Episode Focus: Attack on Titan S2 11, Charge

Sorry, let me hold myself a moment.

Just Attack on Titan.

I’ve been somewhat critical of Attack on Titan’s first 10 episodes. Sure, there have been good moments, even good episodes, but on the whole, I’ve felt largely underwhelmed by a second season of a franchise I love and expect so much from.

Episode Focus: Attack on Titan S2 10, Children

It’s getting to that time in the season when we are expecting all of the shows to start ramping up as they hurtle towards their finales.

See how long it’s taken to get near to the bottom of this?!

This expectation presses on no show more so than it does on the second season of Attack on Titan. Four years in the making, the final three to four episodes really needed to do something. With last week’s episode nine firmly dropping the baton (one of my friends aptly described ‘Opening’ as ‘meanwhile in a tree’), episode ten had a lot to deliver – the question is, did it succeed?

Episode Focus: Attack on Titan 7, Close Combat

Episode six gave us possibly the biggest reveal of the entire Attack on Titan franchise to date with the reveal of the identity of both the Colossal and Armoured Titans. Episode seven on the other hand took us back to some of the classic scenes of season one with an awesome titan fight!

Season two has been all about close character development, with an eye for bigger plot points building in the background. It’s hard to say that about episode seven however, as we focused solely on the first fight between Eren and Reiner, in titan forms. We got a couple of flashbacks to the cadet’s training days, but otherwise this focused very much on how Eren was trying to defeat the stronger, more experience Reiner.

Attack on Titan chapter 93

It’s been a little while since I’ve done an Attack on Titan chapter review and thought it would make a nice variation from all the other Attack on Titan content that’s been appearing on this blog. Of course, past this point are colossal (see what I did there, eh?) for the series including, possibly, the rest of season two of the anime.

Attack on Titan chapter 90

It seems as if chapter 90 will be the concluding chapter of the Return to Shiganshina arc as the survey corps finish debriefing with the new government, receive awards in honour of bravery from Krista and, following a extended time skip, travel beyond Wall Maria for the first time since the opening chapters (spoilers for the manga are ahead, if you’re more interested in the second season of the anime, try here instead).

Attack on Titan season 2 release date and new poster!

You may or may not have heard that more details for Attack on Titan season 2 have been released!

Even if you haven’t read anything over the past few days, you probably have seen this new key visual:

Anime only viewers have now joined manga readers in seeing that some of the minor characters from season 1 will be stepping up in season 2; see Reiner and Bertholt on Eren’s left and Krista and Ymir on his left taking significantly more room that either Mikasa or Armin. There’s also an ominous shot of the beast titan looking down on the cast which suggests that he will be very involved in the season. Along with the trailer that landed in late December this means we can probably assume that a good chunk of this season will focus on the Clash of Titan arc that follows on immediately from the Female Titan arc of the manga.

Chapter Reaction: Attack on Titan 77 [SPOILERS]

As a big fan of the anime, I’ve gradually been making my way through the Attack on Titan manga. As those of you who read the manga will know already, there have been some frankly mind blowing revelations as the manga continues on after the end of the anime.

From this point on there will be big spoilers for chapter 77 and the manga post-season 1 anime – you have been warned.
