Attack on Titan Review
Attack on Titan is a well written, epic and thrilling adventure from beginning till end. One thing that stands out with this anime apart from the man-eating giants is that the story moves with the characters development and age. At one point of time the main protagonist’s perceived objective and goal is DRASTICALLY changed due to new found knowledge obtained from enlightening events. This show has everything from a brilliant story to incredible, jaw dropping fight scenes.
There’s always a Question in this anime.
- Why is there a wall?
- Who made the wall?
- Where did the giants come from?
- What’s after the wall?
It’s just a complete mystery till the end and then some!
The characters are true throughout…what do I mean by this? In some anime the main protagonist or side character betrays his persona either through LACK of story writing or length of time the story has been running for, but with Attack on Titan the characters grow with the story and you know how the person will react to a certain drastic event. This doesn’t make it predictable but makes the story and animation feel more true.
It is no wonder why this anime is topping the charts for most watched and liked show and why I’m excited when a new season comes out again!

How this anime is a shounen I will never know. I still have nightmares of the people’s screams while being eaten alive calling for their mums. It is that intense!
An incredible story with unexpected turns of events throughout. Fight scenes are flying swordsman defeating man-eating giants!… what’s not to like.
The story becomes slow at times but for a good reason. The protagonist and antagonists are calculating their next move!
Once all the pieces are in play, sit back and enjoy the show. 🙂
