    Mid 2010 :hurr it was pretty hard to find people outside of certain circles who followed the manga, and even then it was limited. It was nominated for MOTM several times but it seemed like the thread was always empty.

    In japan it was always popular, a real breakout from the first volume actually :hurr

    So Volume 0 raw scans are already out. The main character of the pilot looks like a male mix of Mikasa and Eren. :lmao

    I thought the female titan was Mikasa at first but since they showed her in the preview, I'm thinking its Annie, blond hair, blue eyes, enigmatic personality and the way she looked at Armin sort of give it away. :hmm

    She clearly dislikes humanity in general for some reason.

    Thinking about it, this brings up the question who Colossal/Armored titans are. Wouldn't be surprised in the least if Erwin was connected or even one of them, dude is way too suspicious.

    And I thought I was good enough to score around 10 kills with Mikasa without dying. :rotfl

    That drop-hit with Mikasa is fun to do.

    I'm afraid of reading threads concerning this show, but I have a lot of questions to ask along the lines of "what branch would you join" and such. Is this the best anime that ever came out? This show is way too good.

    Spoilers are usually tagged, but I haven't seen any major spoilers sticking out of the ordinary. You'll be fine on the thread.

    I know I'll act all chicken shit and join the Garrison. There is no way I have a chance to survive with my current physical skills.

    If anything was portrayed well enough it's that the Titans are terrifying and unless you belong to the absolute minority of the Army, the strong ones (Levi,Mikasa,Hanji,Spec Ops) you are fucked if you face them.
    Add in that they are unpredictable and they don't even know (literally) something like mercy.

    I mean look at the difference in Power.
    Levi and Mikasa have no problem in taking Titans, they're making it looks like it's as casual as taking a shit in the toilet.
    The rest get slaughtered by the Titans only surviving if you're lucky, Armin would be dead twice by now.

    And the Recon Corps are the ones who face these Monsters again and again willingly head on.
    This episode showed the terror of the Titan Territory IMO.
    They can appear anywhere, anytime, Sasha can tell a tale.

    Fuck that shit, I freely admit I don't have the balls for that.

    Isayama did this well imo.
    Police are safe, but they're pretty much cowards.
    Recon Corps is pretty much suicide unless you have talent.
    Garrison is somewhere in between.

    I probably take the Garrison as well.:lmao

    I'd probably be insane enough to join the Recon Corps. I'd feel better actively doing something than being trapped inside.

    This. Seriously, if we could really have a bite of what it actually is, say in a real life simulation, that is the horror of facing a titan, most of the people who think they have the balls to face them will piss their pants.

    Spring 2013 Anime Reviews ? When Good Becomes Bad and Bad Becomes Good

    > Attack on Titan (5-6/10):




    What utter horse shit is this? I mean, besides production/pacing issues (can't argue with that around episodes 10-13), AoT doesn't deserve to be shoved into a score like that when the 2nd half is already picking up. Garbage review.

    I feel the opposite. After listening to the full second opening, I started liking it. Plus Annie gets more screen time in the opening. :LOS

    I will actually agree with that reviewer, at least on some of the things he says. And mostly about the pacing and the quality of the animation. Especially, during the whole battle of Trost arc, the pacing was so damn slow.
    And I actually like the new opening. Don't know if I like it more than the first one but it is rather good.Should listen to the full version at some point.
