After beginning its latest hiatus back in April, Young Animal magazine’s official website has announced that Kentarou Miura is going back to work on Berserk.

Well, that was shorter than expected, huh?!

The hiatus only lasted eight months, which is short by Miura standards, as Young Animal will release its new chapter in the magazine’s 17th issue on August 23.

Berserk has become quite infamous for long hiatuses which happen frequently. The mangaka is known to take hiatuses which often last for years before coming back for a few chapters… then another hiatus.

Berserk was first published in 1989 and has currently 40 volumes.
