Do you think Miura will ever finish it before he drops dead? I mean there are manga authors who never got around to finish it so there are some concerns in regards to him and the person working on Guyver.

So I'm presuming we can also talk about manga, if not then my apologies.Of course. I dunno the answer to your question, though. I just used to get manga at Borders, but the only thing I collected was Berserk. I never bought anything else, and I stopped when I realized how far Miura was from completing it.
I've wondered that for years because I've heard he's had health problems. He's not even 50, but the first volume came out in Japan 24 years ago and some of the release dates of the following volumes have been pretty far apart. He's never released more than two a year and starting in 2007, it hasn't been more than one. In 2012, no new volume was released. I don't know what frequency of releases is common for manga, but those books aren't long, so who knows how much longer it will be or if he even ever finishes it, because while I haven't followed what's happened in later volumes, I hear there's still no sign of it reaching an end.
And I didn't know the Guyver wasn't finished. Shit, if a comic can drag 5 years longer with 7 fewer volumes, that doesn't make me optimistic. I actually just started watching the OVAs last week, which are pretty entertaining. Never seen the 2005 series.
