October is not only spooky month, but it’s also the 25th anniversary of the very first Berserk anime adaptation! So what better time to discuss this dark fantasy horror series with my good friend and huge Berserk fan, Mayra, who you might remember from my episode on the oral history of anime penpaling! For the first part of the episode, we go over the history of Berserk, some of it’s main characters, celebrating Kentaro Miura’s original manga, and why it’s such a notable & important work. Then the second half is Spoiler Talk, for all of you who’re already familiar with the series! Please note that since Berserk IS a dark fantasy that contains a LOT of heavy topics, we do discuss things like dealing with trauma, etc. in the Spoiler half of the podcast.
