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.
