Holy crap was that awesome!!! I expected this to be good, but man that was epically beyond anything I'd imagined! First off, the opening is like a masterpiece of its own. And the art, the animation, the tension, the music, everything was top-notch! Those giants look so freakin creepy and they do feel huge! And I can't get enough of their natural sadistic smiles lol! If they keep this up, that's a 10 for me!

Phenomenal start. The soundtrack really adds to the desperate situation. You can feel the despair. Sawano Hiroyuki does it again.

Holy shit, what an impressive opening episode. I really wanna watch the rest of the show now, and I'm actually tempted to read the manga just so I can know what will happen next.

Argh... This anime is so good.

That final scene had me clenching my teeth, it was so hard to watch as the Eren's mother was picked up by the titan. As much as she wanted to save Mikasa and Eren, she also wanted to be saved. Hannes wasn't entirely to blame for what he did. All the "Wall Menders" had never actually fought against the Titans, or so is my understanding. To him, the Titan was too scary.

I am going to start reading the manga soon. I can't wait for the next episode.

Great Opening, and awesome animation and art style.

Incredible art and animation really some of the best I've seen ever. Just great, I also love the scene were the soldier was going to face the giant to protect Eren , Mikasa and Eren's mother but then realized he had no chance, gave a nice impression of danger. Isn't the biggest one a titan and the smaller (still big) ones Giants? There's a huge difference in size between them so I figured they'd be named differently.

8/10 so far, I don't know enough about where the story is going to go to rate it higher, but I expect it will be deserving of higher.

That was a fantastic, 10/10 ost, animation, art, voicing, suspense, and basically everything including the subtle censoring (it was like it wasn't even there). The titans were terrifying frankly. The last scene made me shed a few tears. But I will not give into the hype yet. Last time I did, it was SAO.

Anyway, yes, either way, I am really fucking excited for the next episode. I am going to keep my average expectations and hopefully be pleasantly surprised.

Anime's okay. Hopefully it won't devolve into the cesspool known as SAO.
I enjoyed this first episode, and that is one fine OP.
I could tell what was going to happen though. It was rather obvious.
I am looking forward to the next episode.

Great adaptation so far. The animation looks nice and I'm glad they didn't censor the gore. The soundtrack also sounds quite epic. I can only hope the rest of the series will continue to deliver as the first episode did.

Shingeki no Kyojin is the funniest anime so far this season.
When random guard leader gave that civilian her son/husband's mutilated arm, was bat s*** hilarious. You got to be the most heinous fiend on planet F***ing earth to do s*** like that: "I can't find my husband!" "let me give you a hand" XD
The main characters is so freaking hilarious, their dialogue is just amazing.

This is probably a return to form for Tetsuro Araki after Guilty Crown.

I like the grotesque and darkly humourous tone of this show (the tone Araki is known for).

First episode 10/10 indeed. Hiroyuki Sawano is a genius, Araki too.. And to you Production I.G, thanks to give us a chance to watch this masterpiece animated.

That ending sent shivers down my spine and left me dumbfounded. If the rest of this anime keeps up this level of animation and sound, as well as continue the epic yet harrowing experience, then this could truly be an amazing anime.

First impressions: 9/10

Yeah. I would hate to something like "Director of Shingeki no Kyojin Apologizes for Poor Quality of Episode #__ ".

Not bad for the first episode. Solid interaction between characters and direction was also handled well enough as an introduction. If this improves by upcoming episodes then I can already see something good here 4/5.

Marvelous job by Wit studio and production IG on the first episode. It turned out just as I imagined it would from the PV.
Did that titan break his mother's body before eating it. Damn the censoring.

Reminded me of HOTD minus the boobs and pantie shots.
