What is the plot of Berserk of Gluttony?
The story takes place in a medieval sword-and-magic world where there are two types of people – those who have been blessed because they have received a special power from God, and those who have been cursed for being without power . Those who have been given a power skill end up fighting monsters to level up and become successful. Those without an appropriate skill end up as “losers”.
The story revolves around a young man named Fate Graphite who is one of the “Forsaken”. The ability granted to Fate is called Gluttony, but it’s more of a curse than an ability, simply causing him to always feel hungry and never full. Fate was looked down upon all his life. Though Fate manages to land a noble job as a gatekeeper, the other Holy Knights bully Fate. But there is a Holy Knight standing up for him. Her name is Roxy Heart.
Roxy warns the Holy Knights who bullied Fate that their behavior is inappropriate for a Holy Knight and tells Fate to let them know if they ever bully him again. However, fate does not want the beautiful, golden-haired Roxy to interfere in his affairs, as doing so would earn her the resentment of the other Holy Knights, particularly the sneaky Brerick Lafal, and it could put her in danger.
When Fate goes to a tavern to eat his usual fare of bread and soup, the innkeeper warns him to eat meat or he will end up like his predecessor. Too much hard work and endless problems will lead to the “bad end” of fate. Fate knows this, but he believes he was born powerless and therefore accepts his fate of dying of overwork as inevitable.
One night, fate witnesses a group of bandits climb over the wall into the city from a place not visible from the front gate. Fate tells Roxy about the bandits and she rushes to intercept them while leaving the front gate to fate. However, a wounded bandit escapes Roxy and tries to get past the front gate, where he encounters Fate.
Fate manages to kill the bandit and suddenly his Gluttony ability activates and a new ability is added to Fate’s status – Mental Rating. At first, Fate does not understand what happened, but later he realizes that if he kills someone, he can devour his skills and satiate his insatiable appetite. But does it just devour her strength or consume her soul?
How many lives does fate have to take before its Gluttony ability is truly satisfied? Now what becomes of Fate after going from being completely powerless to being overpowered? We’ll have to wait until the anime adaptation to find out!
