Also known as “Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago.”

Nearly fifteen years after the Berserk television anime, Kentaro Miura’s manga series has received a new anime adaptation in the first in a trilogy of films, Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago (Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler), helmed by director Toshiyuki Kubooka (Batman: Gotham Knight episode 5) and animated by Studio 4°C.

if anyone hasn’t seen the tv episodes or read the manga you really should check them out.

I wonder if they might end up doing all of the manga that is out even though only a few movies are planned.

The Berserk project itself is planning to adapt the entire manga, though it’s currently unknown what form the full adaption will take.
They’re starting with 3 films though, covering the Golden Age Arc.

At first I was like: Yeah! Finally, more Guts, more glory. But then I found out it’s just a retelling of the anime series, and then I was like: um…[size=1]yeah[/size], 'kay, that’s cool.

So yeah.

No kidding, I also wish them far far away from anything I like or am interested in, because half the time it will be dropped mid-release. :angry:

I wonder if Media Blaster will release a remaster version of what they have. I sort of see the Berserk anime of these going for a remaster and if it could happen, a blu-ray release.

Media Blasters already released a remastered version of the show. However, it was only on DVD.

That wasn’t really a remaster. That was just them doing a different video encoding, the true film wasn’t remastered, like what they did with Rayearth. And it had a very limited print run, it’s no longer in print.

Film also to premiere on PS3’s Neon Alley service this fall

I’m still a little unsure if I want to get this. I mean, it’s the same arc as the TV series, which I can just pop in and watch the whole thing now, instead of waiting for all three movies to come out.

And from the clips I’ve seen, it’s not a really pretty movie…

But Nov. is quite awhile away so I have time to make my final decision.
