I accidentally read the first chapter of Berserk. Good Lord, it's horrid! there's no cursing, but it's violent, (example, guys getting arrows shot into their eyes and one guy gets slashed in two and blood spurts out all over the room like a new paint job.) and the opening illustration is disgusting beyond description. There's also a character who does'nt appear to own any proper clothes. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. It's on my list of banned manga. Don't. Ever.Read.It.
