PlotEdit

Every 1000 years, the Gods' Council assembles to decide the fate of humanity. After 7 million years of human history, the gods come to the decision that humans are irredeemable and must go extinct. However, the valkyrie Brunhilde proposes to give humanity one last chance to prove their worth and the gods agree to hold the battle of Ragnarok, a tournament with 13 notable humans from across history against 13 of the most powerful gods engaging in duels to the death. Humanity will be spared if their side achieves 7 victories in the competition. To even the odds, each human is granted the assistance of a valkyrie who transforms into a powerful weapon tailored for their user's combat style called "Volund", at the risk of losing her life if the user is killed.

At the Council of Valhalla, the gods had gathered after a 1000 years since the last meeting and decide that humanity is iredeemable and must be destroyed. Brunhilde, leader of the Valkyries, objects to the decision and proposes that the gods demonstrate their mercy and power by testing mankind. Brunhilde convinces the gods to hold Ragnarok, a competition where thirteen humans and thirteen gods face one-on-one battles to the death and the first to achieve seven victories wins, with mankind spared for another 1000 years should they achieve victory. For the first battle, the first representative of the gods is the strongest Norse god and God of Thunder, Thor, while the human representative is the most powerful of all Chinese heroes, Lü Bu and their fight begins with both opponents fighting at full force.

Transcription: "Kōtekishu" (Japanese: 好敵手)
Hiroyuki KitakuboKazuyuki FudeyasuMasao ŌkuboJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
The gods are surprised that Lü Bu forces Thor to fight him seriously and reminisce about the Norse god's greatest feats while details of Lü Bu's past are also revealed, including the fact that unlike the official story, Lü Bu surrendered to his enemies after realizing that there is no one else strong enough to fight him. When Lü Bu's weapon deflects Thor's Hammer, the gods realize that Lü Bu is also equipped with a divine weapon, while Brunhilde gathers the 13 Valkyries to assist the humans in Ragnarok.

Transcription: "Hissatsu Waza" (Japanese: 必殺技)
Takushi ShikataniKazuyuki FudeyasuMasao ŌkuboJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
Before Ragnarok, Brunhilde calls the fourth sister, Randgriz, and orders her to help Lü Bu by transforming into a sacred weapon for him. As Lü Bu manages to injure Thor again, Zeus confirms that the Valkyries are rebelling against the gods, but is thrilled by the challenge it brings. Brunhilde is informed about the full list of Ragnarok participants. By removing his restraints, Thor shows the full extent of his powers and prepares to deal the finishing blow on Lü Bu.
4"Joy"
Transcription: "Kanki" (Japanese: 歓喜)
Hirokazu YamadaKazuyuki FudeyasuKōjin OchiJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
Lü Bu's legs break from the full might of Thor's attack and his trusty steed, Red Hare, appears to support Lü Bu, but the fight is decided when Lü Bu's weapon breaks and Randgriz returns to her normal form. Defeated, Lü Bu rejoices at having finally fought a worthy opponent. Thor then beheads Lü Bu with his hammer, sealing the first victory for the gods.
5"File No.00000000001"Yasutaka YamamotoKazuyuki FudeyasuYasutaka YamamotoJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
After Lü Bu's death, his army led by Chen Gong and Red Hare charge at Thor, who kills them in respect for his fallen opponent. Göll, the youngest of the valkyries, learn from Brunhilde that both Lü Bu and Randgriz's souls were destroyed, thus they can't be revived. Angry that Brunhilde does not show any sadness for their sister's fate, Göll reprimands her, but Brunhilde yells at her stating that you can't slay a god if you act sad. Brunhilde chooses Adam, the father of all mankind as the human representative for the second match, but while Shiva, the strongest Hindu god was originally chosen as his opponent, Zeus steps in and assumes his place, much to Brunhilde's surprise.
6"Great Emulation"
Transcription: "Karei Naru Mohō" (Japanese: 華麗なる模倣)
Kōjin OchiKazuyuki FudeyasuMasao ŌkuboJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
Zeus convinces Shiva to fight Adam in his place and Adam is equipped with a knuckleduster with the spirit of the seventh Valkyrie, Reginleif, while Zeus decides to fight barehanded.

