In October 2020, Rajan Zed, the president of the Universal Society of Hinduism Rajan, made a statement addressed to Coamix, criticizing the depiction of Hindu deities in manga and urged the company “not to trivialize Lord Shiva and other highly revered Hindu gods and goddesses in its manga publications”. The anime received backlash for its depiction of Shiva by a large group of Indian Americans, calling the series “highly disturbing to them” as it trivializes the deity. To avoid further criticism, Netflix altered the trailer to remove Shiva, and later removed the anime itself from its streaming library in India.

But the valkyrie Brunhilde proposes giving humanity one last chance to prove their worth and the gods agree to hold the tournament of Ragnarök, where humanity will be spared if they can best the gods in seven out of thirteen matches. Humanity’s representatives are the Einherjar, notable humans across history who are each granted a valkyrie who becomes a powerful weapon tailored for their user’s combat style called “Volund”, at the risk of losing her life if the user is killed.On June 17, 2021, Viz Media announced that they had licensed the series for English release in North America. It will be released in digital starting in fall 2021 and in print starting in spring 2022.

Record of Ragnarok (Japanese: 終末のワルキューレ, Hepburn: Shūmatsu no Warukyūre, lit. “Doomsday Valkyrie”) is a Japanese manga series written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui and illustrated by Ajichika about a fighting tournament featuring prominent historical figures against gods from various mythologies, with the fate of mankind in the balance. It began in Coamix’s (formerly also published by Tokuma Shoten) seinen manga magazine Monthly Comic Zenon in November 2017. It was licensed in North America by Viz Media in June 2021. The manga was adapted as an original net animation (ONA) by Graphinica and premiered on Netflix in June 2021. A second season by Graphinica and Yumeta Company premiered in January 2023.
A spin-off manga titled Shūmatsu no Valkyrie: Ryo Fu Hō Sen Hishōden (終末のワルキューレ異聞 呂布奉先飛将伝) was serialized in Monthly Comic Zenon from October 25, 2019, to November 25, 2022. Its chapters have been collected into individual tankōbon volumes. The first volume was released on April 20, 2020. As of December 20, 2022, seven volumes have been released.If the Gods win the Ragnarok, Humanity’s fate is sealed and it will be extinguished. However, if the Humans win, they will gain the right to live for another 1000 years.
As the Gods were deciding on mankind’s destruction, Brunhilde took the Humans’ side and suggested the start of Ragnarok. All of the Gods rejected the idea until Brunhilde insulted their pride as they agreed. The mere suggestion that they feared direct conflict with mortals caused such anger among the Gods that they decided to accept Brunhilde’s proposition, if only to put her in her place. Thus began Ragnarok, the final confrontation between Man and God.
As Ragnarok is a battle between souls, those who die in the fights have their souls destroyed and turned to ashes, being impossible to save or retrieve the soul, this impedes the reincarnation cycle, therefore, resulting in complete extinction.The rules are quite simple. Each side picks thirteen fighters, who will fight one-on-one fights to the death and the winning side is the one that gets seven victories first.
As the super special clause was originally added as a joke in the Valhalla Constitution and never meant to be taken seriously, it created loopholes that both teams took advantage or might take advantage of:Godly Durability: Adam, despite still being just a Human, possesses unparalleled and unfathomable durability surpassing that of most Supreme Gods. Even after losing his eyesight and greatest weapon, Adam was capable of withstanding a barrage of attacks from Zeus and even managed to trade blows with him. Those attacks were from Zeus’ True God’s Right/Left, which were described as being an unavoidable one-hit kill by Brunhilde. Despite Zeus being stated to be powerful enough to destroy the entirety of Heaven in his Adamas form, Adam was capable of taking multiple hits from the King of the Gods.
