Berserk meant a lot to me, and a lot to many people worldwide. His work affected a lot of people and he will surely be missed, his incredible storytelling is still with us. It's difficult to write that he's died. I don't want to believe it. I woke up, checked Twitter, and everyone was talking about Berserk all of a sudden. Then I see an announcement. Thank you for everything, Miura
