Record of Ragnarok, or Shūmatsu no Walküre (終末のワルキューレ), lit. is a Japanese manga series written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui and illustrated by Ajichika. It began in Coamix’s (formerly also published by Tokuma Shoten) seinen manga magazine Monthly Comic Zenon in November 2017.
Every 1000 years, the Gods’ Council assemble to decide the fate of humanity. After 7 million years of human history, the gods decided that humans must become extinct.
Valkyrie Bronhild suggests humanity should have one last chance to prove their worth, so the gods agree to hold the Battle of Ragnarok, with 13 prominent people throughout history against 13 of the most powerful gods who participate in duels to the death while saving humanity if their team achieves 7 victories. In competition.
Ragnarok is mankind’s final struggle against the gods. The event explained in paragraph 15 of article No. 62 in the Super Special Clause of the Valhalla Constitution. It is a one-on-one showdown between the gods and mankind.
thirteen fighters must fight against each other in one-on-one battles to death. The first side to achieve seven victories wins. If the human race loses, their fate is doomed, but if they win, they will have chance to live for another 1,000 years.
Those defeated at Ragnarok, their souls turned to dust and sent to Nevelhil, the Norse kingdom of fog.. This halts the reincarnation cycle, consequently leading to permanent death.
As the gods were deciding on mankind’s destruction, Brunhilde took the humans’ side and suggested the start of Ragnarok. The gods, seeing the suggestion as pointless, refused to take part in it, citing that it was “a waste of time”. However, Brunhilde taunted them, declaring that they were “chickening out”.
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.
