A new key visual has debuted for “Berserk,” the upcoming television anime based on Kentaro Miura’s long-running dark fantasy manga.
The story centers on protagonist Guts, a lone mercenary in a medieval Europe-inspired world, and antagonist Griffith, the leader of a mercenary band. “Berserk” was previously adapted as an anime series that aired from 1997 to 1998.
The new series, which premieres in July on Japan’s WOWOW, will follow Guts in his “Black Swordsman” persona, which was explored somewhat in the manga but only briefly touched upon by the original anime. Miura serves as executive supervisor of the new “Berserk.”
