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!
......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…
Following professional Shogi player Rei Kiriyama through the ups and downs of his young career, personal life and internal struggles, March Comes in Like a Lion promises to be a story rich in character development and heart-plucking drama.
The Fall 2016 lineup has taken off sprinting from the gun, however not every participate is as, how should I say, qualified, as the others to compete. What started as me rattling the sodium rich cage of the King of Salt himself, Gugsy, has turned into a reality as we have agreed to
endure the visceral suffering give…
Those Who Cling, Those Who Struggle.
The 12th episode’s title not only sums up this 2016 series but the Berserk franchise and to an extent its fandom quite nicely. Fans of Berserk know that contrary to appearances (even more so with this new series), Berserk is perhaps one of the most emotionally sophisticated and…
We are back with a new Berserk Article! Now... For this time, we will use a new modality called “Berserk Chat” where Jon, Myself and other members of AniTay will talk about this two chapters and the series in general. So get ready because the thing is going to be intense!
We are back with another Berserk post! Man this chapter truly was rushed in a lot of areas, to make a comparisson, they eat a whole volume and part of the other in the manga! in any case, the big climax is upon us regarding this history arc. So let´s check it out!
This week’s episode of Berserk picks up immediately after last week’s climactic cliffhanger, with Guts and Casca finally reunited amidst a throng of possessed cultists. As the demonized mob clash with the witch-hunting force of Holy Iron Knights there seem to be many parties working to cut that reunion short.
We are back for another Berserk Episode! My return is a little sooner than anticipated, still, now we are in front of one of the best episodes so far in Berserk 2016 Anime! So let´s check it out:
Six episodes in and the 2016 version of Berserk is moving along at a rapid pace. While the previous episode was mostly a setup of the people and characters surrounding the refugee camps around St. Albion, this episode gets the ball moving for many of the main players.
Jonuiuc will be busy this week, so as his brother in arms I will replace him this week! Coincidentally I will be the busy next week, so he will cover for me, amazing coincidence, isn´t it? On any case, this week´s Berserk it was one were while not much happened and can be said in few paragraphs, it is also one that…
After the action filled chapter 3, we are back with a chapter filled with character development and nostalgia…But did it make it good chapter for everyone? Let us check it out!
Well. Episode 3 was full of surprises wasn’t it? I have to admit, part of me was expecting for the events of this episode to be substantially re-written vs the events in the manga, but not in this fashion.
We are back to this week Berserk´s episode! After the (fantastic) introduction article made by Jonuiuc about the first chapter; the second one is the one that present us the history and works as a “Berserk recap episode” in various ways.
It is finally here, after over eighteen years, Kentaro Miura’s Berserk returns to the small screen. Please be warned this article will contain MAJOR SPOILERS for the anime, the movies, and the Manga through chapter 117 or so. I will not provide a comprehensive scene by scene summary, but I will share my thoughts on…
