Hailed as one of the finest game adaptations, God eater has certainly raised the bars by huge margins. Directed by Tajayuki Hirao and produced by Hikaru Kondo, the show runs for 12 episodes with 24 minutes each. The animators behind the show were Ufotable studio which has delivered to us great anime like Kimetsu no Yaiba. The anime has a peculiar animation style since the source material which unlike many anime is provided not by a manga or a light volume but rather a game developed by Bandai Namco which was first released on February 4, 2010, and later came up with two new seasons as God Eaters Burst and God Eaters Resurrection.
The anime is mostly action and adventure-based which surpasses its peer on account of its character development, plot execution, and unique animation style. In December 2017 it was acquired by MVM films for the release that year. Here are all the details we know about God Eater Season 2 Release Date.
God Eater Season 2 Release Date
It has been six years since the anime made its first appearance. Meanwhile, fans have craved for a new season but no official announcement regarding the renewal of the new season has been made on any official account of any social media platform, which led many to believe that the new season is nothing but a far-fetched dream.
Amidst the ongoing uncertainty, there spread many speculations that the show will schedule to air in 2017, but we have gone way past that date and still, no sign of its recurrence can be seen. Another rumor suggested that it may get renewed in 2019 but again these were just rumors and only acted to perturb the already agitated fans.
Essentially, the anime was made to celebrate the 5 years anniversary of the franchise. While, some extolled its unique animation style others showered on it with scathing, after all, any deviation from conventionality is not fancied by the fans. From the maker’s perspective, it was designed so as to give a mixed experience that of a game and anime. Moreover, it was also criticized for the delayed production of its last final 4 episodes.
Taking into consideration, the content in the game that is sitting idle to be converted into a new storyline, it is highly likely that if Ufotable decides to deliver the next season that it may get released in 2022. Whether or not a particular anime is worth investing in is shaped by the kind of reaction it gets. If we look at the official Twitter handle of God eaters then no sign of undermining of its popularity can be seen, which means it is still a profitable enterprise to invest in.
God Eater Season 2 Story
The anime is set in a post-apocalyptic world of 2071 in Japan where their humans devouring monsters called ‘Aragami’ roam around and are almost impervious to weapons. They can masquerade as any being and owes their intelligence to the Aragami core which also controls their conduct. ‘Fenrir’ is the only organization that can exterminate these monsters through their insurmountable weapons called God Arcs.
An individual who harnesses the power to God’s Arcs to kill these monsters are called god eaters and the story revolves around the struggle of survival between the God Eaters and Aragamis.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Due to the availability of the source material, it can be predicted which path of direction, the story of season two embark upon. After having lost his hand in a battle with Aragamis, Lindow Amamiya leaves behind a vacuum of the protagonist role. Although, he is still influential his powers have become meager than before and hence Lenka Utsugi who had lost his mother to the Aragamis in season 1 may step into the breach.
But chances of Shio being in the lead role cannot be overlooked. Any conventional weapons to kill Aragamis would have become redundant, therefore Fenrir would need to find new ways to develop and update the God Arcs which by the second season, these monsters would have acquired the immunity against. The struggle of survival would have become much larger in magnitude and thereby demanding a lot of effort and new character power-ups for subsistence.
