RECAP: Record of Ragnarok Chapter 79 Spoilers and What to Expect in Chapter 80
The contestants are decided. The preamble is mainly complete. The obligatory chapters between the fights seem to have cleared, and we learn about Leonidas’ brave leadership of Sparta’s 300 soldiers against a Persian invading force 1000 times its size.
The vast majority of them pulled out by order of the Spartan elders as the conflict was during a festival honoring Apollo. This creates a genuine feud between the Spartan king and the Sun God and will be a match to behold.
As the battle commences, Leonidas takes his Aspis Shield, transforms it into another weapon, and throws it at Apollo. Apollo catches it, only for Leonidas to unleash a secondary attack, quickly wounding Apollo’s face. The chapter closes as Leonidas warns Apollo, that if he plans to live, he should not stand in front of a Spartan.
Chills, I feel them coming down my spine. This is one of the most personal vendettas I’ve seen in the entire manga, and it could make for a bitter match. We’ve yet to see the full details of the fight and Apollo’s abilities, but Leonidas shows his transforming Aspis Shield which is Geirölul’s Volundr form.
It’s going to be a badass, angry fight, with the release of Record of Ragnarok Chapter 80 possibly starting the most action-packed in a while for the series.
