As someone who has just finished marathoning the entire berserk manga with no prior knowledge of the series, I must say I'm extremely disappointed. The story in itself is fine, and so are the characters. But god fucking damn, it took the author 20 fucking years just to get where we are now in the story? Are you fucking kidding me? With the rate of plot progression and character development, I just can't believe that's how long its taken to get to this point.
