The "God of High School" tournament has begun, seeking out the greatest fighter among Korean high school students! All martial arts styles, weapons, means, and methods of attaining victory are permitted. The prize? One wish for anything desired by the winner.

Taekwondo expert Jin Mo-Ri is invited to participate in the competition. There he befriends karate specialist Han Dae-Wi and swordswoman Yu Mi-Ra, who both have entered for their own personal reasons. Mo-Ri knows that no opponent will be the same and that the matches will be the most ruthless he has ever fought in his life. But instead of being worried, this prospect excites him beyond belief.

A secret lies beneath the facade of a transparent test of combat prowess the tournament claims to be—one that has Korean political candidate Park Mu-Jin watching every fight with expectant, hungry eyes. Mo-Ri, Dae-Wi, and Mi-Ra are about to discover what it really means to become the God of High School.

The God of High School is a South Korean manhwa released as a webtoon and illustrated by Yongje Park. While receiving a mobile game adaptation and an ONA short attached to said mobile game, it eventually got a proper television adaptation animated by MAPPA that aired from July to September 2020.

The plot is about as straight-forward as you can expect it to be with that kind of title. The God of High School is a South Korean national martial arts tournament in which high school students from all around the country participate. The rules and limitations of the tournament are pretty daft and ridiculous, but ...

Mixed Feelings
The animation was absolutely amazing and the story seemed like it could have been interesting. and the characters were likeable, but it felt like they shoved 100 chapters into 12 episodes, which was horrible. While the characters and story seemed like they could have been interesting and/or likeable, there was no time for story or character development, and we barely got to see them with how short they made it. If you enjoy fight scenes you'll probably like parts of this show, but if you're in it for story, or even both, its just not good. Could have been at least an 8.5 if they ...

I was honestly here for the fight scenes and the animation. It was just a pleasure to watch but not much else to be honest.

Storyline is giving very cultish vibes and is just not really interesting and there doesn't seem to be much growth both in characters and fighting skills.

Any level up is just something they are born with and unlock and I really hate when people don't really earn what they have. If that is the case they should at least have to work hard to master it.

Show had nice animation and hype but no substance.
