The Attack on Titan anime’s an excellent one, often seen as grim, dramatic and suspensful- all of which are positives. Understandably, the show is known for it’s superb action scenes and tear-jerking emotional moments. However, we shouldn’t forget about the humorous scenes that had us snickering. Given, there’s not much to choose from, but it’s appropriate to lift moments that genuinely gave way to laughter. Whether it’s Sasha’s disregard of laws or Hange’s titan obsession, the jokes lighten the mood during some truly dark times. While Sasha Blouse is obviously the comedic relief, Hange has her share of hilarious moments as well. Therefore, it would be interesting to know which moments did you think were funny? Anyhow, here’s my list of Attack on Titan funny moments from season 1. I hope you enjoy!
5. Sasha Blouse Reveals “Borrowed” Meat to Her Friends
Oh, Sasha Blouse, can nothing satisfy your hunger? Well, who could have thought that following the potato incident, she’d go off and “borrow” some meat? I surely didn’t, yet I was quick to laugh when she revealed the stoled good to her comrades. While she’s able to control herself initially, she soon starts drooling when thinking about spreading that meat across some bread. Given, even I wouldn’t say no to a good sandwich, yet Sasha’s excitement was on another level. She seemed possessed when speaking about the meat, even laughing maniacally. In all honesty, it seemed like she was having an orgasm just thinking about a sandwich, making this scene as awkward as it’s humorous. It’s short and sweet, straight to the point and well-structure, making it a noteworthy comedic moment. It’s worthy of a few laughs, that’s for damn sure!
4. Jean Kirstein Wipes His Faith In Humanity off on Connie Springer
One moment we see Jean admire Mikasa’s beauty, a few second later he’s wiping his faith in humanity off on Connie Springer. But why? Well, he witnessed his crush walking together alongside Eren Yeager. Therefore, Jean Kirstein immediately jumped to the conclusion that the two were romantically involved. Keep in mind, moments earlier, he buried the hatchet with Eren, shaking his hand. However, when he sees the two of them walking together, he wipes that same hand on Connie’s back. In turn, metaphorically wiping away the truce he made with Eren, together with his faith/trust in humanity. While the last part is obviously an exaggeration, it’s the way Jean explains himself that makes it humorous in a subtle way. At the same time, some might’ve caught it instantly, other’s perhaps blinked and missed it completely? However, the subtlety makes it funny, easily able to fuel a good giggle!
3. Hange Witnesses Eren Yeager’s Transformation
When Eren failed to transform on command, he shockingly enough created his titan arm by accident, when picking up a spoon. With Levi’s crew ready to cut him down in size, Hange’s entrance into the scene turns it from dead serious to comedic. She literally comes running towards the titan arm, drooling with excitement, and her reaction makes it as endearing as hilarious. However, she burns herself when touching the arm, making her do an epic slide and throw her arms in the air, as if it was worth it. While it’s a bit over-the-top and silly, it’s also made adorable by Hange’s stomping when the arm disintegrates. In turn, it’s the little things that make this scene humorous, with good timing and great voice acting being the highlights!
2. Keith Shadis Rips Into the Trainees of the 104th Squad
This chain of scoling is a sight to behold, mixing physical and verbal comedy, with enough time to set up jokes properly. It’s made amusing by the abundance of comedic interactions, stacked one after another, with Keith Shadis as the catalyst. Therefore, it’s difficult to laugh at Jean Kirstein receiving a headbutt, without carrying that laughter over to Marco Bott’s humiliation. Not only were these moments well animated, the angles made them funnier than they should’ve been. It’s a sequence followed by Connie Springer getting picked up by his head, and while merely cosmetic, it was absolutely humorous.
In all fairness, it’s merely foreplay for the eventual showdown between Shadis and Blouse, with the conclusion giving birth to Potato Girl. So, when Sasha get’s caught with a potato, she suggests a peace offering – half of potato for instructor Shadis? That obviously didn’t end well, leading to a funny trade of words, which works much like a climax of this entire humorous moment. However, it’s the overall structure, well-chosen angles and the physical element that makes it hilarious. In turn, it’s worthy of a re-watch, time and time again!
1. Sasha Blouse Goes Crazy Over Bread
This hilarious moment starts off much like a horror movie! Suddenly, we see Sasha’s eyes change color, she darts towards a person and then growls on all fours, looking completely possessed. So, what happened? Is this The Excorcist? No, it’s a false alarm, as it’s Sasha Blouse demonstrating her Gremlin-like abilities when tired and famished. Not to mention, the bright pink eyes and unrealistic leap were merely cosmetic, so she’s fine, right? It’s not long before she strikes a fierce pose, with bread in-hand. So, with exhaustion and delusion setting in, Sasha mistakes Krista for God, grabbing her and asking if she’s actually God. I mean, who can blame her? Krista appeared out of nowhere, coming to Sasha’s aid in time of hunger! While that’s a major stretch, I’m just trying to think like Potato Girl, alright?
Overall, it’s the funny animations and humorous dialogue that makes it downright hilarious. However, Sasha Blouse’s Japanese voice actor deserves praise for her performance, selling the moment with her amazing delivery. In conclusion, it earns the first spot on this list – top 5 Attack on Titan funny moments (Season 1)!
