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. Written by Steve Dickson

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!

Really tremendous!
26 March 2002 | by silversurferSee all my reviews

Bastard!! quite frankly, is a great show period. Screw that it is anime - it is corn ball funny and very good. It sucks you into the story straight away and has you wanting to watch all 6 episodes straight.

As a side note- I never heard of this anime and only bought it because my wife and I bought the action figures for it (which kick much ass!)

If you like fanatsy, sword and sorcery type stuff this is great stuff
