Yeah, Berserk's author is thankfully alive and kicking, though finding out such was delayed because he has some sort of vendetta against social networking. Not that I blame him, every man has his morals. Anyway, no one stateside is quite sure where he is hanging out, all we have to go on is the picture below encouraging Japan to help each other.
Just thought you all would like to know. But I'm pretty sure there will be an even longer delay on Berserk chapters giving us a longer time to talk about nothing.
