ATTACK ON TITAN

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titans.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air...

I haven't watched the newest one yet but I loooove this show. ;o; It definitely slowed down after the first episode but I'm really looking forward to watching the people finally meet up with the Titans again!

I've really been enjoying SnK. I read the manga a couple of months ago and it is certainly full of twists/ lots of gory fun.

The animation style really separates it from most of the same-y looking shows recently and the high-action scenes with the 3D maneuver gear have been spectacular so far. From what I've seen its not as graphic in terms of the heavy gore but I guess that only to be expected. I really do like the fact that they've pushed up the training arc to the beginning from what was initially a flashback in chapter 14/15 iirc. It will really help to cement characters like Sasha, Annie, Bert and Reiner for people who are new to the series whereas in the manga they're just sort of... there from chapter 3 onwards.

Overall, I definitely think it is one of the picks of the season and I'm really looking forward to more.

I'm watching it but I somehow cannot get myself into it totally...
I'll probably read manga but with all other awesome anime in this season, this one is just... there.

    Yeeeeees! :D I love this show! The animation is superb, music is epic and that opening...pure awesome. :D
    The first episode was a great introduction to the series. :D I might check the manga some time but for now Ill just concentrate on the anime.
    I have only one problem with the anime...its so hard to avoid spoilers. :'D

      OMG, WHY DIDN'T I SAW THIS BEFORE?????

      SNK is the by far the best anime in this season and I think it will surpass SAO. Really enjoying it and I even finished the manga in a day LOL. This was the first I was like this the excitement was just awesome!

      Too Bad the next episode will be a letdown to some fans. :/

      This show... is intense. I've never watched a show that literally gave me goosebumps all over my arms and made me teary eyed within 15 seconds. I really like Eren's determination; I can see some similarities to SAO, too.

      Episode 5
      Spoiler:
      What was that? I feel like puking.

        Episode 6 and 7 will be a comeback and will have you OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG for the rest of the day LOL.

        Spoiler:
        I do think this is a big letdown for the people watching the series since the protagonist dies in episode 5 LOL. We will just have to wait for the next episodes for AWESOMENESS! :3


        And the new chapter in the manga will probably be released next week oh yeah. xD

          Idk, maybe If I haven't read the manga I'll have goosebumps with the new episodes. Now I remember having a lot of those will reading the manga especially when they got trapped in Castle Utgard. :3

            Scary? Watch episode 5 since the eng sub is out! :3 There's some things that have been added in the anime that's no in the manga. Like the confrontation of Commander Pixis and this fat lord guy. xD

                Oh wow, I didn't know there was a thread about this.
                After watching it for the first time yesterday I got really hooked to it.
                The intensity is indescribable, I can barely contain it.
                And the gore, of course I wouldn't forget the gore.
                And I'm really looking forward to more gore to new episodes

                    Is this a shounen? Seinen? Is the gore level comparable to one in bersker? Because stuff I've seen in the bersek manga has yet to be surpassed by any manga in terms of shock value. That manga, although more than 20 years old, made me read it for 6-7 hours per day for 3 days.

                    Is the story in this good? Or does it merely rely on gore and shock value to get attention? How long is the manga? Is it complete?

                    Sorry about all the questions. This anime intrigues me. Hope it doesn't turn out like SAO - all hype no substance. It was a decent anime. The SnK OP was awesome, though.

                      It's Shounen, I don't know maybe the gore is greater since I haven't read Berserk that much. The story is really awesome and it doesn't rely on gore and shock value that much, it has it's own ways. :3

                      Up to now the manga is 44 Chapters and the manga is not complete I do not think it will be completed anytime soon until Eren reaches the basement.

                      NO, IT WILL NOT TURN LIKE SAO. THIS ANIME IS AS AWESOME AS ME. C:

                      Yes, the OP is awesome I downloaded the track after hearing it the first time LOL.

                        I've only seen the first two Episodes, waiting on a friend to get their internet back before watching more. Honestly, I wasn't totally hooked and found the giant wall a little off-putting, I mean humans were running for their lives from Giants and then suddenly they've build a gigantic series of walls and can self-sustain life inside of them..

                        What's the story got going for it, to keep me interested? I'd be happy to hear some arguments in its favour (though without spoiling Episode 3+ please!).

                          How can you be not hooked?

                          Well the location where they built the walls is just perfect. It has trees (lots of them), many rivers it also has a lake, and the place has a great amount of natural gas in it making life really perfect.

                          If you just watch episode 3 you will know it and you will be hooked more to watch the next episodes and maybe even read the manga like what happened to me.

                            I suppose I should overlook the wall, considering I've seen far more far-fetched things in other Anime xD. That said, I'm definitely going to watch the entire show, I just wasn't grabbed like everybody else seems to be, at least with the first two Episodes. Looking forward to the rest!

That manga, although more than 20 years old, made me read it for 6-7 hours per day for 3 days.

                            Is the story in this good? Or does it merely rely on gore and shock value to get attention? How long is the manga? Is it complete?

                            Sorry about all the questions. This anime intrigues me. Hope it doesn't turn out like SAO - all hype no substance. It was a decent anime. The SnK OP was awesome, though.
                            Its run in a shounen magazine but it I feel like it straddles the line between the two demographics (but ultimately tending towards shounen). It does rely on high-action and 'teamwork' like a regular shounen but it has an incredible emphasis on storytelling and world building like seinen. The line between shounen and seinen can be pretty damn blurry at times so I wouldn't put too much stock in trying to sort it out when there are decent arguments for both sides of the debate. The only thing that can be agreed upon is that it isn't for young children.

                            Well if you want to compare a series' gore to Bezerker then you're going to come up on the losing side every time haha. So far the anime hasn't been nearly as graphic as the manga (camera cuts away, blood splatters etc) but its is certainly more violent and bloody than your average anime. I'm guessing but this is to help push DVD/ Blu-Ray sales so it isn't restricted to 18+ but it is slightly disappointing nontheless. While I'm not going to post any examples (cuz gore) I can confirm that in the manga there are multiple instances of people being decapitated, amputated, squished into the ground, being killed by centripetal force and having horses thrown at them. Its amazing the multitude of ways the human body can be destroyed, isn't it? :3c

                            Well there's a slight debate about the story but from most people I've talked to they've agreed that its good. The writer really loves to keep people guessing so there are a lot of questions flying around that need answering even to this day. There are a few sub-plots but it mainly runs with the main story and from my opinion every chapter has either been focused on advancing the story or building the world with little to no filler in between. The writer has been criticised by some for appearing to pull some resolutions out of his ass, but most people can counter this by referencing earlier segments of the story that show a great deal of foreshadowing with hindsight (notably when it comes to the female deviant arc).

                            Definitely read the first couple of chapters or watch the current episodes if you're even slightly interested though. I've enjoyed the thrill-ride and I'm eagerly awaiting for for the next episode. It has my recommendation if that means anything :P



                            Also, how could it turn into SAO when it has Sasha?

                            Okay, your response made me give it a shot, Fuji. I'm glad I did. It deserves all the credit it's getting. First episode was intense. Animation was top notch and so was the voice acting. Really wish to see what happens next. :O
