Synopsis

Three months have passed since the Demon King was defeated by a hero. Mankind rejoices over their victory, but dwellers of the demon world do not share the same sentiment. With the loss of their king, they must now hold a tournament to decide who will become his successor.

Monitoring the competition is the hot-headed yet powerful Vamirio—one of the Four Heavenly Kings. Among all the participants, she is extremely distrustful of one: Helck, a human hero who claims to hate humanity. As much as she wants to get rid of him, it is impossible due to Helck's incredible strength and popularity.

Amidst the competition, Vamirio discovers that humans have vanished from various towns. As a result of this puzzling turn of events, Vamirio grows desperate to reveal Helck's true intentions by carefully crafting a plan to make Helck lose. If she proves to be successful, she might uncover where his loyalty truly lies before the demon world is endangered.

From a light-hearted comedy show with few action scenes to an amazing show with wonderful world building, characters, heavy backstories and one of the best voice acting roles I have ever heard in my life (Ma Shaa Allah). Welcome to the fantastic world of Helck.

What I picked up as a comedy show due to what feels like a drought of good ones in months, turned out to actually be a very solid anime. An anime that started with a very unique premise of a hero trying to be a demon lord and the antic he faces along the way. From demons accepting him and others ...

I was initially interested in this anime because its premise made me think it would be a medieval fantasy alternative of Hoshi no Samidare but with a retro protagonist, but the recommendations and comparisons to it mentioned Berserk, which made me even more interested in it, but aside from a few characters dying, I found no similarity whatsoever between the two titles. More people said it’s similar to I’m Quitting Heroing, so I guess I’m gonna watch that at some point for the sake of comparison or something.

Another comparison that was made was with One Punch Man, and initially Helck does play out like a ...

This show started off well enough. It presented itself as a comedy series with an OP protagonist, which has been done before, but had a few interesting facets including a lot of “why” to answer, particularly when it came to worldbuilding an character motivations. Especially considering how manga fans were singing its praises, I was expecting to see something interesting in at least one of these.

To put it simply, the worldbuilding is basic with only a few glimmers of something more, and the character motivations range from extremely basic to enigmatic with only a couple of characters breaking the mould.

That being said, it didn’t have ...
