Record of Ragnarok, the anime series that is insane yet exhilarating with its idea of humans and gods having duels to their deaths, finally got green-lit for season 2.
In the season 1 finale, we saw how the tides favored the humans to win one battle against the gods. Although the humans are at a disadvantage, the second and third fights left an impact and motivated the humans to strive for more.
The anime had a mixed review from the fans as some thought the series rushed the superb storytelling, and the fights were not satisfying enough.
Still, we are hopeful that justice will be done to its amazing and out-of-the-box storyline in season 2.
Keeping that in mind, when will we see the epic fights of humans and the gods back in action?

3. New Characters For Record of Ragnarok Season 2
Here are some of the new characters we will likely see in the upcoming season:
I. Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper, or Jack, is the infamous serial killer hailing from the late 19th century in Britain. He is a master assassin and combatant who prefers to win through genius tactics rather than raw power.
II. Raiden Tameemon
Raiden Tameemon is considered a highly-rated Japanese sumo wrestler of all time. He has the strongest muscles in human history and claims to be serious about everything he says.
Buddha is a prominent deity and the leader of the Buddhist Pantheon. He has an easygoing attitude and is quite confident in his great power.
Heracles is a prominent deity in the Greek Pantheon, being the god of Fortitude. He is a very just individual and is also considered the most righteous being among the gods.
Shiva is a prominent deity and the leader of the Hindu Pantheon, He is considered the strongest god of destruction but is carefree, proud with a violent personality.
Bishamonten is the Shinto god of fortune in war and battles. He is also the leader and strongest member of the Seven Lucky gods. He has a stoic personality and takes his duties seriously, such as heaven’s punishment.
The first season had three fights in the line-up, and season 2 will likely follow the same.
The upcoming season will bring more battles as the tournament has to continue to see if the humans can win against the gods to save their existence for another 1000 years.
We may likely see the amazing three fights that will happen between the human “Jack the Ripper” and the god “Heracles.” From there, Raiden Tameemon will take on Shiva, and Buddha fights against Bishamonten.
These upcoming brawls will be interesting to witness if the human warriors can make a way to victory against all the odds.
