You May Never Want a Live-Action ‘Berserk’ Due to This Ad


You’ve never wanted a live-action Berserk adaptation before…and you still might not want it, depending on your view of this official commercial.

Yeah — this beauty aired to promote the manga’s 40th volume, which might be the last one for a while, depending on Kentarou Miura‘s hiatus length.

The ad features dry humor, which is in line with Miura’s sensibilities. We witness Guts battle poorly animated skulls before belting out a scream, embodying the franchise’s fanbase.

If you don’t know, singer Shigeru Matsuzaki portrays Guts, simply due to a visual pun. Matsuzaki is known as “The Black Singer” due to his tan, so it’s only natural that he would play “The Black Swordsman.” At least he has the pipes for the killer scream!

The good news is that Berserk is still selling like crazy! According to the commercial, nearly 40 million copies are in print worldwide. Fans sure do love seeing Guts suffer as he tries to take vengeance on Griffith.
