Berserk (Japanese: ベルセルク) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by the late Kentaro Miura.
Following Miura's death in May 2021, the final chapter that he wrote and illustrated was published posthumously in September 2021 in Hakusensha's semimonthly magazine Young Animal. On June 24, 2022, the series resumed under the supervision of Miura's fellow manga artist and childhood friend Kouji Mori and Miura's group of assistants and apprentices from Studio Gaga.
Berserk was adapted into a 25-episode anime television series by OLM, which covered the Golden Age story arc, and was broadcast from October 1997 to March 1998. The Golden Age arc was also adapted into a trilogy of theatrical anime films mentioned above.
A second 24-episode anime television series adaptation by LIDENFILMS covering the Conviction arc and the first half of the Hawk of the Millennium Empire arc was broadcast for two seasons in 2016 and 2017.
