Review quote

A rousing tale of intrepid heroes, horrid villains and wicked supernatural creatures. Publishers Weekly The Guin Saga was the most [inspiration for Berserk]. I started reading it in junior high and I m still reading the new volume every month. Berserk creator Kentaro Miura This is classic fantasy at its best. Book Sense (Fall 2003 Science Fiction and Fantasy Top Ten) Readers should be warned that once you start this journey, it will be nearly impossible to leave it unfinished. SFRevu Japan s answer to The Lord of the Rings. The Globe and Mail Kaoru Kurimoto manages the flurry of situations being set up and resolved like the trick of a putting a hand on a table with fingers spread out, then stabbing a blade between the outstretched digits. The speed and coordination is that amazing. Scott Green, Ain t It Cool News "show more
