This is exactly what I've been waiting for
1 August 2016 | by psychotic_smileySee all my reviews

I was extremely worried going into this. I saw a slew of negative reviews on the first episode. I decided to ignore the reviews and watch anyway. I'm so glad that I did. I don't understand all of the nitpicking on this series. I love the rough animation style, almost like the manga came to life. It's picking up perfectly from where the Golden Age arc ended. They're pulling the story directly from the source. It's fantastic to finally see some memorable scenes from the manga brought to this medium. The censoring may throw some people off, as it's definitely made for television. If you can get past the fact that everyone has Barbie anatomy, and just be excited that we're finally getting the continuation of the story in anime form, it's awesome. I could be slightly biased since it's been years since I read the chapters that the current episodes are based on, but it seems faithful enough. We're gradually getting introduced to Guts' new party & there haven't been any glaring omissions or changes like there were in the first adaptation (i.e. Skull Knight!)

All in all, if you're a purist, I'm sure you'll find something to gripe about. If you think the first anime series is the pinnacle of all things Berserk, you'll gripe too. If you're a fan that has been following this saga for 15+ years, and has repeatedly dealt with the endless torment of a new hiatus on the manga for months or years at a time, I think you'll get some enjoyment out of this. It's just great that this series is getting something new added to it.
