Boushoku no Berserk just released its eighth episode last Sunday. This action fantasy anime hasn’t gotten the good spotlight, unlike other anime in this season. Maybe because it has a generic theme such as skill, knight, and so on.
Despite its unpopularity, this anime actually has a nice world-building which is explained when the story goes further. That’s what will happen with the episode 9 and later. The secrets of the world will be unveiled one by one.
If you haven’t watched this series, it is a great time to enjoy it. The ninth episode of Boushoku no Berserk will premiere on November 26, 2023. So, what will the upcoming episode tell? Read on!
Boushoku no Berserk Story So far
Hoping to help Roxy Hart in Galia, Fate begins a journey while keeping his identity anonymous. Along the road, he once again meets with Myne, the holder of mortal sin skill like him. Though she looks expressionless, she has wrath skills. Unfortunately, up till the eighth episode, the ability of her skill is still a secret.
Not only that, just like Fate, she also wields the mortal sin weapon series, the sloth. So far, the ability of that axe is it will get heavier every time Myne swings it. Of course, she can reset the weight back to normal at will.
The eighth episode of Boushoku no Berserk starts with Lady Roxy arriving in the city where Aaron resides. Like Fate, Aaron offers his tutelage to Roxy on how to become a stronger holy knight. Then, the scene changes to Fate and Myne enters Galia.
Their purpose in entering the ruin is, to kill Chimera which has a human as its core. Because it has outstanding regenerative power, that can be called immortal, Myne can’t defeat it alone. Thus, Fate’s gluttony skill becomes the key.
His skill can harvest every soul he kills and send them into eternal suffering in hell. Long story short, Fate finally defeats the chimera, Machine Angel Haniel. After that ordeal, Fate and Myne go apart.
The final scene shows Fate entering the sentinel city of Babylon, a fortress that separates the Kingdom from Galia. At the same time, Roxy arrives in that town. While everyone cheers for Roxy, one mysterious figure says something horrendous “Roxy has to die here”.
