According to the latest issue of manga magazine Young Animal, Miura Kentarou is going to write a short manga named "Gigantomakhia", which will be serialized in the next 6 issues of Young Animal. The name is drawn from Greek mythology and is about an epic war between forces led by Zeus and nether forces led by giant Alcyoneus. After that, he will restart the manga "Berserk" which has been in hiatus since end of 2012.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Because apparently finishing the best-selling dark fantasy epic he started 24 years ago is not a priority.

Anyway, that new manga sounds badass and I'm happy that it is coming back so I guess this is very good news.

Oh yeah, playing IdolM@ster always seem to be a much higher priority for Miura-sensei LOL

As I suspected, Miura stocked up chapters to release them as a bunch. In my opinion the better alternative to the dreaded "3 chapters, hiatus" schedule he used for the past years. That some of the stock was a totally new series is a suprise, but thankfully one of the pleasant ones. I personally look forward to seeing crazy spaceships and other potential cool stuff that Miura might draw for his little sci-fi series (although I would be a bit happier if these 6 chapters were Berserk chapters).

I know you are joking, but some people actually take this seriously. So here's an explanation for them.

Oh wow finally there's news.
I always hoped that there will be something big coming after the kind of special latest chapter.
Hopefully he will release chapters regularly.
Monthly releases is really all I ask for. :/

I hope he finish it in the next 20 or so chapters, I don't care if it's rushed, a conclusion is needed and the latest arcs of Berserk range from mediocre to bad, and they made me lose interest in the series, along with the fact that a certain main character is pretty much useless.

Only 20 chapters? With the giant amount of plot points left and Miura himself stating that Berserk was around 60-70% 5 or 6 years ago in an interview? That is not happening, Berserk ending around chapter 500 seems very likely if you ask me.
The final fight alone is probably going to take the amount of chapters you just listed.

Also, that certain main character you talk about will be the main focus in the next arc so we should expect something big. Not to mention that Miura is still only in his 40s and it is very likely that he will finish Berserk before he dies... which is something that most people seem to expect from him for some reasons. We could now start the everlasting discussion about the direction Berserk is taking but imho that should not be the focus of this thread.

No, it just means he continues. Why would he restart the entire series after 333 chapters?

Great news, I hope he had a good rest and can continue the manga now. I'm also interested to see how his new manga is going to be.

My thoughts exactly!
Is nice that he is doing something new, about greek mythology (that I love), I am sure is gonna be awesome, but really...1 year without a new chapter of Berserk, no wonder why I think I will be dead and won't be seeing the end of it...

Does that mean in march or april a new chapter of Berserk will be released? That's okay for me. Also I'm interested in this Gigant Makia because greek mythology is epic, also I expect to see some titans.

Young Animal is a bi-weekly, so 6 chapters in a row means 3 months.

Finally some news about Berserk. Hopefully it does actually come back from its hiatus and we actually get more frequent chapters.
This is interesting news, too. I'm curious what else he could do aside from Berserk.

Now, that's a good news. I thought that i won't hear news again about Berserk (that's proved to be wrong) and the end of "the journey of Guts" will becomes just a legend (that's wrong too... hopefully)

oh, by the way... i'm also interested in this new manga Miura created, i hope it's
1. very bad, because if it's very good, some people want some sequel from it, which will disturb miura in creating berserk (well, probably not, but there is always probability).
2. it's very good, and have nice ending, so there will be no sequel.

last is what i do not want
3. it's average.

Well, I've been waiting on berserk forever so w/e, I can wait a bit more. At this point I'm more interested in that short.. did they say what type of tone it would have? Berserk-ish? I suppose if it's young animal it won't be too PG.

Bad wording on the headline, restart makes it sound like he's redoing the manga from scratch.

I was so damn happy when I saw the first chapter a few days ago. Now this is coming back, I'll probably start reading this soon as well.

Heh, I'll pray that NANA and Hunter x Hunter will come back later this year as well. *crosses fingers*

Miura probably ran out of energy after all those years of sticking with Berserk. Thus, he is distracting himself with other activities, either by playing video games (I@ms included) or drawing a new manga. I'm sure he feels missing-out on the chance to draw other settings and stories because his creative life has been consumed by Berserk.

With that, I'm not sure why didn't make an Idol manga to catch up with the times :D Instead, we are stuck with probably another seinen adventure manga.

I find it funny that I've been getting into Berserk and this update rolls around. I hope Miura decides to finish it for good once he continues the story and decides not to go on hiatus again.

You know what, the reason/excuse that was given in Young Animal when Berserk went missing is always that Miura is on some "research activities". I guess playing IdolM@ster probably counts as one lol.

Well, finally he got some motivation, at-least, to release a news about it... Just hope he would continue it on regular bases and if it's just one or two chapters restart, that would be really sucks.

I can see that happening. If

I'm happy that he's coming back to writing Berserk. I hope he manages to finish it before too long. It might actually be nice to him to work on something else and move on from Berserk. 25 years on any one project is a LOOONNG time. He's been working on it longer than Marcel Proust did on "In Search of Lost Time"

I didn't have to wait that long. Hehe. But I am really glad, because this is my favorite manga and I want to see the end. I need to see how Guts destroys Griffith's pretty face and his stupid loyal herd.
