In part I of my series of posts about Attack on Titan I mainly addressed the hype surrounding the show and added some general first impressions about the art, design, animation, story, etc. This and future posts will deal a bit more with the actual plot, and will therefore include spoilers (I am assuming if you are reading this you're already watching the show).

Hype, hype, hype, hype, hype, hype, hype. It will be utterly impossible for anyone to discuss Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) this season without at least addressing the frenzied excitement leading up to, and following, its premier last week. The only missing piece in the puzzle was that it hadn't been licensed for simulcast yet, but that issue was recently resolved when it was announced that it would be airing... on both Crunchyroll and FUNImation. Did I mention this show has a lot of hype?
