Attack on Titan: Junior High Review (Anime)

Attack on Titan: Junior High
           Official poster

Attack on Titan: Junior High is a bite-sized parody of Attack on Titan where Titans steal the student’s lunches instead of their lives, and Titans have a monopoly on school clubs and activities. The students – face we all know and love – band together to fight the Titan threat and to protect their food.

Characters are parodies of themselves with Eren’s desire to kill Titans coming from his lunch being stolen as a child, rather than his mother being brutally killed. Mikasa is unable to function without Eren in close proximity, and Armin is highly susceptible to colds and so is constantly wrapped in his blanket. It doesn’t make fun of the characters per se, but it does stretch their extremities for humor and it generally has more hits than it does misses. With each episode being roughly fifteen minutes long, it never outstays its welcome.

Plot :

On his first day of junior high, Eren Jaeger comes face-to-face with a Titan—and has his lunch stolen! From that day on, he holds a grudge against Titans for taking his favorite food from him, a cheeseburger, vowing to eliminate their kind once and for all. Along with his two childhood friends Mikasa Ackermann and Armin Arlelt, the trio traverse the halls of Titan Junior High, encountering familiar faces and participating in various extracurricular activities such as being a part of the Wall Cleanup Club, led by Rico Brzenska.

A parody of the immensely popular parent series, Attack on Titan: Junior High places beloved characters as junior high school students, fighting to protect their lunches from gluttonous Titans. The spin-off incorporates gags while using Attack on Titan’s story and notable scenes as its basis.

My review :

Overall, I really did enjoy this anime, which shows that it’s just about the emotional level that Attack on Titan brings along – the characters and the plot aid it too. With the combination of some very clever gags – such as in episode 8, where the ghost is called Freida (that’s a major spoiler only known at this point in time if you’ve read the manga or looked up spoilers on Wikipedia), seeing the chibi version of Linked Horizon (who sung both opening for the original anime and for this one too) and having the original voice actors (both subbed and dubbed versions of the anime), I really enjoyed it while I wait for season 2. However, a lot of people on MAL seem to disagree with me.
