Jormungand (ヨルムンガンド, Yorumungando) is a manga series by Keitarou Takahashi, which was serialized in Monthly Sunday Gene-X magazine and published in North America by Viz Media. An anime television series produced by White Fox was broadcast between April and June 2012. A second season titled Jormungand: Perfect Order aired from October to December 2012. Both seasons have been licensed by Funimation in North America and Manga Entertainment in the United Kingdom for the first season.
The series follows Koko Hekmatyar, a young arms dealer who sells weapons for HCLI, an international shipping corporation run by her father that secretly deals in the arms trade. As one of the company's unofficial weapon dealers, Koko secretly sells weapons internationally while avoiding the local authorities and law enforcement as most of her work is actually illegal under international law. Traveling with her is a team of bodyguards who are mostly composed of ex-military veterans. The latest addition to her squad is Jonah, a seemingly emotionless child soldier who is skilled in combat yet ironically hates arms dealers because his parents were killed by weapons sold by Koko's brother Kasper. However in exchange for taking care of three orphans that he cared about, Jonah agreed to work for Koko as part of a deal with Kasper. What follows is Koko and her squad's escapades around the world.
