Set in a post-apocalyptic Japan in the year 2071. The world has been mostly destroyed by mysterious monsters known as the Aragami. An organization known as Fenrir was made to exterminate Aragami using 'God Arcs', weapons made from Aragami cells. Those who specialize in exterminating Aragami are known as God Eaters. Their God Arcs originally could only keep a single 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.
I'm very much enjoying the story and it is amazing. I started watching this as soon as it came out because I loved the game and this anime is based on the game which is why I love this even more. The story is very slow at first, as pretty much many other animes, it starts with some backstory and helps the viewer to get accustomed to the setting and characters and I don't really mind but I know some people don't like the story to be slow specially the beginning.
The protagonist is just your typical "I need to save them all" type (which isn't bad by any means) but the protagonists team is what makes this wonder who is she/he, what does his/her weapon do, and of course what's their past like as the setting is post-apocalyptic, it wouldn't surprise us to know that their pasts would be messed up.
The fact that their weapons are called "God-Eaters" makes it unique already. The animation is far beyond what we have seen so far, it's just amazing! just look at it! Also the violence, oh the violence...I've noticed many people being angry or too impatient waiting for SNK Season 2, which is understandable, but if you really need something like SNK (in the violence department) this is a good pick with its unique story and animation.
The intro is pretty good and it gets you pumped up before you watch the anime, it makes the anime that much more enjoyable. The ending song makes you relax after an emotional or action packed episode, and it makes the anime even more enjoyable,but the ending song makes you impatient for the next episode to come out as well.
I am loving this one so far so good, or maybe its because I love the game, once again great for every one specially those looking for something to satisfy your need for SNK Season 2.
Hope you enjoy!~
