Blu-ray Review: Attack on Titan – Movie 1


The Attack on Titan franchise continues to be popular as while Manga Entertainment UK continue to push-out a re-release of the anime series, and Koei Tecmo Europe releasing a video-game based on the anime in August, we find ourselves seeing Animatsu Entertainment release the live-action adaptation of the franchise from Toho Studios. So; does this live action film deserve your attention? Well that all depends on your perspective but we take a closer look to find out what this UK Blu-ray release has in store.


Fast-forward 100 years. What remains of the human population now survives in relative peace behind massive walls erected in defence against the Titans. That peace is shattered when a Colossal Titan, measuring over 50 meters tall, smashes through the wall and allows a horde of other Titans to enter.

Eren Yeager had resigned himself to a life confined behind these walls. “Nothing I do would make a difference”, he thought. But when he joins the ‘Outer Wall Restoration Team’ set up to fight against the Titans, he is reunited with Mikasa, a childhood friend. The new recruits embark on a mission to plug the gaping hole in the wall and stop the waves of titans once and for all. With humanity’s survival on the line, will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself? Read more of this post
