For the longest time, I didn’t get the hype behind Attack on Titan. On the surface, it just looks like a gore-fueled, post-apocalyptic world with giant, scary monsters.
Due to a slew of recommendations, though, I decided to watch an episode here and there, hoping that I would eventually grow to understand the fever most fans have for the series.
Before I knew it, I was all aboard the hype train, emotionally invested in the characters and the unique story Attack on Titan offers. Even a lot of the issues that cropped up at the start of the show soon became reasons I ended up loving it.
We are just (hopefully) a few weeks away from the series’ final season, so if you haven’t watched the show yet, check out the following reasons you need to binge-watch every episode of Attack on Titan right now.
Though I don’t enjoy gore, I can’t deny that even when I didn’t get the love for Attack on Titan, I knew that the animation was breathtaking. From the Titans’ sheer scope to the methods soldiers would use to combat them, fight sequences were always a highlight.
That statement goes double for any Levi scene, especially when he gets to let loose with ODM (Omni-directional mobility gear). The creativity that goes into the camera shots and sakuga during these scenes is top-class animation.
Even if you don’t end up watching the series in its entirety, you at least owe it to yourself to watch the characters traverse the environments like spider-men, as it is pretty awesome.
