posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website of the Berserk television anime revealed on Friday that the anime's next arc will premiere on MBS and WOWOW in April. The site also unveiled a new visual showing the story's iconic Berserker Armor.
The anime adapts Kentarou Miura's dark fantasy manga of the same name. 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 story follows Guts, a superhumanly strong warrior who wields a large sword, as he wanders a dark medieval world filled with demons, corrupt and decadent nobles, and other horrors. Every night, he is assailed by demons, attracted to the curse branded on him after a traumatic event. He makes his way through the world on a quest to slay a former friend turned demon, who took everything away from him.
The new television anime project premiered in Japan in July 2016, and aired for 12 episodes. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired and plans to release the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
