What is season 2 of BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy about?
The anime is set in England. However, the names of the characters are close to Chinese. The story takes place in an area devastated by an apocalypse, where people live in constant danger from monsters such as goblins, orcs, vampires, and other mythological creatures, and the power that can save them is even more evil.
The anime’s foundation is based on the manga’s dark fantasy world, with an action-packed story focusing on Dark Schneider, a potent wizard who wakes after a 15-year slumber.
The story continues well beyond what is presented in the additional episodes; this storyline was the most popular in the manga. We also get to watch Dark Schneider and Kall-Su’s deadly encounter.
The additional episodes will cover volumes 8 through 12 of the manga, leading up to Hell’s Requiem.
Netflix has also released a more detailed summary for the season 2:
“The Dark Rebel Army, led by the extremely powerful Four Divine Kings, continues to grow its power to rule the world, with plans to bring back the god of destruction, Anthrasax.”Netflix.
The sorcerer-led Dark Rebel Army attacks the Kingdom of Metallicana on the Central Medallion Continent.
Tia Noto Yoko, daughter of the Great Priest, must decide to preserve the kingdom: awaken the great ancient wizard who once plotted to dominate the world and is locked within her childhood companion Lucien Renren. A virgin’s chaste kiss is the only thing that can break the seal.
Faced with imminent danger, Yoko presses her lips against Lucien’s, and a dark and robust force permeates the room.
