Berserk is back, again. For real, it’s happening and we’re entering a new arc. In what’s being called the “Eastern Exile Arc” we see the latest episode, or chapter, detailing what happens next for Guts in his vulnerable state with the release of Berserk Chapter 375.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen things look so grim for the series, but it’s given a glimmer of hope with how some of the supporting cast appear in this latest chapter. Gather everything you need to know coming up to the Eastern Exile Arc!
Berserk Chapter 375 Release Date
Berserk is confirmed to release Chapter 375 on Friday, November 10, 2023. Scans have already surfaced, with fans likely able to peek at the translated story by November 9. Additional confirmation has come according to leaks and trusted sources including Manga Mogura on X. Eagle-eyed fans watching their Twitter feed may have also seen promising news that the chapter is complete, and we won’t have to wait much longer. The latest preview for Young Animal’s November 10 issue even confirms Berserk Chapter 375 is imminent.
For those curious about how Berserk releases before it’s localized by Dark Horse Manga in North America, it was originally released in Japan under Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine. This publication drops on the 2nd and 4th Friday of every month.
RECAP: Berserk Chapter 374 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 375
Berserk Chapter 374 is released with a naval assault by the Kushans on all fronts around the Seahorse where Guts and his companions are aboard. They quickly board the vessel, with Serpico and Isidro deftly escaping to go toward the stateroom. Schierke’s ritual is meant to go undisturbed, and Serpico is concerned for Farnese’s safety. But the Kushans aim for one particular room.
They reach the room where Guts is resting in his vulnerable state. If he were in better condition, you could be assured he’d dismember the whole raiding party. But it’s good news that he didn’t, as among the Kushans, you see a familiar pair of young eyes gazing at the black swordsman in chains. It’s Rickert!
Speculation is open wide at the moment as to where this leads. Perhaps Guts unites with the Kushans against their common enemy, Griffith. The Kushans have conquered Midland, hinting that they’re expanding with a naval presence, but Rickert’s presence suggests likely a more significant meaning for Guts. We might see Guts’ spirits renewed, or at least empowered to some extent with this reunion. For now, though, we just have to wait until the release of Berserk Chapter 375 and the Eastern Exile Arc!
