Crunchyroll is premiering the 1st episode at Anime Expo on July 2nd with a Q & A and autograph session with the producer of the new anime, Reo Kurosu. They didn't mentioned when they'll be streaming the episode on their site. Only that it will be "soon".

Oh hey, I'm going to be there actually. Guess I'll pop in and take some notes. HERE WE GOOO.

An hour and a half? Does that involve q/a and stuff like that after the showing?

Special "behind-the-scenes" video being distributed on Reddit. Features a short clip of the new anime (5 seconds or so of footage), around the 20 min mark, which is also just after an interview with Susumu Hirasawa. Nothing from Miura.

In the video: Boar apostle confirmed. Western fans of Berserk are goofballs. They show off some uncut, original manga artwork from recent episodes (those featured in Vol 38) -- always nice to see these.

The Falcon needs you. You don't need him!
And here is the opening theme in full, also courtesy of Reddit.

“Inferno” by 9mm Parabellum Bullet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emFVFZhSQKA

Personally, I really like the sound of it. :badbone:

Never thought I'd say this but I think I like Tell Me Why better. :SK:

On my first listen I was thinking this song was OK, now I cannot stop listening to it :puck:

It does not fit Berserk very well, seems more like a theme that would fit a Shounen type anime much better I feel.

Yeah.
Don't miss this exciting exclusive premiere of the eagerly-anticipated summer anime, Berserk! Be the first to see the long-awaited continuation of this classic, dark-fantasy action series--the fantastic, violent return of Guts and his trials and tribulations as he seeks his revenge against Griffith. Think this premiere can't get more exciting? Reo Kurosu, one of the producers, will be joining us for this special screening! There will be a special Q&A afterwards, along with a chance to win an exclusive Berserk poster, so don't miss out!

Well, it's certainly more memorable because of how hilariously bad it was. :troll:

The OP song for the new anime is pretty forgettable.

Well it's an anime's opening theme alright. Could be swapped with any other and it wouldn't make a difference.

Wow, you're right about that. :ganishka:
 
Hmmm in regards to the opening while I suppose it's technically more tonally fitting to series than the 1997 opening was it's not a particularly memorable song, pretty generic as others have said. And Tell Me Why had sorta a "it's so unfitting/clashing that it works" (or as others have said "so bad that it's good/memorable") vibe to it, many fans often couldn't help but love it (including myself).

"This hammer has broken Daemons on my anvil, Elf.
Yeah this new intro is as generic as they get. Im still pretty excited because 5 more days only! Hopefully OST will rock.

Hm, doesn't seem to show Berserk as " upcoming anime " no matter where I search even as a member. I guess it'll just pop up in 3 days.

Edit: Nvm found it.

Hmmmmm... Book of Revelations? Gut is "possessed" by evil spirits...? I hope these are just bad translations.

Revelations is probably okay but it shouldn't be a proper noun. Perhaps Guts means "pursued?" Either way, not a great start. But they got Falcon right, when almost no one else does.

I can't help but to get a little excited watching this trailer, its not perfect at time looks like a video game cut scene but this is real its happening its the Black Swordsman arc. I remember when I was younger it seemed like every year I'd search for any roamer on a Berserk season 2. So I do get happy that it is finally happening, at least in some form.

My guess is they meant to say "haunted". Their translation wasn't bad otherwise, it's more (again) the graphics that irked when I watched this.

You taffers!
In my opinion, the visuals aren't bad at all considering this is a series and not movies. Like all the others, I am a bit puzzled as to why they left out Lost Children. Especialy considering that its a fan favorite segment. But hey, I guess we'll see what this is all about soon enough. I paid my premium on Crunchyroll yesterday :serpico:
