Record of Ragnarok has been one of those manga series that fans have been dying to see animated, with the action-packed series pitting humanity against the gods to determine the future of the Earth, but it seems as if the recent Netflix release has animation that is leaving many viewers perplexed. During one of the biggest battles, fans noticed that the animation in the animated series looks akin to still images rather than containing fluid motions, leaving many fans believing that Netflix's latest adaptation isn't able to capture the spirit of the manga from which it was based.
Twitter User Otaku Tweets shared the aforementioned animation from Record of Ragnarok, leaving many anime fans debating if the long-awaited series should have been "left in the over" just a little bit longer before hitting its release date:

It is painful to say
I've watched up to the conclusion of the first fight and like
The series feels like what happened with the Junji Ito anime adaptation
