So good. Definitely off to a good start. Hope that it can keep up.
The music and visuals only added to the quality that much more.

I want MORE.

THIS IS HOW YOU START OFF A SHOW, instantly has my attention and cannot wait for the next episode.

Also loved how the dude tried to act cool but the second he came face to face with the titan instantly turned coward and ran, although i can't say that was the wrong decision as it was his only real option, but i can't help but laugh. A brutal ending and a great impact for how the main character's going to grow from here onward.

A great first episode, very faithful to the manga. Music and art was great, and Kaiji's voice didn't bother me at all.

Fucking awesome.
I'm so glad how faithful it is to the manga and the animation & music is top notch. I hope it keeps this up throughout the whole season, started off on such a high note.
Touch me, you filthy casual~

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.


don't worry it'll be explained later on...

I was trying to imagine the face of some people if this anime had the same art as Aku no hana(i know that was impossible .-.).
i think i'd murder someone.

The titans in this remind me of the 'humans' in Aku no Hana.

god... damn... I literally cried. (edit: oh, it seems I'm pretty much the only one who claims to have cried)
The execution was just top notch, I was 100% into the story and that attack, it killed me, I was closing my eyes, hiding my face with my hand and waiting for that scene to go away while listenning to the sounds, how could I watch that?

for all the people who called this the next SAO or Guilty Crown, I'm glad I was not one of them. Wit studio is awesome.

Amazing first episode! Hopefully it isn't a one hit wonder like SAO and it'll stay consistent.
Those titans seriously creep me out though.

Holy crap, that was freaking intense. By far the best anime this season! 9/10 for the episode, but if this keeps up 10/10 for the entire series!
It's going to end in filler most likely.
Better to lower your expectations for the last episode just in case.

I actually have alot to complain about, other than that drop dead gorgeous scenery. Such as the MC's voice... really...

BUT LOL SHE GOT EATEN. LOLOLOLOL. That was awesome. XD
(I didn't give a crap about her because she had like... what, 2 minutes in that whole episode?)

And I loved how the guy changed him mind when he saw the giant and decided to run away with the children.

Looks like it will have very good action (duh). Even that little bit with the recon corps vs giant was pretty sweet.

Anyone else feel like that was rushed though?

I sure would love to know what kind of kinky (?) shit his dad had in the basement.
Though everyone else collectively came to this show as well, I must say that if somebody wandered into my room right now holding a black light, they'd probably turn a 180 and leave.
Also, did anyone notice that the animation style looked vaguely like Jojo's Bizarre adventure or was that just me?
At any rate, this is certainly the show to look out for this season.

Both Aku no Hana and Shingeki no Kyojin was written by the same guy... I guess different studio can give a complete impression of a masterpiece .

For one sec, I think that his father "summon" the titan.

Never seen anything about this series until I heard it was being adapted into an anime.

Interesting that they're limited to primitive technology. I'd have thought that "a couple hundred years ago" would mean 200 years in the future from now. And that giants appeared and nearly exterminated modern society. Knocked mankind back a few centuries, and are now fighting them with cannons, muskets and fancy wire tricks.

If the giants appeared today, some cruise missiles, tanks, and high-powered rifles would make short work of them.

there were some LITTLE parts omitted from the manga but the adaptation is like 95%+ true to the source material

Are you sure about that?

I'm pretty sure Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan is written by Hajime Isayama while Aku no Hana is written by Shuzo Oshimi.

Amazing animations,& just dark I mean really dark.For a moment I thought that one guy that was yelling & say how he was a failure was about to commit suicide or something.Can't believe Eren actually saw his mom get eaten,I mean he could have atleast look away.But I guess since he didn't look away it'll fuel his hatred for the titan & make him more motivated to kill ever last titan.Def gonna keep watch & probably start the manga too.5/5

Wow. Just. Wow.

This was intense. I loved it 5/5. Might be just me but I loved the animation the way it is... and the eyes are gorgeous. Everything is gorgeous actually. I'm already liking Eren as the main character and I DID feel bad for the mother... I liked how the guy finally shit in his pants when he faced the Titan and turned around. Finally a show where everyone isn't all Over Power at first Kicking Ass n Stuff!

... gotta say the giant are horrible looking and I love it. The Smile. I don't know. It's creepy. It's awesome xD

One episode wasn't enough!!!

Are you sure about that? The staff pages on both beg to differ.
Also, after watching it seemingly belt steam for a few minutes, I can't help but wonder if the "Super Giant" is some sort of man [or otherwise humanoid lifeform] made automaton; unless of course that was just an inordinate amount of smoke caused by some manner of explosion.

Can't wait to see Eren go Kratos on those Titans. (sorry if you don't get that reference)
