    Poorly executed yet loyal adaptation
    Berserk 2016 has many sins, some of which are forgiveable. The CGI is wooden, verging on uncanny valley territory. The brief appearances of some admittedly nice looking 2D art makes the 3D all the more jarring and off putting. The music, while okay on its own, clashes tonally with this darkest arc of Berserk(so far!). It is either the far too bright and uplifting "Ashes" (aka Hai-Yo) or painfully ...

    Lazily done work drags a great Name through the mud.
    I am writing this because of the pure rage I feel towards this series and its creators, for taking one of my most beloved stories and creating a cheap production to make a quick buck.

    I tolerated season one for just being a B teams first attempt at a show with a new style and lamented that now we would have to wait another 10 to 15 years to maybe get a new adaption. However season two comes ...

    Where is the rest of the scenes?
    What happened here, did IMPACT pictures get ahold of this first? They are good at the pan and scan let's keep the camera centered so you can't see what's happening sort of thing. Half of almost every scene seems to be missing, peoples heads and faces are missing, even the title cards have parts missing(the Japanese lettering above 'berserk') you don't always see some of the action taking place. It ...

    Animation Abomination
    This show is a catastrophe. A bonafide clusterf**k. And it's not just one thing. It's almost every aspect of the show.

    The animation is probably the worst you will see for years (from broadcast tv)
    The "camera work" is incomprehensibly bad (a lot of shots just make no sense)
    The character design is off-putting to say the least (some people look like they were
    drawn in completely ...

    An embarrassing adaptation of a classic manga series.
    I really, really wanted to like this show. I wanted it to be everything I ever dreamed of, I wanted it to be Berserk coming to life.

    When I realized that was not what I was getting, right around 10 minutes into the first episode, I wanted to settle, and convince myself that something was better than nothing, and that the story and characters would be enough to carry this series for me. Sadly ...

    Dreadful adaptation of a flawless manga.
    Just read the manga on Bato.to or something. This hideous CGI trainwreck fails to capture the glorious art style of Kentaro Miura. Berserk2016 raped Guts harder than Donovan. Usually I prefer anime over manga, but if the anime is this bad, and the manga is that great, read the damn manga.

    TELL ME WHY TELL ME WHY
    If you have any interest in the series please pickup the manga.
    Berserk is an incredible manga with an amazing story and amazing characters. The anime's terrible animation fails to capture the characters emotions and intense battles and fails to recreate the beautiful panels that are prevalent throughout the manga. This is the only manga I've ever read so try not to think I'm one of those "The ...

    Disappointment ( Next manga when ?)
    The animation quality ranges from manageable bad to plain insulting. Sound effect of [CLANG] is abused in every way imaginable . Soundtrack is ok but in no way comparable to one from 1997 . The whole adaptation is just a money-grab done lazily. Schirke is the only character that actually looks nice. My overall feelings about this series would be best described by the look on the rabbit's face and ...

    Comedic masterpiece.
    This is literally painful to watch. However, I'll tune in every week to get a good laugh. I was expecting it to be bad given the movies, but holy shit this is a new level of terrible I have only ever dreamed of. Skull knight, save us from this abyss of torment and deliver us from the Idea of Evil that spawned this abomination.

    Accidentally gave this one star
    They cut animation and switched to a stock photo during one of the most memorable scenes in the manga...

    In the second to last and last episode of the season they had the credits rolling during two important plot points to the story, way too distracting and took away any semblance of immersion this show could produce.

    The atrocious animation took away any kind words I could say about the ...
