Record of Ragnarok S2 was worth the wait!
Record of Ragnarok was, at least for me, one of the greatest anime surprises that came out from Netflix last year. Epic battles, epic story, epic music, great animation etc etc. If there was one complaint I had, was that the first season featured only three battles, leaving you craving for more!
On the other hand, the manga is still on going and new chapters come out very slowly so it's not like the studio had much material to work with.
It's been a year, but finally season two made it's debut yesterday with 10 new episodes. And boy oh boy was it worth the wait.
Unfortunately, we only got two battles this time. But! But!
They were both fucking epic! And I think there was some improvement in the animation too. Or maybe that was just my impression. Or maybe because the jack the ripper vs Hercules battle was less "static".
Like season 1, everything was pretty much perfect. I really enjoyed the (largely made up) background stories of each historic figure. And the music. And the Japanese voices. And now I can't get this out of my fucking head
God fucking damnit. It's gonna be a fucking long long long wait till the next season.
If you like fighting animes don't miss this show. It's almost perfection. An easy 9/10 from me!
The Gods' Council assembles once every millennia to decide the fate of humanity, deciding that mankind’s 7 million years of irredeemable history gives justification for their extinction. But the valkyrie Brunhilde proposes giving humanity one last chance to prove their worth and the gods agree to hold the tournament of Ragnarok, where humanity will be spared if they can best the gods in seven out of thirteen matches. Humanity’s representatives are the Einherjar, notable humans across history who are each granted a valkyrie who becomes a powerful weapon tailored for their user's combat style called "Volund", at the risk of losing her life if the user is killed. source
