A God Of High School anime was announced back in February 2020. The South Korean manhwa will be a part of the Crunchyroll Originals line-up. The source material for the anime is a manhwa, which is the equivalent of manga in Korea. While it’s used for all comics in Korea, outside it describes comics content of Korean origins only. God Of High School is an action-adventure anime coming soon to Crunchyroll, but you some folks may not be all that familiar with the franchise.
God Of High School Is From An Original Fighting Manhwa

The premise for God Of High School is pretty simple. The original manhwa came out in 2011. It is an ongoing story about a fighting tournament. The tournament is from a corporation that promises to grant the winner their wildest wish. This brings fighters of all types from all over the world. The combatants are all high school students, as the name suggests. We also know the cast list for the new show, thanks to Anime News Network. The story follows 17-year old Jin Mori, a highly-skilled fighter with an unbeaten record. However, one loss spurs him on to take part in the God Of High School tournament. Coincidentally, the loss was to one of the tournament’s own judges.
There is also Han Daewi, whose friend suffers from an incurable disease. He joins the tournament to win and make a wish to save his friend’s life. Rounding out the lead cast of characters is Yoo Mira, another 17-year-old. Being a deceptively good fighter, Mira has her own reason to join the tournament. She is looking for a husband strong enough to reclaim her family honor. She joins to vet the competition to see who is worthy of her.
The Anime Teaser Is Pure Heart-Pounding Action
The recently released God Of High School anime teaser is insanely wild. The action-packed teaser trailer wastes no time with character introductions or story. The almost 2-minute teaser is just amazing action sequences. The video tells audiences what to expect, making the show even more anticipated. The original manhwa saw the fighters take on special powers, directly from the Gods. And the visuals of this teaser definitely seem to match that level of power. The characters pitted against each other in incredible martial arts look awesome. It’s an anime that has quickly become one of my year’s most anticipated.
The God Of High School anime releases on Crunchyroll in July 2020.
