BERSERK News: A BRIEF COMMENT FROM A KENTARO MIURA ASSISTANT UNLEASHES SPECULATIONS THAT BERSERK WILL CONTINUE, BUT IT’S NOTHING FOR SURE
A few days ago, it was revealed that Kentaro Miura, creator of Berserk, passed away at the age of 54. His death occurred on May 6, but it was barely made public.
His family preferred to handle his funeral in the most intimate way possible, and that is why it was only days later that he decided to share the news of his death. Due to the above, no one knows what will happen to the adventures of Guts and his friends. It is a great unknown.
WILL OR NOT FOLLOW THE BERSERK MANGA WITH ANOTHER CREATIVE?
However, a day after the report of Miura’s death, one of the assistants of this mangaka published a message that has sparked a lot of speculation.
On his Twitter account of his, @MRko_aki___, he shared ‘very well, I will do my best’. Is it a sign that the manga will continue? Unfortunately, it is far from clear. Here it should be noted that although the creator of Berserk had staff to help him, he did a lot of the work.
The highly detailed Berserk manga illustrations were the responsibility of Kentaro Miura.
Despite the fact that this mangaka went from working with ink and paper to using digital media, he continued to devote the same attention to his works. It is the refined talent since he began his career when he was just 10 years old, and that he has honed through multiple jobs. Could an assistant continue the series?
MANY HOPE THERE IS SOMETHING MORE BEHIND THE MESSAGE
This is why some believe that @MRko_aki___ comments are to the effect that he will go ahead on his account. It is not implied that he is going to take over Berserk.
Here who should speak about it is the publisher that published the manga, Hakusensha. Only it can confirm whether or not Miura’s work will be continued. But it is clearly too early to talk about it. The biggest mystery is how it will all go on.
It is not known if Kentaro Miura left notes about what the outcome of Berserk would be like, and how it would be reached. If this information exists, one or more mangaka could continue, although adding their own elements.
In the world of comics, it is normal that when an author leaves his place, another takes it. But in the manga it is not like that. When a creative dies, the chances of a continuation are slim. The right circumstances must exist.
