BASTARD!! anime release date for Part 1’s first 13 episodes confirmed by Netflix

Back in February, Netflix revealed the teaser trailer of the new Bastard!! anime due to launch in 2022. This dark fantasy series, renowned for its titular horndog wizard, Dark Schneider, will be a split-cour series. 

Now, you may be asking: what’s a “cour”? Well, a “cour” is a three-month block of TV broadcasting based on the physical seasons, usually composed of 10 to 13 episodes.

But the upcoming Bastard!! anime will consist of 13 episodes, according to an announcement from the official Twitter account. 

The original tweet in Japanese:


アニメ『BASTARD!! -暗黒の破壊神-』はNetflixにて、

第1話~13話 2022年6月30日(木)全世界配信開始 予定
第14話~24話 2022年 予定 ※配信開始日、後日発表




And the translated tweet in English:

“Delivery date decided on Netflix!

The anime “BASTARD !!-Dark Destruction God-” is available on Netflix.

Episodes 1 to 13 scheduled to start worldwide distribution on Thursday, June 30, 2022

Episodes 14 to 24 Scheduled for 2022 * Delivery start date, announced at a later date.

Please look forward to the delivery!”

The above date confirms the rumors we reported on and predictions we made back in February.

Little has been revealed about the story at the moment. A short excerpt from the official website states the following:

“The work is classic entertainment at its finest: a grand and unique story, compelling fantasy world, intense battles full of sword & sorcery, and cute heroines that were probably a bit too risqué for a young boys’ comic back then. All this paired with the manga’s elaborate artwork make Bastard!! the pioneer and pinnacle of dark fantasy manga, influencing countless works that followed.”

Given the current character roster, which includes the likes of Abigail, Di-amon, and Kall-Su, the first cour will likely revolve around the earlier story arcs of the Bastard!! manga.

To date, we have confirmation of the following Japanese voice cast members:

Key animation staff includes Takaharu Ozaki as the director, Kazuhiro Inoue as the art director, Yosuke Kuroda as the story editor, Sayaka Ono as the character designer, Yasunori Ebina as the sound director, and Kumiko Taniguchi as the Special effect supervisor. 

Liden Films handles animation production, and Felix Film works on the 3D-CGI. And Warner Bros. Japan produces the Bastard!! anime. This upcoming series seems promising, but we’ll know for sure when June rolls around. Stay tuned!
