God Eater gets a TV Anime adaptation

Anime adaptation of Bandai Namco’s PSP action game series “God Eater.”

Set in Japan in the year 2071 where the world has been mostly destroyed by mysterious monsters known as the Aragami. An organization known as Fenrir was made to exterminate Aragami using weapons called God Arcs which is made from the cells of an Aragami. Those who specialize in exterminating Aragami are known as God Eaters. Originally God Eaters had one type in which their God Arcs can only keep gun form or blade form, however a new type has been discovered that can switch between gun and blade form. Since then, they have been classified new-types and the previous as old-types

Ok, let’s start with God Eater the game “God Eater Burst”. The gameplay is very similar to the Monster Hunter game. You create your own character and as you go further to the story you get to make many weapons of your choice. I found this game when I was surfing the net on which game to play on my PSP. I found God Eater and really enjoyed it. I like the story, the art, and the gameplay.

There is a sequel to the game which is title “God Eater 2.” I haven’t played it yet, but I really really really want to play it.

Another sequel was made titled “God Eater 2 Rage Burst”, but unfortunately it was made for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4. (Noooooooooooooooooooo, I don’t own a PS Vita nor a PS4.) But I’m looking forward to playing the sequels of the game (If I had a PS Vita or a PS4 LOL).

Ok now let’s go with the anime. When I heard that God Eater was going to have an anime adaptation, I was really hyped because my favorite game when I was a child will be made into an anime. Plus, the animation is being done by ufotable, the producer who worked on the Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works and Fate Zero series. So the action will probably be pretty good and really awesome. The hype is real !

The plot is similar to Attack on Titan. A dystopian future where giant monsters rule the Earth. Humans inside a wall battling for their survival using giant-weapons. So if you liked Attack on Titan, you should try watching God Eater. God Eater (Anime) is set to be aired on July 5,2015. So just a few more weeks of waiting.

  1. The title of this anime caught my attention… but reading through your post…. it really seems interesting…

    I am clearly not an anime aficionado… but I must say the creativity that it takes to conceptualize such story and the visuals attached to it…


    1. Well sir, it was originally a game for psp, basically it’s about the future where humans fight for their survival against the Aragamis (荒神 “violent god”). The only way to truly kill an Aragami is to extract the core, thus making all the normal cells lose their cohesion. The only weapons created by humanity that is capable of doing this (whilst still being portable) are the God Arcs (the long big swords, which are actually weaponized and wieldable Aragami), wielded by the God Eaters (humans which are trained to fight Aragamis), which extract it by “devouring” a specific section of an Aragami’s body, which contains the core. It’s titled God Eater because humans devour the god’s core. It’s either you devour the gods or you will be devoured by the gods. I hope this helps you to understand more of the concept of the game/anime, Sir. 🙂
