New Berserk Anime Project Underway

Wraparound on latest Japanese manga volume hints at prospects

A new image floating out on Twitter today showcasing the latest volume of the Berserk manga by Kentaro Miura in Japan has a wraparound/obi on it that indicates that a new anime project is in the offing for the property. Berserk, which has its manga released by Dark Horse Comics in the US and is up to volume 34 as of this month, has been the subject of fans desires for many years to see it continue on. An anime series was done in the 90's but it covered only so far and ended on such a note so as to make many fans tear their hair out with the not knowing what was next. Thankfully, the manga was picked up later on and has been released in excellent editions by Dark Horse. The new project, of which is indicated we'll hear more information soon, is undetermined at this stage as to whether it's a new series, a sequel series or some other feature or even a special OVA produced to be sold with an upcoming manga volume. 

According to Comic_Natalie (h/t ANN), there are a few commercials in the mix for this manga release and word is that the website for the manga series will be relaunched shortly which may provide more information.

Which kind of anime project would you want to see? More TV material, and OVA release or even a theatrical venture?

Ok has to be said this had the greatest and most nonsensical anime song of any show I have ever heard of.  I mean really what in the hell was he saying and what in the hell did it really mean...talk about crazy engrish!

I'm all for another beserk project but I am rather surpised that you havent picked up on the genshiken 2 project that will pick up where the first manga series ended. That could lead to anohter season of the show. I even sent you a link for the scoop.

Oh well... Still I think it is cool for beserk to get going again I loved the seires.

I think that they that they will probably do a movie of the last story arc!

I think that a movie or an OAV that bookends the series would be great!

I hope that they don't do some random story arc in the middle.


I'm always happy to see more Berserk!
