Kids say (1 ):

This dark fantasy series is known for its grim and mature themes and brutal fantasy world filled with monstrous and supernatural creatures. Berserk is a visceral series filled with graphic and intense violence, action, and thought-provoking storytelling that explores the human experience in a brutal and unforgiving world. Berserk's strange supernatural aspects and bizarre imagery also make it visually compelling as well. The extreme levels of violence and dark sexual themes definitely make it a choice for mature audiences.
