Berserk is one of the most amazing anime in history. It’s not amazing because of it’s animation style and quality. Neither is it amazing because of the soundtracks. It’s a piece of art completely amazing just on the basis of its story line itself. Berserk is one of the anime who explore the depths of pain and tragedy and show how a tragic stories can be epic masterpieces.
Berserk follows the story of Guts. Guts is a man who has born countless sorrows and pain and survived through all of them. The story gives much emphasis on the pain that Guts had to face throughout his life. As a child he was brutally treated by his caretakers. His best friend turned into a demon. He was marked as demon food for entire life by his best friend. His best friend raped his girlfriend in front of him. From the beginning of his childhood, guts had to have a sword in his hand. So as he grew, he became very proficient with sword and the art of killing and came to be known as the Black Swordsman.
Guts was once a wandering mercenary taken in by the mercenary group known as the Band of the Hawk and he fought alongside them before their mutilated leader, Griffith, sacrificed his followers to become one of the God Hand and continue his dream of ruling a kingdom of his own. Only Guts and his lover Casca, who lost her sanity and memory from the horrors she saw and endured, escaped the “Eclipse” ritual, though they were branded with marks that attract evil, restless spirits and other similar entities. With Casca in the care of blacksmith Godo and his adopted daughter Erica as well as Rickert, the only member of the Hawks absent during the Eclipse, Guts set off to hunt down the God Hand’s Apostles to find and kill Griffith in a quest for vengeance. Years have passed, and Guts is joined in his hunt by an elf named Puck as events the God Hand have long waited for are beginning to unfold. (Source)
