Crunchyroll’s upcoming “The God of High School“ series has shown fans just what they can expect, thanks to a new exciting teaser trailer.
The God of High School | OFFICIAL TEASER
Explosive battles are ahead, as three teenagers are in for the fight of their lives in a tournament like no other! The series also had its main cast revealed:
Jin Mori – “A sixteen-year-old whose taekwondo, which he learned from his grandfather, makes him undefeatable. Nothing is more important to him than being the best fighter of all, and his current record out of 299 fights is 297 wins and 2 draws. He decides to participate in the God of High School tournament, an interdisciplinary martial arts competition, after suffering the first loss of his life against Judge R, one of the tournament’s judges.”
Han Daewi – “One of the ‘Mad Cows,’ a duo that once controlled the entire Gangnam area. He’s been working part-time jobs to pay the medical bills for his partner in the duo, who fell ill with an incurable disease, but the part-time work available to high schoolers is barely enough to cover the daily medical bills and won’t cover a cure. He joins GOH after being told that he can save his friend if he wins.”
Yoo Mira – “The 25th Master of the Moon Light Sword Style. She pretends to be a fragile high schooler, but she has the strength to easily overpower an entire group of delinquents in a fight. She prefers guys who are macho, because she’s been told that she needs to marry a man strong enough to help her resurrect her family’s sword style. For that reason, she’s participating in GOH to find a potential husband.”
The series is based on The God of High School comic by Yongje Park and published by WEBTOON. It became a quick favorite for its intense action scenes and well designed/written characters. Sunghoo Park is set to direct (previously working on anime fan favorites like Yuri!!! on ICE), with character designs by Akita Manabu. Animation for the series is being produced by MAPPA.
The God of High School is another amazing entry in the Crunchyroll Originals line-up that has included Tower of God and In/Spectre.
