The century-spanning war between Midland and Chuder continues unabated. The two warring kingdoms, vying for supremacy, launch headfirst into what will become the final battle. Leading the Midland forces are the Band of the Hawk, lead by the charismatic Griffith, with the fearless Guts as his trusted champion. But should the Hawks triumph again on the battlefield, the war with Chuder may end, but the secret war within Midland may begin as those who seek to rise within the court see the ambitious Griffith as an obstacle to obtaining power. And nothing is more formidable than an enemy unseen!

Without a doubt, the story of Gatsu is one of serious depth. Even if you have seen the anime and think you know it all, the books that move from the first moments of the Black Swordsman through the Great Eclipse reveal pieces of the story that enrich the characters and make them more human. Volume eight picks up the story during the conquest of Doldrey.
The translation feels much more natural that the clunky anime scripts, and the characters, therefore, are more real to the reader. Also, the violence is considerably more graphic, which in my opinion only serves to emphasize Guts' bloody path through life.
Whether for or against the gore, Volume 8 is certainly more tame than some of the others. In any event, this book is perhaps the most important of the early ones because it is the turning point, the crux. A must buy.
