I'm up for a serious discussion on this, so please so saging and 1/10...

I've read a couple of volumes, and didn't enjoyed it somewhat, but it didn't live up to the hype it gets on NF (I was an NF'er when I read it).

A couple of things that makes this a good, but not a classic:

>1: Art is stuck between artistic and generic.

Backgrounds are great, but character designs are generic (just read any American action comic) and it's quite pathetic to think that this guy spends a month drawing a chapter, when Inoue spends a week drawing ten times greater backgrounds and faces.

>2:The story drags on forever, and is currently stalling.

Tolkien spent 12 years writing The Hobbit and the LOTR-trilogy. Berserk is neither as epic, nor as good as it, and it has been running for 18 (EIGHTEEN) years. Without no sight of an end in near future.

>3:The fanbase:
You guys are as obnoxious as those One Piece and Narutotards. It's impossible to give any reasonable critic of the manga without being flamed, accused of trolling or isolated.

You think of your beloved Berserk as a classic, as a great monument in the history of manga, while most people who have read more than shounen and mainstream seinen, know that it is nothing but a good manga, not great, not a classic, just good.

Pic related, because it's a great manga with an end.

Apparently due to the heavy internet censorship inside the great firewall of china, most chinese use proxies nowadays to access the internets, so it'd be hard to ban him.

What do you mean "As epic."

It's either an epic, or it's not. Berserk is an epic under a loose definition of the word. Lord of the Rings isn't, as far as I know. I haven't read the books.

>because I who read Osamu Tezuka at the age of 12 is a n00b right?

How does I fail subject/verb agreement?

Epic is not a superlative. Get a english dictionary.

>>10227636
NF loves Berserk. Don't believe me? Lurk more...

>>10227651
Do you know what epic means? LOTR is the definition of epic, and it shows on the immense influence it has had over the decades on everything from sci-fi to fantasy.

IT's also the best-selling fictional work of all time.

Berserk on the other hand, has had no influence on the manga genre, unlike the greats like Osamu Tezuka (the father of shounen, robot manga, and seinen) or people like Katsuhiro Otomo and Inoue.

What I meant was it failed as en epos and wasn't epic in the sense of:

Definitions of epic on the Web:

* very imposing or impressive; surpassing the ordinary (especially in size or scale); "an epic voyage"; "of heroic proportions"; "heroic sculpture"
* epic poem: a long narrative poem telling of a hero's deeds
* constituting or having to do with or suggestive of a literary epic; "epic tradition"
