On the 11th issue of Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine of this year, it was revealed on Friday that the new Berserk television anime series will premiere on WOWOW on July 1 at 10:30pm. The anime is also scheduled to air on MBS, TBS and CBC starting on July 8, and on BS-TBS starting on July 9.
An announcement for this new Berserk anime series came out back in December last year, when the anime’s official website released a teaser promo video. If you haven’t watched it yet, then here it is-
Miura commented in Hakusensha’s Young Animal magazine in December last year, that the new Berserk anime project will depict Guts in his “Black Swordsman” appearance, which is only revealed in parts of the manga that go beyond any previously animated Berserk story, and is only briefly hinted at in the first and last episode of the 1997 television anime series.
The anime’s Twitter account has also been posting new anime character visuals over the past week:
The new Berserk anime adapts Kentarou Miura’s dark fantasy manga of the same name. Miura himself is serving as executive supervisor for the series. Shin Itagaki (Basquash!, Ben-To, Teekyū) is directing the anime. Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, Ōsama-tachi no Viking, Yuruyuri San Hai!) is supervising the series scripts in collaboration with Takashi Yamashita (Cencoroll). Hisashi Abe (Pet Shop of Horrors, Gunslinger Girl, Chobits) is designing the characters. Shiro Sagisu (Berserk films, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Megazone 23) is composing the music. LIDEN FILMS is credited for production, while GEMBA and Millepensee are credited for animation production.
Susumu Hirasawa is composing an insert song title “Hai yo” (Oh Ashes), and 9mm Parabellum Bullet will perform the show’s opening theme song “Inferno.”
Crunchyroll has also stated that they will stream the series as it airs. This opens up an opportunity for just about anyone to enjoy the show at home.
