2. Great Character Development
Why Character Development makes one of the reasons to watch Attack on Titan?
The story of Attack on Titan revolves around the characters living in three concentric walled cities to protect the rest of humanity from giant beings known as Titans. Even though the main protagonist of the series is Eren Yeager, the series justifies the use of other characters by balancing out their own stories in the plot.
Every character serves a unique purpose to the story and also makes a way for a great character development. With new characters being introduced after every few episodes, get ready to face a wide range of emotions from admiration to infuriation in this emotional rollercoaster ride of a journey.
3. Amazing Selection of Soundtracks
Why Soundtrack makes one of the reasons to watch Attack on Titan?
What makes or breaks the success of a great anime series is the kind of soundtrack used. The Attack on Titan doesn’t compromise in this regard and delivers some of the best soundtracks we’ve ever encountered.
The choice of soundtracks used in this series will immerse you deep into the scenes. The soundtracks will make you feel like you’re the one going through the story arc; the chills and the goosebumps from the music makes each scene much more fascinating.
4. Dark and Violent
It shouldn’t come as a surprise as the series is a rather dark fantasy set around human-eating monsters. Attack on Titans is in no way intended for children. This might not be a plus point for all as not everybody goes around in search of dark and violent content in a series. But if you don’t mind a little-to-moderate gore action, this series will be worth it.
Apart from the man devouring Titans, the gruesome world of Attack on Titan also includes some human villains which makes the plotline more intriguing and keeps you emotionally addicted to the series.
5. Unforgettable Action Sequences

The epitome of this anime series is its wildly popular action sequences. The plot revolves around our main characters taking on the gigantic Titans, so it should come as a no-brainer that there will be a lot of fight scenes involved in the series.
Ever had the urge to rewatch a particular fight scene from your favorite show or movie like Iron Man vs. Hulk showdown? If yes, then the fight sequences from this anime will surely take you to that point to notice and admire the detailed work put into the animation, which brings us to our next point.
6. Top Quality Animation
Why Quality of Animation makes one of the reasons to watch Attack on Titan?
The quality of animation is the reason why people choose to stick to the animated series. No matter how good the storyline is, if the quality of any series sucks,then nobody’s going to invest their time in that series.
Speaking of which, Attack on Titan delivers the best possible animation to its viewers. From stunning visuals behind action scenes to the attention-to-detail in the whole storyline, the quality of animation speaks for the worldwide success of the animated series.
