«This photo is from a sketch by Takamura that Kentarou Miura made for me. It is a drawing that is very close to my heart. Let me tell you a story In my first post for a weekly magazine, I didn't have an assistant, but he did. He was 18 and I was 19. He was a member of my university's art club and he came after we gave a drawing consultation. I didn't know how good it was so I showed him some of my illustrations and asked him to copy them to evaluate. I was impressed with the results at his age that talent was incredible. After he drew a few other things for me, I was instantly attached to him. We were still young so we took some time to talk about manga.

When he showed me his sketchbook, I realized how good it was. There were scenes of a fairy, some kind of trademark, a warrior and a huge sword. They would later be renamed Puck and Guts. His art, done with a very thick pencil, was unimaginable. When I asked him about these illustrations, he replied, “There are only a few things on my mind. It's something I recently got into. “How long has it been since then? Berserk already existed in his head. Months passed and my Hajime no Ippo series finally started running, concurrently with Berserk. I heard he was having some problems, but I was sure something ... a fantastic manga had started.

It was the show Kentarou-san had worked on all his life and made on his own terms. I was sure that the audience would be as impressed with his art as I was. For his exquisite artistic talent and passion, I no longer have any respect for every chapter he has made. That's the end of my story, we were together for a very short time, but I heard that he always thought well of me. I am very proud to have met him. Kentarou-san, I'm sorry I shared these anecdotes on my own. One day we'll meet again and you'll tell me the end».

Ichiei Ishibumi, Author of the franchise of High School DxD, wrote: "I pray for the rest of his soul ... berserk ... How painful is that?».

The community of players from Final Fantasy XIV He also remembered the famous writer who formed a long line in his honor. «Ceremony in memory of the Dark Knight and the author of Berserk, Kentarou Miura. I love this community».

«In 2019, Kentarou Miura told French publisher Glénat that he was afraid that he would not be able to finish his berserking work before he died. ""A long time ago when I started writing this piece I was less concerned about the ending and just thought that I was writing a story that would end sooner or laterDeclared the author. ""But now I realize that life is not forever and I take care of my health to make sure I finish the story I started.""».
