The staff for the new anime of Kazushi Hagiwara's BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy- action manga began streaming the creditless opening video for the theme song "Bloody Power Frame" by coldrain.

Warner Bros. Japan Anime's YouTube channel will stream a special program on July 8 at 8:00 p.m. JST to commemorate the anime's launch. The program will reveal more information on the anime's second part, consisting of episodes 14-24.

The anime's first part, consisting of the first 13 episodes, will debut on Netflix on Thursday worldwide.

Takaharu Ozaki (Goblin Slayer) is directing the anime at LIDEN FILMS. Yousuke Kuroda (My Hero Academia, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is in charge of the series scripts. Sayaka Ono (CROSS ANGE Rondo of Angel and Dragon) is designing the characters. Yasunori Ebina (Naruto) is the sound director. Team-MAX's Yasuharu Takanashi (Naruto Shippūden, Fairy Tail) is composing the music.

Tielle will perform the anime's ending theme song "Blessless."

Hagiwara launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1988. The series has since had irregular serialization in the magazine and later in Ultra Jump starting in 2001. Shueisha published the manga's 27th compiled book volume in March 2012, and the series has over 30 million copies in circulation. Viz Media had released the manga in English, but stopped publishing the series with the 19th volume. The company cancelled its release of the 20th volume in English.

The manga inspired a six-episode original video anime (OVA) in 1992-1993. Geneon Entertainment (also known as Pioneer) released the anime on home video.
