Storyline

It is 500 years in the future. The world has been destroyed by an unspeakable evil, and has grown back in the old feudal form of kingdoms. It is roamed by monsters. The kingdom of Meta Rikana is under attack by the evil wizard Abigail. The mages have put up a seal, but it is only a matter of time until the seal gives. The 15 year old daughter of the greatest priest, Yoko, has been given a spell by her father to summon forth the greatest warrior of their kingdom, from an innocent (her best friend, a 15 year old boy), by a kiss. This warrior is Dark Schneider, a warrior that tried to conquer the world 15 years ago, but was imprisoned inside the body of the boy. Now, he is both the boy and Dark Schneider, and protects Meta Rikana, and his friend/love, Yoko, while exploring his past in encounters with old enemy Ninja Master Gara, and former love, half-elf Arshes Nei.

Quotes

Young Gara: Something about you is different. Something I can't quite put my finger on. Who are you? Why are you here? You look like the man demon but act nothing like him. You're an imposter. If that the case, then Dark Scneider must be dead.
Dark Schneider: And if he is?
Young Gara: Then I'll kill you as well. I'll kill you dead! And I'll do it using this sword. Now die! Damn your legendary immortality!

Anime meets heavy metal bands.
9 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

Bastard is very amusing because many of names of things in the series are based loosely off of heavy metal bands. Seriously, I'm not kidding here. If you know your heavy metal bands, you'll be able to figure out when a certain band is being referred to. Example: A major attack spell is a loose adaption of the band Mega Death. There are nations named after Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. While the series is very graphic, it's not very serious at all and very funny to watch with friends.
