- Full Description
Kentaro Miura's Berserk has outraged, horrified, and delighted manga and anime fanatics since 1989, creating an international legion of hardcore devotees and inspiring a TV series, feature films, and video games. And now the badass champion of adult fantasy manga is presented in a deluxe hardcover edition collecting the first three Berserk volumes, with following volumes to come. A demented, pathological, revenge-absorbed Conan-type meets monsters, warriors and seductive witches, and it's torture, slashing battles, ultra violence.
Whilte attending art school at Nijon University, Miura's Futanabi, a manga he created in 1985 and submitted for college admission, was published in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine and was nominated for Best New Author Work. He then created his signature dark fantasy world, Berserk Prototype, winning a prize from the Comi Manga School.
In 1989 Miura collaborated with writer Buronson, author of Fist of the North Star, on the project King of Wolves. A sequel then appeared, followed by Mirua’s first chapters of Berserk, to little fanfare, in the Japanese manga magazine Young Animal.
Berserk's popularity began to grow with the release of "The Golden Age" story arc and became a major hit, and Miura became one of a vanguard of contemporary manga authors. With the exception of his Giganto Maxia standalone project in 2013, Miura has devoted his creative efforts to Berserk.The ongoing series now reaches an astounding forty collected volumes in Japan, and sells over forty million copies internationally. It has now spawned TV and film anime series, art books, music, games, toys, and merchandise. Miura supervised 25 episodes of the 1997 anime television series and contributed to the 2004 Dreamcast video game, Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage.
