Very unique and fan-loved Light Novels end up getting their own Manga and/or Anime adaptations. That brings up the topic of this blog, the series known as Berserk of Gluttony. The anime community is open to the numerous forms in which a series may appear before them. Aside from just the mainstream Anime or Manga formats, another highly appreciated format is the Light Novel format. It can land up in the category of best anime.
Many of us have enjoyed these series, mostly as anime, and perhaps at some point tried to find the manga versions of these, only to realize the beauty of Light Novels. Some very well known Light Novels are from the series like No Game No Life, Sword Art Online, Fate/Stay Night, Log Horizon, Re: Zero, That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime, Overlord, Konosuba, Bungou Stray Dogs, and last but not least, the Monogatari series.
Falling under the solid genre of Dark Fantasy, if you enjoyed series like FullMetal Alchemist and Death Note, Berserk of Gluttony just might be your next best cup of tea. We follow the story of protagonist Fate Barbatos, who is both Holy Knight possessing the “Gluttony” skill. This unique skill is a Mortal Sin skill that consumes the soul of its victims, thereby stealing their skills and stats.
As one would expect, the victim will die by the end. But with every great power, there is usually a negative side effect that comes with it. In this scenario, it is an uncontrollable hunger that the user suffers from. So what do you do when you are hungry? Simple, eat. In Fate’s case, this means to keep devouring Souls.
If we as anime fans follow the drill, we already know that powers like this attract a negative social backlash. But Berserk of Gluttony is set for a great story! Fate and others around him originally deemed his Gluttony skill useless and thought all it was good for was to keep him under constant hunger.
While working as a Gatekeeper after being helped by the Vlerick Family in the royal capital, he comes to realize the full potential of his ability. This was only the beginning as the true overwhelming power of his unique ability allowed him to breakthrough levels itself, striking terror into the souls of those who may harm his beloved.
Now, Fate may look like your generic shounen anime protagonist, but with some unique twists, the remaining cast of characters follow suit. But before judging a book by its cover, it’s already apparent that this series is set to be one of the best, if not the best anime out there. The setting in a medieval-style world is ever-expanding, a beautiful backdrop, an interesting plot, skills which we cannot fathom the full extent of, character development.
It has an engaging cast of characters, stunning anime art style, character designs; and so much more are set in place to give readers the ride of their life! Now, the question, Is this really the Best Anime?
Can Berserk of Gluttony dethrone all Light Novels for the Title of Best Anime?
Berserk of Gluttony just might be the series to dethrone all its predecessor Light Novels for the title of best Anime ever! So get on the bandwagon for this thrilling series, no matter which format you choose!
