On June 24, 2016, after 39 months, a new volume (38) of Kentarō Miura’s Berserk manga was released in Japan. It’s going to be a pretty close period between America releases, as, for the first time since the November 20, 2013 release of volume 37, Dark Horse has a new volume scheduled.
Discussing the release, now available for order, Dark Horse says
After over three years of anticipation by fans, from creator Kentaro Miura (Giganto Maxia, Japan, King of Wolves) comes Berserk Volume 38, a sprawling adult fantasy epic of fierce imagination!
On July 5, Guts the Black Swordsman and company will reach the isle of Skellig in hopes that elven magic can cure the afflicted Casca, but the cure could come at a deadly cost. Meanwhile, Guts’s Band of the Hawk comrade Rickert journeys to the city of Falconia, the seat of power for Griffith, the resurrected former Hawks commander. But the glittering towers of Falconia cast the darkest of shadows, and a legion of demonic monstrosities dwell in the darkness!
This is one of the most popular and longest-running seinen manga series ever published in North America. Berserk has also recently reemerged on the New York Times best-selling manga list!
Volume 38 is now available for preorder on Amazon.com
