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.

Helck is a fantasy anime with a rich world building and character development. I went in blind and I thought Helck was just another generic overpowered fantasy MC, but his entire character is slowly revealed throughout the story which makes it interesting and avoids him becoming a stale overpowered generic MC. Helck can be funny, mysterious, and many many more, which we get to watch and unravel his relationship to the world the more it progresses.

Really enjoyed how they didn’t shy away from really having good funny moments, to even revealing much darker moments whenever needed all throughout the story. I say it was balanced ...

I'm making this review mainly to tell you that the anime doesn't finish the plot, it ends in a cliffhanger. I don't think it's worth it to watch the 24 episodes while there's not a continuation out there to watch.
All in all, Helck has a vibe similar to the old 2000's animes, which is really refreshing. You can see that in the art style and also in the type of comedy that is scattered here and there and softens the plot, which is actually surprisingly dark.
Art style: amazing.
Animation: really good, well-balanced fighting scenes.
Plot: the main plot is surprisingly good, but it doesn't finish, and it's ...

Honestly, Helck is disappointing. The show starts off really well as a strong comedy, however as the show progresses almost all the comedic elements disappear and we are left with a stereotypical shounen action show. It includes all the tropes that I hate in shounen action, such as the MC being strong enough to stop everything that happens but standing by and watching all his friends be defeated because he's sad, or being able to stop pretty much any attack but not being around when attacks occur due to random details from the plot or just standing around waiting to join the fight for some ...
