I am about 2 years late to the party, but I've finally started watching Attack on Titan.
IT'S SO GOOD! Too many feels but I can't stop watching!
I'll be sharing my thoughts on each episode as I watch the show, so you can relive the experience with me. Or if you haven't watched it yet, you can watch along with me as I update this collection. Attack on Titan Review
A Dim Light Amid Despair: Humanity's Comeback, Part 1
Episode Summary (from Wikipedia)
The drill instructor Keith Shardis inspects the new recruits and provides a barrage of verbal insults. When he comes across Sasha Braus, who is eating a potato, he punishes her by having her run around the camp until sunset and not giving her any food or drink. Eren develops a rivalry with Jean Kirschtein, who desires a safe position in the Military Police within the inner city walls. The recruits train on an Omni-directional Mobility Gear apparatus, where they have to balance themselves while suspended on cables. After Eren has trouble balancing, he asks Reiner Braun and Bertholdt Hoover for help and discover they too are among the few who have personally encountered Titans. The next day, Eren balances on the apparatus but falls, however Keith discovers that the belt was defective and passes Eren after a retry.
My thoughts as I watched this episode:
>>> The drill instructor dude is creepy and scary...
>>> LOL love Sasha already *calmly eating potato in training*
>>> "Are you asking me why people eat potatoes?" HAHAHA
>>> She offered you half a potato…and you make her run till she drops. Keith is mean!
>>> STOP ASKING EREN ABOUT THE TITANS! They ate his mom, dammit.
>>> Whatever the three-dimensional maneuver gear is...I want one.
>>> Of course mean guy Jean falls for Mikasa. SMH
>>> LOL Sasha loves her food.
>>> OMG. Sasha is my new favorite SNK character! XD
>>> Why is Eren failing the training?…NOOOOO :(
>>> That face plant though! Ouch!
>>> Okay, how many years has Sasha been starving? XD
>>> How did Armin qualify for the military? He wouldn't hurt a fly...
>>> Reiner and Bertholdt are so nice to Eren and Armin. Bromance!
>>> Come on Eren, you can do it this time! Don't fall!
>>> He did it! Yay!!!…or not...
>>> OMG his belt was damaged….phew!
>>> YES. He did it! So dramatic! Hahaha
>>> Aww, he wants to stay with Mikasa and Armin! Such a softie!
>>> The trainer knows Eren's dad! Wuuuut? Speaking of which, where is the dad? Hmm.
"I'll kill every last one of them and break free of these walls."

I am really excited to see if Eren continues to do well and learn more about Sasha!
