I thought that was really cool, a neat way to use The Girl Who Leapt Through Time screen-caps
I thought it was funny that Makoto's body passed for both girls and boys as a base
(of course it was adjusted a little, but still)

I have faith that she and Levi will take her down, because both are really pissed and the titan seems to be in a weakened state. I know Eren is still alive, and I think the reason she's running is to finish him off somewhere elsyou know that most likely somebody will die after looking at Mikasas dead eyes but Levi stopped her, he owned that titan by himself with his fast ninja-like skill not giving a chance to harden her skin... though she deserved to die or at least her human body inside being captured alive, because it was sad to see families waiting for their relatives killed by her now that the 57th expedition failed too ;(
passing to a comic relief not only ep.22 was subbed but also the second special

guess armin wasn't the only smart one in the group... i watched both 23 and 24 and i was left stunned
finally some fast paced action and annie gets what she deserves... or it seems that way. for some reason i believe that the other two titans (armored and colossal) will make an appearance and make everything a mess (just my opinion not a spoiler the last comment)

Disappointing "ending". I must really question, why would you spread yourself soooo thin if the series was planned for only 26 eps to begin with?


Basically, nothing is resolved, and the series spends more time drawing fake "intense" scenes than actually progressing the plot, building the world, fleshing out the characters, or anything else really. The progress it made in 26 eps is about equal to 2-6 eps of a regular anime, which would be fine if this were a prime-slot JUMP anime, but it's not, which makes this rather pathetic...

The show had its moments but was much like the Hobbit movie - stretched waaay too thin and with pacing way off to be enjoyable in any real way. Basically 26 eps of barely anything happening at all.

They may have just made the anime too soon. With the 25 episodes they did do, even with the slow pacing of it, the anime still covers about 3/4ths of the manga so far. With the immense popularity of the show and the creators seemingly not wanted to go beyond the manga and do original content, I'm confident the show will get a season 2 eventually. That's gonna take some time though for the manga to finish up.

Though I would definitely say it was enjoyable, but I would recommend to people to marathon the show, at least several episodes at a time. I found myself enjoying the show more when I started falling behind and watched 3-4 episodes in a row to catch up. Even stopped myself from watching the last few episodes until the final one came out so I could do the same.

Ok, I know I'm way late on this one, but I just finished it last night. I liked it. I certainly didn't get bored watching it. I hope they will continue it. Would love to see the rest of the story.

I always avoided anime adapted from games because I thought what was the point? I've since changed that mindset after watching the rather underrated Shingeki no Bahamut last year. This brings me on to this year obligatory anime adapted from game God Eater. Described as a poor man's Attack on Titan, I actually think it is better than Attack on Titan. First of the animation is absolutely stunningly beautiful. It has made me a believer in CGI anime which I never thought would happen.

With episode 5 of God Eater (ironically episode 5 of AoT is where I stopped watching because the story became so obvious and boring), it moved into uncertain territory. I found it to be emotionally draining. I now have to wait two weeks and ponder where the story goes from here which in itself is interesting.

even in case this series is a comic relief filler prior S2, so far ep.6 is my favorite about what girl wrote Jean love letters... I'm surprised THAT titan is female and Hange's unknown gender, also i wonder if Eren or Annie will turn into titans

I find it novel, how they draw the parallels to major/epic events in the original series to the very mundane events here. But that won't carry the series.

For a series that feels a lot like "Puchimas", I really do like the animation. If the proportions and scale were re-aligned with the norm, this would be pretty serious anime to watch aesthetically, I think.

Attack on Titan season 2, continuing right after the 2nd recap movie's cliffhanger

Norren said:
Attacking Titan season 2: I still can't stop laughing at how colossally bad the JP author's engrish is. Watched purely for "can't look away from trainwreck" value, the manga has shark jumped so far that it actually makes sense again. I have to applaud the mangaka's editor, the man has the tenacity and patience of a saint.
then better ignore its liveactions, i think S2 starts strong with a new smart titan :)

Just started watching S1... for this genre, it's rather well done...mostly in terms of story where it counts, as the animation looks normal, and the characters the same, essentially another high school class defending the school/country/people. The Titans are a wee bit over the top, would love to see them utilize actual history with the Nephilim, who should return soon, but that's way too esoteric... and by the time they do, so much else will be going on... though it is interesting to see the parallels.

I've just finished ep8, and it is better to watch a few eps at a time... more like a film/movie that way... keeps the energy going etc.... nice writing so far... the bit on the girls's parents death by those slave traders... nice bit of reality interspersed throughout... like the other tall guy who doesn't think he's a leader, only to be told by another that it is because he knows fear that others can relate to him etc...

better than mecha... not a mecha fan... as it's usually younger, mostly shonen, aren't they? this seems more seinen, so the writing can be more 'adult' as well... which seems to work better with this genre... IMO.
I can understand why others liked it... good action based series... interesting how they have so far set up humans as prey for larger 'humanoids'... hard not to go esoteric here... must be subconscious projection... cool though just to see some of these issues/situations portrayed in any fashion... B)
