This past summer seasons epic would be the action packed thriller Attack on Titan. Simply put this show “brought it”. From epic music to a gripping storyline to relatable characters, Attack on Titan is at the pinnacle of summers anime.
Synopsis: In a world where humanity has been hunted to near extinction by gruesome giants called Titans, the last bastion of
humanity is simply trying to survive. But when the security of their last resistance is compromised, Eren Jaeger is changed into a vengeful soldier who hopes to one day retake not only his home but the outside world.
This show is not afraid to crush all hope for the viewer and for that I LOVE it. It adds a sense of realism and appreciation of every character you see on screen. So having that said the writers are definitely not afraid to kill off favored characters.
Early episodes in this show focus on Eren’s youth and his growth into a soldier who hunts Titans, progressing from the time his mother is devoured by a Titan before his eyes, to his graduation from the cadets into the Scouting Regiment, who take their business outside the walls currently protecting the last of humanity to find some ultimate cure to the Titan plague.
Would give this show 4.5 out of 5 stars. It is an almost perfect smash hit. There is a bit of slowness that drags on for an episode or two in the middle of the season, but before and after those few episodes, it is nothing short of great.
