This is great! I've been put off by the art style in the original series, so I never got around to finishing it. OTL

I'm strongly looking forward to see these films!!

And I hope the first film follows the manga and not the anime.

Seeing how much action there is in the manga, they better do a good job with the animation this time. Fluid fighting sequences where the proportions of the characters don't look weird = success.


studio 4c is pretty good so its no problem

I wish.



Anyway, all this news gets me more and more excited. A series of movies is the way to go as far as I'm concerned. They'll have a much higher budget doing it this way. On top of that, if the rumors are true(and so far, everything has been), Studio 4C will be animating. The project is in capable hands, and that's an understatement.

figures it will last decades and it will be decades till entirety berserk manga gets animated.
