In May 2021, Kentaro Miura fans said goodbye to one of the most recognized authors of the manga, so now it is the turn to say goodbye to his most popular work.
As of September 10 and on the pages of Kodansha’s Young Animal magazine, fans of ‘Berserk’ will find the last chapter that the author wrote, corresponding to 364 of the saga.
Although the news alone will surely impact more th an one, the publisher does not plan to stop there, since it will include a color page, a poster with the best scenes of the work and a brochure with the title ‘One last message to Kentaro Miura ‘.
In this, the messages of fans after the death of the author on May 6 due to an aortic dissection will be captured, offering a final goodbye to the man who inspired an entire generation.
Here we did not come to turn a blind eye
While a new chapter of ‘Berserk’ is something that many will surely appreciate, we cannot turn our gaze the other way when the life of one of the most talented men was extinguished at the age of 54.
Stress and overwork played a major role in his passing, with a posting schedule allowing only two vacation days a year and 4 hours of sleep a day.
The wear and tear over the years was clearly reflected in the publication of the story, which took longer and longer between chapter and chapter, without reporting his state of health, rather than by footnotes in the compiled volumes.
With a job that took his whole life to be taken from him, it’s hard to thank for another chapter, when all the true fans are clamoring for better working conditions for the creators of stories that inspire millions around the world.
