God Eater is widely considered to be one of the best video game adaptations ever made. There are 12 episodes totaling 72 minutes, and they were directed by Tajayuki Hirao and produced by Hikaru Kondo. Ufotable Studio, who also brought us Kimetsu no Yaiba, did the animation for the show. Unlike most anime, God Eaters is based on a video game created by Bandai Namco and released on February 4, 2010 (with subsequent sequels known as God Eaters Burst and God Eaters Resurrection), so the animation style is quite unique.
The action-adventure anime stands out from the crowd thanks to its superior characterization, plotting, and animation. MVM Films bought the rights to it in December 2017 for a 2018 release. Find out when you can expect to watch God Eater Season 2 below.
God Eater Season 2 Renewal Status
The sequel’s release date and formal synopsis have not been announced. There were whispers that ‘God Eater season 2 would premiere in late 2019. But obviously, that didn’t occur. As of this revision, we still have no information on season 2. The first season of ‘God Eater’ premiered on July 12, 2015, and given the brand’s tremendous popularity among gamers, we can’t help but remain optimistic about the debut of season two.
God Eater Season 2 Release Date
Reports of rapid progress after the conclusion of God Eater Season 1 and preparation for a 2017 release date were unfounded. Newer reports point to late 2023 as a potential release date, but without confirmation of season 2, fans should treat all news with caution.
God Eater Storyline
The anime takes place in a dystopian Japan of 2071, where survivors eat creatures known as “Aragami” who prowl the streets and are nearly immune to conventional weapons. Their knowledge and ability to assume any appearance come from the Aragami core, which also regulates their behavior. Only “Fenrir,” with its unbeatable God Arcs, can wipe out these monstrosities once and for all.
The tale centers on the fight for survival between God Eaters and Aragamis, who are people who have learned to harness the power of God’s Arcs to kill these monsters.

God Eater Season 2 Plotline
After Lindow loses an arm fighting the Aragami, Lenka Utsugi is expected to take center stage in God Eater Season 2. However, Lindow and Shio will most likely return, and a new hero may be introduced. However, without confirmation of a second season, this might all be fans’ wild guesses. The God Eater video game series is still going strong, so perhaps the tenth anniversary of the franchise in 2020 will serve as a better milestone for a prospective God Eater season 2.
Is There Enough Source Material?
The story arc of Season 2 can be anticipated thanks to the accessibility of the source material. Lindow Amamiya’s absence as a protagonist after he loses a hand fighting Aragamis creates a void. Lenka Utsugi, who lost his mother to the Aragamis in season 1, is a potential successor since he is still important despite having less influence.
However, Shio’s potential for the major role should not be disregarded. By the second season, Aragamis would have developed resilience to any conventional weaponry used to kill them, forcing Fenrir to find new ways to create and update the God Arcs. Due to the increased difficulty of staying alive, a lot of work and possibly some new character upgrades would have been required.
