Hey that CGI tho....... Tbh I think the show will look better than these "incredible" teaser trailers, but the real question here is wtf happened to the Black Swordsman and Lost Children Arc? Sure Tower of Conviction is easily my favorite arc, but those two are vital in establishing Guts as a Character. I hope we get some form of them.


Yeah, looks like those two arcs are getting skipped or are going to be incredibly rushed. A shame really. Granted, the Conviction arc is great but it would've been nice to see those arcs (especially the fairy one).

As for the trailer...meh. I'm not really impressed, but I'm watching regardless. My only hope is in like 10 years or so some studio will just remake the series from the beginning similar to HxH (2011).

So someone did comparison on shots from previous and new trailers...HOOO BOY.




Did they seriously make it look WORSE now? wtf


The shading was changed
the details are gone
They somehow made a PS2 game look better in comparison.

Uuughh.

This picture accurately describes the reactions of all Berserk fans after watching the newest trailer.

Ha pretty ironic for MAL anime fans these days who prefers good story more than art and animation and now look at this shit criticizing a future masterpiece just because the looks are fugly

*checks list in excitement* *looks up after Jill and Rosine's VA's* *shakes head and reads again*

WHERE ARE THEY ?! Are they seriously thinking of skipping Lost Children chapters ? If so, the show already failed me before it even started. For me, that part is VITAL. It shows Guts' loneliness, struggle and hatred against the apostles, his helplessness and the lenghts he's willing to go to achieve his vengeance. He's straight up savage for most of it. We've gotten a hint of it being adapted at the end of the new trailer, where that tree appears. Guts fought the tree first time he met Jill, so I had my hopes up. Now seeing this list... I dunno. Jill and Rosine were also pretty big characters, they should've been announced. Having watched and loving Kingdom anime with the shitty CG, I can certainly put up with Berserk no matter how bad it looks, but only if it would properly follow the story for fucks sake. I guess time will tell for sure, there's less than a month left.

Looks great, apparently there is something bad about CGI?
I mean, I guess all those "Berserk fans" won't be watching it then. It's not as if any of us are paying for it, lelz.

Looking forward to seeing this arc.

So much crying. Wait and see babies.

I pity the people who only watch the TV series & movies, and don't read the source material -- the greatest manga ever published.

Does 3D anime sell good?

Ajin and Bubuki Buranki sold quite poorly iirc (BD).

Not sure about SnK and other 3D anime though.

Why a naked manfairy? Eyepatches are cool, get one. Guess I'll watch the previous.

Style & action are cool. CG inconsistent, shadows/faces etc ok in some, bad in others.

New crow much better animation (compare neck) and simplified colors/lines fit 2d feel better. Old had too much texture moves like paper animation.
Old vid too dark, new one too bright in some.
The old face much better animated intensity.
New armor looks cool, but inconsistent again with more texture & shading.

Why do they always do this to Berserk T.T

Really not a fan of the CG, Some of the backgrounds looked good but the faces to me looked horrid. Honestly, Sidonia no Kishi looked better.

I'll still watch it though, Can't miss berserk.

Looks like this is gonna be adapting the very first arc from the manga and the one following Golden Age.

I thought the water looked nice :)

Jun 10, 2016 11:54 PM by garydai

My eyes.... My poor virgin eyes...NGghhhGgh!!
There's a lot of CG-hate here
Still goin to watch it tho, Rikiya Koyama is on berserk again! with a bad guy role again :D

Jun 10, 2016 10:06 PM by K_Omsa



Looks like it's gonna be Kingdom s1 all over again.

Jun 10, 2016 9:31 PM by AvidAnimeViewer

Damn it, they are finally adapting one of my favorite arcs in the manga. Tower of Conviction, but it's going to be in this shitty cell shaded CGI.

Being a Berserk fan truly is pain.
