The plot follows a 17-year-old high school student, Jin Mori, a gifted martial artist from Seoul, South Korea, and his friends that borrow powers from mythical creatures.

The company will grant the wish of the winner, who will be entitled, ”The God of High School.”
On the journey, Jin Mori bonds with other contestants upon trying to chase the criminal who stole an old lady’s purse. This is when he meets Yu Mira, a master of the Lost Moon Light Sword Style, and Han Daewi, a practitioner of Full Contact Karate.
Meanwhile, the secret organization confronts Jin Mori’s grandfather, Jin Taejin, and uses him to kidnap Jin Mori. When Jin Mori learns about the situation, he gets motivated to win the competition and save his grandfather. After that, the contestants use the powers they get from the Gods they master during the competition.
In the end, Jin Mori is declared the winner, but instead of using his winning prize to save his grandfather, he uses it to heal the damage that happened throughout the competition.
Is The God of High School Season 2 confirmed?
The first season of The God Of High School premiered on Crunchyroll in the late summer of 2020, airing weekly through September. Unfortunately, the makers have no official word regarding the renewal of The God of High School. Thus, it is difficult to say when will the new season be aired.
What are the factors with regard to anime shows? Well, first is the popularity and how well the public received the show. And second, is whether there is remaining source material to be adapted. In this case, plenty of source material is left to pull from, as the comic upon which “The God of High School” is based remains ongoing.
The official, The God of High School Twitter account has stopped posting since March 2021. In the fifth Crunchoryll anime award, they got nominated for the best animation, fight scene, and score. With the highly coveted awards they received that year, there may be a green light for season 2.
