Helck Anime: Release Date, Plot and More

Helck anime has been announced and we think that Helck is the closest anime to Demon Slayer in terms of era and style, although the visuals may not be up to the mark this shonen has a lot of potential and may be similar to the misfit of Demon king academy anime.

Yes if you have watched such demon anime before then it will be no surprise to you how gruesome the battles can get, and the bloodlust gets emitted from the scenes themselves.

Helck Anime Plot & Expectations

The story is set in a world of humans and demons coexisting together. After the defeat of the Demon Lord by a lone human warrior, the demons have organized a tournament to crown the next demon lord for their kind but something’s not right. Demons get astonished at Helck’s appearance and rise in the tournaments quickly, the intriguing part is that Helck is a human who hates his kind and wants to become a demon lord.

Funny right? Vermilio the red, supervisor of the tournament detects that Helck might be a saboteur who wants to rig the match so he changes the matches into games of skills, and guess what? Helck remains victorious in the skill matches too.

As the story progresses Vermilio learns that Helck is a wanted criminal in the human race because he is under suspicion of killing his brother Cress, who killed the demon lord. Vermilio’s curiosity gets the better of him and he decides to spy on Helck to learn his true motive.

The official website has shared a short introduction for the anime release on their official website which we have shared below:

“A certain country in the demon world. The Demon King was defeated by a single hero, and a competition was held to determine who would become the new Demon King. The leader of the tournament, Vamilio, the Four Heavenly Kings of the Empire, is enraged at the participation of the human hero Herc, who should be his enemy.

Before the final match, Vamilio received news that Demon King Ulm’s castle had fallen and set out to recapture Ulm Castle with the players who remained in the final, including Helck. Helck says with a smile, ‘Let’s destroy humans.’ Are those words true? What is the truth hidden in the smile…”

Q. What was your first impression of the work and the character you played?

“The beginning is full of surreal gags, but with the appearance of characters with strong individuality, such as the straight-laced Vaan-chan and Herk, who is full of tsukkomi elements, I felt very deep chaos. rice field. As the number of episodes increases, the gap between the development and the gag becomes stronger, so the brain may be confused!”

Q. What did you feel when you acted, and what points were you particular about?

“He was a character that needed energy all the time, so many people were worried, “Are you okay with your throat?” In particular, the momentum of Tsukkomi was a point that I could not compromise on, so I was competing with myself on the point of how far I could break the rhythm without breaking the atmosphere of her stiff head.”

Q. Message to everyone who is looking forward to the broadcast

“This work is by no means the main work of Gag. A story about the demon world and the human world. The story is told from both perspectives. But in the early stages, Va… Ann-chan, I’m doing my best with the gag. Who on earth is Helck, the title of this work? Stay tuned for the broadcast!!”
