Attack On Titan Chronicles 2020

Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020 (   進撃の巨人 Chronicle, Shingeki no Kyojin Chronicle) is the series’ fourth recap movie, retelling the first three seasons of the Attack on Titan series based on the manga by Hajime Isayama. The compilation film does recap the anime’s 59 episodes from seasons one to three.

NOTE: A recap of the popular anime series Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) from seasons 1-3.

Before Watching Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020, here is the storyline:

Season One Attack on Titan:

Audiences have been gripped right from that first Colossal Titan attack in the Shinganshina District, where the Smiling Titan ate Eren’s mother. After joining the Cadet Corps, Eren’s first battle is undeniably disastrous since he gets eaten by the Bearded Titan.

But when he lands in the Titans stomach he’s enraged at the carnage the monsters have caused, ultimately transforming into one himself and bursting out of the Bearded Titan to slaughter the attacking monsters.

Eren, Armin, and Mikasa all wind up joining the Scout Regiment under Levi Ackerman and Erwin Smith. But a new enemy emerges when the two pet Titans Hange Zoȅ was experimenting on are mysteriously murdered by someone using Omni-directional gear.

It’s later revealed that Annie is the devastating Female Titan, and uses a bladed ring to reveal herself when Erwin and Armin confront her. After remembering all the pain the Titans have caused, Eren fights her in his monstrous form and savagely beats her while causing absolute chaos in the Stohess District.

Before he can eat Annie, she crystalizes herself and is locked away by the Scout Regiment. The first season ends with a truly shocking revelation that there are Titans buried inside Wall Sina.

Season Two Attack on Titan: 

With the mystery of the Wall Titans looming over the heroes and the introduction of fascinating new characters, Attack on Titan’s second season undeniably upped the action. After the introduction of the Beast Titan and the devastation it can cause, the series delves into the political history of the world through Christa Lenz.

A flashback reveals Christa’s real name is Historia Reiss and she’s the illegitimate child of Rod Reiss, the King of Eldia.

During the shocking sixth episode, Reiner breaks down in exhaustion and reveals to Eren that he’s the Armoured Titan and Bertholdt is the terrifying Colossal Titan that kick-started this whole saga for the audience.

As the Scouts fight, Titans being thrown by Reiner’s Armoured Titan, Eren winds up facing the Smiling Titan that ate his mother way back at the beginning of the series. In his anger, he unlocks a mysterious ability called the Founding Titan, allowing Eren to control any and all Titans. He uses it on those nearby and forces them to eat the Smiling Titan.

That’s definitely one way to get revenge. The second season ends with the Beast Titan on Wall Maria while a mysterious blonde man says “Not just yet.” Oh, the suspense!

Season Three Attack on Titan:

The first half of the third season sees Commander Erwin and Squad Levi try to overthrow the corrupt royal Government headed by Rod Reiss since Historia is the rightful heir to the throne. Meanwhile, Eren learns the shocking truth about his father, Grisha is the one who turned him into a Titan in his home basement and a buried memory reveals Eren quickly ate his father after that first transformation.

The Beast Titan is dramatically revealed to be Zeke Jaeger, Eren’s half-brother – who claims to be a victim of their father, Grisha. He’s trying to capture Eren so Marley has the Coordinate power to control Titans. Is this the most shocking familial reveal since Darth Vader?

Possibly. During the same battle to take back the Shinganshina District, Armin distracts Bernholdt’s Colossal Titan so Eren can sneakily rip the villain out of his monstrous form. It comes at a price as Armin’s burnt alive and close to death. But after he’s revived using a serum of Titan spinal fluid, Armin shifts into a Titan and eats a limbless Bertholdt. Meaning he now holds the power to turn into the Colossal Titan.

It’s also explained through flashbacks that the technologically advanced nation of Marley is the true villain of the entire series, unleashing the Titans on Paradis Island in revenge for being oppressed by the Eldian Empire.

Meanwhile, the first Reiss King controlled millions of Colossal Titans with the Founding Titan power, building the walls on Paradis Island. He vowed to flatten the Earth with the Colossal Titans if the island was ever attacked… But he never actually intended to use them.

It all culminates in a bittersweet ending as the Survey Corps go on another expedition and find themselves standing at a beautiful ocean. It’s undermined by the realization that the war against Marley has only just begun.

One of the best recaps I’ve watched and it does the job well for condensing over fifty episodes into a two-hour movie. It has an excellent soundtrack, beautiful visuals (of course), and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit and scene.

