New Berserk Anime Coming in 2016!

I absolutely love Berserk. Kentaro Miura was traumatizing his fans with on-page bloodbaths and painfully long hiatuses back when George R.R. Martin was still in Hollywood writing paranormal romance for CBS. One of the first real examples of "grimdark" in nerd culture, it is the standard that I hold all western fantasy to. So to me, this is some pretty badass news.

In addition to the announcement of a new ongoing anime project, there will also be a re-release of the 90s anime on blu-ray. Based on the animation it looks like Studio 4 °C will be handling it, the same company that produced the Golden Age movie trilogy a few years ago. The one image we've seen so far comes from the end of the Lost Children arc, which is one of my absolute favorites from the manga. From a narrative point of view it makes sense to continue on there, but I do hope that at some point we get to see the Black Swordsman arc.

Not much more news as of yet, but stay tuned for updates.
