Berserk

10.00 (excellent) Berserk is one of the best mangas ever made and this for its numerous qualities.The 90's anime series were ok but not that great in comparison with the manga, too censored, incomplete and short.The art style wasn't as elegant as Miura's, Guts personality is slightly different in the anime..etc. But its soundtrack was awesome! fitting Berserk's world perfectly. The new series from 2016 are pretty criticized by the fans for its 3D animation and art style but it didn't bother me personally on the contrary, i think it's more beautiful and sophisticated than ever and most of all more faithful to Miura's art style (faces & addition of hatching), Guts personality and attitude are also closer to the manga version.To me the 3D video game like animation adds some dynamism and realism to the anime, the funniest thing is that i've imagined myself a Berserk anime using video game CG style graphics years ago when i played the PS2 Berserk game, at the end of that game it was possible to watch all cutscenes in a row giving us thus the impression to watch a full movie. I also liked the video game graphics which i've found to be the right style to represent the hardcore Berserk universe. The 2016 series are also a good version you can say it's a sort of animated manga..But unfortunately the problem still the same in all versions. The story is not totally covered and it's even worse than in the other previous adaptations, it only shows some chapters from the manga in an abridged manner (many scenes were skipped), not mentioning the modification of certain sequences :/ Berserk has a long and dark story which makes it difficult to adapt faithfully. If you like Berserk then you must read the manga first otherwise you cannot understand the story. But as a big fan i was nevertheless glad to see the adaptation of certain chapters like those with Mozgus. It's just a detail but Guts gigantic sword really makes a cool sound in the 2016 anime Lol.

Berserk is a dark fantasy, which means Evil here is the supreme force that rules the universe, it is not about Good versus Evil but lesser Evil vs greater Evil, dark fantasy genre are supposed to be closer to reality. What i like about Berserk is it dares to describe the darkest aspects of life and dark human instincts in a raw blunt manner. It also satirize almost everything and everyone Lol.

Its main protagonist Guts is not your typical hero, he's not specially altruistic or sociable, just a dude cursed by a terrible fate which he tries to defy insolently each time. He's quite nihilistic and "bohemian" ..I like him for that Lol.
Guts tries often to hide his sensitivity behind a wall of cynicism which helps him to confront a dark reality, despite that he can be human from time to time especially with people whom he likes. Guts is not perfect he can show some ferocity when someone stands in his way. Also His obsession with Casca and Griffith fuels constantly his rage Lol.
Guts is frequently nicknamed bakemono (monster) by his adversaries because of his dark appearance and attitude (it is also a nod to the samurai movies in which characters like Zatoichi and Tange Sazen are sometimes called monsters).
In the other hand his archenemy Griffith is often seen as an "angel" due to his angelic appearance and gentle manners,it is pretty unusual in mangas that the hero has a darker looks than the antagonist and i think it's a smart way to say that true darkness is something that you can't easily notice.

If you like antiheroes and dark fantasy genre this anime is made for you.

10.00 (excellent) I'm not especially fond of mecha anime, but i like G00 a lot for being one of the few non manichean animes i've ever watched. which makes it really appealing to me is the accurate description of the complex reality behind conflicts that we are witnessing today despite the series being set in a sci-fi world. the story it isn't just about terrorism but also about imperialism, political struggles and machinations. it is also very rare to have a middle eastern character as the main hero of an anime, and i appreciate the efforts made by the makers of G00 to understand the feelings and Weltanschauung of the people in this part of the world. My favorite characters are Soran Ibrahim and Marina Ismail Ofc, without those two G00 would have been an ordinary Gundam anime, but the others characters are well made as well: Hallelujah, Al Saachez, Goodman ..etc. I'll start with Marina which is an interesting character despite being criticized by most fans as being a foolish dreamer or incompetent. In S1 she was young and unexperienced but in S2 she improved herself and became skillful, for me she's the real heroine of the story like a sort of Gandhi or MLK. Her people mistrust her for being too progressive which makes her a tragic figure. Soran is the complementary character tragic as well but more skeptical who doesn't believe in peace talks he plays the role of a Malcolm Little sort of.. Lol. Being manipulated as a kid and raised to be a killing machine Soran shows great mental strength and managed to change through questioning the things he've been told since childhood.That makes the character really admirable to me. his laconic stoical attitude confers the character a certain charisma and charm. The two are seen as being a couple but i think its not the case they have a deeper relation than a mere romance and are tied by common tragic destiny.sort of sister souls who complete each other. I also admire Neil Dylandy and his brother which are remarkable characters for their empathy and generosity. Ali Al Saachez is the character i hate the most beside Goodman (the imperialist dude who's responsible for the destruction and destabilization in the ME,many innocent civilians were killed according to the story) .The A-Laws in which the self righteous Goodman (well chosen name pretty ironic) serve as general has also hired the same criminals like Al Saachez which it's supposed to "fight". Ali's opportunism and lack of scruples irritates me,the character is really well made and accurately realistic,unfortunately the world is full of guys like him,zealots that use religion to destroy their own people.
G00 is a pretty serious anime but there are some scenes which can make you smile, i liked that one which it shows Louise being angry at Setsuna,the contrast between his tough life and his friends comfortable life is pretty funny to watch Lol.

Personally i liked the french dub better than the original because of Setsuna's voice. In the french version his voice is more masculine and introvert which fits more the character's personality. The ost is really good. Daybreak's bell is one of the best anime openings in my opinion fitting the tragic tone of the subject and the singing has a Ville Valo feel which i really appreciate ^^ The song tomorrow holds a special place in my heart as well.
If you are fond of complex fictional political plotline a la Mgs and you are looking for an anime in the same vein G00 is a good choice.
