Attack On Eyeballs

They're very similar, really.

Don't know the show, so I didn't get it at first. Then I googled the show... and now I think I get it? "Full-blown" is a double entendre, right?

Some are so naked, they don't even have skin!

My advice; don't bother with the show.
Ranks as a mere OKAY, if you've seen more than a few Anime...
There's tons better out there.

OT: How could you not like Kawaii Titan!

SO KAWAII!

SO KAWAII!

Feth that titan in particular.

Watching the show with someone else... might bug them to watch more when they get home later >.>

The show is slightly above average at best.
I don't know why people are treating it as the next coming of anime jesus.
It's not THAT.GOOD.

You're watching it wrong, go back with the assumption its a black comedy rather than a drama, it's absolutely hilarious.

Hahaha

I shall.

Titans don't have genitals so don't count as being naked!

As a 40k fan, im rather fond of Attack on Titan for its high casualty rates amongst the cannon fodder and a certain air of mystery and despair as time and time again heroic charges end up in disaster.

Ain't gonna say its best anime evar and wouldnt know enough about anime to make such a call anyways, but i just enjoy how expendable everyone is and taking bets on peoples survival rates. Hopefully it can keep up this vibe.

It seems like years to me since an anime came out that wasn't so pure shonen formula it lacked any defining characteristics. (Nice idiot gains superpower, PG streetfights, follows his own justice and never gives up)
Last one I can remember was Code Geass and this goes even further to remind me almost of Berserk.

I'm not a huge fan of this anime but it is the first in years that Ive even bothered to remember the name of.

Lots of action, above average animation, and, although the plot is quite mediocre, it has some twists, which makes people think they are watching something deep.
Oh, and characters die here and there.
A paradise for shonen fans.

Sure just not the ones we want to see naked. (With that one exception, if you've seen the show you know)

The big question is: Does it count as fan service?

I have heard that about every single popular thing ever.

It is called differing tastes. I don't get why anybody likes COD, but considering it is one of the best selling games ever made, clearly it's good for a lot of people.

Although like the person who got a warning said, the manga is better. If only because it doesn't have an insane amount of filler. If they cut out all of the padding in the anime it'd be as far as the manga by now. They added padding to stop it from catching up too fast, and unfortunately it really shows.

Is she supposed to be squinting out of shock for the gore, or does it have something to do with the naked thing? I'm not sure I get the joke.

the pacing. so sloooooooooooooooow
but it builds really great atmosphere, much more than the manga the anime makes you feel like the fight is basically hopeless. and when the titans are fighting it actually feels like they are huge, which is always a big plus.
and the first 13 episodes have the best opener of anything ever.

Johnny Novgorod:

If I am understanding it correctly:

She sees Erin watch an anime about people in swimsuits.
Gets told this one has full nudity.
Realises what kind of nudity it is (google Attack on Titan if unfamiliar with it).
Is wincing because it's not what she had in mind.

Kind of like if somebody said "Do the Saw films have people solving puzzles?" and somebody responds "Oh yes, they solve a lot of puzzles". It's true, but a person who hasn't seen the films isn't going to be expecting how exactly they go about doing it.

Eugh, I would watch the show, but the angst really turns off.

Also those cringeworthy lyrics(when translated to English).

The strip would have probably been a bit more topical if it had come out a few weeks ago ;)

For those who haven't seen it it's worth a shot. It's not perfect by any stretch, but its got some decent bits.

I actually burst out laughing for this one.

I'm still suprised no one has written a 40K/Attack on Titan crossover fanfiction yet. I'd love to see Imperial Guard or Space Marines vs Titans.

Best anime of the year, hands down.

I guess that's true, although the manga is quite the success.
The anime itself can't stand on its own, I agree, though.

I like the premise, and what I've read so far, but the artwork for the manga looks like an absolute train wreck.

Angst! If there's one thing you're aloud to be angsty about, it's your friends/family all getting eaten in front of you.

OT: I think AoT made most people cringe, though more for the sads than bads.

Dude, all Japanese music has cringeworthy lyrics when translated to English. Their songwriting is kinda weird, with all their non-sequitur metaphors and the like.

Not that I find the show that great. I watch because I'm hoping that the show will secretly be all about Nazis.

I'm pretty sure that the 5 stages of grief aren't just composed of:

1-Anger
2-More Anger
3-Anger with Extra Sauce
4-Anger with a side of Anger
5-Anger^2

Also whilst I get that Erin is angry, his constant shouting is just plain annoying.

Also, what kind of guard tells a mother that her child was eaten and that there is no hope for anyone? They're supposed to be guards, goddammit, as in, THE MILITARY.

Wait...

Guys, shut up for a second about your weeaboo emo giant porn; is Erin wearing a Catbug tee shirt?

What very good taste.

How far did you watch? Please don't think i'm attacking you, i'm just curious as although at the start of the story (when he's a kid) he does do alot of shouting, but after the time skip he doe's a much wider range of shouting. I won't lie, Eren is a loud character (I think AoT is classed as Shounen so just part of the course really) but he does have alot more to yell than just anger.

Chimichanga:
Wait...

What very good taste.

How the hell did I miss that, I wanna hug Erins chest so much right now... I mean like more than usual... while all up making like 50 babies.

Is the term full frontal nudity still applicable when the nude people have no genitalia/ naughty bits at all?

To be fair, it isn't exactly lacking on the character killing.

Deception, but also not. That's subtle assholery.

-Japan
-Full blown nudity

Can't believe she fell for that.
