Are there any manga out there like Berserk? I've started reading Bastard!! and I'm thinking about giving Black Lagoon a go. And no, I consider shows like Deadman Wonderland and Elfen Lied to be nothing like Berserk, just because they are violent (not as violent as Berserk though, kind of disapointed because Deadman Wonderland wasn't violent enough, and Elfen Lied is far from the most violent, contrary to the popular belief). Yet mere violence isn't what makes Berserk so incaptovating; Genocyber has worse violence than Berserk, yet though being better than Deadman Wonderland and Elfen Lied it doesn't stand up to Berserk in other aspects. I guess the dark fantasy world I find encaptivating, as well as the plot. If I were to say what I thought Berserk's Western equivilent is, I'd say Preacher by Garth Ennis.
