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.
So why don’t we get a move on with this review shall we? Well, I was recommended God Eater by a close friend of mine, and I am not exactly sure whether to thank him or just drop kick him for a bad recommendation. I’m right in the middle of the road on this one y’all. First off, I really do like the art style that God Eater uses. It seems almost CGI, but still has some traditional elements. As for the characters, I only actually cared about Lindow and Kota’s struggle with his family. I am infatuated with the technology and use of the Oracle cell though.
- A few likable characters.
- Oracle cell(?) technology.
- Art style.
- Copy and paste anime.
- Bland opening.
- Uninteresting story.
SCORE: 6.0 / 10
