The official Twitter account for Cartoon Network in Japan announced on Tuesday that the official TV anime version broadcast of the globally recognized work of Shinya Umemura, Ajichika, and Takumi Fukui’s Record of Ragnarok (Shūmatsu no Walküre)will run with an additional exclusive mini anime for its television run.
Record of Ragnarok anime will broadcast from October 1 on Tokyo MX, BS11, and MBS, and the mini anime will begin on October 3.
Previously, the adaptation made its exclusive debut on Netflix around the world on June 17. Following some heated debate and controversies, the creators of the anime announced earlier this month, that the battle anime will get a second season.
MAL describes the story as:
High above the realm of man, the gods of the world have convened to decide on a single matter: the continued existence of mankind. Under the head of Zeus, the deities of Ancient Greece, Norse mythology, and Hinduism, among others, call assembly every one thousand years to decide the fate of humanity. Because of their unrelenting abuse toward each other and the planet, this time the gods vote unanimously in favor of ending the human race.
But before the mandate passes, Brunhild, one of the 13 demigod Valkyries, puts forth an alternate proposal: rather than anticlimactically annihilating mankind, why not give them a fighting chance and enact Ragnarök, a one-on-one showdown between man and god? Spurred on by the audacity of the challenge, the divine council quickly accepts, fully confident that this contest will display the utter might of the gods. To stand a chance against the mighty heavens, Brunhild will need to assemble history’s greatest individuals, otherwise, the death knell will surely be sounded for mankind.
