Fans of the God Eater video game franchise are gearing up for a whole new season of the anime! This series will be based on the latest installment, which should bring some exciting changes to story and characters.
It’s set in Japan during the early 2071s, after an event known as “The Devouring” rendered most of humanity into forms known as Aragami. The first season followed protagonist Lenka Utsugi and his friends as they hunted down these monsters one by one- but this time it’ll be different.

God Eater Story About
The anime follows the story of Lenka Utsugi as he struggles with his identity as an original human (or “original type”) in a world where humans have been replaced by gods who consume other beings in order to survive.
A few years ago, after consuming too many humans during one battle against monsters known as Aragami, all but four gods were killed off- leaving humanity on the brink of extinction. The series offers a unique take on the popular God Eater video game.
God Eater Season 2 Release Date
The first episode of the anime premiered on July 12th, 2015- just one day after the Japanese release of God Eater Burst Remaster. The second season of the God Eater anime has not yet been announced. Some sources claim that the sequel to God Eater will premiere in 2019 and run until the end of the year.
For those of you who are fans of the God Eater anime, I’m sure you’re ecstatic about the continuation of the series. This anime, which takes place in 2071 and depicts Japan’s destruction, has an excellent appeal.
What to expect in God Eater Season 2
God Eater Season 2 will continue the story of Lenka Utsugi and his friends as they complete missions- however, it should be vastly different than what fans are used to.
The first anime followed the games closely, but this time around there should be some exciting plot twists! Among other things, you can expect new characters who may offer an entirely different perspective on events.
Unlike season 1, which was based in city, the new main character will be Lenka Utsugi, along with Lindow who lost his arm in his deadly fight with Aragami.
As for the story, God Eater Season 2 could explore many different subplots. The subplot that’s true to its origins isn’t expected to change much- but if you’ve played the game you know there are tons of other subplots that viewers wouldn’t know about until they’re revealed in-game. Hopefully, these secrets will be interesting enough to keep us watching!
Many of the characters who have appeared in the first season should also appear in Season 2- however, there are some major changes. You can expect Lenka Utsugi to return as the protagonist, alongside Lindow Amamiya and Alisa Illinichina Amiella. Watch out for these characters, along with many new ones- you don’t want to get caught off guard!
