New Trailer for ‘Bastard!!’ Anime Teases Dark Schneider’s Demonic Powers

Netflix’s upcoming Bastard!! The anime series is sure to amaze us with its dark themes and lunatic-powered magician Dark Schneider.

While the manga has controversial traits, it didn’t stop the franchise from gaining a cult following as many grew to love the character and the story. The popularity then inspired a six-episode OVA in the 90s, but that wasn’t enough for fans.

The franchise has returned with another anime adaptation, Bastard! -Heavy Metal and Dark Fantasy- to debut on the 30th June 2022.

Netflix has revealed an English-subtitled trailer previewing the anime’s opening theme, ‘Bloody Power Frame’ by coldrain.

The video opens on a dramatic note, as Tio Noo Yoko breaks open the seal and releases Dark Schneider. What good is a evil magician to be released? They need him to win their battles.

As the God of Destruction Anthrasax’s threat looms over the kingdom, the high priest is forced to bring back Dark Schneider, the only one who can save them.

However, as soon as he’s freed, the unhinged magician returns to his destructive and womanizing behavior. Dark Schneider is a narcissist and has all the power. He gathers his team and prepares to destroy Anthrasax.

Mami Koyama will play the role of Anthrasax, according to the franchise. Koyama also voices Balalaika and Miki in Black Lagoon.

Even though it has been serialized in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, the manga is unlike any other shonen story you’ve seen. Bastard is a heartfelt protagonist who sacrifices his life for the sake of others. We got an evil, omnipotent, self-centered magician who wants control over the world.

That’s the major reason I’m excited to see what the anime has in store for us this time.
