Take a peek at the first trailer released for Record of Ragnarok II:
7 Million Years of Human Civilization is coming to an end… Every 1000 years, all the Gods of the world gather in heaven to attend the “Conference of Mankind Survival”. All the Gods agree to bring an ultimate end to mankind due to their past foolish acts but before the final verdict is made, Brunhild, the eldest of the 13 Valkyrie sisters makes an objection.
“To spice things up, why donʼt you test humans?”
Her proposal was to have God vs Humanityʼs final struggle also known as the “Ragnarok”, where all the Gods from the world and champions from the entire human history enter a 1 on 1 battle. The first team to win 7 battles out of 13 will be the winner.
It seems almost impossible for the humans to win against the Gods. Although Gods sneer at them, Brunhild makes further provocation;
“Are you chickening out?”
That touches God's nerves and they accept her proposal in anger. Therefore, Brunhild and her sisters must choose 13 of the strongest champions throughout the human history.
Don't miss out on season 2, being released on January 26th!
About Record of Ragnarok
Shinya Umemura, Ajichika, and Takumi Fukui are the writers and illustrators of the Japanese manga series Record of Ragnarok. The series is an adaptation of the Norse story of Ragnarok, the end of the world, in which the gods and other mythological beings must battle the forces of destruction. The story follows the most powerful humans and gods and goddesses of Norse mythology as they fight to determine the fate of humanity. In Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, the manga has been serialized since December 2019, and as of January 2021, twelve tankobon volumes have been released.
The Norse gods and goddesses gather in Record of Ragnarok to decide the destiny of mankind and the entire planet. The gods dispute over whether to kill the world through Ragnarok or to allow humanity to continue. The gods decide that the best way to resolve the conflict is through a series of battles between themselves and a group of 13 people known as the "Chosen Ones," who have been chosen to fight for all of humanity.
The manga has received praise from both critics and readers for its original retelling of the Norse epic of Ragnarok, its detailed and innovative artwork, and its character development and storytelling.
The anime version of Record of Ragnarok debuted on June 17, 2021. It was created by Graphinica, led by Masao Okubo, and included a script by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu and music by Kenichiro Suehiro.
