Will we ever get ‘The God of High School’ Season 2?
The animes are generally produced to make profits and drive more and more sales for the source material. The possibility of any anime’s next season depends on three factors. These are the availability of the source material, the popularity and demand for more seasons, and profitability. We have analyzed these factors for The God of High School.
There is no shortage of source material as the manhwa on which the anime is based is still going on. More than 500 chapters have been published so far. The first season adapted just 111 chapters. So, there is a lot of source material to play with.
Coming to the popularity and demand factor, The God of High School was one of the most popular anime series of 2020. The first season garnered huge viewership around the world. The fans are super excited for its second season.
There is no issue as far as the profit factor is concerned. The God of High School webtoon makes a huge profit, the game is also popular, and coupled with revenue collected by anime, it is a win all the way.
So, after evaluating all three methods, which are source material, profits, and hype, we have good news for all the fans. God of High School will, no doubt, return for its second season. We do have enough source material, i.e., manhwa chapters, for the second season. Also, the first season made quite a lot of fans, resulting in huge profits for the producers. Lastly, the buzz and hype for the second season are at another level. All these three factors would encourage the makers to go ahead with the next season.
The God of High School Season 2 Release Date
Without highlighting any rumors, we would like to tell you that studio MAPAA hasn’t officially announced ‘The God of High School’ season 2. Anime sequels generally take time to get new seasons.
As there hasn’t been a very long time, not even two years since the last episode of the first season was released, expecting anything about the second season would be too hasty. So let’s sit back, relax and hope for the best.
We are assured that the anime series would get a new season. As per some reports coming, the makers have already started working on The God of High School season 2 and it will release in the second quarter of 2022. Though still, for some fans who wouldn’t wait for long, we would like to suggest that they should take a look at its manhwa webtoon.
The God of High School Season 2 Plot
Well, it’s difficult to predict the plot of the second season as the first season covered a complete story arc. In the climax of the first season, the warrior Taek (Kenjiro Tsuda) turns into a god. He opens the powers and unleashes on Mori and his friends. This makes Mori’s unlocking his memories as he remembers that he is not a mortal high school student but the great god Sun Wukong, aka the Monkey King.
Mori directs his powers to attack Taek, who eventually transforms into a monster. With the help of his friends, Mori beats Taek, to become the winner of The God of High School tournament.
It seems that the story has come to an end. However, the first season concludes with Daewi and Mira telling Mori that he must travel to his homeland to fully recover his memories as a god. So, we are expecting Mori to travel to his homeland and discover new adventures.
How many episodes would TGOH Season 2 comprise?
We already know that the first season of the anime series consisted of 13 episodes from the manhwa, which initially aired from June 6, 2020, to September 28, 2020. Thus, we expect the studio to follow the same pattern for the second season. Around 13 episodes from the TGOH manhwa would be adapted for the anime’s second season.
