The God Of High School Episode 2 ##VERIFIED##
The only complaint in my last review was the odd stylistic choice to make the nose and ears of each character look flushed. While this is still awkward to say the least, it is growing on me and the beautiful fight animation more than makes up for it. Fast movement in anime is often done in away that you lose visual of the actual character fighting, but in God of High School episode 2, regardless of speed, making sure viewers can see the martial arts being performed is kept at the forefront.
The God of High School Episode 2
Having made it through the surprise battle royale of Seol's first God of High School preliminary round, The God of High School's Mori, Mira and Daewi move on to the head-to-head battles in the anime's second episode, "renewal/soul." Though Mira and Daewi breeze through their match-ups in Group A, Mori doesn't even make to his before endangering his place in the tournament. Thankfully, his bold actions also curry favor with the audience -- which could prove crucial for what's coming next.
The premiere introduced us to a late-arrival, Kang Manseok, who turned up for the battle royale flanked by the tournaments' suited invigilators and with a handicap to restrict his power. It's Manseok's violent actions in this second episode that cause major trouble for Mori.
While we don't get to see exactly how his tussle with our central trio ended in the first episode, we do learn -- through a flashback -- that Mori took a beating from Mira during it for touching her sword. As the three of them walk home, Mori's curiosity about the weapon gets the better of him once more and he steals it from her to get a closer look. Through his clumsiness and her dishing out punishment to him once more, the sword ends up falling into a river. Though Mira, through gritted-teeth, orders Mori to leave her alone while she searches for the weapon, a shame-faced Mori goes against her wishes yet again. Mira explains the sword belonged to her late father. It's her responsibility to keep her family's unique combat style alive and, by entering the tournament, she hopes to revive their ancestral dojo.
To emphasize the severity of Mori's infraction on the tournament's rules, the event's boss, the enigmatic Park Mujin, arrives to personally take the high schooler away. The powerful politician promises the crowd that proceedings will continue while Mori's fate is determined.
The exploration of the different martial arts styles is another interesting note of this episode. However, most of the second round played in a montage fashion speeding through much of the matches. While this allowed a lot of styles in the episode it would have been interesting to see these matches stretched out a bit. It is important to take note of the controversy of the style of Tae Kwon Do being used in the last match. As the series progresses the difference in Tae Kwon Do styles will become a key point in the series.
What do you think of the second episode of The God of High School? Is the series still living up to the hype? Are you able to overlook the boring characters and apparent lack of plot as long as there are good fights? Do you think charyeok is necessary? Let me know in the comments.
The series got a lot of praise when it first aired because of a stunning fight they offered in the first episode. The battle animation was also praised and made the anime a runner-up in the Best Animation category in the 5th Crunchyroll Anime Awards.
In the 5th Crunchyroll Anime Awards, they were nominated for the best animation, best fight scene, and best score. With the highly coveted award they received that year, the anime may be greenlit for season 2.
The God of High School episode 1 ended with Mori and Gang dashing towards each other in mid-air, ready for a kick. Now, if you have seen the first episode clearly there is a part that the anime cuts off.
Remember the biker-thief who lost to the trio of Mori, Mira and Daewi at the beginning of episode 1? His brother and gang attack the trio next and get beaten up by them in mere seconds.
Mori is now at high school trying his best to fulfill his dream and the promise that he made with his grandfather. Mori is rushing to school using his bicycle to avoid being late on his way he met with an old lady carrying a cat in her shoulder. She yells at him that he must get off from the bike and apologize since he nearly makes an accident.
Typical Mori uses a short cut and jumps from a high distance to reach the all styles martial arts tournament for students all over the country. The tournament is being held at the God of HighSchool and city preliminaries will be held at KORGA Arena. The students are discussing about the tournaments and they want to see it live.
The God Of High School Episode 2 Release Date, Plot, and Spoilers: The God Of High School episode 1 came out last Monday. Everyone thought the anime was going to be good, but this good? Nobody expected that. Great animation, Good opening, and everyone knows the story is going to be gripping nonetheless. I think we have found a way to get a manhwa anime, Just put God in the title and it will have an anime adaptation sooner or later.
The first episode was one of the best pilots we have gotten in a while. Mori the main protagonist Mori is really worried and late. After all, he is going to be late for his first day of school. Driving really fast to be on time and was so close to colliding into an old lady. Old lady shouts at him and told him to catch the thief that stole her purse.
The Tournament has started and all fighters with our three main protagonists have been introduced. The hostile schemes of organization to organize the tournament have also been revealed(Not completely). The first episode ends when Mori gets into the ring to fight a very skilled fighter who was late.
