The Story Expands... March 24 2005
By Steve Jones - Published on
Format: Paperback
Hmm... Let's see, where should I start. In volume 5 the drama and story begin to come together a lot more than in the previous volumes, so the tales unfolds at a much faster rate. The key moment in volume 5 is the confrontation with Nosferatu Zodd, who is a key character in the story. Pay close attention to the warning he gives Guts.

Okay now on to volume 6... Many things take place that cannot be missed out on if you wish to get into the ever-expanding world of Berserk. For one Guts is given an assassination attempt by Griffith to kill General Julius, the brother of the king, and Guts learns of the Band of the Hawks past from Casca while they are lost behind enemy lines, but I won't explain how they got there or anything. Also, the MOST important moment in this book occurs when Griffith is having a normal conversation with Princess Charlotte, which our protagonist Guts overhears. This conversation sets the wheels of causality/fate in motion which sends Guts on a path other than the one he is currently seeking. He decides to do this to please Griffith. But in the end, it only leads to death, and the climax of the Band of the Hawk story Arc, beginning in Volume 12 and ending in 13/14.

The Growth of Guts as a Man Feb. 15 2005
By N. S. Michael - Published on
Format: Paperback
For those who have seen the Berserk television series, very little of the manga so far released has been much of a surprise. This, by no means, is a slight against the original author's work, just a testament to how closely the anime's producers followed the rich story.

Volume #6's events may already familiar to fans of the series, but just because they know what is going to happen, doesn't mean it loses its thrill. On the contrary, as I saw events beginning to converge on the climax I knew from the series, I began to get even more interested. The best episodes were those of the last half. The attempted assasination on Griffith, Guts' own assasination assignment, Griffith's courting of the Princess, and Casca's growing connection to Guts are all pivotal to the story.

There's a particular scene in the final chapters of the book when Guts is forced to take some liberties in order to save Casca's life that awakens him to her vulnerabilities. In turn, Casca finds her own piece of mind by confiding in him why she joined the Band of the Hawk.

Most of Guts' growth as a character is seen through action. The man isn't much of a thinker and understanding his quest for purpose (and, then, vengence) is dependent mainly on the reader's observations of the actions of Guts and those he cares for. To finally get some introspective thought from the man adds much to the overall picture of his life.

All in all, a great book... a great series, but be prepared. In the next few volumes, things will come to a head. Men will die, characters you've grown to love may pay the ultimate price, and before one man can ascend to heights unimagined, great tragedy must befall him and those around him.
"From now on I'll wield this sword for him" Nov. 2 2007
By Sebastian Fernandez - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a volume that differs considerably from what the series has presented so far. The level of violence and gore drops drastically, and the action is limited to a mission in which Guts acts as a secret assassin and one short battle. This will probably disappoint some people, but on the other hand, those that want to know more about the characters and understand them better, will be greatly rewarded. This is definitely the volume with the highest contribution to the backbone of the story.

The majority of the events have to do with court politics and the conspiracies that arise when Griffith is named knight. General Julius hates the leader of the Hawks, and is willing to do whatever is necessary to stop him. This character is straightforward and open in his emotions, but we also find Minister Foss, a Machiavellian character that shows his proficient handling of politics and covert aggressiveness.

Other interesting elements of the story have to do with the relationship between Guts and Griffith and also some revelations about Casca's past. More specifically, there is a conversation between Griffith and Princess Charlotte, overheard by Gust and Casca, which provides the reader and the characters with crucial insights into the psyche of Griffith. This in turn serves as a catalyst for Guts to start thinking about his purpose in life.

This volume definitely has a slower pace and I would say that it introduces an element of philosophy that was only marginally present until now. Nevertheless, I believe that it serves an important purpose in the overall story, and therefore, will be appreciated by hardcore fans.
