Attack on Titan


Recently, I have been following "Attack on Titan" and have finally caught up with the latest episodes in the past two days. According to the description on Netflix, the anime will be fully updated in April, and the manga will also come to an end at that time.

Speaking of this anime, it can be traced back to my high school days. The first time I heard about it was from my bunkmate. I remember he would recommend this anime while walking or eating. The most memorable catchphrase was "Levi is 160 centimeters tall". However, at that time, I wasn't interested in anime, so I didn't further explore it.

That was a missed opportunity of eight years.

Due to the recent update of "Attack on Titan: The Final Season", I have seen various recommendations from friends, so I curiously watched a few episodes and couldn't stop myself from getting hooked.

At first glance, I was immediately attracted by the bold plot and visuals of this anime - the mutated Titans, the violent scenes... it suits my taste. That's why I also like zombie movies like "The Walking Dead" and "Train to Busan".


In the first half of the first season, I thought it was just a story about humans fighting against Titans, but as the plot progressed, I realized that the ambition of the author, Hajime Isayama, went far beyond that. The first season laid down a lot of foreshadowing, which I really liked because it gave the anime a suspenseful feeling.

For example, where do the Titans come from? How were the three walls built by humans? Why do Eren and Mikasa have special abilities? What secrets are hidden in Eren's basement...

These questions grabbed my curiosity tightly.

As I delved deeper into the series, one mystery after another gradually unraveled. It was then that I realized I underestimated this anime. It is not just a simple portrayal of violence; on the contrary, its intentions are very profound, ranging from depicting human nature to discussing diplomacy between nations and the survival of humanity.

Furthermore, this anime goes against the norm and does not have the typical "fan service" elements found in many other anime. It has heartwarming scenes that make you feel warm inside and exciting moments that make your blood boil. While watching it, I have unconsciously shed tears several times because some moments are truly tear-jerking.

Keep attacking, Titans!

As for watching, I personally watched it on Netflix and posted about it on my Moments. One of my friends even got recommended Netflix because of it.
