Series cast summary:
Jonathan David Cook ...
 Narrator (1 episode)


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.

I think that was great!!
17 November 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well after seeing many Animes like Berserk, Lodoss War, Vampire Hunter D, X, and Hellsing, Bastard came as a nice surprise to me.

Actually I would say Bastard encapsulates the courage of men of Berserk, the will to fight on of Hellsing, and a nice love story of Vampire Hunter D.

I don't know why the main character has a German name (Schneider) but he is the Bastard. After Berserk's Gatsu, Dark Schneider is the perfect replacement. Ok, he has the bad habbit to get slapped in every battle, but he always stands up again, and teaches his foes the meaning of life really. In the end unifiying them to form the Return of the Heroes...

Great Great Anime, see it at all cost

Also has some great funny scenes...
