Do you prefer discovering more about the world of Attack on Titan, and getting more secrets revealed?
- Season 3 meets your expectations.
Are you more into action and fighting?

- This season gives you quite the information and will let you feel how everyone's character is gonna develop in a manner you might've never expected!
Following up previous season, the story progresses with new surprising issues that face Eren and his companions.
This time, the problem is very different. It urges each character to become a new person in heart and act.
As story progresses, we also get to face new issues regarding the titans problem and the truth behind this world of Attack on Titan!
Without spoiling anything, the story advances to a major new level in this season.
The art of the new opening was so colorful, beautiful and clean. It fits the emotions and the feels throughout this season.
The art of the episodes is absolutely stunning! From the characters and each single detail of them, to the backgrounds, the guns, the royal palace, the walls, the people and everything else!
The drawing style makes everything stands out, from the eyes details to the hair style and color. Though it's nothing new in Attack on Titan to be noticed, but this time it's literally stunning and glowing!
Wit Studio is killing it as usual, but this time it has notably improved!
ODM gears chasing scenes, shooting, killing, blood shedding, body uncontrollable movement at dying moments, eyes and facial expressions.. etc.
What must be mentioned here is the thrilling breathtaking animation of fighting and chasing scenes!
Something extreamely beyond expectations.
What's also amazing about the animation is the details! Almost everything in the screen is animated and in a perfect way! It feels alive, if you get what I mean.
New ost soundtracks, and new completely different opening theme.
Attack on Titan is known for its epic soundtracks and we indeed got new epic music, besides new emotional tone!
There's also new tone of music that I would call "thrilling music"!
Furthermore, we got new SFX sound effects that serve the new introduced things. Well, it gives you eargasms during relative scenes!
Voice acting is on point as usual. Emotions of anger, sadness, anxiety and all the feelings the characters experience because of the surprising issues they haven't faced before, all of that is reflected in the voice acting. One word could describe it: it's passionate!
Get ready for major character development that never happened in Attack on Titan!
Season 3 focuses a lot on character development that you will feel it, you will see the characters become new!
What's amazing here is that character development perfectly serves story progression, and story progression suits character development very well too!
In other words, it's not rushed! It's not done without a need! It's not done just to make the characters become different!
No, it's done to serve the story, It's necessary!
What's enjoyment? Why do you enjoy Attack on Titan?
- Because, it has exciting fighting scenes?
Well, this season entertain you with that quite the entertainment. In fact, at some point you will not get a break!
- To get more secrets revealed?
You will not just get some answers, but your mind will be blown away multiple times!
I'd recommend that you start taking notes since you'll not be able to handle all the information you'll get.
It's exciting, hype, epic, emotional, and very very entertaining!
Each single episode is going to entertain you and give your mind and heart what they deserve of joy and good time.
(PS: I’m not good in writing reviews and I edited this one during my online physics lesson. So pardon me if my review isn't good enough lol)
"Attack on Titan" is a well-known franchise that has acquired its fame from the unique atmosphere, tragedy deaths and hype. And now we have the third season of this astonishing franchise.
The 3rd season starts on fire with the “Uprising Arc”, which alter the plan of killing Titans into killing Humans. The plot of this sequel (or Arc) mostly focuses on politics and corruption. Some people would dislike this, since it’s called “Attack on Titan” not
“Attack on Human”. However, in my opinion I appreciate the expansion of the world’s state and the minor details to the audiences. We got to know more about Inner life inside the walls unlike the previous seasons. It’s like world building. In addition, this season metaphorically focuses the light on the political issues and how the dirty work is done behind the curtains, imposing the authority on those who are weak. However, if the dirty play of the government became vivid to the public & exceeded specific boundaries. Some people will try to unite and undergo a coup on this government. Which are – in Attack on Titan - the survey crops and the garrison, but in their cases, they won’t do it in the normal way, it’s basically like gambling. Which highlights the intense and the importance of tactics that these people will use. Also there’re many plot twists that are reveled about Titan’s abilities throughout this season, beside flashbacks about the characters like Levi, Historia, Erwin etc …
*Holds the mic* LEVI IS BACK! TO ALL THE FANGIRLS, TO ALL THE FUJOSHIS, TO ALL THOSE WHO LOVE BADASS GUYS, AGAIN I REPEAT, LEVI IS BACK!! *drops the mic* Levi is back to this season after getting rest in the previous season, he showed us again how badass can he be throughout only few episodes. Alongside a new badass character that appears this season, which is Kenny. This old-man has some splendid skills like Levi but by using guns instead of swords. We get to know that Kenny is somehow related to Levi’s past & origin, as this season focuses mostly on Levi , Historia and Eren. We get to know more about our lil Historia , unravelling her mysterious past and her true identity. We get to see another new character that had an amazing development throughout these few episodes only, which is Flegel , changing from a dependable guy to a real merchant who follows his sense of the good profit as his father taught him. The rest of the characters are the same till now nothing new about them, except that Armin had more “courage” than Jean and stained his hand with a human’s blood to save a fellow, which can be highlighted as a minor character development for Armin.
