Well, seems like a decent fantasy series. MC is a bit on the whiny side (even before Titans attack) but ehh, it'll probably get better!


Why? Because what he says makes sense?

And to the people that cant stand Eren's voice because of Kaji Yuki.This is pathetic.

Hopefully Kaji Yuki uses his Satoru voice later, so the hate would stop. :v

Except that most of them hate him for his past characters(two certain ones) not the voice acting.

Anyway.Cant wait for THAT to happen.I am sure that manga readers know what I mean.

Oh hey ssjokg :D. Haven't you seen since SAO threads lmao.

Because I was away from ALL sub-forums for 2 months.


So you've been stuck on all the raw-forums for the past 2 months?

A strong contender for anime of the year.
Now I'm kinda sad that I read the manga cause now it means less excitement for me whenever I wait for the next episodes.
Animes like this are best when you don't know what is going to happen next.

That was brutal! That was an excellent introductory episode. I hope the production team continues on this level on of excellence.

Both series have humanity being trapped in fear from another, "superior" race. Both feature absolutely amazing action sequences as well.

Hmmm, that's interesting. Though I don't see how that's a bad thing, those recs are basically correct.

This is awesome! Loving the premise so far. The setting as well; very medieval. Had to get a little used to the style though; black outlines and the way they did the shadows and highlights is also pretty unusual.

Many moments of foreshadowing all led to that moment. So they call them Eotena. The big one looks like a medical doll for showing off muscle fiber to me.

The mere look on the faces of the 'normal' sized ones though, what the hell man... They're grinning like crazy. The way he ate his mother, so gruesome.

I'm liking this! :D

Wow, I went into this with only having seen the preview and knowing nothing else, this one easily tops the list at being one of the most promising series this season. It's simply amazing!

Holy fuck the first few minutes and the last few were insane.. never heard of the manga so I'll probably read it given all the great reviews it has. This could be the anime of the year let's hope it doesn't develop like SAO and go downhill.

Animation/Art- incredible hopefully they keep it good and don't resort to bad animation for 1-2 episodes due to budget..
OST - good epic music!
Story - don't know the whole plot at the moment, but it looks promising.
Characters - intrigued by this aspect..I know they're only kid atm I wonder how they'll grow up especially since Mikasa is the only badass of the 3 atm

I completely forgot I wanted to watch it! I'm glad I picked it up, it looks like really great concept. I hope the execution will be awesome as well (so far, it is).


There are a few scenes in the OP that are from the manga so it's very possible they'll be sticking close to the source material, which is just as awesome as the anime. If anyone can't wait for the next episode go read the manga because you won't be disappointed in the least :)

Wow those visuals were stunning and the those Titans were really frightening.
The lack of skin on their faces..ugghh.

I hadn't read the manga so I didn't know what to expect, so far seems very promising.

Does it matter? It's only temporary after all. People will adjust their ratings accordingly when more episodes air.

Why all this drama? Do you know people can change the vote whenever they want?

But what I hate the most are those who do a review after only the first episode...

I... wow... I didn't expect it to be THIS good. I'm shaking and having tears for some reason. No idea why. This was intense.

This is one of the strongest opening episodes I have ever seen.
I have my own anime blog. It's called Anime Viking. Hope you'll you read it!

I rate a show when it comes out but I agree with you too. I have never rated a show 10 after one episode. It just can't show me enough to deserve that. A small group of people here though (I've seen a few) only rate things 1 or 10. I'm pretty sure it's this group plus the fact a lot of people don't rate early that make this happen.

I'm really surprised the mods are not removing them immediately. After all of that new rules and guidelines.

I had not finished but 5 minutes and I already knew this was a keeper. I have never read the manga or anything, so I went into this totally cold, and I have to say that I was very, very impressed.
The animation, music, plot, characters, OP/ED, everything was just awesome. This is 9/10 for me.

I don't pretend to be some kind of critic, the only reason I rate thing and the only scale I base my ratings on are on my enjoyment. I rate a show when it comes out and it often changes while it's airing. I'll then weigh the show up at the end and give my final rating. Unless you are some kind of profession critic why would you be so serious?

He was just stating his opinion, seriousness has nothing to do with it.

For what it's worth, i change my rating after each episode as well, so it's more accurate to the broadcast time.

It's just a difference of opinion.

This is now one of the few anime this season that I am interested in, I look forward to more.

But if this kid goes soft and doesn't kill shit, I will drop this 100%.

Yeah sorry I was probably a little quick to get on the defensive, a bad trait of mine *_* I mean nothing harsh though. I just see no issue with rating early as long as you are being genuine.

Just watched and I feel weird...like all over. It's a sense of hopelessness I've never experienced before, and the shame is I think I enjoyed it on some level. Absolutely watching this series in full, and if it ends well I'll check out the manga.
