Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called Titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. What makes these giants truly terrifying is that their taste for human flesh is not born out of hunger but what appears to be out of pleasure. To ensure their survival, the remnants of humanity began living within defensive barriers, resulting in one hundred years without a single titan encounter. However, that fragile calm is soon shattered when a colossal Titan manages to breach the supposedly impregnable outer wall, reigniting the fight for survival against the man-eating abominations.

After witnessing a horrific personal loss at the hands of the invading creatures, Eren Yeager dedicates his life to their eradication by enlisting into the Survey Corps, an elite military unit that combats the merciless humanoids outside the protection of the walls. Eren, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman, and his childhood friend Armin Arlert join the brutal war against the Titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached.

I will not be fully objective, since I am particularly fond of this anime, but I think that we can't deny the fact that it's one of the best and most impactful works of the last decade. Like other great works, I am convinced that (and I already know) AOT will be a source of inspiration for the future ones. I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the ending, but that’s another matter. AOT is one of the best anime I’ve seen. The characterization of the characters is profound and rich in changes, all appreciated. The story starts in a way and gradually takes a different turn ...

ENG/ESP Review on Shingeki no Kyojin
This review contains minor spoilers.


It is clear that I have come very late to the hype-train of Shingeki no Kyojin, years later in fact; I don't know why but this show never quite caught my attention and I only started to get interested when the show had already blown up the anime and manga community in every possible way and I can see why; Shingeki no Kyojin is quite fun to watch, as I have finished it in just 3 days and not only this, it also has an animation that surely revolutionized 2014 in a similar way to Kimetsu ...

this anime is fascist. it tries using allegories to depict it and at some point, attemps to make anti-fascists and anti-militarism remarks in it's story. fails miserably. the only thing this anime succesfully achieves by the end is depicting a genocide.

if you still want to watch this hot piece of garbage, you'll probably stay due to the art style and action scenes being fun to watch. if you leave your political side behind, this is actually a fun experience. nothing magical, something that will change your life forever, but a little fun thing to watch before you go to sleep or anything like that.

or you ...
