It's been all about anime otherwise, which I've got a moderate amount of experience with.
I think the storyline from the anime was about ten volumes of the manga and about a volume was cut from the anime for... reasons, and the manga is now at 38 volumes with #39 coming this August and no end in sight as far as I know.

Yikes. It's probably good, but I kinda like stories to not get super long like that. It's really nice when an anime series wraps itself up in 1-2 seasons. When they run on forever there tends to be a lot of filler and repetition.

Repetition certainly isn't a problem and the quality has always been pretty high but I'd say after the anime storyline that the manga was never quite as dramatically compelling as a whole, though individual storylines were always strong. If I had one real criticism of the writing it's that as Berserk went along it started taking in more and more elements of "normal" fantasy that felt a bit generic.

I managed to sit through the entire first season. That's 10 hours I'll never get back.

Whenever MicShazam says he doesn't like something awesome I find myself wondering which neurotic obsession caused by a repressed childhood trauma that is going unmedicated is causing him to think so wrongly this time.
