Attack on Titan Season 3 (2018)
進撃の巨人 (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Synopsis

Eren and his companions in the 104th are assigned to the newly-formed Levi Squad, whose assignment is to keep Eren and Historia safe given Eren’s newly-discovered power and Historia’s knowledge and pedigree. Levi and Erwin have good reason to be concerned because the priest of the Church that Hanji had hidden away was found tortured to death, making it clear that the Military Police are involved with the cover-up. Things get more harrowing when the MPs make a move on Erwin and the Levi Squad narrowly avoids capture. Eren is also having problems with his Titan transformation, and a deadly killer has been hired to secure Eren and Historia, one Levi knows all too well from his youth.

TL;DR Review

Attack on Titan season 3 was released in two parts. The season’s first 12 episodes were broadcast from July 23 to October 15, 2018, before going into hiatus until April 29, 2019.

The first 12 episodes start a little slow due to the lack of action. However, the closing half more than makes up for it, including answering some lingering questions. This season has a good call back to the previous seasons with scenes that help flesh out some of the sub-plots. Though the third season had ended, I feel quite satisfied as more questions had been answered than not.

The production and animation are great and on par with the previous seasons. Though there seem to be fewer fight scenes, the fight had become much bigger in scope. This season has an uneven pacing issue between long drawn out dialogs and the epic fight sequences.

A definite must-watch for those that enjoyed the first two seasons. Attack on Titan contains graphic violence and suggestive themes/dialogs. Parental guidance is advised. Intended for mature audiences.

Overlord Season 3 (2018) Review

In the year 2126, a Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game or DMMORPG called Yggdrasil was released. It stands out among all other DMMORPG’s due to its unusually high ability for the player to interact with the game. After an intense 12-year run the game servers are about to be shut down. Within the game exists a guild, Ainz Ooal Gown, once consisting of 41 members and credited as one of the strongest guilds in the game. Now only 4 of the members remain, the other 37 having quit the game. Of those 4 only one, an elder lich character named Momonga, continues to play as the guild leader and maintaining their headquarters, The Great Tomb of Nazarick. He invites the remaining guild members but of those only one appears and only for a short while before leaving. While saddened by this, he accepts the reality that his friends have their real lives to take care of and decides to stay logged in until the servers shut down.

When the shut-down time arrives however, Momonga finds that the game hasn’t vanished. Instead it appears as if Yggdrasil has been recreated as its own reality along with its various NPCs having been brought to life while Momonga has been trapped in the form of his game avatar, leaving him unable to use the normal player functions, such as General Message, or even to log out. With no other option, Momonga sets out to learn if anyone from ‘the real world’ is also in this new world with him. Taking on the name of Ainz Ooal Gown, a message to any other players, Momonga begins exploring the world in an attempt to figure out what has happened while searching for anyone, or anything, that could help him solve this mystery while ensuring the safety of Nazarick.