In fact, Adam’s desire to protect his descendants was so intense that, even after dying from the countless blows of Zeus, his body refused to fall and instead kept fighting on. Such raw endurance and strength of will were enough to put Zeus himself on his knees and even gain a bit of begrudging respect from the arrogant God. Even in death, he selflessly strove for victory, not for his sake but for that of his children, for all of mankind.
Adam’s love for his children was strong enough that, even in a battle for his life, he only thought of protecting Humanity from anyone who’d try and do them harm.
Who won in Ragnarok?
Thor then beheads Lü Bu with his hammer, sealing the first victory for the gods.
Godly Beauty: As a being created in the image of the Gods, Adam possesses divine beauty and is far more attractive than most mortals. He is so beautiful that even the Goddess of Beauty, Aphrodite, appreciated his naked appearance.Enhanced Charisma: Adam has displayed immense charisma, through his noble ambitions and determination he managed to touch the hearts of all of Humanity, making them put their differences aside and pray for his victory. This feat was so impressive that even the prideful Gods praised him for it.
Overall Abilities: As the first and original man created in the image and likeness of a God, Adam was considered by Brunhilde to be her “Trump Card” against the Gods. Adam might perhaps be the most powerful Human in history, being able to go toe to toe with and nearly defeating the chairman of the Gods’ Council and champion of the Titanomachy, Zeus. Upon witnessing Adam’s power, Ares shamefully admitted that he’d be no match for him, even if he were to train for a thousand years; Zeus himself also stated that if their battle was instead a contest of endurance and not a death match, Adam would’ve undoubtedly bested him.
Keen Intellect: Adam was skilled and smart enough to use strategies in order to gain an advantage in battle, managing to trick Zeus into punching him so he could accurately catch the position of the former when blind.Indomitable Will: Adam possessed the strongest will of mankind as stated by Brunhilde; he never once faltered in his battle, always remaining steadfast in the face of Zeus’s onslaught. His powerful willpower grants him immense pain tolerance and allows him to exert himself beyond his limits, allowing him to continue fighting even after becoming blind.
Adam is a very calm, collected, and carefree individual; speaking to Zeus in a very casual manner, much to the chagrin of the other Gods present. He’s even shown to be disrespectful of the latter like when he bit multiple apples and spit them on the floor, not caring about the Gods’ concern. He was also quite confident in his capabilities, informing Zeus that he’d regret not using a weapon in their fight. Later, it is revealed that Adam holds no grudge against Heaven and the Gods, despite the fact the Serpent assaulted Eve and then framed her when he was elsewhere, resulting in Humanity’s banishment from Eden. Adam is also ruthless in defending those dear to him, mercilessly striking down the Serpent and brutally attacking his creators.Godly Strength: Adam possesses immeasurable and unfathomable physical strength, capable of harming the likes of Zeus with his punches. With assistance from Divine Reflection, Adam was able to twist Zeus’ neck with a single punch. Even without the usage of his special eyes, Adam was strong enough to break the floor of the Valhalla Arena, with his base strength alone, without putting any effort.
Godly Endurance & Stamina: Adam has displayed immeasurable and unparalleled endurance and stamina, he was capable of exerting himself far beyond his physical and mental limits. Throughout the duration of his fight with a God, Adam never showed any signs of fatigue, despite the countless blows exchanged during the fight. Even after being hit multiple times during his match and even losing his eyesight, Adam still managed to stay conscious and continue fighting while showing little to no sights of pain.
Adam is the progenitor of Humanity. He is the first Human to ever exist, being created in the image and likeness of the Gods. After being expelled from Paradise along with his wife Eve, the two descended to Earth and proceeded to give rise to Humanity.Unarmed Combat Proficiency: Adam possesses a natural talent in the art of unarmed combat, making him capable of defeating most opponents despite having little to no training. He was able to compete with Zeus, who is also a very skilled unarmed combatant, and managed to copy multiple of his techniques (with the assistance from Divine Reflection). While he seems to prefer using his fists, to the point that his volund weapon became a knuckleduster, Adam is more than capable of using his legs in order to defeat his opponents.
