Berserk by. Kentaro Miura

Guts, the protagonist of Kentaro Miura's dark fantasy manga "Berserk", is a figure defined by relentless perseverance, trauma, and an insatiable will to survive. Born from the corpse of his hanged mother, Guts's life has been a relentless onslaught of battles, betrayals, and tragedies. He is known for wielding a massive sword called the Dragonslayer, which he uses with unparalleled skill and brutality. As a member of the Band of the Hawk, Guts formed deep bonds, particularly with its leader, Griffith, which would be tested by fate and ambition. After a tragic event known as the Eclipse, where his comrades were sacrificed and he lost an arm and an eye, Guts becomes the "Black Swordsman", donning black armor and dedicating his life to hunting Apostles and seeking revenge against Griffith, now the God Hand member Femto. Throughout his journey, Guts faces both external demons and his own inner darkness, symbolized by the Beast of Darkness. But amidst the suffering, Guts also finds moments of humanity and connections, particularly with his new group of comrades and his lover, Casca. His journey is a testament to the human spirit's resilience, even in the face of overwhelming despair.
