Two years after the heroic sacrifice of Dark Schneider in the battle against Abigail, Kall-Su, the final surviving member of the Four Divine Kings, is close to seizing global power. As cities and kingdoms fall one after the other, humanity's last beacon of hope is a group of samurai led by the high priestess Yoko Tia Noto. However, the brutal assaults of Kall-Su's lieutenants against the samurai's fortress quickly make the situation desperate. Once more, Yoko's only way to fix the rapidly devolving crisis is to find Dark Schneider's soul, which has seemingly deserted Lucien Renlen's body since the demise of the kingdom of Metallicana.

I also liked the hints of where the story will go from here if we get another season, which I really hope ...

Mixed Feelings
While there are some good things here: The characters well rounded particularly Yoko and Dark Schneider. Yoko has her moments where she has to be a tough fierce leader and her moments of soft vulnerability. And DS has a soft loving side underneath his cocky exterior. The characters are diverse in representation and design; Arshes & Gara having darker skin and hair and using fashion styles and fighting styles unique from the other characters. I truly believe they react to situations in a realistic way given the setting and world building. But I shouldn't have to sing the praises of characters, setting and world building ...

Bastard season 2 continues many of the same problems as previous seasons. Schneider is still boringly OP and what little plot emerges is too little too late. In fact, season 2 actually manages to exacerbate these problems. For example, a large number of new characters are introduced yet they receive little to no characterisation. However one of the most annoying problems with this series was its treatment of the female cast. The show had always  been fanservice heavy but its ramped up to eleven in some scenes in season 2, and not in a good way. Fanservice can be done well however bastard s2 is ...
