Record of Ragnarok will be one of the most controversial anime in the world. Yet, the public sees it as cool fighting anime between gods and humans.
Set the controversy aside, the anime is undoubtedly successful even though the first season received harsh critics because of the visual animation.
Because of the sheer popularity, the second season was released on January 26, 2023. The second season feels like a payback for the critics. It definitely has a better visual as well as a not rushed plotline.
Though we already have 10 episodes released four months ago, we still have another five episodes for the second part of Record of Ragnarok 2.
Fortunately, Netflix Anime, as the official broadcaster, released a new visual for the second part. What information did they release? Read on!
Record of Ragnarok Season 2 Part 2 New Visual
The new visual was released on May 25, 2023. Just like with the visual for the second season of Record of Ragnarok, it shows both the contender in the human and god sides.
But, as you can see, Buddha who is originally fighting on god side, will change his side and become human’s representative. Meanwhile, the god side will be represented by Hajun. A bit of a spoiler, Hajun is the fused form of the seven God of luck led by Bishamonten.
There will be five episodes in total for the second part of the show. It means the fight will have a slower pace compared to each fight in the first season.
Netflix will broadcast it worldwide on July 12, 2023. Surprisingly, it will take time for the second part to debut on TV in Japan. For the record, the first part of Record of Ragnarok 2 has three months gap between Netflix and Japan’s TV debut.
Another piece of information we get is the announcement of Hades and Beelzebub’s VA. We have three new VAs who will appear in the second part. They are:
- Tetsu Inada as Hajun
- Ryotaro Okiayu as Hades
- Daisuke Namikawa as Beelzebub
The appearance of Hades and Beelzebub is given because of the plotline. But can we, as fans, treat it as easter eggs for the third season of Record of Ragnarok? Well, let’s find out when the time comes.
