Even with all the hiatuses, Kentaro Miura’s Berserk manga has finally reached its milestone 40th volume. And to promote the new volume, as well as celebrate its release, they’re doing a live-action PV! But who is playing Guts? Well, it seems that they chose 68-year-old Japanese singer Shigeru Matsuzaki, known as Japan’s most tan celebrity.

It looks like they went all out with the commercial, with some big special effects and dramatic music. And aside from that, they also revealed an interview with the singer, as well as a behind-the-scenes video at how they shot the PV:
