Where to live stream
You can live stream Season 1 on Netflix. Season 2 will also be made available on the same platform.
'Record of Ragnarok' sees all the gods known to humanity agree upon the decision that after 7 million years, it's time to whip out the human race, seeing that no good has come from having them around. However, before this decision can be passed, a Valkyrie named Brunhilde, who despises the gods and wishes to protect mankind, suggests that humans be given a chance to fight for their freedom.
The gods find the proposition laughable, but when she suggests that they fear humans, they decide to go ahead with this battle royale. This deathmatch is referred to as Ragnarok, where 13 humans selected by Brunhilde will go up against 13 gods in a fight to the death. Season 1 saw 3 battles so far — the Norse god of thunder, Thor, faced off against the Chinese warlord, Lu Bu, Zeus the Greek god took on Adam, the first man, and finally Poseidon, the god of the sea, fought against Kojiro Sasaki, a legendary Japanese samurai. Sasaki was the only human to win, slaying Poseidon in the process.
With the scoreboard reading 2-1, the next match, which will be in Season 2, sees 19th-century murderer Jack the Ripper face off against demigod, Hercules. If season 2 is to follow the same format as Season 1, there will be 2 more fights featured in the season. The fifth fight will be between Raiden Tameemon, the greatest Japanese Sumo Wrestler and the Hindu god Shiva. The sixth fight will be between Buddha and Zerofuku, the origin of the Seven Lucky Gods.
While the entire cast of Season 1 won't be returning for Season 2, seeing that a few characters did die, the following can be expected to be part of the second season, along with multiple additions, although the same has not been revealed yet.
Miyuki Sawashiro will most likely reprise her role as the Japanese voice of Brunhilde, as will Tomoyo Kurosawa as the Japanese voice of Goll. With regard to the gods, if Thor is to make a comeback, so will his voice actor Hikaru Midorikawa. Wataru Takagi will most likely voice Zeus, who is head of the god council.
Shiva, whose battle will be most likely be featured next season, will be voiced by Tatsuhisa Suzuki. Hermes, who is Zeus' right hand, will be voiced by Junichi Suwabe. If Ares and Aprohdite are to make a comeback, they will be voiced by their Season 1 actors, Hinata Tadokoro and Rie Tanaka respectively.
'Record of Ragnarok' is based on the manga series by the same name or 'Shūmatsu no Walküre' (Valkyrie of the End) as it is known in Japanese. The series is written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui and illustrated by Ajichika.
