The story follows Guts, the Black Swordsman, a traveling mercenary who takes on any job that offers him more bucks. However, Guts’ life changes when he encounters the leader of the Band of the Falcon, Griffith. Despite his strength, Guts gets defeated by Griffith and as a result of this lost duel, he is compelled to join Griffith’s army.

However, lurking behind Griffith’s angelic appearance are dangers that Guts could have never imagined. From witnessing the brutal assault/r*p* of his love interest Casca to losing an arm and an eye. He faces betrayals by the people he loves the most and even sacrifices his own life for Casca, doing everything in his power to defeat the white-haired demon, Griffith.