Adam takes the form of a short, young and muscular man with supreme beauty that even aroused the Gods. Adam has platinum-blond hair, and big sky blue eloquent eyes. When he lived in the Garden of Eden with Eve, he was fully naked, but when he was exiled to Earth, he covered his groin with a single classical fig leaf covering. He is often seen holding or eating an apple, and in his battle against Zeus, he wears a divine knuckleduster in his right hand.Golden Age: As a Human soul in the afterlife, Adam possesses the appearance and skills that he had during his Golden Age, the age in which he was at his peak.
Animal Intuition: As the first man, Adam was created to rule over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground. Because of this, most animals appear to be naturally friendly towards Adam. This was best seen during his entrance in the second round, where a bunch of animals (both carnivores and herbivores) helped him make his entrance. Another example was seen during his time in the Garden of Eden, where Adam was able to rest on top of a bear while a variety of wild animals peacefully surrounded him. Adam also seems to be capable of talking with animals, since he was able to learn that the Serpent had molested Eve from two birds.
Godly Speed & Reflexes: Adam possesses unparalleled speed and reflexes, no other character has been shown to be faster than him thus far. Adam was capable of dodging all of Zeus’s attacks, which were being launched within a very small time-frame of 0.00000001 seconds. He was then later able to dodge and counter Zeus’s The Fist That Surpassed Time, a punch so fast and powerful that it is believed that time itself comes to a halt when it’s use. The attack was launched within a very small time-frame of less than 0.000000000000000000001 seconds, and none of the other Gods were able to see due to occurring in an instant. It is worth noting that Zeus himself is not able to dodge this attack, since both Adam and Kronos have managed to hit him with it and due to the very nature of this attack, Adam might be faster than light or even possess infinite speed for being the only character capable of dodging The Fist That Surpassed Time.
This can not be prevented now and it destroys Hades’ weapon Desmos. Desmos spread like a broom in front of the Sword of Goujian. Then Huang attacked Hades fatally and that lead him to win the seventh round of the Ragnarok. Humans now lead the battle with a score of 4-3.
In the last chapter, we saw the seventh-round winner after a long fight between Hades and Qin Shi Huang. They both gave their hundred percent but there were some tiny things and Alvito’s help that made Huang the winner. At some time we all thought that Huang is over and he can no longer fight but he pulled it all through.
Alvito asked Huang what he was going to do and then Huang used Rikitenhou to believe in him. Now for their final attacks, Hades moved first and Huang took the hit directly while trying to absorb the attack using an air bullet.
Unfortunately for Lu Bu, his title as the strongest doesn’t actually hold up well. His fight against Thor was the most one-sided fight in the favor of the god’s team. Lu Bu lacks diverse abilities like other fighters, and his strongest attack could only be used a single time — and it had little effect on Thor.
Zeus didn’t have anything capable of defeating Adam, but he was able to win due to exploiting Adam’s weakness. Zeus had enough perseverance to survive until Adam was incapable of fighting any longer.
Shiva is the strongest of the Hindu gods. None of the others were ever able to match his true power. Raiden was the first person he had ever fought that was a nearly even match for him. Shiva survives more deadly attacks and has more willpower than Heracles. He lost three arms and sacrificed a lot of his energy to win.Poseidon is, however, the first god seen to be defeated by a human. That doesn’t mean he’s weak, but it does prove that there are humans with abilities that can overthrow the gods.
Who is the 2nd strongest in Record of Ragnarok?
