This week’s anime is going to be a weekly post that I will start covering what anime I watched that week. For the most part it will be one anime series a week unless I feel the need to post more than one. Seeing as I watch anime everyday I thought it would be a good idea to share what I watched that week and give brief thoughts on it. This week’s anime is God Eater.
In the year 2051 unknown lifeforms called Oracle Cells have started to infest and consume the world. After years of devastation and fear they get renamed Aragami. On the brink of extinction humanity has one last hope God Eaters. God Eaters are organic weapons fused with Oracle Cells. Fast forward to the year 2071 an elite force armed with God Eaters fights for humanity’s survival on what could be their last stand.
God Eater follows Lenka Utsugi and his fellow unit members as they take on the ever growing Aragami threat. The back stories on each member provide insight to the characteristics of each member and how they became who they are today. Also with the several backdrops of each member there are several flashbacks as to how the Aragami threat was created in the first place. This combined with the current story provide a drama and action filled anime that is quite enjoyable. Will the God Eater’s be enough to save humanity or are we doomed for extinction?
