Kaze UK announced on Twitter and the news forum that they have licensed the Berserk movie for UK distribution with ambitious plans to give it a theatrical premiere.



Synopsis

The saga follows Guts a strong mercenary with a huge sword and little direction in life. All of that changes after he meets Griffith, leader of a group of mercenaries named Band of the Hawk. Guts decides to throw his lot in with them and finds himself developing a deep relationship with Griffith but also finds that Casca, a commander in the Band of the Hawk, is jealous that Griffith returns his feelings. The two find themselves swept along in Griffith’s rise to power.

The films form a trilogy of movies adapted from Kentarō Miura’s original manga and have been animated by Studio 4°C. They have been 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.

The first of the films was theatrically released in February in Japan with the second instalment opening in June.
