At age 6 I was born without a face
- Jul 1, 2020
For those unable to read japanese (like me) Kentaro Miura, creator of one of the most acclaimed, long-running and influential mangas of all time, Berserk, has died of aortic dissection at 54 years old.
It was always a meme with how glacial the release schedule of Berserk was, but now I'm genuinely worried about the future of the manga. Obviously Miura's had a team backing him for years, and will definitely (GOD I FUCKING HOPE SO) have left scripts and outlines of the story for them to read. But with the vision of Miura now being exclusively posthumous, everything is up in the air. The possibility that we will never get to see the end of the manga just became massively more likely.
RIP man. Gone too soon, but at least he got to see his work appreciated and celebrated worldwide and left a legacy that will far outlast most of us.
