The God Eater anime series was based on the video game franchise published by Bandai Namco. Then it became popular among millennial gamers, like wildfire. The anime hit the television roughly 5 years after the first RPG game release.
The game’s popualrity set a good ground fot the anime. It paid rich dividends too. But, today it has been almost six years since the first series got released. The long wait after the release of the first series has put the fans in dilemma. On the other hand, the video game sequels have been reaching the players promtly.
God Eater 2 was launched in 2013 and God Eater 3 , in 2018. Therefore, the demand for the 4th sequel of the game and the second series of the anime is still kicking in. The movie is roughly on the same lines- a post apocalyptic world in 2071. Fenrir continues to defend humanity from the deadly Aragami.
Both the Game and TV series take place in a post-apocalyptic future where man-eating creatures known as the Aragami have driven humanity to the point of extinction. The gameplay of the series is somewhat similar to Capcom’s Monster Hunter franchise with players taking on large beasts using their upgradable God Arc Weapons.

PART 4: SALES PROFIT INFORMATION FOR GOD EATER SEASON 2
Sales & Profit of the anime are a decisive factor in the sequels. It’s a general trend that the anime sequels make lesser than original works. But the trend is known and understood. So, must sequels are made to promote source materials.
A veteran in the anime industry- Masamune Sakaki says that it takes $3 million to make a 13 episode anime. Producers would not be interested in investing much for the sequel. They would do it only if they are assured of a return. Since there was no manga or light novel source material, we can’t analyze that, So let’s see how each aspect of God Eater did.
CD/DVD SALES: This includes 3 categories – Game, Anime and Combo. The combo DVD sales stood at around 5345 copies. It include the off-shot bundle too. These bundle versions did the most sales. Therefore it can be estimated to be 2000 copies for God Eater anime.
Here’s a Table to show how the anime did –
|God Eater||6,10,000 copies|
|Gods Eater Burst||2,63,000 copies|
|God Eater Resurrection||1,67,857 copies|
Out of the 610,000 copies of God Eater 2,90,000+ copies got sold in just the first week. The net sales can be estimated to be close to $10 million. This is not bad for the brand creators because they would not have lost money and made a decent amount over the years.
MERCHANDISE SALES: Some of the items that were manafactured were mobile phone cases, mobile charms, mobile straps, and garage kits. These prducts did not do as well as the anime or game. It’s impossible to know how much they grossed. But, what’s known is that they did not get much revenue and had to halt it.
Another reason was that the game was noo realistic. This also hampers the sale of it unless it has a cult following.
There’s not much information avaiable for Production cost and about the exact budget, But, we can make an assumption from other anime series. God Eater had 13 episodes just like My Hero Academia. In 2016, it took $1,482,560 for the producers to make My Hero Academia. This is just a base mark. God Eater was much grand and ambitious than this anime. So ot would have taken more than $2 million for it.

GOD EATER SEASON 2: EXPECTED PLOT
The expected plot is going to be on the some lines as the game. There’s no chance that the creators of the next season will deviate from the set path. This can be confirmed because the game sequels became popular.
God Eater Season 1 ended when it was 2071. The tragic part of it was the loss of Lindow’s hand in a battle. He was a God Eater who battled the dreaded Aragami. Therefore, the chances of a new lead are high, in this season. Two people who have those chances Lenka Utsugi or Shia. Among these Lenka is preferred more as fans expect that.
Fenrir will be stronger and thety would create much better weapons. The current God Arcs had started becoming obsolete in Season 1.
GOD EATER SEASON 2 HASN’T BEEN CONFIRMED
Now, fans of the anime will have to take it on faith that another season is actually happening. God Eater season 2 hasn’t been officially announced by Animation studio Ufotable, who also worked on the anime sequences God Eater 3. The elaborate animation style of season 1 was balmed for costly production delays, which caused some viewers to lose interest during its initial airing.
GOD EATER SEASON 2: STORY DETAILS
God Eater season 2 will reportedly feature Lenka Utsugi as the new lead character, following Lindow losing his arm during a battle with the Aragami, That said Lindow and Shio are also expected to return and another hero character might be introduced. These monsters aren’t easy to kill as they cannot be defeated with conventional weapons either. Therefore, an organization called Fenrir has created weapons called God Arcs that can defeat these monsters.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN SEASON 2 OF GOD EATER?
In this version of the world, humanity is on the brink of extinction due to emergence of man-eating monsters called Aragami. These creatures are immune to damage from all conventional weapons.

They develop special weapons from bimolecular material called – God Arcs.
WHY GOD EATER SEASON 2?
Let’s first focus on Season 1, before knowing more about this – Season 1 started the story when it was 2065 and covered events till 2071. In that post-apocalyptic world, the war between Aragami and God Eater was the main theme. It began with the escape of Aragami. They got condemned to death by a nuclear facility. The unfortunates escape caused the subsequent events. The next anime episodes show how the God Eaters fight them. They were initially unprepared for a large-scale war. But they form an alliance and create a force named Fenrir. This leads them to create specialized bioweapons called God Arcs.
Fenrir wages a war to contain the plague of Aragami its members are called God Eaters. Lindow leads them in the first season. But he loses an arm in combat with the enemies. This makes him somewhat like a recluse.
Also, the other factor is that there’s source material to make the next series. Since the 4th version of the game is going to come in some time, it gives hope.
GOD EATER: CONTROVERSY
The game was famous among Generation Z as well. This is the reason why it escaped heavy scrutiny. However, there were some outrages and protests for the graphical scenes of violence. This was isolated and did not affect the scope of this.
