I remember when the first season of Attack on Titan came out over six years ago. Its visceral and brutal approach to storytelling made an immediate impression on an international anime community that was gradually growing more connected. It also didn’t hurt that it had an instantly meme-able OP, but…it was mainly the story. The initial shock of its first-half waned during its second, and when it wrapped months later, many feared it might go the way of many other amazing shows that were only given one season before vanishing into obscurity. Four years passed between that and its eventual sequel season, followed by both halves of this recently ended one, and it looks like we’ll be riding this train all the way to the end as the next season will see the conclusion of the story.
