Dude please just read the manga or watch the 97 anime, it's insane how much better those are.
I'm begging you here I dont want this to be peoples first introduction to berserk, hell even the movies are a better introduction
Japan reacts to the internet in the late '90s. A series made with the intent that round-eyed gaijin devils would not comprehend it -- but it turns out that millennial angst and the crazy things folks did online were fairly universal.
Historically, the naked body is not considered to be attractive in Japanese culture. The classic Heian era (11th century) novel The Tale of Genji illustrates how people wore layers and layers of clothes (women wore 12 layers), and had sex while (nearly) fully dressed and in the dark (see pages 30-32 of The Tale of Genji by Murasaki Shikibu: Translation by William J. Puette).

Unfortunately it seems they also felt like they couldn't serve a clean adaptation and had to give us an establishing moment, hence the clumsy use of the first chapter of the manga as the plot of the first episode of the 2016 anime. I'll probably stick with it but after watching episode 3 I keep getting the nagging feeling that I could be experiencing all this with more fluidity by just reading the manga.
The censorship of the new show is also pretty weird compared to the manga and the 90s anime. Copious gore, the rape-horse and Farnese mounting the Dragonslayer are all kept, but Farnese's nipples apparently didn't make it.