Record Of Ragnarok: 10 Strongest Characters, Ranked1 Zeus — Father Of The Cosmos.2 Adam — Father Of Humanity. … 3 Kojiro Sasaki — The World’s Greatest Loser. … 4 Jack The Ripper — Infamous Serial Killer. … 5 Poseidon — King Of The Seas. … 6 Thor — Thunder Berserker. … 7 Shiva — God Of Destruction. …
While Shiva only barely beat Raiden, Thor obliterated Lu Bu. Even Lu Bu’s mighty sky-splitting attack wasn’t able to severely hurt Thor. Additionally, Thor’s mighty Mjolnir is one of the better weapons used by a fighter.His biggest weakness appears to be his defensive capabilities. Most fighters in the Ragnarok survive brutal attacks that tear their bodies to pieces, but Heracles lost after a very simple attack that doesn’t compare to the damage others received.
The world’s best swordsman may not have a great track record of winning fights, but that has nothing to do with his skill. Throughout his life, he would forfeit every match. His fight with Poseidon was the first time he completed a duel with an opponent. Kojiro has trained his mind to predict fights thousands of times over in a single second.
Thor never has to go all out, so it’s unsure how strong he truly is. The reason he ranks below other fighters on this list is due to them having more useful abilities or writing that makes them likely to be able to defeat Thor.Record of Ragnarok contains many powerful humans from all over the world and many gods from numerous mythologies. These powerful characters fight to the death to determine the fate of humankind.
His newfound strength allows him to fight on almost equal footing as godly figures like Shiva. Like Lu Bu, Raiden’s lack of abilities other than his raw strength holds him back.
In Record of Ragnarok’s continuity, Heracles started as a human that became a god after drinking Zeus’s blood. This godly boost certainly made him stronger than regular humans. Multiple gods on the sidelines consider Heracles a very strong figure among them, but he doesn’t quite live up to the best of the best.
Sumo wrestler Raiden was never able to use his full strength before the Ragnarok. This means Lu Bu is stronger than Raiden in a sense, but Raiden was able to unlock his true potential, thanks to the Valkyrie.
His might compared to the other gods is undeniable. Heracles is only as strong as he is due to obtaining a fraction of Zeus’s strength, Shiva was scared to fight him, and he is essentially the leader of all the gods in Record of Ragnarok.
This allows him to predict any and all of his opponent’s attacks even before they plan to execute them. Even after dying, Kojiro trained his mind in the afterlife. He represents humanity’s ultimate potential to evolve constantly, leaving few foes capable of defeating him. With enough time, he may even surpass those higher on this list due to his infinite potential, but as is, there are two that would surely defeat him. Adam was even able to dodge and learn The First That Surpasses Time, which moves faster than time itself. This implies he has infinite speed. Adam’s single weakness is he can overextend The Eyes of the Lord. If he uses it too much back-to-back, it will ultimately result in his death. Rocks, entire buildings, his own blood, and much more can become fatal to most opponents. Jack is also a very cunning figure that knows how to tell believable lies. Very few characters would be able to defeat him in most circumstances.Jack the Ripper is one of the most well-known serial killers in history. In Record of Ragnarok, his unique power involves turning any object he touches into a Divine Weapon. The power to turn any object into a god-slaying weapon is one of the most useful abilities any character in the anime has shown off this far.Lu Bu is a Chinese warrior that was called the world’s strongest human at the start of the series. His backstory backs this statement up by showing him splitting the sky in half with one spear swing.
Who is the strongest human in Ragnarok?
Humanity’s first champion, Lu Bu, is the fiercest human warrior. During his life, he was the strongest person in China’s legendary Three Kingdoms Period, and during Ragnarok went toe to toe with Thor, the strongest Norse God.
Poseidon somewhat acts as the leader of the Greek gods. Very few were willing to stand up to him, and those that did were erased from history. Poseidon showcases some of the fastest attacks used by the gods. If he fought anyone lower on the list, he would very likely claim victory.The original human was given the best superpower in the series. The Eyes of the Lord allows Adam to instantly learn any attack he sees. He also has the ability to dodge attacks that move thousands of times faster than the speed of light.
