Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui's Record of Ragnarok manga originally began serializing in Monthly Comic Zenon in 2017 and has been compiled into 10 volumes since then. The controversial ongoing manga depicts a deadly tournament between gods and men. When the council of gods convenes and decides that humanity should be wiped out, the Valkyrie Brunhilde proposes that the human race be given a chance in a tournament. Thirteen of the strongest mortals across history face the gods. If humanity manages to win seven of the duels, their race will be preserved. In order to even the odds, Brunhilde and her sisters risk their lives and assist the human champions by transforming into powerful weapons for them to use.
