So, ah… why do I get the feeling that this isn’t a series that people think hard about?

Seiichi Takayama and illustrator Yukisan’s The Master of Ragnarok & Blesser of Einherjar originally launched under Hobby Japan’s main imprint on July 31, 2013. Fourteen volumes have been released to date, with the most recent shipping to retailers on Halloween 2017.
J-Novel Club currently holds the rights to the title, which they describe as:
Some urban legends are best left untested! Yuuto Suoh gets more than he bargained for when he joins his childhood friend Mitsuki Shimoya in testing out an urban legend. When he uses his phone to take a picture of himself with the local shrine’s divine mirror, he is whisked off into another world – one heavily steeped in the lore of the old Norse myths. Using his knowledge gained from school and from his solar-powered smartphone, he has the chance to bring the Wolf Clan, the same people who cared for him, to prominence, all while earning the adoration of a group of magic-wielding warrior maidens known as the Einherjar.