Hiroyuki Sawano, enough said. (Despite that calm OP that kills the hype).
Now , WiT Studio never disappoint us with the “unlimited budget works” of making a top-tier animated scene. Honestly nothing gave me goosebumps in this year more than the scene when Levi was trying to escape from Kenny and his soldiers. The choreography of Levi’s fast and precise movements is something that must be really appreciated. Despite that there’s no titans in this arc, doesn’t mean that we won’t see epic animation at all. Also, the animation of the atmosphere of this anime, like the buildings, sky etc ... makes me drown in the beauty of this world as if it’s a real world. Every detail in this sequel is significantly important to help the audiences to feel the realism of the world of Attack on Titan, alongside the drawing of the characters, that in my opinion one of the best drawings ever, it’s common in Japan to ignore the “nose” & other details while drawing the characters, as it’s easier and some people think it’s cuter. However, in Attack on titan, I feel that the characters can be represented as real humans. The drawing of different sizes of noses, eye borrows etc … besides drawing the side characters that appear for few seconds as if they are main characters. Unravelling the fact that WiT Studio really admires making a real world that involves the audiences in it & that the animators do their work with a passion.
If you can accept that “Attack on Titan” isn’t only about slaying Titans, then I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy this season. Till now there isn’t any boring episode, they’re all entertaining despite if there’s no action scene or just tension and suspense. Maybe there’re many flashbacks and dialogues yet these are so necessary to make us understand much better.
In my opinion, the start of this sequel is great so far. I’m not sure yet if this will be 2-cour sequel or no but I’m pretty sure that this season going to be a big turning point for the main story and the consequences that the characters will have to face. The pace in this season isn’t so fast yet not slow, I think it was the same in the previous seasons too. However, if you watch Attack on titan just for “Slaying Titans”, then I don’t think you’ll like this sequel. If you want “Action X Action” all the time, then you won’t like this one too. If you are a manga reader who worships the idea of “The anime must be adapted as the manga” then you won’t like this one. However, if you love mentioning the politics in Animes besides focusing on characters, then you might like this one.
ALSO, DON’T FORGET SASAGYOOO !!!
This anime was my first show (when I realized what exactly is anime) and I will be honest: (about season 3).
OP intro 8/10- I did not expect anything like this but... but you know? it touched my soul and it more looks like Attack on slice of life not TITAN :D.
Story 9/10- unexpectedly moments and it will be interesting what will happen next? I know and I/we saw that the author somehow removed some backstories like whats wrong with Eren's titan form? and other thinks but I am satisfied with everything atm.
Art 9/10- in the previous seasons was much better but it does not interfere
watching.... I like it anyway.
Sound 9/10- at this moment no new soundtracks, but sounds from guns/swords/ambiance is cool I liked, and I hope Sawano Hiroyuki will bring us some new masterpiece osts/soundtracks in future episodes.
Character 10/10- almost all were behaving like IRL people there's no exaggeration, this is just as I see it.
Enjoyment 10/10- ten by ten means ADDICTION when episode comes out prepare yourself! (meals,drinks).
Overall 10/10- My masterpiece always will be outstanding I hope in the future it will not change to disappointment.
After a little bit more than a year of wait fan favorite Attack on Titan is back with it's 3rd season and as always we are eager to see what's in store for us this time.
