A good watch
4 July 2013 | by purpleprinc3See all my reviews

I loved the original series of Berserk and this movie series has been a great addition. The animation work is superb, crisp, clear and colourful, it's a pleasure to watch. Last review I wasn't too happy but I understand they are fast-forwarding through the story. If you've seen the original series, you'll still enjoy this for it's visual treat, and if you're new you'll like it all the same hopefully. The story of Berserk is great, I hope they stick to it faithfully. Anyhow if you're looking for an entertaining anime series to watch, definitely check this out you won't be disappointed. And now my review has come to 10 lines I can end it respectfully, check this out! :)
