Check out the preview below, then read on for details!
The main cast includes:
Tatsumaru Tachibana (Toratarou Kobayashi in Case File nº221: Kabukicho) as Jin Mori.
- Jin Mori: a sixteen-year-old whose taekwondo, which he learned from his grandfather, makes him undefeatable. Nothing is more important to him than being the best fighter of all, and his current record out of 299 fights is 297 wins and 2 draws. He decides to participate in the God of High School tournament, an interdisciplinary martial arts competition, after suffering the first loss of his life against Judge R, one of the tournament’s judges.
- Han Daewi: One of the “Mad Cows,” a duo that once controlled the entire Gangnam area. He’s been working part-time jobs to pay the medical bills for his partner in the duo, who fell ill with an incurable disease, but the part-time work available to high schoolers is barely enough to cover the daily medical bills and won’t cover a cure. He joins GOH after being told that he can save his friend if he wins.
Ayaka Ohashi (Ran Shibuki in Aikatsu!, Aki Adagaki in Masamune-kun's Revenge) as Yoo Mira.
- Yoo Mira: The 25th Master of the Moon Light Sword Style. She pretends to be a fragile high schooler, but she has the strength to easily overpower an entire group of delinquents in a fight. She prefers guys who are macho, because she’s been told that she needs to marry a man strong enough to help her resurrect her family’s sword style. For that reason, she’s participating in GOH to find a potential husband.
Key staff members at MAPPA include director Sunghoo Park (GARO -VANISHING LINE-), who also worked on the likes of Yuri!!! on ICE and Terror in Resonance in various capacities; and character designer Akita Manabu (key animation on Kakegurui, Terror in Resonance, Rage of Bahamut, and more).
