The Kensin production company's Art of War store announced on Thursday that it will re-release a popular statue of the main character Guts from Kentarou Miura's Berserk manga. Art of War will release the 'Guts: The Battle for Doldrey 1:10 scale' statue at the end of July or early August 2012.
The company has added several artistic details to this version of the statue using a level of reproduction skill it notes was not available 15 years ago when the statue was originally released. Shading has been added to the statue's mantle, and dust effects have been added to the statue's body, outfit, horse, armor, and helmet. In addition, a different shade of silver was used to create the armor to give it a more realistic sheen, and blood was added to Guts' body and sword. The statue will retail for 60,000 yen (about US$756) and is part of a limited set of 100.
Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen II: Doldrey Kōryaku (Berserk Golden Age Arc II: The Battle for Doldrey), the second part in Studio 4°C's film adaptations of the Berserk manga, is slated to be released in theaters in Japan on June 23. Viz Media announced last month that it will release the Berserk: The Golden Age Arc film trilogy in North America, starting with the first film, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc - The Egg of the King (Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago), this fall.
