10. The God of High School
Another blast from South Korea! The God of High school what looks like a simple high school tournament to find the strongest fighter in South Korea is actually far from it.

Mori Jin, Han Daewi, and Mira Yoo are the main characters who train to be the strongest and best in Seoul and the world but of course, there’s the scumbag Park Mubong who literally doublecrosses Jin & Team for his own crazy plans.
