About the Anime
The anime is based on the popular Korean webcomic in which the protagonist is a 17-year-old martial artist named Jin Mo-Ri. The plot is set around a martial arts tournament called “The God of High School”. This tournament pits fighters from highschools all over South Korea in battles. The winner gets to compete in the World Tournament. He also gets a wish granted by the organizers of the tournament.
Jin enters the tournament due to an interest in fighting. He wants to fight strong opponents along the way. In this story, the power of three different realms is involved. Some of the fighters borrow powers from the Demons to fight the battles. Jin uses the fictional form of Taekwando that is called Renewal Taekwando.

Episodes 1 & 2
The first episode is titled set up/ stand up. We are introduced to Jin Mo-Ri. He was late for the preliminaries of the tournament. As he was hurrying to the arena, Jin witnesses a robbery. An old woman lost her belongings. Jin starts to chase the motorcyclist. Jin has to paddle on his bicycle to chase the motorcycle. This makes it hard for him to catch up. During this, we are introduced to two other characters who are good at martial arts and headed for the Tournament. Han Dae-Wi and Yu Mi-Ra. Han puts the final blow on the motorcyclist and the preliminaries for the Tournament start. The battle royale to chose the top fighters.
In the second episode, the 32 fighters are set in a knockout table. Jin, Han, And Yu win their fights in the start with relative ease as all of them are super strong. The most interesting round was Gang Man-Suk vs Go Gam-Do. When Gang used too much violence on Go Gam-Do after overpowering him, Jin intervenes. He has a heated battle with Gang despite the referees stopping him. After his special attack, Gang was subdued. Jin Mo-Ri was taken away with the implications that he will face the punishment for interfering in the fight.
We have already seen that Jin and his friends are no ordinary martial artists. They are stronger than most. Their true potential is yet to be seen. Whatever Punishment is given by the tournament organizers is not going to take away Jin’s win. He may get a bad disadvantage in the next round. That’s all I think. We are yet to see the result of the other rounds and what type of martial artists are participating! What are your thoughts about this new anime? Do you like it? Do let me know in the comments.
