Berserk is one of the darkest anime franchises around. Following the brutal story of Guts and the Band of the Hawk, the world of anime tragically lost creator Kentaro Miura before the series came to an end. However, Miura's dear friends Kouji Mori and the artists at Studio Gaga are set to finish the manga and one cosplayer has managed to create a perfect rendition of the black swordsman who has become wildly popular within the medium of anime.
Before Miura's passing, Guts and Casca were encountering the Moonlight Boy in the magical land known as Elfhelm, with this locale chock full of elves, fairies, and a variety of other magical beings that were far from the likes of the demons known as the Apostles. Revealed to be none other than the villainous Griffith, the new writer and artists on the series have documented the fallout of the White Hawk unleashing his armies on the supernatural land as Guts finds himself unable to save Casca as she is kidnapped by the latest member of the Godhand. Needless to say, things continue to get darker in the world that sprung from the mind of Kentaro Miura.
Instagram Cosplayer Taryn took the opportunity to recreate the Black Swordsman in the real world, giving Guts his trusty Dragon Slayer while also saddling him with one of the behelits, the object that was created by the Godhand to choose their demonic Apostles along with future members of their group:
A new Berserk anime has yet to be announced following the 2016 anime series which has two seasons to its name. Luckily, the story of the Band of the Hawk is still returning to the small screen, as the trilogy of Berserk movies is being transformed into a television series dubbed the Berserk Memorial Edition. While the footage might not be completely new, the Memorial Edition will take the opportunity to release a deleted scene that no viewer had seen before.
What do you think of this new take on Guts the Black Swordsman? Do you think that the protagonist of Berserk will actually manage to defeat Griffith and the Godhand before the series comes to an end?
