Berserk, giupan_cosplay's Gatsu cosplay expresses sadness for Miura's death


The cosplay of Gatsu, the protagonist of the Berserk series, made by giupan_cosplay, expresses all the sadness for the untimely death of the master Kentaro Miura, which took place at only 54 years old.

Today is an unhappy day for the world of manga and anime fans and giupan_cosplay wanted to represent the emotional state of many by publishing a photo in which he plays a melancholy and distant Gatsu, holding his huge sword with his wounded hand.

The costume itself is really successful, also enhanced by the excellent photographic composition and the right lighting, which dramatizes the whole scene. Let's see it:

Berserk is the most famous work of the master Kentaro Miura, whose publication in manga form began in the now distant 1989. We arrived in Italy in 1996, the year before the launch of the anime series. There is also a video game of Berserk, BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk, released in 2016/2017 for PS3, PS4, PS Vita and PC.

Dark Horse Comics, who published Miura's work in the US, also released a statement.

'Miura-sensei was a master artist and storyteller and we had the great privilege of publishing several of his finest works, including his masterpiece, Berserk.

'He will be greatly missed.'

Berserk, Miura's most famous work, began serialization back in 1989. A dark fantasy manga set in a brutal medieval-inspired universe, Berserk's impact can be seen in multiple works of fiction. Video games like Dark Souls, Bloodborne and Final Fantasy alongside manga and anime such as Demon Slayer, Castlevania and Vagabond all bear the mark of Miura's influence.

Kentaro Miura began drawing at the age of 10, creating manga for his classmates, but quickly graduated to the real thing, working as an assistant to George Morikawa, the creator of boxing manga Hajime No Ippo, aged 18. 

Berserk told the story of 'Guts'. A mercenary swordsman mixed up in a savage world of endless battles and magic,  he's on a quest for revenge against his former master Griffith, who ascended to become a demon god. It was renowned for its unflinching, often brutal visual storytelling, mixed with some of the most dazzling and detailed art ever seen in manga. 

Fans paid tribute to Miura online.

As a result of Berserk's popularity, an anime was produced in 1997. A film series, covering early story arcs from the manga, was produced in 2012, with an additional series released in 2016. Multiple video games based on Berserk were also published.  

Berserk's serialization was ongoing and, as a result, Miura's manga will most likely remain unfinished.
