The first ten minutes Berserk: Golden Age I – The Egg of the Supreme King has been released to coincide its theatrical premiere yesterday.
This movie is the first of a trilogy of movies adapted from Kentarō Miura’s original manga and the opening ten minutes shows a siege scene (with some censoring) with the film’s main theme Aria, which was composed by electronic artist Hirasawa Susumu (Paprika, Paranoia Agent), playing out.
The video was originally posted on the Gyao website for a limited time. It was also region locked so only Japanese netizens could view it but an intrepid Beserk fan has posted it on YouTube so who knows how long this will last before Warner Bros. Japan swoops in.
The film is animated by Studio 4°C and directed by Toshiyuki Kubooka who has worked as animation director on notable titles like Gankutsuou, Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water, and the Working Through Pain Segment of Batman:Gotham Knight.
