        Personally, Attack on Titan is my favorite anime and I have many reasons for why it is. When I first heard about it I thought I was never going to watch it because I thought it sounded boring, but as soon as I watched the first episode, I couldn’t stop. That first day I started watching it, I was already half way through the first season. Attack on Titan is about these people living inside of walls and then one day all of a sudden, a titan that was almost 200 feet tall came and kicked down the walls. As soon as the first wall was broken, other shorter titans (9-45ft) invaded the walls and ATE the humans that lived there. I’m going to stop here because I don’t want to spoil it, but there is so much more to it. I liked it because it got straight to the point in the first episode.

        Another reason why I like it is because it has very realistic characters. For example, Jean Kirstein is a very realistic character. A lot of the characters have already gotten used to killing others in order to protect themselves but Jean still can’t do it. At first he seemed like a teenager that liked to pick up fights but as the story goes on, I started to understand how he felt. I love this anime and I can’t wait for a new episode to come out on Sunday!
