This is what I get for jumping on the bandwagon late. No, scratch that. It’s more like I watched the bandwagon zoom past, went the opposite direction, jumped into a well, sat inside it for a few months, and then poked my head out as soon as I realized I’d seen a bandwagon in the first place.
Some months back, my brother was asking me if Attack on Titan was any good, seeing as how he hadn’t watched an episode of Naruto in two years and wanted to get back into the anime fold. I told him that -- as far as I knew -- reactions were mixed; some people say it’s amazing, and others think it’s overrated (or just not very good). I hadn’t seen it for myself, but when my bro found out that it was on Netflix -- thanks to Funimation, apparently -- he proposed that we watch it together. How’d it go? Well, I’ll just say this: we had multi-hour marathon sessions to blast through all twenty-five episodes of the first season over the course of a few days. And we were both chanting “just one more episode”.
So yeah. Attack on Titan? It’s pretty friggin’ good. But now there’s a problem: I’m gonna have a hell of a time getting back into The Walking Dead -- because everything it does, Attack on Titan does better.
But that should be a given; seriously, have you heard the theme song?
Oh, right. SPOILERS INCOMING for BOTH shows. I almost forgot, because I’m so excited to be able to embed the theme song after the jump. Also, have you seen some of the mashups? I’m personally a fan of Attack on Ramsay, for obvious reasons. Man, I want 3D Maneuver Gear challenges in the next season of Hell’s Kitchen.
