A sudden 3D art post on Instagram by user @gutscg blew up claiming “a Berserk short film by Netflix” will be releasing this autumn. What people failed to notice was that the post concludes with a remark- “This is a joke.”
The news about Berserk film went viral within a short time without fans realizing the credibility of the post. It spread like wild-fire in both Instagram and Twitter. However, Netflix has not announced any such news.
The artist has a lot of 3D fan artworks and animations based on Berserk on his Instagram page. Yet the fans went berserk over this false news but finally, have realized that they were click baited.
The popular manga “Berserk” has a twenty-five-episode anime television series covering the series’ Golden Age arc by Oriental Light and Magic. It aired from October 1997 to March 1998. A trilogy of films, Berserk: The Golden Age Arc, also aired at the beginning of 2012. A second anime television adaptation was broadcast in 2016 and 2017 for a total of twenty-four episodes. No further announcement for a new adaptation of the series is available so far.
