Ah, Giganto Makhia. Kentaro Miura's first original work in over two decades and ultimate proof that he did not spend his year of Berserk hiatus just lazing around, like so many people seem to accuse him of. The man obviously needed a creative break and created this very short seven chapter manga in the meantime. And you know what? Did a damn fine job with it, too.

Story - 8
Giganto Makhia is a science fiction story set a hundred million years in the future, though to be honest it feels more like a fantasy story, as you wont find any advanced technology or other elements that read more

It has been proved by the popularity of, for example, Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), that stories that usually contain giants make a lot of success. In fact, since ancient Greece, legends of giants always caused curiosity and instant rapport. My story with Giganto Makhia started like that as well.

Kentaro Miura decided to write this one-shot during the hiatus of his best-known manga Bersek, probably to clear his mind, since Bersek is being written since 1989! The story itself mixture Greek mythology with something like a futuristic mode and post-apocalyptic - or as stated in the manga: after the Great Extinction. And if giants read more

This is Kentaro Miura's first original manga in 24 years. Yes Berserk has been around for that long! This is his attempt to portray the world in 100 million years.

Story:8

The story is a fresh look on what the future could turn out to be. It has many questions of what is right and what the best choice is. The only reason I don't give this a perfect score is that it is only 6 chapters long.

Art:10

Miura is undoubtedly one of the best artists in the manga world. The visuals are beautifully drawn and very reminiscent of Berserk's art style with with all the amazing detail read more

Story:
Fun, but barren. There's clearly a lot to the world of Giganto Makhia, but due to it's limiting 7 chapters, it's unfortunate to see that a lot of this world is left to the imagination.

For a more explicit response to the narrative, it's actually pretty interesting and the characters themselves are all quite engaging. I didn't feel as though anyone was a forced character, and the comedy within it, although strange, is quite enjoyable. There's not a lot to respond to, and the narrative feels unfinished, so I can't help but feel cheated upon finishing the final chapter.


Art:
Miura is fantastic. The only issue is that read more
