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.

Attack on Titan is a survival action anime that takes place in a post-apocalyptic fantasy world where the humans, that once lived in peace, now face a last stand situation for survival of the entire race. Attack on Titan's strong points are the action, art/animation, and the soundtrack. While I don't consider Attack on Titan to have a lot of great points, the anime doesn't have any weak points either, as it does many elements pretty well, in my opinion. On the surface, Attack on Titan seems nothing more than a survival story of humans vs (insert threat here). However, the story shows us many read more

Oh dear Shingeki no Kyojin, where do I even begin. If you've talked with your friends about anime, then the couple anime that everyone talks about are Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Dragon Ball, and... Shingeki no Kyojin. What's the difference between Shingeki and the rest? Shingeki only has 25 episodes so far yet it's on par in popularity with the other super long, Americanized anime. Why is it popular? Well that's simply because it's stunningly amazing. Those people that call Shingeki no Kyojin "overrated" may not have the same taste as me, and that's perfectly fine, but in my honest opinion, Shingeki no Kyojin is read more

Recommendations

Humans are all fighting for survival or face extinction, the rich and powerful ruled for either the good of everyone or a greed for power. 'Black Bullet' demonstrates that good and bad are not very different depending on how you perceive it.

'Shingeki no Kyojin' has a darker history as the people have lived under fear for a longer period of time and any beings that are different from them have to be destroyed. Kill or be killed is a way to describe the ways of life of the people. Freedom of action is not permitted to the greatest of pleasure but just like 'Black Bullet', it proves that good and evil are just lines drawn to preserve order and peace.
Pain and sorrow are felt in both series however they are not on the same caliber. Fighting for a better future, teamwork, sacrifice are all shallow similarities.'Claymore' has a wide range of characters with dark past which you will feel sorry for whether they are friend or foe, it shows you the hardship of characters who only fight for themselves but in time come to terms with close friendship thus fight for one and another.

'Shingeki no Kyojin' excels in its epic twists and turns where you cannot trust anyone even in your own team. You will constantly be wondering about the next death or who the real enemy is and that makes this series very amazing to watch.
