The Attack on Titan anime’s an excellent one, with a great storyline and intriguing characters. Even though the show features some breathtaking action sequences and emotional moments, let’s not forget about the humorous scenes that had us snickering. Whether it be Sasha Blouse’s disregard of laws or Hange’s fascination with titans, the funny moments lighten the mood during some very dark times. While Sasha Blouse is obviously the queen of comedy, Hange has her share of humorous scenes as well. So, with that in mind, what are the best humorous moments from the show? Well, it’s time to list the top 5 funniest moments of Attack on Titan Season 1!
5. Sasha Blouse Reveals “Borrowed” Meat to Her Friends
Oh, Sasha Blouse, can nothing satisfy your hunger? Well, who could have thought that after the potato incident, she’d go off and “borrow” some meat? I surely didn’t, yet I was quick to giggle during the moment she revealed the stolen meat to her comrades. While she’s able to control herself initially, she quickly starts drooling when thinking about spreading that meat across some bread. Given, even I wouldn’t say no to a good sandwich but Sasha Blouse’s excitement was on another level. She seemed possessed when speaking about the meat, even laughing maniacally. In addition, it seemed like she was having an orgasm just thinking about a sandwich, making this scene as uncomfortable as it’s humorous. It’s short and sweet, straight to the point and well-structured. 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 Kirstein admire Mikasa’s beauty, a few seconds later he’s wiping his faith in humanity off on Connie Springer. But why? Well, he witnessed his crush walking alongside a young man he doesn’t like, named Eren Yeager. So, Jean Kirstein immediately jumps to the conclusion that the two are romantically involved. Keep in mind, a few moments earlier, he actually buried the hatchet with Eren and shook his hand. However, after seeing Mikasa walk together with Eren Yeager, he wipes that same hand off on Connie Springer’s back. Jean Kirstein metaphorically wipes away the truce he made with Eren, together with his faith/trust in humanity. For some, this moment is easy to grasp but for others it might need some explaining. Simply put, the subtlety makes it funny, with a good amount of depth to it, easily able to fuel a good giggle!
3. Hange Sees Eren’s Magnificent Transformation
When Eren fails to transform on command, he accidentally creates his titan arm when picking up a spoon, resulting in Levi’s crew getting ready to cut him down. However, this intense moment quickly turns humorous when Hange Zoe comes running towards the titan arm, drooling with excitement. Together with the desperation in her voice, Hange makes this moment as heartwarming as it’s humorous. Then, as she proceeds to touch the titan arm, she burns herself and does an epic slide. While she’s in agony from the burns, she throws her hands in the air, almost as if it was worth it. Together with the childish stomping when the titan arm disintegrates, this moment has some over-the-top and humorous concepts. In all honesty, things come together well, making this one of the funniest moments of Attack on Titan Season 1!
2. Keith Shadis Rips Into the Trainees of the 104th Squad
Considering that this is the longest humorous scene in the first season, there’s ample time to set-up jokes. Mixing both physical and verbal comedy, this lengthy sequence has its share of funny moments, all because of the temperament of Keith Shadis. So, when the instructor of the 104th Squad starts ripping into the trainees, he quickly dismantles Armin Arlert and Thomas Wagner. While saying nasty things is expected, who could have predicted that Keith Shadis would headbutt Jean Kirstein? While it was quite shocking, it sparked the beginning of some truly hilarious interactions in this lengthy sequence. Shortly thereafter, Marco Bott is made to look like a fool and Connie Springer’s picked up by his head? Well, all of this is essentially leading up the showdown between Shadis and Blouse, with the ending marking the birth of “Potato Girl”. Together with a passionate speech and a failed peace-offering from Blouse, this scene comes together seamlessly when the two speak! Honestly, these hilarious interactions created a chain of funny moments that deserve a spot on this list, as one of the funniest moments of Attack on Titan Season 1!
1. Sasha Blouse Goes Berserk Over Bread
Honestly, this moment is reminiscent of a horror movie, isn’t it? Sasha Blouse’s eyes turn bright pink, she darts for a piece of bread and is see growling, looking possessed. She then quickly strikes a fierce pose, with the loaf of bread stady in her hand, leading to Blouse hilariously asking Krista Lenz if she’s a deity! I mean, who can blame her? Krista appeared out of nowhre and came to Sasha’s aid, following the punishment from the “Potato Incident”. This leads to a hilarious interaction between the two, rounded beautifully by Sasha going to town on the bread. While it’s obvious that the pink eyes and unrealistic leap were merely cosmetic, they spice things up and make Sasha’s oddly impressive screaming more humorous. Additionally, Sasha’s Japanese voice actress (Yu Kobayashi) deserve some credit for making this the funniest moment of Attack on Titan Season 1!
