Attack on Titan season 2.
In six words or less: Humanity is threatened by people-eating Titans.
Why I’m watching it: I can’t remember when or why Attack on Titan appeared on my radar – was it the manga or the anime that came first?! I watched the first series last year, and I really enjoyed it but also felt like I just wanted something more out of it – I’m not sure what, but I just didn’t love it as much as I expected to. I’m hoping season 2 is going to be even better than the first and boost it to a firm favourite.
Where I’ve got to so far
I’ve so far watched the first two episodes, but then our internet went down so I haven’t had chance to watch any more yet! There are only twelve episodes this season so I’m hoping I’ll be finished by the time the next Binge Watchers rolls around 😉 So far I’m hooked!
But I want more! [Related stuff and similar shows]
For more Attack on Titan….I might pick up the original manga series, because although I’ve read some of the Before the Fall series – set before the events of the anime – I’ve never read the orignal series, and it might help fill the gap left by finishing the anime.
For more apocalyptic drama/horror…I guess The Walking Dead is an obvious choice (titans and zombies aren’t that far apart after all) but I think I’m too much of a wimp! The 100 is an option – I started it before and didn’t get hooked but maybe I’ll give it another go.
For more anime… Avatar: The Last Airbender isn’t actually an anime but it has a similar feel so I’m counting it! I finished Season 1 recently so I already know I like it. I’ve already seen (and loved) Sword Art Online season 1, so Season 2 of that would be an option, or I could start Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, one of the most popular anime shows but one I’ve not seen any of!
What’s up next?
I’m not sure! Possible contenders include Grey’s Anatomy Season 6, The Vampire Diaries season 7, Orphan Black Season 5, Avatar: The Last Airbender Season 2, Sword Art Online season 2 or American Gods Season 1.
