We have seen enough anime where the protagonist tried to “play God and save the world.” But now it’s time to take this idea a step further to “defeat the Gods and save the world.”
Record of Ragnarok is an anime that brings together the Gods from Ancient Greece, Norse mythology, and Hinduism. The reason behind this ‘Godly’ reunion is to annihilate the human race for their past foolish acts and unrelenting abuse towards each other.
That being said, it requires really skilled voice-actors to bring such adamant personalities alive on the anime silver screen. The franchise has already revealed the cast details that include some of the popular names in the industry.
On Monday, the Record of Ragnarok franchise revealed a key visual along with the names of 12 cast members. The anime will premiere sometime in 2021.
