A dystopian future where giant monsters rule the Earth and mankind is protected by impossibly giant weapon-wielding soldiers? Hot damn I’m in.

As previously announced, based on the video game series of the same name, the God Eater anime is set to air this Summer. Check out the latest trailer below with English subtitles.

Yeah, it may have started out as a Monster Hunter clone, but it’s my favorite game series of the genre.

Plus, the animation is being done by ufotable, which – if their work on the Fate/Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works and Fate Zero series is any indication – means the action is probably going to be pretty damn spectacular.

God Eater is set to air in Japan beginning July 5th.
