The God of High School may not have come from Japan, but its anime looks impossibly good thanks to its latest trailer. The series was born in South Korea and follows the life of several students who wish to be known as the most powerful high schooler in the country. Crunchyroll and Webtoon teamed up with MAPPA Studios in Japan to create an anime for the beloved manhwa, and it is breathtakingly impressive to put simply.
For those who do not know, the most recent trailer for the anime went live not long ago. The God of High School shared a full-length trailer introducing more of its staff and stars. The video, which can be seen above, showcases the gorgeous action sequences seeded in the anime. And if The God of High School has much to say, then those fight scenes barely scratch the surface of what's to come.
The trailer begins with the lead Jin Mori standing before his mentor looking all sad. With headgear covering his brown locks, Mori is encouraged to train harder than ever, and that advice sticks with the kid. The next time the trailer pans to the boy, he is a full-grown teenager, and he has clearly been practicing street fighting and then some.
The God of High School also introduces some other key characters in this trailer such as Han Daewi and Yoo Mira. These two may be students just like Mori, but they are in a league of their own when it comes to challenging the God of High School competition. They have their respective skills, and Mira is only slightly less scary when she is fantasizing about shirtless boys.
