Netflix to premiere second season of ‘BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy’ this year

The second season of the new anime adaptation of Kazushi Hagiwara’s BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy– action manga will debut on Netflix globally in 2023, according to a Warner Bros. Japan announcement that was made recently. The title of the new anime is Bastard!! Ankoku no Hakaishin: Jigoku no Chinkonka-hen (BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy- Requiem of Hell Arc).

Hagiwara created an illustration to mark the occasion. The same cast will be returning for the upcoming season. Four more cast members were also made public by Warner Bros. Japan. Takuma Terashima as Joshua Berahia, Sho Hayami as Nils John Mifune, Junichi Suwabe as Yngwei von Mattström and Koji Yusa as Zion Sol Vanderverg.

The first 13 episodes of the anime, which make up its first part, made its global Netflix premiere on 30 June. On 15 September, Netflix debuted the second instalment, which included episodes 14–24.

In 1988, Hagiwara debuted the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump. Since then, the series has only sometimes been serialized in the magazine and, subsequently in Ultra Jump, beginning in 2001. The manga’s 27th compiled book volume was released by Shueisha in March 2012, and the series has sold over 30 million copies to date. The manga was published by Viz Media in English, however, after the 19th volume, the series was no longer available. The 20th volume’s English publication was shelved by the firm.

Vidyut Jammwal is poised to be an action-thriller

Set to be an action-packed thriller, the trailer of Vidyut Jammwal’s Commando 3 is out. It is the third installment of the Vidyut starrer-actioner.

The movie is helmed by Aditya Datt and stars Adah Sharma, Angira Dhar and Deviah in prominent roles.

The trailer opens with Gulshan’s character saying, “Hindustan royega, khoon ke aansu royega. There will be a civil war, main rahu ya na rahu.” Then Vidyut’s character is introduced, a stoked-up commando, who has been appointed to defeat Gulshan.

Vidyut shared the trailer on his Instagram. He wrote, “Commando 3 Trailer The Indian Commando is finally UNLEASHED!#Commando3Trailer. Releasing on November 29.”

Pixel Digital, the visual studio which had previously worked on major Bollywood projects like Gullyboy and Student of the Year 2 has been tasked with the post-production VFX work, given the high-voltage action-thriller that the Commando franchise is typically known for.

Commando 3 is presented by Reliance Entertainment & Motion Picture Capital, in association with Sun Shine Pictures and Vipul Amrutlal Shah Production.
