Bandai Visual is handling the home video release for the God Eater anime adaptation and as we just now get the first volume out, the artwork for the second volume has arrived. The series is getting a seven volume release beginning on October 29th, 2015 where the first volume has one episode and the remainder have two each. The first volume is priced at 5,000 yen while the second to seventh volumes are priced at 7,000 yen each. Check out the details of what to expect with each release below.
The show has set Takayuki Hirao to direct it. Hirao has a solid backgruond to be sure and has done work for the games, but he also worked on the Gyo OVA, which is hilariously vicious, as well as the fifth installment of the Garden of Sinners project. The project has also brought on board Keita Shimizu to handle the character designs for the series, which will be interesting as he handled the animation on Fate/Zero.
The cast includes Ryuichi Kijima as Renka Utsugi, Hiroaki Hirata as Lindow Amamiya, Maaya Sakamoto as Alisa Illinichina Amiella, Kazuya Nakai as Soma Schicksal, Daisuke Sakaguchi as Kota Fujiki and Sayaka Ohara as Sakuya.

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…
