A new image promising more of the divine battles to come in Record of Ragnarok has revealed its projected release window and announced its official return to Netflix with a second season! The anime adaptation of the cult favourite manga series by Shinya Umemura, Takumi Fukui, and Ajichika made its Netflix premiere worldwide last Summer, and the first season teased fans that there were already preparations in place to continue the series with a second season. Since those ambitions were originally hinted at last year, word hasn’t spread much, but the second season has finally made a significant advancement.
Season 2 of Record of Ragnarok will premiere on Netflix sometime in 2023, according to the account’s official Twitter feed. A poster showing the upcoming sequence of bouts that viewers will witness in action in the new episodes has given fans a clearer sense of what to anticipate from the new episodes, despite the regrettable lack of a release date. Some important literary and mythological characters will still appear, but only if the new episodes of the series are more successful. Look at the flyer below:

Due to the way each battle was animated in the first season, it caused some extremely polarising reactions among fans, so there’s a good bit of worry that the upcoming episodes would be repeating the same problems. However, it won’t be until next year that we will be able to watch it in action. The first set of episodes from the series are presently available on Netflix if you’re interested in seeing it before the second season debuts there next year. Officially, they say the following about Record of Ragnarok:
“Finally, an anime adaptation of this wildly successful manga series with over 6 million copies in print will be released! The fate of mankind is on the line as 13 one-on-one confrontations pit representatives from human history against the world’s deities. Graphinica, the animation company behind Juni Taisen: Zodiac War and Hello Universe, is responsible for bringing this violent world to life on screen. Graphinica has already illustrated numerous bloody 3D CG fights in anime including Blade of the Immortal, Promare, and Girls und Panzer. A battle-action anime that is both exhilarating and sublime appears on screen!”
