Generally, anime is based on manga or light novels, although it can be original work too. But, it can be said that the setting is usually based on Japan.
That’s why 2020 has been a great year for South Korea since three major titles in the Webtoon industry got their own anime adaptations. It happened from the Spring into the Fall Anime Season for Tower of God, The God of High School, and Noblesse.
From those well-known titles, the God of High School came as the sole anime whose platform was broadly available. It aired in July 2020 on Crunchyroll and Muse Asia.
The series got a lot of praise when it first aired because of a stunning fight they offered in the first episode. The battle animation was also praised and made the anime a runner-up in the Best Animation category in the 5th Crunchyroll Anime Awards.
However, is the achievement good enough to get them a second season?

The God of High School Season 2 Release Date
Unfortunately, there is no clear indication that this anime will get a second season. The official GOHS Twitter account has stopped posting as of March 2021.
In the 5th Crunchyroll Anime Awards, they were nominated for the best animation, best fight scene, and best score. With the highly coveted award they received that year, the anime may be greenlit for season 2.
This article will be updated following the latest news of the series.
The God of High School Season 2 Trailer
Because there isn’t any news about the second season of the God of High School, there isn’t much to show at the moment.
Watch the final trailer of the God of High School season 1 to reminisce about the series. Or you can directly re-watch the entire series on Crunchyroll and Muse Asia.
The God Of High School Story
The story of GOHS follows the youth of Taekwondo practitioner Jin Mori. One day, he gets an invitation to the God of High School tournament, attended by other High School students in Korea.
On his way to the venue, he bonds with other contestants upon trying to chase a 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.
Throughout the competition, they slowly realize that there is more than meets the eye. The committee of the tournament has a hidden agenda. They are looking for a “key,” which is supposedly in the possession of one of the contestants.
Meanwhile, the secret organization, Nox, confronts Jin Mori’s grandfather, Jin Taejin. They successfully apprehend Jin Taejin and use him as a token to kidnap Jin Mori. After learning about the situation, Jin Mori gets motivated to win the competition and save his grandfather.
From that point, the atmosphere of battle changes. The contestants no longer rely on just their physical abilities. The use of Charyeok, power borrowed from ancient gods, becomes a staple ability they have to master during the competition.
When the competition is almost finished, Jegal Taek goes crazy and attacks another competitor. The chaos spreads when Nox appears out of nowhere and starts rioting.
In the end, Jin Mori and his friend subdue Jegal Taek, and Jin Mori is declared the winner. Instead of using the winning prize to save his grandfather, he uses it to heal the damage that Jegal Taek caused.
The God Of High School Season 2 Expectations
The God of Highschool was based on a manhwa created by YongJe Park. It debuted on April 2011 on Webtoon. Season one of GOHS covers 112 chapters of the manhwa series.
The last episode of the anime covers the National Competition arc. If the anime follows the storyline of the webtoon, the next arc will cover the Jin Taejin arc.
Jin Taejin is sent to North Korea because due to an enormous energy reading emanating from there. When he gets closer to the hotspot, there is a massive gorilla instead of a nuclear missile.
After a series of confrontations with the monkey and enemies, he receives a crystal that contains the infantile Jin Mori.
As of now, the God of High School manhwa is almost finished, as the conclusion of the series is at work.
Hopefully, the final chapter of this 11-year-old manhwa will contain some good news about the second season of the anime series.
We’ll update this news piece once the second season has been announced.
