Koe no Katachi is good and I love how it tells stories most people wouldn't be willing to tell but I don't think it reaches the same level of Berserk, mostly because Berserk for me ticks every single box for how much I like a manga, 10/10.

The Art, the Characters, the Setting, The Pace, The Character Development, all of which are spot on in Berserk better than I have seen in anything else. The character dynamics and the writing are so fantastic.

The way he draws makes it seem like a complete world, not just the story of Guts and the Gang.

>>100939845
But right now, Gut's isn't even on a level where he can touch Griffith, and the way Berserk works, he's not getting any Shoujen power boost just in time for special battles.

Also Griffith isn't even a bad guy anymore. Infact if we are being honest at this point Guts is doing worse for Humanity than Griffith is, looking at a Utilitarian Standpoint

But there are lots of mangas better than berserk. Try Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. After all, if Berserk was better it wouldn't be on hiatus so much. The only thing worse must be hunter x hunter since that's on hiatus even more.

Read the manga first, then either the anime or the movies if you want to. The manga has the most detail and the best presentation of the story overall with the anime/movies basically just being for the fans that want to see it again in different formats.

>tfw I'm a pleb who can't into art
I wish I could quantify manga art beyond "this one is more detailed than that one".

>>100946232
It depends on what you're looking for, really. Berserk is one of the top of its genre (dark fantasy/battle), but what about other genres? The art is outstanding but I recall that Ubel Blatt, Blame, I am a Hero, Ressentiment, 13 Club (also Prison School, but it's almost exclusively used for fanservice) all have art that's outstanding in its own ways. Parasyte was far more emotional for me than Berserk ever was. It's really just personal taste after a certain point, though like I mentioned, I wish I could into art so I could better know what that point is.

You make a good point.

Different genres and tastes dictate preference. Personally, I find things such as Gintama or One-Punch Man to be more of my taste, but Berserk will always fulfill a part of my fantasy niche. I like it for that and the art, but my preference for comedy and sci-fi is just a few notches higher than grimdark fantasy.

You have a few options.
You can manually go on scanlators' websites and check for releases (you can find the scanlators' names by typing "[series name] mangaupdates" on Google). Or you could go on a manga aggregator. The only non-shit aggregator to my knowledge is Batoto; most others put shitty watermarks on the manga or somehow manage to fuck up the quality.

If you read a lot of series and can't be bothered to manually keep track of all of them, make a MangaUpdates account. You can hit the "add to reading list" button on MU, and it'll automatically tell you when a scanlator has released a new chapter for that particular manga. It also makes it easy to keep track of which manga you finished, as well as separate the manga you've read into different categories (for example, you could have a "favorites" category or "one-shots" category). The only downside is that once you've found out about an update, you'll have to type the scanlation's group's name on Google or look on batoto for the actual chapter though, since MU had to remove links due to piracy concerns.

As far as downloading manga, there's the scanlators' websites and/or their IRC (but that's a whole 'nother tutorial) and there's mangatraders which lets you download multiple series on the same website. Sometimes you have to look for specific mediafire archives to find good quality scans of certain manga. For example, the Onizuka scans on Batoto and mangatraders are utter shit but you can find a mediafire of the good scans somewhere in the /a/ archives.
>>
>>100947698
Oh yeah, and there's also deadfrog and bakabt for manga torrents. I've never really used either though; mangaupdates + batoto is usually good enough for me.
>>
>>100947356
We can't get a new chapter, and you want him fighting a dragon?
You can more than easily understand how difficult that is, apply thyself a German suplex anon.

>>100938549
By far the most epic scene of that entire arc is the next morning when Casca and friends are running through the forest gazing at the whole floor covered in corpses, and following the path set by the bodies until they reach a big tree in an open spot completely surrounded by corpses, with Gutts' body resting against its trunk. Looking dead.
>>
>>100947698
>>100947741
And lastly, get greasemonkey and the webcomic reader script if you're going to be reading manga online. If you're going to read it on your computer, Honeyview or Comicrack are the way to go on Windows, mComix or YacReader for Linux. I've never used OS X so you're on your own there.

Happy manga reading.

>>
>>100948220
>Webcomic reader
and tested

Both normal and minimalistic grab the full size image.
Normal (falsely) retains the "this was resized" message.
Normal without adblock moves adds to the bottom of the page, though because you can change image scale settings to ignore the wasted screen real estate it can be ignored.

Can't scroll click, but if the preloader is good enough then that isn't a problem (I left it there sitting for quite a while and it only loaded three pages, so it could go either way).

Will use for now.
>>
>>100947131

Whats wrong with the Hawk scans?
>>
>>100948220
>>broken
>Broken how?
Basically html has some default functionality built into buttons and links and such. It binds scroll click to open in new tab.
Mangafox, instead of making an image also a link to the next page, each image is a button that runs a script. This script scales the image to window size on the first click, full size on the second.
As the script is not redirecting you to another page (the change only happens on your computer, not the server) there is no (next page) link associated with the image, and therefore, the scroll click.
Just a few lines of code would restore scroll click functionality, however nobody uses it anyway, so it gets blatantly ignored.
