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)
