Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine is announcing in its 19th issue (pictured), which will go on sale on September 23, that Berserk will go on hiatus. It is planned that the series will return within the first half of 2017. Berserk previously resumed serialization in June of this year, with the magazine featuring a new chapter each month.

Kentarou Miura's manga series has been serialized in Young Animal magazine since 1989. It has received multiple anime adaptations, including a 25-episode anime adaptation in 1997 by studio OLM, as well as a movie trilogy animated by Studio 4°C premiering between 2012 and 2013. The most recent anime adaptation premiered in July and was produced by Millepensee and GEMBA, with a sequel slated for Spring 2017. Young Animal magazine published the 38th volume of the manga on June 24, and also announced that the previous 37 volumes would be reprinted as the series resumed publication under a new imprint.

Berserk has been licensed in various regions, with Dark Horse licensing the series for North American release in 2003. Crunchyroll simulcast the recent Berserk (2016) TV anime in various regions, while Aniplus HD simulcast the series in Southeast Asian territories. Crunchyroll also licensed the series for home-video release.

People keep comparing Miura to Togashi in terms of frequent hiatuses. And there I'd have to disagree. While it pisses me off as well I can at least understand the former taking his breaks; dude's old.
Aren't they the same age?

An hiatus when it was reaching the part I have been looking forward to...

This is just so annoying, I'm gonna pick the manga up after it finishes (I hope it does).

I thought it was already on hiatus.

Again? Sometimes I wonder if the series should've ended with the Eclipse...

Watch the nineties anime. Frankly it is better than the manga source material.

I've already watched it.


Then be satisfied. Berserk is finished.

I know it's hard. I used to like Star Wars. But all good things must come to an end.

And this is the reason why I have absolutely no intention of touching this manga until it's over, even if that isn't for another 20 years. I don't think I'd be able to deal with this AND HxH's hiatuses.

At this point, I bet One Piece will end before Berserk does (it'll probably end before HxH as well, for that matter).

shocking news. shocking

People keep comparing Miura to Togashi in terms of frequent hiatuses. And there I'd have to disagree. While it pisses me off as well I can at least understand the former taking his breaks; dude's old. Togashi on the other hand is just a lazy fuck who despite getting some assistants to help him can't be arsed to get to work for more than a month.

Whoops, ended up as a Togashi rant. Mea culpa.

Oh well, he fucked up the whole manga after the Conviction arc.

I don't care anymore.

Maybe in 20 years, if the manga ends, Madhouse will do justice with it, I hope I'm still alive then.

Good god in his heaven, I was about to continue reading Berserk after years of patience so I can read it gloriously.

Wow, surprising!... Not. At this point I doubt any reader will get surprised by Berserk's hiatus ever again.
