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.
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.
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.