Transcription: "Rakuen Tsuihō" (Japanese: 楽園追放)
Masahito OtaniKazuyuki FudeyasuKōjin OchiJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
As Adam keeps overpowering Zeus, Brunhilde comments Adams' strength comes from his rancor, his hatred for the gods, revealing that both he and his wife Eve were banished from paradise after Eve was falsely accused of eating the forbidden fruit, accepting their exile after killing The Serpent for incriminating Eve after she refused his advances. Just as the battle is almost decided, Zeus shows his true form and Adam stops attacking upon realizing the danger.
8"Grace Abounding"
Transcription: "Afureru Ai" (Japanese: あふれる愛)
Shin'ya UneKazuyuki FudeyasuMasao ŌkuboJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
Zeus assumes his ultimate form, Adamas form, and evens the odds against Adam. However, Adam eventually adapts to his opponent's strength and regains the upper hand, but just before Adam deals the finishing blow on Zeus, he dies from exaustion, his soul vanishing along Reginleif's. Despite defeated again, the humans on the audience celebrate Adam's example and express their will to defy the gods and win the Ragnarok. For the third match, Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea is chosen to fight for the gods' side, while an elderly Kojiro Sasaki appears as his opponent.

Poseidon begins the third match against Kojiro Sasaki equipped with a sword with the spirit of the valkyrie Hrist but neither take a step, as Kojiro fails to look for any opening in Poseidon's defense and realizes that he will be killed should he attacks carelessly. After Brunhilde tells the story of how Poseidon killed his older brother Adamas for deeming him a coward, Kojiro gives up from taking the first move against Poseidon and sits on the ground.
10"Greatest Loser"

After the story of how he perfected his skills just by his training is revealed, Kojiro provokes Poseidon and evades all of his attacks, until his opponent starts dealing blows too fast for him to dodge completely.
11"The Swallow Gazes into the Abyss"
Transcription: "Tsubame ga Mita Shin'en" (Japanese: 燕が見た深淵)
Kōjin OchiKazuyuki FudeyasuKōjin OchiJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
Poseidon eventually steps up his attacks against Kojiro, injurying him and eventually breaking his sword in two. After reminisicing about his famous encounter with Miyamoto Musashi, Kojiro decides to keep fighting and the broken sword is reforged into two new swords, reflecting Hrist's dual persona and turns the tables against his opponent.
12"And Ragnarok Goes On"
Transcription: "Soshite Ragunaroku wa Tsuzuku" (Japanese: そしてラグナロクはつづく)
Kōjin Ochi
Toshikatsu Tokoro
Kazuyuki FudeyasuMasao ŌkuboJune 17, 2021 (2021-06-17)
Poseidon decides to stop trying to outsmart Kojiro and attacks him with fast and direct strikes, albeit much faster. However, Kojiro uses all of his skills to counter Poseidon's moves and slices him in four, winning the match. Both humans and gods are surprised with mankind's first win. Zeus admits that mankind is indeed strong and that Brunhilde truly intends to defeat the gods, thus they need to take Ragnarok seriously and decides to send another Greek god to enact their revenge. Hercules is chosen as their representative for the fourth match, while Brunhilde sends Jack the Ripper against him, which astonishes the entire audience due to the latter's reputation as mankind's most devious murderer.

ReceptionEdit

PopularityEdit

Record of Ragnarok ranked 5th on Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2019 ranking of Top 20 manga series for male readers.[35] The series ranked 5th on the "Nationwide Bookstore Employees' Recommended Comics of 2018".[36] It placed 12th on the "Nationwide Bookstore Employees' Recommended Comics of 2020".[37] In 2019, the manga ranked 20th on the 5th Next Manga Awards in the Print category.[38] As of March 2021, the manga had over 6 million copies in circulation.[39] As of June 2021, the manga had over 7 million copies in circulation.[40]

ControversyEdit

In October 2020, Rajan Zed, the president of the Universal Society of Hinduism Rajan, made a statement addressed to Coamix, criticizing the depiction of Hindu deities in manga and urged the company "not to trivialize Lord Shiva and other highly revered Hindu gods and goddesses in its manga publications".[41] The anime received backlash for its depiction of Shiva by a large group of Indian Americans, calling the series "highly disturbing to them" as it trivializes the deity.[42] To avoid further criticism, Netflix altered the trailer to remove Shiva, and later removed the anime itself from its streaming library in India.[43][44]
