Check on the internet the impressions left by fans about the first soundtrack. Although the anime does not say from where they come from and I won't do spoilers, it's repeated several times that the enemies are the human beings with their fear who have surrendered to the giants without doing anything, ignoring and accepting to live like cattle and the walls! These moments are few and far between however, and are immediately drowned out once the hype builds back up again. The openings speak for themselves, they do the anime justice.

Gintama, the greatest gag series ever, comes to mind. Grelle shuffles between nervously unstable and frantically stern for his portrayal as Armin, and Trina Nishimura pulls off both Mikasa's warmth and ferocity to near perfection.
Attack on Titan is such a well-done product that it has all the key strong points we all dream every series could have. His intense focus on his own rage and desires for revenge slowly consumes part of who he is, which becomes especially present at several points throughout the series that I can't go further into detail on due to massive amounts of spoilers. 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. Why is she doing this? Overall though, this is a minor blemish on an otherwise excellent dub. There are not brave men, without fear, that kill all the wicked.
On course, all of these brilliant combinations of animation are to be expected from Araki, who has already brought us both the intensely stylized atmosphere of Death Note and the blood-pumping action of Guilty Crown. The feelings of not being at the top of the food chain. 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. In this world, we meet three young children Eren Yeager, his adopted sister Mikasa, and their friend Armin, as they live out their peaceful lives in the southernmost city at the edge of the outer wall, Wall Maria. There's a diverse variety of characters that fight for humanity for all different reasons.
There are certain points, especially at some slightly slower moments in the series, where its gets a little too over-dramatic, to the point of almost being ridiculous. The soundtrack in the anime was epic as shit. They tend have 3 or 4 at most. For those of you who have seen Death Note same director , you will feel an extra feeling of similarity with Attack on Titan, as the show relies heavily on its intense emotional scenes which you most certainly will feel the first 2 minutes of episode 1. Before I wrote this review, I wrote a different piece moments after watching the first episode stating that Attack on Titan had all the potential to become a landmark anime, knowing very little of how true that statement would turn out to be.
And I, like most of you, am very familiar with the relationship of manga-anime adaptation, which is the case of Attack on Titan. In the meantime, this is simply the best anime series in the last 15 years. There's trust, friendship, along with betrayals, and pains. Don't misunderstand, they are not similar by any means, they are simply equally as masterful. Oh, that will happen to you for the first time in episode 5.
Synopsis Centuries ago, mankind was slaughtered to near extinction by monstrous humanoid creatures called titans, forcing humans to hide in fear behind enormous concentric walls. Nothing you have seen before is in this show. Note I emphasize the voice acting because it's part of the anime but, obviously, not of the manga. Here there are people who are fighting against their own fear and that sometimes they make it and sometimes not. Levi is certainly a fan-favorite character, because of the fact that he's cool, overpowered, badass, kind-in-the-heart, smart, straight-to-the-point, and most of all, hilarious with all his neat-freakiness.
As for the action itself, Wit Studios has no qualms at all with handing out incredible fight sequences by the barrel-full via an in-world tool used by humanity's military known as 3D Maneuver Gear, allowing us to break away from standard ground combat and enter the world of high-flying intensity, with soldiers bolting off of every building in sight, into the air above them, and landing blade-first on the neck of a Titan. By this I mean that I hope you don't enjoy getting attached to characters, like I do, as you may find yourself curled up in a corner at some point. Isayama is putting on the same level all human beings, he is saying that we are all like that guy who shoots himself alone after he surrendered to fear, that we are all as Vernam who during the attack fled from Trost , that there is some of us who is better than others, but that we all live under the same fears, and even if we react differently, we act according to substantially the same nature. This is the first time I have ever written a detailed review of an anime series. It's The anime series of my adult era. You can understand the anime very well even without having read the manga. My only notable flaw with the dub is Bryce Papenbrook as Eren.
Speaking of grim and horrifying, that comparison to Game of Thrones earlier was far from being an off-handed comment. The only thing I have to say is I was extremely impressed throughout the whole show until I saw a certain scene in episode 11 where the 3D maneuver gear was used, and I was stunned. The anime certainly has a good amount of gore, and will break your heart frequently if you get attached to the characters. When the Summer of 2012 rolled along, it was time for Sword Art Online to take the spotlight, and its own popularity grew to heights far beyond that of The Future Diary. Next is Mikasa, who, for the majority of the series, is portrayed as being essentially flawless, taking on the role of the unstoppable badass Titan slayer fresh out of training who also makes time to coddle her adoptive brother, and this flawlessness is built up to the point of it almost being a flaw in itself. Attack on Titan is part of that elite group. What's so different from us, and the titans? Hope my english was not so bad : Overall 10 Story 10 Animation 10 Sound 10 Character 10 Enjoyment 10 In the 80's, Mobile Suit Gundam catapulted anime in Japan.
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. The story is one of the most captivating stories I've ever seen. This includes character development, which I believe is the key to the success and extreme popularity of the characters. Of course, I may be over-thinking things, but the anime certainly included some themes while creating this masterpiece of an anime. I'm amazed by the amount of attention it got on the internet and the hundreds of parodies derived from it.
The suspense build-up was absolutely amazing, yet there was still room for improvement; that shows just how epic this anime can get. Based on Hajime Isayama's award-winning manga, Shingeki no Kyojin follows Eren, along with his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and his childhood friend Armin Arlert, as they join the brutal war against the titans and race to discover a way of defeating them before the last walls are breached. I cannot stress enough how unique the characters are. The voices of so many main characters from hit series come together in Attack on Titan to help provide that epic feeling you start to get once episode 1 ends. Shouldn't they be their salvation? Then, of course, later episodes also take it to a whole new level, but you're probably gonna be used to that quality of greatness by then. During the chaos, Eren witnesses his mother being eaten by a Titan, and now he, Mikasa, and Armin have joined the military in the hopes of acquiring the skills necessary to take vengeance on the creatures that destroyed their lives.
