The artist wrote in the description that he had to take special permission first to finally be able to share the artwork, and how there is going to be a short Berserk film released in the Autumn of 2021, sadly, this was not true at all as the poster himself mentions in the end of the caption, “This is a joke.”

Past Adaptations Of Berserk

If the live action was to happen in reality, it still would not have been the first-ever adaptation of the series. In fact, there have been several animated releases to date that you can opt to watch instead.

The first one is Berserk, 1997. This anime was produced by Oriental Light and Magic and was directed by Naohito Takahashi. This anime covered the Golden Age arc of the manga and was praised for its animation, music, and story. It is considered by many fans to be one of the best anime adaptations of all time.

The next anime adaptation aired from 2012 to 2013. The Berserk: The Golden Age Arc was produced by Studio GAGA. It was released in three parts, each of which covered a different story arc from the Golden Age arc of the manga. The trilogy was loved for its animation and action sequences but was also criticized for its pacing and some of the changes it made to the source material.

The death of the author of the series, Kentaro Miura, left fans hanging and wanting more.
