I have finished watching Berserk (2017) and would like to continue reading the manga.

On what chapter of Berserk's manga did the anime end?


Anime ends on Chapter 264. You can start reading from chapter 265.

Manga chapter 264, page 21

Anime episode 12, the scene at 23:22

Aaaand it's a bad idea. I mean, a really BAD idea. You can't start reading from where the anime ended, you will be lost. Important plot points (I'm not talking filler here, I'm talking real important plot points) were skipped by ANY Berserk anime adaptation. I started reading from the end of the 1997 anime, you think I would be safe: I wasn't, cause I lost all the explanations given in Black Swordsman Arc regarding Apostles and God Hand. Berserk 2016 skips the Demon Baby, Berserk 2017 skips the Moonlight boy. And if we are talking about "normal" content that's been skipped...you'll lose the Wyald fight, Lost Children Arc, and tons of other stuff. READ FROM THE BEGINNING, I can't stress this enough. - BerserkGallery

That don't even matter when the anime won't even tell the same history as the manga .... and i'm not talking about adaptations, i'm talking about shit like skipping WHOLE major arcs, or just removing completely VITAL screens and even characters from the history ....Dracsxd


The first answer is incorrect. Berserk (2017) does end with that panel of Schierke smiling, but that happens in Chapter 249, and the Berserk wiki confirms it.

I started reading the manga after I finished all the anime adaptations (as well as the PS4 videogame to fill me in on what the 1997 anime, movie trilogy, and 2016-2017 anime left out), checked chapter 264, and shortly found that I had to rewind 15 chapters before that until I found that exact page/scene.
