Fifteen years ago, Dark Schneider, a ruthless magician of immeasurable power, sought to conquer the world with an army led by his generals, the Four Divine Kings. However, he was defeated and sealed in the body of a newborn boy.

In the present day, the disbanded party of Dark Schneider has reformed with a macabre goal: to resurrect Anthrasax—the god of destruction that nearly annihilated the world four centuries ago—and establish a war-free society. To do so, the Four Divine Kings must break four seals located in four different kingdoms.

Targeted for its seal, the kingdom of Metallicana struggles to repel the army commanded by the Four Divine Kings. With hope dwindling, all eyes turn to the daughter of Metallicana's Grand Priest, Yoko Tia Noto. Not only is she aware that her adopted younger brother, Lucien Renlen, is Dark Schneider's prison of flesh, but she also knows the ritual to break the seal. Left with no other choice, Yoko successfully releases Dark Schneider, whose twisted personality has not changed over the years. As the fate of the world depends on where his allegiance lies, Yoko seems to be the only person who has some control over the powerful magician. But convincing Dark Schneider to turn against his old allies and protect those Yoko holds dear may prove to be an impossible feat.

I love this show

It's basically if you take 80's metal album covers and gave them a story full of lewdness, violence, and a main character that solos every verse with gigchad energy alone

As a metal head and anime fan this anime is 10 out of 10 Dark Schneider is what the red pill guy think they are but they will never be anywhere near the level of Chad energy that is Dark Schneider and the opening is the greatest anime opening of recent memory

The story is bat shit insane if you like the metal life style you'll enjoy this

The art and animation are great ...

Bastard!! may not be a big success story in the anime medium, but what it does do, it does well. For those expecting the old school style of anime, this is what you'll get. It's not a masterpiece, it's not even that good to be honest, but the aspects it needed to hit, it did. Animation is great, sound quality is great, it has great fights, it has lewd fanservice, and this is all I was expecting. If you go into this knowing, it's a trashy old school anime homage, then I think this can be enjoyable for some, whilst others, ...

After watching all 24 episodes of this, with most of it being out of spite, I can honestly say that I didn't like this anime. Other anime have done the power fantasy/harem better, and frankly, it's so much more frustrating to watch with a main character who is this insufferable and side characters who are this utterly infatuated with him. The sexual scenes are needlessly gratuitous and far too common, the fights are just ass pull after ass pull with no real strategy behind them, the reasons why everyone is doing everything remain murky at best and are dumb as hell at worst... hell, even ...
