Created by Kenturo Miura, Berserk is manga mayhem to the extreme - violent, horrifying, and mercilessly funny - and the wellspring for the internationally popular anime series. Not for the squeamish or the easily offended, 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 is also indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that draws the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice. But Guts won't take his fate lying down; he'll cut a crimson swath of carnage through the ranks of the damned - and anyone 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.

Review

Dans une espèce de fantasy hantée par les démons, ce manga nous attache aux pas du guerrier noir, Berserk combattant sans fin les démons qui le pourchassent, et les autres aussi.

C'est violent, très violent même, assez peu crédible, mais aussi assez jouissif par cette violence totallement superlative : le guerrier a une arbalète à répétition qu'il tire comme une gatling de la guerre de sécession, et une épée énorme, gigantesque, inhumaine, qu'il manie avec une facilité stupéfiante.
