    Could be a lot worse.
    There are some parts that are hard to watch, the CG animation when people talk doesn't look natural at all. But the art without the CG looks amazing, a lot of stuff is being rushed, whole arcs might be skipped, characters introduced that weren't for many chapters in the manga, a lot of the camera angles are choppy and shaking unnaturally, but the voice acting is on point. I hope people give this ...

    Wow, that was legitimately terrible
    If you enjoy terrible looking anime with framerate issues to the point of slowing down worse than a PS1 game, then look no further!

    While some scenes looked good, a vast majority were pretty bad. The fight scenes were honestly terrible, with loads of cuts instead of actually bothering to animate it.

    In addition to this there were parts that were drawn poorly, and some of the story is ...

    Nothing too bad to say, but ultimately nothing good either
    Well, it's finally here.

    Episode one is a weird mix of the bar fight from the Snake Baron arc, the Skeleton forest fight, and those goons from Fairy Child arc as well, combined with showing a bunch of characters that shouldn't have appeared yet, but will shortly thanks to the cut Fairy Child arc. I can tell why they've mashed all of these things together, to at least include parts of the manga ...

    10 years after the original anime
    Will this series do the Berserk franchise justice, probably not. First impressions are of a rushed quality show that is trying to cut corners with the manga arcs and trying to make an edible, fast to consume product for the more general public not familiar with the Berserk manga.

    For the hardcore Berserk fans that have been starved by the slow releasing manga arcs and had nothing in the realm ...

    Skip this, like they're skipping whole arcs.
    They have removed every apostle battle and arc up to the end of the first episode so they can fast track through the plot. I can understand skipping the black swordsman arc, sure, pacing and all that, but HOW DARE THEY SKIP THE LOST CHILDREN ARC?! FOR REFERENCE, THAT WAS THE ARC FOR DEFINING THE TONE OF THE SERIES, GUTS'S CHARACTER, AND CONTAINED MANY OF THE BEST BATTLES IN THE SERIES! IT ...

    Interesting to see how it unfolds
    This animation style is interesting, it has been a long time i have seen it done good and not butchered. As for the story it can go either way really. I just hope there is more in the way of story progress then the first episode. I am not setting and expectations for this one, it can be great of a flop..

    Berserk fans Rejoice
    The animation isn't the best, But for Hard Core Berserk fans it shouldn't matter. If you are too fixated on the animation then i feel bad for you, Coming from someone who owns the entire Manga series, You will miss out on a Amazing anime/story if you cant get past the look. There are going to be parts of the Manga that you will not see, Arc's shortened or skipped entirely just as most animes do. ...

    Intriguing Adaptation/Continuation of the Berserk Saga
    So after so many years. we finally get the Black Swordsman Arc of Kentaro Miura's Epic Sword/Sorcery Dark Fantasy series "Berserk. While there are some bumps along the way, This series is a violent trip down the highway to hell and a sadistic pleasure to watch.

    This adaptation takes place months after the Eclipse (except the introduction which i am guessing takes place right after) and we are ...

    Not sure if I like this
    Going to say I am going to give it a chance, right now I will say as many have said that it is a little hard to watch. I have always heard such good things about Berserk but at the moment I am not sure I can watch this series as it is to completion merely for the art style trying to combine CG art styles in and make them look like hand drawn.

    Extreme Disappointment
    This show isn't what it could be. The animation style is awful. Nobody should be using this horrible 3D trash, if you want to ruin a show then that's the way to do it. The only redeeming quality about this would be the fact that it might make people search for the manga, which is so much better in every single way.
