Synopsis

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titans.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind.

If ejaculating while watching Attack on Titan is considered wrong, I don’t want to be right

Another season, another pile of shit. As delusional anime critics that are blinded by nostalgia reminisce about the ‘Golden Ages’ of anime where everything wasn't centered around kawaii school girls doing cute things done by KyoAni, the latest Gundam series or a generic tsundere romantic comedy that is set in highschool, I couldn't help but agree with them that anime has fallen to a low whilst I rummage through the shows that have assaulted us this upcoming season. However, like finding a piece of corn inside a pile of turd, read more

Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) undoubtedly made it as the top anime of 2013. Hajime Isayama’s creation gained fans across the globe with its thrills, surprising twists, and memorable characters. Compared to other apocalyptic anime, Hajime develops undefeatable and menacing creatures: giant man-eating titans --- overgrown human-like creatures that range in size and ability.

Story (8)

The suspense is incredible and exciting with constant gory scenes of titans brutalizing humans to the fullest degree, whether it is crushing skulls with their massive thumbs or tearing apart the human body. Combat action involves stunning choreography as armed soldiers spin or fly in mid-air with their 3D read more

Recommendations

The setting for both is a medieval world where humans/half humans have to fight against stronger creatures. I think both anime were well executed. Both are also violent.

Revenge, Suffering, Agony and Redemption...

Shingeki no Kyojin has a feeling of FMA Brotherhood in which a kid who lived a peaceful life gets thrown into a dark grim life full of tragedy and agony due to losing someone important to them. However, both main characters refused to move on and dedicated their lives for revenge and redemption.

If you enjoy a full packed action dramatic plot you'll love both of these series.
