Damn, this episode was glorious.

Go Mikasa :3 and team. That epic OST and all those Titans. I also see Potato Girl in tears. :(
That falcon punch was kinda brutal, no more like epic.

Moe titan spotted and see, they got guns:


Potato girl in tears ;.; I didn't like that.

Oh snap, that epic Titan from last week, one raging boss.

Eren was total BADASS! 8D

Mikasa cries! ;A;


I liked the part where Eren came back much more in the manga, but w/e.

The episode was EPIC so it's okay. :D

Okay, holy fuck. I told myself I wasn't going to complain anymore, but come the fuck on. SO MANY FUCKING STILLS THIS EPISODE.

Other than that it was a good episode, especially the plan with all the surrounding guns. The OST was also as good as ever.

Was waiting for that part. EREN IS BACK FOLKS.

R.I.P Moe Titan.

Part of the show, at this point..

This episode was surprisingly good despite all those, though.

Oh, come on! Didn't they recruit more animators just yet. Or they slave-driving them for the next arc?

The two titans didn't even see that Falcon Punch coming.

I want to know how many non readers saw the twist at the end coming.

The thing is, this episode wasn't that signficant as far as action goes. I'm fine with them holding back where necessary. You don't need to waste good animation on talking. There's more scenes later on that deserve great animation.

It's not like it was all stills either - there were some really good looking moments.
Curious what the anime-only people will think.

They brought back that OST from the first forest scene! Great job on titan Eren's rampage.

agreed, I'm annoyed by it too, hopefully its because of the lack of animators and not a stylish preference.

The episode is almost perfect, except that there is some stills in this episode. I think all the money goes to the actions. Any, I saw great action, character development of Armin. It deserve 5 stars.

The stills were a little annoying but budget, production schedule, lack of aniimators, etc. I think the Titan battles (and gear maneuvers) more than made up for the stills.

Hopefully, they'll animate the stills in the bluray-dvd releases.

If they don't have all that high a budget, I'd prefer they spend the money on iconic scenes as opposed to canon fodder filling gas bottles.

I wish that the "second weakness" scene was animated, but eh.

Good episode overall.

Well most anime have still shots is all I'm saying. Some high budget short ones or movies might not but it's not very often.

Just saying it's kinda redundant to complain about it.

I'm greedy and want based Wit Studio to animate everything. Actually, I'm extremely happy with the episode.

Then you would have to ask for movies or short 6-12 episode series of it. Going for 25 episodes without expecting any stills is a crazy thought.

The "Damn if you do, damn if you don't" kind of thing, which is never unpredictable.

Unlike certain series :P

There was about a minute of stills at the very most.

It's not healthy to focus on the negative. Like, really literally not healthy. It makes your serotonin level lower.

Besides, there's more positives in this episode. The 3D gear scenes, the titan battle scenes, the character development. The faithfulness to the manga. A little bit of expansion (not fillers!).

Go watch some Jojo bizarre adventure, you'll see some entire episodes of stills.

Now I can understand that the first couple of episodes were crazy good animation is why people are complaining about the sudden change in quality. But unfortunately that's probably a marketing strategy so I wouldn't get your hopes up for the rest of the series.

Cut it off. No one talks about frames. As Amarrez said, it's a choice of animating important scenes, aside budget and all. Point is we are greedy as the next Chihaya and we don't have Mikasa cell number.

Those 3D gear scenes. The Titan-to-Titan fights. The great voice-acting. Beautiful gorgeous faithful adaptation with original content that makes it even more awesome.

Fans of other manga series are going to be praying that Wit adapts their favorite manga.

Well stills are inevitable is the unfortunate truth with how fast anime is chucked out. They probably were limited in earlier episodes so it could make a strong first impression and people would continue to watch and buy the series.

A shame but inevitable in most series.

Great episode. I had to synchronize myself with Mikasa when she rushed to Eren, very nice and emotional scene. *tears*
And of course let's not forget Armin, ggwp.

Is what I would say if I were such a complainer of sorts. The animation was great, although I do have to say something about how the 3d maneuver gear moved in some scenes.
Also, Badass Levi in the preview!

I loved how Jean cut that Titan's finger to get out of its grip. That was awesome. Everything else was very good too. I actually liked the stills. Sometimes, they are better than animation. This is my favorite Attack on Titan episode so far.

The stills haven't really bugged me much so far, but that part in the middle of the episode was really bad. Like 2 minutes of dialogue with nothing but a couple stills and panning. I hope they are planning on at least adding a little animation there.

The rest was great, though.

as i feared the animation will not be consistent and only episode 1 so far has an awesome quality, still the Eren X Mikasa scene was done in sakuga animation so thats cool, and next episode we will see bad ass Levi finally
