Attack on Titan is set in a world plagued by giant titans that stomp about gobbling up humans at random. It's unnaturally messy and bloody and horrific and really just wonderful. So naturally we've all been waiting for the next installment of the anime series. And news has it the second season of the series has been confirmed, and production started last month! But still no official premiere date.

Until then get excited about the two new episodes (non-related to the second season) that will premiere sometime before the new season based on the prequel novel Attack On Titan: No Regrets. According to Bleeding Cool, the prequel episodes will be released on December 9th and April 9th. And on top of all that, the English-dubbed first series will be combined into two films and screened separately. The first film will premiere on November 22nd.

You know, the imagery is super evocative in Attack on Titan, and the premise is super cool. But am I the only person with a passing interest in anime who thinks, just maybe, the writing on that show was abysmal? Clunky (human) villains, unnecessary melodrama, and pretty poor characters all around.

To be fair, I quit after episode 8ish when a character's death was assisted by a half-assed flashback to their life beforehand. If you wrote the character right in the first place, you wouldn't need to put in a flashback in the last minute to get us to care about the character. My friend who got to like episode 20 made it sound like it didn't get any better.
