God of High School Release Date: When will it premiere?
Written by Yongje Park, ‘God of High School’ was first released as a South Korean Webtoon which came out back in April 2011. By critics and readers alike, the webtoon was very well received. Later in 2015, a mobile game version of it was also released by a South Korean game development company. Following this, the game’s soundtrack, sung by Younha, was also featured on Youtube in 2016 and it has now garnered millions of views.
So unsurprisingly, fans of the webtoon were starting to demand an anime adaptation of the same. The good news is that its anime adaptation has now been confirmed. Moreover, fans of its original webtoon don’t have to wait for too long as it has now been confirmed that the first season of ‘The God of High School’ is scheduled to release on July 6, 2020. Just last year, in October, Crunchyroll had confirmed that it would be teaming up with Webtoon to co-produce new content. So clearly, shows like ‘God of High School’ and ‘Tower of God‘ are a part of this big project.
