With so much anime being developed and imported on a regular basis, it was only a matter of time before sites that specialize in distributing and streaming anime began adapting originals as well. In 2020, Crunchyroll debuted its first slate of original content. “The God of High School,” an action-packed martial arts anime based on Park Yongje’s manhwa of the same name and published by Webtoon, was one of the shows making its debut.
Jin Mori, a 17-year-old high school student and skilled martial artist from Seoul, South Korea, and his pals fight in a competition sponsored by a shadowy organization to discover who is the strongest high schooler of them all. The winner of the tournament, dubbed “The God of High School,” will have their request granted without inquiry by the firm.
When it originally aired, the 13-episode first season, which featured MAPPA animation (“Yuri!!! on Ice,” “Attack on Titan“), was well-received. Fans are now buzzing, wondering if and when another season will be released.

When it comes to anime renewals, there are a few things to consider, such as the show’s popularity and whether or not there is any left source material to adapt. Because the comic on which “The God of High School” is based is still running, there is plenty of source material to draw from. Meanwhile, the anime was well-received and continues to attract new viewers.
“The God of High School” started on Crunchyroll in late summer 2020, with new episodes airing weekly until September. Unfortunately, no official word on a Season 2 renewal for “The God of High School” has come from the powers that be. As a result, it’s difficult to predict when new episodes will air.
The God Of High School Season 2 Cast
In terms of the cast, Tatsumaru Tachibana, who plays protagonist Jin Mori, is expected to return in a possible second season, while Han Daewi (Kentarô Kumagai) and Yu Mira (Ayaka Ohashi), Mori’s two friends who also compete in the series’ central tournament, are also likely to return.
Everything else is up in the air, though Season 1 of “The God of High School” is presently streaming on Crunchyroll and HBO Max if you want to see it in the meanwhile.
