Synopsis of Shuumatsu no Valkyrie
High above the realm of man, the gods of the world have gathered to decide on a single matter: the continued existence of humanity. Under the head of Zeus, the deities of Ancient Greece, Norse mythology and Hinduism, among others, convene an assembly every thousand years to decide the fate of humanity. Due to their relentless abuse of each other and the planet, this time the gods vote unanimously to end the human race.
But before the term passes, Brunhild, one of the 13 Valkyrie demigoddesses, presents an alternative proposal: Instead of anticlimactically annihilating humanity, why not give them a fighting chance and enact Ragnarok, a one-on-one showdown. one between man and god? Spurred by the audacity of the challenge, the divine council quickly accepts, fully confident that this contest will showcase the absolute power of the gods. To stand a chance against the supreme beings, Brunhild will need to assemble history’s greatest characters, otherwise the death knell will sound for humanity.