It continunes few days after where we left off last season and it focuses more on political drama and dilemmas inside the walls. This season gets straight to the point and introduces new villain named Kenny that turns out to be somehow related to Levi. There are many parties trying to get Eren and Historia. For what reason? It is yet to be reveald. Mystery we all feel in
love with is still there and there are even more questions, but don't let that distract you from the fact that this season ,even tho is only few episodes in, already has some major reveals in it. Pacing is amazing and i wasn't bored for a moment while watching. Things are only getting more interesting when Erwin reveals how he's planning to ovethrow the governmant without using the force. This season has a very refreshing and different plot compared to previous ones as we can see from the lack of titans and focuse on the issues inside the walls rather than beyond. However it's still as, if not more interesting than before. There is world buidling,mystery,back stabbing and some major questions answered which there is hopfully more to come.
As we can see characters in this season look a little bit different or older which some might not like but i do personally. It's a fresh change. They look closer to their manga designes. Some might notice that they removed those thick black lines around characters faces which made AOT art stand out even more. Don't get me wrong, it still does but that was something that was missing which kept me from giving it 10/10.
Animation is brilliant for this season (it's Attack on Titan after all :D) and like every season it only got better. It's almost flawless 6 episodes in. That levi ODM action sequence is some of the best animation i have seen in anime. Perfect combination between 3D background and 2D animation along with masterfull camera movement made this scene look like a movie. It was incredible! While i was watching levi maneuvering trough the city i felt like i was the part of the scene. Levi grappling on the bar and pulling himself towards it made me feel like i was pulled with him. There is even one frame where levi is facing the wall and you can see his reflection in the window. Just goes to show how much detail and time was put in to this scene. After i done some research i found out that it took the animator of this scene 1 whole month to complete it. Just that one scene alone. All props to Arifumi Imai. Great job. Hopfully it keeps this quality because this season is said to be 24 episodes long.
I mean, is there anything to say? AoT is notorious for it's amazing OST and sound quality. Voice actors are great as always and the sound that stand out to me the most was the sound of falling shell from kenny on the roof in ep.1. It was just so satisfying :D. And again mad props to Hiroyuki Sawano (the composer) for the epic and emotional music.
What i like about AoT characters is the fact that they interact so naturally and nothing from their conversation seems forced which is immediately showcased in the very first scene in ep. 1. That cabin scene where jean and eren argue,sasha tries to steal bread, mikasa still does work even tho she's injured and armin cares for her deeply. And of course Levi the clean freak comes in at the end :p They are such fun and lively characters.
This season already had some major development for our cast. We got to see Erwin's and Hisotira's backstories which also delved deeper in their characters motives. Both backstories were heartbreaking and made me care a lot more for them. Hisotira is slowly taking of her "Christa Lenz" facade (is that how you say it? lol) and Erwin is proving again and again why everyone loves him and would follow him to death. His childhood story is very similar to how our society and governmant wokrs today which is very scary. And we all need to remember that isayama is criticizing this type of government and society with these topics. Instead of just walking of Erwin comes back to Dimo Rivees's wife and comforts her saying he'll avange him. Erwin is charismatic,great leader, intellignet and someone that you just want to follow. Since the young age he was corious and as he call himself a "gambler". He is someone that would give everything for the humanity. Or is he? I think there is a lot more to his character. Hange got some development too. The way she gathered the information about nick's murder is amazing. After all she is one of the most intelligent characters in this show. She is someone that does what she promises, and she did. She tortured the guy that tortured her friend but after that she shows her other side. She shows human compassion. She repeats how she's starting to feel sorry for them and kicks the table which showcases her frustation and that she actually doesn't like what she has to do. Yeah i know it's hard to believe :D she was always crazy lol. Her weird love for titans makes her character all more interesting and multidimensional. Eren is maturing and seems a lot more chill this season but unfortunately he is kiddnaped again :( Poor guy he just can't catch a break. In ep.1 he helps historia to overcome here pain and shows again just how honest he is by telling her "I like you more this way, just a stupidly normal honest girl". Also hugeee development for armin. To think that he would be capable of killing a human.. this will deffinitely