    Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom

    ★★★½

    The back half of Season 1 has more action than the first half, but somehow feels a bit more sluggish. This is probably due to the fact that the characters are stuck in one location for several episodes: I can't necessarily say that the chase in the forest with the Female Titan is overlong, but it certainly feels like it.

I’m not expecting many (if any) people to read all of it, but it was only fair to dedicate this amount of space to a project as long and complex as The Return. If you do decide to read it, I appreciate it, and I probably owe you one.
