Soon after the last Demon King was defeated, the Demon Empire started a contest to choose the next Demon King.

But the favorite contestant to win the tournament was no other than a human, The Hero Helck, whose motive to become the Demon King was to defeat his own race.

What are Helck's true motives to participate in the contest and defeat the human kingdom? It's up to one of the Four Heavenly Kings of the Empire, Red Vamirio, to discover and unfold Helck's true intentions


In 2015, Helck ranked 8th in the "Tsugi Ni Kuru Manga Taishou" (次にくるマンガ大賞) in the Next Generation Manga Awards.

Helck is literally the most fun i ever had with fiction.

It doesn't sound like anything particular innovative, and it isn't really, the Demon King was defeated and they're holding a tournament to choose the next one, does the twist that the guy who killed him is in the tournament and goes around with a funny face saying that he hates humans makes it more interesting? Of course it does.

Helck has a lot more comedy in the early part than the rest, i'm not going to pretend it's a series that "starts childish but get serious" or anything, it's just a series that happens to mix read more

What is it that makes Helck so enjoyable, I often ask myself. The story is nothing new, nor is the art anything special. The cast is simple: there are good guys and then there are bad guys. It really isn't anything groundbreaking.

But what it has that separates it from other manga is its execution. Helck delivers a heartfelt story filled with laughter and tears in a simple yet elegant manner. There is nothing else to it- it's not convoluted like Death Note, and it doesn't need to be.

All it needs to do to kick-start the whole thing is ask one question: "So, can a read more

I discovered this manga on Christmas when it got the first translated chapters, and kept it opened in my browser tabs for 2 weeks, because I had other manga to read too... 3 days ago I watched the comments, and saw that it already got 49 chapters, so I decided to start reading, I had read the 3 pages, which is the introduction and then put it on hold on for another 2 days, until Yesterday. That was a good decision, this manga is AWSOME, and is great that I had the chance to read 52 chapters at once, I wouldn't have been able to read more

The art style is nothing special, in fact, I would place the level of drawing not very high. However, do not have this dissuade you from reading this series.

The series starts as a very simple and joke like comic. It may seem juvenile, or even boring. Yet, this is just a ploy by the author to hide the true story behind the characters.

I would call this series a very light thriller. There are instances where the reader may be at the edge of their seats eager to find out more.

However, it is no "Monster" or "20th Century Boy", which has a complex web of stories, read more
