I first saw Attack On Titan back around 2014 when I watched the first two episodes. But I put off for years until I learned season 2's premiere on Toonami in April, I binged the first season. And while I enjoyed it, I had a few qualms. I'll sum up my pros and cons since this is a forum post and it's best to keep it short. Pros: *Awesome Characters like Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Levi, and Sasha. *The action is cool. *Interesting survival horror plot Cons *Lacking in tone contrast and is heavy on melodrama. *Lacking characterization of the supporting cast, making their deaths weightless. *Indecisive pacing switching between being fast and slow. All and all I enjoyed Attack On Titan, but it's good not exceptionally great.

I am enjoying season 2 now. I am so upset that season 2 only have 12 episodes. I guess I will enjoy season 3 with my future grand children.

@CaptAlbertWhisker What makes you think season 3 will take that long? Also my only qualm with Season 2 thus far is that it makes the "basement key" feel like a mcguffin...

@Hanyouyomi It took us almost half a decade before we got season 2.

@CaptAlbertWhisker The sad thing is you're right. xD Was a reason ever given for the long wait?

@magnumopus I'm glad you liked it. Especially since I didn't convey my full opinions. For starters Armin's rather useful, I don't get why fans on social media think he's useless. But after episode six, if he so much as whined about being useless AFTER SAVING HIS TEAM WITH AN INGENIOUS PLAN, I was gonna wanna punch him. And then there's Eren... Everyone sees him as an "EdgeLord," when really he's as optimistic as Luffy, Naruto, and Goku. He's just really aggressive with his optimism.
