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.

God Eater

Now this is what I call interesting! I have to admit that I’m having one or two problems with the artwork, but I think I can get passed that.

God EaterThe artwork itself looks good, but the characters look a bit strange. It’s like they went for 2.5D but stopped shortly after they left. It’s like 2.2D quality. I think I can get used to it, but I would’ve preferred if they had gone a different way with it.

The story really interests me. It’s not unique or amazing, but I feel as though the protagonist will be quite the little rebel when it comes to obeying orders. I like that.

I think it’s safe to recommend God Eater. I like what I saw and I will definitely be watching for the time being.

Plot Summary: In the year 2071, the Far East is ruled by angry gods. 20 years ago unknown life forms called “Oracle cells” begin their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth. Humanity both fears them and reveres them as “aragami.” They are immune to all weapons and the mankind’s numbers continue to dwindle. The last bastion of hope is the newly developed “God Arcs” weapons that utilize Oracle cells to fight back. The weapons wielders band together into an elite force dubbed “God Eaters.”
