Honestly, I never saw the appeal in Berserk. Looked like another double dose of grimdark and edgy.

Final Fantasy 14 was full of people as Dark Knights holding vigil the last couple days, and Bards using the 'perform' action to play Guts' Theme, as the player community of 14 is, if nothing else, good at that kind of stuff.

Can hear Guts' Theme play in the background.

The man was the next incarnation of Tolkien, and the world is poorer for his passing. May he rest in peace.

Gimme a triple-dose. Olivier Jean-Marie, creator of Zig & Sharko also passed away.

I read on Reddit that he had story-boarded the rest of the story and that he had strong control over the IP, so there is hope that there will be a coherent ending to the story. I'm sure there will always be the question of 'Is this how Miura would have wanted it', but at least there's something.

I wonder what the future will be for the story though, it's too large of an IP to be left alone so someone is bound to continue it eventually.

Anyways RIP Miura, your works have thought me that life is worth fighting for, regardless of the outcome.

We've lost a pillar of both manga and grimdark, I feel sad we'll probably never know the end of that masterpiece. Even if others step up, it'll not be the same, and unless he told them of the storyboard for the rest of the story, it'll feel like desecration to continue...

I've never read Berserk but I know of it.. I bid him farewell and may he rest in peace, another great artist has gone. :'(

The crunch anime and manga artists endure makes the crunch the video game industry look like a cakewalk.

Anyways, he didn't die of overwork. He used to do overwork at first but not anymore. Berserk wasn't drawn by Miura anymore but for his mangakas of the Studio Gaga

@Boomfly: The saddest part is that this is not an isolated outlying case, but the norm amongst mangaka. It's an industry that makes video game companies and their crunches look positively lax and benign in comparison.

I never got into Berserk but I feel everyone's pain at the news of this loss. This makes me worried about other mangaka that don't take care of themselves and push themselves to pen 12 hour days. It also makes me think critically of Oda for seemingly refusing to end OnePiece. No one lives forever

No no no no nononononono NOOOOO!!! I've been reading Berserk for Going on 2 decades, now it will never be completed! This hurts.

From his own statements: he hadn't had two days off in a row for years and slept 4 hours a day. There's no inborn 'talent', he sacrificed his body and mind for the sake of his art. Draw for ~18h a day for 19 years, you'll be as good as him. (Hiatuses started after 19 years.)
