The God of High School has become a major player in Crunchyroll's original series roster, with the anime adaptation being brought to life by Studio MAPPA. While the first season consisted of thirteen episodes following the brutal tournament involving young brawlers vying for supremacy, many chapters from the WEBTOON have yet to be animated, though this story is now set to draw to a close. Announcing that the comic will end with its latest chapter, an epilogue is already in the works.
The God of High School wasn't just a major original for Crunchyroll but also helped to bring Studio MAPPA to the attention of many fans, with the series predating the animation studio's work on Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan's Final Season respectively. Since coming to an end in 2020, the series has yet to receive the green light for a second season, though considering the streaming service announced earlier this year that Tower of God would be returning for a second season, years following its introduction, this is a case of "never say never".
WEBTOON shared the unfortunate news that The God of High School was coming to an end via its Official Twitter Account, while also letting fans know to keep an eye out for an upcoming epilogue that should wrap a bow on the proceedings of the popular comic:

The anime adaptation for The God of High School is currently available on Crunchyroll, which created the original series based on the Webtoon that debuted in 2011, and the official description from the streaming service reads as such:
"Jin Mori has proclaimed himself the strongest high schooler. His life changes when he's invited to participate in "God of High School," a tournament to determine the strongest high schooler of all. He's told that if he wins, any wish he makes will be granted... All the participants are powerful contenders who fight their hardest for their own wishes. What awaits them at the end of the tournament? A chaotic battle between unbelievably strong high school students is about to begin!"
How do you predict Jin Mori's story will come to an end? Do you think we'll eventually get a season two? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics and anime.