Day (She/Her) is a massive RPG fan who has played most Square Enix, Monolithsoft, and Nintendo games. Her favorite series are Dragon Quest and Xeno. She also loves NieR, Pokemon, Zelda, and many other series. Some of her favorite anime are Bleach, Dragon Ball Z, and JoJo.Shiva was stated to be able to create or destroy a planet on a whim. That said, he isn’t as strong as other deities in Record of Ragnarok. Zeus’s base form strength scares him, and none of the other gods were as close to their human opponents in terms of physical strength.
What is the 7th fight in the Ragnarok record?
The seventh round of Ragnarok is between the King of the Netherworld, Hades and The King Where It All Began, Qin Shi Huang. The eighth round of Ragnarok is between the Lord of the Flies, Beelzebub and Human History’s One and Only Sorcerer, Nikola Tesla.
Record of Ragnarok is a Japanese anime sci-fi and fantasy series directed Masao Okubo. It based on the manga created by Azychika, Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui. The first season of Record of Ragnarok was released on June 17, 2021. The show is produced by Warner Bros.Hades, King of the Netherworld, has lost. In the fallout of this absolutely unforeseeable outcome, both the losers (the Gods) and the victors (mankind) were at a loss for words. Still in disbelief and calling this an unimaginable upset, Heimdall declares the winner of the ultimate King-vs-King battle was The King Where It All Began, Qin Shi Huang. In response, Humanity all erupt with cheers. In other words, Desmos was alive and since it was alive, Qin Shi Huang could see its “star”. Hrist gets that Qin Shi Huang hit Desmos with Tortoise Ripple to weaken Hades’ killer strike but doubts that would’ve been enough to destroy the spear. Soji adds that Qin Shi Huang used Hades’ own power against him. Realising he’s talking about Heavenly Hand of Defense, Hrist does remember seeing Qin Shi Huang use it but doesn’t believe it did anything. Kojiro explains that normally, Heavenly Hand of Defense takes an attack from one’s opponent and then circulates it through one’s own body to send it back at their opponent. But right then, Qin Shi Huang took the force of Hades’ attack and stored it inside of Alvitr (as the Goujian Sword), who had become one with him through Völundr. Taking the lollipop out of his mouth, Buddha finds the place to be great because of the fresh air, only to jolt up as he feels his body throbbing. With the two birds very startled, Buddha guesses he should’ve stayed in his room a little longer. Someone approaches and sighs about how they knew they’d find Buddha here. Leaning against the tree, Buddha admits he didn’t expect the figure to be here, calling him “Kin-chan”. It’s revealed to be a fighter for Humanity, Sakata Kintoki. Kintoki tells Buddha not to sneak out of his sickroom without telling anyone and feels sorry for the medical team that are looking around for him. When Buddha says the sickroom is too boring, Kintoki compares him to a child.Sweating, Brunhilde says she cannot tell him that and Adamantine decides he doesn’t need her alive. He swings his left hand at her and Göll tries to cover for Brunhilde, only for them all to be surprised when Adamantine’s left hand is suddenly cut off. Looking back, Adamantine tells Beelzebub to stay out of his way. Walking forward, Beelzebub points out that Ragnarok would be over if Brunhilde died and he warns Adamantine not to deprive him of his enjoyment. Adamantine doesn’t care and the two stand off against each other.
Elsewhere, in a dilapidated part of the Valhalla Arena, there is a door labelled “Do Not Use”. Inside, Brunhilde and Göll look through a glass screen. On the other side are both Qin Shi Huang and Alvitr, each stored inside a recovery pod. Leaning her face against the glass, Göll hopes that Alvitr and Qin Shi Huang will be alright. One doctor says that, putting Alvitr aside, Qin Shi Huang is in a critical condition. What will happen now will depend on his own will to live. After they leave that room, Göll expresses how amazed she is that the two won Round 7. As they go up some stairs, Göll raves about how they beat Hades and took the lead. As Brunhilde stays silent, they come out onto an open bridge and Göll fist-pumps about how if they get 3 more wins, then they’ll be able to win Ragnarok. Following her into a different tower, Göll asks Brunhilde where they’re going. Now in a hallway lined with statues of knights, Brunhilde reveals she wants to check up on Buddha.
