The God of Highschool Anime Episode 1 update
The God of Highschool anime episode 1 is scheduled to be released in July 2020. Even though the anime has confirmed that it will air from July 2020, there doesn’t seem to be any certainty in whatever is being announced these days because it of the Coronavirus pandemic aka Covid19 pandemic going on. The release of different manga and anime has already become a trend and it will be carrying on in the same manner for Allah knows for how long.
I personally do not want the hopes of the fans of The God of Highschool to skyrocket but it is certainly possible that even this show will be delayed due to Covid19 pandemic. Now, let us talk more in detail about The God of Highschool below.
The God of Highschool Details
The director of The God of Highschool anime is going to be Sunghoo Park. Music of the anime is being provided by Arisa Okehazama. Studio making the anime will be MAPPA. You will be able to watch The God of Highschool anime episode 1 via Crunchyroll with ease provided it is launched in July 2020 only. So, what is the plot and story of The God of Highschool all about?
This story is about a seventeen-year-old boy who is pretty good at martial arts. This kid is callee up for a school martial arts tournament which is certainly a big deal because this tournament which is at the school level, winners will be selected for national levels and then even international levels. It is thus indeed a pretty prestigious tournament. Then we will get to see the protagonist doing his best after participating in it and also we’ll see different styles of fighting.
Apart from martial arts, we see more forms of fighting. Most interesting seems the borrowed form in which participants have superpowers which they borrow from various supernatural creatures. Even though it sounds cool but since it false and fiction it doesn’t interest truth-loving humans like me. Nonetheless, this puts an interesting twist in the story of The God of Highschool. While the protagonist who is named Jin Mo-Ri fights in the tournament alone at the start.
Later he befriends some characters who then become his teammates in the future. These two friends of his are full-contact Karate user Han Dae-Wi and epeeist master Yu Mi-Ra. These two are seemingly no pushovers as well. The protagonist has one goal in his mind and that is to progress in the competition. Do let us know your thoughts regarding the plot in the comments section down below. Now, let us talk about the characters that are involved in this series.
