Special thanks to Grail for making this awesome picture for me as part of the patreon project!  It's just amazing! Making it the main image for the Redux thread.

Wow! Love the re-enactment. Seeing SK and Void behind the camera gave me a giddy kind of laughter  :badbone: :ubik: Griff as diva was also a nice touch.
:femto: :slan: :ubik:

Aw, thanks guys, I appreciate it! :slan: This was a fun picture to work on, and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I think Azan was my personal favorite.

Very cool, Grail!  :guts: So much fun stuff to look at in this picture. I like Zodd in his apostle form costume and Guts there looking over his lines. :ganishka:

I love the expressions of Azan and farnese. Adorable!  :ubik: I also love the stink eye Sonia is giving Charlotte as she is passing by Griffith getting fawned over by her.

Berserk Redux - Chapter 5: The Black Swordsman is now out. The new fan-edit continues on from right where the previous one ends, at the Eclipse. With his comrades all lost, Guts goes down a new path into darkness against impossible odds, and becomes a dark legend hunted by the Holy See.

For those unfamiliar, Berserk Redux is a project aiming at blending together the Golden age trilogy, the í97 anime, the 2016 anime, and the musou game into a more faithful and cinematic narrative than the originals presented. The original media in each often left plot and character moment holes that other media filled. These fan-edits aim to fix that.
This particular fan-edit combines media from several sources to put together a Berserk plot arc not found fully in any of the media available, but only in scattered pieces. This led to four different primary sources for this film (the most so far) as well as significant help from the Berserk Fan dub community to fix several incorrect lines, and create previously non-existent plot elements.

Those familiar with the manga will know that the Count and the Lost Children arc are unavailable on any media outside the manga, and the 2016 anime takes several liberties, so donít consider this a replacement for either the very excellent manga, nor any of the original media included for that matter, all of which has itís own unique tone and personality.

Special thanks to Mista_L for audio splitting, and to the team at Berserk Fandub, CapnFloof, Lucien1911, Bomberguy, Diegmeist, Henry Schraeder, Crok425, and Shin Chie, and Manganomix for additional voice work.

CHANGES:
- This fan-edit combines The Golden Age: Advent, The '97 Berserk anime, The Berserk Musou game, and Berserk 2016, making this film the first Redux with so many different media sources.
- The 2016 footage is uncensored and has updated animations
- English Dub used for consistency with previous Redux entries
- All commercial break logos cut
- Replaced narrator dialogue with better voice actor that sounds like Void
- Updated the title sequence to have a dark skinned Casca and new music
- Updated the Dragon Slayer Clang Sound to sound less ridiculous
- Skull knight meeting now includes a lot of additional dialogue to set up the interstice better and explain the Demon Child, and Guts's quest for vengeance
- Casca giving birth is included
- Puck is now included in the bar scene after the time skip
- Added iconic 'It was too big to be called a sword' line after it's first use in the bar.
- Guts has nightmares about the Eclipse while camping in the woods
- Guts's encounter with the spectres at night in the '97 anime has been shortened due to looking bad and being very redundant to the dialogue after the skeleton fight
- The Demon Tree is removed due to it upstaging the snake Baron, being strangely placed, and using the canon too frequently. It is also confusing to Guts nightly hauntings
- The Snake Baron story is included
- The tree does not attack after the skeletons, and the skeleton fight is slightly extended.
- Collette and Morgan are included in the Bar scene, making them recurring characters
- Additional frames have been added to fight sequences that move too fast in 2016
- Added preview footage when Guts kills the second set of Holy Iron Chain Knights, because the original looked cheap and sloppy
- Flashback to Golden Age after Guts is captured uses original dialogue from '97 anime
- Small edits in Farnese's interrogation to remove some of the cheaper looking flashbacks
- Changed sword hits on spectres to match the sound from the Golden Age: Advent film
- Added small eclipse flashback to make the Apostles dialogue make more sense
- Cut about a minute of the Apostle and Guts talking about meat quality
- Small edits with the possessed Horse to make the scene look less pervy, but still feel uncomfortable
- Theres nothing I can do about the credits over the final images

The Black Swordsman is back. The latest fan-edit continues on from right where the previous one ends, with Guts on his quest for revenge against the Apostles and God Hand. But an urgent vision shared by all leads him back to Casca, who he had left in the safety of his friends. Meanwhile, after witnessing the supernatural with Guts, Farnese buries her insecurities with her faith by doubling down on religious duties by assisting an Inquisition into suspected Heretics at an ancient holy tower.

Notable inclusions in this edit are Zoddís vision, and an extended and fixed encounter between Guts and Skull Knight. Farnese and Serpico are no longer overtly brother and sister. Many other smaller edits, and voice dubbing have been made to correct the story and avoid visual confusion. The aim is to make this feel like a movie.

If any problems are spotted, please call them out and Iíll do my best to correct them in the next update.

There will be at least one more Redux coming to complete the Conviction arc.

Special thanks to Mista_L for audio splitting, and to the team at Berserk Fandub, CapnFloof, Lucien1911, Bomberguy, Diegmeist, Henry Schraeder, Crok425, and Shin Chie, and Manganomix for additional voice work.

CHANGES:
-Color correction will bring all four animation sources looking similar.
-Zodd prophesy scene added from Musou with new dialogue
-All commercial transitions removed
-All references to Farnese and Serpico being siblings has been removed.
-The encounter between SK and Guts has been re-dubbed and extended to be more accurate
-The heretic orgy has more ominous cult music.
-Clang has been diminished
-Many unnecessary crazy camera moves have been modified to be more coherent

Nice, thanks Bob! I forgot about the Berserk Redux project till now.

This gives me the chance to watch Berserk 2016 in English, which so far to me seems to be a really bad fandub (except the sweet PS4 Berserk and the Band of the Hawk Zodd scene :serpico:)
