Miura's Berserk films, and Game of Thrones

Andrew Osmond goes mad for Berserk
Christmas Eve sees the release of the first of a spectacular new film trilogy based on Berserk, the brutal fantasy manga epic by Kentarou Miura. The films, starting with Berserk Movie 1: The Egg of the King, retell the story from the beginning. It’s primarily the saga of a warrior, Guts – and one might add, of guts, usually sliding off Guts’ mighty sword. To say that Guts kills things – human, animal, monster – is like saying that people breathe air. It’s Guts’s job; it’s what he’s good at; and he’s in a world where there’s no shortage of things to slay.

Berserk 2: The Battle for Doldrey

Andrew Osmond drives his enemies before him
Berserk Movie 2: Battle for Doldrey, out next week as a Blu-ray and a DVD, steps into the challenging “middle part” slot of a fantasy film trilogy, previously filled by The Empire Strikes Back, The Two Towers and The Matrix Reloaded.

Berserk Movie 3: The Advent

Anime's answer to the Red Wedding... but what was the question...?
The BBFC, which rated the first two Berserk films '15,' rated the third part a hard "18," with "sexual violence, strong bloody violence and strong sex." Believe us, they’re not kidding.

FAIRY TAIL MUSIC: W-INDS

Tom Smith on the band behind Be As One
Unlike a number of the bands featured on the Manga UK blog, W-inds haven’t had much of a history with anime tie-ins despite their massive success. In fact, in 14 years they’ve only ever done two anime themes; their first in Akira Amano’s Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, and more recently with Hiro Mashima’s Fairy Tail, where their 29th single Be as One became its sixth ending.

Podcast: A Dingo Stole My Anime

Studio Ghibli, tattoo removal and the San Diego Comic Con in our 26th podcast
Jeremy Graves is joined by Jerome Mazandarani, Andrew Hewson and Jonathan Clements to discuss last week’s Studio Ghibli, the San Diego Comic Con, upcoming releases, and your questions from Twitter and Facebook. Includes an inadvisable impersonation of Meryl Streep, commentary track shenanigans, and Jerome’s skateboarding stunts.

The Yellow Peril

Jonathan Clements reviews a new account of Fu Manchu
The Yellow Peril: Dr Fu Manchu & The Rise of Chinaphobia (sic) is an enjoyably traditional work of gentlemanly erudition, with research in dusty archives accompanied by a slew of lunches with bigwigs and interviews with associates, as our polymath hero Sir Christopher Frayling examines the origins of the infamous mastermind from Sax Rohmer’s once-popular novels.

Unboxed: Magi the Labyrinth of Magic

Jeremy Graves rubs a DVD and makes three wishes
Magi the Labyrinth of Magic, part one, is available on UK DVD and Blu-ray from Monday 24th February.

Rocksmith's Japanese Stars

Tom Smith on the downloadable J-rock gods in Ubisoft’s game
As part of the DLC catalogue for Ubisoft's guitar ‘game’ are six of quite possibly the biggest names in rock from Japan, each covering a very different base.

Magi the Labyrinth of Magic

In search of the animated Arabian Nights
The literary history of the Arabian Nights that underlies Magi is fascinating. The one point that any Magi fan should know to sound erudite is that three of the show’s main characters, Aladdin, Alibaba and Sinbad, are named after famous Arabian Nights heroes. However, none of these heroes were actually in the original collection.
