Viz Media is looking to capitalize on the upcoming interest in the new Berserk TV series by bringing out the recent feature film trilogy on Blu-ray and DVD in a new collection. Scheduled for a June 7th, 2016 release, they’ve now brought out the finalized cover artwork for it that really is one of the best images of the franchise out there. The release looks to bring all three films with all the extras that we’d seen before for $39.98 on Blu-ray and $29.98 on DVD. Definitely a fantastic value for an engaging and fun trlogy.
The English language cast includes Marc Diraison as Guts, Kevin T. Collins as Griffith, Carolyn Keranen as Casca, Christopher Kromer as Judeau, Doug Erholtz as Corkus, Jesse Corti as Julius, Michael Alston Baley as Nosferatu Zodd, Michelle Newman as Rickert, Patrick Seitz as Pippin and Rachael Lillis as Charlotte.
Plot concept: He trusts no one; only his sword. He doesn’t have a place to call home. The lone mercenary Guts travels the land, where a hundred-year-old war is taking place. His ferocity and ability to take down enemies attracts the attention of Griffith, the leader of a group of mercenaries called “The Band of the Hawk” who wants to recruit Guts for his band.
As the Band of the Hawk fight together and their bond as a unit is strengthened, Griffith and Guts’ bond deepens even more. Thanks to their continued success on the battlefield, Griffith achieves the first step in fulfilling his goal: his band of mercenaries becomes a full-fledged army within the Midland Kingdom. But despite all their success, Guts begins to question his reasons for fighting for Griffith’s dream. Unknown to Guts, this unyielding dream is about to bestow a horrible fate on them both.
