It’s time to meet the crew of The God of High School in Crunchyroll’s latest trailer for the series. Like the recent hit, Tower of God, The God of High School is based on an acclaimed Korean Webtoon series. Originally created by Yongje Park, God of High School follows a group of teens competing in tournament of epic proportions, drawing on godly power in hopes to win their heart’s deepest desires. It looks hyper focused on its colorful cast – but way more in tune with high-octane, Shonen-esque action.
In this admittedly rad trailer, Studio MAPPA shows off a few of the characters with their preferred fighting styles – and Crunchyroll provides a bit more info on the cast with a set of promotional trading cards.
The God of High School is a Crunchyroll exclusive anime, made in collaboration with Webtoon, and directed by Sunghoo Park, who worked in key animation on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood and on Yuri!!! On Ice. Look for it on Crunchyroll this July, and be sure to check out all the character bios, trading cards – and trailer – below.
Jin Mori – A sixteen-year-old whose renewal 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 Woo Seung-Tae, 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 been training since she was a child and has become a skilled sword player. She prefers guys who are tough and strong, 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.
