Check-out Station: Attack on Titan ep25

September 29, 2013 Leave a comment

Oh the glory! I’ve pretty much loved everything this show has done since the beginning, pacing complaints be damned. It always seemed like the show was aware of the viewers eye upon it, which kinda explains why the show seems so melodramatic. So I thought it was a nice little bit of fanservice (intentional or otherwise) to see the crazed and pompous worshipers of the walls be included in last week’s ending scene, where we see Eren clobber Annie into a building. I laughed so hard and happily that it might have disturbed somebody if they were in the room with me. Read more…

Attack on Titan ep24: it’s a cruel world out there

September 22, 2013 2 comments

What do you do when one of your buddies turns into a giant that’s willing to kill everyone, and anyone in the pursuit of your abduction? You run like hell! With Annie exposed and in titan form, it’s become a mad rush to get some space and mount a counterattack.  Unfortunately, it looks like Annie is willing to risk killing Eren in pursuit of his death, on the other hand, Eren is much less enthusiastic about fighting her again.  I can imagine that’s for the reasons of not wanting to kill someone he knows, and she did kick his ass in the first fight.  Mikasa has clearly noticed this, and questions Eren’s motives.  There’s no denying the truth now.

Attack on Titan ep23: your enemies reside in your softest, weakest underbelly

This episode starts out mundanely enough.  We’re given a glimpse into Annie’s world as she begins another day with the Military Police.  Here, we quickly see just how  lazy and corrupt the Military Police are as a whole.  The superiors take any and every chance to dump work on their subordinates wile they either screw or around or commit minor crimes.  At this point, my preconceptions could not be more spot-on when it comes to the Military Police.

Attack on Titan ep22: everybody gets an “F”

Well, I hope you guys like failure.  Because there’s a hell of a lot of it in this episode.  Given that this show gives off the strong vibe of a shounen battle manga, I doubt all this failure and loss will be the immediate end of things.  I get the feeling that this battle is going to come back harder and stronger than before.  But for now, drink in the river of tears that is Attack on Titan.

Attack on Titan ep21: trust is overrated and victory is delicious

September 1, 2013 3 comments

I suppose this battle could have gone better, but I can’t see how it could get any worse also. With a lot of dead soldiers and wasted resources, there’s nothing to show for what they’ve done. And now, with all the layers of defense peeled away, there’s nothing standing between the Female Titan and Eren aside from three very good, but very scared and over matched soldiers. And I have to say, for a moment I was impressed, though not fooled. Read more…

Attack on Titan ep20: how much do you want it?

August 26, 2013 1 comment

This show has evolved into something beyond my expectations, but not something beyond what I should have expected. The war on the titans has really turned into a more pitched battle between the Recon Corps and some very special titans. There’s more strategy involved here than in all of the Trost arc, and really shows how the Recon Corps is on another level compared to the rest of the forces we’ve seen so far, and it also displays just how powerful Eren may be.

Attack on Titan ep19: trust in your comrades or your abilities?

August 18, 2013 3 comments

Oh how I hate it when intense action and drama is interrupted, for back story. Though, I’m also a fan of knowledge, and I’ll put up with such a set up if I learn something. Do I actually learn something though? Not quite.

With the female titan bearing down on them with the might of a thousand angry tornadoes, Levi’s squad continues to Read more…
