God Eater is a popular anime adapted from a video game of the same name. Ever since its first season in 2016, fans have been wondering about God Eater season 2.
The anime God Eater (Goddo Ītā) is the adaptation of a Japanese video game. The anime series is adapted by UFOTable and it ran from July 2015 – March 2016 with a total of 13 episodes.
It is about an organization known as Fenrir, which helps humanity against monsters in a post-apocalyptic world. The warriors use a divine weapon called “God Arcs” to defeat the monsters. God Arcs are only wielded by a small group of special soldiers called “God Eaters”.
The first season of the show premiered in 2015 and since then everyone is wondering when we will get more episodes. Here’s everything we know about God Eater season 2.
Will There Be God Eater Season 2?
Unfortunately, there is no official announcement regarding season 2 of God Eater. Season 2 of the show was supposed to be released in 2017, right after season 1, but it got delayed. After the delay, the new season was expected to come out in 2019, but we know that never happened.
Even though the anime has not been renewed officially, the video game has received various sequels and versions to date.
Despite the popularity of the video game, UFOTables, the studio has not made any official announcements regarding season 2. Since video games are very popular around the world, we cannot rule out the possibility of a season 2.
Usually, most animes are produced to promote the source material, which is mostly the original manga or light novel series. In this case, however, there is no source material, as the anime is based on a video game.
Let’s take a closer look at all the major factors that could determine the possibility of season 2 of God Eater.
There is plenty of anime that have not been renewed for another season like Darwin’s Game, Great Pretender, and King’s Game.
God Eater Source Material for Season 2
As discussed above, the source material for any anime is mostly the original manga or light novel. Unlike usual anime, God Eater is not based on such, and it is based on a video game.
The video game has received many sequels and is still very popular among players. It means that the possibility of another season is very high. The good thing about no source material is that if the Studio green lights season 2, the possibilities are endless.
If the reception is the same, we might get season 3 and so on as there’s no cap on source material. You can watch the trailer of the first season here:
Is God Eater Popular?
God Eater is a captivating anime series that has received immense admiration from fans across the world. On MyAnimeList, the anime has an audience score of 7.21 with a popularity rating of #366.
The show seems like a slow burn at the start, but it ends up being a tight grab show from 0-100 real fast. Even though the story is not something we haven’t seen before, the animation and art are spot on. The visuals are absolutely stunning as expected from UFOTable Studio.
Overall, it’s a very interesting show and fans are still waiting for season 2.
What is God Eater Season 2 Release Date?
There is no information regarding the God Eater season 2 release date. According to online rumors, the second season of the show was going to drop in 2017 first but got delayed to 2019. But we can see that never happened.
Chances are that the show got delayed because of the global pandemic towards the end of 2019. It’s been more than 2 years, and there is no news regarding season 2.
However, we cannot give up completely, because the God Eater game is insanely famous.
What Will Be The Story of God Eater Season 2?
If we do get another season of God Eater, we will see Lenka Utsugi as the new leader. Lindow will lose his arm in a battle with Aragami, as we see more of Lindow and Shio.
The good thing is that the show is not canceled because of a lack of source material, so we might yet get another season. At this point the story is open-ended, so we cannot make a proper prediction of what’s to come.
In any case, the earliest we could get the second season of God Eater is late 2023 or 2024.
To recap, six years before God Eater Burst, the new member of Fenrir goes on a mission in Russia with Lindow and Tsubaki. They are tasked with leading a colony of Aragami to a nuclear fusion reactor that will wipe them all.
However, Aragami attacked the reactor and breached its defenses. As the reactor prepares to detonate, Lindow, Soma, and Tsubaki battle the Aragami. Their captain leaves them stranded, and detonates the reactor, but some unknown force absorbs all the power, preventing it from causing a catastrophe.
After the incident, Lenka and Fujiki train under Tsubaki, hoping to kill as many Aragami as possible. During an attack, Lenka confronts the Aragami, despite being told to stay back, and stuns everyone by transforming his God Arc into a weapon.
As a punishment, Fenrir’s superiors decide to strip Lenka of his Gold Arc. Linka asks Lindow to teach him how to fight and later joins Sakuya and Lindow on the battlefield.
