  • Gin’s Take On: Eren


    Warning: These blogs are not meant to offend anyone and are only Gin’s opinions.


    Eren is the mainn protagonist of the popular anime series Attack on Titan. You probably knew that though.


    Gin’s Take


    Eren’s character is first introduced when he is having a nightmare. He awakens with tears rolling down his face. At the beginning of the season, Eren seems young and innocent. This is not the case after teh titans break through the walls. His tears seemed to foreshadow the hurt and emotional upheavals which were to come. We then get introduced to his family and as we witness, his relationship with his mother. This and the developments that occur all add up to emphasise the response Eren would have towards the loss of his mother. In a way, these few scenes teach us a lesson to love and treasure our parents while we can.

    Personally for an anime to actually interest me, it requires some boom at the start. The gore and the blood sure got me! I literally had to shut my eyes when his mother died. Eren then vows to exterminate all titans and this is where it all gets fuzzy. We see flashbacks of his father and him in a forest. There are theories that the injection is what caused Eren to become a titan shifter. Thent eh theory goes further and says that he ate his father to seal teh ritual. It is a little fuzzy in my head!

    Sooner or later, Eren who has always had an infatuation with the Survey Corps and their idea of freedom, joins the Survey Corps to get closer to his goal of revenge. I personally believe that the significance of Eren’s character and his drive for revenge makes him easy to understand. Revenge is a very human emotion. Attack on Titan seems to face the dark themes of sacrifice and the reality of death. This allows Eren’s character to fit perfectly with the storyline. However, certain aspects of his character are so annoying. That impulsive hot-head behaviour, it is like he wants to die sometimes.


    Ereri Fandom


    It is hard to talk about Eren without bringing up the subject of Ereri. Don’t know what that is? Well if you are a fan of Attack on Titan, or have watched it, you know about the character Levi. there are people who love to place the two characters together as a relationship. As fandom goes, this one is even worse than Free!, but no way near as bad as Fairy Tail. As much as I love the characters, there are times when I see a yaoi picture of Eren and Levi and just think ‘Why?’ As far as I am concerned, Levi does not even like Eren.

    The shipping is literally everywhere. As I scrolled for pictures for Eren, I can safely say that the fandom has some very imaginative minds when it comes to yaoi fanart. Poor Gin is scarred! Scarred I tell you!! Just kidding, I am not that innocent.


    Gin’s Verdict on Eren


    Eren is a character that is half teenage angst and half admirable and brave. Even if it is at a stupidly brave level. his will to carrt out his revenge is interesting to watch. Attack on Titan is one of those animes of which the character popularity gets blown up, but with characters like Eren it is alright. Eren will never be one of my favorite characters, mainly because he isn’t terribly intellectual. The suspense in the anime is certainly appealling.

    Attack on Titan Anime Review
    Attack on Titan

    Are we the prey my brothers? No! We are the hunters!! In a medieval world where humanity has been reduced to a number of wayward souls behind a fortified city, an endless army of Titans are ready to feast on their trampled corpses. But they will fight back! The young Eren Jeager witnesses how those broken walls were nothing but the reminder that they live in fear of the Titans. His mother is brutally killed by one before his eyes at a young age. This is the sacrifice to the ritual where he swears to erase them from the planet once and for all. The question is, Are these Titans worth fighting against? Well you’ll find out in this last review of mankind, will it be a grim one?
    What follows is my humble review of Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) by Hajime Isayama. This review is solely based on the 2013 anime. We will analyze the following points: Graphics, Characters, Sound, Story and Personal Enjoyment.

    Animation and Art of Attack on Titan

    Score 9/10
    Attack on Titan

    This is essentially the most positive aspect of Attack on Titan and is hardly debatable. One of the best detailedly animated series of the 2013, the animation studio was even met with a serious lack of animators because of its AAA production values. Fluid and fast paced action given by the three dimensional maneuver gear, if only there were more though. The art is very good and far better than the manga and the eyes (beautifully drawn) convey emotions so perfectly that they could at times send a shiver down your spine. That “dirty” style also present in the manga, helps in the creation of an excellent vibe of hopelessness.

    Characters of Attack on Titan

    Score 6/10
    Attack on Titan

    It’s time for us to actually delve deep into Attack on Titan not so perfect aspects this time. The characters, while likable, are nothing that stray away from obvious stereotypes already established by shows like Evangelion and Fullmetal Alchemist. It’s too much to overlook it even though it may not be noted by an inexpert eye. The main cast of protagonists, especially Mikasa and Levi, are very cool and interesting, but partly due to the 26 episode limitation, their characterization does not lift off more than the necessary. The rest of the cast, while again very likeable, are left to side dish status.

    Soundtrack and Acting of Attack on Titan

    Score 8/10
    Attack on Titan

    The musical score of Attack on Titan was entrusted for composition to the fan favourite Hiroyuki Sawano, honestly one of my favourite composers in the industry. Sawano’s epic german chorus style would be perfect for a series like this, but instead it proves to be one of his least remarkable works in my honest opinion. Working perfectly as background music but nothing that stays engraved in your mind for a long time. The Japanese acting is carefully executed and attentive as well as the English one. What earns most of the vote is the awesome openings: Guren no Yumiya and Jiyuu no Tsubasa.

    Story and Pacing of Attack on Titan

    Score 6/10
    Attack on Titan

    The story of Attack on Titan revolves around the mystery around all narrative elements, a twist is solved and another one is introduced creating a complex chain that, again partly due to the 26 episode limitation, almost never concludes. The series obviously tends to stretch things with various “filler” scenes that are spread throughout the episodes. This doesn’t make the pacing perfect. Though the battle scenes and strongly emotional events are almost perfectly rendered, but at times the reactions are too exaggerated. It’s important to notice how the series is cleverly crafted into something (apparently) totally original when it’s not. It’s essentially a mecha series disguised as a fantasy and people who watched the series knows what I’m talking about. An ending that is not an ending, an underwhelming cliffhanger that tells us “see ya in 3 years for more hahahaha!”. The show screams of “This is still nothing” very loudly.

    Personal Enjoyment of Attack on Titan

    Score 7/10

    Attack on Titan
    This is the purely subjective part of the review my friends, my personal attachment and enjoyment out of Attack on Titan. This is a show with great potential that doesn’t shine with originality, let’s be honest. The show’s popularity makes it look like this is the first time something like this is seen in the industry when it’s blatantly wrong. The battles were awesome, but the pacing was not unfortunate. The characters were likable, but certain ones outside of those few never really had a role other than creating drama. I sense a constant feeling of “the best is yet to come, you ain’t seen nothing yet” every time.

    Overall Score 6.7/10
    See ya in my next review!
