Every week, we’ve been at the edge of our seat watching Guts and Griffith’s adventures in BERSERK. Today, we’re celebrating the show with a fun contest ~

Berserk has long had a connection to Shakespeare, so what better way to test your love for Berserk than with a POETRY CONTEST ??? We’ve provided a template if you’d like some help, but feel free to write whatever kind of poem you’d like ~



TO ENTER: just send out a Tweet or make a post on Instagram with a poem about Berserk and use the hashtag #BerserkPoem by Friday, May 12th at 11:59pm PST. Only one entry per person!!

We’ve got FIVE grand prizes for our favorite poems - each winner gets one copy of BERSERK and the Band of the Hawk PS4 Game, a Berserk t-shirt, and six months of Crunchyroll premium. Make sure to enter with the best poem you’ve got as soon as possible!!! Thanks to our friends at Koei Techmo for providing us with the games!!

Update!! We've picked the winners! Congratulations to @GundamF4L, @Solia_K9, @NickDavisAVKM, @Chr0nis, and @Tekkaman_Blade for winning ~ We'll be making an article with many of the entries early next week - keep an eye out for it!!

Deleted Twitter and I have no intention of going back nor do I have any intention of picking up instagram.
Shame there aren't any other methods, i'd post here but someone will only steal it and it would be annoying if it won

If it wasn't used on social media platforms like twitter or Instagram which are the worst social media platforms in the word. It would be better and safer to do it on the crunchyroll site forums than anywhere else. Why? Because as some people have said already, they don't use twitter or Instagram.

here's a way to make it fairer for everyone, do a petition against it for how unfair it really is. Not everyone uses social medial apps such as twitter or Instagram, nor does anyone want to uses it, so by making the contest use only those platforms you lose out and a vast majority of people who want to do the contest but can't and won't because of the social media apps needed to be used.

NEXT TIME MAKE THE CONTEST ONLY FOR "CRUNCYROLL.COM" NOT "INSTAGRAM" OR "TWITTER."

Could be worse... could be facebook... But bad to worse still is pretty crappy. Surprises me people still use those things... but I'm even more surprised people actually still watch tv. It ain't 1993 anymore grandpa!!

To be technical, it only takes 2-5 minutes to make a twitter & Instagram account so there is no use for complaint.
There are other forum or facebook contests and relatively good traffic on those platforms already.
So what I think CR are simply trying to venture out to other social media to increase the overall # of viewers as a WHOLE.

Just like many who only use Facebook-etc, there are also fans who doesn't use facebook AT ALL (due to privacy reasons) but has Twitter.

I wonder what some of the poetry entry will look like
Crossing Finger on it not being too bloody >__< 13+

You know forum is also part of that 'social (media)"

Am however not too familiar with the twitter because I posted it

"Sleep during the Day
Roam around at Night

(who) Buries the LIVINGdead and YoU ALIVE"
#BerserkPoem @Crunchyroll

But it doesn't seem to appear on the twitter hashtag page

Guess we don't always like what is unfamiliar to us >___<

being late means I cannot, but~ here you go anyway. I learned about the contest today btw. just written this 'poem' so pls enjoy your Guts out, lmao

Under dark skies,
you hear human cries,
as you lay in sheet,

a God Hand is born,
sacrifices sworn,
blood for u all.

Drink this Holy Grail,
and descend upon the world,
listen to my cord!

oh King of the Dream.
You jumped into the Causality’s stream,
learned to swim.

Guts on the ground,
in the mud and blood.
In the vomit and pee.

What does he see?
Your hands on her breast,
as you draw there your crest.

Let the world sink,
let their dreams die.
as you give up your last, human cry.

[ U KNOW WHAT IS FUNNY ? THERE IS NO POLAND ON YOUR "WHO CAN' LIST. PLS HUMBLY *** ***VES ;p as I wouldn't be able to even if I were on time. Thx ]
