* ''{{Manga/Berserk}}'' opens with the Black Swordsman Arc (volumes 1-3), introducing main character Guts as a vicious NominalHero on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge against the five evil deities called the God Hand, as well as their monstrous servants, the Apostles. At this point Guts is missing his right eye and left hand, and carries the cursed Brand of Sacrifice on his neck, which every night summons evil spirits to devour him. At the end of the Black Swordsman Arc we learn that the God Hand includes Guts' ArchNemesis Griffith, who [[WeUsedToBeFriends used to be Guts' friend]]. Then the Golden Age Arc (volumes 3 to 14) goes back in time and shows us the epic tragedy of how the brotherhood they forged on the battlefield was torn apart by Griffith's betrayal. The anime ''Anime/Berserk1997'' follows the same progression by showing the Black Swordsman Arc in episode 1, and spending the rest of its 25 episodes on the Golden Age Arc.
