The video shows the first five minutes of the pilot episode of “The God of High School.” The show opens with a chase sequence featuring a thief and the titular character Jin Mori.

Jin is on his bicycle, trying to beat the morning traffic when a thief snatches an old lady’s purse. The hero follows the thief in an attempt to recover the stolen item. The scene offers a glimpse of what fans can expect from the show in terms of action.

“The God of High School” revolves around Jin, who believes that he is the strongest high schooler. But his life takes a turn when he is invited to participate in the prestigious God of High School fighting tournament.

Tatsumaru Tachibana (Jin Mori) spoke with Crunchyroll and talked about his character. “The character I play, Mori, is very lively and cheerful, and he is quite a battle freak. But he is also the kind of guy who can make friends with anyone. He is a very warm-hearted protagonist,” Tachibana said.

The cast of “The God of High School” includes Kentaro Kumagai as Han Daewi and Park Ilpyo, Ayaka Ohashi as Yoo Mira and Park Mujin as Daisuke Namikawa.

Manabu Akita is responsible for character designing while the art direction department is headed by Kuniko Iwatani and Sachiko Nishiguchi. The original score is composed by Arisa Okehazama. The opening theme is performed by KSUKE, and the closing theme is by CIX. “The God of High School” is produced at MAPPA Studio. The series debuts July 6 on Crunchyroll.
