There are several other works apart from those already mentioned that may be of interest to those who like this franchise. One is ''Manga/OokamiNoKuchiWolfsmund'', penned by one of Miura's former assistants Mitsuhisa Kuji, a dark medieval story emphasizing history rather than fantasy. Another is ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'', a story about half-demon female warriors who hunt shape-shifting monsters using [[{{BFS}} giant swords]]. The video games ''VideoGame/DemonsSouls'' and ''VideoGame/DarkSouls'' also tend to enjoy overlap with ''Berserk'' in popularity, as they share a similarly grim and fatalistic fantasy atmosphere. For a short, action-packed demon-slaying story by Miura's friend Shizuya Wazarai with an art style similar to ''Berserk's'' early volumes, try ''Manga/BlasterKnuckle''. See also ''LightNovel/ReZero'', which in later arcs is being seen as the ''Berserk'' of LightNovels in terms of tone, themes and suffering. Alternatively, the Light Novel series ''LightNovel/TheRisingOfTheShieldHero'' has gained comparisons, as it bears similar themes and is fairly bleak, centering around a vengeful anti-hero protagonist in a dark fantasy world. And for Western works with similar themes and imagery, see ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'' and ''Film/EventHorizon''.

''Berserk'' (''Beruseruku'') is an ongoing {{seinen}} manga series by Creator/KentaroMiura set in a grim MedievalEuropeanFantasy world. Beginning the action InMediasRes with the first three volumes establishing Guts, the setting, and the antagonists, the story then goes into a ''twelve-volumes-long'' flashback called the Golden Age arc which explains HowWeGotHere and reveals Guts' [[DarkAndTroubledPast painful backstory]]. Guts survives an abuse-filled childhood by becoming a prodigious fighter and lives as a lone sell-sword, until he meets the charismatic mercenary leader Griffith and his undefeated [[TrueCompanions Band of the Hawk]]. Griffith is a man with a dream of winning his own kingdom despite his common origins, and possesses an egg-shaped artifact called the [[ArtifactOfDoom crimson behelit]], which he was told will grant its owner the world in exchange for his flesh and blood. Inducted into the Band by [[DefeatMeansFriendship losing to Griffith in a duel]], Guts finds himself for the first time surrounded by companions united by Griffith's dream and loyalty to each other, and grows to view Griffith with both friendship and admiration. By turning the tide of a hundred year war in favor of the Kingdom of Midland they become the most celebrated force in the land, but a falling out between Guts and Griffith plunges the latter into despair, setting off a chain of events that ultimately brings their friendship and the Band of the Hawk to a disastrous end.

* ''Anime/Berserk1997'', the first work to adapt the manga, is a twenty-five episode anime with animation by [[OLMIncorporated Oriental Light and Magic]] that aired from October 7, 1997 to March 31, 1998. It covers the Golden Age Arc after starting off with a short prologue in the Black Swordsman Arc; the main differences are that Puck and the Skull Knight get AdaptedOut, and the ending after the Eclipse leaves more questions unanswered than in the manga. Despite modest production values it's quite well done and regarded as a classic.

Guts is a warrior haunted by his past, namely the tragedy that ended in the loss of his hand, his eye, and everyone he cared about. He is WalkingTheEarth seeking only one thing: {{revenge}} against [[{{WhiteHairBlackHeart}} Griffith]], [[WeUsedToBeFriends once his best friend]], who treacherously sacrificed him and all their comrades to the evil deities known as the [[BigBadDuumvirate God Hand]] in order to be reborn as their fifth member. The world is crawling with Apostles, monstrous servants of the God Hand who gave up their humanity in exchange for power. By hunting these creatures, Guts hopes to pick up the trail of Griffith and make him pay.
