Berserk Film Site Marks Eclipse with Sacrificial Feast Clip

Voice actors to ask God Hand to grant wishes during Japan's ring eclipse on Monday

The official website for the Berserk film trilogy was transformed into a "feast version" in conjunction with Monday's annular ("ring") solar eclipse in Japan. The website makeover started on Sunday at midnight (Saturday at 11:00 a.m. EDT) and will last for the next 48 hours. The eclipse will reach its apex on May 21 at 7:34 a.m. in Japan (May 20 at 6:34 p.m. EDT).

Voice actors Takahiro Sakurai (Griffith) and Toa Yukinari (Casca) will host their web radio program "Berserk Radio: Band of the Hawk Recruitment Unit" live on May 21 at 7:30 a.m. They intend to reveal their wishes, for it is said that if you make a wish at the climax of the solar eclipse, the Berserk story's God Hand cabal will grant that wish.

In Kentarou Miura's Berserk storyline, a solar eclipse occurs once every 216 years and marks a special feast of sacrifice. The same shocking feast will appear in this winter's Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen III: Kōrin (Berserk Golden Age III: Descent) film. Berserk Golden Age Arc II: The Battle for Doldrey opens in Japanese theaters on June 23, and special eclipse-viewing glasses were sold with advance tickets.

Viz Media licensed the Berserk films for North American release.
