Berserk TV series Bluray BOX Set (Japan)
« on: August 24, 2011, 04:03:18 PM »
Not confirmed yet, but seems likely: http://muhootsaver.tistory.com/1389

I've been following this site lately because of the new Kenshin OVA Bluray set that comes out today.  Apparently, sometimes Japanese BD anime includes English subtitles, so there may be a chance with Berserk, but who knows?  Anyways, if there are subs, I'll definitely pick it up!

Would be nice if confirmed, especially with subtitles.

Don't anime blurays also usually contain remastered and reanimated scenes? I know I've seen a lot of charts showing how they corrected and added to the animation in a lot of different shows for bluray releases. It'd be sweet if they did that for Berserk.

Pretty sure an upscale of a '97 low budget show isn't worth it  :slan:
As for remastered and reanimated material, I doubt it.

Well, they did that to DragonBall Kai... Not sure what else that's happened to. I'd like to know, though.

I think if they put out a Blu Ray of the TV anime, it would just be remastered.

Well, maybe for stuff from bigger studios or currently airing releases, but for something like Berserk from a studio nobody can even remember the name of without looking it up(besides Aaz and Walter  :iva: ) that may not even produce anything these days, I doubt it. It'll be shittily upscaled and the remaster dvd version DirectDK worked on will probably still end up looking the best out of everything released.

Balls. Blu-Ray is region-coded, right?

Cdjapan says it's region free (Amazon doesn't, though), but anyway blu-rays have a similar region code for the US and Japan, so you'll be able to play it without any problem.

Very cool indeed. I would probably consider buying if I had the cash and didn't just buy the whole serise on dvd a few months ago. It would be cool if they had some added insentive to buy it with a swag-tastic limited edition or something but I doubt this would get such treatment.
Where did I go wrong? Iíve got a sneaking suspicion it ainít over. A kindred connivance, Iím ripped and in ruins

Artwork looking good ^^

I have to disagree. Not a fan.

Eh. I still have to buy this. Though I wonder if Media Blasters will grab this release and put it out out in the US.

The original box set artwork (done by Miura) is the best by far.

Wow, that artwork for the blu-ray is worse than I could have imagined; it's even worse than this:



Well... maybe it's a tie for last.

The original box set artwork (done by Miura) is the best by far.

It's one of my favorite paintings of Guts period.


Anyway, if they don't truly remaster it for blu-ray, is there any practical reason to get this over the lovingly crafted DirectDK edition?

That DVD Box cover looks the best so far. The new cover looks real bad, I wouldn't have recognized the Griffith on the cover it there wasn't a Berserk logo on the box.
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

It's about as gross as the new film's poster.

I'd buy it, but since I prefer subbed anime I'll hold out for a Western release..
