Did you already rock out to all 13 episodes of the BASTARD!! -Heavy Metal, Dark Fantasy anime currently available on Netflix? Even if the answer is no, you have some time to catch up, because the official accounts recently lined up the second batch of episodes for this September.

According to the announcement, episodes 14-24 will launch on Netflix around the world on September 15. 

Here’s the full stream in which the announcement was made:

The new BASTARD!! anime is produced at LIDEN FILMS, with Takaharu Ozaki of GOBLIN SLAYER working as the director. The task of series scripts goes to Yousuke Kuroda, who previously worked on My Hero Academia and Mobile Suit Gundam 00. The music is being composed by Yasuharu Takanashi of Naruto Shippuden and Fairy Tail, and it’s being produced by Warner Bros. Japan.

Netflix describes the anime like so:

Four hundred years since the collapse of modern civilization, the world is dominated by the chaos of swords and sorcery. The Dark Rebel Army, which plans to resurrect the god of destruction Anthrasax, continues to expand its power in a bid to rule the world, led by the overwhelmingly powerful Four Divine Kings. The Kingdom of Metallicana on the Central Metallion Continent is assaulted by the sorcerer-led Dark Rebel Army. In order to save the kingdom, Tia Noto Yoko, daughter of the Great Priest, has a decision to make — she must resurrect the ancient great wizard who once plotted to rule the world, and who is sealed within her childhood friend Lucien Renren. The only thing that can undo the seal is a virgin’s maiden kiss. Facing imminent danger, Yoko puts her lips on Lucien’s, and in that moment, a dark and powerful energy fills the air. The strongest, wildest, and most beautiful protagonist, the legendary wizard Dark Schneider, is finally revived!
