So if the sex scenes had been toned down but the violence remained it wouldn't be R-18? Although there is also Slan and the female Apostle fondling their breasts. Meh.

Berserk is simply amazing just wish they'd have done a fourth film to continue on this epic story.

Only Japan can put an demon rape scene into an Anime and call it "normal".
HAHAH! That rape scene was one of the worst ending of anime series. Still remember how disappointed I was, after all those cool episodes.

Anyway, about the theme! Yeah! 18+ suits the film n my opinion.

I just read that there are probably going to adapt the manga into more movies:

I think there would be less impact on home video sales. They're not very good to begin with (only about 11k total after 4 weeks for the first movie), so I think it's reaching a pretty niche audience anyway. As long as it's carried on Amazon and in anime specialty shop (and why wouldn't it be?) I don't think adult status will affect it much. Most anyone buying Berserk (or anime BDs in general) is 18 or older.


The audience isn't that niche, the sales are like that simply because the movies are badly made shit.

UGHH. The trailer gave me the impression that the 3rd movie is going to end EXACTLY where the anime ended.

So I'm optimistic there is more to come. Maybe a slow-releasing 40-50min-per-episode OVA or more Movies?


If that happens and their is in fact a faithful adaptation with no skipping over anything then this butchering of an absolutely amazing arc would have been very much worth it.

Ok I take back what I said about the CG wasn't trying to annoy anyone.Plus who cares about the cg I'm just glad we get to see this.Btw will there be anyone other movies after the eclipse or they're just gonna end it with the golden arc like the anime?


In the original announcement from 2010/11 it said:

According to Natalie, "Berserk Saga Project" was announced to be launched. It will animated the entire story of Berserk. As the first work, an anime movie will be shown within this year.


and

According to the official twitter, the project won't be completed in several years. It will last ten years or more.


So I'm optimistic there is more to come. Maybe a slow-releasing 40-50min-per-episode OVA or more Movies?

the story is just getting butchered anyways, terrible CGI effects and literally half the important plots and character developments are being left out of the movies.
