Synopsis for Shuumatsu no Valkyrie

High above the human realm, the gods of the world have gathered to decide one single question: the survival of humanity. Under the leadership of Zeus, the deities of ancient Greece, Norse mythology and Hinduism, among others, convene a gathering every thousand years to decide the fate of mankind. This time, due to their relentless abuse of each other and the planet, the gods vote unanimously for the end of humanity.

But before the mandate is up, Brunhild, one of the 13 Valkyrie demigods, has an alternative suggestion: instead of annihilating humanity in an anticlimactic way, why not give it a chance and wage Ragnarok, a one-on-one showdown, through? Spurred on by the audacity of the challenge, the divine council quickly accepts, confident that this battle will demonstrate the absolute power of the gods. To stand a chance against the Supreme Beings, Brunhild must gather history's greatest characters or the death knell will ring for humanity.