have a huge impact on his character in the future. The way he selfreflects and his philosohpical speach about morals is great, it really makes you think. He kinda has a point too. He shows one more time how mentally strong he is even tho he lacks physicial strength. This time is just on another level. Now lets talk about our new villain. KENYYYYYYYYYYY. I love this guy lol. The way he roasts and insults levi and the cowboy vibe he gives. I love it. He immediately showcases that he is not a joke by blowing nifa's head off just like that. He also seems very mysterious. The way he treats levi is almost as if he looks down upon him. Speaking of Levi here is what i think: That chase scene where he's running away from kenny is not just a great action sequence it also represents Levi running from his past. Kenny=His past. Running from kenny or his past. This arc is also big development and challange for him now that he has to act as a leader/commander because erwin is absent or busy. There was also some smaller developments for connie (motivating himself to take on the beast titan),jean (struggling to remain human which almost costs him life, also selfreflecting), sanes (showing how he didn't want to do the things that he has done and over the time he just got used to it, also he was kinda easy to symphatise with too and his devotion to king is may be morally wrong but aslo admirable, the way he feels destroyed after finding out that he was actually the one that betrayed the king is also worth mentioning), flegel (stepping up becoming a boss saying how he'll protect the people of his city), zachary (showcasing that he cares more about himself rather than humanity and how he always hated the governmant because they looked up on everyone).
I never enjoyed AoT more. It's great.This season has perfect balance between story telling, character development and action.
It's just getting better and better and hopfully there is more to come :) (P.S. my english is not perfect, hope you can understand :D)
Enjoying shows that are so obviously bad as Shingeki no Kyojin is, is my specialty. The first season was nothing less than great entertainment for myself. Even today, it is the single most fun show I have watched ironically. It's rare that show which is close to unwatchable in terms of quality can be so highly entertaining as it was.
But it's getting so old and boring now.
Everything from door knobs to walls have now turned into titan's buttholes. The gore lost its entertainment value already a season ago. Now, our supposedly shocking twists and sudden, unpredictable events aren't really thrown at the viewers face
anymore, rather spit on it. What used to be ridiculous and over the top entertainment, now seems to be not more than repetition of the same in more idiotic ways. Created not in the names of the story nor characters, but to make the series more lengthy because the author is clearly out of ideas.
The story is not much more than nonsense.
The main content is practically a clone of Vinland Saga's Farmland arc during which great many followers stopped reading the series for the reason that it became boring beyond comprehension. Same applies here. The series is currently so content lacking that the focus in on bunch of people cleaning the house and pealing potatoes because they have nothing better to do. When something finally starts happening, it's of course the kidnapping cliche because that's the single worst cliche that is not memory-loss. Pretty great stuff if not taken seriously. Another great example is "Main Character-kun will die if we don't hurry," Like really, how young does person need to be to even consider this an option in this series where plot-armors are more obvious than in Game of Thrones? Nothing even remotely believable ever happens, and it's too common to be fun ironically anymore.
Our writing also relies on newly asspulled oneliners such as Eren's "I always wanted to go beyond the ocean." Which isn't true because he didn't "always" even know oceans exist. Why am I complaining over such a minor thing you ask? Well why did the author insert such a line here if it is clearly not true, accurate nor loyal to Eren's character or this works universe? Possibly because he is Tite Kubo's (the author of Bleach) long lost brother and simply doesn't give a damn about what he writes. Now to wait for the epic twist where the ocean itself is also a titan because at least then, this could be called ironically entertaining once again. Make it happen, boy.
The side characters are at least worth of something.
Whenever our main squad gets called subhumen or pseudo-soldiers, I agree whole-heartedly. The opposing party did nothing wrong when looking down on our plebeian children at arms. The supposedly political side is great as ever. People with power and might are presented to be one dimensional baddies who -conveniently- are behind all the bad things that ever happen. It's really fun. Whenever any side character speaks, it's an obvious attempt to provoke the viewers to hold some feelings of anger because the world is so morally wrong and fucked up, apparently. Everyone is essentially, of course, nothing but an another number in the overall body count... or titan count because taking repetitiveness to another level will at least count as one thing this series has achieved. To be frank, there was more variety in Bleach. Way more.
