Helck will be releasing its first Volume in North America at the start of the new year, letting readers see the story of a human who dreams of becoming the next demon lord (and the girl set on stopping him).
“Three months have passed since the Demon Lord was struck down, and the Demon Realm is holding a tournament to select his replacement. The leading contestant is Helck, a human hero who claims to hate his own kind. Some aren’t happy with the idea of a human becoming the next Demon Lord—especially Vermilio the Red. She wants nothing more than to protect demonkind and prove Helck to be their enemy, even if she has to rig the competition to do it!”via Viz Media
Helck is an action-adventure fantasy series written and illustrated by Nanki Nanao, and follows a human participating in a tournament to decide the next Demon Lord and ruler of the Demon Realm. The series has received much acclaim in Japan, where it is published by Shogakukan. It would go on to get two spinoff manga, and the series currently has an anime adaption in production.
