With the depressing conclusion of the Golden Age Arc, the series returns to the present day to show the deep-rooted effects of those events on Guts and the world at large. Guts is still pursing revenge against the Apostles with Puck in tow, but he has attracted the attention of a KnightTemplar named Farnese who is [[InspectorJavert determined to arrest him]] on behalf of the Church. Meanwhile, the God Hand is stirring up trouble all across the world. Pestilence and foreign invasion threaten the people of Midland, who cry out for a savior. It may be that the newly empowered Griffith intends to step in to fill this gap and work his nefarious designs. The biggest development by far, however, concerns Guts. Finding that his solitary vendetta has gotten him nowhere, Guts discovers that he has [[MyGreatestSecondChance one last chance]] to save from the ashes something--someone--that he thought he'd lost forever. But this will be the most arduous journey yet, and he will need new friends and allies if he hopes to succeed. And can he really devote himself to this cause, if it means giving up the revenge that was the only thing motivating him for so long?

''Berserk'' (''Beruseruku'') is an ongoing {{seinen}} manga series by Creator/KentaroMiura set in a grim MedievalEuropeanFantasy world. Beginning the action InMediasRes with the first three volumes establishing Guts, the setting, and the Godhand, the story then goes into a ''twelve-volumes-long'' flashback called the Golden Age arc which explains HowWeGotHere and reveals Guts' [[DarkAndTroubledPast painful backstory]]. Guts survives an abuse-filled childhood and lives as a lone sell-sword, until he meets the charismatic mercenary leader Griffith and his undefeated [[TrueCompanions Band of the Hawk]]. Griffith is a man with a dream of winning his own kingdom despite his common origins, and possesses an egg-shaped artifact called the [[ArtifactOfDoom crimson behelit]], which he was told will grant its owner the world in exchange for his flesh and blood. Inducted into the Band by [[DefeatMeansFriendship losing to Griffith in a duel]], Guts finds himself for the first time surrounded by companions united by Griffith's dream and loyalty to each other, and grows to view Griffith with both friendship and admiration. By turning the tide of a hundred year war in favor of the Kingdom of Midland they become the most celebrated force in the land, but a falling out between Guts and Griffith plunges the latter into despair, setting off a chain of events that ultimately brings their friendship and the Band of the Hawk to a disastrous end.

The first adaptation of Berserk was a twenty-five episode anime titled ''Kenpuu Denki Berserk'' (''Sword Wind Chronicle Berserk'') by [[OLMIncorporated Oriental Light and Magic]] that covered the Golden Age Arc and aired from October 7, 1997 to March 31, 1998. It is well-regarded in the fandom as being quite faithful to the manga, offering a rich exploration of its characters, and for having a memorable soundtrack by Music/SusumuHirasawa. Viewers should be warned that it is also known for having a GainaxEnding that abruptly stops at the single most depressing point in the manga thus far while omitting any explanation of what happens next, but it is a good entry point to the series for newcomers who are not used to reading manga. An HD remaster of the complete 1997 anime will be available in April 2016 as part of a [[LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition BluRay box set]] costing 18,000 yen, or about USD$148.

This approach admittedly introduces an AdaptationInducedPlotHole concerning how Guts is still alive in TheStinger when he girds on the Dragon Slayer and embarks on the RoaringRampageOfRevenge depicted in the first episode, and avoids dealing with some important things that happen in the immediate aftermath. Still, it is a great way for newcomers who are not used to reading manga. manga to get hooked on the series, and the cliffhanger ending ensures that once invested in the story and characters, one will feel compelled to pick up the manga and read up on the rest.
