Will Arshes Nei die? Is Dark Schneider dead?

‘Hybrid!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-‘ or ‘Bastard!! Ankoku no Hakaishin’ is an original net animation or ONA from Netflix. It is based on the Japanese manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Kazushi Hagiwara. Like the source material, it’s mostly a dark fantasy action-adventure anime with a ladle full of ecchi added. The series is very meta, with the characters aware that they are in a Shounen anime. The story revolves around Dark Schneider, the most powerful wizard in the world. Fifteen years earlier, he was defeated and then sealed in the body of his reincarnation, Lucien Renlen. Now that his former underlings have begun a conquest across the land to unleash an ancient entity, the humans free Dark Schneider as a last-ditch measure. Here’s everything you need to know about the ending of ‘Bastard!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-‘ Season 1. SPOILERS AHEAD.

Bastard Season 1 Recap

As the title and the names of the characters, groups and locations suggest, Hagiwara used heavy metal as a source of inspiration. The series begins in the modern world when humanity is at the peak of its technological prowess. However, human progress comes to a halt when an entity known as darkness appears and begins to destroy the cities. Suddenly a column of light bursts from the ground and another entity appears. This one looks like a dragon. The darkness and the dragon fight and destroy most of the world. Millions of people die. In the end, the dragon emerges victorious and seals the darkness deep underground with four seals.

The story then skips 400 years and starts again with the Dark Rebel Army’s invasion of the kingdom of Metallicana. It is one of the locations where there is a seal that the dragon has placed on the darkness. Another location, the kingdom of Judas, has already fallen and the seal there has been broken.

The Dark Rebel Army, made up of demi-humans and monsters, is led by the four heavenly kings: Gara, Arshes Nei, Abigail, and Kall-Su. They were all disciples of Dark Schneider 15 years ago during the Golem War. After Prince Lars of Metallicana defeated Dark Schneider, they decided to try to free the Darkness, now known as Anthrasax, the greatest demon god of them all. Lars was believed to have died. In reality, he was transformed into a baby dragon, who has been attached to Gara ever since, although the latter has no idea who he is.

After Dark Schneider’s defeat, the chief priest Geo Noto Soto sealed his mind in Lucien’s body. However, he realized that there might come a time in the future when they would need Dark Schneider. So he told his daughter, Tia Noto Yoko, how to temporarily deactivate the seal – a virgin girl’s kiss. In the present time, Metallicana is attacked by the Dark Rebel Army while the chief priest, king and knights are absent from the kingdom. Desperate to protect her home, Yoko kisses her childhood friend, and Dark Schneider gets out of his magical prison for the first time in 15 years.

He easily defeats the brigade that sent the Dark Rebel Army and its leader, Osborn. He then reveals that he has not given up on his original plans to conquer the world. However, Yoko seems to have significant control over him due to her connection to Lucien. Although Lucien is about the same age as Yoko, he seems younger than her physically, emotionally and mentally. Yoko also discovers that she can transform Dark Schneider back into Lucien by kissing him again.

Though Dark Schneider has little interest in defending Metallicana, he becomes the largely uncaring protector of the kingdom. He and Lucien are ultimately two sides of the same coin. And that’s why he almost feels obligated to protect Yoko. When the four heavenly kings realize that their former leader has returned and sided with the enemy, they try to understand. Gara kidnaps Yoko to lure Dark Schneider to his stronghold. However, he is eventually defeated and changes sides. Thunder Empress Arshes Nei orders her three Sorcerer Generals – Sean Ari, Kai Harn, Di-amon – to defeat Dark Schneider. However, he seduces the first two and places the third under the Accused spell, causing Di-amon to follow all of Dark Schneider’s orders. If he ever decides to rebel, he will turn into a toad.

In the season finale, titled ‘Wavering’, Dark Schneider takes on Arshes Nei. She’s half human, half dark elf. Dark Schneider raised her and later became her lover. They were together for a hundred years. However, she hated him for making a harem for himself. While Dark Schneider was gone for 15 years, the Thunder Empress has only grown more powerful and is probably now as strong as Dark Schneider himself.

Bastard Season 1 Ending: Will Arshes Nei Die?

Dark Schneider is a master of fire magic, while Arshes controls lightning. After the defeats and subsequent defections of three Sorcerer Generals, Abigail expresses his skepticism about Arshes’ willingness to defeat their former leader, pointing to her history with Dark Schneider. To prove that she is no longer Dark Schneider’s adoptive daughter, Arshes has the Dark Priest Abigail cast the spell on her. It puts Abigail in control of Arshes. If she fails in her fight with Dark Schneider or joins him, the color of her nail will change from blue to purple to red and she will turn into a toad.

No, Arshes will not die, nor will she turn into a toad. In the final moments of their battle, they both cast Helloween, the ultimate spell of destruction. However, Dark Schneider is proven to be more powerful and his spell slowly begins to overwhelm Arshes’. Lucien then appears before him and lets him know that Arshes has no intention of killing him or being killed by him. Dark Schneider realizes that Arshes is under the spell of Abigail’s accused and redirects his Helloween spell.

Is Dark Schneider or Lucien dead? What is the meaning of the end credits scene?

That Arshes will not die is made clearer in the end credits scene when Dark Schneider sacrifices himself to save his adoptive daughter. He can also cast the Accused spell, so he knows he needs to rip his heart out to save Arshes. And that is exactly what he is doing, fulfilling the vision of the prophet of the royal family. Dark Schneider is indeed dead. This was the only way he could protect Arshes. But then, this is a world where magic exists. So death is not as permanent as in the ordinary world. In the original manga series, he revives himself. Freed from Abigail’s Accused spell, Arshes rejoins Dark Schneider, becoming the second Heavenly King to do so after Gara. She and Dark Schneider then destroy the approaching battalions of the Dark Rebel Army.

Who or what is anthrasax?

The Heavenly Kings believe that the resurrection of Anthrasax will usher in a utopia on Earth. In 400 years since the entity was defeated by the dragon, humanity has clearly forgotten what it is. Contrary to popular belief, Anthrasax was not created by magic, but by science. 400 years earlier, modern people managed to stop all wars. Instead, it pushed humanity to the brink of extinction. In the manga series, it is revealed that the entity is possessed by an angel. A group of scientists in modern times created the dragon, which is actually the Dragon Knight armor. It is suggested that they also created Dark Schneider to use the armor to defeat Anthrasax.
