SFW … Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人 Shingeki no Kyojin)


If you’re going to watch this show, don’t be eating during the first episode as it will unsettle your stomach.  The premise of the show has humanity confined within walls, to protect themselves from giants who eat humans.  It is bleak and hard-hitting, with easily half of the main characters dead by the time the show is through it’s first block of 13 episodes.  Expect a rollercoaster of emotion, with the future extremely uncertain and the stakes so astronomically high at all times that the expectation of failure is almost a given.  After the last episode of season two, I felt the story seemed to have so much more to tell, but so far there has been no continuation.  There have been a few prequel OVAs, but nothing that takes place after the end of the series, which severely disappointed me.
