Attack on Titan Season 2
進撃の巨人 (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Synopsis

Many years ago, the last remnants of humanity were forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that roamed the land outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scouting Legion dared to stray beyond the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive. Those within the city clung to the illusion of a peaceful existence until the day that dream was shattered, and their slim chance at survival was reduced to one horrifying choice: kill – or be devoured!

TL;DR Review

This is a shorter season of Attack on Titan with only 12 episodes. The story takes up almost right after where the first season ended.

The story doesn’t seem to progress much, though many revelations were revealed. Bit and pieces of the world and some characters are slowing being expanded upon.

This season focuses more on some side characters and the action was more an afterthought. For this reason, this season feels a little slower than the first. The second season is still good, despite being short and rather talkative.

The music choice is similar to the previous season. I am not particularly fond of their music selections. They were neither good nor bad, just not particularly memorable.

I still highly recommend this series to Games of Thrones fan that don’t mind gory violence scenes. Attack on Titan contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Parental guidance is advised. Intended for mature audiences.

Dororo (2019) Season 1 Review

Dororo, a young orphan thief, falls into the company of Hyakkimaru, a powerful demon-hunting rōnin. Before Hyakkimaru’s birth his father, a greedy feudal lord, made a pact with 48 demons and let them each take a piece of his unborn son’s body, in return for granting him great power. Hyakkimaru was born a barely human creature—without arms, legs, eyes, ears, a nose, or a mouth—and his father had him thrown in the river. He was rescued and raised by Dr. Honma, who made him artificial limbs and helped him learn to fight the demons—each time he defeats one he reclaims one piece of his body. Now he and Dororo travel together through the war-torn countryside.

Tokyo Ghoul (2015) OVA 2 Review

Shuu Tsukiyama (aka Gourmet), is photographed by Chie Hori, a classmate while eating a meal. However, she doesn’t seem fazed by him, or his choice of meals, and is apparently in it just for photography. But Shuu Tsukiyama doubts her motives.
