Record of Ragnarok

Sep 2, 2020

This manga is really good.

You just got out of some of that gold/deep anime like Stain Gate 0, Charlotte, Promised Neverland or whatever, and you just want to relax reading a nice action manga.

However you already read all the good stuff and that increasing pile of isekais does not appeal your fine senses anymore.

That my friend when stumble across Shuumatsu no Walkure ( Record of Ragnarok )

As says in the description of the manga, gods and humans battle in 1v1 death matches to decide the fate of the world.

The thing is, it’s  f***** awesome.

Story goes as straight as it looks, it doesn't go unnecessarily complicated and at the same time, does not get boring or redundant. All the battles get you in the edge of your seat, each battle goes for 5 to 7 chapters, that plus 35 chapters ( what was out when I wrote this ) equals me staying awake until 4:00 hyped as sh*t, finishing the whole thing at once.

Art is 10/10, some of that good, well drawn action and really good fights. As observation, I usually prefere watching action based anime's instead of reading the manga because fights some times gets harder to understand in manga and flow better in general when animated ( and I still give this 10/10 )

characters for me are 11/10, but befor reading you need to have one thing in mind.

Forget everything you know about this gods and historical figures. This manga makes its own representation, and sometimes, new background for the characters. So, if in Jesus Christ’s flashback he is all ripped, breaks out from his cross and beats The living sh*t out Pilatus for every sin he committed (btw this is a exaggerated example and it's not in the manga) is too much of a stretch for you then you maybe have a problem.

With that out of the way, characters are grate, in the battle you get to know more about their personality and what they stand for. One really nice detail is the irony and paradox that the battles show in regards how different and how similar the humans are from the gods.

Over all I think is a great manga, if you like that extremely over the top action with hight stakes or just want to have a good time reading something different from the usual you gonna have a good time.

One more thing, if you are past chapter 4 or 5 and still have doubts feel free to go to the end of chapter 7/beginning of chapter 8, ( when the second battle begins). That my friend, is when I knew that I wouldn’t be sleeping tonight.

Sorry for the grammar by the way.
