Whuh oh, hold up a second.
This isn’t just a lewdness warning,
this is a gore warning.
This series features heavy themes (such as sexual abuse),
nudity, generally offensive content, and extreme violence.
It is very and quite simply not safe for work.
If you are pure of heart, or don’t have the stomach for gore,
you may want to turn back.
You’d think that sums it up, but I’d like to tell YOU why Berserk is actually more. Here’s some music.
This article has an addendum going into specifics, themes, and major moments! Thus, the addendum is full of spoilers, and should only really be read if you’ve already read this manga.
This article is for fans of the ping pong/fairly yuri manga Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume (灼熱の卓球娘, Scorching Ping Pong Girls) by Asano Yagura (朝野やぐら) who have caught up to the latest chapter of the series. Of course, it is full of spoilers; don’t read this before reading the manga, dude! Read [this] instead, if you are curious about the series and have yet to pick it up.
Hold, and go no further! Thou willst hear me!
The following article pertains to a doujin manga that takes its setting from part of the Touhou Project video game series. If you’re unfamiliar with it, you should read my Touhou Project Primer first. It’s best to play the games before taking in anything else.
The following content is terribly lewd. Those pure of heart, take heed.
First, [fitting music].
Vector Spectacle is so fucking awesome!
Hold on a moment, friend.
If you get really mad about racism, gross things, comic gore, and general offense,
this series really might not be your cup of tea.
The weak of heart won’t do well here.
“But these tears were different.
It’s as if a screaming pain inside me that had been locked up a long time ago had finally busted out by using my tear ducts as its escape route.
And when it finally got out, it shouted…
‘You don’t deserve this.'”
I have found one of those manga that I just like.
Wait a second!!!
Gakkou Gurashi! is best read knowing as little as possible going in. I don’t mean “the twist of chapter 1 must not be spoiled!” or anything, just that, seriously, the less you know the better. It’s a series that really gets you thinking a lot, and you don’t need my thoughts getting in the way of yours. In light of that, right here is gonna be a mini-review for anyone skeptical as to why I’m recommending the series, while the rest of this article is for those who remain unconvinced, or for people who are already reading the series. Gakkou Gurashi! is a zombie apocalypse/slice of life psychological and survivalist drama manga that I seriously consider to be a masterpiece…for a good while. After that while, it isn’t as good (to put it lightly). I really think everyone should read “part 1” of this series, though, because it’s beautiful and so good in so many ways. After you do? Read it again, closely, and then if you still want more, cautiously step beyond. If all you need is my word to try a new manga, go try it out now. Whatever you do, though, don’t watch the anime. Don’t even look it up; it’ll actually ruin a few things for you.
