EDITOR'S OPINIONGuts the hero of the incredibly dark and violent medieval fantasy that is Berserk. Though Berserk had a rather unique history of Anime getting a US release, because believe it or not one of the games based on it got released before the English dub of the Anime came about.
Guts' English Voice Acting debut was in the English release of the Sega Dreamcast game Sword of the Berserk Gut's Rage released in the year 2000. Guts was surprisingly voiced by VA Michael Bell.
At first I felt a little uneasy since out of all the known North America animation male VA's to voice Guts I admit Michael Bell was not exactly high on the list who I can picture as him. However I was pleasantly surprised with Michael Bell's handiwork, its not perfect but it was a lot more fitting than I thought it would be.
Two years after that game the Berserk anime had an English release and he is voiced by Marc Diraison. Marc Diraison was quite perfect in the role and it is one of his best performances for sure IMO.
Both are good, but while Michael Bell was a pleasant surprise Marc Diraison was exceptional in this role.
