    Visuals are spotty, but it is still Berserk. (Episode 1-2 review)
    Berserk is a Dark (very dark) Fantasy story that follows the tale and plights of Guts. A man who, to say the least, has a few problems.

    I'll get the worst out of the way first.

    Visuals:

    Characters
    2/5
    I am a 3D artist myself, and the amount of modelling and animation flaws I see in this, frankly, is rather embarassing. Facial, body and skeletal problems are abundant ...

    Ignore the naysayers
    As a huge fan of Berserk, I was saddened to hear negative press about this show. I'm so glad I decided to give it a go anyway. The visuals take a while to get used to, yes, but the soul of Berserk shines here. The story is so good that you will soon forget about any issues you have with how it looks.

    A shell of what makes Berserk great
    This Show is an utter disappointment. The animation is awful the Characters are one note caricatures of how the are portrayed in earlier adaptions and the pacing was rushed. 2017 was an improvement However it is still a far cry from the quality of other adaptions.

    CGI is the death of good anime
    look, i'd like to say that today was a marvellous day for anime, but that'd be a lie.
    Berserk: The black swordsman... has arrived.
    to call this travesty an anime is a sin, source material, art style, even character motivations and personalities have been thrown to the wind to create this CGI blight upon humanity, Jesus i wish i was branded like Guts right now so it could end nice and fast.
    If ...

  • overly hated for stupid reasons
    this is a solid anime fair and simple, I loved the original berserk series to the point that its one of my favorite animes of all time. this continues the story from the original series, is the pacing a bit off sometimes? yes and no. there's episodes where it slows down suddenly but they have a lead-up and a purpose and follow the pacing of the manga and similar pacing to the original series. (one ...

  • Hey, that's pretty good
    Hey, this is pretty good. I've not seen the original so I'm a little lost about the "Previous events" in this series. Only thing that kinda made me cringe was the animations. Decent story and awesome action & carnage though, so if you like gore and action; then this is an anime series to definately watch!

    Great addition for Berserk fans
    I know a lot of people are critical of this anime for a number of reasons. I however love anything that is Berserk, and I thought the animation was unique and interesting. It's nice to see something different. I enjoyed it, and thought the story continued well. I am hoping they continue this. If you're the super critical type, you're going to find flaws. The characters aren't annoying, and it's ...

    Worth the watch, however certainly not perfect
    Pros
    Great story
    Great soundtrack
    Guts

    Cons
    Poor animation, it seems to improve but still quite poor overall
    The sword makes a stupid noise
    Even though it's essential to move the story forward, less time could've been given to her

    Overall
    Definitely worth the watch, the animation is downright poor sometimes but the story and soundtrack ...

    Don't judge an anime by its art style.
    I know that as a berserk fan, its great that finally they've begun to continue the arcs from the golden age. However i didn't get used to the first episode so easily as i loved the original anime's art style from the black swordsman and golden age arc. Although the anime's art style was somewhat off putting, that didn't stop me from watching the whole series because i knew how well the story was ...
