Not quite sure about the video game art style yet. Some of the faces look pretty bad. Meh, I got used to Sidonia, I'll get used to this. Story seems fairly generic thus far. Action was good though. And the insert songs weren't too bad.

Also: Was that Chiaki Omigawa as the girl who gave him the weapon?

It looks promissing though. Hopefully it doesn't go the good old Ufotable tradition of starting off good and then turning into an utter disappointment.

It also kind of reminded me of Guilty Crown for some reason. Hey, another complete disappointment, how fitting.

Hmm, well, I enjoyed what I saw, so I am interested!



I know this is adapted from a game, so it might be hard to handle the adaptation due to games being so hard to adapt into an Anime.

Since it's Ufotable i thought it would be better.

Pretty generic and uninteresting so far, but i'll keep up for the animation.

Episode 1



Well this was quite something....
The artwork is obviously from ufotable. Soundtrack is nice too in the second half. I feel like coming into this show fresh (without any knowledge of the game) that too much happened in the first episode.

It did establish the main premise and introduced the main characters but the story feels messy so far. Action is nice though.

E1


I haven't played the game but it was nice to finally "meet" them in anime form - I recognize Licca and Alisa from internet fan art sites, and their famous huge weapons.

The game art could take some getting used to, but the action was decent. I hope the story picks up, as it seems to be rather generic, and the MC feels a little flat.
I did notice that Major Amamiya shares the same family name as Lindow, and that she has duct tape around her bracelet.

We'll see how it goes.

So far the show seems awesome, but i couldn't help but laugh at about 17:25 to 17:35. My comments at at 17:25 was "Oh hey, your not dead." followed by "Nevermind".

Zapp what are you doing in God Eater? Get back to Kekkai Sensen right now! The delay has gone on long enough!

Soma and Zapp even have the same voice actor, lol.


I thought literally the same thing. He really needs to get back to his proper anime so we can see that last episode.

lol when they find a timeslot for the last episode.

Anyway ... I have not played the video game either

The character design and art is different and the feel is like a game to me.

So far its interesting .

Episode 1: Lenka Utsugi

This gives me Attack on Titan feels for a reason cause they are behind a wall and such protecting them from such beasts that lie beyond the wall. And then there is a special force just to exterminate them, so yeah kind of the same premise with badass weapons.

I understand its based off a game so the story seems generic but I really enjoyed the action and OST was pretty nice when they were battling. That ED was pretty nice.

The animation is unique I'll give it that, definitely ufotable type of stuff. From the studio that brought you Unlimited Budget Works, we present to you Budget Eater.

Honestly I am just here for some great battle scenes and could care less about the story, unless something shocking happens. However I am not disappointed with what has been present to me thus far. Looking forward to more.

ep 1

Diggin' the artstyle. The choreography is interesting and the characters are as well. Not that fond of Lenka though. He reminds me of Eren from SnK. Actually, this itself reminds me of SnK, which isn't that bad of course (as long as it doesn't become as lame as SnK that is). Anyway, I like how this is an adaptation of a video game. Most, if not all, video games become hard to adapt and become a trainwreck, so I'm looking forward to see how ufotable executes this one.

Just because ufotable is behind this, don't expect Fate 2.0

For some reason this reminds of AOT mixed with RWBY. Probably because the animation looks very cg-ish. This anime actually looks pretty promising. I'm probably gonna stick with it.

It feels to me like they did the whole thing Cell Shaded (like RWBY does) and then did a second pass where they painted over the characters manually.

Well we finally got that god eater episode.

Soo. It was interesting. Visually it certainly stands out. Sort of a cell-shaded look.

Regarding the storytelling. Well i got the impression that the first half was essentially a sped up period covering him entering that .. err. academy's halls and until he got into action. Seeing more and more wounded head back and head out, and fewer and fewer living return at all until the breaking point hits and he feels the call to action.

I think it could have been executed better to make it clearer time was passing but also the whole worsening situation part as well. that could have been telegraphed better to the viewer i think.

Then we got to the actual action bits. Looked alright. The laws of physics as pr usual never applies to these types of monsters so the soldiers end up getting massacred. Our hero fails as he tries to save. Then the Elite unit arrives being all kickass and wins the day except for one monster which our hero transforms his weapon into dealing with.,. newtype. Whom i guess can transform their weaponry.

There was also a bit about how those leading the fortress city were also the ones to cause the accident, their oracle cell leading up to it. Youthful enthusiasm and all that.

We've also got the very busty major who is not afraid to show it (but not rank) with a busted bracelet (with it's own story i am sure) Who does her best to train our thickheaded MC.. Though i wonder why she is in charge of the defence of the entire bloody place. You'd think there'd be a higher rank for that.

But then Military hieracy never seems to be animes forte

So far it seems interesting conceptually. But execution wise it's not quite capturing me yet. We'll see if it improves though.

Also it does have a rather heavy Shingeki no Kyojin feel to it what with the circular walled city with several rings to it.

Make that Fate 3.0 since Ufotable already did two Fate series.
