"Shingeki No Kyojin" Reviews
Very fun to watch.
It's great, but you already know that.
Characters are interesting overall. While the main character Eren is a little bland (focused on pointless vengeance), his backstory does spark some intrigue, especially his disturbing psyche as a child. While some dialogue sequences were a little odd (unrelatable) and out of place, I'm not gonna complain because this is anime, not real life, so sure, talk poetically and act cool. Only thing I'd say is that even though this is often seen as an anime that is completely unforgiving to its characters, you never really feel nervous for the main 3 protags after the big twist early on. Plot armor is a little strong for the 3 despite the world they live in. Perhaps it would've been better if Mikasa or Arwin could've taken over as the main and hence go through some serious character development, rather than just have a super-powered main like so many other series.
Art direction wise, 9.8/10. Excellent, with the odd animation hiccup once in a while (like Eren's mother's ears changing size dramatically as she moves, etc) But the incredibly key-framed dynamic sequences more than makes up for it.
Overall, I think the best part about this anime is its premise.
So simple, yet effective. Props to the author.
The title states my feelings towards this anime. Characters are unique in their own rights. Eren (the MC) has some cliche characteristics, but this does not deter from his overall persona. He is fueled by rage/hatred and while not being too OP like many enjoyable chars from other series... he remains strong in his resolve and purpose.
The Main purpose of this review is to share a little info to other fans.
SEASON 2 announced Spring 2017!!!!!!! https://my*****.net/news/46754268
This anime is amazing
Shingeki no kyojin is one of the most intense, anime I've ever watched.the characters in it have a certain grim look, not just on their faces but in their eyes. People in this anime are driven out of sanity, because of fear, but one man stands up and vows revenge for not just his mother, but for humanity. The main characters dark and grim passion, will seem a little scary , and not very human but remember , that's humanity being tortured by fear. Do your best to see from the main characters perspective, and u will get hooked.
b2k1235 you are so mainstream.
Now that this series has ended I feel as if it does need a review. While I have read many reviews about this anime when it began and half way of the series I felt as if I should wait until it finishes to type a review. Well for sure the opening and ending songs are magnificent I absolutely loved them. I also loved the voice actor of Eren, maybe because he was the voice actor for Shu of Guilty Crown and Alibaba from Magi, two amazing animes btw. I also loved each character, a unique personality to each. Mikasa is just simply beautiful, Armin is a genius and Jean basically shows us that its okay to be scared, just keep pushing forward. Each episode was amazing, my favorite episodes are episode 1 and episode 22. Two episodes that gave me goosebumps, while I do believe a season 2 is due, all we can do is wait. I really recommend anyone to watch this anime, its just too amazing to simply shrug off. While Shingeki no kyojin could be 2013 anime of the year, imagine if a second season appears, on that year Shingeki no Kyojin 2 would win again in my opinion. So for all those reading this review, click on the first episodes get ready to be amazed and enjoy yourself! TO BATTLE AGAINST THE TITANS!

I have to agree to an extent. However there is a frustration throughout the series that you gradually feel the main story is indeed dragged out. Now here's the reason why. It seems as if writer goes through the trouble contently raising tons questions but never giving any real answers. This form of writing is more suited for mystery novels. You know, the one's where the main character is a detective, he scours from scene to scene to find and piece the clues needed to solve that mystery. However instead the story (that is what the anime seems to really be about) revolves around a bunch of kids that got pulled into a set of unfortunate events. The context and focus of the anime is more derived around their traumas and trials rather than the mystery of the titans.Personal I feel the story would've been better if such a mystery wouldn't have been brought to the viewers' attention. It would've made more sense to simply let the mystery unfold on its' own rather than constantly tease the audience. A sad fact is that if you watch ep. 1 through 23, including 13.5, and if you pay attention you'll find a horde of direct and subtle questions that are indeed left unanswered. Another note an important rule to writing anything, you don't bring a ton of questions to the reader without any explanation. Whether you answer them with truth or lies you have to satisfy the viewers' curiosity to some extent. This is likely the reason why there are some people that hate this anime. I'm actually writing this review for them.Now then, if after ep. 5 you find this anime annoying well then take my word for it. The main story is amazing, endure the side tracked episodes, I will vouch that they have purpose and are needed for character development, watch them all. Bare through the flashbacks, keep in mind this is story's more about survival and not the mystery of the titans. If you can do that you'll find the anime is easily worth five stars.
