About Record of Ragnarok
The Record of Ragnarok anime (aka Shūmatsu no Walküre lit. Valkyrie of the end) follows the source/ inspiration Norse mythology. Both in the manga and the anime that is to follow, we will witness a series of fierce battles. As a Seinen demographic series, the anime is sure to reach and go far beyond battle expectations.
The story follows Brunhilde, the infamous oldest Valkyrie of 13 sisters, and her suggestion of the battles between gods and men. The characters are diverse, ranging from a series of interesting characters all through history such as Adam (the first man on earth), Lu Bu from Chinese mythology, etc. They are assisted by the 13 Valkyries in their attempt to defeat the ‘cheat-like’ power of the gods.
There are also a plethora of gods from various myths (Zeus, Odin, Shiva, etc.) bestowed with their own god-like vanity and prowess. The anime is action-oriented but has several comic scenes as well. Much like DanMachi there is a recreation of famous heroes and legends all in one.
As stated the anime will be directed by Masao Okubo, who is best known for his filmography in Detective Conan. Aside from this, he has worked with several popular anime series as a key animator. The main cast has all been unmissable names in the Seiyuu industry. We really look forward to the series.
