THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Great episode! I loved it!

Mikasa ;.;. Good thing she dodged that cause that would of hurt like fuck. I also loved the OST again this episode. Just a week more to go...

Poor Eren:


Go Mikasa~ and hell go Armin! I'm proud of him!

Figured it'd about cover ch.13, okay episode. Next week is gonna be great. Loved the fire with Eren, though, that was a great stylistic choice.

Whining about pacing will be extra funny to watch this week because Trost ends next week.

More impatient knob ends in the episode threads. How lovely. You guys make me feel ashamed to be a manga reader.

I like the manga a lot, and this pacing is seriously beginning to grate. I am very glad we'll be done with this arc by next episode, but then that leaves a recap episode to look forward to.

Joy.

It's not like the criticism isn't legitimate, it's just very frequently blown out of proportion.
IMO, at least.

Every series have to have a bit of hate. What makes SnK special?
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.

It's a small bloody price to pay for an ending that isn't anime original. After being burned so many times by shitty adaptations until now SNK is a ray of hope in terms of adapting a manga.

This episode was a lot better than the previous.
The anime-original scenes of Jean were really good.

where's all this complaining about the pace coming from? it's been like this the whole time and no one complained before -_- i like the way it's done and it doesn't feel dragged out to me at all even having read the manga.

Then, I have to say (a bit late): Welcome to MAL forums.

Omg can't stop replaying the ost in the beginning (before op). I canttttt wait for the osts to be released next week, the wait for that has been worse than waiting for each episode.

So are people gonna complain about the pace every week? Its not that bad.. 1.5 chapters a week is fine imo

Anyway next week ends Frost's arc then we have a recap and then the good stuff starts.

SnK chapters are between 38-45 pages (most of them). Thats like 2-2.5 weekly chapter contents. I would be so happy if more animes use this much material each week.... Its a fine pacing, which, like stated before, increases the change we wont get a anime only ending.

They're making an anime the right way. Do you want it to end up like blue exorcist?

You're ashamed that WIT is adapting every single chapter almost 100% accurately? Wow.

Personally, I'd say the anime is better than the manga at this point. But then again, I didn't fully get into it until the second arc.

Just saying, I prefer the slow pace because we don't want another incident like FMA happening with an original anime plot halfway through.

if WIT made it any faster, they would probably have to fit in a whole other arc. Then people will be complaining even more. This part was slow in the manga too. The main difference is that the pace can be determined through your reading speed

I found that part pretty interesting. As for the rest of the episode, even if I like slow pace, it was too much of a drag this time around.

And honestly, I know Mikasa is badass and all, but I'm really getting sick of only her, among hundred of other people, owning Titans. I know others get some hit too but pretty much everyone sucks balls compered to her.

And this is a perfect chance to put some anime-only scenes where other unimportant characters are struggling and at least trying to hit the giants aside from simple images of them being grabbed or eaten... It would add to the atmosphere at least.

There is only 2 things I want to happen to Mikasa.

Either:

A) She dies

or

B) Becomes a good character.

Realistically, I don't see either of those things happening. I want more Levi though, much more interesting than Mikasa or Eren. He should be MC.

It's a good thing the anime is focusing more on other characters than the manga did then.

Well, that is good as well. I just don't like Mikasa, she is overpowered and that ruins the immersion that the show originally provided. The titans are no longer to be feared because she is so damned powerful. I was hoping Eren at least crippled her but apparently that was too much to ask for.

Next arc is gonna prove you very very wrong. Not with Mikasa, but other things. No freakin' threat you say, huh.
