Berserk Manga Reading Order: Here Is How to Read It!

If you know anything about the world of manga, Berserk is quite probably a title that has come up at one point or another. Now, Berserk is definitely a classic, but with all the hiatuses and Miura’s untimely death, the future of the series had been in jeopardy for years. Still, in 2022, it was confirmed that Berserk would continue under the supervision of Koji Mori, Miura’s friend, and colleague, and would reach the ending that Miura intended. While we’re waiting for the manga to further develop the story, we have decided to tell you how to read the chapters that have already come out by giving you a detailed reading order for the Berserk manga.

How many Berserk chapters and volumes are there?

The structure of the Berserk manga is not overly complex, but it is a big work. As of the time of writing, there are – in total – 371 published chapters, 364 of which have so far been collected in a total of 41 volumes. But, seeing how Mori is going to continue the manga after Miura’s death, we know that the number of chapters and volumes is going to increase, so we don’t actually know how many we’ll have when it all ends.

In what order should you read Berserk?

Although there are suggestions that you should start with Volume 3 up to Volume 14, then go back to Volumes 1 and 2 before continuing after Volume 14, we think that this is not a great decision and that you should definitely respect Miura’s original publication order, meaning that you should start with Chapter 1, Volume 1 of the Berserk manga and continue from that point onwards.
