SnK is so god damn good.
That's it. I have nothing more to add to this thread.
so good

@Saidan

Best anime of the year? No, its one of the best. I think that vote goes to Jojo and Space Brothers, but that's just me. Others will think otherwise and that's cool.

Titan is okay mind. I do enjoy that its a sign of what more anime should be, which is more story and characters and less bs pandering fan service (which has turned me off so much anime as the years pass by). I think the last title to get the same kind of buzz was Tiger and Bunny and I can understand why.

Kudos to the creator of Titan. Its not outstanding but its a darn sight more original, than most of the crap anime coming out each year and I get why many will carry its torch. Not being afraid to off characters TWD style is also a bonus.

I love Attack on Titan.
One of the best animes I've ever watched.

Madara XIII:

Neither is anything else that's being released. This just happens to stand above most shounens.
Hell, I'd say it's better than the Big 3 (Naruto, Bleach and One Piece/ then again those contrived stories don't really hold much merit)

Still, compared to Sword Art Online (Absolute Garbage that just looks pretty), Kill La Kill (Trigger just throwing over the top anime scenes 80 percent of the time with a sprinkle of fanservice while trying to make it a coherent story.), I can at least enjoy Attack on Titan's story.

Also Free!'s pretty good. Never was one for slice of life or drama, but it seems to get the job done.

Kill La Kill is (in my opinion) probably the best anime this season, and one of the best this year, if only for the animation. But of course, it's goddamn Trigger, so that was expected.

Also, people still watch Naruto? I mean, it's terrible. Period. I still read the manga for closure, but everything in it is just awful.

Frankster:

Same. First six episodes were fucking great. Then the twist comes and it turns into every anime ever with a lot more shouting.

Stopped watching shortly after. It's probably not bad per say but I've seen enough anime/anime based games to not want to watch AoT.

Ah yes, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, another favourite of mine, so yup I feel the pain too, of people ignoring a good manga simply because it does not have an anime adaptation of it.

Still, the people behind the animation are big fans of Jojo so we know the animation is a work of love. Not to mention, Araki-sensei is very critical of his own work, even adaptations of it, (he even prevented a movie adaptation of Battle Tendency from being released or even screened simply because he hated the film), so if it manages to get aired, we know Araki approves of the anime.

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

Also those cringeworthy lyrics(when translated to English).

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 don't know, I like bizarre, metaphorical lyrics, but I don't watch anime. I'm curious as to how you'll react to this song...

Mogwai aren't actually Japanese, but they got the singer from a Japanese band (Envy) to "Sing" for this song. Personally, I think the lyrics are beautiful.

I uhhh... I have nothing on topic to contribute. The only anime I've ever seen is the American re-dub of Shin-Chan. Which is hilarious. I've watched the whole show a couple times over. Principal Ench and that Flamer guy from the later episodes are two of my favorite characters from any series.

Kill La Kill I was wary of, but will check out to support Trigger. They are the kind of studio I can get behind to lift anime out of its largely mediocre creative ditch.

Suffers from some serious pacing issues and typical anime characters behaving erratically... but then has some incredibly impressive intrigue and world building, not to mention the animation and art is just downright gorgeous - and I'm not even a fan of anime.

As far as I know the next season hasn't been green lit yet, which is a shame.

As for the squinting she was probably expecting naked Japanese boxcutter blade soldiers but all she got was giant mutant back-hand slapping retard creatures with no genitals.

Edit: Has the best opening credits of any anime though. Such a catchy tune.

Dat face.

I laughed.

BX3:
-Japan
-Full blown nudity

Can't believe she fell for that.

Pretty much. :D

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.

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.

Send in the Angry Marine, series will be done before the intro song is done.

ANGRY MARINES, ALWAYS ANGRY. ALL THE TIME!

..... after all, Anime is HERESY!

ALL THESE DAMN TAU WEABOO WITH THEIR MORALS AND DRAMA. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU GUYS NEED?! CASSIUS ASSAULT RAM YEAH.

OT: good chuckle, i like this one very muchly. It's nice to watch something where the good guys don't often win. The germanic mythology just makes it sweeter.

After having suffered an anime drought and one-too-many K-ON!/Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai!/Angel Beats marathons...

Attack On Titan felt like a breath of fresh air and I absolutely loved it from start to finish.

I'll admit there are some serious pacing issues, mostly because the first six episodes deceived me into thinking it would keep a steady but fast pace that pulls no punches in the story department. These issues weren't enough to detract from my pure enjoyment. The soundtrack, atmosphere, excellent world-building and brilliant tension building moments more than made up for its faults.

It's not for everyone and I can completely understand why the pacing or even some characters, (especially Eren) would turn off most people regarding this anime.

l3o2828:
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.

