God Eater Season 2 is a highly anticipated sequel, fueled by the success and popularity of its first season in 2015. So, it’s no surprise that fans are still wondering about the renewal of this anime for a second season.
Here is everything we know so far about the possibility of a new season of God Eater and when it could potentially be released.
The anime series “God Eater” is based on a popular and successful action role-playing game of the same name, first released in 2010. The “God Eater” game series is developed by Shift and published by Bandai Namco Entertainment.
“God Eater” is an exceptional sci-fi action anime series beloved by fans worldwide. It centers around the struggle of humanity against the Aragami, monstrous creatures that devour everything in their path. The only hope for survival lies in the God Eaters, special warriors who wield God Arcs, weapons made from the cells of the Aragami.
The anime television series God Eater has only had one season. It was directed by Takayuki Hirao and animated by Ufotable for the first season. The script was written by Takayuki Hirao and Kei Tsunematsu.
There has been no announcement on whether the studio and director will return for a potential new season of God Eater.
The first 13-episode God Eater television anime series premiered in Japan in July 2015 and concluded in March 2016. So, can we expect God Eater Season 2 Episode 1 or some other continuation?
Will There Be A Season 2 Of God Eater?
God Eater season 2 is yet to be officially announced. However, the likelihood of additional episodes appears to be low. There is not enough material in the video game for another season. The first season covered the events of God Eater and God Eater Burst, leaving only God Eater 2 and God Eater 3 for a potential second season, which is not enough.
Adding to that is the anime’s lack of profitability and popularity. The first season received mixed reviews and ratings, with an average score of 6.8 out of 10 on MyAnimeList. The first season of God Eater anime did sell only 5,000 Blu-ray. Many fans have been disappointed by the production issues and delays that plagued the first season.
The video game series is still ongoing, with God Eater 3 being released in 2018. However, since then, the franchise has not seen another game. The Ufotable anime failed to generate the much-wanted exposure and sales for this game franchise. While it’s not impossible, a new season might not happen because of profitability and the fact there is no new game to promote.
How to continue the God Eater story after the first season? You can play the God Eater 2 and God Eater 3 games.
The first season of God Eater anime was using the story from God Eater and God Eater Burst, so season 2 could only adapt God Eater 2 and God Eater 3.
I highly recommend checking out God Eater games. Many fans prefer the games to anime, and it is the only way to get more of the story in 2024.