The hideous animation really serves the series.
Especially character movements mainly remind me of badly photoshopped Michael Cera memes or photobombing animals. Dudes just scroll over the screen like they are trolling the camera. It's really weird and also the main reason why I have been able enjoy (read: laugh during) this season at all. The cowboy soldiers are also highly entertaining. Mainly because they reminds me of Megalo Box's tool assisted boxing, only here it is more like tool assisted shooting. All fights are otherwise practically the same messiness that contains copy-pasted action and people imitating spiderman.
Our new opening song is also hideous. S01 had an op that fits perfectly with everything and anything. This op doesn't fit here nor anywhere else. I really wish they had just used Smooth Criminal by Michael Jackson since half the time, our characters are already wondering if Annie is okay.
As a conclusion, if you liked S01 but not S02, you will probably not like this one either. If you liked S02 as well, you will most likely still like this 3rd season and also everything else that has ever been made because things like bad anime don't clearly exist in this realm.
I know what you're thinking. This will be another cliche anime. It's just about killing these weird titans. It's just another "edgy, shock value" show with no depth. I'm here to tell you...this show is deeper than what it seems. I discovered this anime a year ago. One boring night i decided to give it a try and I binged the first 9 episodes. But why was I so in to it?
The surprises. The complexity. The mysteries. The emotions. The music. The animation/art. The lore. The tone. The maturity. The execution. The struggles. It all caught me off guard. What ended up happening was me
discovering my favorite series in any genre, and the first anime to ever make me pick up the manga (and my oh my will the end of Season 3 & 4 be amazing, and I guarantee it will shoot it up to one of the all time great animes).
It's rare that I discover a show that is unpredictable. It's rare that I discover a show that actually makes me feel. I see criticisms about the story only being about killing titans...that the characters are shallow...that there's no substance...and I truly have to question if we're watching the same show. There are mysteries established from the very first scene. Mysteries that are paid off WONDERFULLY later in the story. There are characters that appear to only be background characters, who end up having an ENORMOUS impact on the story. There are themes and life lessons sprinkled throughout these absurd situations. While the critics only see fighting titans, I see the character development & inner conflicts that arise during these situations. All of this is accomplished without forced humor, over-exaggerated artwork, and childish antics. Isayama successfully casts aside the usual tropes, even killing important characters (which actually makes me fear for the lives of other characters). He ignores the "friendship will win" tropes. The "I'm passionate to beat him" tropes. Actually, all these situations are presented just to give you the harsh reality that life doesn't always work out that way. This is an amazing experience, and as a manga reader, I promise y'all are in for a ride. Another special shoutout to the music, which is truly an amazing part of the show.
This show gets a lot of haters. Understandably, like anything else, not everyone will like it. But there's plenty of people who hate on it just cause of its popularity. Or label the writer insane things because they didn't actually read the context of the story. DONT FALL FOR THEM. Be your own judge, notice every small detail of the show. If you're looking for something deep, mature, and refreshing...this show is for you.
I'm so happy this turned out well. Season 3 is exactly what SnK should be.
I didn't think things would necessarily turn out this way, either. In my humble opinion, SnK season TWO was a mess. During the first 6 episodes, the plot, pacing, etc. was completely off and it completely killed the show for me. I wrote a long review about it before but I don't wanna spend too much time talking about SnK s2 when this is about season 3. As season 2 approached the ending, however, it seemed the writing was coming back and I began to enjoy it like I enjoyed
Now the writing is in full force, and everything seems to shine. Where should I begin?
Essentially, all of our characters are set up at this point so there's no time wasted with long backstories or explanations. Whenever a backstory does come up, it's quick and does NOT subtract from the plot at all. During season 2 they kinda threw in flashbacks at random, even during critical, suspenseful moments, and it killed the immersion. If that was something you were worrying about -- you won't see that here. The story flows great.
