Berserk (2016) Episode 1 Impression
Berserk (2016) is a about a lone swordsman and will be covering the Black Swordman arc events not seen in the original 1997 anime. On this episode, Guts continue on his journey while fighting foes and evil spirits he encounters.
So I'm a fan of the Beserk series and saw the 1997 anime (not during weekly episode releases) long time ago. However I'm slightly disappointed the producers went into CG (computer graphics) ever since one of the latest Beserk movies they did instead of true animation like the original. But on the bright side, the new anime stays close to the series with the dark story/atmosphere, action and more (also the art/graphic style is actually not that bad).
Anyway, I don't remember ever seeing Puck (the elf fairy) and thought he was a female. Then I found out he was introduced in a movie and he even seems to be similar to Navi from the Legend of Zelda. Other than that, the action was great and it was nice to see more dark moments. Now what's going to be the next plot for Guts? Overall, nice introduction and cool dark action.
Conclusion: Nice introduction and cool dark action.
