The Helck is an action-fantasy series that delivers a heartfelt story filled with laughter and tears in a simple yet elegant manner. It isn’t groundbreaking but has managed to win the hearts of many fans with its detail in execution.
The anime premiered on July 11 and will air for two continuous cours for a half-year run. The anime will soon enter its second cour in October. Here’s everything you need to know before the second lap.
The Helck anime is getting ready to continue into the fall 2023 season this October, and ahead of that, a new teaser trailer was released at the Kyoto International Manga Anime Fair. HIDIVE is streaming the series as it airs.
The teaser trailer previews Aimi’s new opening theme song, “HELP.” Aimi also plays Iris in the series. The trailer showcases glimpses of the story so far and also previews the story for the next cour. This trailer has fans wondering if the production team plans to end the anime this season.
However, this would not be good for the pacing, and fans hope the anime doesn’t rush the story. We cannot say anything for sure as of now. We need to wait for further episodes to understand the situation better.
The official Twitter account for The Helck has released a teaser visual drawn by Nanaki Nanao.
As of now, the tenth episode of the anime has been released. In this latest episode, Helck and Vermilio have moved to the next town for the map after the confrontation with the Toasman king.
The story takes a different turn and focuses on a cooking competition. Fans have thoroughly enjoyed this episode and crave more. It has never been easy for anime fans to wait every week for a new episode, but that’s the reality.
All we can do now is hope that the anime will continue its streak and not mess up the pacing.
