Kentaro Miura's Berserk manga is getting a special touch with this Berserk Deluxe edition set to be released this coming March 2019. The Deluxe edition collects the first three Volumes of the said Manga.

If you're not familiar with this dark fantasy manga Berserk, I'll just give you three words about it - violence, dark, and gore. If you're not into this genre, you may skip this read, but I still recommend this book as it has a very good dark story.

You can pre-order Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 Deluxe Edition below:

* Berserk Deluxe Vol. 1

* Berserk Deluxe Vol. 2

As we've read its synopsis, the story is about Grunbeld, one of the apostles, a follower of Griffith. Perhaps this Light Novel will talk about his past.
