What else could I recommend?
Possibly the greatest Manga ever written, Berserk by Kentaro Miura is one of my all time fave comics.
It’s evoked tears, laughter, anger, and has even turned my stomach on occasion.
The story follows Guts (yeah, that’s his name. Total badass), the Black Swordsman, as he travels the land slaying the demon apostles of the Godhand that took everything from him.
Y’see, Guts used to be part of the Band of the Hawk, a group of mercenaries led by Griffith.
But à la Clive Barker, Griffith uses a crimson behelit to summon the Godhand, a group of Nightmare inducing figures, Angels to some, Demons to others, and sacrifices EVERYONE so that he may gain Absolute power and take his seat at the head of the Godhand.
Well, Guts manages to escape, then vows to take revenge on the man that ruined everything, scouring the land for the demonic apostles. Stopping at nothing until Griffith pays for his sins.
I love this series. So much. If you want to watch the anime, I say stick to the 1997 series. Just avoid the newer seasons that have come out (2016-17) They bad. 👀 Real bad.
So put your glasses on, nothing will be wrong. Even mother will show you another way. Tell me why, tell me why, tell me what you want! - that’s from the theme song. Check it out, it’s 🔥🔥🔥 #circleofbookishfriends #bookstagram #demons
