The Opening to the 1997 Berserk Anime is Somehow a Garage Rock Banger

Why didn’t anybody tell me about this earlier?

Seriously, after marathoning all 347 currently available chapters of Berserk in the fall I was shocked to find myself playing air guitar while listening to the 1997 anime adaptation’s opening.

Berserk is one of the most bleak and harrowing reads in all of manga, yet it has one hell of an upbeat garage J-rock banger for an opening? Not gonna pretend this makes sense, but you won’t see me complaining. The closer an anime’s opening theme is to 90’s indie rock the better.

These days Berserk is as cursed as Guts, but at least we can always put our grasses on.
