Netflix recently renewed the epic remake of the retro dark fantasy series, ‘Bastard!!’ whose first season received a surprisingly great response. Due to this positive reaction, the company decided to continue, much to our delight.

If you are a veteran fan and have watched the original series, I’m pretty sure you know where the story is going. For those who came into the fandom because of the Netflix remake, I’d like to inform you that you’re in for a wild ride.

As dark and thrilling as the first season was, the next one will be even better. That’s because ‘Bastad!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy-‘ anime’s second season will adapt the ‘Requiem of the Hell’ arc.

With new storylines come new characters, and the same goes for this one. The anime’s official website has revealed two new cast and characters for season 2, and they are as follows:
