The human civilization which has lasted 7 million years is coming to an end…
Every 1000 years, all of the World’s Gods gather in heaven for the “Conference for the Survival of Humanity.”
Because of humanity’s past foolish deeds, all of the Gods agree to put an end to humanity but Brunhild, the eldest of the 13 Valkyrie sisters opposes before the final judgment is reached.
“Why don’t you put humans to the test to spice things up?”
In the last battle known as “Ragnarok” all of the World’s Gods and champions from all of human history would face off in a 1-1 fight. The team that wins 7 out of 13 games will be the winner.
It seems almost impossible for humans to defeat the gods.
Brunhild continues to tease them, despite the gods’ mockery.
“Are you huddled?”
This irritates the Gods and they angrily accept her proposal.
Therefore Brunhild and her sisters must therefore choose 13 of the most powerful champions in human history.
Will mankind triumph over the gods and bring the end of the world to a halt?
The ultimate battle between heaven and earth finally begins!
