In the Kingdom of Midland, a mercenary named Guts wanders the land, preferring a life of conflict over a life of peace. Despite the odds never being in his favor, he is an unstoppable force that overcomes every opponent, wielding a massive sword larger than himself. One day, Griffith, the mysterious leader of the mercenary group Band of the Hawk, witnesses the warrior's battle prowess and invites the wandering swordsman to join his squadron. Rejecting the offer, Guts challenges Griffith to a duel—and, much to the former's surprise, is subsequently defeated and forced to join. Now, Guts must fight alongside Griffith and his crew to help Midland defeat the Empire of Chuder. However, Griffith seems to harbor ulterior motives, desiring something much larger than just settling the war...

Probably the least suitable manga and arc for being adapted into movies instead of television. The Golden Age arc needs detail most of all.


A great revisit to Miura’s world that features the most gorgeous 2D animation that the series ever seen. Cinematic and fast paced in nature.


its cool


Retold story of berserk. skips a lot of story and development.


The best anime adaptation of the Berserk series. Succeeds in making the characters look like the manga, but uses CG too much in some scenes.


Could’ve been better


Having not read the manga or earlier tv series I found this badass and very fulfilling. No complaints here, fantastic watch, great battles!
