The golden age arc is incredible
28 August 2015 | by darthsitkurSee all my reviews

A year after guts and Griffith part ways, he and the band of the hawk conduct a rescue mission to bail Griffith out of jail. I came across the first movie on Netflix and thought it was great, caught the second one on youtube and thought it was even better than the first, and bought this one off of iTunes and it was so intense and so brutal that it made Dante's inferno: an animated epic look like a walk in the park. The first two were action/adventure/war films, but this one was action, adventure, horror, and dark fantasy all rolled up into one. this is quite honestly the best animated film I've ever seen, and it's even better than the first two if you ask me. I definitely recommend the The berserk trilogy to fellow anime fans, they have great stories, great voice acting, they're filled with brutal action, they're creepy, they're dramatic, they're intense, they're raw, and they have insane amounts of gore. they won't be disappointed
