Crunchyroll has premieed a new trailer for THE GOD OF HIGH SCHOOL that highlights the three main characters and their unique fighting styles.
THE GOD OF HIGH SCHOOL tells the story of three main characters who participate in a martial arts tournament — Jin Mori, Han Daewi, and Yoo Mira.
• 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.
THE GOD OF HIGH SCHOOL is an action-packed series that follows a high schooler and his friends as they compete in an epic tournament, borrowing power directly from the gods and uncovering a mysterious organization along the way… With the promise of their heart’s deepest desires, motivating their tournament victory.
The series is based on The God of High School comic created by Yongje Park and published by WEBTOON.
Animation for THE GOD OF HIGH SCHOOL is produced by MAPPA.
THE GOD OF HIGH SCHOOL will premiere exclusively on Crunchyroll this July.
