Anime adaptation of Bandai Namco’s PSP action game series “God Eater.”
Set in Japan in the year 2071 where the world has been mostly destroyed by mysterious monsters known as the Aragami. An organization known as Fenrir was made to exterminate Aragami using weapons called God Arcs which is made from the cells of an Aragami. Those who specialize in exterminating Aragami are known as God Eaters. Originally God Eaters had one type in which their God Arcs can only keep gun form or blade form, however a new type has been discovered that can switch between gun and blade form. Since then, they have been classified new-types and the previous as old-types.

Personal Synopse –
It’s about the video game God Eater. Plays like somewhat of a faster-paced Monster Hunter with a somewhat anime-esque plot (which is why they made an anime of it after all this time, see? :3)
If you’re into that kind of thing buy it.
So you have these scientists that discover a new type of cell that seems to “devour” anything it touches from solids to liquids to raw lightning, then incorporates the material into itself. “You are what you eat” taken to the extreme; being able to drastically alter their structure just by consumption without any mutation necessary meant that what normally takes millions of years to happen by natural selection takes seconds to adapt to for oracle cells. The world thus ends by giant monster apocalypse a few months later.
Being nearly unkillable due to just eating any conventional weaponry that comes their way (case in point, there’s a species that’s now basically a walking tank) and a fair bit of religious statues and such being guzzled down and made part of their anatomy, people started comparing them to mythological gods, and they were christened Aragami.
And of course we have the people that fight these things around the world to protect civilians. This story is about them.
