God Eater Episode 8: Lifespan

[HorribleSubs] GOD EATER - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.18_[2015.09.22_06.49.48]

This week’s episode works to establish Lenka as a capable leader. As a result, I was honestly expecting Lindow to die or be severely injured during his solo investigations (so that Lenka would be forced to replace him). Instead, Lenka was the one that received the death sentence. I guess I’m struggling with the story because everyone keeps trying to make Lenka similar to Lindow…I seriously expected Lenka’s character growth to make him a replacement.

It looks like next week’s episode will put some brilliant new plan into action. I’m not sure how splitting the Aragami into different species will make them easier to fight, but it seems like the plan is supposed to be brilliant or something. Maybe the true intention is reducing numbers, rather than lowering variability of the enemy. Either way, it also sounds (from the preview) like Lenka will getting a pretty cliche line of “if you use the God Arc again, you will die”…then he’ll probably use it anyway. Also, note that next week’s episode has been announced to be the final episode of this series…quality series, right?
