Berserk 351: Forest of Corpses and Needling Pines



Previously on Berserk, Schierke, Farnese, dog Gutts, and tiny broken essence of Casca collected almost every fragment they need to repair the Casca doll in her psyche. Together, they moved towards the ominous eclipse in the distance.



As the part nears the eclipse, they end of a forest that smells of rotting corpses and has sharp edges everywhere, only getting more dangerous the deeper they go. However, the objects in the forest aren't the only dangers.



As they head in, the group is attacked by suspiciously phallic acid-spitting bug monsters until the guise of "it looks kind of like a penis" is thrown away completely as the wave of monsters goes on. Schierke exhausts the fetishes she brought, but Farnese saves the day by throwing down some sort of Mozgus summoner she brought from her own dream.



They press on right up until they see the final fragment...

It is so close, shrouded behind thorns...

Do you know what we see next?

HIATUS UNTIL WINTER.

Fuck all of our lives.

You can read this disappoint and phallic chapter here.

Berserk 349 - Passage of Dreams



Previously on Berserk, Farnese and Schierke finally made it into the gloomy twisted wasteland that is Casca's mind. There she met the broken doll that is Casca in her mind and a dog that dragged around her coffin, a symbol for Gutts. Now, they move onto the distance.



Unfortunately the chapter starts off with all those characters you don't care about partying with the elves, mages, and other creatures. Thankfully, the scene soon switches to Gutts outside having a bonfire of dreams moment. 




He is soon his is joined by Serpico and the Captain, who go over what they have learned and are grateful for on this journey.



Thankfully, the scene soon switches back to the good bits in Casca's mind and isn't just another enraging filler chapter. There the group happens upon a more literal bonfire of dreams moment where they see Gutts back when he was in the Band of the Hawk. There, the girls can feel Casca's memories for him at that time. 



From this bonfire drops a shard that is able to repair the broken doll in the coffin. They quickly deduce that they must travel Casca's mind and collect the shards, an intriguing set up for a journey.

However, their conclusion is interrupted by the bats from the previous chapter that are swooping towards them. Luckily, Schierke brought some magical defenders to help her. With this, the chapter ends.
 
It continues again "late May!"

Berserk 348 - Gloomy Wastes

Previously one Berserk, Miura teased us endlessly by finally allowing Farnese and Schierke to enter Casca's mind via the Flowerstorm King. ...Then promptly went on hiatus for several very long months. Now arrives our long awaited moment.



The chaper open on the gloomy wastes of Casca's mind. Bleak and depressing with cloaks hanging on sticks and a tall peak in the distance, all of it lit by a black sun and every dressed in metaphors of the mind.



Closer to them Schierke and Farnese spot something pulling a wagon. Upon closer inspection, it turns out to be a dog, spears jutting out of its back, and scars all over its body, dragging a coffin with the crest of the Band of the Hawk.

Suddenly, the cloaks come alive into bat-like creatures and attack the dog. Schierke and Farnese jump in and drive off the attackers, healing the hound.



It is when they notice that the dog is missing one of its front paws, they finally realize that it is Gutts. For long-time Berserk fans, you will recall that Casca used to refer to him as a mad dog.



They finally crack open the coffin and find a broken doll that resembles Casca.



Inside, they find a smaller version of Casca, all that is left of her psyche now. After playing with her, Farnese calls her cute. however, after having it almost blown away by the wind, the put her back in the coffin.The pair spot a green light in the distance and, with dog Gutts and his coffin, they move towards it.



This is where the chapter ends, but good news! No Hiatus! The next chapter comes out in April.
