Japanese manga author and illustrator Nanaki Nanao created the series Helck. Between May 2014 and December 2017, it was serialized on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday website and MangaONE app. The manga had a gripping plot and endearing characters, and on February 14, 2022, Nanaki Nanao adapted it for television. Satelight will produce it, and Tatsuo Sato will serve as the director.
The plot comes to life thanks to the skillful scriptwriting of Toshizo Nemoto and Mitsutaka Hirota, whose character designs are by Yoshinori Deno and whose music is by Yoshihisa Hirano. The Helck anime has two cours that follow one another, so viewers will have lots of chances to fully explore the universe of the manga.
The series’ opening theme is “It’s My Soul” by Hiroki Nanami. Saji’s “Statice,” which serves as the closing theme, adds a hint of sorrow to the whole ambiance. With such a brilliant crew and a faithful adaptation, one can anticipate an exciting and amazing anime experience.

Vermilio the Red, the Elite Four Demon in command, is drawn to Helck during the competition since he is a human hero with an intense animosity towards his race. Despite Vermilio’s suspicions that Helck has hidden agendas, he keeps winning, stunning both the demon onlookers and his opponents. Helck keeps winning despite Vermilio’s schemes.
