The 2022 revival might last up to three complete seasons if the current pacing is any indication, but that depends on how well it does with viewers.

Reviews and ratings can also have a significant impact. Netflix shows are always reliant on the number of viewers they can attract, both domestically and abroad in Japan. Even while it’s far too early to tell how fans will react to the new relaunch, it’s interesting to note that reactions have been varied.

It has just been one day since the series’ global premiere, but IMDB and MyAnimeList are both giving it 8.2 and 7.04 out of 10 points, respectively. The reviews from critics have also been conflicting, with LeisureByte awarding it a 3.5/5 and ReadySteadyCut calling it a “very sexualized anime with outmoded views.”

Fans may anticipate lots more Dark Schneider content to be generated if Bastard can maintain his good reputation and elevate the plot in season 1 part 2.
