I gotta admit that im surprised Bastard!! doesnt have many reviews since its a pretty well known manga. I am a Bastard!! fan so ill try to impartially explain why I find it such a good series.

A somewhat disjointed classic with an irresistibly charismatic lead. Loved this series, though it did start to drag on as it Gainaxed its way into oblivion at the end. Sad I'll never see it finished, nor the excellent anime continued.

Story: 7 due to it being disjointed and taking on fever-dream levels of madness toward the tail end. Time jumps, enemies become friends, the surreal backstory that is revealed in the later parts... there are other stories that do this worse, but this was WEIRD.
