Summary:

Demons have now become commonplace around the kingdom of Midland, which has fallen into chaos. The swordsman Guts still cannot stay in one place for long due to his demonic brand. He could always manage to protect himself when he was alone, but now he has the added challenge of protecting former Commander Casca, a shell of her former self who neither remembers nor trusts him. They never have a moment’s rest with the constant threat of demons, and they need a place where Casca will be safe till they find a way to heal her. Their elf ally, Puck, tells of the mystical land of Elfhelm, which is supposed to be a safe haven from the demons that ravage the lands. Tired and with only a vague hope, they struggle on to find a place to live—and they still need to find those responsible for the madness they are forced to endure. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Review:

Berserk is an amazing anime. Berserk 2nd is just as good as the first season in my opinion. I know that a lot of people will disagree with me about this but I really liked the fact that the second season was CGI. Let me explain why. Using CGI technology made the fights look more epic and the overall of the anime was more gory. There were fight scene in the anime that simply couldn’t be done with 2D art. They did push the anime to a new level. The new characters were very interesting. The story was very Dark. I really wanted to see more. The only downside is that the anime was too short.

Overall Rate: 9/10