I think the pacing for revisiting the whole political side of the show really helped clear up much of the confusion I felt

Also, despite what some people have said, this is not meant to be a Movie that will catch a new viewer up to the series or explain every detail again. This is purely a recap to help jog viewers memories and should be seen only as a recap 🙂 ‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020

The movie is a RECAP of the whole show up to the last episode of s3pt2. I repeat it’s a recap meant to refresh the important events of the story.

This movie’s goal wasn’t to present AoT in a different way rather it was to convey what already happened in a summarised way and it did well in that aspect.

So, if you are a fan waiting for s4 and have a problem remembering some key moments of the story, this movie is for you. Again, I repeat, the purpose of this movie wasn’t meant for enjoyment.

Therefore, Only watch if you wanna remember the key points of the story up to season 3 part 2. Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020

A disjointed but useful recap before season 4 only if you don’t have time for a rewatch

This should just be watched as a refresher if you’ve forgotten a lot of what happened when you first watched the show and need to rewatch the key events for a better understanding.

Don’t watch this if you haven’t watched the anime series, it skips all the fights and clumps parts of important scenes in a sequence like an info dump with no sense of cohesion for a normal movie.

It isn’t really enjoyable to watch as it doesn’t show any sequence of events properly and is just trying to jog your memory on every important scene that took place.

The pacing of the anime is near perfect besides the female titan arc so the animes are the ONLY way to experience the story. This movie just saves people from searching “attack on titan recap season 1/2/3 on youtube”

Before I started watching this show, I couldn’t imagine why it is rated so high. After I finished the first season, I understood. And now, having watched the third season I don’t understand, why it isn’t rated even higher!

Truly a masterpiece, and deserves to be mentioned on the same page as other fantasy war epics like Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. (I dare to say this is even better than those two.) There are countless twists and turns, shocking revelations and heartbreaking moments throughout the series, spiced with great voice acting, beautiful visuals, and on top of all: a more than perfect, stunning soundtrack, thanks to Hiroyuki Sawano.

The story is brilliantly written and does not slow down, not even for a bit. It keeps growing bigger and bigger, while you will find yourself tied to your chair, as you can’t watch only one or two episodes. Behind the plot and the action, there is also deeper meaning about war, humanity, and questions about moral dilemmas.

Thought-provoking, exciting, and most of all a masterpiece of our time! Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020

Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020 

Fan Theory About The Story Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020: Why did Dina Fritz eat Eren’s mom in Attack on Titan?

In contrast to some people’s opinions, I believe that this event wasn’t a coincidence.

We know that Dina Fritz and Carla Yaeger were both the wives of Grisha, however, the obviously no reason that Dina would be attracted to Carla at all. Right?

Well, yeah you’re right, but there is another factor to consider. Dina was seen to be waiting outside the walls, even before the Marleyan Shifters had arrived, supposedly drawn to the walls, which is not unique considering how many titans do this, but I have a theory.

Considering how most, if not all pure Titans, such as Dina, are Marleyan, they would be very knowledgeable about the habits and science of titans, are at least somewhat aware. The Eldians in the Marleyan Internment camps are specifically kept there to become titans after all. So what if they knew eating shifters returned you to a human form?

My theory about Attack on Titan Chronicle 2020 is, that whatever you believe in, your desires, priorities, and beliefs, stay with you throughout your Titan life. Since the Titans knew of the way to reverse the Titan transformation as humans, would it be too much of a stretch to consider that they ate humans in order to at least get a chance to become human again, to at least give themselves a chance to eat a shifter?

More evidence of this is an OVA where a Scout was confronted by a titan who could talk and prayed to her as though she was Ymir, the supposed Goddess, and Founder of all Titans and Eldians.

The idea behind it is that the person had been a very devout worshipper of Ymir, and a Restorationist, and thought the girl was Ymir, as she very much resembled her in appearance. It does show us that Titans may retain some semblance of their former self.

So back to the question. Here’s something for you to think about; what if Dina, being such a loving wife, was drawn to Grisha’s ‘path’. This is another idea, an abstract concept, where all Eldians are linked in some way, by some paths.

We see that in Rod Reiss’s titan perspective, that the nearest city had been glowing, which I interpreted as the Titans being able to somewhat perceive, and be drawn to, the presence of paths.

If Dina was able to be drawn to where Grisha had frequented, as Grisha had been within the walls not too long before, it would increase our chances of her eating Carla. An even more extreme idea is that she drew nearer to Eren’s blood, of course, half his genetic information being from his Dad.

