Berserk is great

by -

Berserk is a great action-packed hackin slash anime, with a ok story. The animation got clean up a lot compared to when it was released on Crunchyroll and everybody was hating on the animation. Usually due to a strict time scheduling they have to cut corners when they’re releasing it for airing on television in Japan. If you’re a devoted fan to the berserker series I highly recommend in getting this series for your collection.

A welcomed and enjoyed continuation.

by

20yrs after the '97 show we finally have a continuation. 1000 chtr limit highlights:
This show takes us to much more demonic, graphic, and explicit content. Be warned that much of this was removed for CR but is shown in this release.
Of the controversy, Miura's work is highly detailed horror. 3D animation allows for fewer corners to be cut. It's a stylistic and production choice you just have to accept, just like the freeze frames, stilted low quality fight scenes, and gratuitous use of camera pans in the '97 anime were accepted.
Aside from the above, the show is excellent. The dub is good. I enjoyed the music. The fights are much more interesting, and I LOVE the sound design. Guts' sword is like no other, and it SOUNDS like no other now. They made every step he takes heavy and unique within the show. It's a detail I appreciated.
If you are new and interested, I suggest you start with the three recent movies, as this show continues the story from where they left off.

How do you even screw up this bad?

by

This adaptation is an abomination.

I’m sorry to all my fellow fans that feel this is a sufficient adaptation and are happy to settle, because i’m not. Berserk is hands down one of the best stories that has been told in years, it’s up there with lord of the rings and a song of ice and fire, it’s a masterpiece of fantasy work and the fact that this is the best a studio can do with that material is beyond a joke. The 1997 adaptation, terrible as the animation might be is far superior to this adaptation and the following season. Do not buy this, for the love of god stream it if you must experience it, however as a consumer it is in your best interest to stamp out these kinds of disgusting adaptations, otherwise the market would be plagued by them. Vote with your wallet and steer clear of this adaptation, go watch the 97’ series or read the manga by all means, because those two outlets deserve the support.

Offensive to the eyes

by

!!!WARNING!!! do not buy this if you are a weeb for Berserk.

If you are a real fan of Guts and the Band of the Falcon this is not for you.
This is for anime fans but not true Berserk fans, cutting out parts of the manga is one thing but rewriting things like when a character shows up far before they should is disrespectful to the IP.

The animation is ok at best and will make your eyes bleed at worst. The constant transition from one style to the next is jarring NOT artistic.
