Honestly, AOT isn't the kind of thing you look back upon and think: "oh wow! how could I watch this without cringing". It's a legit good show and even if you aren't really into anime it's quite easy to watch.
Doubt anyone who has actually watched AOT and knows how hard is storytelling doesn't put it on a similar level as Breaking Bad, The Wire, True Detective s1, etc.
I was fooled by its looks (A Cartoon with giant naked dudes), but thank god I ended up giving it a chance and I'm able to witness such a Masterpiece.
Ye Iam a bit about the pacing. Marley won’t be that long bc it’s mostly fights but war for paradise doesn’t have that much action and will end in like 4+ chapters. It’s gonna be a close call with 25 eps
the directing isnt as good as season 1 and the visuals were better in season 2.
there are some moments with great animation etc but earlier season were better in that regard. 3-2 was still my favorite season
