Aniplex of America also debuted the English dub trailer confirming their cast members for the English version of the show. The dub will star Robbie Daymond (Fate/stay night [Unlimited Blade Works], Aldnoah.Zero) as Lenka, Kyle Hebert (Blue Exorcist, GURREN LAGANN) as Lindow Amamiya, Crispin Freeman (Durarara!! ×2, Fate/ Zero) as Soma Schicksal, Michelle Ruff (Durarara!! ×2, The Asterisk War) as Sakuya Tachibana, Cherami Leigh (Sword Art Online, Magi: the Kingdom of Magic) As Alisa Ilinichina Amiella, Lucien Dodge Aldnoah.Zero, Fate/Zero) as Kota Fujiki, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn (Ruroni Kenshin) as Tsubaki Amamiya, Patrick Seitz (Sword Art Online, DURARARA!!×2) as Johannes von Schicksal, Spike Spencer (Durarara!! ×2) as Paylor Sakaki, and Wendee Lee (Fate/Zero, Blue Exorcist) as Aisha Gauche.

The God Eater television series brings the popular game into the anime fore front with its stunning visuals, beautifully choreographed battle sequences and a pulse pounding soundtrack that sets the mood for each episode! With the high quality production that only ufotable can bring, every detail of the God Eater world comes to life! ANN says “Some anime based on video games fail to recreate the original's graphic quality. God Eater is the opposite. After getting a chance to view some of the source gameplay, it seems apparent to me that God Eater has visually leveled up in anime form.”

About God Eater:
In the early 2050s, unknown life forms called “Oracle Cells” began their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth. Their ravenous appetite and remarkable adaptability earned them first dread, then awe, and finally the name Aragami, the "Mad Gods." In the face of an enemy completely immune to conventional weapons, urban civilization collapsed, and each day humanity was driven further and further toward extinction.

The year is now 2071... the domain of the mad gods lies here in the Far East. 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...
