    "The human whose name is written in this note[book] shall die." These are the first words read in the Death Note by Light Yagami, a straight-A student who develops a god complex when he finds a notebook, dropped by shinigami Ryuk, that has the power to kill anyone whose name is written down in it. However, matters get out of hand when the Japanese Police Force tries to solve the case of the mysterious upsurge in criminal deaths alongside master detective L. It's a battle of wits in this anime based on the popular manga by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata.

    In this world, is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcendental entity or law? Is it like the hand of God hovering above? At least it is true, that man has no control, even over his own will. These spoken words at the beginning of each episode refer to the primary theme of Berserk: Every human is controlled by fate. We are introduced to the main character, Guts(The Black Swordsman), in the first episode. He is a tall man who is indelibly marked with the Brand on his neck. This horrible symbol draws all of demonkind to him. Guts wields a huge sword, throwing knives, an arm cannon, and a repeating crossbow. If one were to look at him, they could tell he's been through a lot. Guts has a prosthetic left arm and is also missing his right eye; in addition to the countless scars on his body. What has happened to this man? Placed in a medieval setting, Berserk tells the story of a younger Guts and the charismatic Griffith. A 100 year war rages between the kingdom of Midland and the empire of Chuder. Among the many armies, there is one group which shines above the rest: The Band of the Hawk. This elite mercenary group on the side of Midland is known as "death on the battlefield." Griffith, the leader of this group, is pursuing his dream and nothing will come in his way, especially with Guts at his side. As soon as they meet, the wheels of fate are set in motion and nothing will ever be the same. This anime is an adaptation of the ongoing manga masterpiece created by Kentarou Miura.moreless
