Analysis

Let’s go to the opening! This anime had two openings and that is a mistake, they started well with a very epic and powerful opening and then they blew it, and like the episodes the series started to decrease is quality! Bellow I present the first opening! And a link, to the second (credits to the shadows artwork).

(Attack on Titan - first opening)

For me this is a tough review, I admit this anime had everything and that was his downfall! To try to be everything generally is bad and it was not an exception in this anime.
They started really god, presented a world in turmoil, the suffer and bloodbath that the Titan produced and the main characters presentation. But it was when they present to supports characters and the training facilities that I started to enjoy (epic potato moment)

The representation of pass time was pretty bad, It took 3 episodes to represent 3-5 years and then 6-7 episodes to represent a morning has really stupid.

The good points, as I stated and what could have make if they use it better a very good anime was the supporting characters, we only being focus in Eren state of mind, even Armin and Mikasa doesn’t express any idea of what the view of the world!

The dad arc abandoned and retrieved to be abandoned again it was one of the biggest miss ever!

Some points stay without answer, they could explore and said what happen to the other cities in Maria Wall, that don’t collapse in a Titan attack!

Sorry to the fans, but the second part of the story looked that was changed to take advantage of the hype that Attack on Titans received!



It is pretty obvious, that this show will receive a second season, I sincerely was hopeful, that this anime to not transform in a never ending show that probably will receive a rush ending due to low ratings and then, try one last money score in a big movie!

Season II - Expectations

·        For me one of the most intriguing point of the all anime is the Walls, I would like to know, how, why and who built then.
·        As I said, the basement and key arc, should be abandoned, they screw up in season I, is an arc that is doing a pretty damage to the history!
·        The dad arc, and if the dad will be in the Human Titan transformers side or in the Humanity side is an answer I would love to be answered.
·        Explore the world outside the Maria Wall.
·        And for last, please put the focus in more fight scenes against the Titans that is what they performed better in season I.
