The Heavenly Anime Series was first released on Netflix in June 2021 and has captured thousands of fans of all ages. Viewers have been waiting for Record of Ragnarok season 2. Record of Ragnarok is an anime adaptation of a manga of the same name released in 2017. Written by Fudeyasu Kazuyuki and directed by Masao Okubo.
The premise in the first season, when the Pantheon of the Gods judged that humanity was exhausted, Valkyrie Brunhilde persuaded the gods to accept Ragnarok. 13 consecutive battles between gods and humans, Valkyrie becomes humanity’s weapon. If God had won seven victories first, humankind would cease to exist. If humans win seven games, they win 1000 years more to live.
Despite the controversy earlier this year during the anime release, it doesn’t change that Record of Ragnarok season 2 is one of the most anticipated anime because of the unique concept between gods and humans.
Record of Ragnarok Season 2: Renewal, Release Date and The Illustration
Record of Ragnarok’s official website announced that on August 18, 2021, the series had been renewed for a second season. The notice reads, “The series of hot battles will be re-animated.”
At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed. However, overseas fans can expect the series to hit Netflix (The One) in the summer of 2022.
Netflix (Ozark) has not yet confirmed if they will be featuring the anime, but as Record of Ragnarok Anime showed the first season on the popular streaming platform, we expect Season 2 to be shown there.
The illustrations for the second season were drawn by Masaki Sato, created to celebrate the news of the series resumption. We can view the Record of Ragnarok new artwork below:
What Will the Plot be for Record of Ragnarok Season 2
The first season is a direct adaptation to the manga series so that we can expect the same as the second season. However, fans were disappointed because they thought the first season should have had more intense fighting.
We have seen three epic battles. Record of Ragnarok adapted the fight directly from the manga. If this happens in the second season, we’ll see the rest of the competition split further into three seasons as there are a total of 13 fights.
But for now, the storyline is Jack Ripper vs. Hercules is likely to follow as the main event, but other Gods like Shiva and Buddha will be included in the series and will be included as part of the battle.