Just when it seems like they might fight, Beelzebub asks Adamantine if he intends to belittle the dignity of the Gods that Hades had exuded in his fight. Thinking of his brother, Adamantine insists he doesn’t care, only to start walking away. Putting his mask back on, Adamantine swears to kill both Brunhilde and Qin Shi Huang, once Ragnarok is over. Letting out a sigh of relief, Göll falls to the floor and admits she thought they were gonna die. As Beelzebub goes to pick up Adamantine’s severed hand, Brunhilde thanks him for coming to their aid. Beelzebub suddenly warns Brunhilde to be careful and as he holds up the severed hand, Beelzebub expresses how he doubts he and Adamantine are the only Gods who wish to wipe out all of Humanity and are finding it hard to control that urge. Odin and an angered Loki are shown while he says this.Alvitr remarks on how it sure doesn’t look like she shouldn’t worry and has Qin Shi Huang sling his arm over her. As they walk towards the exit, Alvitr says they should go to the medbay together before calling it a miracle that they’re even alive right now. Qin Shi Huang disagrees with Alvitr and reminds her that he told her to trust him. Alvitr says that Qin Shi Huang really is stupid, only to repeat it as he begins leaning on her. Just when Alvitr complains that he’s too heavy, Qin Shi Huang falls to the ground, which causes Alvitr to exclaim his real name in a panic. Heimdall then shouts for paramedics and having seen him collapse, Kojiro says that he’s out of energy but that was still a shocker, which Soji agrees with.A while after, Heimdall recounts how both Round 6 and Round 7 have led to consecutive wins for mankind. Now, the score stands at 4-3. Heimdall proclaims the impossible has finally happened – mankind has taken the lead over the Gods before declaring the fighting stage is currently undergoing a first-class makeover, specially made for Round 8.Buddha smiles back and calls Kintoki an icon. Kintoki questions what Buddha wants him to do and Buddha says he wants Kintoki to look into someone. Kintoki asks who it is and Buddha says it is the man who will shake up Ragnarok – the Dragon-Slaying Hero, Siegfried.
Who does Brunhilde end up with?
The Story of Brunhild is that she is a Valkyrie and the daughter of Odin. She disobeys Odin and is condemned to marry. The hero, Sigurd, marries her, and variations of the story all end up with Sigurd dead.
Holding a cheering Chun Ou in her arms, Chun Yan looks ahead with a proud smile, all while Heimdall questions whether or not this is all a dream, reality or a nightmare. The Gods can’t believe Hades lost, with some even falling to their knees. The Goujian Sword deforms and reverts back into Alvitr, whose body is wounded all over. She falls forward but Qin Shi Huang catches her before she can hit the ground. He then winces as the pain of Alvitr’s shoulder wound is seared onto him. Alvitr tells Qin Shi Huang not to push himself since he’s more banged up than her but Qin Shi Huang replies with “Moumantai”.Hrist understands that Qin Shi Huang then converted the force of Hades’ attack inside of Alvitr into power that allowed him to destroy Desmos. Hrist admits she was worried about Qin Shi Huang and Alvitr when they were paired up but it looks like they ended up having really great chemistry. Kojiro compliments Alvitr for being able to put up with storing that much power, a fact that Hrist is proud of. Sitting down, Isami notes that Qin Shi Huang was just full of surprises this round.Turning around, they are confronted by Adamantine, who questions where they hid Qin Shi Huang. Not knowing who this is, Göll thinks about how he looks like trouble. Bowing down, Brunhilde says it’s good to see Adamas. Göll can’t believe this is Adamas since she heard he was killed by Poseidon and she begins to believe he’s a ghost. Brunhilde reveals she had heard rumors he was still alive and they seem to be true. Digging his claws into a nearby pillar, Adamantine looks down on Brunhilde and demands she tell him where Qin Shi Huang is as that is the only reason he hasn’t killed her yet.
