Hi guys :)

I am thinking of watching god eater, but the series is new to be, and I don't get what's going on in it.

What the main plot of the anime ?

Why is it called "god eater" ?

And are there any gods in this anime ?

Anime adaptation of Bandai Namco's PSP action game series "God Eater."

Set in a post-apocalyptic Japan in the year 2071. The world has been mostly destroyed by mysterious monsters known as the Aragami. An organization known as Fenrir was made to exterminate Aragami using 'God Arcs', weapons made from Aragami cells. Those who specialize in exterminating Aragami are known as God Eaters. Their God Arcs originally could only keep a single form, however a new type has been discovered that can switch between gun and blade form. Since then, they have been classified new-types and the previous as old-types.


No there are not any gods as I can tell.

As PeripheralVisionary said, except that "Aragami" means "powerful deity," so the monsters are the gods and the "god eaters" are using their own power against them.

It's an interesting anime though off the start it seems like your typical apocalyptic world with giant walls around a city. It quickly branches off into an interesting series, the animation is a little different style-wise than most anime but it's nowhere near detrimental to the storyline. Currently the anime is on delay until Winter 2015, episode 9 is the most recent one

Long story short, it's all about big monsters with "god/mythical creature" names and people using big guns and swords. so symbolical, much meaning.
