God Eater 4 largely focuses on the Aegis Project in an effort to protect and feed the whole human population. Human’s last chance against the Aragami is to build the Aegis using the core which is available within Aragami. They go on a mission in order to gain these core’s when they realise that random people from the outside world are not allowed to enter.
Compared to other previous God Eater episodes, I think this one was a little off. By this I mean that it didn’t quite have the impact as much as the previous episodes had. Along with developing the story further and giving Lenka and others an end goal and why they need to do what they do.
On top of this, we’re introduced to a third character who will be in Lenka and Alisa’s group, Kota Fujiki. We learn a little about him when his family finds out that his job is not in fact a job but in fact is a God Eater, they’re not quite happy with that. Which also makes me think that out of the other two, Lenka and Alisa, he might be the one who will die soon.
After the previous episode, when the Oracle cells went crazy and nearly destroyed their office, we see in this episode that the scientist working on this project are so dedicated towards this project that they lie on the project report allowing them to keep on working, which honestly is quite crazy.
From such a huge choice, humanity is put on a thread where if they don’t progress and finish the Aegis project, it might just mean the end of humanity if they can’t finish. Nevertheless, we’ve not seen how Aegis can help them, and how on top of that. Nevertheless, we’ve got quite a few more episodes to watch and see how it will go. Next week’s God Eater 5, titled “An Eye for an Eye/All in Vain” should be good.

Breslin is affecting as the ordinary young woman beneath the festering flesh, while Arnie shows a delicacy you’d never have suspected, at least not from his current TV ads with meerkats.
The premise is a tad too familiar and nothing that hasn’t been shown before in The Walking Dead or Romero’s movies, but Hobson makes up for it by sustaining an oppressive, relentless atmosphere of melancholy despite the film lacking in plot (and character) development.
