The unknown streaming service Daisuki is going to get a lot more famous. The streaming service announced it will stream the God Eater anime set to debut on July 5 during the Summer Anime block. This announcement is a huge win since the service relegated to a dump of streaming content post-Crunchyroll subscribers only content.
The synopsis from the website follows:
The Far East, 2071.
The domain of the mad gods.
In the early 2050s, unknown life forms called “Oracle cells” begin their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth.
Their ravenous appetite and remarkable adaptability earn them first dread, then awe, and finally the name “aragami”.
In the face of an enemy completely immune to conventional weapons, urban civilization collapses, and each day humanity is driven further and further toward extinction.
One single ray of hope remains for humanity.
Following the development of “God Arcs”—living weapons which incorporate Oracle cells—their wielders are organized into an elite force.
In a world ravaged by mad gods, these “God Eaters” fight a desperate war…
ufotable of Fate/Zero fame will animate God Eater with Takayuki Hirao acting as Director. Hiaro worked on the Garden of Sinners series as well as directed an episode of Paranoia Agent.
The cast from the website follows:
Lenka Utsugi: Ryuichi Kijima
Rindou Amamiya: Hiroaki Hirata
Soma Shichsal: Kazuya Nakai
