Berserk

The new Berserk anime which will premiering July 1st, will be simulcast on Crunchyroll. It will begin streaming at 7:30 am PT. However, it seems not all regions will be getting the premiere at the same time. Asia, Australia, and New Zealand will have a different time to start streaming. There was no specification of whether or not it means it will be available to watch earlier or later than the other regions. Crunchyroll has also released a short trailer to go along with the announcement.

Based off of the manga of the same name, the first Berserk anime aired back in 1997. Later a series of films, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc were also released. There has been a lot recently regarding the series, such as the recently announced game and the first new chapter of the manga in quite a while.

About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.

    Do I have to know anything about the series before watching this?

    • Mr0303

      It’s very gory and violent, has some other mature themes and it will likely never end.

    • morzinbo

      I was more wondering if I had to watch a previous season or read the manga to a certain point to know what’s going on.

    • Mr0303

      Officially the new series is a continuation of the 3 Golden Age Arc movies, so you could give those a watch.

      I can also recommend the original anime, which really establishes the characters. The manga may be a bit more confusing, so I’d say stick with the on screen adaptations.
