It was an absolute privilege to have followed the journey of Berserk.
It happened a few days earlier, but they only broke the news to the internet today.
Miura Kentaro, the author of Berserk, has passed away. I have no words.
Berserk is one of my all-time favourite manga. It's one of the classics that's considered one of greatest manga ever created. To be honest, the first time I tried reading it I didn't vibe at all. A few years later (I think in the mid-2010s), I tried it again and binged read it in a few days.
Berserk brought a huge impact on the (dark) fantasy genre that inspired so many video games, manga, and modern pop culture. He was truly a legend and inspiration. Such a legacy, such an impact on pop culture. His legacy and his work will continue to live on and be remembered, especially in our hearts.
Thank you Miura Kentaro for creating Berserk and for the hard work.
Rest in peace, sir.
