Great fast-paced action anime (not for kids) Posted by: from: on I picked up my copy of Berserk because I was looking for some new anime and I thought the cover looked pretty cool. After reading a few positive reviews online, and because the price for this collection was more reasonable than a lot of anime on disc I decided to go for it. I was blown away by the richness of the colors, the way the characters moved in the fantastic fight scenes, and the great voice acting. The story is gripping, and at times will have you on the edge of your seat. That said, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc is comprised of 3 feature length anime films derived from a long-running Japanese manga (comic book) series. While the first film and a good portion of the second are mostly standard medieval action fare, at the end of the second film and especially in the third the tone of the series becomes much darker. While I thoroughly enjoyed Berserk, it is not at all for children and has some disturbing scenes that will unsettle some viewers. If that doesn't bother you however, and you are a fan of anime and medieval style combat, this film collection will blow you away!

Loved it! Posted by: from: on Started watching the Berserk anime a while back and loved it, when I saw this at best buy, I didn't even realize it had a movie trilogy. I knew I had to get it and don't regret it at all. Really great mature anime show.

Excellent retelling Posted by: from: on These three movies are an excellent retelling and consolidation of the original manga, which was adapted into a prior anime series from the 90's. For Berserk fans, the movies include the major plot points from the Golden Age Arc in the manga, with familiar visuals from the anime. Only major changes were some tweaking of the character and object designs to make them look more realistic and not with typical anime style. Non-fans or new fans may have to pause due to the fast pace, but they can keep up and will be able to figure out what is going on. The combination of traditional animation and CGI were done very nicely.

There will be another series continue... Posted by: from: on It was dark story about the Demon. the battle sequence was really great, I never seen before in other animation. The CGI visuals were very well done, even music too. IT IS NOT FOR CHILDREN.

Great value Posted by: from: on You get 3 movies for the price of one! This is a great value for anime fans especially fans of Berserk. They will not make a reprint of these movies so expect this edition to go sky high for late collectors. They already bought out all the copies at my local stores and I would expect the same at others.

All three parts of a great Anime. Posted by: from: on To clear this up at the beginning: this is a three part movie that leads in to the series. It is based in medieval times, and incorporates the supernatural into a tale of a mercenary band that discovers an awesome warrior they want to add to their ranks. The character development is great, and the story is in no way predictable. One of my favorite recent animes. These movies deal with intense subject matter and violence. This is not an animated film for children. Treat it like Deadpool.
