New Manga’s Angels Take Inspiration from Berserk’s Dark Cult

The manga Reinstated as the Strongest Flame Messenger’s angels share similarities with Berserk’s pseudo-apostles Mozhus and his disciples.

Demonic angels from a new manga called A Boy Who Has Been Burned by the Fire of Hell – Reinstated as the Strongest Flame Messenger share many similarities with Berserk‘s Mozhus and his disciples. That is, they do when Mozhus and his henchmen have transformed into pseudo-apostles. The reason for this specificity is because, in these particular forms, the Berserk villains have sprouted angelic wings.

In the manga Strongest Flame Messenger, a religious sect consisting of actual angels called the Holy Angel Church not only manifests in the human realm but sits in the center of the world, in an effort to keep an eye on man’s seven kingdoms. Mankind understandably tries to take advantage of their close proximity to such heavenly beings by sending them requests for assistance in their Earthly affairs, and although it’s rare for the Holy Angel Church to respond, every now and again, they are compelled to act. But it’s not because they care. It’s for a more sinister reason.

Of course, one of the few times the church decides to interfere is when it involves the series’ protagonist, a mage named Flare who spent the last 1,000 years burning in the Fires of Hell before escaping and becoming entangled in the lives of a fleeing princess and her guardian. The two royals are being hunted by the princess’ siblings who sought help from the Holy Angel Church to help them capture their sister, and the church recently agreed to aide the princess’ siblings in their bloody endeavor.

In the 14th and latest chapter, the only angel that the reader has been introduced to is Maurye, a creature who views humans as livestock, meaning he’s anything but angelic. In fact, when he tracks the princess’ whereabouts to a small town, he doesn’t want to take the time to search, so he expedites the process by unleashing a series of intense blasts that destroy countless homes. The angel’s lack of concern for human life is further exacerbated by the undeniable glee that he experiences from creating such mayhem.

These angels undoubtedly took stylistic and ethically questionable cues from Berserk‘s Mozgus, a chief inquisitor who seeks to cleanse people from evil through a myriad of brutally creative methods of torture as is common in Berserk with the help of his disciples. These correlations are more pronounced when Mozgus and his followers transform into pseudo-apostles, inhuman monsters who have not yet joined the ranks of demonkind. In this case, their particular forms mirror their religious ideas, so they naturally sprout massive angelic wings. And all readers see these pseudo-apostles do in the manga is enact various forms of non-angelic violence upon the hero, Guts.

Both Berserk‘s pseudo-apostle Mozgus and Flame Messenger‘s angels are high-ranking members of their world’s religious sect and, most importantly, possess the physical qualities of one of the holiest of beings. The normal depiction of angels usually embody all of mankind’s greatest qualities and herald God’s goodwill. But in both manga series, each of these holy creatures both espouses demonic views that align more so with the devil and relish in heinous pastimes that are unquestionably evil.
