Storyline

This arc is a flashback showing Guts' youth and what led him to become the "Black Swordsman". Guts grows up as a young mercenary until his enrollment in the Band of the Hawk. He develops complex relationships with Casca and Griffith, the Band's charismatic leader and holder of the Crimson Behelit, who leads the Band to its rise to prominence within the Midland army. Griffith is elevated from his commoner status to the nobility, causing some resentment, and after sleeping with the King's daughter, Griffith is imprisoned, and the Hawks are declared outlaws. The Hawks manage to rescue Griffith, only to find him broken mentally and physically. From a conventional medieval European background, the story shifts to fantasy and horror, with the apparition of the Eclipse ceremony that ends with the destruction of the Band, as per Griffith's sacrifice in order to become Femto, the fifth member of the God Hand, and reclaim his path towards his dream. Only with help from the enigmatic Skull ... Written by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Berserk_(manga)

Quotes

Griffith: Why do men like to shed blood, you asked. You are right in saying that it is one of the facets we, men, possess. However, it is but a tool to obtain what our heart desires and keep it from harm's way. I believe it to be a double-edged blade.
Charlotte: What your heart desires... a lover? A knight's honor?
Griffith: Both are important, aren't they? Fighting and dying for love and honor is what a knight desires above all else. But for men there exists something even more important than that. You know of it, I believe...

Great intro for a masterpiece saga
5 June 2012 | by (Belgique) – See all my reviews

Berserk manga by Kentaro Miura is one of the best saga I have ever seen, great script, great dialogues, great characters and all what mankind have to offer : from best to worst. But Berserk manga is actually very dark, very harsh, violent, and humanity got an ugly side, a real ugly one. This movie does a great job to introduce the Golden Age Arc. Unfortunately you don't have the Gut's childhood but instead just a flashback (showing his rape, his escape *do not worry since you should know this to understand his character when you began this movie and his reactions*). Griffith is the other main character, an angel face, a smart warrior, but a master puppet, who will shattered everyone who are against him... The Devil, God, "they are the same" from his own word. We know at the beginning of the manga that Griffith is actually a God Hand, and Guts... worst nemesis.
