The final “Berserk” volume that manga creator Kentaro Miura wrote before his death will be released in the U.S. this November.

Miura’s 33 years of commitment to “Berserk,” one of Japan’s longest-running manga, will come to an end with Volume 41.

The dark fantasy manga, which will be published by Dark Horse in the U.S., follows the lone mercenary Guts’ journey for revenge against monsters and his once trusted ally, Griffith.

“It is with great pride that Dark Horse will release Miura-sensei’s last installment of his masterpiece, Berserk,” President and founder of Dark Horse Comics Mike Richardson said.

“His creativity and incredible storytelling are unmatched,” he added. “And to be able to release his final work to his fans is an honor that cannot be overstated.”

Miura died due to an acute aortic dissection on May 6, 2021, at the age of 54. His death also left the story of “Berserk” unfinished.

“Berserk,” one of the best-selling manga of all time, has been developed into TV shows, a film trilogy and two video games. Its influence is also present in video games such as “Final Fantasy,” “Bloodborne,” “Dark Souls” and “Elden Ring.” 

“Berserk Volume 41” will be released in comic book stores on Nov. 9 and in bookstores on Nov. 22.
