One of the four bonus posters you can get from purchasing Volume 2

Looks like fan art.

Still looks better than the anime did.

Here are the other 3 out of 4 bonus posters included with the purchasing of Volume 2 (all unimpressive except the last, and even that one feels a bit off):

Thank you DANGERDOOOOM  :daiba:



Guts can now use his arm-cannon without pulling the string with his teeth?  :???:

But seriously, this one could have been nice but way too bright... For a split second I thought it was  :puck: doing his attack in the middle of the drawing ^^' maybe it will look better on paper.

I don't like Guts face in the last one, even if indeed the composition of the picture could be worse.
And in the first one, Casca and Puck look terrible, Isidro is weird, and unless it's supposed to be in-movement, Guts pose is kinda awkward, and the background doesn't help.

Meh/10

I'm trying to like all this new Berserk stuff, but everything associated with the 2016 anime just seems to suck/be underwhelming.
I would have seriously paid good money for a quality adaptation and nice editions with new/extended scenes and stuff (like I did with LOTR and usually do with my favorites anime anyway), and happily...

Man, these really aren't very good. Can't even be compared to those Miura did.

Yeah, even the poses are pretty uninspired.

I'm hoping that they at least uncensor it and remove the credits from the end scenes of ep 3 and 12.  Maybe with some luck, they'll go back and polish a little bit and fix some of the awful sound effects early on in the series. Maybe even the music. But that feels like wasted hope.

I think most people who read the manga would agree with you. The face of this man accurately portrays me whenever I view any new official (non-Miura) Berserk anime art. I try to be happy, but it's just not the same.

Still not worth $200

This was posted on Reddit and thought it was interesting.



Allegedly this is a comparison of the bluray version (left) and the version that we initially received (right).

Eh I dunno, this looks like a promising improvement to me:



Of course, it's not as if facial detail and expression was THE ONLY problem this animation had. But if they can fix some of the more wooden and poorly animated expressions, that certainly make for a better experience.

It looks like my boycott worked!

Seriously though, I admire them for constantly trying to make a better and better product. I know everyone shits on them, and they definitely deserve it, but they're at least trying. To me it seems like it's an issue of ability not intent. They're essentially the opposite of the people who made the trilogy films.

Well one thing they still haven't fixed is guts. His face is just... there's something wrong there.

Why didnt they make Guts has more 2D animation?

Also i hope the next anime will be all in 2D since they knew that everyone wasnt happy with the CGI.

The main issue for me is that Guts still doesn't look like himself. His thin, elongated face makes him look awkward.

Oops, didn't see your post. But I second this.

The S02 board is currently locked but my question is more about S01 anyway. ANN features the Japanese anime sales charts each week, sourced from Oricon. I never Berserk 2016 on them and typing out ベルセルク aka. Berserk on Oricon itself only gives me all the possible discs to buy. Does anyone know the sales figures? Thanks in advance.
(A show is usually seen as a hit with sales over 10k, if the budget wasn´t out of proportion, but approaching that number is good too.)

According to someanithing.com, it sold 803 copies: http://www.someanithing.com/5724/comment-page-1#comment-76309
I'm not sure if this was for the first or second BD box set for season 1, but in any case it sold horribly  :ubik:

Well no Wonder it got that kind of ranking. Sad though, but I guess this is what you get when you do a shitty adaptation...  :sad:

Not only that -- a shitty adaptation streamed for free in Japan, then sold on disc for an insane-people-only price.

Indeed, that pricing was a bit ridiculous and by a bit I meant a lot...

True thing is, I would I have buy it at some point, but not at that price. Definitely not worth my money for the moment.
