I feel like I just made a wish to a Genie or something.
Back in 2019 I kinda seriously wished Berserk would end in Elfhelm because the most recent arc is the nices, warmest, cuddliest lighthearted chapters of Berserk that I’ve ever read and considering the brutal struggle our Party’s been through, I sorta wished they’d just retire and enjoy life.
ESPECIALLY now that Guts has completed one his primary objective: bringing Casca back to sanity.
2021 and the author bit the dust. And now recently we got a new chapter–most likely the last chapter that he was working on before his passing. And it was WHOLESOME. Felt like closure. This may as well be, the last chapter of Berserk (unless his assistants eventually step up and continue the work).
So the last chapter the original author worked on was a wholesome, warm and fuzzy chapter taking place in Elfhelm. May even be the finale of the entire series. I got my wish, sort of.
This feels like if I made a wish saying “I wish I don’t have to clean the house today” and my house burned down. “Aint no cleaning house if there’s no house” kind of wish-granting.
