Seiichi Takayama’s fantasy light novel series The Master of Ragnarök & Blesser of Einherjar is coming to TV in Japan this July, bringing with it an isekai story dipped in an extra large vat of Norse mythology. The official website recently popped up a teaser for the series, introducing its trio of main characters in the process.
The leads introduced so far include Yuuto Suoh (voiced by Koudai Sakai), Felicia (Rie Suegara), and Sigrun (Arisa Date). Check out the brief preview below.
EMT Squared (URAHARA) is producing the anime, with Kousuke Kobayashi (Idol Time PriPara) on board as director, Natsuko Takahashi (In Another World with My Smartphone) on series composition, and Mariko Ito (Vivid Strike!) adapting the novel series’ character designs.
Here’s how publisher Hobby Japan describes the story:
Some urban legends are best left untested!
Yuuto Suoh gets more than he bargained for when he joins his childhood friend Mitsuki Shimoya in testing out an urban legend. When he uses his phone to take a picture of himself with the local shrine’s divine mirror, he is whisked off into another world –one heavily steeped in the lore of the old Norse myths. Using his knowledge gained from school and from his solar-powered smartphone, he has the chance to bring the Wolf Clan, the same people who cared for him, to prominence, all while earning the adoration of a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens known as the Einherjar.
