Earlier this week, the 21st volume of Tozen Ujiie’s Seitokai Yakuindomo manga announced that the manga will end in this year’s 51st issue of Weekly Shōnen Magazine, which will ship in November with its 22nd volume.

Takatoshi Tsuda is pushed into becoming the vice president of the student council, where he is the lone male member surrounded by girls.
Record of Ragnarok Season 2 Announced
The official website for the anime adaptation of Shinya Umemura, Ajichika, and Takumi Fukui’s Record of Ragnarok (Shūmatsu no Walküre) manga via ANN announced that the anime will receive a second season. Anime character designer Masaki Sato drew an illustration to celebrate the news.
The first season debuted on Netflix worldwide on June 17. Warner Bros. Japan describes the anime as:
7 million Years of Human Civilization is coming to an end…
Every 1000 years, all the Gods of the world gather in heaven to attend the “Conference of Mankind Survival”.
All the Gods agree to bring an ultimate end to the mankind due to their past foolish acts but before the final verdict is made, Brunhild, the eldest of the 13 Valkyrie sisters make and objection.
“To spice things up, why donʼt you test humans?”
Her proposal was to have God vs Humanityʼs final struggle also known as the “Ragnarok”, where all the Gods from the world and champions from the entire human history enters 1 on 1 battle. The first team to win 7 battles out of 13 will be the winner.
It seems almost impossible for the humans to win against the Gods.
Although Gods sneer at them, Brunhild makes further provocation;
“Are you chickening out?”
That touches Godsʼ nerves and they accept her proposal in anger.
Therefore, Brunhild and her sisters must choose 13 of the strongest champions throughout the human history.
Will humans surpass Gods and make an stop to the ultimate end?
The eschatological battles between heaven and earth finally begin!
