2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Sebastian Fernandez on 16 Nov. 2007
Format: Paperback
After a series of volumes in which happiness abounded and things were looking up, this installment represents a turning point in the story and a return to darker times. At the end of the previous volume, Guts swiftly defeated Griffith and abandoned him and the Band of Hawks. Guts did this in an effort to seek his destiny and his dream instead of just following Griffith's. But now he is already having doubts, especially since for the first time in his life he had a group of people he could call friends.

Griffith has been greatly affected by Guts' departure but is still pursuing his dream, and in the process he is getting romantically involved with Princess Charlotte. But there will be repercussions from his actions. In the meantime, Casca, who had started developing a friendship with Guts, misses him greatly, as does a good portion of the Band of the Hawks.

There are two things that make this an outstanding volume in this superb series. First, the story speeds forward into darker times with an intensity seldom seen, but also manages to insert some interesting elements in the process. Second, you will get to witness one of the most awaited moments of the series, and one which allows the creator to show his magnificent ability for detailed and vivid drawings.

Once again, we get a healthy dose of violence and gore, but this installment contains a much higher concentration of sexual scenes than any of the previous ones. There are even elements of incest, and some of the allusions get bolder and bolder. Moreover, some of these elements are efficiently used in helping understand better the psyche of the characters. Fans of the series will likely find this volume to be one of the best in the series so far.

A great read for adults 22 Oct. 2005
By Marc Dell Angelo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you've found yourself tiring of high school comedies & ninja kids, but still want engaging graphic storytelling, then do yourself a favor & give this series a try.

By volume 9, Miura's style is at it's height. This volume is the end of the beginning, so to speak - the good times of comraderie, romping around as a mercenary gang, climbing up the midland social ladder - are coming to a sudden and violent end. Griffith's ambition may destroy the hawks once and for all...

The series is now almost to the point where the Anime left off..and believe me, you want to see what happens next.

Berserk- Manga of Mangas 2 8 Nov. 2005
By Corum Seth Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Background (general series) info: In the feudal era, a time of demons and knights, one man refuses to let anyone else control his destiny. Gatsu, a mercernary who recently left the infamous "Band of the Hawk," wanders and trains to become even stronger. As the protagonist of the series, Guts approaches battle with a mixture of savagery and cunning that is utterly destructive.

This issue: Guts has just left his post in the mercernary group, the Hawks. To do so, he defeated Griffith in a duel. Upon gaining his freedom, he wanders alone into the woods, confronted by the Knight of Skeleton. Strangely, this awesome figure utters advice that he believes will save Guts' life. Something incredibly ominous approaches. Something is about to happen that will change the lives of Guts, Caska, and Griffith forever.

If you enjoy a good plot, you cannot go wrong with Berserk. It is such a strange and skillful blend of fantasy and realism that you become completely submerged in it. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys action and supernatural intrigue.
*Spoiler Free* Beserk vol.9 review: The Struggle Begins 23 Jan. 2013
By Mugiwara No Morpheus - Published on Amazon.com
*Intro/Synopsis*
Berserk, often hailed as one of the premier examples of adult manga, began publication in 1990. Written and illustrated by Kentaro Miura, the title is set in a dark fantasy inspired medieval Europe, following the exploits of wandering mercenary Guts. Weaving great action with eye popping art; it also features excellent characterization, sweeping epic storylines which span years of the characters' lives, and intense violence/horror. Berserk gained popularity in America from the limited 25 episode anime, and has spawned 3 movies, 2 videogame, and numerous action figures. New chapters of berserk are still released, unfortunately its on a fairly erratic schedule. This is one of the most emotionally engrossing manga series I've read, and comes highly recommended to fans of seinen manga, and graphic literature in general.

*Story/Content*
Volume 9 marks the beginning of some major changes for the Band of the Hawk (see Berserk, Vol. 8). With things seemingly in disarray due to a major departure in the group, will the mercenaries be able stick together? This chapter illustrates the beginning of some dark times for the current coalition. There are some incredibly touching moments within, but also acts of incredible savagery and unsettling violence. The art in this chapter maintains the high standards set by previous books. While another volume light on action, whats here will please. We also briefly catch a glimpse of a mysterious dark character, who gives Guts an ominous warning of things to come. One issue, volume 9 contains a roughly 1 year time-skip, but really doesn't illustrate this to the reader other than through a few lines of dialogue. This should have been emphasized more clearly, but did little to detract from the overall story. The story is about to really gear up so grab Berserk, Vol. 10 for more tales of The Struggler

*Production*
As far as production goes, this book is fairly typical of what one would expect from a manga volume released in the US. Roughly 260 pages, featuring eight to eleven chapters of about 16-18 pages each. Bound in a softcover, and printed on classic manga/newsprint style paper. The series appears to be wholly uncensored in the US, featuring a competent translation, along with uncensored gore and nudity. My one gripe being; up to this point the sound effects have gone untranslated.

*Overall*
I don't have much bad to say about Berserk, other than its not for the squeamish or faint of heart. The art is truly breathtaking, and not only in it's action panels. Every character, set piece, and background is expertly rendered, with a loving attention to detail that demonstrates Miura's skill as a mangaka. That being said, the action panels are some of the best I've seen ;D. Fortunately, the story is quite enjoyable as well. Featuring tales of friendship, romance, Ambition, heartbreak, and tragedy. I became emotionally invested in several members of the main cast, thanks in part to good interpersonal character growth. It really can't be stated enough that Berserk does feature depictions of sex, and extreme graphic violence. The depictions of intercourse are pretty tame though, mostly featuring one person on top of the other, and some nipples. The violence and horror elements, on the other hand, can be quite grotesque, leaving little to the imagination. I'd recommend this series to anyone interested in a story with amazing art, cool characters, and a finely woven tale ages 18 and up.

This it's a manga that you must have. 25 Nov. 2013
By Robert Giarony Gavarrete Galeas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an awesome manga, I'm trying to buy them all because it has an interesting story and this manga is one that I wanted to continue with the story of the anime. The price is at his best, because I have seen it very expensive and know I could get it at a lower price.
