Crunchyroll began streaming a behind-the-scenes video on Monday to promote the "Behind the Scenes of 'The God of High School' | Making of an Anime" documentary about the television anime of Yongje Park's The God of High School manhwa. Crunchyroll will begin streaming the full documentary on July 20 at 11:00 a.m. EDT.
In the video, Yongje Park mentions that Barrack Obama was the president when he drew the original manhwa. However, the presidential character in the anime was inspired by Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark from Iron Man.
The Crunchyroll Original anime series The God of High School debuted on Crunchyroll on July 6, and also premiered on television in Japan on the same day. Crunchyroll describes the story:
