9. Attack On Titan
Attack On Titan aired between April 6, 2013 and September 28, 2013. After his hometown is destroyed and his mother is killed, young Eren Jaegar vows to cleanse the earth of the giant humanoid Titans that have brought humanity to the brink of extinction.
2000 years from now, humans are nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence and devour human beings. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind.
It will put you on an emotional rollercoaster that’ll leave you gasping for air throughout. What starts off as a tasty, action romp becomes something really weird and depressing yet perversely entertaining at the same time.