I'll agree with you on that front but say that it is the perfect show for new anime fans. Nice world building, cool premise, simple but enjoyable characters. If you want to get someone into anime I would suggest showing this to them since it's the perfect gateway series.

... there's a reason Imperium of Man vs Galactic Empire matchups end with the total annihilation of anything that isn't worshipping the EMPRAH. WH40K is the definition of over-the-top warfare in every imaginable form. It would be worth a snicker maybe, but wouldn't be particularly interesting.

OT:
Yeah, haven't seen it. Anime ain't my thing.

Heh, not what she expected, I bet.
Off thread: Please remember the God Tier Soundtrack. Quality>Quantity

The titans DO NOT stand a CHANCE. It would not even be a contest. They would get slaughtered completely by any post WW1 army. :P .
Modern day military would smite all the Titans in the Shingeki no Kyojin world in 10 minutes...

VanQ:
You mean people actually watched this garbage? There are far better shows out there.

Such as?

Sword Art Online, apparently.

Is the joke that her face looks like a titans face in the last panel?

I wonder if the show will hold its popularity into the second season since the manga started heading into lost territory after the 2nd female shifter battle.

It's going to hold for a long time, and why wouldn't it? It's not as if quality means anything to the average viewer, if Sword Art Online's popularity is anything to go by.

Saidan:
Best anime of the year, hands down.

Kill La Kill shall have that title.

Sure, best anime of the next year.

AOT is a great premise sabotaged by severe pacing issues, a questionable story direction, and monotonous grimdark.

And nothing beats Evangelion.

Guess the lesson is be careful what you wish for!

Ok ... what in the hell? I've read 3 things on this thread that simply make me wish to tear out my hair in frustration. So here we go, rant incoming:
"AoT is badly paced" ... umm did you watch the show? The overall story is actualy really well paced and labeled. It follows a simple model of conected story arcs: Calamity happens, things get bleaker and bleaker untill with great sacrifices a partial victory is won and it may seem just for a moment that things might be looking up before reality crashes down and the next arc begins. It is a really good model of build up, climax, respite that cicles through the whole season. Most anime's out there can barely pull off one such cycle in a season, yet AoT does several, and people say it drags on too much and has too much filler? Are we living in bizaro wolrd? The pacing in AoT is almost perfect, best i've seen in a while. Also the story is miles ahead in complexity and intrigue than alot of anime i have seen (and i have seen ALOT of anime) and the world they create is the most believable i have seen in ages.
AoT is a shonen ... why? Why this label? I can see it for the first half of the season, but after the second story arc, things take a turn for political conspiracy, intrigue and character drama with less and less time spent just fighting titans. Hell, Eren transforms a grand total of 4 times in 25 episodes! If this was a shonen he would have done it at least 20 times. It has nothing of the shonen formula atached to it, yet people just casualy throw the label on and walk away smugly calling the show trash. How verry insightfull. Now if the show wasted it's time with MG fights against Titan of the day, or Titan on Titan fights with Eren in the spotlight for every friggin episode then shonen would have been perfect for it.
The "too much angst" bits ... it's not angst first of all. No one is going "nothing is worth it, only pain matters, the world is shit" and all the spiell. On the contrary, the main cast is defined by OPTIMISM AND DETERMINATION! no matter what happens, they believe in a beatifull world outside the walls, in the value of their fight and are determined to do everything they can to ensure a better future for manking. INCLUDING EREN. HOW THE FUCK DOES THIS QUALIFY AS ANGST? You should learn something about human emotion. Now anger, that i can get. But hey let me come on over and EAT YOUR FRIGGIN MOTHER RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU! Let's see how you reacted to that! If anything the fact he turns all the grief, depresion and pain into anger against what he views as the enemy of all makind and is willing to do anything (including become what he hates) to destroy the titans is god damn impresive. There is not an ounce of angst in this show, no character just sits in a corner with Crawling palying in the background and just complains that the world is pain. Oh the world is pain and death and the atmosphere is opresive. Yet all the characters of the main cast are activly fighting against that, not bitching about it.

2 final notes: watch the whole show before writing it off like garbage! If you don't watch it to the end, all your opinions about the shows quality hold little actual significance. And second: IF you are capable of calling the retarded piece of shit called Kill la Kill "best anime of the year" then my friend you are not even worth the air your breathe. That is pure anime garbage fanservice made only for a new line of love pillows. And yes I HAVE SEEN the show ... but i wish i hadn't ... it's garbage.

PS: SAO fans? Ever heard of Log Horizon? It's still airing but from what i've seen so far it's miles ahead of SOA (which started ok then pissed all over it's potential and set it on fire. and i still stuck with it)
