THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Nice, series is here!

Moderator edit:
Please do not try to bring SAO in this discussion. It doesn't need it, and it only creates very conflicting opinions. Thanks.

Animation is pretty good so far and I liked the soundtrack. 1 minute in and already a huge ass giant lol. Pretty good OP song as well. I am definitely impressed as what I can see with the action in the opening scenes.

Mm, some of the voices fits well I guess. Mikasa's design looks well though! Oh ya, there's some more cruel and sad scenes. As a fan of the manga, I'm impressed so far. So many damn giants. I feel sorry for Eren though and damn this giant is butt ugly imo:



Holy shit.

Great introductory episode. Production values will be the least of our worries. Especially the OST. Also, good focus on facial expressions and eyes. They convey emotions very well.

I approve of the adaptation, WIT did an amazing job, I like the little additions like the preaching guy, the blood on Eren's fingers and the camera work a manga can't do, the colossal titan's attack looked awesome.

They should have kept the manga's beginning though, it would have been better for the narrative.

Also, Mikasa is the best character, it sucks a little bit though that she lost her look in the manga but that's just my opinion.

Oh, and I noticed censoring.

HOLLY CHRIST!

Art - 10
Animaction - 10 (15 by this season's standards)
Sound - 10
Music - 10 (Revo I love you!)
Voice - frighteningly 10
Characters - 10 (means good personalities)
Direction - 10


By God, this episode was perfect! Absurd! Gore, infamy, despair!

That scene in the end when
... WOW! Scene of the season!

They didn't show how Kalura was eaten, minor disappointment but everything else was top-notch.

There was censorship, but it wasn't stupid "cover half the screen in black" a la TE. It was actually subtle and in a way I didn't mind it at all.

I like the pacing, they are following the manga word for word. Thank you Linked Horizon for that amazing OP. Sawano Hiroyuki did a excellent job on the OST this ep I hope he continues to impress me next episode. The art/and animation were top notch, that wall breach scene gave me chills.

5/5

Censor? Absolute not! This anime is cruel dude, my heart was broken in this episode alone.

The pacing was also fantastic. It was on the slightly slow side which I'm thankful for since it meant they weren't rushing through the minor details in the beginning.

The encounter with the titan at the end was amazingly done.

Various animes this season had me excited, but all my expectation was for this.

And it seems that I will not disappoint! It was an excellent introduction to the anime, and even those who do not follow the manga will surely have good expectations of the anime. The animation, art and OST are great and the opening song is pretty good.
It has everything to be the best of the season.

This is gonna be such a fantastic anime!

I'm probably gonna be watching that opening until the ep comes out subbed. This has gotta be licensed so I can buy the dvd!

this is the first time ever, that i've watched a RAW. I had huge exportations for this anime, and it surpassed it. Everything was flawless, i'm soo happy they are doing this story justice. Can't wait to see more of one of my favorite mangas come to life

If they keep this up, this wont just be the best anime of 2013, but the best anime PERIOD

Flawless and absolutely epic. 10/10, period.

very very very good.
the only thing now to enjoy from this will be to show my friends who haven't seen the source material the episode once it's subbed.

i watched the first raw to show up myself.

This was a really awesome episode. I wasn't digging the PV much but some friends of mine really are really enjoying the manga and episode 1 didn't disappoint me. This looks like one of the better releases this season so far.

Decent episode, but the protagonist was really annoying.

I think i'm going to drop this since i read the manga. I seriously hate Yuki Kaji voice. I just knew he would do that damn whining voice.

Everything was perfect except for that annoying voice.

I'm glad my favorite Japanese composer doing the OST.

Protagonist is kind of one of those immature pricks, but the drama is top notch. Haven't been so disturbed in such a long time. I mean -- death of immediate relatives is common is anime, but being eaten alive in front of the protagonist is just, wow. Gonna keep following.
