  • What’s Up with Attack on Titan’s Weird Fascist Cult?

    I’m about to discuss the ending of Attack on Titan, spoiling everything that the Final Season Part Three (no, for real guys, it’s the final final part) will cover. So, if you’re not caught up or willing to get spoiled, beware. There has been this bizarre divide in the fan base for a while now. […]

  • What Makes The Best Anime Protagonist?

    Last year, I wrote an essay on Lelouch, explaining how Code Geass created what I believe to be the best protagonist in anime, and I got a fair amount of disagreement from peers and readers. I mean, it’s a subjective question, but any time I’m confronted by our nature to needlessly debate that which is […]

  • The Otaku Exhibition’s Anime of the Year 2021

    It doesn’t feel like very long ago I was writing my Anime of the Year post for 2020, and I can still vividly recall the tremendous difficulty I had in picking mine. In a year with Kaguya, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Attack on Titan, I was still trying to catch my breath before Winter 2021 famously […]

However, I’ve been trying and failing to write something about Attack on Titan before its final season, so let’s give this a […]

  • Attack on Titan and CGI in Anime

    When I was just a fledgling otaku, the words line art, compositing, and sakuga meant little to me. An appreciation for the heights that animation can reach takes time to acquire, and you might know a masterclass by your fifth anime, your fiftieth, or even beyond that. But there was something that nagged at me […]

  • Attack on Titan Can’t Be Anime of the Year

    Oh, clickbait titles, how I’ve missed you. 2020, in spite of its many delays and production disasters, has produced some amazing titles, and it has made declaring an ‘anime of the year’ difficult. Two long-awaited series have returned to triumphant applause, Attack on Titan with its fourth and final season, and Re:Zero’s second after a […]

  • Attack on Titan: The Architect of Hype

    If you know anime, you know Attack on Titan. Even if you don’t know anime, you probably know Attack on Titan. Its meteoric rise to mainstream came quickly after its debut in 2013, quickly appealing to the tastes of a culture that wanted gritty and lethal action. It has since become one of the biggest […]
