During the presentation of Machi ★ Asobi , the official site of TV series God Eater/ゴッドイーター launched with a new key visual and teaser trailer, introducing an anime-only character; Renka Utsugi who is going to be paired with game character Alisa Illinichina Amiella.

Takayuki Hirao (Kara no Kyokai, Gyo) will be directing the series whereas Tetsuya (Sword Art Online II) is responsible for the character designs with Keita Shimizu (Fate/Zero) doing animation direction. Go Shiina from Gyo will be handling the music score for the series with the OP theme sang by OLDCODEX. The storyline of the series will be based on the first game’s story with some cameos of the characters from second game.

Casting listed on the site are Ryuichi Kijima, Hiroaki Hirata (Black Lagoon, Air Gear), Kazuya Nakai (Blade of the Immortal, Aldnoah Zero), Sayaka Ohara (Aldnoah Zero, Aria the Animation) Daisuke Sakaguchi (Amagi Brilliant Park, Air Master) and veteran Maaya Sakamoto (Blade of the Immortal, Kara no Kyokai). The voice actor, Ryuichi Kijima, who is voicing the new male protagonist got the part after a grueling audition of more than a hundred people. This is a step up for the 30 year old voice actor whose roles tend to be the minor background characters such as Student A in Shokugeki no Soma for example.

The highly anticipated ufotable’s (Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works, Fate/Zero) produced series will be aired on 5 July 2015. Expect some crazy monster busting action with dynamic camera works which is hallmark of studio ufotable.
