Here's that thing:

https://terrenceswiff.wordpress.com/2016/02/12/helck/

 

I just started writing reviews this week, and my Helck review is bigger than my first two reviews combined. It's kind of massive. I quite like Helck, and it took me a while to explain why. I don't actually think everyone ever can enjoy this series, so maybe all these words will inform you whether or not it's up your alley. Or maybe you just want to read a thing that's someone gushing over Helck for 3000 words. That's cool too.

 

OH, and I wasn't sure if it would be smart to reference scanlation on a review that also tells you how to buy stuff, but I want to give a HUMONGOUS thanks to rello for translating this series in a marvelous fashion that boosted its popularity. I can't thank that guy enough.

Nice review, it was quite enjoyable. You made me wonder, Helck, being a western based hero, could be a parody of He-man?

I definitely got that impression from him, or maybe a Conan the Barbarian parody.

 

And thanks for reading, glad you enjoyed it.

Seconded what everyone's saying. My only fear is that Helck and Rello will change.

I like how they manage to pull an amazing non-linear plotline, it's really rare.
and at this much, its actually pretty amazing.

At least this doesn't seem like "endless shounen" so it might reach a conclusion before getting bad.

Yeah, and it surprisingly feels really balanced. Good stuff.
