Have you ever faced an obstacle that felt so overbearing that you wanted to give up? Well, try to imagine yourself in your city, going about your daily life as usual until, suddenly, something terrifying happens. There's something, or someone, peering over the defensive wall surrounding your city. The wall is smashed to bits and soon you see more and more of these giants raiding your city. You knew they existed, but you never saw one...until now.

That is the basis for the premiere of Attack on Titan. The show begins with intensity and never lets up. In fact, it just gets stronger. The writing is impeccable, and the voice artists know just how to break every fragment of your heart.

The artistry is what really caught my attention. The time, effort, and patience it must have taken to draw every single frame is mind-blowing. The smoothness of the characters' movements, the action sequences, and the design of the Titans are all top-notch.

The story never falters or gets boring, which is always a concern for me when it comes to any series. Sometimes, a show can start amazing but by the end of the first season, you have no idea how they could possibly continue the same storyline. That is not the case for Attack on Titan. By the end of the season, there are so many possibilities of progression that it's easy to sit and stare at the screen once the final scene ends and excitedly wonder what's going to happen next.

In conclusion, I thoroughly recommend this show to any anime fan or to anybody who has never seen anime before. This certainly will get you interested. Be sure, though, to find the original Japanese audio with English subtitles. As I mentioned before, the Japanese voice artists are remarkable, as they can make you laugh or they can tear your heart out. Trust me, it is so much better to feel the heartbreak rather than just stare at the screen. Putting yourself in their shoes, in their position, helps you appreciate the show tremendously, and this is a show that deserves and needs to be appreciated.

      The animation and soundtrack are amazing. While AoT is a good anime to recommend, not everyone can stomach the gruesomeness and beautifully animated deaths.
