J2d, a member of the video game-centric forum NeoGAF, seems to have insider information regarding a sequel to the Berserk anime.
Apparently, he learned from an old friend (who now works for the animation company, Studio 4°C) that a new Berserk anime is in production, and was even lucky enough to get a glimpse at some of the footage.
Now, due to a lapse in judgment (he was drunk, apparently), J2d's leaked a few shots of the trailer onto NeoGAF, seemingly confirming the project’s existence. He took them down soon after, but by then it was too late. They had already begun to spread like wildfire.
If you want to see them (and trust me, you have to see them--they're beautiful), they're up on 4chan right now. I would post them here, but I don't want to be responsible for spreading them around.
Edit: Oh, what the hell! Here they are:

This is...wow. The animation looks great.
I. Can't. Effing. wait.
ABOUT TIME! Though I think I only watched the series last year...
Is this being done by Studio 4ºC or by Oriental Lights & Magic (original series)?
Rumor has it that it's being done by Studio 4ºC, but nothing's certain, of course.
awesome. bout time. Soon Naruto, FMA, Gantz, Bleach, DGM etc. will end. Berserk, OP, and HNI may be the last series I read. Good to see theyre all going strong on the anime end too.
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG, yesssssss oh oh oh yesss this is awesome!!!!!! someone freeze me and unfreeze me when they have the eps showing!
ps caska reminds me of a bird in that pic
dude, if i were to believe you and then get trolled, i`d kill myself... probably... is this for real??
that`s epic news, if this is actually more than just a rumor! i still prefer manga over anime, but this, i really wanna see it, to see if they respect Miura`s scenario down to the tiniest detail... and it`d be epic to see your favourite series animated... but i still wonder if they`d be on par with Kentaro`s heavenly art...
The animation style reminds me of Detroit Metal City (DMC which was also done by Studio 4ºC) and Nabari no Ou. Both had a stylized, watercoloured look.
YES!!!! I'm so happy right now I might as well be a fan girl lol
@demoleon this is the best piece of news that i have heard in a long time man cant wait for the anime i hope they start from the beginning and looking at the pictures it looks like their are not going to soften the gore and blood details which is good cause the anime wont be epic without it
Thanks for posting, Demoleon.
So, a new anime is in the works, eh? I have to say, the visuals pretty underwhelming, considering the source material. Not a fan of the overly polished look, myself (way too heavy on the CG), and it poorly represents Miura's style, in my opinion. Although, it seems just about everyone here would disagree.
Still, I have to doubt these images are even genuine, seeing as there's been no indication whatsoever of a new series outside of the images themselves. I'll also point out that the NeoGAF thread linked by the OP was started over a year ago, and still, no official announcement or confirmation of any kind.
but nonetheless just the thought of watching berserk is rocking hopefully they will address this issue
