Attack On Titans is the Anime that was a rage in year 2013 in Japan and later the world among Anime fans.I got a chance to watch it last weekend and i must say it is worth the hype.
The story involves a human civilization living in a walled community guarded by 3 walls Maria Rose and Sheena.
The humans within the walls live under a constant threat from Titans.Titans are supposedly mindless giants whose sole purpose is to eat Humans.Yes only humans no other wild life only Humans.Humans on their part have three groups of people as line of defense.
Guardians who stay at the wall , Military corp who sty deep in the walls defending the king and surveyor corps who often dish out of the wall for research and are the ones who are exposed to the Titans the most.
Within the walls lives Eren with his parents and friends Mikasa and Armin. Eren is crazy about Surveyor corps and wants to join them in future. Their.Their life changes when one fine day a Colossus Titan emerges and brings down the first wall of defense forever changing the life of three friends.
The story is full of interesting characters and mystery where nothing is as it seems.As the story progresses we get to know the Titans are an Enigma to humans and nobody actually knows why the titans do what they do.They suddenly appeared a century ago and wiped out humans.As the story progresses Eren, Mikasa and Armin are joined by others as they train to be useful to humanity by joining Guardians, Military or Surveyor.The story is spread across a time frame of 5-6 years in which new intelligent titans are introduced. Eren learns more about himself and his family and back stories of various characters a revealed.Over all except for a few moments when some episodes seemed to be bit longer than they should be this anime is awesome.The fight scenes between the humans and Titans...the politics involved and the strategies employed to kill titans and reveal their motive are brilliantly pictured. Character like Eren, Mikasa, Armin and Later Captain Levi are well developed and the story has a great scope as it moves to next season in year 2016.
Overall Attack On Titans is a must watch for any Anime watcher out there.
What makes this all even more awesome is soon this show is going to be made into a live action movie.Now that is something to look forward to.
