The first season of God Eater anime was based on a video game of the same name. Will we ever get God Eater season 2? Here’s what we know so far about the second season.
God Eater is a sci-fi fantasy anime based on the video game franchise of the same name, developed and published by Namco Bandai Games. It is considered one of the best animes adapted from a game. The anime is set in a dystopian world where monsters known as the Aragami have brought humanity to the point of destruction. These monsters can’t be destroyed with traditional weapons. Therefore, an organization called Fenrir has created weapons called “God Arcs” that can beat these monsters. God Arcs are handled by a group of soldiers called, “God Eaters”. The anime follows Lenka’s journey after his family gets destroyed by Aragami. He decides to take revenge and become a God Eater.
The basic setup of God Eater anime is almost the same as other fantasy animes. But, the execution, flow and thrilling moments in between make it one of the most exciting game animes of all time. God Eater is sometimes compared to Monster Hunter as the gameplay is slightly similar. The first season of God Eater comprising of 12 episodes premiered on July 12, 2015, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the video game franchise.
The anime was directed by Takayuki Hirao with Studio Ufotable backing the project. The God Eater anime was applauded for its sleek style of animation, heart touching and thrilling moments. However, certain fans criticized the art style and were not pleased as the final four episodes were delayed for a long time.
It’s been more than six years since the first season of God Eater concluded airing. Fans are eagerly waiting for a trustworthy update on the second season. So, what is exactly happening with God Eater Season 2? Will we get the second season of the sci-fi action anime?
