We already know that The Master of Ragnarok and Blesser of Einherjar (Hyakuren no Haou to Seiyaku no Valkyria) will start airing in July 2018. We are now being introduced to the six main characters, which are made up of five pretty girls and a handsome hero.
This series is based on a light novel by Seiichi Takayama (story) and Yukisan (art) and mixes Viking goddesses and Japanese heroes to present a fun adventure with lots of pretty girls. The main character, Yuuto, has to learn the hard way that some urban legends are best left untested. His childhood friend Mutsuki Shimoya wants to test one of those legends and he ends up being whisked off into another world, which seems to be awfully similar to the Norse myths he knows. And all that only because he took a selfie through a local shrine’s divine mirror! He uses his knowledge from his world and soon finds himself at the top of the Okami clan, who took him in.
Those who can’t wait for the anime to start can also read the light novel at J-Novel Club!
