Synopsis:
Guts, known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces that pursue him and his woman, and also vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice. Aided only by his titanic strength, skill, and sword, Guts must struggle against his bleak destiny, all the while fighting with a rage that might strip him of his humanity. Berserk is a dark and brooding story of outrageous swordplay and ominous fate, in the theme of Shakespeare's Macbeth.

QUOTE (franzoir @ Mar 31 2016, 12:05 PM)This sounds sad and pathetic but it has taken me 4 years to work out what it is about Game of Thrones that rubs me the wrong way. Late last year I had the epiphany that Berserk is the original Game of Thrones and it all made sense. I have a love-hate relationship with Berserk. I was wayyyyyyy too young when I watched the original anime. It ended sooo horrifically with no resolution in sight. It was too much for my young mind to handle.

Even so...Berserk is one of those things where I am desperate for the end of the story. I cant read the manga because reading is a much more intimate experience than watching something and I just cant do it. So glad there is a new anime with new material. Been waiting maybe 14 years for it.also ep.1 isn't censored but, many manga chapters are skipped (flashbacks?)

First episode...the animation and the way the storyboard came together was terrible but I guess these are the compromises we must make.because its studios are relying on 3D CGI so much, even more than Golden Age film trilogy (except in Guts' Memories)... unfortunately i got used to it after Ajin and Sidonia, still nice ep.2 recalling his 100-men Battle vs Holy Chain Knights

Will definitely be watching weekly. Now that I've had my "epiphany" that people seem to have worked out a long time ago... I cant help but see alot of Berserk in Game of Thrones.

Anyway, I waited more than half my life for a continuation of the original anime series. I just cant read the manga. Reading is much more intimate than watching.

First episode...the animation and the way the storyboard came together was terrible but I guess these are the compromises we must make.

It was an okay reintroduction to Guts but the story seems to start moving next week.

At least Griffith back to the kingdom as cliffhanger was worth it, Casca too so i wonder if her "baby" will debut

Now that he finally beaten Mozgus and Hell‘s Angels in ep.11, I can‘t wait for Millenium Falcon arc next (no star wars)

On boy...the guy responsible for many personal nightmares I've had is reborn and pretty as ever.

I wished Guts could've murdered him right there and then but as this world continually proves only the wicked prosper.

Is this a continuation or a redo of the previous series? Or a slightly simpler question, can you watch this without watching the previous?

Its a continuation from the original anime series. You cant watch this show without watching the original series or atleast the films that recap the original series.

what's worse is that not only zodd but now more freaks join him, way stronger than his old band aside Gats of course... so even with schierke since ep.16 he'll need any aid possible, no matter if weak new companions or a cursed armor b)
