Miura pls finish berserk

First chapter and already a masterpiece.

Miura is just providing the story for this one so hopefully it means that he won't be too far removed from Berserk.

Look on the bright side, all: Instead of delaying Berserk over video games, Miura is spending time on writing for another manga.

I mean.. thats less bad right?

Maybe it'll keep his creative juices flowing and less likely any more year long hiatuses will occur. Maybe. Probably....

Ok, for those who think this is not going to affect Berserk because "Miura only provides the story and his assistants draw the manga," you should look up Studio GAGA interviews. The assistants have been doing primary drawing since the time of Gigantomachia. Miura only drew the Gigantomachia omake (yes, the loli pee story). Just like how Gigantomachia caused a Berserk hiatus, this one will slow down Berserk publication as well.

Personally I like this new work and I haven't been invested in Berserk for years anyway.

ah yes
i remember miura's announcing his plans to write a sequel to an azur lane doujin years ago

This seems to be less of a 'masterpiece' and more of a 'hey look at this hermaphrodite child that I will not stop telling you how beautiful they are'.

It's the kind of excess that can only happen when the author has been enshrined by an industry that already has a really low standard for sexualizing children.

Why is Azur Lane listed as a prequel? Guessing a weird mistype or something.

I hope this manga is better than Berserk.

@Ghede Judging by how things go when stories start this peacefully, I think their family is going to be invaded at some point, his parents will die and he'll set on a journey alone. He'll make new friends, they'll find him beautiful but the focus will probably be his constructs(as they are called by his "father" this chapter) because of his wisdom.
I think it's more of a story on developing humanity and following this wise child but we can't conclude anything from this first chapter.
But yeah, I feel like the gods or some mythical beings will come after Usum and he'll be forced to leave as it usually happens on these kinds of starts.

This manga is based on the Akkadian myths of Usumgallu and the Atra-Hasis. Usumgallu is the royal dragon of Akkad while Atra-Hasis is the flood myth included in the Epic of Gilgamesh. The old Noah-like grandpa is Uthnapishtim/Atra-Hasis, the man made immortal after becoming the savior of life in the Great Flood. Now here is where things get interesting: Depending on which version of the myth is consulted, Uthnapishtim is either the perserver of the seed of man (the Noah route, all humans are descended from him and his kids, etc) or the last of the old humanity purged by the gods. In the latter version of the myth, the gods instead fashioned a new humanity to take the place of the old one extinguished by the Flood.

I think this manga is going to follow route 2 and make Usumgallu both Adam and Eve of the new humanity because we clearly see him being created by the old gods.

MIURA IS A LAZY HACK!

Already enjoying this more than Berserk. Cool to see Miura trying his hand at something different, and his [assistants'] artwork really brings out the magnificence of this mythical story.

i really don't want him to find a partner and end up as platonic story
since people will treat him like a girl but he is also a boy i doubt anyone would accept him as both
Avatar
@EdenMarino but the art was done by his assistant and not miura.

This is bloody great so far, absolutely loving the story and the art itself is amazing. I hope the rest of this story continues on going at full strength ahead!

qdrhdfgk .

about the new manga :

- the good news are : it seems that Miura only writes the story and produces duranki . all the drawings are done by his assistants in studio gaga . so he wont spend much time with duranki .

- but the bad news are : Miura wont spend much time with duranki , but that doesnt mean he will spend more time to write and draw Berserk , because he is too busy playing video games , lol .

i guess the reasons why Miura starts duranki , ANOTHER new serie after 1 volume of Gigantomakhia :

- he is bored and sick with berserk .

- he is running out of new ideas for berserk , so he drags the story as long as he can .

- but he doesnt want to end berserk because it is still his cash cow to buy new video games . so he starts new serie after new serie , and if they sell quickly like berserk volumes , then he will drop berserk completly and stick to the new serie .
