Berserk: Golden Age Arc Blu-Ray Preorders Are Steeply Discounted At Amazon

Berserk's cinematic remake trilogy is getting collected into a new Blu-ray release on August 27.


It's been a nice year for fans of Berserk. The original 1997 anime adaptation released on Blu-ray earlier this year, and soon it'll be joined by another new Blu-ray release. Berserk: The Golden Age Arc Memorial Edition, a Blu-ray collection of the 2012-2013 films, is set to launch on August 27. It's available to preorder now at Amazon and Crunchyroll Store, and you can save on your preorder at either retailer. At the moment, you can save over 20% on your preorder at Amazon. Crunchyroll's price is a couple bucks cheaper, but keep in mind you'll have to pay for shipping, whereas you can get free shipping at Amazon. Essentially, Amazon has the better deal right now.

Of course, if you're a firm believer in Berserk 1997, you can get the show in its best format right now at Amazon. The Blu-ray release has regularly sold out several times since its initial release in March, but fresh stock of the 25-episode series is available again at Amazon and Crunchyroll:

Finally, you can never go wrong with the manga. The late Kentaro Miura's dark fantasy series has been collected in multiple different formats over the years, but the beautifully oversized hardcover volumes are the best of the lot.