How does record of Ragnarok end?
Raiden thanks his opponent for a worthy fight and announces that he’s expended all his energy. Shiva thanks Raiden for the battle and walks away in victory as his opponent perishes.
Thinking about something, Buddha suddenly leans his elbow against the ground and says he has a favor to ask of Kintoki. Kintoki tells him to say no more and when Buddha mentions how he hasn’t said anything, Kintoki smiles about how he has no reason to turn down a request from Buddha.He says that the Emperor must’ve had fearsome willpower to have done all that, while suffering such deep wounds. Soji agrees as Qin Shi Huang could’ve fallen if he had taken even just one misstep and calls him an interesting guy for his all-or-nothing move. Sighing, Kojiro doubts they’d find anyone more worthy of the title of “King”, even if they look back through all of history. At the Greek Gods’ viewing room, Ares breaks the balcony in anger as he exclaims how this can’t be possible. Adamantine suddenly breaks down the doors and Hermes asks where he’s going. Adamantine yells about how he doesn’t care about Ragnarok or its rules: he’ll deal with this the way he wants to. As Adamantine walks off, Hermes asks a silent Zeus if he’s alright with that. Zeus suddenly addresses Hermes by name and somberly recalls how, at the end, Hades apologised. Hermes and Ares look at him in silence as the fires atop the skeleton-like pillars die out. Away from the Valhalla Arena, under the tree he was at before his round, a bandaged Buddha lays down with a lollipop in his mouth, a basket of lollipops next to him and two birds also sitting nearby. Hrist is still amazed that they managed to beat Hades before wondering how they still had enough strength left to shatter Hades’ spear. Kojiro bluntly states that they didn’t and recalls how, in the split second that Qin Shi Huang received Hades’ fearsome thrust, he fired Tortoise Ripple at Desmos’ Qi crux. Hrist is surprised that even spears have cruxes of Qi but Kojiro says they normally don’t. In this case, when Hades spilled his blood onto his bident, it became a part of his body. Göll remembers that Buddha was in a pretty bad condition too and suggests they may not be allowed to see him. Brunhilde believes that is possible, if Buddha isn’t in his room. Just as Göll questions why he wouldn’t be, a voice calls out to the two Valkyries. Buddha insists he’ll heal quicker here as the two birds perch themselves on him. Scratching his head, Kintoki guesses it’s hopeless and sets down a large barrel he’s been carrying. Opening it up, Kintoki reveals this is his get-well-soon gift and it’s shown to be filled with his own branded candy. Delighted, Buddha begins munching on one and says that Kintoki’s candy rocks, prompting Kintoki to bring up how Buddha is the only person he knows that chomps right through it.
The story begins when the gods call a conference to decide the whether to let humanity live or die, and settle on destroying humanity. But a lone valkyrie puts forward a suggestion to let the gods and humanity fight one last battle, as a last hope for humanity’s continued survival. 13 gods will fight against 13 human champions in one-on-one battles to decide whether humanity lives or dies.
Every 1000 years, the Gods’ Council assembles to decide the fate of humanity. After 7 million years of human history, the gods come to the decision that humans are irredeemable and must go extinct. However, the valkyrie Brunhilde proposes to give humanity one last chance to prove their worth and the gods agree to hold the battle of Ragnarok, a tournament with 13 notable humans from across history against 13 of the most powerful gods engaging in duels to the death.Humanity will be spared if their side achieves 7 victories in the competition. To even the odds, each human is granted the assistance of a valkyrie who transforms into a powerful weapon tailored for their user’s combat style called “Volund”, at the risk of losing her life if the user is killed.
