Dark Schneider is the "Bastard!"! A lone warlock, freed from years of imprisonment, stands against an army of destruction bent on world conquest and the resurrection of an ancient evil. But Dark Schneider is not protecting the desperate people of Meta-Rikana out of the goodness of his heart. After all, they were the ones who imprisoned him for leading this same army against their city the first time! However, he's not about to let his old army, his old generals, and his ex-girlfriend show him up. Besides, his new girlfriend is counting on him, and it's been awhile since he's had some fun... Contains all 6 episodes.

Satisfy Your Kinky Ideals. by whitetigre2001 October 23, 2004 - 8:18 PM PDT

This anime is not for the staunchiest anime lover, but it's good for the average anime lover. If you want to try to get into hentai, this anime can help in your transition. It's funny. Main character is an arrogant blowhard, but you got to enjoy him. That's why he's called the "Bastard!"

Bastard.. OK, but not great by Scooter October 19, 2003 - 12:48 PM PDT

The movie reflects the main character, Darsh: unmet potential, rudeness, overly grandiouse, pretentious dialog (at least in the English dub), too much "fan service" and some very long, drawn-out scenes. If you are looking for a serious anime or a comedy, this aint it.

If you can get through it, there are amusing moments with "inside" anime jokes, poking fun at itself and the genre. A little more humor could have improved this one; it gets 5 stars.

I have to reluctantly admit that this one of my favorite anime DVDs that I own. I'm reluctant because it is not particularly good. It's so over the top on some of the typical anime silliness that I wonder if it is not spoofing other anime. However, I forgive it of all that because it has some of my favorite one-liners (almost all from Dark Schneider). If you can get past the thin (and over-used in anime) plot and the fan-service (the term used for brief and silly nudity and panty shots in anime), then this can be a very fun show to watch. -FDGUARINO
