An effort to start narrating a new anime every season, I’ve begun the latest in Ufotable’s collection, God Eater. Set in Japan, year 2071, where the world is largely destroyed by monsters known as Aragami, while an organization known as Fenrir have had made large efforts in exterminating Aragami using weapons called God Arcs.
We begin the story with Ushio who learns about his ancient ancestors impaling a demon on a temple altar stone with a legendary Beast Spear. However after his father goes on a holiday, he stumbles upon a monster, Tora, with large wild hair stuck by a spear for the past 500 years. Ushio is forced to release Tora to help him with the creatures in and near his house.
