The director is Kubooka Toshiyuki (The general anime director of "Top wo Nerae!", the character designs of "The iDOLM@STER" game). According to the official twitter, the film project of Berserk will last more than a decade.
ehhhhhhh...i'm not as excited as i was before. while movies are nice, i was hoping for another weekly tv series...a reboot like FMA had. on the other hand, because its movies, that means some of the more graphic elements of the manga can be included, and thats always a plus.
Aahh Berserk <3
This is wonderful news, although I'm not sure if I'm excited about the "decade of Berserk movies" or overwhelmed by all the time I'm gonna have to wait for all of them... ah well, at least I hope they give a proper ending to the series now.
JESUS FUCKING CHRIST SEEING THIS MADE CRAZY JUST SEEING THE WORD BERSERK ON THE NEWS HERE ON MAL
Now all we need is for them to announce the staff for the movie!
They must have the BEST people on board(story,animation not like that OLM abomination, music, and of course actors.
Although I'd prefer the animation studio to be production IG but oh well studio 4 will do
This will rock your face. The 80s Berserk was okay but it really was sloppy around the edges. Revisiting the epic base storyline will revitalize it and really blow us away.... like others though I'm really itching to see some of the latter battles animated too. I'm doing my best to try to keep it in my pants.
Give us Puck. Give us the brilliant badass excellence that is Berserk. It will be Glorious my comrades.
I was really waiting for an announcement related to the movie. Now I have some idea of when I'll be able to see it.
Now.... ten years, for Berserk.... I see the movies will be pretty much like the manga... Oh, wait, te manga have more than 20 years. And I bet that even after the whole movie proyect, the manga will still have a long way to go xDDDD
It's funny that the Idolmaster guy is there, Miura sure must be happy (?)
An endless series of movie adaptations of an endless manga. Fitting, really.
I'd have preferred the Helling Ultimate OVA treatment for time and faithfulness purposes. The movies will most likely have years in-between them and if they ever hope to catch-up with the manga then they'll have to rush through/ignore certain parts. I'd be fine with the first 3.5 volumes getting skipped entirely, but rushing through the best part of Berserk - which the TV series already covered and may factor in any decision on faithfulness - would ruin it.
Hopefully, the Wyald fight gets included in anime form, this time around. It'd be epic. And the conivction arc is full of fights perfect for the move treatment.
