While video game-based anime God Eater didn’t make our list for the five must-watch anime this season, I wouldn’t hesitate to say that it is one beautiful-looking anime. I mean, just check out these gifs.
God Eater, based on the Bandai Namco video game of the same name, is being made by Ufotable, the studio behind the equally visually stunning Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works. Living up to a show known by fans as “Unlimited Budget Works” due to its quality can’t be easy, which is the reason why this anime has been plagued by delays—missing even its own premier date. That said, the final result speaks for itself.
