The official site and Twitter account of Record of Ragnarok have confirmed that the second season of the series will be released on January 26, 2023. The upcoming season will be divided into two parts, with the first consisting of ten episodes. The remaining five episodes will be released throughout the year. Just like the previous season, the second season will be streamed on Netflix.
Record of Ragnarok is a Japanese manga written by Shinya Umemura and Takumi Fukui. The series aired in November 2017 in the Monthly Comic Zenon magazine and is currently in its sixteenth volume. The unique concept of the series was praised by the fans which led to the announcement of its anime adaptation in December 2020. Then, in August 2021, the show was greenlit for a second season but at that time the release date was not confirmed.
To commemorate the release date announcement, a new trailer and key visual for the second season have also been released, showcasing the battle between gods and mankind. Multiple characters from the series can be seen fighting each other, with the most prominent being Shiva versus Hercules. Other characters that appear in the trailer are Jack the Ripper, Buddha, Zeus, Odin, Goll and many more. The opening theme of the series is “Rude, Loose Dance” by Minami, while the ending theme is titled “Inori”, performed by Masatoshi Ono.
Yumeta Company will join the studio Graphinica for the animation of the second season. Almost all of the main cast and staff from the previous season will return, and there will also be a few new faces added to the team, including Yuka Yamada, who will join Fudeyasu as a writer. Other cast members include Masao Okhubo to direct, Masaki Sato as character designer, Koji Takanashi will handle the music department, and Shrimp and Seaweed will take over as sound director.
