I wanted to read God Eater manga but I found that there are quite a lot of manga series in the franchise. What is the reading order of these manga?
What is the reading order of these manga?
Read them in the order they were published in.
Some may not know but God Eater indeed has a manga.
It has, but the manga itself is based on the original game, so it has nothing to do with the anime. (The anime itself is different because of the MC)
AFAIK, there are 4 mangas and here is a brief description:
- Return of the Messiah -> takes place in the original GE timeline
The story takes place in Fenrir America Branch, 1 year after the events of God Eater Burst.
- Spiral Fate -> takes place after the GE timeline
a manga that offers an alternate reality to the main continuity of the God Eater series, since the protagonist is Ryo Kagami, not Yu Kannagi.
Summer Wars -> side story about romance & stuff
Alisa Illinichina Amiella develops a feeling similar to respect for the 1st Unit leader, Yu Kannagi. Meanwhile, Alisa and Yu are dispatched to Aegis Island on a protection mission.
2nd Break-> takes place in the GE2 timeline
The manga is a prequel to God Eater 2 in the manga continuity.
The protagonist of each manga is different though, and it seems like they only appeared exclusively on that manga.
Here are the Mangas in other of Publication:
