Apparently for real this time.

The wraparound jacket band on the 35th volume of Kentarou Miura's Berserk fantasy manga is announcing this month that a new anime project is launching. More information will be provided in Hakusensha's Young Animal magazine and the affiliated Young Animal Web site.

Updates:

Teaser commercials (with animation): http://www.younganimal.com/berserk/cm/index.html
Commercial #1 (Griffith)
Commercial #2 (Zodd)
Commercial #3 (Casca)
Commercial #4 (Compilation of 1-3)
Commercial #5 (Skullknight)

Berserk_project twitter (Japanese): http://twitter.com/berserk_project

A series of films is currently being released, beginning with Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler on February 4, 2012, as part of a new effort to adapt the entire manga series.

Ehh, saw this on another forum... hope this is not old. It's the first 10 minutes.

Talk about zero details available.

"For real this time. We promise."

Bee Train.

In reality, I'm sure it will be some competent studio (perhaps Madhouse?).

The details in the OP are all the details available.

In other words "something exists".

Man i want to see him moving on from the first anime so bad. It was like a giant tease learning the whole backstory, and that ending just got so awesome.
Then, they just end it like that.

Can't wait.

Berserk was the first anime that got me into it. Maybe the new one can get me back into anime.

I hope this is a continuation from the last series, as I have watched that damn thing so many times. :lol

(As well as reading the manga ofc)

This shit blew my mind when I read it this morning. Here's hoping for a Hellsing Ultimate OVA style release.
That would be awesome if not for the fact that Hellsing Ultimate episode releases are like 6 months or something from one another :l

Seriously, I'm hyped for this and Beck live action. It's gonna be a long wait :l

If they trimmed some of it down for the anime, it would be a lot better.

I don't have much problem with that arc, but overall there's plenty of meandering that can be trimmed.

They did it in the original anime, and that worked out pretty well.

i wouldn't disagree. i'd assume the content
especially that nutso sex-cult shit
will be smoothed over regardless of the release format.

Trim parts, and then trim even more as they cut out the violent and over the top content!
