    About God Eater

    God Eater is a science fiction action and adventure video game series developed by Shift. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, God Eater features the story of humanity’s stand against monsters who threaten their survival.

    Published in 2010 by BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment, the franchise is celebrating its 7th anniversary this 2017. Various events have been held to celebrate this milestone, including a partnership with Kotobukiya for a collaboration cafe and exhibition in July 2017. The cafe menu included crepes and drinks inspired by the game, and special tin badges were given with any purchase. At the exhibit, a special bromide featuring characters from the game were sold.

    God Eater was adapted into an animated series by animation studio Ufotable. The 13-episode series aired from July 12, 2015, to March 26, 2016. Fashion brand SuperGroupies also designed watches, sneakers, and hooded stoles inspired by the God Eater anime series.

    This October 2017, a music event entitled “GOD EATER ORCHESTRA LIVE Fenrir Far East Branch Performance” will be held as part of the continuing celebration of God Eater‘s anniversary.

    Performers and Music

    GOD EATER ORCHESTRA LIVE puts the spotlight on artists who have performed songs for the game series. Among them are May J. who sang God Eater 2 Rage Burst ending theme “Faith” and Donna Burke who did the vocal version of “God and Man” in the God Eater original soundtrack. Enjoy their soulful voices as they sing songs of hope. Nami Nakagawa and Jon will also be joining the event. A Fenrir Special Symphony Orchestra has also been assembled and will perform notable pieces that brought life to the game.

    It has also been confirmed from the event announcement broadcast over at Niconico that “炎の舞” from God Eater and “Wings of Tomorrow” from God Eater 2 Rage Burst will be performed during the show. Both of these pieces are invigorating to listen to and will surely liven up this event!
