    A princess and her two ministers look on

    Let's see what anime lovers have to say about this series:

    1. I hope that some of you binge-watched this on July 4th.

    2. An anime so amazing that some viewers are now exploring its manga.

    Netflix Bastard was a ton of fun, I enjoyed the first half more than the second but it got me interested enough to check out the manga. Major Guilty Gear vibes.

    3. Netflix: How many reasons do you need to watch Bastard!!? Viewers: Yes.

    Bastard is basically anime porn. Does it make sense? No. Will I keep watching? Yes. I'm so entertained and need a season 2 #BastardNetflix. I love Dark Schneider. He is a wreck.

    4. Bastard!! is an engrossing and entertaining wild ride of an anime.

    Finished watching Bastard anime on Netflix, and I had so much fun watching it 😄 It's been an extremely long time since I watched an anime that had the same vibe as High School DxD and was self aware. Also has a BANGER of an opening & ending! 🙌🏻

    5. Even Netflix's haters can't stop loving Bastard!!.

    Netflix sucks. Bastard!! on the other hand doesn't. First season was a fucking blast. Just balls to the wall heavy metal murder. I fucking loved it.

    6. An interesting trivia about one of the characters.

    Apparently, bastard's immortal vampire count di-amon is based on real life heavy metal artist, king diamond. Only with a slight tweak to the name, it became something absolutely badass. Now you know why i love the netflix anime series so much.

    7. Well, porn or not, it's damn well entertaining.

    So I'm watching Bastard on Netflix... ...this is porn. This is definitely porn... But dammit I'm in

    11. The animation does look sloppy here.

    12. Statutory warning from one of the viewers.

    13. Some are looking for reasons to hate it, but Bastard!! is tough to hate.

    Ok I'm on ep 3 of the remake of Bastard! on Netflix I want to hate it, but I don't yet. Also the OP theme ''slaps no cap fr fr bussin'' as the young'ins say

    Twitter: @Nicchiban_

    14. Yes!

    “Wow. Bastard on Netflix was amazing.” “Liden actually did a good job.”” “It’s so gory and vulgar.” “Dark Schneider the GOAT MC.” Me:

    15. Fans are hoping that more and more people watch this so that Netflix renews it.

    I need y’all to watch Bastard!! So Netflix don’t just give me one season of this heavy metal pervert anime.

    16. For those who don't get the reference: Inuyasha is another very popular anime.

    Whoever casted Inuyasha's actor to voice Dark Schneider in the Indonesian dub of Bastard!! must be on to something

    17. Bastard!! has a very primal approach to telling its story.

    Finished BASTARD!! last night and that's a very good unapologetic anime "This is a kid's comic who would bother with foreshadowing" "It's so huge, it shakes hand with my belly button!" Never too late to see a character like Dark Schneider aka The Ultimate Handsome Hero

    18. Dark Schneider is FUNNY!

    Dark Schneider's laugh is Something Ellllllllsssssseeeeeee😏😏😏😏😭😍😂😂😂😂😂😂❤!!!!!!!!! He's so funny!!!! #bastard #DarkSchneider

    19. Some much needed appreciation for people behind the scenes.
