If you are not caught up with Bastard, you should know the first half of season one is streaming right now on Netflix. The manga is also available to purchase online through Viz Media, but it is currently out of print. Your best bet when it comes to reading Kazushi Hagiwara’s hit manga will come through secondhand copies, so if you are interested, you can read up on Bastard’s official synopsis below:
“The kingdom of Metallicana is under siege by evil armies of monsters. The desperate defenders turn to a legend that a virgin’s kiss may awaken the wizard “Dark Schneider” from his slumber inside the innocent boy Lucien. Thanks to his sister Yoko, Lucien metamorphoses into the powerful, lecherous wizard. With demons, dragons, and other dark forces roaming the land, and Dark Schneider barely under control, the question remains: will Metallicana ever know a lasting peace?”
