Original story (published on December 02, 2022) follows:

Berserk is one of the most iconic names in the manga industry. The Guts and Griffith story has been captivating many fans for more than two decades.

Berserk manga has also had some anime adaptations. Many fans consider the 1997 Berserk anime to be its best adaptation, surpassing other more modern animations.

Netflix, one of the most popular streaming services, recently licensed Berserk 1997 (among other anime) to enhance its content catalog. Many fans have been patiently waiting for the availability on the platform.


However, although the announced date has arrived, reports reveal that the expected Berserk 1997 is still not available on Netflix in multiple regions.

Berserk 1997 still not streaming or available on Netflix

Netflix caught the attention of many by confirming the agreement for the transmission of Berserk 1997. Sadly, US subscribers are reporting that the anime is not yet available in the catalog.

December 1 was the set date for the anime’s official arrival on Netflix. However, for some unknown reason, Netflix subscribers in the US market still can’t enjoy the show.

It’s December 1st where’s the Netflix??? Am I the only one who noticed that berserk isn’t on Netflix anymore and the 1997 hasn’t been added ?????

The United States is not the only region affected by the problem. Netflix users in the UK are reporting that the anime is also not available to them yet.

Nope, just checked. Another L for UK streaming let’s go

Nope. Just checked and it’s not there. Must be almost everywhere else in the world.

Meanwhile, in regions like Portugal (and others) Netflix subscribers can already enjoy Berserk 1997.

No official word, but there is a workaround

There is still no official word on this situation from the Netflix team. In the meantime, subscribers can bypass geo-restrictions and watch the show on Netflix using a VPN:

We will update this story as events unfold.

Update 1 (December 5, 2022)

10:00 am (IST): Apparently, Berserk 1997 won’t be available on Netflix in some regions including the US, UK, and Canada. However, Netflix is yet to provide a reason for the same.

Update 2 (December 6, 2022)

10:45 am (IST): A user has alleged that they reached out to Netflix over the availability of Berserk 1997 and the support told them that they will forward the request to make it available.

That means the anime isn’t going to be available anytime soon on Netflix in the US and some other countries.

@netflix sat there and made #Berserk available to any country that wasn’t the US. I just got off the phone with customer service and they said they would forward a request to make it available. 😪 (Source)
