Which movie? First one? Wasn't it like 5 seconds? At least that's what I saw people saying. Anyway glad it is!

Quoting someone who has the seen the film in it's entirety.

Guts childhood and some of the smaller battles were shortened to small 5 second quips.

They look to be little folders to store the tickets in. From what I can take out of the ropey translation, they will appear to have "farewell, Griffith" written on the back.

I noticed no one else has shared them yet, but there's been some new stills in the last radio episode (from number 15, number 16 has just been put up too). I'll only be sharing a few of them since I don't have the software to clean them up like Walter has done previously and they look like crap, but there are a few more in the radio show itself

Loving the scale of the battle in this shot though








You can view/listen to them here http://www.animate.tv/play.php?id=9778&c=4&p=berserk&e=15&v=9778#player In episode 16, from about the 35 minute mark, you can see the folders shown above, they appear to be A4 in size.

Quote
The official website for the Berserk film trilogy was transformed into a "feast version" in conjunction with Monday's annular ("ring") solar eclipse in Japan. The website makeover started on Sunday at midnight (Saturday at 11:00 a.m. EDT) and will last for the next 48 hours. The eclipse will reach its apex on May 21 at 7:34 a.m. in Japan (May 20 at 6:34 p.m. EDT).

Voice actors Takahiro Sakurai (Griffith) and Toa Yukinari (Casca) will host their web radio program "Berserk Radio: Band of the Hawk Recruitment Unit" live on May 21 at 7:30 a.m. They intend to reveal their wishes, for it is said that if you make a wish at the climax of the solar eclipse, the Berserk story's God Hand cabal will grant that wish.

In Kentarou Miura's Berserk storyline, a solar eclipse occurs once every 216 years and marks a special feast of sacrifice. The same shocking feast will appear in this winter's Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen III: Kōrin (Berserk Golden Age III: Descent) film. Berserk Golden Age Arc II: The Battle for Doldrey opens in Japanese theaters on June 23, and special eclipse-viewing glasses were sold with advance tickets.

Kinda cool I guess. Gotta love the way they describe the Eclipse. :troll:

Me too me too!! I'm soooooo freaking excited!!!  :ubik:

On a side note. I have a friend in Okinawa right now and I want to ask him to get me some Berserk stuff related to the movie. I don't know guys but does anyone of you know if there will be some available things there? As long as Okinawa is pretty far from main land. Right now I'm just thinking OST and that special booklet with the normal one. Can anyone help me out on this matter please  :farnese:

I know this doesn't give any number of sales but seeing Berserk this high makes me happy (not because it might have sold a lot, but because It's this high on rank, dunno if I'm the only one feeling the same )

Amazon Bestsellers Rank: (No. 25 - DVD See Bestsellers in DVD )
Ranked # four  ─  DVD > Blu-ray > Anime
Ranked # 7  ─  DVD > Anime

First press DVD is also sold out at Cd japan, now if only  we knew how much did they have in stock till now


EDIT: Here are some tweets by a guy who watched the second movie today, they're google translated from Japanese (duh)

The day of the eclipse I saw the "Berserk Ⅱ". Eclipse came out in the scene prior notice of Ⅲ. Enjoy the rich and erotic grotesque, but had also murmured Mr. Yoshida still recorded. The power is not turned into a highlight, was drawn from the first work. # Berserkfilm

According to a person on another forum, the estimated sales on amazon for first movie blu ray and dvd aren't so hot. It can be less or more than the estimate, but the person told me ( he/she has a thread for posting anime sales for years ) that it's most likely not gonna sell roughly 10k, at least not for now. The true number will be known in 29th May, when Oricon will post the sales for 21-27 May

Estimated Blu ray sales in Amazon: 5,300
Estimated DVD sales in Amazon : 1,107

These numbers were yesterday

I'll put the "stalker" source when I get home.

Here's the source of estimated sales in Amazon http://www27392u.sakura.ne.jp/index2.cgi?smd=title&titlename=%83x%83%8B%83Z%83%8B%83N&sort=reldateup

This is just an estimate based on rankings on amazon. The most accurate results will be on 29th May, hope it's roughly more than the estimated!

(seems it has got 178 more blu ray points since yesterday)

Hey fans!  Just want to let you know that I got the Berserk bluray today.  I have a whole bunch of pictures in the merchandise thread.  I'll paste the bluray details below.



- Yes, the bluray disc works in a US PS3 (and all others that share the same region).
- There are 4 audio tracks (all Japanese) and 1 subtitle track (Japanese subs).
- There are 2 special features.  One is just all the voice actor clips on their youtube channel.  The other is a 3:40 second montage of Movie 2!!!  It's pretty much all Doldrey fight scenes.  The CG looks excellent in these clips!
- The booklet comes with a whole bunch of images/sketches/production shots.  I took a few pictures just to give you an idea.
- The slipcase is definitely a nice touch and a MUCH better cover to the movie than the original cover.
- The soundtrack inside is just 3 tracks, and it's really just excerpts from the official soundtrack.  Nothing crazy here.
- The pens are pens.

Will write my thoughts on the actual movie later! :serpico: :guts: :carcus: :slan: :iva: :casca:

I just finished watching the first movie and I enjoyed it overall. My main problem with it is that it feels way too rushed, even as a standalone film. Several scenes were cut and others were merged together. The scene with Zodd felt extremely rushed, cut down to about 6 minutes or so. It does make me a bit more optimistic about the possible inclusion of Wyald and the Bakiraka in the third movie even if volume 11 is condensed to about 10-12 minutes.

Sorry, I'm not good at reviews.

For any of the UK guys that might be going to the MCM expo in London on Sunday. They have given the following presentation time for the English version of the anime

Quote
Kaze UK panel ft. Beserk presentation: 1.30pm-2.30pm at MCM Theatre B

I'm sure this will be followed by poster signings etc. If they happen to show us an English dub clip, I'll be sure to let you know my impressions.
