FIRST IMPRESSION

Despite fewer Titans, the great animation and intense human drama make the series wroth watching.

With the third season of Attack On Titan, a lot of mysteries and revelations come to the surface. When a series dives into so many revelations a lot of momentum can be lost and some fans can lose interest. Is it worth sticking with this series or are fans better off letting this one go?

Summary

The truth about the Titans begins to come to light. Political secrets, a false king, and the reality that will shake the foundation of the world—all falls on the shoulders of Eren and his friends, as they fight to survive. With Historia set to be the rightful Queen, the Levi Squad must act. But a figure from Levi’s past, the deadly Kenny, could turn this into a losing battle. Are Eren and his friends prepared to face the true monsters that lie within the walls?

Writing

It seems the fan base has fallen off a bit with this series with the return of the third season. It is hard to tell if it is the wait between the release of the episodes or the actual content of the seasons. Thought the Titans don’t appear much in these sets of episodes and instead, the main focus is the politics, conspiracy, and drama of what it takes for humans to live behind the walls of this society, the content is still entertaining. It actually helps to showcase there is more appeal to this series than simply weird looking naked giants eating people.

This third season is not without action scenes. It is more human on human violence as Kenny, the leader of the First Interior Squad and Levi’s former mentor becomes the antagonist for the season. Kenny steals the spotlight as a villain who is remorseless in his actions and will do whatever it takes to get the job done. Watching him menace the Levi Squad keeps the audience on the edge of their seats.

Animation

There are a lot of good animation moments worth mentioning in this season. Historia and her time on the farm is especially of note as it seems to be drawn in lighter colors to showcase a contrast of how innocent her childhood was before she learned the truth. The time in the caverns makes use of effects to illustrate the mysticism which takes place in the area. There are a lot of great visuals all around and demonstrates how quality has not decreased.

Extras

There are a ton of extras in this release, especially if you spend the extra cash and get the limited edition release. With either edition, you are treated to interviews, commentary, and a short known “Chibi Theater: “Go Get’Em, New Levi Squad!.” The limited edition features a box to collect the other half of the season when it is released, and a book featuring art and 4-panel comics. Definitely worth the cost of obtaining the physical copy of the series.

Conclusion

Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 1 doesn’t have as much intense action as in previous season but it does have a lot of great intrigue and drama. It explores the depths of the world building behind the show and delivers a punch in the gut. The audience shouldn’t be so quick to count out Attack On Titan as it still has a lot to offer those who are willing to stick with it to the end.

Attack on Titan Season 3 Part 1 is available from Funimation.
