Attack on My Mental Stability: Attack On Titan Review


The Attack on Titan Season One Poster.

Whatever goes on in Hajime Isayama’s brain when he works on Attack on Titan may be the closest humanity will ever get to heaven…or to hell.
The most accurate description I can give you is bungee jumping up to heaven, sky diving back to hell, discovering you can for some reason fly back up, and the cycle essentially repeats for eternity. That is, at least, until MAPPA finally decides to release season 4, part 3, half 2.
As a whole, this show has somehow managed to single handedly convince me that maybe life does have meaning, only to violently rip that idea out of me, and perhaps give me minimal depression.
However, I digress. Let us proceed to the more pressing matters.
This story follows the life of Eren, a young boy residing within Wall Maria. At this point in time the world has become overrun with titans who have, unfortunately for humanity, stuck to a human dietary plan. In order to survive, humanity is forced into the confines of three walls. However, not is all as it seems, because when is it truly?
I would explain more, but to give you any more details is to rob you of one of the best experiences you’ll have in your life. So please excuse me, as I further applaud this show, and you (hopefully) develop common sense and maybe even an ounce of logic and proceed to go watch it.
Now, never before have I watched or read a storyline that is so full and exemplary. Having watched every episode that is out thus far and then rewatching it, I have found little hints of what I now knew was going to happen later on. I would say the writer knew what the entire series was going to entail from the very beginning, but at this point I wouldn’t be surprised if he pulled out a pencil in the womb.
More so than this, nothing has ever made me question things more than this show. Question upon question is brought up as you watch, and just when you arrive at one answer, another question comes delicately packaged with it.
Now, to those of you who are ever so intelligently deciding to watch this show, let me leave you with a few tips. First, never in your right mind (or even in your wrong one) decide to search up Attack on Titan until you’re caught up with everything. The spoilers are about as easy to escape as it was to be a woman in the 1800s.
Second, this show is a Japanese anime with dub in English available, but don’t you even dare take that route. The show consumed in the way it was intended to is just magnificent.
As a final remark, I need to once again remind you that Attack On Titan is amazing, just in case the message wasn’t apparent. If you’re ever bored and in need of something to watch, just go watch this show, I assure you, you’ll be hooked.
