A Review of ‘Attack on Titan’ (2013) Written in the Format of ‘Attack On Titan’ (2013)

This is my overly-indulgent, somewhat-pretentious review of ‘Attack on Titan’, the anime adaptation of the manga by the same name. There are lots of things to like about the series, from the wonderful visuals to the over-the-top action scenes, the epic plot twists and the pervasive sense of dread and inescapable defeat. An anime is an animation produced in Japan in a characteristically colourful style, with vibrant characters and fantastical themes.
