The original The Golden Age movies aired around ten years ago, from 2012 to 2013. The “Memorial” part of the anime is not just to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the movies. It is also to honor the late Kentaro Miura, who is the creator of the Berserk manga. He passed away in 2021 from an acute aortic dissection.

Hiroaki Iwanaga, Takahiro Sakurai, Toa Yukinari, and Yuki Kaji will all reprise their roles as Guts, Griffith, Casca, and Judeau, respectively. The ending song will be “Wish” by Mika Nakashima. Nakashima has previously performed theme songs for Mobile Suit Gundam Seed and Darling in the FranXX.

The Golden Age covers the titular Golden Age arc from the Berserk manga. It focuses on lone mercenary Guts and his time in the Band of the Hawk. Griffith is the charismatic leader, and he becomes Guts’s friend. Guts works with them and starts to fall in love with fellow commander Casca. However, Griffith’s ambitions end up causing serious problems for them all.

Berserk: The Golden Age Memorial Edition will start airing on October 1, 2022 in Japan, and it will also be available on Crunchyroll.
