The epic 1-1 humans vs Gods anime adaptation for Record of Ragnarok premieres June 2021! It will be exclusively on Netflix, and there is a new trailer. You can watch it on Neflix’s official Twitter, and you can also watch it on YouTube:
Maximum The Hormone will perform the opening theme song “Kamigami” (Gods/God Biting), while SymaG will perform the ending song “Fukahi” (Inevitable). The manga has been ongoing since November 2017. It is written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui, while Ajichika handles the illustration. Judging by the visual and trailer, we can expect the Record of Ragnarok anime to adapt the first 3 fights. The new trailer shows more of Adam and Sakaki, as wells as Poseidon and Zeus. If it’s a single cour, it might be just enough to properly adapt each fight in 3-4 episodes, especially considering how epic it looks in the manga.
In case you don’t know what the story is about, you can read the full synopsis:
7 million years of human civilization is coming to an end…
Every thousand years, all the gods of the world gather in heaven to attend the Conference of Mankind Survival. The gods agree to end to mankind due to their 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 don’t you test the humans?”
She proposes that the all-powerful gods face off in one-on-one battles against the strongest champions from human history — during a final struggle known as “Ragnarok.” The first team to win 7 out of 13 battles will be declared the winner, but it seems almost impossible for humans to win against the gods.
Although the gods sneer at her declaration, Brunhild provokes them further:
“Are you chickening out?”
Her words hit the gods’ nerves, and, enraged, they accept her proposal. Now, Brunhild and her sisters must choose humanity’s 13 champions in a desperate battle for survival. Will humans surpass gods and prevent humanity’s ultimate end? The eschatological battles between heaven and earth finally begins!
Record of Ragnarok has some epic fights, so it’s awesome to hear that the anime will come June 2021! You can also read more anime & manga news here!
