Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.
Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.
This anime is amazing Shingeki no kyojin is one of the most intense, anime I\\\'ve ever watched.the characters in it have a certain grim look, not just on their faces but in their eyes. People in this anime are driven out of sanity, because of fear, but one man stands up and vows revenge for not just his mother, but for humanity. The main characters dark and grim passion, will seem a little scary , and not very human but remember , that\\\'s humanity being tortured by fear. Do your best to see from the main characters perspective, and u will get hooked.
this series has not ended it is scheduled to continue and there is a 3d movie being made based on the series, theyve confirmed tons more eps to come. Everyone can put their party hat on again. Just remember your patience caps at the door...it might be a little bit before we see the next series.
Now that this series has ended I feel as if it does need a review. While I have read many reviews about this anime when it began and half way of the series I felt as if I should wait until it finishes to type a review. Well for sure the opening and ending songs are magnificent I absolutely loved them. I also loved the voice actor of Eren, maybe because he was the voice actor for Shu of Guilty Crown and Alibaba from Magi, two amazing animes btw. I also loved each character, a unique personality to each. Mikasa is just simply beautiful, Armin is a genius and Jean basically shows us that its okay to be scared, just keep pushing forward. Each episode was amazing, my favorite episodes are episode 1 and episode 22. Two episodes that gave me goosebumps, while I do believe a season 2 is due, all we can do is wait. I really recommend anyone to watch this anime, its just too amazing to simply shrug off. While Shingeki no kyojin could be 2013 anime of the year, imagine if a second season appears, on that year Shingeki no Kyojin 2 would win again in my opinion. So for all those reading this review, click on the first episodes get ready to be amazed and enjoy yourself! TO BATTLE AGAINST THE TITANS!
