God Eater Episode 1 Thoughts

by AJ Adejare

  • The animation is different.  Giving off a Persona 4 feel in character type, shading, it comes off as different, maybe a bit fuzzy.  I’m assuming that the fuziness may come from Daisuki.
  • There’s a LOT of slo mo.  I mean a lot.  It’s not only overdone but it loses its emphasis as it goes on throughout the episode
  • The action is actually fairly interesting.  While the pacing can be off because of slow mo, it feels like it has a certain weight to the swinging and attacks.
  • The Aragami look fairly interesting.  The CG isn’t bad and not that noticeable.  We’ll have to see how it is when the lighting is a bit better.
  • The story feels interesting and seems like we’re going to see a lot more to come.  With that said, I’m glad that for the most part they avoided dialog bombing (aka explain everything by saying it) and instead showed it off.
  • Overall, it looks like it’s going to slow burn but may turn out interesting.
