Synopsis

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. Based on Hajime Isayama’s award-winning manga, Shingeki no Kyojin follows Eren, along with his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and his childhood friend Armin Arlert, as they join the brutal war against the titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached.

Review

You’ve seen this already, most likely, and probably want to hear some good praise. So here is my praise; I liked it at the time. The opening premise was pretty good and in retrospect the show gradually got worse to terrible over time. The most boring parts were the huge fights which took too long and went nowhere. Also the writer of the anime clearly has no direction at all to where his manga is going since the plot has changed so much over time. This means that the events we get are introduced in such a crazy horrible way that it’s hard to believe anything. You’ve seen this already, I saw it and it was a show that got me into anime but I can look back on it as something that has been beaten in quality over and over again.
