Shuumatsu no Valkyrie Synopsis
High above the realm of man, the gods of the world have come together 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 unanimously vote in favor of ending the human race.
But before the term passes, Brunhild, one of the 13 demigods Valkyries, presents an alternative proposal: instead of annihilating humanity in an anticlimactic way, why not give them a chance to fight and represent Ragnarok, a confrontation one between man and god? Spurred on by the audacity of the challenge, the divine council quickly accepts, fully confident that this contest will show the absolute power of the gods. To stand a chance against the supreme beings, Brunhild will need to gather the greatest characters in history, otherwise, the death sentence will ring for humanity.
