Jasaiyajin's Berserk Tv Review

Rated: 8

The manga presents itself in a future time first, then slowly works it's way back to the originating scheme of things. It's an original story with slight humor, but lacks a happy atmosphere. Berserk is certainly for those that enjoy a dark manga, a change from a happy ending esque pace most stories tell. As for originality, the protagonist is a sword wielding, straight forward human, along with fairies, witches, and demons mixed in a bag of nuts, called people that have more baggage than they can carry. Life, in all walks, is portrayed in the darkest of ages when people succumb to immoral and infernal deed amongst others.

I couldn’t stop reading the manga once picked up and I usually don’t read like a maniac all that much anyway.

Berserk is one of the best mangas ever made and this for its numerous qualities.The 90's anime series were ok but not that great in comparison with the manga, too censored, incomplete and short.The art style wasn't as elegant as Miura's, Guts personality is slightly different in the anime..etc. But its soundtrack was awesome! fitting Berserk's world perfectly. The new series from 2016 are pretty criticized by the fans for its 3D animation and art style but it didn't bother me personally on the contrary, i think it's more beautiful and sophisticated than ever and most of all more faithful to Miura's art style (faces & addition of hatching), Guts personality and attitude are also closer to the manga version.To me the 3D video game like animation adds some dynamism and realism to the anime, the funniest thing is that i've imagined myself a Berserk anime using video game CG style graphics years ago when i played the PS2 Berserk game, at the end of that game it was possible to watch all cutscenes in a row giving us thus the impression to watch a full movie. I also liked the video game graphics which i've found to be the right style to represent the hardcore Berserk universe. The 2016 series are also a good version you can say it's a sort of animated manga..But unfortunately the problem still the same in all versions. The story is not totally covered and it's even worse than in the other previous adaptations, it only shows some chapters from the manga in an abridged manner (many scenes were skipped), not mentioning the modification of certain sequences :/ Berserk has a long and dark story which makes it difficult to adapt faithfully. If you like Berserk then you must read the manga first otherwise you cannot understand the story. But as a big fan i was nevertheless glad to see the adaptation of certain chapters like those with Mozgus. It's just a detail but Guts gigantic sword really makes a cool sound in the 2016 anime Lol.

Berserk is a dark fantasy, which means Evil here is the supreme force that rules the universe, it is not about Good versus Evil but lesser Evil vs greater Evil, dark fantasy genre are supposed to be closer to reality. What i like about Berserk is it dares to describe the darkest aspects of life and dark human instincts in a raw blunt manner. It also satirize almost everything and everyone Lol.

Its main protagonist Guts is not your typical hero, he's not specially altruistic or sociable, just a dude cursed by a terrible fate which he tries to defy insolently each time. He's quite nihilistic and "bohemian" ..I like him for that Lol.
Guts tries often to hide his sensitivity behind a wall of cynicism which helps him to confront a dark reality, despite that he can be human from time to time especially with people whom he likes. Guts is not perfect he can show some ferocity when someone stands in his way. Also His obsession with Casca and Griffith fuels constantly his rage Lol.
Guts is frequently nicknamed bakemono (monster) by his adversaries because of his dark appearance and attitude (it is also a nod to the samurai movies in which characters like Zatoichi and Tange Sazen are sometimes called monsters).
In the other hand his archenemy Griffith is often seen as an "angel" due to his angelic appearance and gentle manners,it is pretty unusual in mangas that the hero has a darker looks than the antagonist and i think it's a smart way to say that true darkness is something that you can't easily notice.

If you like antiheroes and dark fantasy genre this anime is made for you.

This was a pretty amazing series, but I think having the first episode of the TV anime would've been better placed as the last. The animation was really amazing at the time and has aged well in my opinion, much better than the animation of the movies. It's disappointing the new TV series is still cast the seiyuu who did the movies, I wished they recast those roles to better VA's by casting seiyuu who would come close to the performances done by the seiyuu of the 1997 anime. I believe Yuuichi Nakamura would've been awesome as Guts, Daisuke Ono or Daisuke Namikawa for Griffith, and Ayako Kawasumi for Casca. Anime production for a reboot should've gone to Madhouse or MAPPA and directed by someone who can do the series justice.

Berserk. Berserk. Berserk. If you ever wondered what would a manga would be like if it made by god this is that manga. Berserk is no manga for the faint of heart. It's dark, mature, makes you question whether you are just as crazy reading this as the mangaka making this. This manga will be and always be the best MANGA period. Nothing can stand to this awesomeness. Guts is the badass protagonist that not even gods can take down. And he is trying to get revenge on his ex-best friend. It's the manga you deserve to read at least 6 times in your life. You should stop reading this comment about it and go read it now. GO! NOW! The greatness awaits you.

Really nice character design and art style overall. Guts is a complete badass, but his backstory/entire life is tragedy one after another. Even though I feel bad for the stuff that Casca's been through (cuz it got really bad after Griffith became a God Hand), I can't find myself able to like her character; especially while she was a part of the Band of Hawks. I sympathize with her but don't like her. Griffith is an asshole but at the very least he was upfront about what his goals were, that he would do ANYTHING to see them accomplished & stuck to that throughout the series so far.

This anime is definitely worth a watch. I enjoyed it. The story line is good. It doesn't drag on like some anime where it seems like they don't know what to do so they just put in filler episodes or crappy relaxing day out type of episodes. I'd recommend watching this anime to anyone that enjoys action anime.

Another classic IMO. It's a damn shame they have abandoned any further development beyond the 1st season of the Anime as it ends in quite a clifhanger. (luckily the manga continues so all is not left to wonder)

BERSERK RULES! BEST MANGA SERIES EVER CREATED! The anime did a damn great job, for the most part, at keeping to the manga and keeping all the intensity of the manga, though it ended WAY too abruptly. Good thing the manga went on for many, many more chapters! :D No other manga can compare to this, without a doubt.

It was one of the first "mature" Anime's I've ever seen, and it's a classic hands down. The animation was good for it's time, the characters were detailed with in-depth histories, and the story was Amazing. If you ask me it was ahead of it's time. If you haven't watched this one then you need to. Yeah, it's that good. :D
