Fleeing a traumatic childhood, lone mercenary Guts drifts from battle to battle, striking down powerful enemies with his unwieldy sword. After one skirmish, Guts clashes with the mystifying Griffith and his small army known as the Band of the Hawk. The victorious Griffith drafts Guts into his ranks, granting the swordsman a kinship unlike anything he has ever known.

Alongside the skilled warrior Casca, Guts helps Griffith guide the band to fame and glory. But as he gains military prestige, Griffith becomes the target of assassination attempts and political schemes. He uses Guts to further his ambitious rise to power, taking advantage of the swordsman's lack of aspiration.

Even as he grows closer to Casca, Guts' absence of direction robs him of any sense of belonging. Fostering opposing desires, Guts and Casca fight for Griffith's dream—although fractures forming among the trio threaten to disrupt their world.

Berserk: Ougon Jidai-hen - Memorial Edition was presented at the Aniplex Online Fest 2022 on September 24, 2022. Unlike the Berserk: Ougon Jidai film trilogy, this re-edited version features the popular scene "Bonfire of Dreams" from the original work, along with other new scenes and music. In addition, hundreds of existing cuts have been reworked and updated as remastered versions.

Aniplex released a six-disc box set on March 29, 2023, containing three Blu-ray discs with the complete series and three CDs with the original soundtrack. The Blu-rays include a special video with the interview of Kentaro Miura, shown at the Great Berserk Exhibition.

The definitive anime adaptation for Berserk's Golden Age arc.

To preface this, Berserk by Kentaro Miura should be experienced in manga form before you embark on any anime adventures for it, IMO — please go read the manga before trying any version of the anime, including this. With that being said, the Memorial Edition anime has cemented itself as the must-watch version of the Golden Age arc.

The Memorial Edition is the best bang-for-your-buck as far as length/number of episodes and content covered. It does not cover every single event (it's 12 volumes/102 chapters of content covered in 13 episodes, so keep that in mind); however, ...

Mixed Feelings
I wanted to write this review, just to be safe in case someday Berserk fans come and judge me.
right now I really like Guts as a character. I just hate this anime because Guts doesn't have many moments/scenes, because I can't stand to see another (bad) adaptation. I'll try to start reading the manga...

I don't have much experience in reading action manga and live to the fullest by romance standards. I'm not ready but I'm sure it will be worth it.

I've said everything I wanted to say so enjoy.. :

Another worst way to watch Berserk. I don't get how hard is for animation houses and the ones holding the rights of Miura's work to do it as it should. An average cut-down adaptation for this generation sensibility standards which was already heavily censored and shortened, that trades some of the most iconic, meaningful momments and crudeness, for some generic gore, extra fan service and CGI + movement-sensor-supported scenes that look mostly decent, while also ruining a few important parts.

Reasons to not watch over the 1997 version:

You've read the manga already.
