Mikasa seems like an improved version of Rukia from Bleach to me, just saying.

There were 2 people who dropped this show.

And we tracked them down and posted on their walls.

One of them gives 10s to dropped anime...

Have say, judging by what's been released this year so far, this is definitely a contender for best anime of 2013. Fair enough, you've got Aku no Hana (which was meh I guess) but the animation and everything else just hits you at the beginning. Can't wait to see the later episodes :P

Anyway, fantastic episode I was literally at the edge of my seat! Shingeki, Hataraku maou-sama and Utapri had the best premiere episode for me!

- Fuck that damn Titan, I hope he'll get an atrocious death.
- I really can't stand Kaji Yuki voice… *puke*
- Eren is a brat and I'm getting tired of brat yelling every time.

Still freaking awesome.

Holy shit, amazing first episode! The most highly anticipated anime of this seasons' first episode didn't disappoint AT ALL! The first 2 minutes alone was simply awesome! I really like how the animation is really close to the manga's. Last 5 minutes were so intense, I had freaking goosebumps. That scene where Hannes stood there petrified after seeing the Titan was so creepy. Karla's death scene was done so well... The Titans are insanely brutal. The OP was great too. I know I'm gonna love seeing more of Mikasa in action. :D
Best first episode of this season by far! 5/5

I see you cant stand Kaji Yuki voice either. I think im just going to mute him every time he talks. It's not like im missing anything since i read the manga. Eren isnt a brat in the manga like that. I guess since they made him a brat Kaji Yuki fits.

It's been a long time since the first episode of a show has given me chills...
This show has vibes similar to Evangelion and its looking real good.
I was starting to worry that there wouldn't be any more good serious shows with this kind of impact... Hopefully shingeki no kyojin can change my mind.

Regarding the spoiler above, I thought that it was fairly obvious.
I was actually hoping it would happen.

Yeah I dunno what they're expecting, just look at the image MAL uses for the show, it's pretty obvious.

i hope that kind of animation quality will be consistent for the entire series, a lot of anime only have awesome quality animation in the first 4-6 episodes of a series

im glad its not as gore as it looks i can still watch this with joy

The manga is far to be finished, so can be a new Gantz or a new Berserk

It was a spot on adaptation of chapter one and the first half of chapter two. They didn't change anything about Eren's character.

Exactly :) I'm getting a little pissed over people calling Eren a brat...and half because they don't like Kaji Yuki's voice. I'm sure it'll get better, since

^I guess this is a spoiler...though like other people said, it's fairly obvious.
Anyways, loved the first episode, extremely intense, and the animation is very faithful to the mangaka's art style. The titans were atrocious as they should be, and even scarier than reading the manga. I love the attention the animators put into details of the eyes, it looks very pretty.They did very well with the overall tone and the feelings of fear and despair. Seriously, I cried at that last scene when Karla was being left behind, her conflict of wanting to save the children yet not wanting die. Btw, that intro in itself was just too awesome for words. Although it was slightly cheesy at the part when all them jumped up (holy there were a lot), it also gave me goosebumps. Overall, wonderful introduction to the series.

Why do you need a spoiler tab when this is a discussion for the episode?

Amazing first episode, great animation, amazing soundtrack.

Thank you Production I.G, Hiroyuki Sawano and Tetsurou Araki

If I.G can maintain the caliber of cinematography & mood that it exhibited in the pilot, this'll probably be one of the season's best shows. The soundtrack's by Sawano, it's essentially hermetic in that category [Guy did the soundtrack to Ao no Exorcist and Guilty Crown -- people berate those shows for their storyline, never their soundtrack]. The only worries stem from whether I.G. can maintain this, and whether they decide to go for a faithful, cliffhanger-isque ending, or an original one.

Seeing it animated was better than the manga chapter when I initially read it.
bla bla bla
The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

Wow the art work is one thing that struck me right away when i first started this episode. This is on par, in fact i would say levels above recent anime movie releases. Animation was superfluid character design and colors were fantastic.

THIS FIRST EPISODE DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

I am so pumped for the rest of this season. I've had so many disappointing shows recently end, cough cough robotics notes.

This will make up for that! GAWD THIS IS SO EPIC

EPICCCCC

Fantastic start for this show. True to the manga, great animation and the OST is brilliant. This is going to be one hell of a ride. Hopefully someone else than gg will sub this. I noticed a fair share of mistakes... Luckily I'm up to date with the manga, so it doesn't matter.

First Impression.

HOLY SHIT

Story / Content

Very interesting indeed. well done pacing and introduction. We learn about the world and the characters.
Dat ending.

The only thing I will most likely complain about is the violence and gore... well I hope my stomach can take it.

Animation

Fresh and interesting style. These think outlines and the heavy use of black stripes shading really are cool looking.
Overall this anime looks damn sexy.
Amazing backgrounds. Amazing character designs. Amazing animation.
op notch IG is really reliable for the most part when it comes to animation.

Sound

Great soundtrack in this ep, well fitting VA and overall good atmosphere.
The OP was okay.. probably the only thing I couldn't really get into.

Characters

MC is likable. His sister mysterious and also seems like a likable character.
The other ones seemed important as well. Good cast so far. Will see more later.

Enjoyment

Despite the heavy ending I enjoyed this greatly. Really looking forward to the next episode.
I am falling, I am fading, I am drowning, help me to breathe.

I'm optimistic after this premiere but keeping my expectations in check

I like the art style and the world itself. The bolded lines help accentuate the kind of world they live in with humanity at its last stand. The world itself has that dark fantasy appeal too I'm particular too.

As for Eren, seems like one of KajiKaji's more nuanced roles instead of his usual beta characters he gets. Hopefully the show can keep up the atmosphere it sets and push it even further as seen in the trailer

Amazing episode. Best start of the season, no question.

Some people thought the kid was bratty, didn't come across that way to me at all. Just seemed like he has some convictions and takes them quite seriously. Tough to see that happen to his mom, really felt bad for him and his foster sister.

Really looking forward to the rest of this series.
