  • Skipping some and CGI
    Even though they skipped some parts that would help explain in detail for certain things that were explained in the manga. Obviously, the CGI although it was nice to see the 2D animation coming in and out throughout the series. Overall I thought what they did in the storyline, in general, was good in the end. We better get a season 3, either way, CGI or not I'm still going to watch just like many ...

  • Amazing!--wait...no...
    I give it four stars because I'd honestly like to give it more...except...there's a pretty massive drop-off near the end. It stops being so much about Guts and having to control his inner rage (which is a great theme and speaks to many on deeper levels) and begins to be more about the kid with them...
    In the 1997 show, basically the prelude, it's not about each individual character within the ...

  • Why would you do this?
    The manga for berserk was drawn the best I have ever seen. Why would they take what one of the best parts of that and turn it into a crappy CGI abomination. Im not saying anything about the story, the story is good but its based off a manga so they basically just took the manga and made it worse.

  • A dark but very interesting tale
    I kind of wanted to watch this anime for a long time. I tried before but never understood how the story went,or maybe I just didn't put any attention to it until I watched the three movies in order. I became hooked , I went to watch the first episodes from 1997 on You Tube and I continue here after. There's so much going on. The differrence between the anime from 1997 , the movies and now this two ...

    Berserk is really good
    I very much enjoy the original series of Berserk, and i still enjoy the newer episodes too. I know they're different effects and editing but I thought it was pretty well done for the type of animation they brought in. If you like Berserk before they restarted the series, then you'll still love it

  • Great and bad at once
    The story is very well executed (I have not read the manga), the characters are all well made through their backstories and voice acting, the animation is to be desired... Still recommend giving it a watch if you can get past the lackluster animation style for 90% of the series, despite that, I still really enjoyed it. The final episode is the best animation style, so if season 3 comes out with ...

  • Great story, iffy animation that could've been better
    Berserk is a gripping and awesome series that pulls you in and keeps you watching. I had just finished the original series when I found this and the animation took me for a loop. I started off hating it and for a week or so refused to watch this because of how weird and foreign it seemed. Now I don't think anyone can defend the quality of the CGI here, its terrible and there are only a few points ...

  • a sad day for berserk
    Poorly animated and poor sound effects poor 3d that looks like something from a ps2 game at times. Some censur but i dont rly mind that.
    Atleast it follows some of the manga so its kinda worth watching.
    Hope we get something better in the future berserk deserves it.

    On behalf of all true Berserk Fans
    -CGI animation is truly painful and dreadful to watch. (It cannot express Miura's wonderful piece of art)
    -Some of the events are left out. (However, it doesn't hurt as much as the CGI)
    -Not much censorship is one of the good things they did.
    -Music is fantastic, I can say that they did a good job on this as well.
    -Voice Acting is superb but the animation doesn't keep up with the VA's ...

  • Great story/Poor execution
    The berserk Story/manga have always been one of my favorites. but the Constant reliance on CGI (Choppy CGI at that) absolutely ruin any chance of me being able to truly enjoy this anime adaption. hopefully sometime in the future a more competent animation studio gets their hands on the license for beserk and gives the masterpiece that is berserk the justice it deserves.
