Plot: 7 million Years of Human Civilization is coming to an end…
Every 1000 years, all the Gods of the world gather in heaven to attend the “Conference of Mankind Survival”. All the Gods agree to bring an ultimate end to the mankind due to their past foolish acts but before the final verdict is made, Brunhild, the eldest of the 13 Valkyrie sisters make and objection.
“To spice things up, why donʼt you test humans?”
Her proposal was to have God vs Humanityʼs final struggle also known as the “Ragnarok”, where all the Gods from the world and champions from the entire human history enters 1 on 1 battle. The first team to win 7 battles out of 13 will be the winner.
It seems almost impossible for the humans to win against the Gods. Although Gods sneer at them, Brunhild makes further provocation;
“Are you chickening out?”
That touches Godsʼ nerves and they accept her proposal in anger. Therefore, Brunhild and her sisters must choose 13 of the strongest champions throughout the human history.
Will humans surpass Gods and make an stop to the ultimate end?
The eschatological battles between heaven and earth finally begin!
If you live in India, Netflix will not stream the anime.
Netflix India has removed its listing for the anime of Shinya Umemura, Ajichika, and Takumi Fukui's Record of Ragnarok (Shūmatsu no Walküre) manga. The streaming platform had listed the anime for release in India on June 17 alongside its worldwide debut.
Netflix has not made a public statement about the removal. ANN reached out to Netflix for a comment regarding the removal, but the company did not respond by press time.
US Hindu activist Rajan Zed had made a statement on March 21 urging Warner Bros. Japan to "not trivialize" Hindu deity Lord Shiva in the anime. According to Zed, in early June Netflix had refused to remove the anime from its catalog, stating in an email to him that "We at Netflix respect all religions, communities and their cultures and traditions. The stories that are on our service are not intended to be disrespectful or hurt the sentiments of any community or group." The anime is currently streaming on Netflix in the United States.
Zed had earlier addressed the publishers of the manga Coamix and urged the company "not to trivialize Lord Shiva and other highly revered Hindu gods and goddesses in its manga publications."
The Shūmatsu no Walküre manga launched in Comic Zenon magazine in November 2017. Umemura is writing the story, while Ajichika is drawing the art. Fukui is credited for composition. The manga depicts a character based on Hindu deity Lord Shiva as well as characters based on other figures from Hindu mythology, Greek mythology, the Bible, and Japanese history. Viz Media will begin publishing the manga in English this fall.
Section 295(A) of the Indian Penal Code outlaws "outraging the religious feelings of any class of [citizens of India]" with "deliberate and malicious intention."
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology in India issued the "Information Technology (Guidelines for Intermediaries and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021" on February 25. The guidelines detail a framework for regulating online streaming platforms or OTT (over-the-top) platforms in India. The guidelines hold intermediaries such as social media websites and online streaming platforms “liable in any proceedings relating to any relevant third-party information, data or communication link made available or hosted by that intermediary where he fails to ensure that such intermediary observes due diligence while discharging its duties under the Act” and lay out a three-tier framework that necessitates the appointment of a grievance officer.
Rajan Zed has previously released statements regarding the depiction of the Hindu deity Krishna in Sega's Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final role-playing video game, the character "Apocalypse" in the X-Men: Apocalypse film, and the depiction of the goddess Kali in the Smite multiplayer online battle arena game.
