Saw the first couple of Berserk movies at Scotland Loves anime a couple of months back. I enjoyed them, but the hybrid 2D/3D animation has been very divisive. As you might expect, a lot of the character development's been left out too, so it might not be the best introduction for anyone not already familiar with the story.
Hum. If it wasn't for just that one dodgy-looking knight on the battlements, I wouldn't have said the CG was too obvious at all... What's it like for the rest of the actual movies, through? Noticable?
I think it kinda moves in and out. Sometimes you'd forget there was CG involved, but every now and again you'd get a little tick that reminds you. The battle scenes are undeniably impressive though. It's unlikely they'd have got anywhere near the same scale in 2D without a considerably larger budget.
Anyway, the stream option is still up. There is only a slight problem with the second movie because it come with fixed japanese subtitles.
