BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy- is directed by Takaharu Ozaki and features animation production by Liden Films. The series is currently streaming in the United States and other world markets on Netflix, which describes the story as such:
Four hundred years since the collapse of modern civilization, the world is dominated by the chaos of swords and sorcery.
The Dark Rebel Army, which plans to resurrect the god of destruction Anthrasax, continues to expand its power in a bid to rule the world, led by the overwhelmingly powerful Four Divine Kings.
The Kingdom of Meta-llicana on the Central Metallion Continent is assaulted by the sorcerer-led Dark Rebel Army.
In order to save the kingdom, Tia Noto Yoko, daughter of the Great Priest, has a decision to make — she must resurrect the ancient great wizard who once plotted to rule the world, and who is sealed within her childhood friend Lucien Renlen.
The only thing that can undo the seal is a virgin’s maiden kiss.
Facing imminent danger, Yoko puts her lips on Lucien’s, and in that moment, a dark and powerful energy fills the air.
The strongest, wildest, and most beautiful protagonist, the legendary wizard Dark Schneider, is finally revived!
BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy- season 2 is scheduled to stream sometime in 2023.
