In an event with incongruously cheery decor, actress/enka singer/best-selling idol glamour model Risa Yoshiki appeared at Shinjuku's Tower Records to promote the recent Japanese DVD/Blu-ray of Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler. Cosplaying as the series' female lead Casca, Yoshiki made her appearance alongside voice actors Hiroaki Iwanaga (Guts) and Takahiro Sakurai (Griffith).
Yoshiki, a known anime and manga fan, praised Berserk for its dark, complex world and noted that it possesses a psychological depth that makes it appealing to adult audiences. When asked which character she'd be romantically interested in, the idol joked about marrying the large, silent Pippin.
While the event occurred June 10th, Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler was released on home video in Japan on May 23rd. Berserk Golden Age Arc II: The Battle for Doldrey opens in theaters June 23rd. The movies will be heading to North America via VIZ Media.
In March 2011, Risa Yoshiki appeared in a Weekly Playboy photo shoot with Hatsune Miku.