The characters are back and better than ever, too. During season 2 we really missed Levi in all his fighting greatness, but he really shares center stage this season. He's cool, collected, and intelligent -- even more than he was in season 1. He's back to fighting anything willing to stand in the way of his mission, and he's great at it. The show plays on the strengths and personalities of its characters and it really shows. Even though a lot of the season so far is centering around the side characters -- they don't disappoint at all. Not to mention everything is more impactful now that we've spent 2 seasons already with these people. I was looking forward to every moment their plans advanced or fell flat. Even the antagonists are cool. It's annoying to watch a show where the villains are dumb but the heroes always have everything figured out. You don't have to worry about that in SnK s3. There villains seem to be just as capable as the heroes, so you don't know what's going to happen.
I'd say the story itself, so far, is much better than season 1 and season 2. While I enjoyed season 1 a lot, quite a few people complained about the lack of plot progression but I don't think that would be a fair complaint for season 3. During this season we've learned much more about the world, and we have a lot more factions/actors furthering their goals. The pacing is not too fast, and it's not too slow either. The story kept me on edge, with twists and turns that all flow together. I looked forward to each new episode even though the story kept me completely satisfied. What I mean by that is -- I was comfortable stopping at any episode, because I had been thoroughly entertained and I had gotten a lot with each episode. Some shows bore you with a dull episode and then a cliffhanger at the end -- not this one.
There isn't too much that I can say because I'm only 5 episodes in but I'm just really enjoying myself and wanted to share. Lol.
As for the art, it's as good as ever. I'm looking forward to seeing the animation during big battles that will come up in the future.
The sound is good too, as it usually is. I feel like we haven't gotten too much of the OST yet so it's unfair to really judge it at this point. While I didn't care for the OP much at first, I have to admit it sounds much better using a quality headset in comparison to the bad speakers I played it on the first time. It isn't my favorite OP, but it's fine IMO.
Overall, my ratings would go like this:
The reason why I handed out so many 9's is because it's so early in the season so I can't be SURE of any perfection yet, but I can guarantee that I've been enjoying the HECK out of it so far. On the course it's going, I'm sure to at least keep those ratings -- or maybe I'll think it's worth something higher. Hard to say.
RIP I had to reupload this review cause I "didn't watch 6 episodes" before
The third installment to the series excluding the OVAs and it continues getting better by the second. First let me state that AoT is what got me into the anime medium in the first place which may lead to my opinion being biased a little bit, but I probably won’t need to exaggerate on its quality for it already speaks for itself.
Second, this season was being criticized by many manga readers even before its release for it takes a different directive being mostly about the political situation within the walls and fights among humans themselves instead of against naked titans. This is honestly upsetting because
of how presumptuous it is and from what I’ve seen so far I can assure you that the thrill remains the same as you’re used to if not better along with the intriguing action any fan of the series would be pleased with.
As for the titans, even if there isn’t much titan action, because most of what seemed confusing in previous seasons is explained here we will have enough titans in the flashbacks all through. So, if you’ve seen unjustified hate befall this anime, don’t let this bum you out. Watch the PV and feast your eyes upon the action then give the first four, no, first two episodes a try and you will know what I mean.
Lastly before I start actually reviewing anything, I just want to state how glad I am to review one of my first favorite series as it airs since it means a lot to me and my career as an anime fan.
Now to the juicy part
We continue from where we left off last season. If you took my advice and watched the PV you would know this season mostly follows Levi and his squad and it starts from there. The scouts have fallen drastically and the political situation just keeps pressuring them more and more that it borderlines abusing them. And so, this season begins with how the scouts face such abuse and try to survive this cruel reality. However, this time their fight is inside the walls and their enemies are fellow human beings.
Despite being so early in the season, so much has already happened and the pace is just what I would expect of this series. Almost certainly this season will be 24 episodes, but as of yet MAL hasn’t updated it for some reason. In either case, we can expect it to have two arcs so if I find anything noteworthy in the second arc or a change of quality I will update this review.
I have mentioned a lot of hate which this anime has received justified by drawbacks found in the manga. However, the creator of AoT has already announced and I quote “Hopefully, now that season 3 is being made, I’ll have the chance to wipe away that regret and replace it with something I’m proud of.” So in case you were critical of certain weaknesses you have found in the manga, you have something to look forward to this season.
