Hmmm...... I have much fear considering this series. It's not just about being disappointed, this could become my new worst anime series I ever watched.....

Always good to hear some 9mm!

I decided not to finish the last season. Hope the new one will be more enjoyable for me.

CGI stuff aside, I hope the second season will be at least decent. It had a rocky start but improved as the show went on.

Not watching this (I was already pissed with how badly directed and handled this adaptation was, this is probably the worst directing I've seen in everything in last year personally, execution, handling the content, sound, animation and art... Yeah everything).

But at least I can expect an good ending from Yanagi again, so I'll look forward to that (the OP was garbage imo)

Any news on the next chapter? "Early 2017." ♣

Well at least we get to see Shierke and the Berserk armor animated... badly :(

I hope they have more of those really nice 2D flashbacks.

Also hopefully we get to more Hirasawa music. It would be great if he could just do te entire soundtrack, but thats unlikely.

I'm surprised there are people that still have faith in a Berserk adaptation, i will watch the first couple of episodes like i did with the 2016 one. To be honest i don't expect anything good so i doubt i will be disappointed.

is it still going to be CGI?

I so excited for this because Griffith will finally appear. Don't care about animation, the 1st season was ok.

I'm gonna go into this with the absolute lowest possible expectations. I was already burned once before and I'd rather not face ultimate disappointment again.

Although knowing that Hisawa and 9mm will return is a nice bit of info.

i hope they aren't doing that crappy child's play CGI.. I loved the artwork in the movies.. why not go with that instead..

Meh.
I feel like this will just tarnish Berserk even further. Not like 2016 was bad enough.
Hopefully Shin isn't directing this season.

I liked the music so I'm glad the same people are gonna do it again.

I am beyond excited for thisssss!!!!

Yay more Yoshino Nanjo!

Feb 19, 2017 8:34 PM by Tarotist

Oh, the same people are coming back to do the OP and ED. I liked both the OP and ED, so I'm happy with this. Also, it would be cool if Hirasawa makes another insert song for Berserk.

Yiiiissssss 9mm Parabellum is back !
At least something good is coming out from it.
