Thanks, though it's all already in the ANN link Patrick posted to revive the thread.

Isidro and Griffith have voice actors assigned, which makes me really wonder what the scope of this animation will be. And uh .. Casca does too, so it could just be flashbacks for her and Griff.

Yeah this is the more puzzling aspect. I think this hints at an adaptation not just of the Lost Children chapter but the entire Conviction arc... And maybe beyond that.

The best news out of this, in my opinion, is Hirasawa is once again doing an insert track (the title perhaps?)!

Quote
Susumu Hirasawa (Berserk series and films, Millennium Actress, Paranoia Agent) is composing an insert song for the anime titled "Hai yo" (Ash).

The guy who did the movie music (Shiro Sagisu) is back for the rest of the soundtrack, so...eh. At least it'll be consistent with the movies?

Personally I'm sticking to my "wait and see" approach on this one. I'll reserve my judgment until it airs.

As much as I like this new image, I think it's the best thing to do. "Wait and see" I've been fool before with nice visuals before the final product.


Damn right! Susuma Hirasawa new track somewhere in that anime. Yeah!

Thanks for the heads up, Patrick.

It's kinda surreal for me to see voice actors listed for characters such as Serpico and Farnese.  It's finally happening!!!  Let's just hope it's good... :serpico:

I don't follow enough anime anymore to know anything about the rest of the staff.  I followed the links in the ANN database and from what I can tell, none of them seem like heavy hitters.  Hopefully Berserk will be their love child and they will put their best in.

Shiro doing the soundtrack is so-so news for me.  I liked a few of the songs in the trilogy, but Susumu will always have my heart.  It was too much to expect Susumu would do the full soundtrack, so I'm at least happy he will do one insert song, which may be similar to how "Forces" was used in the 97 series.

I'm eagerly waiting for the new PV video.  I expect it to show actual footage this time, as opposed to the teaser in December, which I felt wasn't necessarily so.  And generally speaking, July is not too far off at all.  Can't believe Berserk will have a new anime so "soon"!

I'm also going in with a "wait and see" expectation, nothing to get too excited over but also not much to really be super anxious/pessimistic about. In regards to the voice cast I found it interesting that while Guts, Griffith, Casca, and Skull Knight are all being reprized by their movie voice actors, they also got Unshou Ishizuka, who was Void/the Narrator in the 1997 series, to come back as well. Also interested to see how the new voice actors for Guts' companions will compare to their PS2 video game counterparts. Also excited for the new Susumu Hirasawa insert song.

Well it makes sense, they're not going to change the cast every time.

Uhhh hopefully much much better.

Oh, I didn't mean to imply that I was surprised that the movie voice actors were recast again. What I was pleasantly surprised about, was that that 1997 voice actor for the Narrator/Void was brought back, instead of the movie Void voice actor.

Uhhh hopefully much much better.
I agree that they will likely be much better. I was more indicating interest in what types of voices they will sound like in terms of range/tone, e.g. I've always thought the video game voice actor for Isidro had a vocal tone/pitch that sounded older than I would expect for the character, so I am curious if the new voice actor will have similar tone/pitch as the video game one or if they will go for a younger sounding portrayal.

Consistently bland then.
Berserk isn't really "dark fantasy" either. It's plain fantasy
Miura has been very protective of Berserk

Germany is known for releasing unreliable information. http://www.skullknight.net/forum/index.php?topic=14341

My mistake! I thought it was legit since it was on Crunchyroll. Thanks for letting me know!

Miura himself is serving as executive supervisor for the series.

What exactly is the job of an executive supervisor?

Hopefully more authoritative than his role in the 1997 anime as "script supervisor."

Is it possible Miura has put his foot down and decided to take the reigns of this production or is this wishful thinking?

Might be wishful thinking, but I'll be crossing my fingers!!  It almost sounds too good to be true.  And in less than 24 hours we should have a new trailer too.  AHHHHH the suspense!  :???:

I'm trying to stay really open minded about this project...but, does anyone else think Guts's face looks weird in that picture? It looks like some random swordsman is wearing a rubber Guts mask. I think it may be his mouth/lips and the way the shadows lay that's throwing me off.

His face looks weird to me too.  He looks ashen and or kinda wrinkly.  I'm sure he is supposed to be in full on rage mode so not weird to see his face change a bit but it does look off.

Its the first time we see Guts making one of his Black Swordsman sadistic faces with the newer art style, so maybe thats why he looks off.

They must have consulted Art of War for that face.
