Animenewsnetwork - I watch science-fiction fantasy shows like God Eater in order to escape the real world for a while. So when the show has an airing schedule this erratic, it absolutely affects my enjoyment. It's impossible to look at episode 9 and judge it purely for its standalone content—its context in our world must also be examined. As an episode, this week's installment is fairly strong, with beautiful imagery, new exposition, and a powerful message. As the final episode of God Eater until an unspecified time “this winter”, it has left me cold.
