Berserk Anime 2016 Staff and Voice Actors Revealed

This month's issue of Hakusensha's Young Animal didn't come out with a new chapter of Berserk, but instead it released a list of the upcoming Berserk anime's cast, production staff, and again, advertising its July 2016 premiere.

The Berserk 2016 Japanese voice cast is as follows:

Hiroaki Iwanaga as Guts
Kaoru Mizuhara as Puck
Yōko Hikasa as Farnese
Kazuyuki Okitsu as Serpico
Hiro Shimono as Isidro
Hiroki Yasumoto as Azan
Toa Yukinari as Casca
Takahiro Sakurai as Griffith
Akio Ohtsuka as Skull Knight
Unshou Ishizuka as Narrator

The voice actors of Guts, Casca, Griffith, and the Skull Knight in the previous Berserk movies are reprising their roles while the others are new additions to the Berserk series. The cast of characters is telling about how far into the series the anime may go, but it should be noted that they strategically left villains off the list of voice actors. Perhaps they have not found anyone to fill the roles yet, but also they could be avoiding truly detailing how far into the manga the series will venture this time.

As for the staff, Shin Itagaki (Basquash!, Teekyuu) will be adding another directing credit under his belt while Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass) will be overseeing the script alongside Takashi Yamashita (Cencoroll).

Hisashi Abe (Chobits, Gunslinger Girl) is designing the characters.

LINDEN Films is being credited for production, with GEMBA and Millepensee sharing credit for animation production. It is speculated, due to their previous works, GEMBA will be handling the CGI while Millepensee will do in-between animation. 

Shiro Sagisu, who previously did the music for the Berserk movies, will be returning to do the music. However, Susumu Hirasawa will also be returning briefly to compose the intro song. For this series, the intro already has a title, "Hai yo" (Ash).
