Sad news for manga fans! We learned of the death of the manga artist Kentaro Miura, best known for the dark fantasy manga Berserk, this Thursday May 20th.
Guts is an orphan
As the Berserker fans eagerly awaited the sequel, the news fell like a cleaver tonight. Kentaro Miura, its famous author, died of aortic dissection on May 6, 2021 at the age of 54. The writer leaves an unfinished job, and the fans applauded and were grateful.
Of course, Kentaro Miura is best known for Berserk, his dark fantasy work. Visceral, violent, berserk is a true masterpiece that leaves no one unharmed: neither its characters nor its readers. The Mangaka did not abandon any subject, not even the most difficult (religion, sexual violence) and adopted an extremely graphic style.
Kentaro Miura’s line struck with great precision and the author drew some of the most beautiful manga boards. Kentaro Miura has set the pace of his editor’s work to show the mass grave of a battlefield as the atmosphere of a banquet hall. Berserk was founded in 1989 and has forty volumes. Forty volumes of insane intensity rarely matched in a manga.
Hitek wanted to pay homage to this great artist. Condolences to his family!
