The year is 2071. Humanity has been pushed to the brink of extinction following the emergence of man-eating monsters called "Aragami" that boast an immunity to conventional weaponry. They ravaged the land, consuming almost everything in their path and leaving nothing in their wake. To combat them, an organization named Fenrir was formed as a last-ditch effort to save humanity through the use of "God Eaters"—special humans infused with Oracle cells, allowing them to wield the God Arc, the only known weapon capable of killing an Aragami. One such God Eater is Lenka Utsugi, a New-Type whose God Arc takes the form of both blade and gun.

Now, as one of Fenrir's greatest weapons, Lenka must master his God Arc if he is to fulfill his desire of wiping out the Aragami once and for all. The monsters continue to be born en masse while the remnants of humanity struggle to survive the night. Only God Eaters stand between the Aragami and complete and total annihilation of the human race.

God Eater short review by Ja025:

Refreshing: Main character is special but not overpowered (not a deus ex machina jerker).

Notable: Isn’t one sided when it comes to characters, shows a diverse set of characters with different personalities / goals / wishes. Story about the world revealed as main story develops.

Disappointing: Animation can be weird / cheap / choppy at times - examples: face expressions look unnatural (like that grandpa from Parasyte), somewhere only one frame is used for multiple seconds or 2 frames switch back and forth to illustrate wind on character’s face).

Mixed Feelings
God Eater will be getting a second season in 2022, and after finally watching the first season and not thinking much of it as a whole, I thought it was worth it to write a review and clarify why the hell I would say that but also be planning to watch and expecting a lot from the upcoming second season.

As that would imply, this is a strange one to review - I looked at each of the categories, Story/Art/Sound/Character and had to rate between 8-9 for each of them... but enjoyment only a 4? Overall 6? What the hell is this?

Technically, God Eater has all ...

When i first watched this show I sort of had that odd feeling. Mid way through it felt like a complete rip off of Shingeki No Kyojin/Attack on Titan. No offense tho.
Although the art of the show felt very unique, the story lacked alot, not to mention the ending has to be the worst of any kind. Instead of answering the needed questions it instead opened new boxes. What the hell was this?
Overall 1.5/10. That too cause of the art style. The story sucks.
The way in which it was similar to AOT was the monsters beyond a certain point, humanity living within a certain ...
