Average Rating

The Band of the Hawk and their enigmatic leader Griffith continue winning battle after battle as their prestige throughout the kingdom of Midland grows. But their latest task is one that has seen failure from everyone who has attempted it: the subjugation of the impenetrable fortress of Doldrey. But with members like Guts—the captain of the Hawks' raiders who can easily fell 100 men with his gigantic sword—such tasks prove to be trivial. However, in the aftermath of the battle, Guts decides to leave the Hawks in order to pursue his own dream and bids farewell to his companions, despite Griffith's attempts to make him stay. This single event causes Griffith to lose his composure, and leads him to make a decision that will alter his and the Hawks' fates forever.

griffith fucks everything up part 1


The action is the least important aspect of the Golden Age arc yet it gets the most attention in this movie trilogy.


An improvement from the previous film, using much better 3D animation. The 2D animation remains gorgeous. The story prepares for the climax


Second Berserk movie. You could watch this instead of the show or reading the manga but you should probably just read the manga.


Still leaves a lot out but also better than the first movie anyway good way to kill time I still recommend watching the original series


edgy but cool


The second part of the Berserk movie trilogy. Features my favourite scene in Berserk when Griffith makes a speech by a fountain.
