«This world is cruel. But it’s also … it’s also beautiful.»
Mikasa in «Attack on Titan»
«Attack on Titan» is a very interesting manga (also turned into an anime series). It’s hard to write about it without giving spoilers. But, damn, it combines … very, very brutal scenes with … nice moments. I mean, the mindless cruelty of the pure Titans, the protagonists just trying to break out of their cage, the events behind it, all very well done.
I haven’t finished watching the anime, but finished the manga series (34 volumes) a few days ago and … kudos. It has one of those endings that is, well, yeah, bittersweet. And even with a few «got something in my eye» moments. sniff I mean, this scene here (reminder: mangas are read right to left):
Yeah. Am reminded of the way the late Sean Connery’s character (Malone) died in «The Untouchables». Yeah.
Highly recommended, even though it does fuck you up at times.
