The authors Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui as well as illustrator Ajichika have been publishing “Record of Ragnarok” in the “Comic Zenon” magazine since November 2017. Tokuma Shoten has so far published nine volumes in Japanese trade. A spin-off manga has been released since October 2019.
High above the realm of men, the gods have gathered to decide on one thing: the survival of humanity. Every thousand years, under the head of Zeus, the gods of ancient Greece, Norse mythology and Hinduism come together to decide the fate of mankind. Because of their relentless abuse among themselves and towards the planet, the gods vote unanimously this time for the extinction of the human race.
But before the decision is taken, Brunhild, one of the 13 demigods, makes another suggestion: instead of simply wiping out humanity, one should give it a chance and organize a ragnarök, a show of strength between man and God.
Spurred on by the audacity of the challenge, the divine counsel accepts, with full confidence that this contest will show all the power of the gods. To have a chance against the mighty gods, Brunhild must gather the greatest individuals in history. Otherwise, the death bell will be rung for humanity.
