Synopsis: The Demon King has been defeated and now the Demon World is running a competition to choose a successor. A muscular, high-level human named Helck has joined the competition claiming that he wishes to destroy all humans. Is he serious?
Red Vamirio, one of the Four Heavenly Kings of the entire Demon Empire, is monitoring the competition and cannot trust him. What's the secret behind Helck, and the Human World? (Summary provided via Baka-Updates.)
I've enjoyed the series immensely thus far. The storytelling is superb, the artwork is acceptable, and the comedy ain't too bad. Plus, the deconstruction surrounding several jRPG mechanics and tropes, especially when seen from the demons' point of view, adds a unique spice to the story's appeal.
Kudos to Rello for making this series known to Western audiences! Can be read here.