Since starting AoT, I have always been astonished by its art ever since the first episode when I got those goosebumps. Art is certainly a major strength of this series and I was afraid it would have fallen out of touch before starting this season. You can imagine my joy when I found out the art is still as beautiful as ever and has actually been polished a step further. The animation is breathtaking and the atmosphere is as bloody as ever with a tiny gap that lets in rays of happiness reflecting in the cast’s tears.
Here is a small fact about me, I am a gore maniac. Thus, seeing the bloodshed, cut skin and ripped out intestines is of outmost importance to my gore-loving self. Luckily enough, AoT doesn’t fall behind in its beautiful display of the aforementioned and, as a matter of fact, this season might be the best so far if you oddly enough share my same interests. Since the titans evaporate after being killed we don’t get a fair display of carnage, but this season seems to shine best in that regard. After so few episodes we have witnessed various colors of torture up to the number of episodes so far, this review is as of episode 6, which should be enough to please you if you are in it for the dark plot.
The most notable thing here is that so far we didn’t have as many screams from Eren as we’ve had in previous seasons. Of course, that is to be expected given this is a more serious arc about political conflicts and struggle for power. The OST is befits the show with the OP and ED being best described as fun while the music during the show goes well with the action providing an ecstasy for any action fan.
I don’t know about you, but Levi is one of my favorites in the series right after Hange and luckily all of the scouts have been getting an adequate amount of character development from the very beginning. We get to see them all from a new perspective because of the new enemy they are facing and how each of them is constantly changing be it for the better or the worse. I have to say, I’m enjoying Levi being a lead for this part and can affirm that if you like Levi, then you are in for a treat.
This series certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you are among the lucky ones who enjoyed the first two seasons, then shut your ears to all the hate you’ve been hearing and take my word for you will definitely enjoy this season just as much if not more than the previous ones. If you happen to be skeptical of the theme of politics hindering your dose of tantalizing action, I can tell you that the action is more than enough and more amazing than words can describe. The style we are used to is here and is polished up sharper than we have ever seen. I have been having a blast so far this season and I am sure any fan of AoT would say the same.
AHHH! Though how amazing Shingeki no Kyojin season 1 and 2 are the story is taking a different path. I'm sure we all loved the humans vs. titans but season 3 introduces us to humans vs humans.
Titans aren't the main focus yet the story anymore, the main plot for this season is focussed on governmental and politic issues, we get to explore the world inside the walls. We adventure and see more into how everything is organised inside the walls and what keeps everything at peace. The world of Shinkegi no Kyojin is changing and as the viewers of this show we get
to enjoy the transitions between each season and the story in general. This season also goes into depth about the humans that can turn into titans and the different types of titans, which also allows us to understand the plot more. DOESN'T THAT JUST INTEREST YOU FURTHER??
There's a setting underground where there is a crystallised cave, the colors and art was well drawn, as for the colors is was simply well done.
The new intro is cute and simple, there isn't much but showing the characters in different ages.
The art style is simple and normal, the animators don't go berserk with how the characters look and the colours, this keeps it nice and clean without going overboard with the art.
I don't particularly take much notice with sounds as long as it has background music, someone talking and bang bang.
What definitely caught my eye was the intro, the music is calm and soothing and it goes really well with the animation.
The sound affects are on point and the voice actors suit with what they're saying and the tone they're saying it in.
Levi best character.
This new season explains the backstory between a few characters. Character development is most likely something we'll see throughout and, the way the creator explained the characters in the few episodes that I've watched, everything seems to be going well as it fits perfectly into the plot. Eren and the others experience new problems and that impacts their attitude, creating bigger emotions that fit really well into the whole story. Can't wait to see other character backstories develop! Our main characters are ready to face the problems that lie ahead of them!!
After watching the first episode of the new story to season 3 of Shingeki no Kyojin just made me eager for spoilers, it drove me to the point of reading the manga which I don't do much. Screw the titans, humans have superiority?! The fact that Shingeki no Koyjin isn't only about titans and that there's much more going on inside the walls captivates many Shingeki no Kyojin fans (though there are those stingy human vs. titan retards jk lol). I loved every bit of the first seasons and hoping this one will be greater (I know it will be :D).
There are many haters, I don't see why?? This is going to be an amazing season that I know I'll love to the very end. This anime just gets better and better!!!!!!! A lot of the anime this year that has gotten another season, haven't really been doing that well, but everything so far is essential to the main plot and is bringing a new light to many things about this show. I really do love it!
