With over 55 million copies published worldwide (as of 2022), Japan’s preeminent dark fantasy blockbuster is now available as a TV series. Since the start of its serialization in 1989, Kentarou Miura’s Berserk has continued to stand apart and make its mark on the modern manga world as a sterling example of dark fantasy. The Golden Age, a fan-favorite arc, was adapted into a movie trilogy and released in 2012-2013 in sixteen countries. The trilogy includes Berserk: The Golden Age Arc I – The Egg of the King, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II – The Battle for Doldrey, and The Golden Age Arc III – The Advent.
Now in 2022, ten years after its theatrical release, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc – Memorial Edition makes its TV broadcast debut. Popular gems such as the “Campfire of Dreams” scene not included in the 2012 theatrical release have been added to the TV series. Also, several hundred existing cuts from the films will be remastered to create an upgraded version. As with the theatrical versions, the cuts were newly animated under the guidance of general director of animation, Naoyuki Onda.
