RECAP: Record of Ragnarok Chapter 80 Spoilers, Raw Scans, and What to Expect in Chapter 81
As leaks and raw scans pour in from readers of the Japanese release, there are scenes particularly focused on Apollo at the start of Round 9. It looks to explore his story in Record of Ragnarok as a radiant son of Olympus, and in the context of this tournament, as an agile fighter. This runs counter to how the fight started in Chapter 79.
Leonidas attacks with his Aspis Shield in a flurry of swings, only for Apollo to dodge each one. He appears uninjured and manages to land a hell of a punch on the Spartan king. But in the release of Record of Ragnarok Chapter 81, following the series’ typical pattern, we’ll likely see more of Leonidas’ story soon, and perhaps the tables will turn.
