The Bastard: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy anime reboot will return for season 1 part 2 later this year.
If you’re a big fan of great television, you’ll have a busy weekend trying to catch up on The Boys, Stranger Things, and The Umbrella Academy.
However, there is a new anime series, Bastard: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy, that is certainly making an impression with fans all over the world and is well worth your time.
What do we know so far about the future of Bastard: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy with regard to season 1 part 2 as opposed to season 2 despite the fact that the series has just recently made its debut on Netflix?
Bastard: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy will be released in 2022
The good news is that Bastard: Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy will be making its return later on this year with more content. Fans, on the other hand, ought to be aware that this will in fact be the first part of the first season, and not a brand new season altogether.
Back in March of 2022, a Japanese news outlet known as Comic Natalie revealed the first report of the additional voice cast and confirmed that the first season of the anime would be split into two parts, with the second part scheduled to be released prior to the year’s end.
Bastard season 1 part 2 Release date
Bastard season 1 part 2 Release date: Unfortunately, neither Netflix nor the showrunners at Liden Films have disclosed a specific release date for Bastard season 1 part 2 (episodes 14-24), as of this writing. On the other hand, based on the typical wait time for Netflix series with split releases, fans of the new anime series can anticipate that the remaining episodes will be made available for streaming some time before September 2022.
Bastard season 1 part 2: News
If there is enough interest from viewers after the release of the second part of the first season later this year, Bastard will most likely be brought back for a second season in 2023.
On the one hand, there is a substantial amount of source material from the original manga series that has not yet been adapted into any additional anime material.
If things continue at their current rate, there may be as many as three complete seasons of the 2022 reboot. However, the show’s continuation will be determined by how well it does with its audience.
Netflix shows are always dependent on the number of views that they can gain, both locally in Japan and internationally; however, reviews and ratings can also play a significant role in the decision-making process. Interestingly, although it is still way too early to say how fans will react to the new reboot, it seems like they have a variety of opinions about it so far.
The series currently has a score of 8.2/10 on IMDB and 7.04/10 on MyAnimeList, but these ratings are based on an extremely small sample size due to the fact that its global premiere was just one day ago. The reception it received from critics was also mixed, with ReadySteadyCut labeling it a “highly sexualized anime with dated views” and LeisureByte awarding it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
In general, fans can anticipate plenty more Dark Schneider content to be produced if Bastard is able to continue gaining a positive reputation and taking the story to new heights in the second part of the first season.
