This is what Record of Ragnarok is about:
At the gathering of the gods from the most diverse mythologies, it is decided that humanity should be wiped out. Because of the destruction that mankind has caused, it has forfeited the right to exist. But before this punishment can come, a single Valkyrie suggests giving the humans one last chance. In a final battle called Ragnarök, 13 human champions will face off against 13 gods. Can the brave fighters still somehow avert the impending downfall of mankind?