We get a great look at that in the second episode of All or Nothing: A Season with the Arizona Cardinals. Fans remember the Cardinals' regular season as a great success -- which makes sense because it was. Arizona went 13-3, won the NFC West and secured a first-round bye. But six weeks into the 2015 season, it was unclear just who the Cardinals were after puzzling losses over a three-week stretch -- first to the Rams at home, then against a Steelers team playing their third-string quarterback.
This was Peterson's episode in many respects. We learn more about the health struggles, see him embarrass backup quarterback Drew Stanton in the "Chuck It To The Bucket" game, then watch him shut down Calvin Johnson in a blowout win at Ford Field. Peterson's combination of size, speed and agility is stunning on tape.
Dwight Freeney shows up before the Steelers game. The old veteran was signed to help Arizona get to the quarterback. Remarked general manager Steve Keim during one practice: "From the couch to first-team rush. 54." Freeney seems like a super affable dude. During one practice, offensive tackle D.J. Humphries approaches Freeney and tells the former Colts star that he did a "project on him in middle school." Translation: You're crazy old, man.
The Fall came back with its 3rd and final season, airing in the UK on BBC, it will be soon available on Netflix. For those watching on the streaming platform, hope to see you back here when you watched the episodes. (Unless you don't mind spoilers)The Fall is one of those shows that you might have spend more time waiting for new episodes than watching it. It's one of those great series that follow the tendency of shorter seasons, but completely flawless and spectacular cinematography. Since the first episode the music and color palette took over the mood and joined the dark theme of this show. A stoic Super Intendent Detective trying to catch a serial killer. But unlike any other TV show, we get more glimpses in the routine and family life of the killer than the hero. After almost two years off air, let's recap what happened in the final moments of season 2. Paul Spector (Jamie Dornan) led SDI Stella Gibson (Gillian Anderson) into the forest where supposedly, Rose Stagg, his latest victim, was. Luckily they found her in time, barely alive, but one of Paul's patients showed up, shooting Spector and policeman Tom Anderson (Colin Morgan).Season 3 starts to uncover more to what makes Stella be the way she is, or at least makes the viewer wonder, while Paul Spector's life hangs from a thread.Episode 1 is particularly slow describing the aftermath of Season 2 Finale. Slow doesn't mean boring, the episode is detailed into what the doctors feel about saving the life of an alleged sociopath, while Stella has to deal with her job being questioned, and the actions her bosses are choosing to make.It starts with a metaphor that has continuity through the episode, while Spector lays unconscious. Paul is driving a car and it crashes with something we don't see, making him ponder to walk towards the light, where a feminine voice calls him by his real name, or back to the darkness, were he hears Olivia calling him daddy. He can't die, or it would become an incredible frustrating outcome, so of course, the doctors save him. Meanwhile Stella has to deal with Rose's husband, and there's another moment where we get a glimpse into her mind, or where she's coming from. First her softness with Tom Anderson, when he questions why she run to Paul and not him; instead of being baffled she explains she wants justice, if he died, none of the families would have get the closure they deserve or the victims, justice. When she speaks with Tom Stagg, and tells him he has two choices, be there for Rose, and wait for her, or questioned why she complied to Paul's kidnap without putting up a fight. The way she says it, and her posture, can be read as something that is hunting Stella. Maybe a case, or something about her past. Jim fills in for her to give the declaration to the press, and after checking up on Rose she wonders into the room Paul is, to be kicked out by the nurse. (Who is totally Paul's type making it great for suspense effect)The build up in this episode ties in perfectly to Episode 2. Stella and Jim Burns questioned and investigation about their work, leading to the shooting in the forest, continues. Setting this problem as another conflict in the season. If their work is proved to me be negligent, could it mean that Paul can walk free? In the present time it shows that Stella's team is loyal to her. But other problem arise. First Rose realizes she's sharing the ICU with Spector so she asks to be discharged, and then there's some sort of complication of Paul's surgery, and when he finally wakes up for good, he suffers from memory loss, believing he was really in a car accident. In the meantime, Katie, his partner in crime, also number one fan, runs away from school and wanders around the halls of the hospital trying to see him. The first episodes of season 3 continue with the show trend of a cold color palette reflecting the suspense and type of characters that bring the action forward in this story. Gillian Anderson's performance is beautiful to watch, having a talent to work with subtext and little details that give insight into Stella's life, while managing to work that cool and stoic exterior that sometimes crumble when she speaks and voices out some type of criticism to the patriarchy. I sincerely hope this season brings closure to the case, and whatever demons had been hunting her, too. It causes a bit of nostalgia writing a review about a show as great as this one, knowing it's kind of farewell. Hope you're enjoying the show as much as I am enjoying it and talking about it.
