The Band of the Hawk has dwindled in the year since Guts left them on his journey to forge his own destiny. Unaware of their fate, Guts returns to the Hawks—now being led by his former ally Casca—after a rumor about them passes his way. Once the saviors of the kingdom of Midland, the Band of the Hawk are now hunted as they desperately fight for their lives while plotting to free their leader, Griffith, after he was imprisoned for committing treason. But the man they save is far from the Griffith they remember. Griffith is a shell of his former charismatic self after a year of continuous, horrific torture. No longer able to walk, speak, or even hold a sword, he has nothing but the small, strange trinket, the Crimson Behelit, that will not leave him. The entire Band of the Hawk want to rise to greatness once more, but how much are they willing to sacrifice to return to their past glory? It doesn't seem possible, but when Griffith's heart darkens and a solar eclipse blackens the sky, the Behelit offers a choice that will leave the Band of the Hawk with a blood-soaked fate that will haunt them for the rest of their days.

OP1: “Aria” by Susumu Hirasawa
ED1: “breakthrough” by Kaname Kawabata”L’Avenement Closing Credits” by Sagisu Shiro


The strongest of the three movies. It’s a decent supplement to the manga, but still not as juicy as the real deal.


Still plagued by inconsistent CG and a few jarring directorial choices but is a fitting and harrowing conclusion to the Golden Age arc.


Something something “Griffith did nothing wrong”


“Love, hate, pain, pleasure, life, death. All of it here to enjoy, right before our very eyes!”


Good ending to the trilogy. Now if only the TV series that came after wasn’t so terribly animated.


This movie is amazing and did not hold back from manga point of view. Must watch series but not for the faint of heart.


its good
