Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy Release Date, Trailer And Latest News

Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy is something that has hooked everyone to social media. Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy fans are eagerly anticipating the release. Below we have mentioned everything we know so far about Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy.

There seems to be a lot of media right now that revisits or alludes to the culture of the 1980s. There has been a resurgence of interest in heavy metal music and tabletop RPGs like Dungeons & Dragons. Eddie Munson (Joseph Quinn), the main character in Season 4 of Stranger Things, is a great example of this because he is the leader of a D&D group called The Hellfire Club and also a huge metalhead. Eddie is the epitome of the “freak” stereotype, with his long, scraggly hair and devil-faced shirt.

To varying degrees of success, numerous works of media are now attempting to capture this aesthetic and subculture. Bastard!! – Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy, an upcoming Netflix anime series, is taking the exact opposite approach. Bastard!! by Kazushi Hagiwara, first released as a manga in the late 1980s, takes obvious cues from both Dungeons & Dragons and heavy metal.

Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy Trailer

There’s no hiding the fact that the trailer is a violent, metal-infused shonen. Thrilling heavy metal bands like Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden provide the soundtrack to the trailer. Fan-favorite elements of the series, such as its brutality and fantastical undertones, are prominently on display. Set against a fantasy backdrop of lightning-lit castles and burning battlefields, the trailer is a fast-paced flurry of magic spells, demons, and sword action. As the guitars strum, it’s like an army marching to the front lines. In the preview, we see Dark Schneider, the anti-hero protagonist, cackling arrogantly and using impressive magic. Those familiar with the manga will also recognize a reference to the infamous slime scene.

Despite its glitz, the trailer provides very little information to viewers who are unfamiliar with the series. You can watch the trailer for Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy below:-

Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy Background

Created by Kazushi Hagiwara, the original Japanese manga series debuted in 1988 in Weekly Shonen Jump and continued in Ultra Jump in 2000. Direct and indirect allusions to heavy metal and Dungeons & Dragons show that Hagiwara found inspiration in both. Names like “The Kingdom of Metallica” (after Metallica), “The God of Destruction Anthrasax” (after Anthrax), and “Lead Character Dark Schneider” (possibly named after German heavy metal singer Udo Dirkschneider) are all references to members of Hagiwara’s favorite bands.

Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy Storyline

Based on the Netflix trailer, here is the official synopsis for Bastard Heavy Metal Dark Fantasy:

“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 Renren. 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 at that moment, dark and powerful energy fills the air. The strongest, wildest, and most beautiful protagonist, the legendary wizard Dark Schneider, is finally revived!”
