Viz Media Nabs ‘Berserk’ Movie Trilogy Rights

1 min read

With an announcement that seemingly came out of the blue, Viz Media announced at Sakuracon [discussion] that they have secured the rights to release the three new Berserk movies that began coming out this year in Japan. The company was light on details but indicated that they want to have the first movie out this fall (presumably they mean home video, but could mean a theatrical release first). With the movies being distributed by Warner Bros. Japan and the relationship we’ve seen between the two branches and Viz Media with such releases as Death Note‘s live action movies and Gantz, this isn’t too much of a surprise in retrospect, but still feels like something that isn’t quite what Viz Media would normally release when looking at their anime projects in general. But expansion and change is welcome and these movies will be highly sought after by fans.
