God Of Highschool Episode 12 : The End Of The World As We Know It
God of Highschool went from the story of a fighting tournament to something crazy. God of Highschool Episode 12 dives into an all-out war. Ilipyo unlocking the Key has provoked NOX to move in to take hold of that power. They aren’t the only ones who want it.
To be honest, the power scaling system and the organizations were all confusing to me. This episode clears up some loose ends and transports us into all the action.
The skies turn red and beings plummet from the sky to bring their plan to fruition. NOX summons their trump card, ‘GOD’ himself. A diety like figure descends from the heavens. The whole situation does not look good.
Park Mujin trie to stop the descending doom from approaching earth and destroying it. We get to know that if ‘The Key’ and God come to meet, then it spells doom for the whole world. From almost the second episode of the show, the mystery regarding the Key has been finally solved.
Villians also had good intentions inside them once. The situations they get involved in and their admirations are what make them take a different path. Jeagal Teak abandoned by his mother and sold to a rich old man was raised and instilled with goals so that he can be a ‘ winner’. This episode is about winners and losers. His Adoptive parent tells him that those who abandon people and take the easy way out are considered, losers. Those who envision victory from the beginning and achieve it with full confidence are known as winners. These teachings have made a drastic change in his personality which turns him into such a man. The tides are turning in God of Highschool and we have to wonder, who will gain the upper hand?
Illpyo and Jegeal face off against each other in a vicious battle. Illpyo enraged at the fact that Jegeal has taken everything good in his life and he isn’t going to let him win just yet. The animation is flawless. Fists meeting each other in a fiery embrace, power-ups that are so flashy which makes you want to watch the fight with no interruption.
This anime has made every episode worthwhile. Each episode lives up to the hype and this one is no different. The members of SIX are flying around taking out parademon looking creatures, Park Mujin tries to stop the incoming deity from attack Seoul. Illpyo loses the ‘ Key’ and it is extracted into an actual key. A crazy frenzy of fights begins to get hold of the key and this is just the start of all the debacles.
In a way, it has the elements from the 2014 ‘Justice League War’ and Avengers 1. Oh yeah! I forgot to tell you. The USA launches nuclear missiles to destroy the creature from beyond our realm. This episode was on the same magnitude as some of the scenes from these movies and I find it fun to see that.
All the members of the God Of Highschool tournament are transported to a garden until the issue is solved. Jin Mori keeps the key safe for Illpyo. Han Daewi’s chakreyok nature is revealed and Jegal Taek goes on a rampage again.
For the first time since I’ve been writing, I can’t explain what this episode is. It is a continuous rollercoaster of an action scene and it engages us while putting us on the edge of our seats. The most spectacular performance of power shown in this episode was ‘ The Magician’. Jeon Jaesan performs alchemy to teleport each citizen far away from the attack site. He single-handedly destroys God and disintegrates all the missiles that were launched.
The SIX is not an organization to be underestimated. I even wonder it won’t be easy to defeat Jin Taejin either if their members have powers of this magnitude. He might as well be alive and well. The whole diety is transported to that jungle, the place where the others were sent to. Jegeal Teak goes on a rampage and takes out Han and Mira. He is a powerful villain and does not stop at getting what he wants. His perseverance is unmatched and not even Jin Mori can match this. Jeagel Taek gets ahold of the Key and he transforms into something much unbelievable. He might as well be the ‘ Angel of death’.
This shows lacks a little bit of narrative but makes up for with the well-choreographed fight sequences. Moving from frame to frame the detail given to the fights is tremendous and the animation is flawless. I’m intrigued to see how this series is going to wrap up in the final episode.
Until next time. See ya!
