Attack on Titan is a brutal, gory and heavily emotional Japanese animated series which is gearing up for the release of its second season. It’s been 3 years since the release of season 1, so Funimation plans to release 2 recap movies to remind you of the series’ exciting events. Part 1 will be titled Guren no Yumiya and part 2 will be Jiyuu no Tsubasa; both with run times of around 120 minutes.
Strangely enough, I’ve just started to watch Attack on Titan on Netflix and am seriously enjoying it’s blend of melodrama and hard-hitting horror. The series follows a world set 2000 years in the future where humans are on the brink of being extinct thanks to Titans. Titans are giants that devour humans for pleasure and it is up to a young boy called Eren, his foster sister Mikasa and their team of soldiers to protect and defend a small town of survivors that live behind a wall.
It’s definitely worth a watch if you’re after something with plenty of action and emotional back-stories that encourage the importance of courage, bravery, friendship and determination. Sure, it’s a bit too dramatic at times, but it’s also a lot of fun.
If you’re lucky enough to live around the select Reading and Alamao Drafthouse cinemas in the US, then you will be able to catch Part 1 on 27th March and Part 2 on the 28th or 29th; so keep an eye out.
Attack on Titan season 2 will be unleashed on 1st April 2018.
