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 new cast after the previous voice actors from the original anime declined to return.

Trivia

  • This is the first anime series to be produced for Berserk in nearly two decades.
    • This is also the first time that a Berserk anime has had a second season.
    • This is also the second anime adaptation to begin with the first few manga episodes of the Black Swordsman Arc, before immediately moving onwards to the next arc after the first episode.
  • During the series' initial run, Casca's skin color was recolored to be noticeably darker in the opening, starting from the premier of episode 11.
  • The special edition of the Volume 1 and 2 Blu-Ray box sets feature original cover designs illustrated and colored by Kentaro Miura.
  • Following criticism from the first season, CGI models are noticeably improved and episodes make use of more frequent traditional, 2D animation.
