God Eater Key Visual

Some unfortunate news has been reported for fans of the God Eater TV anime series. It appears that on Sunday God Eater will air its final episode. Multiple Japanese TV stations including Tokyo MX and Yahoo! TV Japan are listing the 9th episode as the final episode for the broadcast. The series was originally to have 13 episodes however 4 of the 13 episodes aired have been Extra recap episodes.  The recap episodes took the place of actual episodes that were previously scheduled to take place in that timeslot. After the 9th episode takes place, the following week on October 4, Comet Lucifer will take over God Eater’s 10:30 pm timeslot.

The God Eater TV anime is an adaptation of the God Eater series of video games by Shift and Namco Bandai Games. The anime adaptation is based on the first game in the series and is produced by Ufotable, the studio that animated the opening for the God Eater game. The 1st Blu-ray will be released simultaneously with God Eater Resurrection (a remake of the 1st God Eater game for PS4 and PS Vita) on October 29.  The anime adaptation first premiered in July. It is unknown whether or not the anime will be continued in another format such as in the Blu-ray releases or via web releases.

Daisuki is currently streaming God Eater as the show airs in Japan and Crunchyroll began airing the show on August 11.

It would be unfortunate if the series ends at 9 episodes, hopefully Ufotable continues the anime in some way, whether it be via online or releasing the remaining episodes with the Blu-ray releases.

    Sounds like really crappy production to me. 13 episode run and nearly 1/3 of them have been recaps to fill the holes for, I’m assuming, unfinished episodes?

    I’m sure they’ll just be on the BDs, sounds like they had production issues, which is unfortunate but happens sometimes.

    So a 13 episode anime ended up being really 5. I get that recap episodes are sometimes desired. Like maybe a recap of a season or arc, but 4 recap episodes before episode 9? Hunter x Hunter had 2 recap episodes, episode 13 and episode 26. And after that there were no more recap episodes. I can kind of see the need for it there because it was streamlining that part of the series. But this is way too excessive.

    A thirteen episode anime is about to show it’s ninth episode. Eight episodes have already shown, and half of them were recap episodes. That sounds to me like they were essentially showing the content twice. If there ends up being all 13 episodes, then at this rate there would be 7 (my more cynical side wouldn’t be surprised if the last half was a recap of the whole season, meaning more than half of the series would be recaps.) At best, there would be 9 episodes. Almost a third of the season devoted to recap, I’d be looking for a different studio if I was planning on a second season.

    To be fair, this isn’t the worst thing that you can do. The Haruhi anime had eight episodes that were essentially the same thing. But at least that one had source material to back it up (the arc was in the book series as well).

    When i first watched god eater i guess i feel in love with it but along the way the story just didn’t felt right, it was too rushed, the episodes started to get delayed and finally found out there are 9 episodes for the time being because of some shity extras that i don’t even watch.I was and stil am really disappointed.I thought there is more to it, something to make my heart skip a beat but that didn’t happen.

    i never really liked this anime just liked the art style but the main seemed kinda shitty which made me not like it
