Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by Titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest Titans. 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.
|nudity||3/10 Titans, the main antagonists, are giant humanoid creatures, mostly of male physiology, always shown naked but they have NO sexual or digestive organs so there's nothing truly offensive. The only female of the species is skinless, so besides not having any genitalia like all the others, she has no nipples either.|
|violence||9/10 Is bloody in general, but they are some episodes with very little gore and violence. However all of them are quite intense or disturbing. Characters are sometimes bloodily killed by others, from being chopped with axes, stabbed with knives, or slashed with swords. Occasionally bloody decapitations of Titans. We see them regenerating their bodies a few times. Some people are eaten by the Titans, but the act is mostly done off-screen. You'll see the moment right before a person is eaten, then usually brief blood spray. Characters can lose limbs during the more graphic scenes, but it's shown rarely. The main character often bites hard into his own hand until blood is drawn. A Titan punches another Titan and their head falls off.|
|profanity||6/10 Frequent language including "ass", "damn", "hell', "bastard" and infrequent uses of "shit" and "fuck." The English dub doesn't have any uses of "fuck", but still contains frequent language, particularly, more use of "son of a bitch" than in the subtitles. Other words like "hell", "damn", "bastard" and "ass" are used regularly. Around 7-10 uses of "shit".|
|alcohol||3/10 Infrequent drinking in some episodes. Not too much.|
|frightening||10/10 The plot of the anime of titans that they eat and kill people and destroy cities it's quite disturbing. The show can be bleak at times. Moments of victory are usually undermined by subsequent defeats, and are often bittersweet with too many casualties to be considered a "win". A chained-up main character is bloodily beaten in a short scene. Titans can have grotesque appearances. There are some very intense moments, but the series is definitely softer and (at times) more melodramatic than other R-rated anime. TV-Rating: TV-14-LV/TV-MA-V. Suggested rating: R for bloody violence and some language.|
