Broadcast Premiere of 'God Eater' Delayed by One Week

God Eater, originally scheduled to premiere on July 5, will be postponed by one week, according to an announcement on the official website. A special program titled God Eater Extra will air in the time slot instead of the first episode. The announcement reasoned that the project staff wanted to deliver a work quality that meets fan expectations.

An early screening of the first episode, originally scheduled for June 28 at Akihabara UDX, had been canceled last week. That episode is also scheduled for screening on the third day of Anime Expo 2015 in Los Angeles this weekend, but that is unlikely to occur.

God Eater is based on an action role-playing game of the same name released in 2010 on PlayStation Portable. Its adaptation is being animated by ufotable.

I can wait, but I'll lower my expectations.
I'm loving all the Shirobako related replies in this thread though!

lol at the amount of negative replies in this thread. I dunno about Ufo's previous works, but for now I guess I'll just wait for it to air.

This is pretty disheartening, but it's nothing worth waiting another week for. Still can't wait for it's premiere!

who cares?

lets see what ufotable will bring onto the table and if this show has only ,,okay´´animation than.... its 100% sure that it will still look better than 90%of all anime out there. ufotable has very high standards in therms of animation


And who was this guy complaining about aweful CGI? i couldnt see aweful CGI but okay... also...always this CGI haters... Without CGI an anime can never look as awesome as UBW. And pls dont bring up movies from GHIBLI or other movies now. Movies have a LOT more budget than anime series

Hopefully this serves as a wake-up call for the Ufotable fanboys. Without that sweet Type Moon funding they're fucking nothing.


If you think Bandai Namco Entertainment has less funding then Type/Moon then you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. One was founded in 2000 and is just barely emerging from it's trappings as a doujin company that is largely just popular with Otaku. The other has been around since the 50's and is a multi-billion dollar publisher and developer with offices all over the first world and an actual stock exchange listing that has worked on franchises like the new Smash Bros and various other worldwide popular franchises like Pac-Man, Tekken, Dragon Ball Z, Tales of, and Dark Souls too name just a few and may in fact be the largest 3rd party game developer in Japan as of this time. No realistic or fair standard of comparison there at all.

It's not a matter of funding, it's a matter of scheduling.


I may not always agree with your opinions but it's tough to disagree with facts. Maybe Hongu didn't know Bamco is behind God Eater...

Anyways, I hope ufotable pulls it together. If they manage to pull off a quality series after all of this, that would be pretty impressive imo.

don't juge something that has not even been release yet their is probably a good reason why their doing this
