Crunchyroll has released a brand-new trailer for their upcoming original series, The God of High School! In addition, the voice acting cast has also been revealed for the show’s main characters! The trailer focuses on Jin Mori who is a carefree and easy-going character who loves to fight using Taekwondo, Han Daewi who is a compassionate Kyokushin karate user who values his friends, and Yoo Mira who is a Moonlight sword user determined to carry out her family’s tradition.
Crunchyroll profiles the characters as follows:
Jin Mori: A sixteen-year-old whose taekwondo, which he learned from his grandfather, makes him undefeatable. Nothing is more important to him than being the best fighter of all, and his current record out of 299 fights is 297 wins and 2 draws. He decides to participate in the God of High School tournament, an interdisciplinary martial arts competition, after suffering the first loss of his life against Judge R, one of the tournament’s judges.
Yoo Mira: The 25th Master of the Moon Light Sword Style. She pretends to be a fragile high schooler, but she has the strength to easily overpower an entire group of delinquents in a fight. She prefers guys who are macho, because she’s been told that she needs to marry a man strong enough to help her resurrect her family’s sword style. For that reason, she’s participating in GOH to find a potential husband.
Han Daewi: One of the “Mad Cows,” a duo that once controlled the entire Gangnam area. He’s been working part-time jobs to pay the medical bills for his partner in the duo, who fell ill with an incurable disease, but the part-time work available to high schoolers is barely enough to cover the daily medical bills and won’t cover a cure. He joins GOH after being told that he can save his friend if he wins.
Jin will be voiced by Tatsumaru Tachibana (Case File n°221: Kabukicho as Tarotarou Kobayashi, Alchemist Code (Stage Play) as Kudanstein), whereas Han will be voiced by Kentaro Kumagai (Tsuredere Children as Hakuhiko Takase, Record of Grancrest War as Theo Cornaro, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blood Orphans as Aston Altland, Hinomaru Sumo as Yuuma Gojou), and Yoo Mira will be voiced by Ayaka Ohashi (Aikatsu! as Ran Shibuki, THE IDOLM@STER: CINDERELLA GIRLS as Uzuki Shinamura, BanG Dream! as Saaya Yamabuki, Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story as Kaede Akino)
Based on The God of Highschool comic by Yongje Park, Crunchyroll describes the anime adaptation as follows:
“The God of High School” is an action-packed series that follows a high schooler and his friends as they compete in an epic tournament, borrowing power directly from the gods and uncovering a mysterious organization along the way… With the promise of their heart’s deepest desires, motivating their tournament victory.
The series is set to premiere in July during the Summer Anime Season! You can check out the teaser trailer for the show below:
