The publisher of Berserk, Hakusensha, announced through the series’ official Twitter that a brand new artbook is coming, titled The Artwork of Berserk.

The Artwork of Berserk will be sold at the upcoming Berserk exhibition. It’ll be held in Tokyo, Ikebukuro, Sunshine City, from September 10 to September 23, 2021.

The artbook includes exclusive new artwork (the same new artwork shown at the exhibition, the cover art of volume 1 to 40, and a brand new interview with Kentaro Miura, for 3850 Yen (tax included).

How can you actually get this new Berserk artbook

This is a tricky situation. Of course, you’ll probably be able to find the artbook on reseller sites. But it’ll be particularly hard to get a hand on it, as you’ll need a proxy to buy off from sites such zs Yahoo Auction Japan.

Personally, I think it’s very likely another version of the artbook, with even more pages, will be sold a certain time after the exhibition. This is just a guess, but this scenario often happens with artbooks or booklets exclusively sold on-site like that. So for now your best bet is to simply wait. Or just go there and buy a copy yourself if you’re actually reading this from Japan.

The next Berserk chapter, ch 364, will be releasing soon on September 10. This is supposedly the last chapter Kentaro Miura worked on, which could explain why it’s coming so fast. I personally don’t believe future chapters will be coming anytime soon, but again that’s just a guess.

Miura’s assistants mentioned after he passed away that they might continue the manga, and now it’s actually continuing, so yeah. Personally, Berserk is a work that already accomplished so much I honestly wouldn’t mind if it just ended right there. I don’t have some burning desire to know what’ll happen next. Especially, the last few chapters answered some mysteries ongoing for decades too. Anyways, you can always reach me on Twitter @A_iyane07.
