About the Author
While attending college at Nihon University, in 1988, Kentaro Miura debuted a 48-page manga known as Berserk Prototype, an introduction to the current Berserk fantasy world. It went on to win Miura a prize from the Comi Manga School. In 1989, after receiving a doctorate degree, Kentarou started a project titled King of Wolves based on a script by Buronson, writer of Hokuto no Ken (Fist Of The North Star).
In 1990, the first volume Berserk was released with a relatively limited success. Miura again collaborated with Buronson on manga entitled Japan. Miura's fame grew after Berserk began "The Golden Age" story arc and the huge success of this masterpiece made of him one of the most prominent contemporary manga artists.
In 1997, Miura supervised the production of 25 anime episodes of Berserk that aired in the same year on NTV.
The series has also spawned a whole host of merchandise, both official and fan made, ranging from statues and action figures, to key rings, video games, and a trading card game. In 2002, Kentaro Miura received the second place in the Tezuka Osamu (Astro Boy) Cultural Prize of Excellence for Berserk. The author lives in Tokyo, Japan.

In volume seven, Guts and Casca finally come to an understanding with each other, and Guts gains a title that will follow him on the battlefield and make him both feared and hated. Also, a little of Casca's history with the Band of the Hawk, as well as some of Griffith's darker side, is revealed. By the end, the Band of the Hawk are on the war path once again, but this time it's against an opponent that may not be beatable.
Through the first seven volumes of the Berserk manga, I only found an issue with only two of them. One was more of a moral issue than anything else, and the other was simply that I was bored with the happenings and the plot-advancement. Now that things are back to norm for the manga, I don't expect many more disappointments, and I can, in fact, guarantee that Berserk will only get better from here on out, especially since the end of the Guts's history is near and his constant battle against demons and monsters in his present life is about to continue. So, if you liked the anime or have started reading the manga, then now is not to time to drop out of it; Berserk still is one of the better manga on the market today, and I highly recommend it to adult readers.
The first edition spines have the horse and logo together. Reprints have horse on to_O and logo at the bottom. Good for people who ist want itit, a llittle annoying for those who want a collection.
