It’s movie day here at The Nihon Review! First up, Shadowmage watched the recently released Berserk Golden Age Arc I: Egg of the Supreme Ruler. The movie excises a bit more of the manga than it should, and there’s some jarring CG, but the strength of Berserk‘s story persists despite that. Not the worst way to check it out if you don’t have time for the manga or the original TV series. And Kaikyaku adds another notch to her Studio Ghibli belt with Pom Poko, which is more complex than expected but never gets too serious.
