So the last episode of the much maligned 2016-2017 Berserk adaption has aired. What to make of it? Rather than focus overly on this version’s numerous visual shortcomings, which are easy enough for everyone to see, I’d like to go more into the portions of story events that this version chose to show (or not show) us.
We have reached to episode 23, an episode that while it was serious in tone it made me laugh a lot, all thanks to Puck! Who for me it is the best character on this whole drama! Seriously I can´t get enough of him; but let us leave that for later. Now, let us begin with the chapter!
Welcome my friends, to the ongoing coverage of Berserk (2016-17), an ongoing experiment in whether great story can hold up when animated by two 15 year olds with an iMac from 1999. Seriously, the CG in The Last Starfighter looked better.
......This might have been the worst animated episode of the year, not including HandShakers.
I’ve stated in the past that the Troll Arc is my favorite arc in the Berserk manga and that I have been somewhat concerned that this recent anime adaption of Berserk might botch it. Thankfully the story seems to have survived the adaption. Similar to the role Aliens and Hellraiser 2 played for their respective…

After a long winter, this new adaption of Berserk is back! My brief impressions of episodes 13-15 are fairly similar to my feelings on the series as I left it last September. I’ve not been impressed by the execution of the animation from either the CG or traditionally drawn variety. It still seems choppy to me, like…

Now these anime aren’t necessarily the worst; just compared to their predecessors…
