>I thought it was supposed to be a gag manga.
>"It's a silly light-hearted fantasy comedy manga"
Oh anon. Try not to be caught in recent developments. Try to remember the fun times. Like Helck cheating at racing, the Silly mask, Azudora falling in his own traps, and all those fun times that are actually foreshadowing that the human race has been converted into insane monsters and Helck is the last survivor and he's slowly being consumed by his own darkness and will have to murder all those he loves. Oops, should have left off that last part.
Silly anon, Helck didn´t cheat, because he didn´t fall of his amazing dog, you are trying to bend the rules, aren´t you?
Also, even if an anime would ruin the fanbase, seeing the sad parts with a good adaptation could be amazing.
Humans seem evil because they have it tough, they are the weaker race and almost incapable of defend themselves against the monsters. And they are not evil as a whole, when they were about kill Alicia there was the hobo old man that told Helck that the medics wouldn´t treat a refugee like him being disgusted by the mob mentality (at least that it´s how I took his actitude)
I feel like Vamirio's reaction/Helck's recounting was handled somewhat awkwardly.
Of course it's awkward given that Vamirio is "Anne from Management", but it still feels like they were much more steely than was reasonable - especially given these are *recent events* to Helck; he shouldn't really be able to get through his story without losing the thread at least once.
Hoping that later emotional events are portrayed more "human"/pragmatically.
It's not rape if it's with Dark Schneider. Reminder that that fact is in-universe canon.
They are two people with steel resolve to go through this so the few good people still alive can be saved, they're not going to be crying everywhere.
remember Helck told this so Vamirio would be prepared for the worst?
Helck already broke down during his flash back. He has long since steeled himself. You're basically whining that Guts didn't break down on the fucking boat trip and cry like a little bitch when he gets reminded Casca still hates him and is crazy.
>You're basically whining that Guts didn't break down on the fucking boat trip
except he essentially did and almost drowned, then spent time thinking to himself about his loss
there's also a difference between recounting recent events to the one person you trust and silently remembering something that happened to you years ago
Are you talking about Vamirio?
She did have reactions through it, but mostly because of Helck's friendship with those people.
I doubt she really is all that worried about it, not like she liked humans and is sad that they are gone.
and Helck already cried/got depressed enough about this whole thing.
It's also different when recounting something while being steeled and resolved to die protecting your new friends than just crying like a little bitch to your new friends because you had none.
That's the reason why he was shocked for a moment when Vamirio told him he must live. He already had the mentality of a dead man with a mission.
hard to say
those guys are very likable and the author enjoys to make us and helck suffer, so there's that, but then again, maybe he just closed the book on them
maybe they still hang with Alicia as some sort of morbid reminder what they used to be
Zell still hangs with his former comrades, that mage guy and maybe that assassin a few chapters ago
It would be even worse if they still retain the old group dynamic, all cheerful and friendly, only with hatred towards demons
Slating a member of the royal family of a sovereign nation and his soldiers for execution isn't doing something wrong? Especially when Garithos had no legal or moral right to do so?
The council ruling Dalaran at the time shares in the blame as well for not helping the elves.
Hell the demons have it much harder.
They take the main brunt of the monster, poison corruption and new world shit and so.
They are that strong, because they could otherwise not survive.
in the same way garithos only cared about humans kael only cared about elves. Elves turned against their own race before, you bet your ass they would turn against humans as soon as they could
>Kael brings forces to help fight the zombies
>happens to get helped with no cost by naga
>Garithos sees, rants about treason
>sends Kael on suicide mission
>naga offer help again, Kael has no choice but to accept with no human help
>Garithos loses his shit again, accuses him of treason and locks his people up in the dungeon and planned to execute them with absolutely no authority to do so
>I hate working with these... people
Man he was a really fun character, too bad just like Arthas they fucked up big time.
elves were sluts for magix, ticking time bombs
Shit, this is actually good.
I did well by boarding the hype train while it was running.
Now that I think about it weren't there a fuck ton of elves in Dalaran?
You would think they would have been against having their last remaining prince, who fucking studied at Dalaran, as well as all the women and children who were with him butchered.
Azudora dream was to be friends with humans once again, that can´t happen if they all die at the end, so as I said in in other thread it´s possible that Azudora will use some contract and give his life to save the humans somehow, even if a great number of them doesn´t desrve it.
And even if he can live to see his dream, Helck will promise him that he will make it come true.
Such an asspull from the author, how disappointing.
THAT WAS BULLSHIT, I WAS YELLING AT THE SCREEN FOR FIVE GOD DAMN MINUTES STRAIGHT WHEN THAT SHIT WENT DOWN. even thinking about it made me flip my shit.
They had their chance. Going almost 20 years without learning anything original is a pretty big sin in an industry that thrives ideally thrives on innovation and creativity.
They just mistakenly believed their gimmick was the Midus Touch.
It ends like this
Vamirio is seen piercing Helck with the hero killer.
He is on his knees next to the corpse of the king, Rafaed, Mikaros and dozens of the winged soldiers.
As Helck is losing his consciousness, he thanks Anne for beeing there for him, for not letting him die alone and being the last he has to see and not the gruesome scene around him.
Vamirio is seen crying as the scene turns black.
Many years later, a girl maybe in her early twenties from her looks is on her way to visit someone.
Someone shouts after her "my lord please wait, you cannot simply leave now, you have important duties as one of the emperors guards".
The girl says she will and has to leave now.
She arrives at a small house in a remote part of the empire and knocks on the door.
A bird opens and they are happy to see each other, he says come in he was expecting you.
An old men lies on the bed and says it is good to see you one last time. They talk about their past, but we do not really get to hear what they talk about.
We get to hear this after some scenes of spending the evening together.
The girl and bird are cocking for the old men and eating with him on his bed side and so on.
>Every WoW expansion where they turn a character into a raid boss via muh insanity, or shit over the character's established characteristics
>That moment when Metzen takes over the reins and becomes Senior Vice President of Story and Franchise Development and doing all this bullshit.
Blizzard today is good only in two things: Cinematics and female models.
As the old men takes his last breaths he says "I know you have a lot do in your position, but thank you for coming. It was good to see you one last time Anne-chan, thank you for everything!".
The girl with a forced smile on her face, trying to save her composer says with tears coming from her eyes "Helck you knew you knew how I hate to be called that".
The old men dies and the girl seems to have trouble holding herself up says to the bird "come let us leave Piuy".
As they leave the house in the middle of the night a huge crowd is infront of the house and the girl falls to her knees.
Azudora of the four heavenly kings, Kenros, Hyura, simply everyone that had a connection to the three that spend the night together came, even the emperor himself.
Azudora said "when the emperor got told you simply disappeared he knew what was going on and immediatly summoned us, but you know we simply could not disturb that last moment of peace you three needed that moment for yourselfs Vamirio-chan".
The girl would usualy be angered by this, but did not even have the strength to argue.
They helped her up and took her among them, everyone bowed slightly in the direction of the house as they lit it on fire and let it burn.
The girl said "Helck, he was not our hero, he was not even born as one of us, but he was our comrade, our friend".
No one among them could really keep their composure.
Tears did seem to flow endlessly that night as they mourned the passing of a dear friend.
Please excuse my bad english, it is not my native language and it is late here already.
Tears did flow!
>Lots of technical prowess, zero substance ever since Panda cinematic which already had very little substance but was at least thematic and fitting
>best rendition is probably still Nova's ass and everything else is just a variation of it
>female faces are generic and nothing noteworthy
I think if their cinematics still had the same impact as before it would be a different story, but female models was a lost cause the moment Skyrim modding came into play.
Spineless and ball-less.
I'd rather if they died out and somebody competent takes over their titles...but then again ActiVision is still in control. And as long as that lamprey Kotick is around, there is no hope.
Nice asspull there.
Out of nowhere a little girl is suddenly one of the 4strongest elite heavenly king.
That's the very definition of spineless. Letting your family matters influence your work when you are at the top level of management of a multi million (or is it billion now?) company in regards to those kinds of decisions.
Imagine if JK Rowling's kid started to decide hating Harry Potter halfway because he disliked magic and liked martial arts, and then during the next novel Harry starts learning kung fu. Then over time, he gradually stops using magic, until he literally becomes the bane of wizards, and awakens as a super saiyan. Oh but he still has those dorky glasses and wears a wizard robe cause ya know, you wouldn't recognize him otherwise.
it'd be nice if my image posted
I don't believe it
I love how Helck is so surprised here, as if genuinely shocked by the reveal, and then it's like it's no big deal at all. Then again she continues after this so he doesn't get much of a chance to say much anyway.
Well she is most likely older age wise, but he is also right as she is in a young stage for her race.
The thing i she does not like to be treated like a kid, she is the serious kind of type.
She is definitely much older than Helck but her body is still immature due to the long elf race lifespan.
This is how she would look like in the future.
I want to lick Hyura's armpits.
no, obviously its fananon
The raws are only until 65~ chapters. That rello is doing such good work at such a high speed is the only reason anyone is caring about helck at the moment.
Once rello burns out or we run out of raws, everything will stop.
At this point with the huge downer flashback I think its fine to revert to the more comic atmosphere but the story still needs to respect the dark tone otherwise it will be S H I T.
Batoto has this image in the index of Helcks chapters.
Now, everytime i open it i feel sad.
Fuck, why didnt Helck at least kiss her.
We've hit a point where the story now has to balance out comedy and serious, which isn't easy to do. Beforehand there was plenty of comedy with the occasional serious moments, but now we know the ultimatum; if Helck kills the King, then humanity will basically perish and/or destroy everything around them. And the New World Organisms are a threat to Demonkind as well. Thus Helck, Vamirio and everyone else have to find a solution to both problems with real and valid danger likely to ramp up now.
They left all the serious stuff back at the flashback.
Even when they were seriously fighting with winged angel, we get top quality comedy like Edil wanting to bone Hyura and dogface
>go to sleep at almost 5 am
>wake up at noon after 7 or so hours of sleep
>got to lunch at an Uzbek place
>8 hours later realize that Rello was on around the time I was coming back from lunch posting new chapters
Also am I the only one who hopes that when Helck meets Alicia again it won't be more utter despair? I kind of want Helck to just march in and demolish the heroes and then end the king.
I don't even really care whether the humans live or not, I just want Helck to wreck them.
>people are trying to put Anne and Helck together as love interests
He calls her a little girl, I don't think Helck wants to bang her.
Elves are strong unlike in doujinshi where they became rapebait.
Just look at Hyura she is a slut through and through and only go after pretty boy like Edil. I see immense femdom potential here.
You've made Helck angry.
What the FUCK do you do to stay alive?
>Azudora wants to be friends with the humans again
>Helck kills every human except Cless's girlfriend
>both of them are friendly with demons
But Louise and Shana are objectively sexy
Vamirio is not
You're all fools.
Can't you realize it's the inmense power of Helck? He is the perfect defender, to the point that his soothing aura reaches through dimensions and stops your lewd thoughts before they form.
Only Hyura and the witch are slightly sexualized because their high powerlevel makes them somewhat resistant to his magic. As for Vamirio, it's obvious that she already fell in love with Helck.
Remember they are not really demons, that is just what the humans call them.
They have basically all the fantasy races on the continent and 15 of them came together under the dragon emperor and unified to create the empire.
All to be able to continue against the monster.
I just realized Helck ending badly is impossible unless the heroes disintegrate upon the king's death due to having died multiple times
Remember that Helck said the humans were held in check because of his power of rule and would go berserk without it? But that would only apply to the mindless ones.
Irregulars like Edil are already showing signs of resisting the king's control, so clearly if the king dies all of the irregulars will be fine- just 90% of humans will end up needing to be killed due to going berserk without someone with a brain to control the mindless ones.
The most logical conclusion would be the mindless ones won't get their minds back if Helck kills the king
If Edil is already able to resist the king's control without negative effects then we can reason that the ones who retained their minds will be fine, and at some point Edil will probably break free entirely which will be a twist that will give Helck some hope that he can get Alicia back
And then Alicia will somehow die permanently, because despair
Even with all this despair, I still think they will save humanity.
Of course, that doesn't mean everyone will survive, I'm sure some of Helck's friends will die, being Alicia the one with more chances.
The title "Demon King" is bestowed to someone who is sent to a remote outpost to guard again C class threat.
It is literally a security guard post. They just called it demon king to scam the unsuspecting civilian into signing the contract to be a one.
>Anne-chan smells like a grandma
Why was this included? Is it important?
Is he relating Anne to the "old hag" witch?
Don't make fun, maou inflation is a serious issue in some economies. One day it's 3000 kilis to the Super Saiyan and the next you can't even get a coffee for a Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan or Demon King of the Four Heavenly Kings
Please stop. If it is time travel then the entire story will suffer tremendously because it will bring up the question of why future Vamirio didn't just kill the king and Mikaros and Rafaed before they could enact their plans. Time travel will ruin Helck.
Mikaros and Rafaed were actually trying to open a path to a fucking remote island with nothing but a witch who look like and smell like Anne-chan from management and also has a grown up mascot character beside her like Piuy.
Hmm, I wonder why they want to go there.
>Witch knows of King and Archesage after it happens
>Helck is already with present Vamirio after the happening in human kingdom
either you are dumb or this is a silly way of trolling
The portal was supposed to be from the human world to the demon world.
They just got teleported to a random place.
This was clearly explained.
Coincidentally, which part of the gate creation failing and sending them to a random location did you miss in that chapter to think it's impossible they traveled through time?
Or a long lost relative cause time travel is a bitch to work into a story
Some can make it work in small doses but other times it act like a cancer and just kills the whole narrative
I'm talking about fucking time travel you fucking idiot
If the Witch is Anne from the future then that will make for shitty fucking writing because future-Anne (the Witch) would have been in a position to stop things from going to shit before they happened and would have chosen not to for some shitty shoehorned reason like "only Helck can change destiny" or something fucktard like that
Learn to fucking read
Also teleportation gates can't just malfunction and time travel that's stupid.
Yeah, why doesn't every time traveler try to stop Hitler? They should always be out to cause paradoxes that will always work out good always or it's a bad story.
Or you're dumber than you think and too big of a fuckhead to even properly criticize time travel plots by just squawking everything is shit.
Chrono trigger is a rare good story that used time travel well
A lot of of works just use it as a shitty gimmick and just become to convoluted to make sense of after they feature it
>travel to future
>go through fog and whirlpool back to the present
>ruins are actually the ruins of the empire in the future
This is one way to see it. It is not necessary for Witch-sama to be in the present.
>Helck will never get a big budget anime with great production values and perfectly-matched orchestrated soundtrack.
Ura sunday is a literal noname magazine. Forget about challenging WSJ, it is even below shit like gangan joker or even alphapolis.
You literally cannot name one anime from that magazine.
>manga that loves to foreshadow things
>witch-sama looked a bit like you
I don't think it's time travel either. Possibly a family member of Anne's and is able to see into possible futures or some shit like that./spoiler]
Sorry bitch but your Serbian ain't nearly as much of a genius you purport him to be. If he was so smart he wouldn't have to deal with the bullshit that is the patent wars by sheer virtue of being ahead of everyone else.
>FUCKING TIME TRAVEL SHOULDN'T BE IN STORIES IN THE FIRST FUCKING PLACE
You said that but half of the top rated eroge in egs are time travel/parallel world/loop story.
Even one of the most successful anime of this decade is a story that use timeloop.
Why do you post without reading the previous posts I made
I was saying it shouldn't be in stories in the first place because it's a shitty thing to use. At no point did I contradict myself.
To be fair, Chrono Trigger is pretty much entirely based around time travel compared to some stories just liberally throwing it in for a stable time loop most of the time, and even then Trigger doesn't try to be ultra-complex or deep and thoughtful about it and even has a few bits that make no sense but get handwaved as an entity behind time itself being responsible.
People think it's time travel because who wouldn't recognize their own parent (or which parent wouldn't tell their child who they are)? And have you seen how similar they are? Plus the bird. The bird is really the deciding factor I think.
But it's a good point about the omake, too.
>Plus the bird. The bird is really the deciding factor I think.
On the same island where Piuy lives in the first place. Not unreasonable to think there might be more than one bird there.
>it will bring up the question of why future Vamirio didn't just kill the king and Mikaros and Rafaed before they could enact their plans.
Don't tell others to read your brain damaged posts when you can't read them yourself. You're not cute like Vermilio when you get worked up without being part of a joke, you're just a nonsensical dumbass with irritable bowel syndrome.
>Anne from management is actually Vamirio the entire time
I-is this the power of a Lord?
Literally everybody has thought of it. But then there would be little to talk about. See if you can stop raging for a sec and recognize when people are just entertaining themselves. In a thread about entertainment. Bizarre, I know.
YOU RETARD THE MANGA SAID VAMIRIO WAS ANNE WHY DOES NOBODY GET IT I WISH EVERYBODY WAS AS SMART AS ME FUCK YOU YOU'RE RUINING THIS THREAD IT'S TORTURE WHAT ARGUMENT I'M NOT BUTTHURT SHUT UP
His last post he said he would "be back later" so I guess he will dump at least one more chapter today.
So... Tooru was one of those twisted into awakening?
How powerful would a awaken Demon King be?
I thought a normal hero, Cless, was not that strong because he could barely beat a Demon King, but Tooru was awaken, so Cless should be close to the power of a Heavenly King.
to be fair the only thing we have powerlevel wise to compare cless too is helck, now helck has been said to be stronger then cless by cless himself, but that doesn't mean all that much.
mind you cless survives all kinds of shit and is technically still "alive" so my bet is your right on the mark there.
Well we don't know much about what happens to demons when they awaken. At the moment I'm guessing that the new world organisms are demons that were forced to awaken. Meaning that while stronger, Anne-chan could easily beat.
You don't know the half of it. Every name is named after something from mythology and we just can't tell because they haven't been de-romanized.
Helck and Cless being Hercules is the obvious one.
Vamirio (Vermilio) is the Vermilion Bird. Azudora (Azura) is the Azure Dragon. The Four Heavenly Kings are the quartet of Chinese beasts.
Kenros is kentauros (centaur) which is why he runs fast. Hyura is Hydra so she regenerates.
The bad guys, Mikalos and Rafaed, are Michael and Raphael, which is why they command angels.
The demon king candidates are all around upper 39's to upper 40's, I think. Vamirio was 79. So yeah, definitely the level of a Heavenly King, especially since he looked pretty beat up by the end (as I'm sure Helck would still have had an easy-ish time winning).
Also Japan likes referencing Anne of Green Gables, where it's retitled Redhaired Anne. The author must have had fun with that.
Tooru is probably Thor. The two linked sisters Asuta and Isuta are likely Astarte and Ishtar, different names for the same goddess. Along with the Four Heavenly Kings, the high ranked demons seem to have a pagan god theme going while the regulars are mythical creature names.
One of the ones I can't tell except that he's spelled like Japanese for kiwi, usually the fruit. So it could be spelled Piwi.
But if that references anything beyond him being a cute gag mascot pseudo-bird, no clue.
Vamillio- Vermilion Bird
feng shui element -fire
Azudora- Azul(blue) + dora(dragon)
feng shui element- wood
so we might have black turtle character who focuses on defense and water/ice magic
and possibly more militant tiger character with metal powers
90% of the sentient non-infected races are goofballs. Whether it was the mercenaries, the islanders, the pigs, or the Empire in general.
The only ones mostly in despair were the humans that couldn't fight, and well that's understandable they didn't even have a snowballs chance for the most part.
At least guys like the mercenaries have a decent survival rate so they could afford to have an optimistic mentality to the perils. Your average farmer is totally fucked.
Just like the timetravelfags, some people just made their own headcanon that the empire's people are a bunch of different non-demon races and are just labeled demons by their enemies. You might argue whatever, they'll stick to it even if the author confirms they're demons.
Was he really? I don't remember them saying his power level. Hyura was practically at the top of the ones shown. Kendros is the amazing one, he's only 38 and he still manages to hang in there when Edil is like 36 or something.
>black turtle character who focuses on defense and water/ice magic
Not necessarily. The Black Turtle is also called the Black Warrior or the Emperor of True Martial Arts, so he could be an awesome fighter. Most Black Turtle references don't have this but it would be cool.
Because that's the actual color representing the elements?
Black Turtle is water.
Green/Azure Dragon is wood.
Red/Vermilion Phoenix is fire
White Tiger is Metal.
Yellow Dragon/the Emperor is Earth.
>Implying the Emporer of the massive Demon Empire can only use one element.
He will be able to use all of them and some kind of special OP as fuck Dragon only magic as well.
I mean the guy is in charge of the strongest nation for a reason.
His scale might just be much larger though. We have no idea how they erect barriers so far, but it wouldn't surprise me if the Emperor was responsible for most if not all of them.
Take heart, fellow anons. We'll use meme-magic to grant Helck an anime, just like we did with Watamote.
Everybody grab your cameras and whip 'em out/spoiler]
We're saying that because the Yellow Dragon is also one of the elements. If Vermillion and Azure exist and have their standard elements, there's no reason he wouldn't be earth.
Lightning has been associated with Earth quite a lot. But sticking true to the original, earth is not lightning.
Lightning's appearances are usually as a punishing force, sometimes related to Taoism.
Well, unlike the time travel theory, it's at least not completely baseless. We know that the Empire is a union of 15 different kingdoms. It's plausible that each kingdom was a different race, so the Empire's population is now a mix of those original 15.
Tooru is one of the ways they pronounce Thor, and the higher ups seem to have god names.
If the Four Heavenly Kings continue to take their English names, we could make predictions on what gets derived from White Tiger and Black Tortoise to pass the time.
The tricky part is how much ends up engrish. Hydra in Japan is pronounced like Hyudora, hence Hyura. Kerberos becomes Keruberos, hence Ruberos the dog man with hand puppets.
Personally I find that the engrish makes it more enjoyable than just slapping on the names 1:1 style. It certainly fits the silly art style that the Demon Empire has going for them.
One of the biggest mysteries is what Doruushi is derived from. While most of the other civilians have Greek creature names, he's the team oddball who looks and acts thematically off. The shaved head and meditation barrier powers make me think he's one of the Asian-themed ones instead.
the time travel theory would explain the weird bullshit the had to sail thru to get back, though would the locating magic work? but the whole forcing Piuy on her and with the stunning reveal we know Vamiro is a master of disguise and bluffing and could easily fool Anne from management.
Ura Sunday is different from Weekly Shounen Sunday.
Weekly Shounen Sunday has all the big series like Conan, Kenichi, Inuyasha and etc. Noname manga get sent to the sister publication Ura Sunday magazine.
Like it or not, mindless and casual stories are much easier to keep up with on a weekly basis. Everybody looks for comfortable consistency on some level whether they admit it or not.
Helck gained an advantage with us English speakers thanks to Rello presenting it all at once, but that's going away once we catch up. It's a pretty good series. Let's hope the fanbase doesn't immediately dry up.
Vamirio has barely showed up anymore since the beginning while Anne-chan has pretty much become the main heroine of the story. Vamirio was probably just an irrelevant gag character from the start whom the author quickly forgot.
Yuusha trap is actually good and has been consistently funny 40chapters in.
It doesn't lose to Helck at all. Sadly the comedy for Helck has dried up and it failed to put me at stitches like in the beginning. With the flashback over, I hope we are back onto the comedy train.
Why don't they kill the king, move the empire, and have the awakened humans fight the monsters?
The most important aspect to Helck is mot for it's comedy, but it's build up and fleshing out characters. It creates many likable characters with their own aspects and having a deep, rich story that continues to impress me. Therefore, I feel that Helck is the greater manga when it comes to the story.
Both Yuusha ga Shinda! and Helck are great fantasy adventure manga but for different reasons.
>Card and castle building challenge
>They thought Helck would be bad at it but he's actually really good at it.
>"Crap, this was actually his specialty!"
>A Number of chapters later, turns out he was a laborer and worked on the human castle building and refortification
This manga man.
Anne-chan turning out to be someone special ruins my theory that she was the demon equivalent of a hero, someone seemingly a normal part of management but explaining why she is so powerful.
>introduced as an extreme parody of those supposedly powerful good characters who are too busy dying from an incurable illness or something like that to do anything productive
>ends up as the best bossu
No wonder the Empire is still great and kicking even after thousands of years, Demons sure know how to find the right people to manage it.
Well, even Vamirio said that with the right conditions Azudora is the strongest member of the Four Kings, trying to fight this guy in the human world where plants are everywhere would be almost impossible. He is pretty much limited by the fact that his territory almost has no plants, also I am pretty sure that the roots trick used against the winged soldiers is just a basic attack.
I suppose that he is the oldest and wisest member of the Four Heavinly Kings. I wonder if they have a most violent guy in the group, Valmirio was talking about attacking humans, but only because they attacked first, but the thing is there is one of them that hates human as much as humans hate them, the Akainu of the group for saying an example.
It was Hon the secretary who said that, I think.
Vamirio-chan is the most kindest and most responsible. Another good example of Demons (or their leadership) knowing who they should put in charge.
It is obvious that the demon empire does not have a caste system like the humanity or even any racism even with their diverse range of races. I mean a filthy blue elf is their fucking brigade leader.
Hon said it, but Valmirio said it too in this page, the thing is that Azudora power depends too much of external factors that he can only control if he has time to prepare traps and put plants around the kingdom.
The fact that he lives in a toxix wasteland without almost natural plants (he had to put them personally) plays against him, in the Human World he would be a beast.
I suppose that the Dragon emperor is in the capital with his two guardians, while one of the remaining members of the Four Kings is fighting the northen enemies with a pretty big army, Azudora said that the 60% of the Empire Troops are there fighting
Depends on whether or not there's anything special going on with the trees in the Empire's territory. For example, it could be like the Sacred Tree from Nanatsu no Taizai. The fairies can control any kind of plant life to fight, but the Sacred Tree is just humongous, can regenerate from damage quickly, and can grow to attack however its controller wants.
So even if Azudora can control any kind of tree or plant life, if his power is to only control it and not impart some kind of special quality to it, trees in other territories might not be that special.
That's only his First Ability anyway. He also seems to have other talents.
