Shuumatsu no Valkyrie synopsis

High above the human kingdom, the gods of the world have come together to decide on a single question: the continued existence of humanity. Under the head of Zeus, the deities of ancient Greece, Norse mythology and Hinduism, among others, gather in a gathering every thousand years to decide the fate of mankind. Due to their relentless abuse of one another and the planet, the gods are voting unanimously for the end of humanity this time.

But before the term of office is over, Brunhild, one of the 13 demigod Valkyries, presents an alternative proposal: Instead of destroying mankind in an anti-climatic way, why not give them the chance to fight and represent Ragnarok, a confrontation between man and God ? - Spurred on by the boldness of the challenge, the divine counsel swiftly accepts, confident that this competition will show the absolute power of the gods. To stand a chance against the highest beings, Brunhild must assemble the greatest characters in history, otherwise the death sentence will sound for humanity.
