In a recent interview with Young Animal magazine, series creator Kentarou Miura revealed that the project will feature Guts in his “Black Swordsman” role, which hasn’t appeared in an animated adaptation to date. He also noted that the Berserk manga will go on hiatus, with the next chapter hitting “around” summer 2016. When it returns, the Berserk manga will be published as an irregular series.
Berserk began publication in Young Animal in 1989. The series currently spans 35 volumes, with the most recent hitting Japanese retailers in March 2013. As of July, 35 million copies of the title are in print, with 27 million sold in Japan and 8 million overseas. The series spawned a 25-episode anime series in 1997, as well as three-film project, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc.
A promotional video and a pair of visuals were released for the project in December. You can check both out below:
