Assuming this is a new anime or movies or something, what else is left to adapt at this stage?
That's interesting... To be honest, I was wondering if they were actually going to continue this project after I read they've been planning on this broadcast cut of the movie trilogy since before Miura's passing. (Meaning it wasn't planned to be just a "memorial edition" from the start).
I've never liked their adaptation of Berserk anyway, so if they are making another one, I couldn't care less.
Somehow I completely forgot it's the 10th anniversary this year while writing that comment, my bad, that does make sense.It seems they were thinking of doing it for the 10th anniversary of the movies' release, though
I doubt they would just out of the blue celebrate a 10 year anniversary of a set of Berserk movies that had been made unless they are reigniting interest in that specific version of Berserk and planned on doing something more with the Studio 4c versionIt seems they were thinking of doing it for the 10th anniversary of the movies
C’mon guys, let’s not be foolish. New movies/episodes? This is obviously teasing a new wave of berserk trilogy merch, featuring berserk cakes, wine bottles, and maybe some pencils and coasters too
And yeah, as you said it's a bit too early to speculate, judging by the countdown, it's going to be over on December 11th. Around when the Memorial Edition will be ending by my estimation.

I think it's okay to post screenshots and I'd like you to show the difference because i watched episode one and I didn't notice anything visually different, but I haven't seen the Berserk movies in a while so it's possibleI don't know if I'm allowed to send screenshots from the anime here, but I've been informed by a friend that they actually touched up most of the 3D models
On the positive side of this adaptatiom, it does seems to flow more naturally than the first movie (at least in the segmet we've shown so far), the animation have improved the shitty CGI from the few opening scenes, and the VA and audio mixng is pretty solid for what it is.
Yea, I didn't expect something more than that to be frank.Actually, I've watched both the movie and the first episode side-by-side, and there are almost no differences at all between them. A few faces have more details, but these are such minute changes that you wouldn't notice them unless you were specifically looking for them. Otherwise it's untouched, whether we're talking about the animation or models.
At one point they did this weird junji ito-ish bit where his face got all fuzzy, It felt like an LSD trip for real. GOD it will give me nightmares.They did speed up the Gambino flashback sequence though, making it even less intelligible than it was. They also slightly shortened the scene in the tent with Casca after Guts wakes up.
It was pretty terrible to present Casca with full frontal nudity in the films barely after making her debut in the story. I haven't seen the episode yet, I hope they removed some of that fanservice filler.They also slightly shortened the scene in the tent with Casca after Guts wakes up.
I was thinking that the 70 days countdown (it would end for the 11th episode of the Memorial Edition) could be also for the Eclipse episodes.

And that's why I like the 97 anime so much.By the way, to compare, I quickly rewatched the '97 anime, and let me tell you that while it's not perfect by any means, it's so much better than the 2012 version. It's somehow more faithful, more dynamically paced/edited and more to the point despite its low budget. It's kinda sad honestly.
I don’t know if this is of any importance but felt it as worth mentioning. The countdown on the anime website will be completed one hour after the episode for that day airs. I believe some speculate the countdown is for the eclipse but, I would assume that then it would finish either the beginning or end of the episode. Not half an hour after the episode airs? I don’t know though, it is too early to speculate anything, and this could be just a nonsensical thing I’m pointing out.
