Season 1 of Berserk’s 2016 adaptation concludes today with the announcement that Season 2 is coming in Spring, 2017, Crunchyroll reports.
It is a rule of the internet that, when a fandom is taken too seriously, it will develop its own special brand of self-mockery. But how does that happen exactly?

In Berserk’s manga, TV series and full-length movies, the sword-wielding heroine Casca has traditionally been depicted with dark skin and short, black hair.

Over the past year, Berserk has returned to the limelight in a big way with a trilogy of movies based on the first arc of the popular manga.
