The God of Highschool is probably the second or third anime of this year that has gained popularity despite being completely new. So, in this article, we are going to confirm if there will be a God of High School Season 2, if yes then what will be its release date?
It has been a weak year in terms of new anime released – only a handful hit home and these are the ones that will stand the test of time. Even though only a few worthwhile anime got released, year 2020 was the year of webtoons getting animated.
Alongside God Of High School, we saw webtoons like Noblesse and Tower Of God getting animated as well and the fans loved it. Tower Of God Season 2 is expected to release at the same time as the upcoming GOH Season 2.
When it comes to action, there are way too many anime to cloud someone’s judgment. Among these, hand to hand combat is exceptionally good and has its own fanbase. But only a few of them are truly good – Dragon ball, Kengan Ashura, Baki, etc are the forerunners.
Enter The God of Highschool, an anime filled with phenomenal sakuga usage and amazing fight choreography.
Pure, unadulterated one on one fights can get boring very soon – it needs several layers to shine up to its full potential – and The God of Highschool has that in abundance.
With the introduction of the Borrowed Power and Genuine Fighter power system, it added depth to its fights. Coupled with the steady storyline, it has done a very impressive job.
Is The God of High School Season 2 Coming?
The main purpose of these type of anime is to direct more and more people towards the source material. And The God of Highschool does it perfectly – it keeps the fights and pulls out a single chunk of the main story.
The common fan gets to know that there is more story behind these episodes and they immediately jump to the webtoon. Mission accomplished!
Next, there is the popularity factor. Besides the Tower of God, The God of Highschool is one of the forerunners for the 2020s most popular original series. It has gathered millions of views collectively on Crunchyroll and Muse Asia. Going forward, there will be DVD releases and if they sell well, a sequel is very likely.
Some fans even took to Twitter to share their love for the first season of God Of High School anime and their excitement for upcoming Season 2.
Next, there is the funding issue. Yongje Park’s manhwa is quite famous on its own. Coupled with the revenue collected by the anime, we are hoping there will be enough funding to release a sequel. Plus, Crunchyroll has started investing in Korean webtoons.
So from the above parts, we can conclude that The God of High School Season 2 is likely to happen. Of course, there is no sure-fire way to predict this – often unpopular anime get a sequel and popular anime don’t. But we can look at the symbols and judge the probability.
Following the path of God Of High School turned into anime, we expect many more webtoons to follow the path and on the top of list is unOrdinary anime.
The God of High School Season 2 Release Date and Announcement
As of now, there is no announcement of a sequel. But that is only natural – at this time, the first season is still airing. It will be a while before a sequel is announced. And therefore, the release date is completely unknown.
According to unofficial sources, The God Of High School second season will release or air sometime around June-July 2022. It will have 13 episodes just like the first season and will cover the Ragnarok arc and will be available to watch on Crunchyroll.
Now, with Crunchyroll at the helm – their new venture to adapt webtoons will still be going; they’ll be the Licensor. Next, there is Naver Webtoon to be a producer, alongside Sola. We believe Studio MAPPA will be the one to create it.
Here’s the official trailer.
GOH Season 2 Plot
The God of Highschool is a Korean Webtoon by Yongje Park, published on Naver and Webtoon. It is a combat series revolving around Mori Jin, Daewi Han and Mira Yoo.
The trio participates in a countrywide fighting tournament and the winner gets to have any wish granted. As the tournament progresses, incredibly dark secrets are unveiled, both inside and outside our protagonists!
Season 1 has adapted up to the National Arc. It’s a great spot to end; a major plot point is ending and we are about to move on to higher dimensions. New concepts are about to arrive. Now admittedly, the anime has distilled the plot, only keeping the absolute main thread. This exclusion can lead to some connectivity issues in the sequel.
The God Of High School Season 2, if it comes, will pick up the story at The Gods Arrival arc. In its prologue, it will set up its Ragnarok saga and proceed to show an epic war in the main chunk of the episodes. Given the normal pace of the anime, which is quite high, the whole Ragnarok Saga can be adapted into the second season.
The God Of High School S2 Cast
We expect most of the main cast to reprise their roles along with new additions for new characters. The OP ‘Contradiction’ gained immense popularity and the views for the video on youtube went up exponentially.
- We expect Tachibana Tatsumaru to return as Jin Mori.
- Kumagai Kentaro will be returning as Daewi Han.
- Ohashi Ayaka will be back to play Mira Yoo.
- Namikawa Daisuke will be playing Park Mugen.
- Uchiyama Keiki will be back as Park Ilpyo.
We expect the next year to be full of great anime, Berserk Season 3 and Chainsaw man anime might also get released. We will keep you updated if we hear any new information, so stay tuned and don’t forget to bookmark and share this article with your friends online.
