THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Well that felt nostalgic.

But still, not really used to the CGI stuff yet and action scenes. I really dig the music they used for the episode though especially upon Guts remembering about Griffith. So in essence, the show assumes the viewers are pretty familiar with the franchise already. Seeing Guts kicking ass was a pleasant sight to see though even with the narration except the shitty choreography.

The only thing good so far is the OP and the OST. That Blood and Guts remix is dank. The rest however is as nightmarish as the Eclipse.
The Idea of Evil is behind this amount of quality.

Bastardizing the story to get idolmaster Schierke in. Shit CG (but we already knew that). No care or love given to any part of this. Sasuga, Japan.

leave out crucial information that you have to read the manga to get. oh by the way fuck the manga fans because they changed everything. who is this for?!

Why am I a Berserk fan? All I ever experience is pain.

We are in the eclipse and Miura has sacrificed us

As someone who doesn't really care about the CG the only thing that could've bring down my excitement for this series was a not faithful adaptation.

Guess they still managed to screw that up sigh

Sigh ...... I wasn't exactly expecting anything but atleast they could've cared more about things. Let's just accept the fact that we'll never get a good Berserk adaption.

We have only seen one episode but I can confirm that this must be one of the worst adaptations I've ever seen, if not the worst.

It's not the best adaptation, but the first episode wasn't that bad at all. Yes, the CGI is pretty bad, maybe even worse than the recent teaser. But the voice acting, style, music, all was top-notch.

Who the hell was hyped for it? Everyone knew from the moment that it was revealed that it will be CGI it was obvious that it's shitfest.

Forget the horrible disjointed CG. This isn't even a faithful adaptation.

Get ready for a metric ton of people who either hate this show because of:

A.) The CG
B.) Because it doesn't adapt the manga perfectly panel by panel

I think people need to realize that CG is going to become the norm in anime because it's much more efficient in terms of production than traditional 2d hand drawn animation and in terms of an adaptation do people not get the fact that anime and manga are two completely separate entities? They exist in parallel to each other. An anime doesn't have to adhere to the manga at all if the producers want to take it in a new direction. As someone who reads Berserk this first episode already shows that they are doing things differently than the source material but for all that is unholy can we not relish in the fact that we get to see Guts kill shit again?

CG is sh*t. The studios needs to learn that people (at least i don't) want that. It might be cheaper or whatever but it's uglier. If every new anime becomes CG i'll stay with the old ones.

I partially checked this out for the lulz, but this was a whole new level of terrible. Berserk deserves better than this.

A little bit of a retelling near the beginning of the series, then it will quickly become a continuation of the TV series and the movies

Opening, ending, soundtrack and voice actors were amazing.
Animation was pretty damn bad, preview looked good but this is just dissapointing.
My main problem is WHY THE FUCK IS IT SO ZOOMED IN ? It feels like I'm watching something 2x zoomed, everything is so upclose, guts whole body was shown maybe for 3 seconds throughout the whole episode. I don't give a fuck about guts neck, legs or chest hair, if they zoom out 2x for the next episode, I might forgive them, but this is just downright terrible. Now that I think of it, it's not even cgi that was THAT bad, it was the fricking zoom in. Maybe it's some bad version that I downloaded, but damn it was bad.

I really wasn't hopeful for much but I mean come on! Wtf is with this steaming pile of mediocrity?! I knew the CG was terrible by the teaser yet it managed to look even worse in the full episode... I'm so saddened by the direction this is going as well as the 'style' it's being presented in. This will be painful to get through.

I knew it would be CGI but still.. can't bare to watch this. It'll just ruin my impression on the manga.

Can't say I'm disappointed like most others seem to be. Enjoyed this episode and looking forward to the rest

I have never read Berserk, nor do I plan to in the future, but I can already see this to be the case. It is just ridiculous that Bersek has been publishing for so long and as you have mentioned I doubt the creators really have a passion for this series anymore. It would be hilarious if they just left it incomplete and left a message saying "Fuck You" in Japanese. And by incomplete I don't mean releasing a final chapter and then never touching the series again, I mean releasing a half-done chapter that finishes on a page where Griffith is about to reveal a secret but there is no next page.

If they aren't talking or moving, then I gotta say... It still isn't that great... but not as bad.

haven't read manga, so I don't know what I'm missing... probably best that way.

I heard that's also a way to safe money. :D

But just seeing the reactions here I better keep waiting for more episodes lol..


Checked out 2 more versions, still zoomed in. I don't know if I will be able to handle it.

This was.... horrrible. It was barely animated, the pacing was off, the parts that were animated were awkward as all hell, and the CG looks worse then the PS2 Berserk game. Wow... just.... wow...

And the total slap in the face? It's not even a good adaptation.

Well, the CGI is quite bad but the episode wasn't garbage like some people are saying.

I'll keep watching and see how it goes.

I don't remember Guts vomit in the manga. Why did he vomit when killing a girl? When he already went through many battlefield. I guess he vomits to his own series adaptation xD

Can't believe noone but myself is mentioning the zoom in. Am I the only weird one ? I felt claustrophobic throughout the whole episode. It amazes me how noone else noticed.

Honestly the best thing about this adaptation is the soundtrack, the OP & ED music and at last the 20 seconds of 2D bits we get per episode.

Oh and the guitar riffs are nice.

Worse than expected. Good insert songs and OP. The 2D parts are great, I don't know why they have 3D-CGI obsession... But, I'll keep watching.

CGI looks awful and it's a bit different from manga, eh.
Hope it will get better.