Season 2 was alright, but now it´s starting to become pretty goddamn average, and this is coming from someone who loved season 1, I even rewatched it several times... I feel that season 3 builds up to a climax but then just says fuck it, and goes back to where they began. It looks like a really bad version of Christopher Vogler´s narrative structure known as "The Hero´s Journey". I feel that the character development is weak as well, Historia just suddenly decides to switch sides without any "real" reason to do so. Yea sure, she has issues when it comes to a parental figures,
but how the fuck can someone be convinced to eat a person which was your former ally? The whole structure of the story feels weak, they force the characters "tragic" backgrounds on the audience without any chance to let us make up our own thoughts about them. I guess you could say, it´s too fleshed out. The creators leave no room for imagination imo...
This is a preliminary review and I have no idea what I'm going to do with this review once the series ends (erase everything I wrote here and update it or just edit it?)
SnK has its pace sped up compared to the manga according to the author, and right well did they make this decision! Its pace is perfect - nothing is tedious; I couldn't tell that some parts of the manga for this current arc was written while its author was sick. Maybe one factor that did make it obvious the author was sick was the lack of filling plotholes once or twice.
else is there to talk about season 3? If you're reading this, you've probably watched season 2 and 1, no? Well, Wit studios didn't do any worse than the previous seasons.
So far SnK is entertaining me because lots of secrets about humanity is becoming revealed, the Scouts are making a huge impact than ever before in impacting human history, and solving the mystery of Eren's key is getting closer.
I never liked SnK's lack of love for its characters! Please have some pity for the characters! They are all dying like bugs! They are human beings - stop killing people. SnK keeps making a depressing atmosphere where there seems to be no hope for the future of humanity unless a brilliant French Revolution is instigated! Nothing about the French Revolution is positive, and it's just dark, just like this anime is.
Another thing I love about SnK, though, is that I can connect to the characters in that I, too, am also trapped behind walls, and desire a French Revolution for the future of humanity. The adrenaline this show gives me is amazing and it kept me going when I was working out!
Season 1 of Attack on Titan didn't really impress me. The story seemed lacking, and the little story that it did tell did not make me optimistic. (I am not a reader of the manga.)
Season 2 was actually really good and, wow, season 3 is amazing. The story is fast paced, and the anime clearly has the budget and effort to back up its storytelling. It's thrilling around every corner. Every episode is solid, having either brilliantly animated action or interesting plot reveal. (Sometimes an episode has both.)
I'd say the dialogue is a little cringe-inducing and sometimes it relies on cheaper
techniques to move the plot along, but I find that these hardly detracted from enjoyment. (Eren's crying after being unchained was not a quality scene at all, but I don't mind it too much.)
Story / Characters 8/10 - well, its 1:1 manga adaptation and the story only gets better as we move on. Its one of the very few currently airing series that I can watch without constant facepalms (like Steins Gate 0 or Boruto) and cant wait for the next episode even if I know exactly what will happen.
Art / Animation 9/10 - well, not much to say here. Its joy to watch and one can pray other series (cough, DBS, cough) were looking THAT good.
Sound 7/10 - overall soundtrack is good and keep up with visual side, however openning is dull compared to amazing high
energy ones from 1st and 2nd season. It's a dark, brutal series with tons of fast paced action, not a slice of life.
Overall 8/10 - one of the best shounens in decades, which I can safely recommend everyone. Captivating plot, great characters, beautiful art - jsut watch it!
I love this show and always will so I am a bit biased but I feel most people can enjoy this show and this season. The action is always entertaining, music is always hype, animation is always amazing besides maybe a facial expression every now and then, same old characters that I love plus development for them and new ones, and I like that we are getting more knowledge about the world and titans finally plus some rebelling against the government stuff which is cool. It differs a bit from the manga so far as the creator wanted to change some things and if
you are a anime only and even have read the manga its still great and the changes don't take away from anything unless you want everything from the manga to be in the anime (which is never gonna happen for any anime really because of budget and just not being all that important really) but even if you are that nit picky its still a great show and to me its one of my favorites.
