I have to admit I am a bit confused about the definition of a fighter anime. By fighter do they mean anime which have one on one fights or do they mean anime that have action in general? Nonetheless, for today I’ll be going with the latter definition and talking about an anime that is included in my personal ‘favourite anime of all time’ list and which i love very much. As you must have guessed from the picture, it’s none other than – Attack On Titan.
This anime is hyped for all the right reasons. It usually takes me around a few episodes to get attached to an anime, but in this case, I was hooked to it from the first episode itself. The fast paced, thrilling storyline was able to capture my undivided attention since the beginning. This might as well have been the first time I saw an anime that didn’t get boring even for a second.
The animation and the soundtrack went impeccably well with the apocalyptic theme of the anime and gave it a cinematic effect. All the scenes are outstanding and surprisingly realistic. Even with its fast pace, it never felt too fast or too slow.
The battles are exciting and the action is outstanding. The female titan arc is my favourite arc. The strategies, the fighting and even the deaths add to the brilliance of the anime. It is indeed very enjoyable.
The characters are intriguing and endearing. I love Eren’s unyielding determination, Mikasa’s emotional control, Armin’s critical thinking, Levi’s confidence, Jean’s gumption, Sasha’s appetite, Hange’s eccentricity, Krista’s sweetness and Annie’s courage, to name a few.
It gives us numerous lessons on team work and friendship and endurance. I admit it does gets a bit over-dramatic and unbelievable at parts, but that does make the anime more engaging and unforgettable.
What crimes have we committed to be tortured like this in wait of the second season?
I’m sorry for this post. I’m in total fangirling mode when it comes to AOT. In fact, I’d been looking for an opportunity to unleash this inner SNK fangirl and that may or may not be the reason why I chose this anime for today.
