I've been in a Berserk mood lately, playing
Berserk the Game 3 Dark Souls 3 and just feeling generally pissed off at life (another topic/story entirely), so I checked the new episodes that seem to be getting absolutely horrendous reception.
Now, it is totally worth noting that I AM a huge Berserk fan to begin with. Love the original series, the movies and read the Manga up to volume 50 something years ago. I don't know whether it is simply a matter of my fandom or not, but I think the new eps are fantastic.
Maybe I am bringing my sensibility into question here but I thought it worth posting about anyhow.
NOTE: I have only watched 1 so far.
Large portion of the fandom is crapping on the new anime because of the bad cg and spotty animation that can be jarring in some scenes. The first 2 episodes really pissed off A lot of the fandom. If you are fine with the 1st episode then you will be golden with the rest. The quality is steadily getting better as the series go on. I am bummed they skipped an arc, but there is no way that was getting passed the censor radar
edit: One thing I am really dissapointed in is that they could not get Susumu Hirasawa for the the whole soundtrack. What is in Berserk (2016) is mostly recycled from the Golden Age and what is new is mostly remixed versions of said soundtrack.
