AoT 37: A kinder, gentler Titan hand

Attack on Titan episode 37 review

AoT 37

The end of this season of Attack on Titan couldn’t have come sooner. What had been an entertaining second go at it ended up in utter confusion. It seems to me that in exchange for lucid activity, we get these big confusing action-filled scenes with Ymir and Christa continuing their obsession for each other. I’m sick and tired of Ymir and Christa at this point, I got the point about 5 episodes ago that they’re in love.

Oh, and don’t call her “Christa.” Call her “Historia.” Even though there has been absolutely zero effort made to help us understand why that matters in the least bit! Seriously, can you think of a single moment in any episode this season where you can point to and say “oh, now I see why she wants to be called that”? The manga doesn’t count. I don’t read the manga, nor will I, so everything I know is on screen. And if there isn’t proof of it on the screen, then to me it just seems like a waste of time.

Unfortunately, despite a great start, Attack on Titan‘s second season ends up fizzling out as a disappointment. Where do we go from here? A third season where questions are answered? Or a third season that mimics the second season by raising more questions than answers? I’m betting on the latter, but hopefully this most overrated of anime can do something right next time. Third time’s the charm, right?

Character of the episode: Eren

Episode rating (out of four stars): *1/2
