any ETA on Volume 38???
Nope, this is the info that I got:
Berserk v38 will be out in japan on june 24 and it will have a new (uglier) cover design.
(source: http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=14960.0 )

I still don't have any idea when Dark Horse will publish said volume in english. And once it has been published I will have to scan and edit it (I'll try to quickly release a lq version first, as I did with v37).

I'll make sure to post a ETA once I have it scanned and started editing it.

Hi guys! Just started reading Berserk and all the chapters I've read have been poorly translated. I heard about this site and would love to continue reading but I need a seeder haha.
Hopefully I'll get one soon!

@JLannister - Yes, these are the properly translated chapters.

Most probably the reason you do not got any seeds are because you are not using a whitelisted torrent application (or version): https://bakabt.me/whitelist.php

If you have any issues with downloading, please go to the forums or irc for support, the comments here are supposed to be about the series. :)

possibly a dumb question. The description says Dark Horse scans. so how come all of the volumes says Jets Comics? I have seen Dark Horse comic books before, they always have their Black Horse logo. Haven't seen that on these scans. I checked a dark horse  copy on amazon, the preview pages, look identical in text except the covers, also they don;t have any color but that might be limitation of the preview. also noticed that preview had dark horse ads for other manga they publish. so are these dark horse scans but without covers/ads and added in Jets Comics covers?

@reallygreen - Indeed, you are correct. The covers have been changed changed to the japanese ones. Color pages have been added. Adds have been removed.

There are a couple of reasons for changing the covers:
- The available scans of the Dark Horse volumes had rather bad looking covers (probably copies from the library).
- There where already good quality scans of the japanese covers available.
- People seemed to prefer the japanese covers. (Not sure that will be the case with volume 38+, since they changed cover style...)
- Consistency. When volume 1-32 already had the japanese covers, I saw no reason to change that with the later ones.

And the adds really doesnt add anything, so they are removed.
I also try to add Color Pages and Posters that did not make it into the Dark Horse volumes (neither the japanese nor the english volumes have color pages), but were part of the magazine episodes (chapters).

I'm currently moving into smaller accommodations and getting rid of all my books I can't bring with me.  The collection includes every Dark Horse copy of Berserk.  I could full page scan the front, spine and back covers to replace the Jet comics covers if you think it's a good idea to swap them.

I only ask because you commented that the only scans of the Dark Horse copies were bad and I could supply you with good copies before I sell them.

(would it be a good idea to include both just for the sake of having them?)

@nocadian - It is always nice to have the option of using them. :) So I would love if you could scan the front covers.
(I myself don't care about the spine and back cover, but if it doesnt take more than a few minutes of work then those would be nice as well).

Not decided on how to use them yet, but if we have them in good quality then I see no reason not to add them into the files in a future swap. As you wrote, it seem like a goodidea to include both just for the sake of having them :)
At the moment I prefer to have the japanese covers as the first page of each volume, they could be placed after that, or to mark the end of each volume...
Oh well, we can always decide later.

Sorry to butt in, don't mean to be rude, but I'd like to say that if you do decide to add the Dark Horse covers, you should definitely keep the originals as well. They look much nicer and have a little bit of extra art by Miura on the back.

Also, with all due respect to nocadian, I don't see any real value in adding DH covers at all, other than for sake of completeness. They add nothing new, don't look anywhere near as good as the Japanese originals and have those atrocious blurbs at the back that are just embarrassing to read.
For the record, I also own all the DH volumes and I very much prefer to have an improved digital alternative which looks exactly like what we have here.

The only thing that should be added, IMO, is the alternate Volume 1 cover that came out this year.

Long story short, I think this collection is almost perfect as it is now.

@Kukuru - You are not rude at all, it is good to hear opinions.

The japanese covers are here to stay, there was never any plan to remove them.


Rant below regarding my thoughts (atm) on covers and their place in the files:

The old japanese covers will stay as first page for volume 01-37.
They have the most cover art, look better, and were the original cover. Changing/removing these would feel wrong.

The new japanese covers looks horrible, but will most probably be our pick for first page in volume 38+.
And for consistencies sake we should add these covers as well to volume 01-37. Maybe behind the original cover, or as the last file to mark the end of the volumes.

Yesterday I was leaning towards putting the Dark Horse covers to mark the end of the volume.
Seeing how that spot is now taken, I am not sure where they would be suitably placed.

I won't do anything rash, and will post the plans quite a while before implementing any changes (I'll probably also create a mega folder with all the changed files a month or two before the swap so I can get feedback in the planned changes)


@ceh430 - I'll put those on the "high priority" list of stuff to fix before the next swap. Thank you for the information.

I have problem with the seeds, like I don't have any. I checked the Client whitelist and I couldn't find μTorrent 3.4.7 (which I use). Is that the reason?

Yeah, I've been trying to get the previous Berserk (Darkhorse published) titles from the past but unfortunately they're extremely hard to find now and I wrote a letter to them to attempt to at least re-license and issue the old Berserk volumes in digital form.  I received a response back stating they were trying to get the older volumes re-released and in digital so we'll never run short again.   Until they get it done I'll be back to read this particular version and purchase the newer tankobans as they come out in the US.  

Thanks so much for releasing the entire set.  I'm mad I can't find original copies for sale.  I mean, Berserk came out way before Game of Thrones xD  I'm sure Miura was Martin's Sensei xD.  

Also LONG LIVE Farnese!  Along with Charlotte and Casca and a few random village girls they're pretty hot :D!
