Get ready, anime lovers! Netflix has prepared plenty of anime shows for us the entire year.
40 anime titles are coming to the platform in 2021, and among the biggest shows is 'Record of Ragnarok.'
'Record of Ragnarok' is an adaptation of the manga Shūmatsu no Warukyūre by authors Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui. The animation is produced by Graphinica, the same studio behind 'Hellsing Ultimate,' 'Another World', and 'Juni Taisen: Zodiac War.'
'Record of Ragnarok' depicts an epic fight between gods and mortals in a bid to save humanity.
The anime series is finally coming next month. Let's find out everything there is to know about 'Record of Ragnarok.'
Release Date: June 2021
The anime will arrive on Netflix in June 2021. The exact release date and the total number of episodes are yet to be announced.
'Record of Ragnarok' follows 13 historical figures who will have to engage in a battle of Ragnarok, a duel of death where humans have to fight gods in a quest to save humanity. The anime is set in a time where the gods have already decided to wipe out humanity. The only way to reverse the decision is for humans to get 7 wins against the gods. In a world where winning is the only key to save humanity, humans must do their best to forge the strongest warriors to stand a chance in a battle against the powerful gods.
In Norse mythology, the word Ragnarok means the destruction of the world through humanity's final fight with the gods. The title 'Record of Ragnarok' fits perfectly with the anime's narrative.
As mentioned, the anime will feature notable men in history to fight the gods and save humanity.
The 13 fighters from the human team include military general Lü Bu (voiced by Tomokazu Seki), Adam (the first human male from the bible), voiced by Soma Saito, and the famous swordsman Kojiro Sasaki (voiced by Kazuhiro Yamaji).
Other interesting characters to look out for are serial killer Jack the Ripper and inventor Nikola Tesla.
Meanwhile, here are the characters from the gods' team.
We have Thor, the God of Thunder (voiced by Hikaru Midorikawa), Zeus the King of Olympus (voiced by Wataru Takagi), Poseidon the god of the sea (voiced by Takahiro Sakurai), Hermes the messenger god (voiced by Junichi Suwabe), Aphrodite the goddess of love and beauty (voiced by Rie Tanaka), Ares god of war (Hinata Tadakoro), Shiva the third god in the Hindu triumvirate (voiced by Tatsuhisa Suzuki), Odin the Norse god of war and death (voiced by Show Hayami), and Loki, the god of mischief (voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka).
