Berserk (ベルセルク Beruseruku?) is a 2016 Anime adaptation of the Conviction Arc of Berserk produced by LIDENFILMS, GEMBA and Millepensee.

The anime was announced in December 2015 in Young Animal magazine, with a short preview trailer released later in the same month. The series is heavily produced in CGI, in a manner akin to the Berserk: The Golden Age Arc film trilogy. It is directed by Shin Itagaki and written by both Makoto Fukami and Takashi Yamashita in collaboration. Shirō Sagisu is the main composer for the series and Susumu Hirasawa, famed composer of the 1997 series and following video games, returned to compose an insert song for the new series titled Hai yo. A second season, covering Falcon of the Millennium Empire, is scheduled to air in Japan on April 7, 2017.

The first episode was broadcast in Japan on July 1, 2016. Media distribution service Crunchyroll has obtained the streaming and publishing license for the anime, which is available for viewing at Crunchyroll's website.

TriviaEdit

  • This is the first anime series to be produced for Berserk in nearly two decades.
    • This is also the second anime adaptation to begin with the first few manga episodes of the Black Swordsman Arc, before immediately moving onwards to the next arc after the first episode.
  • During the series' initial run, Casca's skin color was recolored to be noticeably darker in the opening, starting from the premier of episode 11.
  • The special edition of the Volume 1 and 2 Blu-Ray box sets feature original cover designs illustrated and colored by Kentaro Miura.
  • A group of fans, unhappy with the new English voice cast, have started a petition in an effort to bring back the original English voice actors. [1]
