The kingdom of Metallicana is under attack from the Four Lords of Havoc. This party of villains—ninja master Gara, deadly thunder empress Nei Arshes, cold and calculating Kall-Su, and enigmatic dark priest Abigail—will stop at nothing to get what they want, even if it leaves utter destruction in their wake.
High Priest Geo is desperate to help save the kingdom and its people. He unleashes the mighty wizard Dark Schneider, a man who used to be an ally of the villains. Unfortunately, Dark Schneider has his own plans in mind. Will he stop the Four Lords of Havoc or join them in their conquest of the world?
Modern civilization and the world was destroyed by the God of Destruction, Anthrasax, in 7 days, and then is sealed. Hundreds of years later, the sorcerer Dark Schneider leads a group in an attempt to control the world. Dark Schneider, in the end, is sealed in the body of a young baby, Rushe Ren Ren. 15 years later, his group, minus Scheider, attempts the same mission by unsealing Anthrasax so they can redo the world. To save the Kingdom of Metallicana, a girl named Yoko releases Dark Schneider from her friend Rushe. Now, Dark Schneider fights his former comrades, but not for good; he fights to protect Yoko, and to have some destructive fun.

Bastard with two exclamation points is an anime adaptation based on the 1980’s Shonen manga of the same name. And as the title may imply, a very offensive one at that. No, this series is not for the faint of heart or the prudish. Bastard glorifies violence and sexuality in their purest forms and is unapologetic to the core. Currently, at the time of this review, the series rating on mal is sitting at a six. This is not a testament to its quality. And the only reason I believe the score is the way it is, is because we live in a generation of sticklers and sticks in the mud. That’s just my personal opinion though. Bastard comes from a time when men weren’t afraid to be men, and like manly things like heavy metal and obscene cleavage. If that offends you exit now!
