Attack on Titan may be well into its third season, but it still remains one of the most talked-about blockbuster anime series around. Admittedly, I’ve been somewhat lukewarm on the show, slowly cooling after the bombast and twists of its first few episodes. While I love its premise, and think it succeeds at crescendoing climaxes, I find its complete lack of subtly or restrain frequently off-putting. Normally I would be able to put up with this as long as the rest of it was structurally sound, but I think its primary three characters, mystery beats, and pacing can be problematic as well. However, Season 3 has somewhat changed my opinion on the previously mentioned problems, and while I wouldn’t describe it as a complete 180, I think I’m enjoying the show more than ever.
As of today GameRVW, the site I’ve been writing for, will be expanding to hosting articles about TV and film. As a result you can expect me to cross-post from there much more frequently. Check out my full thoughts on Season 3 of Attack on Titan here.
