Onetime Berserk mangaka and current full time NicoNico Douga maniac Kentaro Miura has revealed an ever deepening obsession with the cult online video sharing service, but one which has changed direction and now centres on popular eroge and ecchi anime Koihime Musou.

Here we see the progress of his condition tracked by his contents comments, published in Young Animal:


“Since I became an obsessive Nico maniac (Nico-chuu in Internet parlance), I no longer want to watch TV at all. Apart from human rights and Tibet, I haven’t a clue what’s going on in the world.”


“The final episode of my beloved NovelsM@ster!? I’ve been getting lonely, so I bought an Xbox and IdolMaster, hehehe.”


“With the Three Kingdoms boom, I’m totally lost in Shin-Koihime Musou.”

Via Ore-teki.

Whilst this choice of obsession may have won him praise for his good taste, there is sharply increasing concern that he will no longer be taking his magnum opus seriously…

    You guys are overreacting.

    Miura is a diligent mortherfucker compared to *ahem* Togashi.

    That's kind of pathetic, considering Young Animal is released twice a month.

    Can he do that, though? Just up and abandon the manga? I thought that manga artists working for a serial publication were signed under a contract, or something.

    Then tell us a single example instead of "lot" !
    Miura is good and Berserk is an epic who has run for 20 years and has all the good old fashioned style of manga!!!

    are japanese real girls really that helpless ?
    how about the idea of sending Moera a really really beautiful hardcore loving girl, to force him to work..

    We're gonna lose berserk for some time here

    While I love 2D girls myself, I still like real girls more... well some of them. But why is it that people fall completely for the 2D girls and start to dislike real girls? I mean sure, 2D girls are always young, good looking, have a nice voice, their personality doesn't change, most are nice and adorable, have killer bodies, dont betray you and so on. But the real ones have good points too! They are real for one and... and... well theyre real and.........
    God this is depressing, the real world sucks!

    somebody have to send Miura to real-world war-zone where he can be awakened to true GARness again. Dildom@ster and Koihime Musou is the cancer that is killing our pure Berserk! As the old Chinese saying goes, in this world there are beauties that can ruin an empire!

    One step backward for a manga masterpiece, but one step forward for 40+ year-old otaku mania acceptance?

    I can't help wondering what things may be like in another 20 or 30 years. How many people anime/manga/H has hooked today will remain interested in it as time goes on, how the industry may adapt if this happens (more older characters & circumstances, but still drawn/voiced moe and hot?)...

    the characters won't get older... that would defeat the point of liking them

    might aswell just like 3D if you want old

    What about the youthful body / mature mind archetype?

    Maybe I'm the only one, or not a true lolicon, but that childish ego is always something of a turn off for me. Good in small doses, if they're parodying it. Without some intellectual affinity, I wouldn't be able to keep up the charade very long.

    I thinking... Washuu (Tenchi Muyo), Horo (Spice And Wolf), Etna, Nagato Yuki, etc.


    And if you think about it, stem cell skin regrowth (not too far off anymore) would be a sort of revolution in keeping people looking genuinely youthful all their lives...

    yes, that's just what he needs.

    now that he's already corrupted, it's about time that he starts inviting other people to join him in his nico downward spiral.

    that might not help him finish berserk either. it's like that isolated author syndrome. it's a double edged sword. isolation brings solitude and free time to work, but also loneliness.

    A rough, future reference that I ought to bring out.
    I'm not really a fan of Kentaro, but I DO understand him.
    By being an Eroge Otaku, yes.
