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.

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.
