Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
Anime Binge : Episode 05 – 16
Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) is clearly the best anime to be released in years. I tried to pace myself (one a week) but failed completely. It would take way to long to give my opinion on each episode so I’ll give my general opinion on the series. First I would say that “Attack on Titan” features a good variety of characters with different levels of skill. Many character are well written and reasonably well rounded. The overall tone remains consistently dire. While some of the episodes feature little or no action I felt that these lulls contribute to the suspense of when the next attack will occur. Animation quality remains constantly high. The story keeps me excited to see what happens next week (and who dies). There’s still exists a great deal of mystery regarding what drives the titans which keeps me intrigued. I still need to watch two more episodes to get on track. I can’t wait. So have you every “binged” on anime? Do you like the tone of Attack on Titan? Any ideas why the Titan attack humans? How they might reproduce? Are all the seeming intelligent “Titans” shifters like Eren?