So conclusion? I believe that Dina was drawn to Grisha, and by extension Eren, due to their familial links, desires, and paths, which may seem far-fetched, but Attack on Titan was never that simple.

Deca-Dence 2020

Deca-Dence 2020 Storyline:

The series is the newest big release in the post-apocalyptic anime genre, with the characters living in a world four centuries in the future. The series has commentary on climate change, pollution, and the ever-popular topic of cyborgs and robots in anime about the future. It is set in the late 2400s, and air pollution has reached a level that is actually lethal to humans who breathe it. It is set in the late 2400s, and air pollution has reached a level that is actually lethal to humans who breathe it.

Most everyone lives in a fortress city called Deca-Dence 2020, which was built under a giant dome that protects humans from pollution on the rest of the planet. The city is essentially a big entertainment facility with its own government, with tasks carried out mostly by cyborgs. Outside of the domed city are creatures called Gadoll, which have contributed to much of the destruction of humanity.

The few survivors band together to build a mobile fortress known as Deca-Dence 2020, from which they can mount their resistance to the enemy. Natsume has wanted to be a soldier since she was a child, but she is instead sent to work under the apathetic armorer Kaburagi. One day, however, they become embroiled in a battle with the Gadoll while working, and Natsume witnesses Kaburagi take down one Gadoll after another.

Director Yuzuru Tachikawa and producer Takuya Tsunoki worked together on a Madhouse anime, Death Parade. The two enjoyed working together and collaborating, and they wanted to try their hand at creating something original together. From that came the idea to do Deca-Dence 2020.

They wanted to create a series Deca-Dence 2020 featuring humans fighting against monsters. But they also didn’t want it to just be about that, and so they set out to give it a more interesting setting, focusing specifically on the concept of the world being a construct, created by somebody or something and operated as a corporation by the people who created it.

  • Natsume (ナツメ)
  • Kaburagi (カブラギ)
  • Fei (フェイ)
  • Fennel (フェンネル, Fenneru)
  • Linmei (リンメイ, Rinmei)
  • Kurenai (クレナイ)

  • Sarkozy (サルコジ, Sarukoji)

  • Mikey (マイキー, Maikī)
  • Gadoll (ガドル, Gadoru)

Natsume (ナツメ)

Natsume is one of the main protagonists in Deca-Dence 2020. Natsume is a young girl with short ginger hair and blue eyes. She is cheerful, energetic, determined, and reckless. She likes to look on the bright side, and never gives up on her dreams.

Her normal outfit consists of a short-sleeved white shirt, green pants with a yellow belt, and brown open-toed sandals. She has had a prosthetic right arm since she lost her real arm as a child.

She lost her father and her right arm after a Gadoll attack when she was a child. She dreams of joining The Power and fighting the Gadoll as a warrior. However, the powers that be doubt her abilities, and she ends up working under Kaburagi as a sanitation worker and armor repairer.

Kaburagi (カブラギ)

Kaburagi is one of the main protagonists in Deca-Dence 2020.

Kaburagi is quiet and cold when you first meet him, but is very kind-hearted and caring underneath. He is impulsive and does not often make plans, preferring to jump right into the action. He has a strong moral compass and often makes the right choice guided by a gut feeling.

Kaburagi is very protective of Natsume, and eventually of all the Tankers, and is determined to fight for them no matter the cost. A veteran armor repairer, he is blunt, surly, and kindhearted.

He was once a great warrior, but years of punishment from the Power have broken his spirit and he spends his days apathetically. However, his state of mind starts to change through his encounter with Natsume, who never gives up on her dreams.

Kaburagi as a Human Avatar in Deca-Dence 2020

Kaburagi is a middle-aged man sporting greying black hair, which he slicks back, and facial hair on his chin. He wears a tucked-in wide-necked short-sleeved shirt (with the sleeves tucked up and buttoned) with two buttons on the front. He wears olive wide pants and is tucked into brown boots. He has a black belt tied and a leather bracelet on his wrist.

Kaburagi as a Cyborg Form in Deca-Dence 2020

In his cyborg form, Kaburagi is very short and cylindrical. He has a rectangular faceplate, and a brown and mint-green color scheme. He wears a red jet pack on his back. He also has brown spikes coming off his head, giving the appearance of spikey hair.

Natsume and Kaburagi in Deca-Dence 2020:

Why does Kaburagi Care about Natsume?

