As part of the celebratory events surrounding the Berserk franchise this year, The Golden Age Arc anime film trilogy will get its first Japanese TV broadcast this year. The films will be recut under the title "Memorial Edition," though details on the recut version have not been confirmed at this time. A new poster and special video were released to announce the release.
The "Memorial Edition" version of The Golden Age Arc film trilogy is a part of a larger Berserk celebration, which includes a Kentaro Miura exhibition that is currently traveling around Japan, as well as the release of the first chapter of the series penned by Studio Gaga (Miura's team of assistants) under the watchful eye of a close friend of Miura's Kouji Mori after the passing of the manga creator last May.

The lone mercenary Guts travels a land where a century-old war is raging. His ferocity and skill in battle attract the attention of Griffith, the leader of a group of mercenaries called the Band of the Hawk. Guts becomes Griffith’s closest ally and confidant, but despite all their victories, Guts begins to question why he fights for another man’s dream of ruling his own kingdom. Unknown to Guts, Griffith’s unyielding ambition is about to bestow a horrible fate on them both.
