Some people have made theories about this anime stating that the people of Paradis Island in Attack on Titan are basically Jews. And because of this theory, the anime itself has been labelled as Anti-semitic by the raging people of Twitter, which I honestly don’t really understand how they could come to that conclusion. But I’m here to fight against that theory. The people of the Paradis Island are not Jews.Continue reading
I recently finished watching a tennis sports anime called ‘Baby Steps’. I’ve watched a few sports anime every now and then but I have to say this is the most realistic sports anime I’ve ever seen. It has the beginners approach because the main Character, Maruo Eichirou only starts playing tennis without any knowledge of tennis at all. So you dive into the anime without much knowledge of the sport and learn about it the same pace as Maruo.
Another thing that makes the anime realistic is the significance of training and practice. In this anime… THE CHARACTERS ACTUALLY PRACTICE!!! I mean of course other sports anime show the characters practice too but it is not as detailed and as important as Baby Steps. In this anime, they actually show us why certain way of practice is necessary for development and how long the practices should be done. Practices and training in this anime majorly affect the results of the matches that the main character plays.
This is the wrap up of my genre posts. From my previous posts, it’s very obvious that I like a light-hearted genre more than a dark and depressing genre. Especially now that I’m in my final semester of college where there are many things to do but I have no idea how to do them. At all. But I’m expected to do great at them… God just let this end quick!
As you can see from my previous posts, I generalize the genre to make it easier for me to differentiate. I usually see romance as something very related to drama so I lump those two together. Granted there are romantic comedy so it’s categorized as comedy.
It’s safe to say that shounen anime is the most popular genre of anime. From the big three of Naruto, One Piece and Bleach, shounen anime somehow wins the audience attention including myself.
I really don’t get how the shounen anime is categorized. It’s basically anime targeted towards young boys right? Is that the only category that they narrow? I mean, sure whatever young boys like, right? Of course the most popular is action series. But young boys also like comedy and cute girls. Are those anime considered shounen? How come Death Note is considered shounen? It barely has any action scenes!!!

Humans are attacked by man-eating giants called ‘titan’ by surprise. Because they are so powerful compared to humans, mankind are on the verge of extinction. However, a small population of human survive by building three impossibly high walls that separates them from the titans. After building the walls, mankind live in peace from the titan for one whole century.
In the year 845, a Colossal Titan suddenly appears and breaches the wall attacking humans within the wall. Now that one of the walls has been breached and titans swarming in, how will mankind endure this disaster?
I know I’m extremely late for the party so that’s why I write a spoiler-filled review rather than spoiler-free review. I believe most people in the anime fandom have already watched this massively hyped anime series so why bother writing a spoiler-free review for this anime? And it’s easier for me to discuss. Okay now, let’s go through the anime shall we?
