Berserk 324 - Merrow

From where we left off last chapter, Isma flops on deck with Ishidoro, as well as a few other "merrows" (mermaids, pretty much). Isma tries to remember her true name, but the elfs warn her against speaking it. As apparently, magical creatures, or at least elves and mermaids, have true names but if they tell them to people the people will have complete control over them.

Berserk 323 - Call of the Deep

Finally, a chapter that can be considered in the "somewhat interesting" category. As you remember from 322, the Sea God burst through a mountain and is now absorbing the demons Pirates, or eating them, frankly I don't care which as long as I never seen them again.

Ao no Exorcist

Rin and Yukio
 I have been looking to find some new anime/manga to follow and I decided to give this series a try. A short description is that Rin Okumura is the the bastard son of satan, this series takes place in a world were demons exist. The demons dwell on another plane of existence called Gehenna (a.k.a Hell) and are constantly trying to come into the mortal plane. Priest or Exorcist as they are called in this series work to repel the forces of Satan, by use of swords, gun, and scriptures from different religions (mostly Christianity). At the beginning of the series he lives with his "father" Shiro Fujimoto, and his twin brother Yukio in a missionary that Shiro runs.
A series of events unfolds and causes Rin's powers awaken and the story goes from there.

Since I don't want to spoil to much ill sum it up like this. If you like demons, and the eternal struggle between good and evil, and don't mind a slightly religion spin on it you will most likely enjoy it.

If any of our readers have suggestions are decent series I could pick up that would be awesome.

Berserk Film Golden Arc to be split into THREE movies

Two movies for the Golden Arc was bad enough, but THREE. THREE MOVIES!? Really? It doesn't really need three. We've seen most of it before.

Yeah, it'll have three movies.

Muira also introduced Clara de Porras, who will kind of be the face for the movie series. I have two questions for him about that. What's with the Spanish, are you Tite Kubo now? and What the hell does she have to do with Berserk?

New Berserk Film's Title to be Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago

Yeah, the 1st Berserk film's title is Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago (Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler). I think we all knew it'd be a Golden Age movie, but I also think deep down all of us really, really wanted it to be something we haven't seen animated before.


Berserk Ōgon Jidai-Hen I: Haō no Tamago (Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler) coming at you January 2012.

Berserk Film Release Date: "Next January"

 Apparently there's been some leakage in Japan, of the not radioactive kind (Too soon?). The July 8th announcement was indeed a release date, according to ANN anyway. The Berserk film is set to run in Japan "next January".

Now, party people. Hickshooter and myself believe this is January 2012, but the way it's worded sounds like January 2013. Am I wrong to assume "next" January means "not this one, but the next one"? I don't know, January 2012 is a much pleasanter date, so let's go with that one.

The movie will be direct by Toshiyuki Kubooka, who has little experience directing and anime aside from one episode of Batman: Goutham Knight, buuuut did do the character designs for IDOLM@STER. I sense a connection, lol. If you don't know, Kentaro Muira is rumored to love IDOLM@STER, lol.

Also, the website for the movie will be released on July 15th, so hope for an English version and not some painful to translate with a translator Flash version.

Also, also, they are releasing a new figure in honor of the movie at some point this summer.
