19th issue of Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine of 2016 is announcing on Friday that Kentarou Miura’s Berserk manga will go on hiatus until early 2017. The manga had just returned recently as a monthly series in June from an earlier hiatus.
The manga follows Guts, a superhumanly strong warrior who wields a large sword, as he wanders a dark medieval world filled with demons, corrupt and decadent nobles, and other horrors. Every night, he is assailed by demons, attracted to the curse branded on him after a traumatic event. He makes his way through the world on a quest to slay a former friend turned demon, who took everything away from him.
