Is there anywhere I can watch this movie online? It's not going to be airing in the US i think and i don't want to wait for the dvd to come out (if it does).

I'll leave a comment in episode's discussion board probably, but ultimately it is only my opinion and you shouldn't rely on it much; who knows if you'll feel the same after seeing it. we could have completely opposite opinion.

What! How are you going to see it didn't it just get released in Japan theatres?
I envy you...
I live in Japan ^^
Today it started airing in the theaters and there is one 500 meters from my home :)


Wow, lucky you. Q_Q
But yeah let us know if it's good or bad! I'm trying to be optimistic and say it will hopefully be good and sticks with the manga!

So Korotoko will be the Evil Dark Lord Sauron who expects to see the Berserk movie fall and I'll be Gandalf the White who wants it to prevaillllll.


Hey Korotoko guess what happens at the end of Lord of the Rings. xD

You misinterpret me. I'm expecting it to fail but I want to see it "prevail." I want to be wrong.


Ah okay.....
But I still get to be Gandalf.

Tell me if it's good or bad when you see it. I'm expecting the worse after those 10 minutes.

dunno, it just looks odd to me. Like the facial expressions of the soldiers, the 3d rendering makes them look real weird.


Yeah I saw that to. It kind of looks like they paid less attention to the random soldiers and what-not and focused more on the main characters of the series, I agree with you though some of the soldiers I saw looked kind of funky. All in all I just hope these movies will be a success. These movies could play a big part to where the series will be going.(Depending if they are big hits or flops)

Didnt play the yt trailer, dont want to ruin it, since im going to see it in few days.
Overall I think this is a good thing, but nothing will ever match up with manga.
What this movie could do is bring new generation of people who will want to read manga after this.

I agree with you though I will enjoy the movie(Even though it won't stand in comparison to the manga) simply because it's Berserk but with better animations but not only that but I hope the movies gain a ton of popularity in hopes of
1.) Having them continue the anime or at least possibly keep making the movies after canon to the manga. 2.) Let the manga gain a ton of popularity and hopefully pushing the makers to put out more chapters of Berserk quicker then how long it is taking currently.
If I had known they take such long breaks in the manga earlier I would have took my time reading it instead of doing a marathon and burning right through it.

It's kinda weird.


NO ITS FUCKING BEAUTIFULLLLL

Just wish it wasn't censored and was subbed.. Ready the manga and watched the anime though so had a good idea what was going on..
Man I'm excited for the full movie subbed!

you sure? It reminds me of 3d rendering from a video game.



The reason it looks that way is because it's trying to stay true to Berserk's art-style while of course giving the animations and everything a nice touch-up. Of course it doesn't look as great as some animes you may have seen but it's a nice fresh change.(From my point of view at least) Who knows maybe they'll explain why someday.

I think Berserk manga is the greatest fictional work ever made. I just want to read more and more! It's really exciting with the movies and I hope they are at least almost as epic as the manga.

So it looks like these 3 Berserk movies will cover the beginning through the Ecliplse which is volume 13 and where the original anime left off. Is there any news that they will make an anime that takes place after the eclipse or is it simply not gunna happen?

Dec 3, 2011 2:30 PM by etork0925

YESSSSS!!!!! I'm SO excited for this!!


Anyone know if they'll be broadcast in theatres outside Japan? Namely Canada :3