It began in Coamix’s (formerly also published by Tokuma Shoten) seinen manga magazine Monthly Comic Zenon in November 2017. It was licensed in North America by Viz Media in June 2021. The manga was adapted as an original net animation (ONA) by Graphinica and premiered on Netflix in June 2021. A second season has been announced.Record of Ragnarok (終末のワルキューレ, Shūmatsu no Warukyūre, lit. “Valkyrie of the End”), is a Japanese manga series written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui and illustrated by Ajichika.
A subreddit dedicated to the manga and anime series Record of Ragnarok “Shuumatsu no Valkyrie” ( 終末のワルキューレ) written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui and illustrated by Ajichika.Record of Ragnarok continues to be beautiful and dynamic because of how differently the creative team has envisioned the roster of deities and heroes. If you looked at the pages, you would never know exactly where references for the characters came from. The designs are thoroughly unique and entertaining and the fight scenes are something to behold. But the fights work not only because of the illustration but because we get a build-up of history and context around the character, their culture, and their story.The fight itself is hard-hitting and offers the least backstory so far, but at the same time, the fight elements are so fast-paced that it holds you, keeping you flipping the pages to see what happens next.
Is Adam the strongest human in Ragnarok?
Adam might perhaps be the most powerful Human in history, being able to go toe to toe with and nearly defeating the chairman of the Gods’ Council and champion of the Titanomachy, Zeus.
One thing that manga does that always makes me excited is the intro page. In nearly every volume you’ll get a page dedicated to reminding you of the story so far and the key characters. For Record of Ragnarok though, they add one more element: the roster. In it, you get a breakdown of the 13 heroes and the 13 gods who are set to battle against each other. But don’t worry, you don’t who is matching up against who, which allows you to enjoy without spoilers. Kate is co-founder, EIC, and CCO of BWT.

Like the volume before it, Record of Ragnarok Volume 2 leaves its audience hanging but in a great way…There is a lot of shock and fun in Record of Ragnarok that is so much more than the anime that was released last year.Record of Ragnarok pits gods and human heroes against each other in 13 rounds of a once in millennium fight for humanity’s survival. Last volume, we saw Brunhilde step up to defend humanity by choosing the legendary Chinese warrior Lü Bu to fight the Norse God of Thunder, Thor. We got the backstories of the two opponents, and we got the chance to see just how much the gods are set on destroying humanity. Now in Record of Ragnarok Volume 2, we see Adam and Zeus face off after the conclusion of Lü Bu versus Thor.
Record of Ragnarok Volume 2 is features art by Azychika, a story by Shinya Umemura, and a script by Takyumi Fukui. The series is published and localized in English by VIZ Media through their VIZ Signature imprint. Additionally, its translated into English by Jo Yamakazi and features touch-up art & lettering by Mark McMurray.
While the art remains a hyper-stylized stand-out, its Record of Ragnarok Volume 2’s choice to throw Abrahamic mythology into the ring is something we don’t usually see in stories of pantheons and heroes. Most of the time, we only see polytheistic pantheons entering battles, but here, we see Adam, a hero among men for his hatred of the gods and need for knowledge. This leads to his match-up against the god of gods Zeus.
The initial expectation of an easy first win for the gods in the Valhalla Arena is shattered as the human hero Lü Bu (with some help from Brunhilde on the sly) proves to be a match for the mighty Thor. But can Lü Bu stand up to the thunder god’s most powerful attack? With the tournament going into its second round, a surprising fighter for the gods decides to step into the ring. His human opponent? None other than the first man himself—Adam!Like the volume before it, Record of Ragnarok Volume 2 leaves its audience hanging but in a great way. The pacing of the story is nearly perfect with fights spaced out with story and lamentation from Brunhilde and Gier at humanity’s results in the first fight. There is a lot of shock and fun in Record of Ragnarok that is so much more than the anime that was released last year.
