Shingeki no Kyojin - 08: I Can Hear a Heart Beating / Defense of Trost (pt 4)

Title:Shingeki no Kyojin
Episode:08: I Can Hear a Heart Beating / Defense of Trost (pt 4)
I swear, watching episode eight made me feel that this show is better than every other show this season combined. Events take a totally bizarre turn, which has no scientific explanation whatsoever, but it is done in such an awesomely cool manner that I was eating it up. The terror is palpable, there's a roller coaster ride of action and danger, and the end result is cathartic. This show really knows how to shake your faith in the established norms of anime storytelling, but doesn't quite go too far, and become seriously disturbing. Other than the preview of episode nine, I really had no idea where the story would go next, in a good way. This was another episode in which I prayed it wouldn't end. ShinKyo is far and away the best series of the season, IMO.
