On Monday, Crunchyroll began streaming a behind-the-scenes video to promote the “Behind the Scenes of ‘The God of High School,’ Making of an Anime.” This is a documentary about the television anime of Yongje Park’s The God of High School manhwa. As per reports, Crunchyroll will begin streaming the full documentary on July 20 at 11:00 a.m. EDT.
The amusing part is, in the video, Yongje Park mentions that Barrack Obama was the president when he was drawing the original manhwa. But, the presidential character in the anime was inspired by Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark from Iron Man.
