Attack on Titan / Shingeki no Kyojin
Review By: John Fragglepuss Evans
Genre: Action, Fantasy, Tragedy, Post-Apocalyptic
First aired: Spring 2013, 25 episodes plus specials
Summary: This was THE new show of 2013. The story is about titans coming back into the world after a long hiatus. Titans could be described as being similar to a giant or an ogre. Even though they are terrifying, I laugh whenever they run. Humans live in walled cities to protect themselves from the titans, but a colossal titan wrecks the wall and thus begins the chaos. Eren, Mikasa, and Armin are the center of the anime. They join the battle against the titans. They use maneuver gear and awesome sword-type weaponry to fight the titans.
For anyone that has already watched Attack on Titan, I suggest that you keep a look out for special episodes. They pop up from time to time, including one that gives a little insight into the titan’s mind, and another that involves a cook-off with deeper meaning…
You might enjoy this if: You are looking for an intense anime that holds nothing back. There is a lot of mystery in this anime, and it will leave you wanting more.
You might not like it if: You are turned off by violence.
Note to the Viewer: Beware of growing attached to the characters.
