Gats, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks refuge from the demons that hunt him and vengeance against the man who made him a victim on his altar. With only his titanic strength, skill, and sword, Gats must fight against a cruel doom while a battle with hatred little by little robs him of his humanity. Berserk is a dark and thought-provoking story of fierce battle and ruthless doom.
Also included in this manga is chapter zero, the Berserk Prototype, a prototype of the first chapter of the original manga drawn by Kentaro Miura in 1988. It differs from the original manga by its drawings and some changes in the characters.
