Berserk: The Egg of the King Review | Japanator

Pedro Cortes:

For the past dozen years or so, I've had people recommend Berserk. Whether in anime or manga form, I've heard nothing but great things about it. As a fan of swords and sorcery from both sides of the ocean, I knew it was something I would enjoy. Thing is, there are so many things to watch, read and play that it kept getting pushed back on my list of media to consume. I'd see a tantalizing splash page from the manga every few months that would remind that I should read it, but I'd eventually forget and go on to something else.

When announcements were made back in 2010 about a new set of Berserk movies, I figured that would be a good time to get in. It would give me a basic understanding about what's going on and, if I liked it, I'd dive into the manga. Once again, I forgot about Berserk until I had the chance to review the first film, The Egg of the King. This time around, I made sure that I'd finally see this mythical series.

Was it worth the wait? Hit the jump to find out. (Anime, Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler)
