The celestial anime series was first released in June 2021 on Netflix and gripped thousands of fans with battles across the ages and viewers have waited for a second season since.
Record of Ragnarok is an anime adaptation of a manga by the same name which was released in 2017. The anime is written by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu and is directed by Masao Ōkubo.
The premise follows a gods council that comes together and decides the fate of humanity putting them through a trial to redeem themselves in the most epic fights throughout history, with gods, celestial beings and humans all battling it out.
Record of Ragnarok: Renewal, release date and the illustration
The official website for Record of Ragnorok announced on 18th August 2021 that the series had been renewed for Season 2. In the announcement, they say “The continuation of the hot fight will be drawn as an animation again”.
A release date has not yet been confirmed at the time of writing. However, HITC believes that international fans can expect the series to head to Netflix in the summer of 2022.
Netflix has not yet confirmed if they will be featuring the anime but as the first season was shown on the popular streaming platform, we expect Season 2 would also be shown on there.
The illustration for the second season was drawn by Masaki Sato, who created it to celebrate the news of the series renewal. The artwork can be seen below:
What will the plot be for season 2?
As the first season followed the manga series we can expect the same of Season 2. Although fans were left slightly disappointed with the first season due to them believing that the fights should have been more brutal.
We have seen 3 epic fights take place. The fights have been adapted from the manga. Should this be the case for Season 2 we might see the remaining fights to be split into three more seasons as there are a total of 13 fights.
However, for now, the plot will likely follow Jack the Ripper vs Hercules as the main event but with other big names such as Shiva and Buddha to be included in the series and as part of the battle.
Who will be the cast for Season 2?
The English voice cast is yet to be confirmed but for now, these are the characters and cast that are expected to feature in Season 2 of Record of Ragnarok:
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Brunhilde.
- Tomoyo Kurosawa as Göll.
- Tomokazu Seki as Lü Bu.