Already I'm done now so bring on the hate.
Shingeki No Kyojin/Attack On Titan: Episodes 1-23 Review
Shingeki No Kyojin is an anime adaption of the Manga of the same name by Hajime Isayama. The series has stunning artwork and alongside it's soundtrack marks it as one of the best animes of its season.
The plot revolves around a host of characters in a war of survival against the Titans, monstrous human-like giants with a reminiscently "Frankenstein" feel to them. Yet among this wide array of characters we have our three core protagonists; Eren Jaegar, Mikasa Ackerman and Armin Arlert. Each with their own capabilities and each serving as a center point for events which occur in a breakneck fashion throughout the series.
This series, does not make the mistake of dragging the plot out too much, nor make the mistake of it feeling rushed. It feels in fact that exactly the right amount of time is used to portray each scene perfectly. In short; masterful pacing. I shall not go into a great deal of the plot for fear of spoiling it, but I will say that it is so full of twists and turns you'll likely need to catch your breath at the end of next to every episode. This is because the story is quick, clever, violent and gruesome, often tragic and never lets you feel comfortable in knowing precisely what's going on. Yet you are pulled to continue watching due to your love for the characters and the next to near-constant threat of their deaths. Whether be from human or titan.
(Yes, this series DOES kill off central characters like swatting flies, be prepared to have your heartstrings pulled to breaking point)
There IS some very well done comedy throughout, never feeling forced, as well as occasional romantic elements that lifts the spirits of the series, yet ultimately it only binds your attachments to the characters whom you wish to survive all the more. CAUTION: Sometimes leaving a bitter taste in the mouth for days to come as a result.
Thrills and chills are the main backbone of this unconventional horror, keeping you watching as it explores some of the classic themes of; what makes good and evil? And are Humans the real monsters? etc. Posing these questions intermingle amid our disgust toward the Titans. Illogical beings, almost silly in nature yet which still manage to make you want to look away at times. They serve as a near perfect villain for the series as they push humanity toward an extinction; meaning that their true threat does not go overboard as many series do. Instead, they exist simply as a walking eating embodiment of death, one of Humanity's oldest and most banal and terrifying fears. Despite this however, they also serve as perhaps the single biggest mystery of the series. In a world both logical and genuinely realistic in nature, they pose as the one big gap in the fence.
What exactly, are the Titans?
for those who have not yet watched it attack on titan is an amazing anime
the story is set in a world where the last of mankind hides behind 3 walls from the mighty titans, 5 metres to 15 metres tall humanoids, after a hundred years of peace behind the walls the titans attack. the behemoth titan apperas out of nowhere breaking one of the walls and the titans surge forth. during the titan attack the main characters, eren jeager, mother dies he escapes with his friends ,mikasa ackerman and armin alrert, from the titans with the aide of a garisson member, those who protect the walls. after those events eren vows to slaughter all the titans.
the characters are not all killing machines the characters are weak and they acknowledge that. they have weaknesses and their strengths, and most of all they are afraid they aren't invincible and afraid of nothing. their personaltites are unique, an interesting, watching the characters develop has been interesting.
this is a story unlike any other its so original, and has alot of potential. there is a lot of mystery shrouding the history of the titans, and the story progresses quite quickly.
the anime gets better with each episode no episode is unimportant to the story, the animation gets better with each eps, the opening and ending are probably my favourite of any animes. characters are amazing same with the story.
5 out of 5
A new type of anime
I have been watching anime ever since, and this type anime is particularly new to me, everything about it is unique in every way, ofcourse, each story line has to have a theme, and the theme of this anime is vengeance and the freedom, who would've thought that an author would use death and gore to it's pinultimate stage in an anime, it has been rarely used, and by far this was the only other anime/manga I have encountered to date (the other one is the unrated urotsukidoji series). Character build up is excellent, the story plot is quite amazing, the flash back scenes explains everything in detail (flashback is actually needed in anime/manga so explain to kids how things came to be), and best of all is the detailed animation, never have I encountered such emotional details in any anime such as this. Every episode on the anime keeps you holding in for more as each passing episode keeps you guessing on what will happen next.
To make this short, anime fans of my generation (which I can say around the Era of Ch?denji Machine Voltes V came out) should have a look on this great, unique and amazing anime. It's worth the watch.
