If you are unfamiliar with the storyline, Crunchyroll describes Berserk below:
"Spurred by the flame raging in his heart, the Black Swordsman Guts continues his seemingly endless quest for revenge. Standing in his path are heinous outlaws, delusional evil spirits, and a devout child of god.Even as it chips away at his life, Guts continues to fight his enemies, who wield repulsive and inhuman power, with nary but his body and sword—his strength as a human. What lies at the end of his travels? The answer is shrouded in the "night." Strain your eyes and stare into the dark!"
