Kentaro Miura, who also produced the accompanying drawings, is the author of the dark fantasy manga series known as Berserk. The plot revolves on the characters of Guts, a lone mercenary, and Griffith, the leader of a band of mercenaries known as the Band of the Hawk. It takes place in a dark fantasy world. The scene is a divine cosmos set in medieval Europe. The novel covers both the most noble and the most abhorrent facets of human nature; as a consequence, it is replete with themes of both community and loneliness, as well as the question of whether mankind as a whole is basically good or horrible. Both the anime and the manga have drawn notice for their use of brutal violence and explicit sexual content.

He accidentally activates the behelit on his man and his wants show that there is just too much for Griffith to think about in terms of understanding his body since the weight is too much for him to carry. This directs the Hawks to a different plane where they come across four archdemons known as the God Hand working for the Eclipse. The apostles, who, like Zodd, have abandoned humanity and their nearest and dearest for the might of the God Hand, beckon Griffith to surrender his men to them. Griffith is able to accomplish his goal of leading the God Hand by accomplishing this, making him the group’s last member. Guts watches as his fellow troops are cruelly butchered, despite the fact that the unnamed Skull Knight saves him and his beloved Casca from certain death. Guts continues to see the deaths of his fellow troops, however. Intestines loses an eye and an arm as a result of being raped by the reborn Griffith, now known as Femto, while Casca becomes mad as a result of the ordeal.
The first Berserk manga was released to the public by Miura in 1988.
After running with Farnese of the Holy Iron Chain Knights of the Holy See Church, Guts has a torture nightmare that ends with Griffith having his physical type returned. With the aid of his new friends, Guts transports Casca to the elven country of Elfhelm for safety, while Griffith establishes a second Band of the Hawk and enlists Zodd and other Apostles to battle the advancing Kushan army. Griffith wants to stop the Kushan invasion. The destruction of the Kushan emperor and the fusion of the supernatural and natural realms mark the culmination of the war between the monarch and Griffith, a rebellious missionary. With the support of the Pope and Princess Charlotte, Griffith takes control of Midland since he is no longer endangered by good or evil. In order to defend the residents of Midland from the more frequent raids by wonderful creatures, he also founds the city of Falconia.
