So I finally got a hold of a copy. The second movie was definitely better than the first one, more action, the animation improved as well, the characters don't look as stiff as in the first one. There were a few minor scenes missing (such as Griffith getting rid of the queen and nobles who opposed him) but on the whole this is probably the best adaption of manga to anime that I can think of (where the anime is either just as good as or even surpasses the source material in many areas).

the only bad thing is, we have to wait for the fricken 3rd movie now, which is probably going to be another 6 months before it makes blueray, and it is going to be EPIC! The previews at the end made me go nuts. oh and we got a quick glimpse of Puck too! yea!

YES. I look forward to it. Hopefully we don't have the same plan.. I might have to start one soon.

Much much better than the first film. I'm totally fine with the CGI/battlefield armor this time around since it was handled really well, but I wish the faces were always done with traditional animation. I really don't think the trilogy is doing much for Griffith's character development. His ambition is just kind of left out because of the missing scenes. It's really more focused on Guts, but there's NO WAY any animated version of Berserk could surpass the Manga IMO.

so, 3rd movie is out, definitely well done but I was just a tad disappointed as it skipped out on a lot of cool scenes like the assassins that the king sends after them in the sewers as well as the monkey demon apostle and the fight between zodd and the skull knight. The original series skipped those as well, was really looking forward to those fights :(

that said the actual eclipse ceremony was really well done and the overall animation has improved again. Now we just need to wait another 6 months for the next movie, really want to see the black swordsman arc
