Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou Episode 1 Impressions

Shingeki Kyojin SchoolI have to say I didn’t think I’d enjoy Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou this much because the manga didn’t appeal to me as much but I suppose the vibrant colours of the animation and the over the top acting from the voice actors really tugged me into the series.

Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou is a parody series of the events that gets compressed into a middle school setting. Instead of a titan-slaying world, it’s a school for mini humans who co-exist next to the titan-school classrooms. What’s adorable the series is that fans of the original story will be able to pick out certain plot points that are similar in the two series but also laugh at the facetious ways in which key elements to the dark-apocalyptic titan story has been parodied. Overall this series is lighthearted, entertaining and endearing for any long-time fans of the manga or anime who are looking for more fan service or fun from their characters.

Things similar…

The walls protecting the little humans from the titans

Eren’s determination and fierce hate for the titans continues.

Mikasa still loves Eren (so much to the point that she tries to orchestrate a shojo high school protagonists bump into each other moment)

Mikasa isn’t any less beautiful in chibi form.

Jean falls in love with Mikasa when she breaks up a fight between Jean and Eren

Jean continues to derp and his arrogant tendencies become over-exaggerated for comic relief

Sasha continues to eat… and continues to take such pride in eating.

Things parodied and poked fun at…

The opening is hilariously high-pitched and colourful compared to the original sequence

Eren “losing something precious” to the titan. In the original series it’s his mother. In this series, it’s his bento lunch.

The titans eat bento lunches instead of actual humans (no deaths! YAY!!)

The Ymir and Christa ship is exaggerated.

Instead of swords, Eren uses giant stationary and/or broomsticks to fight the titans… but it doesn’t quite work out and he gets his cheese hamburger steak lunch eaten away.

CAN’T WAIT FOR LEVI AND HIS CREW TO APPEAR!!!! And we get Armin in the next episode too!!! 😀
