Thanks to the generosity of premium patron Devin, this week we're taking a look at the first animated adaptation of Kentaro Miura's acclaimed dark fantasy manga, Berserk! Despite its slightly silly name, Berserk weaves a grim tale of destiny, betrayal, and revenge, and made its bleak, violent medieval backdrop a smash-hit with audiences nearly a decade before A Game of Thrones. On this episode, join us as we discuss the history of this Japanese comic series that spanned more than 30 years, its creator and his untimely death, and the 1997 anime series that attempted to rein in this astoundingly crafted story on a modest budget.
