Hey, guys -- we've had a weird drop in views over the past week, so if you're reading this review and you enjoy it, consider either giving it a boost on Google+, commenting, or sharing it with friends/communities, etc. You'd be giving me a huge help in fulfilling my arbitrary goal of beating last month's views, as well as contributing to the general growth of this blog. Thanks loads.
Attack on Titan
Series 2, Episode 5
Last week, I incorrectly said that this series was twenty-four episodes long -- it's actually twelve, meaning that we're nearly halfway through now, and that feels more than a little odd. A quarter of the series being taken up by this one day and night is one thing, a whole five twelfths of it taking place over a single twenty-four hour period just feels absurd.
Obviously, that time has been padded out some with flashbacks -- we've got to see some impressive amounts of backstory for Sasha, Christa, and Ymir, as well as a little bit of backstory for Reiner -- but for the most part, it feels almost like a waste. Had it been so inclined, the show probably could have compressed these five episodes down to about three or four.
