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, ...

I enjoyed seeing Griffith get the shit beaten out of him multiple times again, but I will remember the seventy-day countdown to a Blu-Ray and JPG as the funniest thing to come out of the Memorial Edition.

For Berserk first-timers, the OP spoils way too much stuff—even what they didn’t adapt—so please skip it.

For those who’ve already watched the three movies/read the arc, this adds the Campfire of Dreams, Judeau and Corkus’ conversation (without Corkus guess they couldn’t get the VA), Wounds, Rickert talking to a merchant, Guts’ Declaration of War, and improves the CGI throughout. The Memorial Edition still leaves out Guts’ full childhood, Samson, ...

Ok, so can we call this a remake, cu'z it kinda look like one????, Anywayz, as this franchise ends we await another sequel, probably a remake of the 2016 version of Berserk, so let's git er done:

Pros: The plot maybe the same as the og that was aired in the 1990's but it still retain that kind of story that involves gore, horror , action, romance and supernatural.....Everything was focus on Guts as we see that his life was full of shit where the only thing he know was to fight, there was also Casca the only one who can tame Gut's inner demon, but ...
