Confirmed during Jump Festa, the manga series Record of Ragnarok is receiving an anime adaptation courtesy of Graphnica (Chain Chronicle). In the world of the series, the Gods’ Council decides whether humanity deserves to exist every thousand years. At the latest gathering, the gods agree that humanity has had it’s time, but fortunately a member of the Valkyries, Brunhilde, stands up to defend humanity.
As a result, humans are placed in a contest against the strongest gods in a series of one-on-one duels known as the “Battle of Ragnarok”. If humanity can win seven of the duels, they earn the right to continue existing. The Valkyries also agree to transform into weapons to aid them in combat, helping to balance things out in the battles.
Record of Ragnarok releases during 2021.
