Attack on Titan, also known as Shingeki No Kyojin, is a popular manga and is now “an equally popular anime” worldwide.

Hajime Isayama, the creator of this dark and dystopian series has now become a “global best-seller” (BBC) manga artist with its gain of popularity over the past years.

Many viewers find this series unpredictable and unexpected as the show contains numerous plot twists that leave you on the edge of your seat. Fans appreciate how different this anime is from the others. 

The show conveys how victories come with their consequences, and these consequences are fatal. Sacrifices are made, most are unintentional and the characters reveal how they work around it. Celebrations and happiness are rarely seen as the numerous deaths and trauma the characters go through make it unbearable. 

The mystery and action of Attack on Titan continue to attract even more viewers leading it to be one of the most popular animes. Desperate and gloomy themes seem to keep fans entertained. 

It’s one of my favorite animes; it’s unique and the plot just makes me want to keep on watching. The shows contain different perspectives of the characters and how each reveals their feelings, which some people can relate to in a way. It may be unusual as it’s a very dark series but I believe that’s why it is so eye-catching to many others.

Attack on Titan season four part two has recently ended a few weeks ago and part three will air in 2023. This can be viewed on Hulu, Crunchyroll, etc, with English dub or in Japanese with English subtitles.
