Normally don't post about anime stuff, but as I recall we have a few fans of the original series and manga here.
It's go time for a new one!
The story will follow Guts as the "Black Swordsman", an appearance which was briefly glimpsed in the first episode of the 1997 television series and briefly seen in the final scene of Golden Age Arc films.
Guts was once a wandering mercenary taken in by the mercenary group known as the Band of the Hawk (??? Taka no Dan?) and fought alongside them before their leader Griffith sacrificed his followers to become one of the God Hand to fulfill his dream of a kingdom of his own. Only Guts and his lover Casca, who lost her sanity from the horrors she saw and endured, escaped the "Eclipse" ritual though both are branded with marks that attract fell entities like restless spirits to them. Leaving Casca in the care of the blacksmith Godo and Rickert, the only member of the Hawks not sacrificed, Guts began to hunt down the God Hand's Apostles to find and kill Griffith. Years passed, and Guts is joined in his hunt by the elf Puck as events are starting to unfold.
Alternative summary: Min/max barbarian kills things. The end.

Seen the original. Certainly not for kids and a good example of dark fantasy done properly.
Gona watch! :mrgreen:
