Heavy, one of the Metal Family‘s characters Helluva Boss (Heavy) an actual Instagram account where he posts honest images from his life. This helps viewers to become more involved in the show. There’s also an official store where you can buy show-related stuff.
Metal Family’s voice acting and animation were fascinating. The characters were complex enough and not clichés, which piqued my interest in what was to follow. Finally, I’d suggest this series to anybody who likes funny and strong characters, music, and exciting storytelling.
