    Going by present financial situation, I bet it will continue to a rather rushed ending. They won't abandon the franchaise.

    I don't think I'll keep reading Berserk with new chapters after this. Because you just can't separate artist from his own artwork, this is gonna be different and alien from what was the original.

    On the other hand, he's been working with these assistants for *years*. The art on Duranki was *mostly* done by assistants and it looks pretty solid and like his own work.

    Obviously the story won't be the *same*, but depending on how many notes he left, how much they knew? THey might be able to do something respectable.

    Wheel of Time was finished after the author's death and that came out well.

    I agree with Robby here. While stories will not be the same after an authors death if it's in the hands of people who respect the IP and have a lot of knowledge about the way how the author thought and worked then it can turn out well. One of my favorite books of all time is the Silmarillion and this one was done by Tolkkiens son after he collected all the notes and scripts that his father has made over the years.

    But if the publisher just wants to milk it without actually doing it the story and Miura justice then I agree that this would be terrible.

    I think it's worth giving them a shot.

    At worst we can say "that wasn't Miura" and dismiss the later chapters as non-canon.

    Christopher Tolkien himself was a good scholar and helped his father from early stages of LOTR universe. Also as his son, it brought about some credibility. Sadly Miura has no designated successor other than his assistants. So, they have a uphill tasks to gain the recognition while continuing Berserk. But I want publisher and editors to give them a chance if they want to do so.

    It seems that chapter 364 will be the last one.

    Pretty expected. Miura might not have left much of any notes and even if he did the assistants might not feel comfortable both continuing Miura's work after his death but also risking upsetting the audience if they do something wrong. I think ending it is the best option.

    I am fine with this. I made peace with the possibility that it might never get a proper ending years ago.

    It doesn't say anything about the last chapter of the series. It is perhaps the last chapter Miura worked on.
    But yeah! We will get a definitive answer with this chapter.

    Good to see the series getting a closure. And if the assistants are as good as some would claim them to be, then I hope I see their own original work someday. New stories inspired by the experiences gained from working with Miura, that would be more like it.

    Kind of interesting that this last chapter just happens to line up with enough needed for a new volume. I guess it's better than the mangaka dying without enough chapters for a last volume (though they would probably be able to fill the page count with extras).

    The final volume of YuYu Hakusho is loaded with sketches to fill it out. And Togashi is still alive, he just gave up on the thing.

    So they would have figured out something.

    Seems like there may not be any more chapters as it talks about Miura's wishes,unless Miura wanted it to continue like his favourite story 'Guin Saga'.
