Revision as of 03:20, June 27, 2017

This article is about the 2016 anime series. For the original anime, see Berserk (1997).

Berserk (ベルセルク Beruseruku?) is a 2016 anime adaptation of the Conviction and Falcon of the Millennium Empire arcs of Berserk produced by LIDENFILMS, GEMBA and Millepensee.

The anime was announced in December 2015 in Young Animal magazine, with a short preview trailer released later in the same month. The series is heavily produced in CGI, in a manner akin to the Berserk: The Golden Age Arc film trilogy. It is directed by Shin Itagaki and written by both Makoto Fukami and Takashi Yamashita in collaboration. Shirō Sagisu is the main composer for the series and Susumu Hirasawa, famed composer of the 1997 series and following video games, returned to compose two insert songs for the new series titled Hai Yo and Ash Crow.

The first episode of Season 1, adapting the Conviction arc was broadcast in Japan on July 1, 2016. A year later the first episode of Season 2, adapting the first half of the Falcon of the Millennium Empire arc was broadcast in Japan on April 7, 2017.

Media distribution service Crunchyroll has obtained the streaming and publishing license for the anime, which is available for viewing at Crunchyroll's website. In 2017 Crunchyroll released an English dub of Season 1, featuring a different cast from that of the previous anime.
