Attack on Titan: Part 1

Updated on December 2, 2015

Attack on Titan is a popular anime and manga (Japanese cartoon and graphic novels) about humanity surviving and fighting off creatures called Titans. They are giant human-like beings with no genitalia who eat humans and destroy villages. Our main protagonist, Eren Jager, has lost his mother to the Titans and joins the scouting section of the military (called the Survey Corp by crunchyroll's subtitles) so he can fight them and get his revenge. His friends all join also.

Anime Opening

We were excited to see this movie and bought tickets months in advance. Die hard fans talked about it at least a year in advance. I heard about it through some anime fans that happen to be looking into adopting through our pet rescue (my foster cat's name was Titan). I do not know how they ended up with the movie that showed on the screen that night, but it was an atrocity on several levels.

First, there were tons of people talking throughout the entire movie. Two of them were just a few seats away from us. They just had to comment on everything. Usually I would be ready to start something but with my candidacy, I have to be on my best behavior. After the movie, other people commented about the talking.

Even without the commentary, the movie bombed. It started out decent although with a lot of exposition and mindless talking. However, when the colossal titan came over the wall, it looked amazing. The other titans were touch and go. Many of them were females. There was only one female titan in the anime and it showed up in the last few episodes. Some of them had the goofy look on their faces that most titans had. Others just looked like naked humans walking around.

It was downhill from there. Mikasa disappears and becomes some sort of superhero titan warrior, raised by the head officer of the scouting team. There was a girl who was a single mother who tried to seduce the main character. She did not exist in the anime. They had to get through a lot of material and they could not have explained it worse. I wanted the movie to be over the whole time. Most of the time, I was lost on what was happening.


If you were part of the AOT universe, what branch of the military would you join?

We bought tickets for both movies at the same time and plan on seeing the other movie just so we did not waste our money. This was one movie I wish we had downloaded.
