Berserk: The Golden Age Arc – Memorial Edition is a TV cut of Studio 4°C’s Berserk: The Golden Age Arc films with new scenes included. The anime is based on the late Kentarou Miura’s manga Besrerk. The series is streaming on Crunchyroll and Hulu.

One of the most notable differences has been the inclusion of the popular Bonfire of Dreams scene from the manga.

What happens in the Bonfire of Dreams (Yume no Kagaribi) scene?

The scene takes place after Guts’ defeat of 100 men. While Casca is tending to his wounds and applying elf dust, Guts confides in her that while fighting 100 men may seem impressive that it’s nothing compared to how Griffith and Casca both fight for their dream. Guts says that all of the members of the Band of the Hawk have their own noble dreams that they are fighting for – except for him.

Guts tells Casca their dreams are like the bonfires that have been set up all around camp. He says the fires are easily blown out on their own, so they decide to join a bigger, more powerful fire in order not to go out – Griffith’s dream. Guts, however, feels that his fire, his dream, isn’t with the Hawks. Casca realizes that Guts wants to leave the Hawks, and is immediately worried, but Guts assures her he will only leave after they’ve won their current campaign.

Their conversation is interrupted by Rickert and Pippin, who informs them that Griffith has come after hearing that the two of them are alright. As soon as Casca is face to face with Griffith again she immediately apologizes for going into battle while she was feeling sick. Guts slaps Casca’s behind and tells her she’s being overdramatic.

Guts leaves with his comrades to go and drink and leaves Casca behind with Griffith. For once, Casca isn’t captivated by Griffith and her eyes are on Guts as he walks away and wonders if he will truly leave the Hawks.
