Not sure if it's been mentioned before, but volume 31 has a lot of instances where a small portion of the bottom is cut off, cutting of lines of text.

Wow, that's a bummer. Thanks for the heads up.

that gives me another thing to fix before the next swap; going through v31 and edit the text whenever the text is cut off.

Thanks for finding that quote namu_khao, it saves me the time to write something up again :)

illya_, when you say you're going to fix earlier volumes, do you mean some of the first volumes too? I ask because I want to start reading but if you're making major fixes to the early volumes, I'll wait to download them. Or is there a range of volumes that don't have any problems? Or are you only adding a few color images to the early volumes? Basically I'm trying to weigh the benefits of waiting against the fact that I'm going to go crazy wondering what happens after the end of the anime.

@Slusho - This is my changelog atm (note that this is what I have done atm, I will do more before I swap the torrent):

Edit: for the changelog see the torrent description.

Since that wall of text might not say much to you I just now uploaded the first 32 volumes to this mega folder. (No v33+ because of upload issues)
Download volume 1-3 and you will be able to see what I am aiming at regarding consistency (or you can just download all of them if you want to, just note that these are not final I will tweak them more, try to redraw more spreads and so on...).

For volume 33-37 I will release them all as ~4200px height pngs images, however I want to be (almost) completely satisfied before I release them as such. Volume 37 as at that level already and has been included in the current torrent. Volume 33 is more or less at the level I want it to be (but have not been swapped in). Volume 36 is ~70% of the level I want it to be (so not swapped in yet). Volume 34-35 however will require a lot more cleaning before I am happy with them (so I'm keeping the jpeg-version of these in the torrent meanwhile).

I can really recommend downloading v32 from mega above, since wolfram for some reason decided to not have the color white in his used palette (which made all the pages grey...). Other than that I recommend to check my changelog above and see if something looks worthy for a redownload. Hopefully by making these available from mega there is no problem regarding ratio :)

The proper short answer to your question: There are no real 'problems' in any of the volumes, I am just neating it up. (on 2nd thought volume 31 have an issue with missing text, this will be fixed once I swap the torrent but I have not bought a new book for that yet).

Wow, thanks so much for uploading them! I've downloaded everything and it looks so much better than all the other versions out there. Great work!

New swap requested (approval pending and now accepted):
- added the proper release for volume 36
- made adjustments to all the other files, for consistency, accuracy and quality (see below).

I've modified all volumes, adjusted file order, first page, index page, image naming scheme, archive naming scheme, all these done for consistency and accuracy.
Added colorpages, joined spread pages, replaced images with better versions. Optimized pngs and jpegs. Adjusted color palette (v32). Added missing text to pages. Replaced jpeg images with pngs when possible (to avoid artifacts and enable later adjustments).

Edit: See the torrent descriptions changelog for details on the swap.

Edit, clarification note:
I have not added the missing text to v31 yet, since I have not gotten my copy of v31. Also v34 and v35 still have a lot of jpegs images left.
This will be fixed for the next swap.

There is also quite a few spreads left to be redrawn, I will try to do as many as I can before the next swap.

I appreciate if you can report any error you find in the files (such as missing/cut text, image looking strange and so on) so that
these can be corrected in a future update.

This is absolutely amazing work. I just finished reading everything I've been meaning to, but I felt sad that when I first read Berserk, my absolute favorite manga, back in '09, the quality was garbage for so many of the chapters. I decided I wanted to reread it, and I was hoping to find updated scans, but this blew my mind. I will follow this torrent religiously. Thank you so much.

Question is this still on going? last time ive read and watched berserk was in the 90s and ive  jst recently DLed the 3 part movie of it planning on watching it but im jst curious if it has ended with the manga then id rather read it from the manga then watch the movie since i already know that the movies ended right where the original series ended and that disappoints me.

To my surprise, yes it's still going. We have witnessed the release of 3 chapters or so just this year!

@Xemnarth, nito, mike307, DesoNoto, Cereberus - Thanks guys :)

@ Cereberus - Below are my thoughts on the Berserk releases you mention:


Also: if you find any colorpages which we don't have we will kill for them! :D We are also really interested in digitally published Berserk (not sure if those exist), to see how they compare to the files we have.
