God Eater series follows a video game series of the same name. The last time we saw the game was in 2017 where it was released for PlayStation 4. The video game’s publisher is Bandai Namco. Now, the plot of the show is really intriguing. Set in an animation manner, the series takes us to a post-apocalyptic future. The future where humans have to fight strange beasts. These beasts drove humanity towards extinction. The man-eating beasts are termed as “Aragami” who are extremely violent. Now, the only weapons that can destroy these beasts are God Arcs. These weapons come from an organization called Fenrir. This organization built these weapons to stop the Aragami from killing humans. So, is God Eater Season 2 coming out?
More About God Eater Season 2:
God Eater Season 2 will follow God Eater Season 1. The first season came out on the celebration of the fifth anniversary of the game. The people who wield the God Arcs are God Eaters. Now, the gameplay of the game features upgradable God Arc weapons that the player has to use to kill the beasts. In 2010, the first game in the franchise came on PlayStation Portable. Next, in the years 2013 and 2018, God Eater 2 and 3 came out. The anime follows the story of the game, more or less.
The game was enjoyed by many fans and so was the anime. The celebration of the fifth anniversary gave birth to this anime. The anime received positive reviews. The anime had its beautiful, unique art style but, was criticized for poor production issues. These production issues were the cause of the delay in the release of the late release of the final episodes.
Now, as for God Eater Season 2, there are plenty of cliffhangers that the first season left us with. No official statement regarding God Eater Season 2 has come out. The animation studio Ufotablem is quiet. Therefore, we will have to wait for the new season. Consequently, there are reports which could be true saying that the new season will feature Lenka Utsugi as the lead. Since Lindlow lost his arm in his fight with an Aragami, he is no more the lead.
Conversely, it could be that the new season comes out with the franchise’s 10th anniversary in the year 2020. This might also be true but, this is all just speculation. We can also expect the return of Lindow and Shio. So, all we can do is wait for an official statement.
