Is Berserk chaper 364 the final chapter?
As of now, it is very unclear whether there would be any more chapters of Berserk after chapter 364. No revelation regarding the future of the manga has been made yet by Young Animal Comics. However, it’s kinda interesting that they are advertising it as “the newest chapter” and not the “final” or “last” chapter. From a marketing perspective, that’s basically a confirmation that it’s not the last of Berserk in the manga.
The deafening lack of scarcity pain points in their official announcement, not even an, “almost the end,” or, “last Miura episode” has raised suspicion. It leads one to wonder about possibly a minimum of a few more episodes with big publicity on the countdown. Maybe the magazine company has a lot of material in production, but are waiting for things to be completed, or possibly refining ideas.
So that’s all we have for now. We will come back for more once Berserk 364 is released. Till then, stay in touch with us.
