Attack on Titan
Waiting for a new episode of Attack on Titan every week is killing me! Every episode seems like it ends in a cliff hanger. I watched the first fourteen all at once and now I have to wait each week. It's worth the wait though. If you're not watching this one, you should!
This anime is pretty near perfect so far. It is SO fast-paced! I love that the most. A lot of action and so much tension. I've never seen an atmosphere quite like this in an anime before. There is such desperation and barely any will to win against the Titans. All of the characters are good. My favorite is probably Mikasa, the female lead. I don't think I've ever liked a female character the best in an anime except maybe Kagome from Inuyasha.
The first couple of episodes are kind of hard to get into admittedly. I tried to watch it when it first aired and I dropped it. It just didn't seem interesting. But, after so much praise I tried it again. Boy was I ever wrong! The main character is Eren. He is kind of a strange lead and that's why I was a bit turned off by it at first. Plus, Mikasa just seemed like another quiet type girl and that was not attractive. First impressions can definitely be wrong though.
The Titans are probably the scariest thing I've ever seen in an anime. They're even worse than the giants from Naussica. They are just the creepiest, most terrifying things and you totally get why no one wants to fight them but Eren. It takes a while to really get to know the main characters, but after they finally give a little back story, it just takes off.
Just go start watching it.
