they aren’t done yet! Witches are on watch for intruders, and send minions to fight Guts and company. Fortunately, the misunderstanding is cleared up when Archmage Gedfring arrives to explain that he was told they would be coming. Turns out that a peaceful colony of magic-users shares the island with the Fair Folk, isolated from the world but able to sense the mystical disturbances beyond. For the first time in many months, our protagonists are able to relax and take in the wonders around them. Magnifico’s plan to sell the elves for profit fails immediately, and we meet Danann, Queen of the Flower Storm. The fairy queen agrees to help cure Casca, but can only facilitate the process by granting young witch Schierke and apprentice Farnese access to Casca’s dreams. They will have to navigate her dark memories and the trauma that broke Guts’ lover in order to heal her mind. And considering the monsters in Casca’s mind, this will be no walk in the park! The art as always is detailed and excellent, with impressive splash pages of both fairyland beauty and hellish mindscape. This volume’s plotline allows for some relatively quiet and contemplative moments, and the personality growth of some characters is mentioned. (On the other hand, Puck is considered just as annoying in his hometown as abroad.) Guts even has time to consider that even if Casca is restored to sanity, their relationship may be beyond repair. The new character most likely to be appearing after this arc is Morda, a witch in her late teens or early twenties who’s bored with peaceful study and wants to see the dangerous outside world. Given her amoral attitude and the use of a wicker man as an attack puppet, Morda might not be joining the good guys. In many ways, this is a nice breather volume before we plunge back into the all-violence more typical of the series. Highly recommended if you’ve enjoyed earlier parts of the series.

    If this was the first volume of Berserk you ever stumbled upon, you could be forgiven for thinking it was a whimsical fantasy adventure and not one of the most graphically disturbing series I've ever read. There are no dismemberments and no horrifying character deaths. Guts and Pals seem to have finally found respite in the Elf Kingdom, which will make it all the more devastating when the other shoe drops. But, for now, I can enjoy it along with them.

Miura's art is fantastic as always. (Is it ever not fantastic? I pity the people whose only introduction to this masterpiece is Berserk 2016.) There's a sense of hope and camaraderie in this volume, but maybe that's been there for a while. The dynamic between the characters has been friendly for a long time now. Of course, it's hard to gauge how long it's really been when the chapters come out so slowly. When Guts has his heart-to-heart with Serpico and Roderick about friendship and learning to trust people, it doesn't really feel like a revelation. It feels like this is just the first time they've had time to breathe. For once, they don't have to worry about being attacked by giant monsters. They can just sit and drink and be dudes. I have a feeling this is all going to come crashing down after (view spoiler)[Schierke and Farnese manage to heal Casca. (hide spoiler)] Even if that works out, Griffith is still out there and Guts won't be able to rest for very long.

    I started out a little bored with this volume, but I got more invested in it towards the end. The Party gets into Elfheim and learns more about the astral world, and that Schierke’s master was balancing it with reality.

I enjoyed the party scene because we got a warm moment with Guts. He thanks his companions for helping him, and it was a nice resolution to smoothing our his distrust of others. Thanks to Roderick and Serpico, he was finally able to sit and relax, and I felt it. Farnese and Schierke through a mutual, magic sleep, travel into Casca’s brain to make sense of her trauma. This is a dream sequence done right, and I like getting Casca’s abstract perspective on the current state of things. I also felt a bittersweet nostalgia revisiting images of the Golden Age arc. Also dog Guts is weird.

    Well, as usual the art's great and the story in the book is interesting. Literally putting Casca's mind back together again is a cool idea. Although I could do without the valuable page space being dedicated to flashbacks however I do know it's probably a necessity at this point due to shear length. It is definitely not a starting point if you are not already reading the series. I did like it but I am getting a little antsy for some meaningful conclusions here.

    Only now with all those fragments of memories one is able to realise fully how good was old "Berserk", the first and the second arc. And how it became more and more poor-plotted, full of filler chapters, generic shonen manga. Lack of remarkable events and characters, lack of brutal and grimdark elements, lack of plot twists and smart plot itself — but more and more teen wizards, pirates, stupid unicorns and fanservice instead.

    Although not published in tankobon format yet, I did read the collected 8 chapters (343-351) that have been fan-translated. The series is still excellent with some new characters introduced, it's just a shame that so much has happened recently and little-to-none of it has been explored. One can only hope that it gets off hiatus more often.

    This was a amazing volume where we finally get to see them trying to fix Casca and the dream world looked pretty cool and while the symbolizing was obvious but it still made sense and made sense to. Also glad that Shierke and Farnese are given the spot light and probably will for the next volume also nice that we get some good development for Casca.

    Lovely break from the normal chaos of Berserk. Beautifully illustrated It's good. Beautiful art, and a touching story continuation for Berserk fans. Seems saccharine at first and frankly is, however we're reminded of where this story is going and what world we're in at the end of the day.
