God Eater episode 09

This is really messed up. I mean, we had like three nonsense episodes with nothing but recaps and whatnot. That was pretty bad enough, but now it seems we’re going to have to wait a few months before we get to see the final few episodes because they messed up the production.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.06_[2015.09.29_23.47.34]I’ll admit; anime that has been adapted from games tend to be big gambles. Most of them turn out bad and not very profitable, but I can’t remember the last time when a company screwed up this badly. A lot of bad news items have been circulating lately and I think it’s time we face facts; they screwed up a lot. Apparently it’s gotten to the point where they disappoint all the fans by making them wait a few months so that they can come back from their many screw-ups. They finally did it right for a change and then they still find a way to mess it up… Incredible.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.33_[2015.09.29_23.48.11]I’m going to have to say that I’m kind of disappointed by the thought that Lenka is really dying. I don’t know if he’s going to die a hero’s death or if they somehow find a way to save his life. Either way; things are going to get hectic. I just have to give him two thumbs up for wanting to carry on instead of just wasting away slower than usual.

They really did a good job on this though. I mean, the story’s good. I never even saw that twist coming. I never knew they were going to use that Russian chick to try and kill her captain. At least we know who’s really pulling the strings. It just goes to show you that companies and organizations just cannot be trusted. They’re probably building a weapon instead of a shield. We’ll find out eventually.

God Eater episode 08

I suppose this was a good episode. Rather, I feel that this may have been a real eye-opener and I hope it continues. I would always choose a rebellious character over a character that always follows order like a good puppy.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.47_[2015.09.22_22.58.53]I’m talking about Lenka of course. I mean, the guy hauled ass on his last mission and saved that Russian girl, a fellow new-type, so I would’ve thought that they would show him some more respect after all that. Not many could’ve returned alive after all that, even if he did have his captain by his side for half of the journey. What bothers me is that his commanding officer, that busty major, still refuses to acknowledge him. I mean, he just saved two teams from getting killed during a search and destroy mission and I still don’t think that she acknowledges him. She’s just way too stubborn.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.47_[2015.09.22_22.59.07]Not that we don’t have bigger things to worry about. At least Lenka does. He doesn’t have time to worry about not getting the amount of respect that he deserves because he just learned that he could very well be dying soon because he’s too compatible to wield his God Arc. I never knew that someone could be too compatible for something. I certainly never knew that being too compatible, which could also be seen as being too good, could kill you (other than making other people jealous and them killing you out of jealousy). I’m pretty sure we’ll get to know more about that during the next episode. There’s probably a way for him to survive, seeing as he’s the show’s top character. Those tend to stick around.

God Eater episode 07

I am going to keep this week’s God Eater post short since I have to write yet another post about a rather disappointing show. That’s why I have to keep this one short and simple since I just don’t have the time to do anything else.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.15_[2015.09.08_23.55.58]Alright, so Lenka’s weapon turned out to be less dead than he was told by Alisa. I don’t even understand why he listened to her in the first place. She is completely useless right now. She let fear control her and now she can’t even defend herself much less help others. She, without those pills, is what one might call ‘dead weight’.

I just think that Lenka’s captain could’ve done things differently. I think it’s cool that he helped those people with their new way of live, but letting Lenka go back was way too risky. Half of that little city got destroyed in the process and I’m sure it’ll only get worse since more and more Aragami seem to be able to get passed those threes. I’m sceptical about the whole thing.

God Eater episode 06

I suppose this episode was okay? I’m just wondering what the hell is going to happen now. The problem with anime that are based on games is that the stories tend to be rather disappointing, especially when nearing the end.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_05.36_[2015.09.01_22.59.11]I have to wait two weeks for this episode and I honestly expected more. A lot more. Most of this episode was about those two idiots surviving and getting back home by finding Alisa’s God Arc. Even that was rather pointless in the end because she couldn’t even use it when it was time for her to protect Lenka for a change. I don’t know what kind of nerve-giving pills she was taken before she ran out, but she’s less than useless now. The sight of Lenka acting as her meat shield was just sad. I’m almost disappointed that their beloved team captain showed up in time.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_16.15_[2015.09.01_22.59.56]This episode just wasn’t worth the wait. I’ll admit that I liked the atmosphere of them hiding in that hotel for dear life. It had this interesting post-apocalypse feel to it. But that’s not enough for me to be excited about an episode. Watching them run all over the place, mixed with a few flashback scenes from Alisa’s past, which ended up explaining why she went crazy when she saw that strange Aragami, and, of course, a few minutes’ worth of God Eater history at the end of each episode. We know how those things were created by now. We know that humanity, as can only be expected, was responsible. Just focus on what’s to come.

