Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably aware of the monumental impact that Attack on Titan has had on the anime world since it's premiere. As somebody who has been viewing and reviewing anime for a long time, I can say that this is the rare series that actually lives up to the hype. People will complain about pacing issues about a third of the way in, but these problems, if you even consider them to be such, are minuscule compared to the overall levels of quality put into the series. As far as the story goes, while it does have elements of other previous projects, such as Gantz and Claymore, it still remains a unique concept in and of itself. At it's core, Attack on Titan is a story about survival and humanity's refusal to die out, even against colossal odds. It brilliantly mixes elements of post apocalyptic, medieval fantasy, revenge, and even a little bit of steam punk, and it all comes together to form your classic 'hero versus monster' story. The voice acting is very well done, and I cannot say enough good things about the soundtrack. Above all else, I'm grateful that they had the good sense to put the series on hiatus while the manga continues, rather than giving us endless episodes of filler, that nobody really wants to see.
