Storyline of The God of High School anime:
We can say that martial arts and supernatural things are fully filled in The God of High School anime. The story revolves around the main protagonist, Mori Jin. Mori Jin is a 17-year-old martial artist from Seoul, South Korea. The anime starts by showing Mori getting invited to a Martial Arts Tournament, The God of High School. This was initially organized by crooked associations. These associations gather all the high school martial arts students. They train them to succeed from state to national levels. Further the associations choose only three for the World tournament. And without any arguments, the winner gets whatever he desires.
Later, Mori joins the tournament. But he then realizes that he has to fight with influential martial artists. He has to face fury from supernatural powers as from gods, demons, etc.
He fights with two other martial arts prodigies. Those are: a Karate expert, Daewi Han, and an epeeist, Master Mira Yoo. But, these two great artists become friends with Mori after the fight. All three get selected as a strong Korean Team for the World Tournament. We see many conspiracies between the competitors as the preliminary rounds come near. Thus the story gets more exciting.
The chances for ‘The God of High School’ Season 2:
All genres of anime are generally produced to make profits. This drives more and more sales for the adaptation source material. We can say, the possibility of any anime’s next season depends on some factors. Those are:
- availability of the source material
- the popularity
- demand for more seasons
Thus, we have analyzed the above factors for The God of High School.
Let’s talk about the source material first. We have to say that there is no shortage of source material. The manhwa on which ‘The God of High School’ anime is based is still getting published. And yes, around 528 chapters have been published. The first season was able to adapt just 111 chapters. Hence, there is a lot of source material left for next season.
Coming to the popularity and demand factor. The God of High School, indeed, was one of the most popular anime series of the year 2020. The first season gained a lot of fans and huge viewership around the world. All the fans are super eager and are waiting for the second season.
And now, let’s discuss profit. So far, there is no issue with the profit factor. The God of High School webtoon makes a huge profit. The game is popular too. So if we coupled it with revenue gained by anime, it is definitely a win all the way.
So we just analyzed all three factors. The source material availability, profits, and hype, is all success there is no doubt. So God of High School has a great chance to return with its second season. There is enough source material, i.e., manhwa chapters, for the next season. The first season gathered quite a lot of fans. This resulted in huge profits for the producers. And yes, the buzz and hype for the second season are at greater level. All these factors will surely encourage the makers to go ahead with the next season.
The God of High School Season 2 Release Date:
Not highlighting any rumours now. Let us tell you that studio MAPAA has not officially announced ‘The God of High School’ Season 2. Anime sequels indeed take time to get new upcoming seasons.
There hasn’t been a very long time yet. It’s not even two years since the last episode of the first season got released. So for now, expecting anything about the second season would be too hasty. Thus sit back, relax and hope for the best for now.
We are quite sure that the anime series will get a new season. According to some reports, MAPAA has already started working on The God of High School season 2. It will release the second season in the second quarter of 2022. Still, there are some fans who wouldn’t wait for long. So we would like to suggest for them that they should take a look at its manhwa webtoon.
The God of High School Season 2 Plot:
Well, it’s difficult to predict the plot of the second season. The first season indeed covered a complete story arc. During the climax, the warrior Taek (Kenjiro Tsuda) transforms into a god. He opens the powers. He unleashes it on Mori and his friends. This makes Mori unlock his memories. He remembers that he is not a mortal high school student. He remembers the great god Sun Wukong, aka the Monkey King.
Mori directs his powers to attack Taek. Taek eventually transforms into a monster. With the help of his friends, Mori beats Taek. Then he becomes the winner of The God of High School tournament.
It looks like the story has come to an end. However, the first season concludes with Daewi and Mira. They tell Mori that he must travel to his homeland to fully remember his memories as a god. So, we are expecting Mori to travel to his homeland. And, he may discover new adventures.
How many episodes can we expect in The God Of High Season 2?
We already know that the first season of the anime series consisted of 13 episodes from the manhwa. It initially aired from June 6, 2020, to September 28, 2020. Hence, we expect that the studio will follow the same pattern for the next season. Around 13 episodes from the TGOH manhwa can be also adapted for the anime’s next season.
You can watch the first season of The God of High School English Dubbed on Crunchyroll and HBO Max.
