Synopsis for Shuumatsu no Valkyrie
High above the realm of man, the gods of the world have gathered to decide on a single issue: the continued existence of mankind. 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 mandate passes, Brunhild, one of the 13 Valkyrie demigoddesses, comes up with an alternative proposal: instead of annihilating humanity in an anticlimactic way, why not give them a fighting chance and enact Ragnarok, a one-on-one showdown? to one between man and god? Spurred 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 knell will sound for humanity.
