*This review holds minor spoilers for season two of Attack on Titan*
The faith of humanity lies in their incapable hands. It will take time, but perhaps they could find a way to save at least half of the population. “Attack on Titan” is a dramatic anime series, the manga and the anime are both written by Hajime Isayama.
The story wraps around humans trapped behind walls while on the other side are massive, bare humanoids called titans. Humanity lived peacefully until the colossal titan broke the gate that allows people in and out of the wall. This blossomed a sudden need for the 104th cadet corps.
The soldiers are grouped into three different sections, and the story follows the section known as the Scout Regiment. The Scout Regiment is a group of soldiers that explore behind the wall while killing any titans that come close to the town, trying to keep humanity safe from these beasts. In episode five, season two of the television show we are revealed to who the armored titan and the colossal titan are.
The voices for the Japanese subbed episode are flawless. They hold so much emotion, the voices coming off almost eerie whenever put into consideration of what is happening. I, personally, love the characters Bertholdt Hoover and Reiner Braun. These are character many do not focus on, and the compassion they show in this episode makes me drop my stomach and my heart pound in anticipation. The episode filled me with anxiety and made me gasp in protest every time it went to commercial. Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert is where the story mostly focuses so the fact that we get to see more point of views other than them.
The episode shows the development of not only Reiner and Bertholdt, but evolves more of Ymir and Krista Lenz’s plotline. The plot line and unique detail for each supporting character, not just focusing on the three. Of course, do not get I love the main three. But the duration of season one was completely devoted to them and the other cadets. In season two, we learn much more saddening backstories that would definitely not have been proven in the three characters alone.
I did not find any mistakes and personally loved every second. The violent atmosphere is settled with heartbreak and small sprinkles of humor. After watching this season, who wouldn’t want to see more?
