Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) Episode 7 Quick Review

This is a manga spoiler free review. Please watch the episode before reading. Thanks ūüėČ

This episode we get into the midist of the action. Mikasa almost gives up! When she hears Eren’s words in her head “fight!”, she has the resolve to keep fighting.

BUT THEN THE BADASS TITAN COMES IN AND RIPS HIS HEAD OFF

That part was awesome!¬† The gore during that part was great aswell; Mikasa’s shocked face showed how blown away she was by this development.

Arimin grabs Mikasa, and they watch the battle take place.

So next episode the goal is to get the gas so they can jump the wall and escape. Hopefully there is no more sacrifices

And jean.. good going finally he realizes he’s not cut out for leadership with the death of his comrades… yeah good going

Type predictions you have for what will happen next episode! ūüôā

(Ill add pictures when I’m doing watching mr.crainers stream.. heh)

Shingeki no Kyojin is similar to Shinsekai Yori?

This is an idea that just came to me 2 minute’s ago while trying to fall asleep. No, I’m not comparing Shinsekai Yori to Shingeki, just drawing parallel’s.
If you are not aware, Shingeki no Kyojin is “Attack on Titan”. I’ll just¬†infer¬†you’ve heard of it by now (WHO HASN’T). If not look it up on MAL.

If you didn’t know, Shinsekai Yori was an anime that came out during the Fall 2012 Anime Season. Having 2 part’s, it ran until the ending of March. Shinsekai Yori was set in a dystopian world in 3000, 1000 years after our current time. People have¬†psychokinesis¬†– they can control thing’s with their mind.

Basically¬†some parallel’s or¬†similarity’s¬†I came up with:

  • Both set in a dystopian type world
  • Both occur in a primitive-like era
  • Both society’s hold¬†secrets
  • Both society’s have¬†government’s aiming to protect their town’s in crude way’s
  • Both¬†society’s¬†are stuck inside a cage-like area
  • Both world’s contain abnormal creature’s
  • Both stories solve the mystery’s of their world and face the hardships of their society
  • Both stories have wars against “human like creatures”

I could go on, but then I’d be drawing into spoiler¬†territory. I’d rather not go there.

Tell me what you think! Is Shingeki no Kyojin similar to Shinsekai Yori?

I’d¬†recommend¬†watching Shinsekai Yori if your into mystery or killing (so if your liking Shingeki; also¬†FYI¬†it’s a bit slower, but still adapts the source material smoothly)

(Also I’m aware alot of shows are like these too. I chose Shinsekai Yori for the fact that it just finished airing).

Quick thoughts on Spring 2013 Anime Season

As the season is nearing the halfway mark, I decided to share my opinions on the shows I am watching thus far. I’m not watching everything – I plan to marathon a few like Suisei no Gargantia and Ginga Kikoutai Majestic Prince at the end.

Hataraku Maou-sama! 

My favorite of the season thus far. It’s a comedy with the supernatural and¬†demons¬†with¬†hero’s¬†mixed together into one gigantic salad. The¬†Demon¬†Lord, Maou, and his¬†servant,¬†Ashiya, get stranded in the Human world after a fierce battle in their own world. They blend into human society and live their lives in poverty. I would¬†recommend¬†this if you like comedy with some cool action scenes

Shingeki no Kyojin

You’ve¬†probably¬†already heard of this anime, with all the hype that its getting. I will make this brief – it has a unique story with gore and action scenes pilled high. If your into that sort of stuff, give it a watch. I myself read the manga, and have to say this is one¬†faithful¬†manga adaption.

Date a Live

This¬†isn’t¬†exactly generic, but not unique either. It’s a typical romantic comedy, but set up like a dating video game. Our main character,¬†Shidou, must date spirit girls in order to protect the world. If you like generic romantic comedy’s with some supernatural elements, give this a watch.

Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge

I bring you, the anime with the hair fetish. If¬†Cuticle Tantei Inaba¬†wasn’t¬†enough. Well, give it a go if your into that.
In all seriousness, this hasn’t been bad so far. The story revolves around Iwai, the hair queen, and Kiri’s relationship. Kiri fights off the author’s attempts at Iwai’s life, because if she is killed, their wish may be granted. Kiri, being an author himself, can protect her. Romance and supernatural¬†aspects, with some¬†fan service¬†thrown in.
(Kiri is the one with the hair fetish btw)

Excuse me for my lazyness, but I can summarize the rest of these shows in a few words

RDG: Red Data Girl is Japanese Shinto legends with some romance and supernatural aspects.

Karneval (TV) is the generic shoujo of the season

Nyaruko-san and Oreimo are just second seasons, much like their prequels.

Please comments and give constructive criticizm for my post, I would appreciate it greatly
