Now, everyone is waiting for its second season. So when will it release? Keep reading to know.
God Eater Season 2: Renewal Status!
The franchise ordered the inaugural season of the anime to celebrate the fifth anniversary of its video game. Ufotable Studio has given the responsibility to animate the show who has done their job exceptionally. The anime received a tremendous response from the viewers, and the critics also praised the series. However, the sixth months’ hiatus that came after its ninth episode really harmed the image of the series. But the fans still desperately want to see God Eater Season 2. However, Ufotable Studios are pretty tight-lipped in slipping out the details regarding the second season of the anime.
Since it is very common for anime shows to take a longer time than the regular shows. Therefore the fans of this series are still waiting for the makers to renew the show officially. Since they haven’t renewed or canceled the series, therefore its future is still up in the air. But the fact that both video game and anime series are immensely popular increase the chances of the renewal of anime.
What To Expect From The Second Season?
The anime closely follows the video game’s storylines, and its plot is also set in the post-apocalyptic nation of the New Asian Union. Humanity is on the edge of extinction because of the monsters called Aragami, who feed on humans. In the nick of time, a group called Fenrir emerges to save humankind. They are also known as God Eater, who can kill these monsters with the help of biochemical weapons.
Now, in God Eater Season 2, the fans will most likely see the arrival of the new protagonist. The lead character of the debut season has lost its arm in a battle against Aragami. And that makes Lenka Utsugi the prime candidate to take the lead in the second season. She was the one who motivated the entire team during the debut season’s finale. The new season will introduce some new characters as well. Moreover, it will arrive with interesting storylines, terrifying creatures, and new characters who will try to save humanity.
God Eater Season 2: Release Date
Both Ufotable Studios and the video game developers are yet to announce the second season of the anime. The studio is really busy with their current project and that means the second season won’t premiere this year. If God Eater Season 2 is on the cards, then the fans will likely see its premiere by the end of 2022.