It has everything to do with what she symbolizes as a person – a spirit of free thought, self-determination, bravery under fire in combat, resilience, dutiful work ethic, self-sacrifice, and resistance to a system which seems preordained and refusal to acquiesce to the bred and ingrained pessimism and fatalism of the system’s other subjects. I imagine to Kaburagi most of the other cyborgs and conditioned humans seem like totally dead inside dispirited slaves.

He doesn’t agree with the system or its aims so at first, he was just using her as a proxy to see how far someone else who refused to bow down in spite of their programming could fight back and push the system. Maybe just for cynical entertainment at first without any real hope or expectation behind it. And then he vicariously began experiencing a sense of hope and possibility.

There are minor indications of liking her as a person apart from that, as a friend or teammate and possibly in a paternal way – he wants to protect her selfless innocence and naivete since he knows well she doesn’t have the full picture of the extent of what she’s up against. But what’s portrayed in the progression of the series seems to suggest those feelings developed more recently. He first came to respect her as a person for what she represented and only after that developed more personal attachments.

The series is necessarily violent, considering that it’s specifically about humans fighting monsters that have decimated the human population. But the creators didn’t want Deca-Dence 2020 to be an over-the-top violent anime. For that reason, they avoided making anything look too violent and instead went for something a little bit cuter, even with regard to the Gadoll, which are responsible for a lot of bloodsheds.

They were originally designed to look more like spiders and dragons, but they dialed it back to make them into something cute but also horrible-looking. The idea was to create them to look like something the cute cyborgs might create.

Like most good stories, the relationships between the main characters are almost more important than anything that’s actually happening in the world around them. The relationship between Natsume and Kaburagi, a former warrior who now repairs armor, is at the heart of the story and is the most important part of the narrative.

Deca-Dence 2020 Reviews:

Sep 23, 2020
Omegeria (All reviews)

Alright, this is my favorite anime of all time, obviously, a big statement to start a review with. I obviously don’t expect anyone else to think so highly of the series, but I genuinely do think it is a masterpiece. I also don’t like breaking anime down by how MAL does reviews numerically, but eh I’ll give it a go.

Story: 10
This is a fast-paced anime, it’s a 12 episode original. Keep that in mind, personally, I think the pacing is well done. Every episode has its own direction in terms of what it wants to do if that makes sense, but it’s still under one story. The story itself looks simple during the first episode, but all I’ll say is that there’s A LOT more to it.

Many philosophical concepts are explored in the story, which I won’t get into but if you go into the story with a philosophical lens you’ll find a surprisingly high amount of stuff for 12 episodes. There are some central themes that are well-focused and explored throughout the run of the anime, and we get good conclusions to them when needed and others are left more open-ended when that is appropriate.

Art: 8
I’m not gonna act like it’s some Ufotable or Bones stuff because it’s not, but the art is still well-done. There are basically two main distinct art styles in Deca-Dence 2020, and it throws some people off, think of Mob Psycho 100 or Masaaki Yuasa works. But the animation itself is pretty damn well done, has really great aerial combat(this is from the same studio who made Tanya the Evil for context), and transitions between the two styles damn well. The directing is also fantastic; episodes 5, 8, and 10 stand out a ton in this regard.

Sound: 10
I don’t like talking about something as obviously subjective as music/sound in an analytical sense, but I’ll say that the soundtrack was awesome and used very well, with many memorable tracks(especially the ED wowie). Voice acting was on point, and sound effects were well done. I don’t have any flaws with it, fantastic job. Also, Koyasu Takehito has a big role in doing what he does best, sounding evil. Can’t go wrong with that.

Character: 10
Our two main characters of Natsume and Kaburagi are FANTASTIC and definitely carry in this department. They have a wonderful relationship that I can best describe as a shared inspiration. Both of our characters develop tons both due to each other and their general environment, and it feels very genuine.

Natsume in particular has some moments that absolutely blew me away. The rest of our cast is obviously not as explored since this is a short anime, but some such as Minato and Fei bring interesting perspectives and make for some great dialogue. Our antagonistic force is also very well done with reason to their actions, and we come to a quite fitting resolution.

Enjoyment: 11
I seriously still can’t believe how much this anime appealed to me. Obviously, the enjoyment rating can vary person by person, as can honestly any of the other ratings. I’ve literally cried just from thinking of how much I love this anime, on more occasions than I can count. Episodes 5, 7, and 10 are literally my three favorite Deca-Dence 2020 episodes of all time.

