The Greatest Anime Of All Time

by on 5/14/2002

That's a pretty big title to wear, but, in my opinion Berserk is a masterpiece of Japanese anime. It's been a long time since i've seen a series where i couldn't wait to get to the next episode. The characters are well developed, and the relationships between them are well flushed out as well. This anime has a great story, and excellent action as well. But, be aware, I really wouldn't recommend this for anyone under the age of 18. The world of Berserk very much like the Medival age that it's set in. Dark and war torn. You will see blood freely flowing in this anime. However, this is a true anime fans dream come true. A spellbinding story!!! A must-have for your anime DVD collection! Read More

Surprisingly good!

by Kojiro on 8/5/2002

I didn't have the highest expectations for this series, however I was very surprised. The first episide is a little lame, typical low budget anime - dark hero, crazy monster boss, blood and action. But after that first episode, it all changes. The story is amazingly in-depth and grabbed my attention and won't let go. Now I can't wait for the next episodes. And even more surprising is the English dubbing is excellent. Excellent voice acting. Also, don't forget to watch the outakes, they are side-splitting! Read More

Product Overview

Is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true that man has no control, even over his own will. In the castle town of Midland, a new King has come to power through treachery and violence. His demonic agents victimize the citizens, until one night when the black swordsman comes to destroy them. However, the true motive behind the man's unrelenting grudge against the king is buried in the past. Before the twilight of Midland, a young mercenary named Guts fights for his fortune on the front lines. There he meets Griffith, known for being charismatic, graceful and deadly. Griffith's mercenary company, the Band of the Hawk, is a powerful military force and the talk of elite political circles. Between the strength of Guts' anger and the subtelty of Griffith's ambition, the face of Midland will never be the same.
