7 Anime Like Bastard You Must See

Developed by Studio Liden Films and based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Kazushi Hagiwara, ‘Bastard!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-‘ or ‘Bastard!! Ankoku no Hakaishin’ is a dark fantasy action-adventure original net animation. The plot revolves around Dark Schneider, the most powerful wizard in the world. Fifteen years ago, he was defeated and his mind sealed in his reincarnation Lucien Renlen. However, when Dark Schneider’s former disciples once again start a violent war against the four human kingdoms to free the demon god Anthrasax, humanity has no choice but to turn to its once-great enemy. If you’ve seen and enjoyed “Bastard,” here’s a list of recommendations that might suit you. You can watch most of this anime, similar to ‘Bastard!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-” on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Crunchyroll or Funimation.

7. Detroit Metal City (2008)

‘Detroit Metal City’ is an OVA that has little in common with ‘Bastard’ in terms of size, setting and themes. However, in both anime, heavy metal music plays an important role in the story. From the names of characters, groups and locations to the title itself – ‘Bastard!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-‘ is full of references to heavy metal culture. ‘Detroit Metal City’ tells the story of Souichi Negishi, a reclusive young musician who dreams of success as a pop artist. However, fate seems to have a different plan for him. When he realizes his career isn’t going anywhere, he switches to heavy metal and becomes the lead singer and guitarist of a blackened death metal band, the eponymous Detroit Metal City. Much to his dismay, he finds huge success due to his heavy metal persona: Johannes Krauser II.

6. Inu Yasha (2000-2004)

Both the titular character in the classic anime series ‘InuYasha’ and Dark Schneider have silvery white hair. They also share several personality traits. Both are arrogant and stubborn, but often show a softer side. Inuyasha is a half human and half dog demon. Like Dark Schneider, he was sealed with magic (in his case in a tree in feudal Japan). After 15-year-old Kagome Higurashi is pulled into the past, Inuyasha convinces her to free him from his magical prison. Though he hates Kagome for her physical similarities to a shrine maiden named Kikyou, he decides to help her when he discovers demons are interested in her.

5. Goblin Slayer (2018-)

The adventurer of the same name in ‘Goblin Slayer’ is known for hunting only goblins. After her entire party is wiped out on an excursion into a goblin’s layer, the novice Priestess encounters Goblin Slayer, who saves her life, and fate changes for both of them. As an anime, ‘Goblin Slayer’ has the same ‘realistic’ approach to fantasy as ‘Bastard’. Since Takaharu Ozaki is the director of both anime, they also share a similarity in terms of style and storytelling.

4. Ruler (2015-)

Like ‘Dark Schneider’, ‘Overlord’s Ainz Ooal Gown’ is a very powerful main character. They are typical anti-heroes. ‘Overlord’ is an isekai anime. In the real world, Ainz Ooal Gown was a salary man named Satoru Suzuki. In the year 2126, after the servers of YGGDRASIL, a Full-Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game or DMMORPG, were shut down, one of its players, Momonga, finds herself in another reality along with all the NPCs, which now appear to be got a feeling. By changing the name of his former guild, Ainz Ooal Gown, Momonga begins to explore this new world.

3. The Misfit of Demon King Academy (2020)

Like ‘Dark Schneider’, Anos Voldigoad, the main character of ‘The Misfit of Demon King Academy’, is a reincarnation. Two thousand years ago, Anos was the demon king. He and the human hero Kanon came to realize that the former would sacrifice his life for lasting peace. After his reincarnation, Anos discovers that the world has changed drastically from what it was in his day. Among the demons, the royal class treats the demons belonging to the lower levels harshly and magic begins to weaken because of the peace that his sacrifice brought. Anos decides to become the Demon King again and enrolls in the Demon King Academy.

2. Berserk (2016-2017)

Like the source material of ‘Bastard’, ‘Berserk’ started out as a manga series in the 1980s. Both projects show a considerable impression of the times in their characterization and worldbuilding. Additionally, the 2016 anime adaptation of “Berserk” makes extensive use of heavy metal music. The story in ‘Berserk’ revolves around a mercenary named Guts. He joins the group known as the Band of the Hawk after his leader Griffith defeats him. However, he eventually becomes disillusioned when he realizes that Griffith is willing to sacrifice everything on the altar of his own dreams. After experiencing horrific events during what comes to be known as the Eclipse, Guts becomes a brand drifter known as the Black Swordsman.

1. The Seven Deadly Sins (2014-2021)

Like ‘Bastard’, morality and religion are important motifs in ‘The Seven Deadly Sins’. Meliodas, the protagonist of the latter, is an ancient, powerful entity like Dark Schneider. As the series begins, Meliodas also embarks on a journey to reunite his own team, the eponymous Seven Deadly Sins. The plot follows Princess Elizabeth Liones. After the Great Holy Knights take control of her kingdom, Elizabeth sets out in search of the Sins. Over time, she becomes their ally and realizes that she and Meliodas have known each other for thousands of years.
