Plot Concept: After a crushing defeat at the hands of humanity, the demons are ready to elect their new Demon King! Only demons don’t decide their rulers at the ballot box. Instead, a fighting tournament will determine who inherits the crown and the task of leading the demons back to their former glory. The latest tournament of succession is going smoothly—except for the tiny detail that a former HUMAN hero named Helck just walked away victorious! Sure, Helck claims he hates humans as much as the next demon, but his new subjects aren’t so sure of his motivations. They send Red Vermilio, one of the Four Heavenly Demon Kings, to investigate Helck’s true intentions for the demon realm. The title of Demon King is at stake, and now the fate of the demon world is in Red’s demonic hands!
