For the first two weeks of G4 Rewind: Anime Style, we showed you some great shoujo series, but now it’s time for something a little more manly...
That’s right. It’s Kentaro Miura's Berserk, the manliest manga that ever manned its manliness of manhood.
Berserk is set back in ye olde days of...well...old when men battled in the field with swords instead of on Xbox Live with MA5C Assault Rifles. Our hero Guts is the epitome of a manly man. He wields a giant sword, he’s as strong as an ox, and he’s known as “The Black Swordsman.”
Simply put, he’s a jerk who can kick your butt and he’s not going to apologize for it.
For the first two volumes or so, Guts simply traverses the country as a lone mercenary who likes to kill demons. His reputation precedes him. Not much plot. Just a badass man hunting down a power-hungry, homicidal cleric corrupted by the forces of darkness.
