So do we know how far the 2nd season is supposed to cover up to?

Here's literally all we know for sure about the next season:

We don't know for sure, just that the Berserker Armor will make an appearance. Assuming of course, the show doesn't get cancelled halfway through due to poor ratings as viewers burned from last season decide not to tune in. Keeps fingers crossed.

If I were to make a guess as to where the endpoint would be, then I'd say it would be when Guts and company flee Flora's home about a third of the way through v27. The first season roughly covered five volumes of material (17-21) plus about the last third of v16. Since that endpoint means they would have to cover about the same amount of material give or take (volumes 22-26, plus the first third of v27), I'd say it's a good estimate. But don't quote me on this.

This is pretty similar to what I had guessed. We'll know soon enough anyway. I just hope they got to take more time on this one and not have it rushed like last season. I liked some episodes (mostly entertained during the entire season even though I swore a lot while watching it) but some parts were very terrible.

One can dream right?

Shamelessly dropping off info found on Reddit: https://twitter.com/berserk_anime/status/824792834297323521

Looks like the anime is to resume in April with a preview of sorts on May March 3rd. Official dates will be posted on the website (of course).

I think Delta meant March 3rd actually. But I think it's not so much a preview, and more likely a rebroadcast of the first season, based on info here:

Quote from: http://www.wowow.co.jp/detail/110351/-/01
Looking back on the special digest video together with the cast members in the first phase of the 12th episode of the first phase, the second phase of television animation of the strongest dark fantasy "Berserk" that begins in April is finished.

And here's an Anime News Network article with not much more info: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2017-01-27/berserk-tv-anime-next-arc-premieres-in-april/.111524

Note that the ANN article lists the staff from the 2016 adaptation. But that's conjecture. We still don't know for sure if these are the same people on the new season. It's LIKELY to be the case, but I think there's an opportunity them to switch up the director and a few other key people. Or just stick with the exact same team and hope for the best... Yaaaaay.

March 3rd? Is that day some kind of holiday? Lets see, nintendo switch, the new wolverine movie and now some type of berserk thing?

I mean, it's just going to be a repeat of the 2016 series. Not exactly something to bring out the party hats for.  :void:

Looks like a fan art...

Not saying it doesn't look good, but I won't be impressed until I see it in full motion.

And why aren't we seeing a voice actor for Grunbeld? Something tells me this is some sort of omen. :magni:

Thanks. That's the same staff as the 2016 crew, at least insofar as where it counts: Director, 3D modeling, story...  :schierke:

I bet you still won't be impressed once you do see it in full motion.

As for Grunbeld's absence, it's possible they just didn't consider him an important-enough character to consider listing him in the cast here. However, being as he plays a major part in the debut of the Berserker Armor, which they're so far banking all their promotion of the series on, I agree that it's a bad sign. Wouldn't be surprised if they just omitted him entirely or turned him into a voiceless grunt.

Thankfully. I was worried they were going to use that same god-awful pink they used for her HICKs amour.

I can't believe how much these promos look like fan art  :ganishka: Fucking hell

Honestly and "sadly"

This is my favorite arc of Berserk and Im not even excited about this anime... because i know the animation will be a mess not to mention how they will ruin the story telling.
I just hate it TOO MUCH how this masterpeice manga doesn't get justice treatment...
And just by seeing that poster. It really does look like a fanart. Isidro's tongue looks way too random

The Berserk MUSOU animation poster looks far far better than this.



The only way to make a good Berserk series to me is making it OVA..

Woof... so many things wrong with this.

Schierke's eyes look to be too far spaced apart.
Serpico became Roronoa Zoro after the 2-Year time skip.
They did such an amazing job on Isidro's face, that I could hardly recognize him. Wow, such talent.
Casca just looks odd.

And as for Farnese and Guts? Eh. I've seen better.

Again, I won't fully throw away this season's potential until I witness the first 5 minutes of the first episode. :puck:

This thing looks like a first draft. Ugh. I fully expect this to end after the Grunbeld fight. No way this season gets to Ganishka.

I'm excited for the Hirasawa performance. i see the name 9mm parabellum bullet up there again... :schierke: will they be doing a new opening or some one as first season? i hated that opening.

The opening is one of the few things I like about the 2016 anime. I'm surprised at the somewhat negative/muted response to it here on SK.net. Sure, 9mm Parabellum Bullet don't have that same je ne sais quoi as Susumu Hirasawa, but 'Inferno' fits the spirit of the series, IMHO... and the riffs are tasty as fuck.

Each to their own.  :badbone:

I would like to see Susumu Hirasawa opening. And I would prefer an opening with SIGN.

At least Susumu Hirasawa opening song will make this anime a bit better.

I didnt like the 2016 opening song. It just doesnt fit the dark world of BERSERK