The anime also made me laugh a bunch of times, it’s certainly good at being goofy when it wants to be. So yeah, I enjoyed it a ton. If you’re super stuck up about me rating enjoyment as an 11, then just think of it as a 10 doesn’t make a difference for me. Deca-Dence 2020 is a Fantastic anime regardless 🙂

Marinate1016 (All reviews)

It’s rare to get a good original anime these days. Most of what gets made are Light Novel and manga adaptations. Yet, Deca-Dence 2020 managed to arrive out of nowhere and give us 12 weeks of greatness. Unfortunately, it was always going to be difficult to compete with Re: Zero airing at the same time and on the same day, but for those of us who did get a chance to view the show, we saw something special.

From the same studio that brought us Youjo Senki, Deca-Dence 2020 is unlike anything I’ve personally ever seen, and the closest I could compare it to plot-wise would be Guren Lagann mixed with Mortal Engines, Shingeki no Kyojin, and MMORPG elements. It’s a world where humanity must overcome impossible odds to survive and is an enjoyable watch that blends unique characters with a rich and lively sci-fi world.

As you’d expect from studio NUT, the animation, art, and quality are all top-notch. My only complaint in that department would be the CG at the end of the series, particularly the final fight, which I found to be pretty bad. Other than that, actions sequences, OST’s and character models are consistently good.

Lastly, the show also manages to break the anime original curse by having a solid ending that is consistent with the themes presented throughout. So often anime original shows will have a great start and fall off at the end. Not this time.

Deca-Dence 2020 has definitely been one of the best shows of the year and it’s a shame it was overshadowed due to its release time and date, but I can assure you it is worth a watch and will probably not disappoint you. Deca-Dence 2020 gets 8 gears out of 10 from me.

 8/10

extremely underrated.

akomapochuff19 August 2020

Sigh. I wonder why this show is so underrated. Maybe it’s lacking in surface appeal, or what I love most about it is not what people often appreciate most… regardless.

I had to review this show after the sixth episode though I thought to do it beforehand. This show has an exceptionally rich story imo. There are so many co-relations with our world, with the ways things are, with the future.

I am not going to spoil it but if you love Philosophy, Religion or Mythology you might really be able to appreciate it. Give it two episodes. It’s also very heartwarming and inspiring. I am very grateful to everyone who brought this work about.
 10/10

I smell potential here

kwesib-3217928 August 2020
Why is Deca-Dence 2020 everyone’s punching bag this year? People are judging the series right from the trailer. Many are calling it generic, Attack on Titan copy failure, cliche, and very disappointing terms. This series is in fact one of the most generic we’ve longed for a while.
I don’t want to spoil anything but in the first episode, the plot goes by; humanity is pushed to the brink by dangerous giant creatures as the destiny of humanity falls into the hands of a specially trained group of humans. To be frank, Darling in the Franxxx, Evangelion, Attack on Titan, to mention a few have all used a similar formula.
But in the case of the ‘real’ and actual plot of Deca-Dence 2020, this series is one of a kind with a unique story that marks the peculiarity of the show from being an attack on Titan clone. Right from the 2nd episode, a major plot twist will totally make you take this anime very seriously. Everything you believed about the plot is not actually whole or even true.
I heard Deca-Dence 2020 doesn’t have source material, no wonder there isn’t a strong fan base to counter the bias towards this anime. In terms of the characters, this anime offers non-cliche anime characters you usually see in shounen titles. Some characters may be generic at first sight but as the plot progresses, you begin to see a whole 3-dimensional figure of the characters.
I believe anime Deca-Dence 2020 can really hit in and make a hit against the odds. Just give the show a chance past the first three or episodes.

Interesting Facts about the Anime Deca-Dence 2020:

  • “Gadol” means huge/big in Hebrew
  • Creators of Deca-Dence 2020 worked previously on another anime called Death Parade
  • The Gadol Creatures doesn´t look violent
  • Produced by NUT. NUT is a relatively new animation studio, only founded in 2017.
  • The looks of cyborg designs are soft and organic while still looking robotic.

The series is necessarily violent, considering that it’s specifically about humans fighting monsters that have decimated the human population. But the creators didn’t want Deca-Dence 2020 to be an over-the-top violent anime.

For that reason, they avoided making anything look too violent and instead went for something a little bit cuter, even with regard to the Gadoll, which are responsible for a lot of bloodsheds.

They were originally designed to look more like spiders and dragons, but they dialed it back to make them into something cute but also horrible-looking. The idea was to create them to look like something the cute cyborgs might create.
