Helck 2023 / A familiar fantasy action anime with an unlikely hero at the helm of a war between humans and demons


After the fall of the Demon Lord, the Demon realm hosts a tournament to find a successor. Strangely, the contestant predicted to win (stronger than other contestants in every way) is Helck, a human with a disdain for humankind. With the tournament underway, fantasy and action are abundant in the first episode alone. The mystery of Helck’s participation and the constant loom of a race war set the trajectory of the series but humor and gimmicks are never far behind. Whether it’s a ridiculous card-building game, twins with coffee-triggered telepathy, or the sudden onslaught of winged creatures, Helck has something to offer.
