Yes, it is good. I watched the whole thing in two nights because it got me hooked once I started. Coincidently, the Berserk Perfect Collection just came out and you can get the whole series for $84 at www.deepdiscountdvd.com

Berserk is one of the best anime out there..There are few good threads on this Topic which might give you a better idea...You can do a search on it...Also, Berserk is a Licensed anime, so it would have been appropriate to post your thread on the "Licenced Anime" section of the forum..Dont be surprised if the MODS lend you a helping hand on that....

It's definitely not Naruto-like (even tho I dont know Naruto that much), Berserk is not even a shonen, Berserk looks violent but in fact, the story is complex (not really in the anime cause some details disappeared and just cover the beginning of the manga), the psychology of the chara is so well drawn through the events...it's really powerful, buy these DVDs
As Go-lytely said, it will hook so much...

ahhh..Looks like you have read a certain thread from Naruto...Am I guessing correct?...Well, to try to compare those two anime will be waste of time and ideas...They are both good, the best actually, in their own ways...You just have to watch to appreciate and will get your own understanding...

Berserk is definatly a cool series but nothing like Naruto. But if you still want to compare it to Naruto there are a few categories you could compare.

Animation - It is an older series so the animation is'nt quite as good, but the art style is awsome.

Violence - Berserk has much more and lots of blood.

Storyline - They are right that the storyline is much deeper, but you should be warned, the Anime does not finish the story. It will leave you hanging, I have read on this forum a few months ago someone claiming that there would be a second season but I dont know if that has been confirmed. But be prepared, I will give a comparison to how the ending feels. It feels the same way I would imagine it would have felt if George Lucas stopped after Empire Strikes Back. But if your willing to read the Manga, or the second season comes out, then it should'nt be a problem.

Humor - I don't recall any humor in Beserk.

Overall - On a scale of 1-10 I'd give Berserk an 7, but if the story was ever finished it would probably be a 8 or 9 in my opinion.

YES WATCH OUR FOR THE HANGING ENDING. The ending is very disturbing also, well the whole anime is disturbing but especially the end. So unless you are prepared to get the manga to continue the story (which i have had NO luck in doing) dont watch this anime yet

Nah, its a must watch if you are into this kind of deep anime with very mature storyline. Its fill with violence and gore and the show is not complete without it. I personally like it very much and is trying to catch up with the manga.

Ya, there are speculation of Berserk season 2 from here...

I don't know too, haven seen any other sites followup the news.

If there really is a season 2, I will surely be looking forward to it.

The season 2 of Berserk is sadly like the season 2 of Hellsing : a pure phantasm.

Allthough it IS very violent, that's not all there is to it. It has some of the best character development I've seen in anime.

I have the whole manga of Berserk in hand. I'm really excited to finish the series also because of the cliff-hanger ending. I just can't find the time to read them because of school.

BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERSEEEEEEEEEEERK SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's soooooooooooooo lame. Anything you have in this "anime" is fight and blood... no plot at all. The movie Shiloh has more stroyline than that.
I didn't get through the first 2 episode. The only reason I would want it is to destroy it again and again and again.....

The manga is not finished yet. For all we know the manga could go on for another 10 years. Anybody knows when vol 26 will come out by the way?

Looks like Berserk is another title that either you love it, or you hate it.
