Record of Ragnarok is based on a manga written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui, and illustrated by Ajichika. The manga has been serialized since 2017 in Coamix’s Monthly Comic Zenon magazine. Viz Media is publishing the manga in English and describes the plot as:
The valkyrie Brunhilde has convinced the gods to give humanity a chance at redemption through combat in the Valhalla arena. Seeking a quick end to the proceedings, the gods present their first fighter, Thor, the Norse god of thunder. Facing him is a warrior said to be the strongest in the history of mankind, the legendary general Lü Bu!
