On his first day of junior high, Eren Yeager comes face-to-face with a titan—and has his lunch stolen! From that day on, he holds a grudge against titans for taking his favorite food from him, a cheeseburger, vowing to eliminate their kind once and for all. Along with his adoptive sister Mikasa Ackerman and their friend Armin Arlert, the trio traverse the halls of Titan Junior High, encountering familiar faces and participating in various extracurricular activities as part of the Wall Cleanup Club. A parody of the immensely popular parent series, Shingeki! Kyojin Chuugakkou places beloved characters as junior high school students, fighting to protect their lunches from gluttonous titans. – My Anime List

Overall, I love the idea that there is another universe where all of these characters were alive and well, and their biggest problems were talking to crushes, grades, and avoiding having their lunch stolen by titan bullies.
Parody spinoff Attack on Titan: Junior High gets a lot of mileage out of funny references to the original.
Attack on Titan: Junior High is refreshing and it’s lovely seeing the cast interact without an external – or internal – threat. Levi is the coolest kid in school, Eren makes a name for himself for being the one student – again – with an intense hatred for Titans, and each character has their own quirk which is blown up here for laughs. With much less brooding and an ending that wraps up the series’ events nicely, Junior High will slap a goofy grin on your face.

Overall, Attack on Titan: Junior High does not rank among the funnier recent anime comedies, resulting in an only sporadically successful effort. It’s good for at least a few laughs though, and seeing a much lighter interpretation of these characters’ struggles can be a nice breather in between watching episodes of the much grimmer second season that’s airing right now. In fact, that’s exactly how I recommend watching Attack on Titan: Junior High.
OVERALL THOUGHTS: Attack on Titan: Junior High won’t amaze hardcore Attack on Titan fans, however it is a pretty good “hold up” series for season two. That being said, this will likely be a one and done series, so it should still be given a decent shot.
My Anime List
Aside from that the anime is pretty good and is adorable, and is showing multiple sides of the Shingeki no kyojin cast.
It’s also showing how characters would interact if they were in our same time-line, at school! But it might get not interesting
The art is pretty good and is super-cute, and I liked the opening so much!
If you are interested in spin-off, cute and reference based anime you might like this!
This is a fun release, but sadly doesn’t bring anything new to the table, as it follows the same pattern as other shows set in high schools. Eventually the jokes become forced and quite repetitive.
Anime UK News
Whilst the reference gags will surely get a few laughs out of the Attack on Titan diehards, the majority of the humour being predictable and the lack of any memorable or laugh-out-loud moments make Attack on Titan Junior High a hard sell to anyone but the most devout of fans.
Once again, it simply boils down to the fact that I am not a fan of Attack on Titan. One of the more subtle comic aspects of Junior High is the way that it works plot elements from the original series into its own stories. Eren learning to use the wire gear is one example, and I’m sure that if you loved Attack on Titan, you’d appreciate it a lot more, would spot more of those references. For a casual Titan watcher like me, it just about bubbles over average, especially as there are a lot funnier anime out there. And I have to admit that I still haven’t forgiven Attack on Titan for not being a sci-fi war epic set on Saturn’s largest moon.
If you really love Attack on Titan and you’re really a huge fan of it, then this show can be a must-watch, because its got all of the Attack on Titan wrapped up in a several setting package. But if you are not one of those maniac fans, just leave this one! You will be only wasting your time with this series.
A series that relies completely on the cash in licence of Attack on Titan. There are some actual funny moments in Junior High but they are few and far between. Even hardcore fans of the original will find little and less to enjoy here. Well, at least for the creators the character designs are great and it’s evident that those designs alone will sell enough merchandise to the Attack on Titan fans to justify this series. Ultimately, the opening to the show becomes a perfect metaphor for the series as a whole. Linked Horizon takes its insanely catchy earworm Guren no Yumiya and absolutely butchers it, making it familiar but not enjoyable at all – much as this series does to its source material.
