I went to VIZ and Anime News Network but no news when Berserk Part II ( or Part III ) is coming to English Dvd/Blu - Ray in Usa/Canda
I don't know why they're taking so long but they're going to kill their momentum if they don't do something soon.

Has Viz signed on for all 3 films? Otherwise, depending on how the first one performed, they could have decided to cut their losses.

That's what I thought, but then I read that the English dubbing is already complete: http://otakumode.com/article/50d5419aae6c934177008943/English-Dubbed-Version-of-Berserk-The-Battle-for-Doldrey-Screens-in-Akihabara
 
I hope the Japanese BR for Movie III doesn't come out in August, like Movie II. Or maybe they wanted to release the BR for Movie II closer to the theatrical film release of Movie III. Just speculating ... *sigh*

I have a feeling that was the case. Wasn't the original theatrical release date for the third movie December? The original release date for the second movie on BR/DVD was probably supposed to be October or November. I have a feeling the third movie will be out in May or June. Releasing it in August would be pointless.

As for the US release dates... who fuckin' knows at this point. :puck:

How good/bad did they sell?

Maybe the next 2 will just be on Itunes or something.

as Sam speculated , I also think closest we will see movie 3's DVD and BD is May/June
The only reason I could see them delaying it a bit would be if they wanted to include a special sneak peek of the rest of the Berserk project or something. They probably won't have anything to show for a while though.

Depends if they already had started to work on something... but I doubt like you said that they will have a lot, if at all, to show.
 
you would think Viz would see the longer they take for Part 2 the more it would hurt the there profit

maybe there wating for the next big Anime Expo ( by the way what/which is the next big Anime Expo . ?)

Saw a commercial on Neon Alley today. The second movie will be premiering this summer on the channel.
Confirmation of a cable premiere, and no word of a disc release in the states. Did the first movie really sell that poorly...? Or is this a matter of one department giving advanced notice, while the other is late in saying anything.

Neon Alley is an anime streaming service actually. I'm not sure if that's better or worse though. It might have more to do with Viz trying to shove Neon Alley down people's throats than with how good Berserk sold. EXCLUSIVE ON NEON ALLEY and all that.

Ah, sorry. I had never heard of it before. Just saw it described by Viz as "a 24-hour channel featuring the world's best & most popular anime."

Didn't the first movie premiere on something similar before the blu-ray/dvd release?
Yeah the first movie was shown first on Neon Alley as well. Ive been subscribed to Neon Alley for some months now and would recommend the service to those who like english dubbed anime. Looking forward to watching the second movie before the Blu Ray release. i hope this Berserk project keeps getting supported even though i know some fans are unhappy with it. I would like them to at least make it up to Griffith's rebirth.

That might be difficult without Guts Junior. :slan:
Where there is a will there is a way haha. i just need to see the fight between Lord Mozgus and Guts. We all know they should have done it true to the manga like Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood but we gotta take what we can get fellas. I know im not the only one who wants to see some animated Black Swordsman action.

I appreciate how the tech he's using looks so futuristic compared to what you'd expect to see on a stage these days. Afterall, we live in 2013, damn it.