God Eater episode 05

Wowowowow! Things took yet another turn for the worse. We learned a lot of new things and yet more questions arose. Also, I noticed that I have completely gotten used to God Eater’s artwork. In fact, I can now actually appreciate it.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.09_[2015.08.19_00.01.56]So Lenka and his new friends have been sent out on a new mission to retrieve cores. They all got so impatient because of how slow their ‘bunker’ is progressing, so they decided to go hunt bigger game, which ended up becoming their biggest mistake yet. Things seemed fine at first, but then they encountered more humans and things just went south. More and more monsters showed up and eventually the mother of all monsters (even though he looked like an old man) showed up and kicked everyone’s ass. There was no stopping this thing. It was all over the place.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.19_[2015.08.19_00.02.15]What’s interesting is that even that Russian chick, whom, if I may add, immediately recognized that thing, got her ass handed to him. In fact, she didn’t even do any damage. She nearly got herself killed for nothing. What’s worse is that Lenka nearly got himself killed as well trying to save that stupid girl. I can only hope that those other two manage to escape.

Now, Lenka, trying to save that idiot, fell into a river and will most likely survive. They won’t die, obviously. I’m more interested in those strange marks on his arms and face when he got angry. For a second there I thought he was going to get a sudden power boost and kill that thing, but now I’m starting to think that his weapon takes a toll on his body and that those marks are one of the side effects.

God Eater episode 04

This episode was quite interesting. Not only action but also quite a bit of information on how that city works and what their ultimate goal is. I still believe that God Eater of underrated. People don’t want it because of the artwork. Sad…

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.38_[2015.08.11_23.58.01]Anyway, I have no interest in that red-haired kid whatsoever. I believe he’s not a new-type and he doesn’t seem very reliable. So what if he has a hot mom that worries about him? They are only allowed to stay because that boy has what it takes to be a god eater. That’s what shocked me most, I think. People are only allowed to enter and stay inside the city if someone in their family is capable of being a god eater. I can understand that they might do something like that to preserve food and water, but why build a place that could house all of humanity if you are going to deny them entry to your city? It’s weird.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.29_[2015.08.11_23.58.19]Like I said; I don’t like that new kid. I know he’s inexperienced and that Lenka also had a tough time holding his own when he went to save a follow god eater. He just seems too weak. Lenka learned to fight very fast and he’s dedicated. That new kid seemed more interesting in having fun and exploring the city than honing his skills.

As for that Russian new-type? Yeah, she’s a pain in the ass. She think she’s very similar to Lenka but she’s not. Lenka doesn’t just abandon people because he’s accomplished his own mission. He just rushes in to help others instead of selfishly going back on his own. They really need to get through to her as soon as possible before someone dies because of her.

God Eater episode 03

This turned out to be quite the amusing episode. People are still moaning about how this doesn’t live up to some of Ufotable’s other works. Stop crying and enjoy the show. I think it’s a really entertaining show and it’ll probably only get better.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.13_[2015.07.28_23.31.58] - CopyI think this week’s episode was a bit better because there was a subtle combination of information about characters and their weapons and quite a bit of action. We learned, thanks to Alisa, that new-type girl, that their new-type weapons have the ability to devour those monsters and absorb their “energy” in order to turn that into ammo for their long-ranged mode. I think that’s absolutely brilliant. They don’t have to carry around all that ammo. They can just switch their weapons back into sword mode and send it out to devour one of those monsters in order to replenish their ammunition. That should make them a lot more mobile since they won’t have to carry all that stuff.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.47_[2015.07.28_23.32.17] - CopyI’ve seen quite a bit of those new-types this week. I think Lenka’s melee mode looks cooler, but Alisa’s longer-ranged mode, that awesome-looking minigun, looks so much better than Lenka’s canon. That does not change the fact that Lenka, despite it being his second battle ever, performed just as well as Alisa, whom seems to be experienced in battle.

Alisa also strikes me as a little rebel. I hope I’m right. She refused the help from others because she didn’t want to abandon her comrades and she even whooped Lenka’s ass in order to prove her point. I like that. People that follow orders blindly are the ones that die first. So keep on rebelling as much as you think is necessary!

God Eater episode 02

Yeah, God Eater seems promising. A lot of people have been badmouthing it because of the way they’ve done the characters, but I’ve already gotten used to it. It was the same thing with the Knights of Sidonia. Look past it and you’ll find something interesting.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.14_[2015.07.21_23.43.40]But yeah, the artwork is not the reason why I decided to write about God Eater. I simply like overpowered and rebellious characters. I became instantly interested when the protagonist decided to disobey orders in order to help save as many lives as possible. He did not stay behind because he was told to. He wanted to go out and help people and that’s exactly what he did. Who cares if they didn’t like it? I hate organisations and government in general because they’re always selfish and corrupt, which is why I’m hoping that the protagonist will continue to rebel from time to time.

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.23_[2015.07.21_23.43.55]Renka will now be thought by Rindou. I think that’s much better than doing those virtual reality exorcizes over and over. I don’t know a lot about Renka, but he strikes me as the type of character that learns more from actual combat than to practice in some facility. I just hope I’m right, seeing as some of those “higher-ups” are playing to take away his God Arc.

I don’t know what to expect at this point. I’m sure that Renka will do fine under Rindou’s command. I’m more worried about Renka losing sight of his own ideals. I don’t want him to become one of those characters that follows orders to the very letter because he’s afraid of what might happen afterwards. He’s fine as he is now.
