Attack on Titan Episodes 1-25 review

Attack on Titan Episodes 1-25 directed by Testuro Araki, produced by Wit Studio and Production I.G. (Collaboration) Review

When titans destroy the wall that humanity had been living behind for the past 100 years in relative peace, Eren finds himself without his parents. With only Mikasa, a girl who had been living with his family, left beside him along with his friend Armin: Eren sets out on a quest to destroy the titans. The road he will travel will be fraught with peril. Will Eren survive? 

Based on a shonen (boys’) Japanese comic, Attack on Titan is filled with blood and gore from the word go. With that in mind, the show is really well done. The action is thrilling and there are twists around every corner. Attack on Titan in general is very well written. That being said it is not without flaw.

The series relies heavily on stills, particularly in its first half, and has an abrupt change in pace part way through. However, the series when it chooses to do so is well animated and the show more than compensates for its flaws artistically with its excellent writing. In conclusion the show is a seriously addictive dark fantasy series that is easy to become invested in.

Rating: 8/10

Attack on Titan is streaming on Crunchyroll and
