I noticed quite a few new merchandises on Berserk ベルセルクrecently, thereafter search online to know that the anime had just celebrated its 20th anniversary with the roll out a few movies. It's seems like the movies were retelling the TV series consisting of 25 episodes, but some scenes nicely redrawn and better graphic. Then again, it's always intriguing to be hooked to those spectacular battle scenes set in medieval Europe and especially when Guts, the main character wielded his oversized board sword.
In my opinion, the initial part of the story was excellent when juvenile Guts joined the rogue army known as 'Hawk Band' with wave of difficult but successful battles glorifying the key characters. However the story kind of lost its focus when creatures from hell started appearing berserkly. The anime also ended abruptly with Hawk Leader 'Griffith, corrupted for more power, fallen from grace with betrayal. Maybe the author 'Kentarou Miura' wanted to channel fan to its manga for continuation... I’m not a fan of manga, so I didn't follow the story after the anime ended.
Now is a good time to re-watch those uncensored gruesome scenes, on my code 1 DVD box-set, which I had bought 4 years ago, on Amazon.com, dubbed in English. 6 discs collection with many special features.
