Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called Titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. What makes these giants truly terrifying is that their taste for human flesh is not born out of hunger but what appears to be out of pleasure. To ensure their survival, the remnants of humanity began living within defensive barriers, resulting in one hundred years without a single titan encounter. However, that fragile calm is soon shattered when a colossal Titan manages to breach the supposedly impregnable outer wall, reigniting the fight for survival against the man-eating abominations.

After witnessing a horrific personal loss at the hands of the invading creatures, Eren Yeager dedicates his life to their eradication by enlisting into the Survey Corps, an elite military unit that combats the merciless humanoids outside the protection of the walls. Eren, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman, and his childhood friend Armin Arlert join the brutal war against the Titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached.

Attack on Titan is a masterpiece that takes you on an emotional roller-coaster. From the thrilling plot twists to the intricately crafted characters. It'll have you on the edge of your seat from the very first episode. Set in a world where mankind is locked inside walls to protect themselves from towering human-eating giants, the colossal walls that serve as humanity’s last line of defense against the Titans are a constant reminder of how precarious their existence is. The visual depictions of these towering giants – with their grotesque facial features and eerie movements – add to the dark and suspenseful atmosphere of the series, ...

Mixed Feelings

Attack on Titan (AOT hereon) was the most overhyped title of its year, pretty much like Madoka Magica and Sword Art Online (SAO) were in the years right before it. And just like those, it did not live up to its hype, as pretty much no show ever does. It was a high seller that was talked about for some time, and eventually ended up being a big disappointment. And yes, I have read the manga so I know what I am talking about regarding later plot twists.

Just like it happens with all overhyped mediocrities, the thing that made it so famous is the premise. ...
