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.


No, They're not written by the same guy
opps made a mistake . It was the illustrate in the end of the episode was drawn by that guy .

It's great how well received this adaptation is. I guess with production values this good it would be hard not to. What even greater is that back then when I read the manga the first few chapters was okayish, nothing special. But the story keep going and later I was compeletely blown away, it became one of my favorite series that I hope can become super popular.

They aren't, but they are both run in the same magazine though.

I think what you guys are confusing is that the end-title card was illustrated by Aku no Hana's mangaka.

nothing to prove so far though

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.


Explosion of what tho ? It's not like a wall of stone would make 'smoke' when crushed. I also thought something similar about the 'Super Giant' He's WAY too big compared to the rest of his species and he doesn't look the same at all.

I've also been wondering about the basement + Eren's Father. Wondering if he's dead or not too.
...and thinking there might be a link between all of this.

Definitely the best opening so far for a spring 2013 show (and I doubt it will be topped by any later starting shows).

Maybe he lied since going outside the wall is consider a taboo word.Its quite strange a huge titan appear after a lighting struck.I think people sure notice such a huge size titan if its coming to the city wall. That mega titan magically appear out of no where 0.0"
There must be something related to the titan in the basement.A weapon perhaps .

Maybe those Titans had been watching a bunch of anime recently and decided to make their own giant robot. At any rate, from now on I'm going to refer to the big one as Kronos.

That was an astonishing first episode. I read the manga off and on again and even knowing what happens I was still amazed. The quality of animation, the music, depth of expression. I'm very excited to see more of this! Respects for the adults who pulled through for the kids by the end.

I don't think it's taboo, people just scared because everytime the scouting/reckon corpse went outside, a lot of casualties fell for no apparent progress/result

And I'm not sure if you can just go outside the wall if you want to, considering many smaller size giants loitering around, especially for a Doctor like Eren's father which can be considered as a valuable human resources inside the wall

It was ok. Nothing really interesting happened. Animation was poor at times and they shouldn't use that effect when the soldier flips out and states that he's a failure.

Well that was amazing.
Im torn between watching it weekly or waiting for it to finish airing so I can marathon it, GAH

If you really want to fit in, just put Legend of the Galactic Heroes in your top 5 and have it be the only 10-rated anime in your list.

(((Nothing really interesting happened)))

you have got to be trolling!!


how in the world nothing interesting happened?


1-giant creatures attack and kill ppl

2- a titan killing and eating a protagonist's mother

That opening... my latest song obsession. <3

I can tell this is gonna be along the lines of a masterpiece. Everything was just perfect. Been a while since I have actually seen an anime follow the source exactly, at least so far. Hopefully it stays that way or similar.

Definitely one of my favorites of the season. :D

Great episode. Eren's design screams Kuroko no Basket for some reasons, but I still prefer it over his weird manga look (talking about shota Eren). Can't wait to see the next episodes animated. Hopefully the action scenes will look awesome.

I don't blame Hanne if this shit was real in life. I would thought he had experience with giants before, but I guess its only the recon team.

Regarding Eren mother last moments, she said "no", because she either recall Eren wanting to join the recon team and face the titans like she saw now, or maybe she was afraid for her life, when her children is safe.

The real chopping down on humans, I wonder if THE BD/DVD will have it.

It's going 8.75 and above O.O

I think that's even higher than SAO's 1st rating!
