Shingeki no Kyoujin (Attack on Titan)

    Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants 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 giants.

    Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Elen vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.





    Since the anime will be airing tomorrow and I read the manga, I thought it would be nice to set up a thread for this.

    Finished Attack on Titan! I have to say that this a pretty darn good first episode. The animation was top notch just as the trailers promised. I haven't read the manga so I can't vouch for how accurate it is or not. Highly Recommended.

    Like I said on my post, The first episode is very faithful/accurate to the manga so it's great

    Wow that was an intense first episode. I'm definitely going to have a hard time waiting a week for each new episode.

    Okay but it's announced it will be 25 episodes, Do you think the manga has enough material for 25 episodes?

    The manga currently has 43 chapters and it's pages are usually 30+ so I think they have enough material.

    Really enjoyed the first episode, could potentially be anime of the season.

    Not bad at all. Some sweet visuals - I can already feel the world sucking me in. I do worry, though, that there isn't enough of a range of emotions here. Almost everyone seemed pretty highly strung before the wall was even breached (even though said wall had stood for 100 years), so when the titans broke in, the adrenaline could only be upped so much. Still, I have to wonder how they're going to survive this invasion. I assume they're going to flee, but where to? And how will they be able to avoid the titans outside the city? I guess I'll find out in the next episode!

    Those Titans are pretty disturbing. I mean really. Like I said in the other thread, this show lives up to how dark it makes itself seem, and I like that. At least so far, it's only been one episode.

    I've been hearing a lot of good things about this series. I think I'll wait until episode 2 to give it a try. Just in case the hype dies.

    So for those of you living in North America, looks like FUNimation has it. Glad to know a Toonami run in the near future is distinctly possible, the show looks like it deserves it if it can keep the visuals up.

    Teared up thrice at the emotional **** that was being thrown out like candy. This show is great I can feel in in my balls.


    (Update)

    Just watched ep.2 only teared up once this time. I did however start laughing when I saw this and realized what it looked like. starve.jpg

    Well, My only complaint in this episode is that they made older Mikasa too pretty. Where's that cold look of her like in the manga.


    But the good thing is that the ED is focused on Mikasa
