Crunchyroll has released a new clip from a forthcoming documentary about the making of the new Originals series “The God of High School” revealing why the show’s makers were inspired by Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. when it came to creating an American president in anime form.
The full documentary that premieres on Monday July 20th at 4 pm, takes viewers behind the scenes at MAPPA studios to meet the team behind The God of High School along with Yongje Park, the creator of the original WEBTOON manga series.
The original comic book series featured Obama as the president as it was drawn 10-years-ago, but now the American leader is inspired by Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man and voiced by the late actor Keiji Fujiwara (who died in April this year) who also voiced Iron Man in Japan.
The God of High School is an action-packed series that follows a secondary school kid and his friends as they compete in an epic tournament, borrowing power directly from the gods and uncovering a mysterious organization along the way.
The full clip can be found on Crunchyroll Extras YouTube channel. The documentary “Behind the Scenes of ‘The God of High School’ | Making of an Anime” will premiere Monday, July 20 at 4pm on Crunchyroll and YouTube.com/Crunchyroll.
