Berserk Film Trilogy

Quote:
The wraparound jacket band on the 35th volume of Kentarou Miura's Berserk fantasy manga is announcing this month that a new anime project is launching. More information will be provided in Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine and the affiliated Young Animal Web site.

The manga has been running in Young Animal since 1989. Oriental Light and Magic and VAP already adapted the story into a 25-episode television anime series from 1997 to 1998, and Media Blasters released this earlier anime in North America. Dark Horse Comics and Digital Manga Publishing are publishing the 34th manga volume this month. Dark Horse Comics describes the manga as the following:

His name is Guts, the Black Swordsman, a feared warrior spoken of only in whispers. Bearer of a gigantic sword, an iron hand, and the scars of countless battles and tortures, his flesh is also indelibly marked with The Brand, an unholy symbol that draws the forces of darkness to him and dooms him as their sacrifice. But Guts won't take his fate lying down; he'll cut a crimson swath of carnage through the ranks of the damned and anyone else foolish enough to oppose him! Accompanied by Puck the Elf, more an annoyance than a companion, Guts relentlessly follows a dark, bloodstained path that leads only to death or vengeance.

[Via Earl.Box, raito-kun, AICN Anime]

Update: More background information added.

Update: A television commercial narrated by singer, actor, and well-known Berserk fan Gackt will promote the release of the 35th manga volume. Four versions of the commercial will run from Wednesday, September 29 to October 3. The official website will re-open after a revamp on Tuesday at about 9:30 a.m. with the television commercial and a separate, web-only commercial. In addition, an official Twitter account, "Berserk_project," has launched. Source: Comic Natalie

So development hell froze over I guess?

Not that extreme yet. If Doom Nuke Forever being released in Q4 of 2012, I would consider hell froze over.

Jokes aside, I am surprised they decide to do another anime. Manga is going at an epic slower than snail pace. I could've sworn that there were couple of chapters somewhere with just many double spreads and 0 dialogue. Either way, I still like the series. I was guessing this would be an ova random than a full season, but looking at the updates and the amount of PVs they will be broadcasting maybe this will be a full season.

Wonder if the infamous horse scene will be on screen =O.

Will it be a reboot making it closer to the manga than the previous series?

Hopefully, they'll take off from where the previous anime ended. As much as I love the Eclipse, once is enough and I want to watch the rest.

Now, I'll be waiting for my Blame! and Vinland Saga anime adaptations... Suuuure...

Full CG can be quiet good, the PS2 Game looked really beautiful

Full CG? What? Dear god, I hope not.

Anyhow, my guess is that this new anime project is a movie (or several movies) or OVAs. That would be the best for Berserk.

That looks like the fight before the Eclipse so it would be a remake. But what about the CG news?

If nobutoshi hayashi resume his role as guts then I'm sold.

Also, I'm looking forward to seeing the Hawk of the Millennium Empire Arc and farnese (My ojou-sama) animated... iirc this arc is where all the cult orgy happened, right?

Why? They still have a ton of material left to cover. Unless you're saying for production quality purposes.

Either way this is awesome. I hope we'll be seeing this relatively soon, it is one anime I can't wait for. Oh and regarding it being a reboot, I hope not. The commercial doesn't say much because even though that scene was present in the original anime it was towards the end of the series if I remember correctly.

Looks 2D and a complete remake to me. Now the question is whether they are going to follow the Brotherhood model or not.

Edit:Now that somebody mentioned it, the armor looks somewhat CG on Grif and Guts.

What's making you think it will be a complete remake? Just from that commercial? It's probably too early to know, but I hope not. The first anime, while not perfect, covered the intro arc very well, it is time we move into the demon sagas imo (I don't know any of the real names, haven't been keeping up with the manga for 2-3 years now).

It's the fight from when Guts leave the Hawks.

The latter. There is no way to TV series - especially a long-running one - could do justice to the manga art. And while they have plenty of material left to cover, they will run out of it at some point. The manga isn't going to end anytime soon, as in, not even in this decade. We're at the point where I'm starting to wonder if we'll ever see the ending.

That could easily be a flashback. The first part of the PV is from volume 20 something since Griffith's got his pimp armor and Guts his prosthetic arm. I already know exactly which scene it is, and it wouldn't be weird for a flashback to be included there.

They specifically showed this scene of all possible scenes to show. Now it could either be because it's symbolic or it's because it's a complete remake. Chances are the 2nd especially since they need to change some stuff in the first series such as Puck and the Skull Knight.

Which is why, if this project does end up as a TV series, I hope they go with the remake than a continuation of the previous anime. Without the Knight, the escape from the Eclipse will become one grandiose Deus ex machina.

That being said, I'm not sure I'll be able to stomach watching Eclipse unfolds for a second time ...

To be fair the manga's pacing wouldn't be that bad if didn't come every 5-6 months with little more than 25 pages per chapter. =/

But anyway more Berserk is always a good thing.

Not to mention Sliat, and the 4 Assassins who become much more relevant as the series goes on.
