9mm Parabellum Bullet to perform opening theme song for July anime

Media distribution service Crunchyroll began streaming the latest promotional video for the new television anime of Kentarou Miura's Berserk dark fantasy manga with English subtitles on Wednesday.

The video, which is the same as the one NBC Universal posted at the end of last month, features a quote in German from Aphorism 146 from Friedrich Nietzsche's Jenseits von Gut und Böse (Beyond Good and Evil) work. The same quote is spoken in Japanese in the video.

The video also previews the insert song "Hai yo" (Oh Ashes) by Susumu Hirasawa, and revealed that 9mm Parabellum Bullet will perform the show's opening theme song.

The anime will star:

  • Hiroaki Iwanaga as Guts
  • Kaoru Mizuhara as Puck
  • Yōko Hikasa as Farnese
  • Kazuyuki Okitsu as Serpico
  • Hiro Shimono as Isidro
  • Hiroki Yasumoto as Azan
  • Toa Yukinari as Casca
  • Takahiro Sakurai as Griffith
  • Akio Ohtsuka as Skull Knight
  • Unshou Ishizuka as Narrator

Miura himself is serving as executive supervisor for the series. Shin Itagaki (Basquash!, Ben-To, Teekyū) is directing the anime. Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, Ōsama-tachi no Viking, Yuruyuri San Hai!) is supervising the series scripts in collaboration with Takashi Yamashita (Cencoroll). Hisashi Abe (Pet Shop of Horrors, Gunslinger Girl, Chobits) is designing the characters. Shiro Sagisu (Berserk films, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Megazone 23) is composing the music. Liden Films is credited for production, while Gemba and Millepensee are credited for animation production.

The anime will premiere in July, and it will air on the WOWOW channel and in MBS's "Animeism" programming block. Crunchyroll will stream the series as it airs.
