The February issue of Kadokawa Shoten’s Newtype magazine is announcing on Saturday that the previously revealed Berserk project will begin with a theatrical film that will open in 2011. According to Newtype, the 2011 film will be the first part of a project that will adapt the entire story from Kentarou Miura’s manga.
Interesting. The most important thing to take away from this announcement is that the new Berserk animation project intends to “adapt the entire story” of the manga. That’s awesome, ‘cept the manga is not finished, and who knows how much longer it will take til completion.
On the other hand, sounds like they plan on (re)covering the Black Swordsman and Golden Age arcs in this new project, so there is plenty of material to cover. But, the last thing we want in all of this is crap filler.
