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.

When eren got eaten that first time i was cheering and ready to worship Attack on Titan as a totally awesome anime which ain't afraid to take risks...Meh that didn't last :/

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.

There's tons better out there.
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.

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.

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.

Yeah Eren got eaten early on and survived but then Levi's entire team got wiped out to a man. Apart from Eren I don't think there's anyone in the anime that has strong enough plot armour to exempt them from dying.

About halfway into episode 2, at the point at which my ears started hurting(though I was ill at the time), I just said "NOPE"(and yes, his mother dying was pretty recent, but he was just angry for the most part, and little sadness, besides, he was already angsty even before her death(scene with the guard and all))

Sorry if I seemed to unfairly attack SnK, but after Naruto and NGE, I have a very low tolerance for angst.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think the show is terrible, the animation is the best I've ever seen, and the soundtrack is pretty good, but like I said, low tolerance for angst.

I agree completely. The show is possibly slightly above average; but it's got a ton of problems. Eren's complete multiple personality disorder is one of them. He goes from starry eyed kid, to the whiniest, angstiest character since Squall. Then he basically becomes an out of the loop moron who never has a singe fucking clue what's going on and just shouts all the time about everything.

Is he convicted to kill "ALL" the titans or not? Cause he doesn't really seem like he wants to.

Really, for the main character, he's the worst character in the show. When he "died" I was so relieved he got killed off. I hated him that much, which I don't think is what the show was going for.

Also, what the hell was all that final fantasy bullshit at the end of the first season? I don't even want to see more to be honest.

Not sure what i should spoiler so to be safe gonna spoiler entire answer:

Yeh i loved that episode! I was really fond of levis squad and was heartbroken that it was a total team wipe... But that's what made it my favorite episode of the series :p

But what i meant about the eren example was for a second, i honestly thought the protagonist was killed to show how futile it is to believe willpower alone can beat the titans. Instead eren is turning out to be the classic shonen hero, which i just find boring as hell.

Otherwise regarding characters with plot armor...Id say mikasa and levi are the only other 2 characters that have it.
I don't see either of these characters just dieing randomly, would take super titans to kill them.
Everyone else is fair game though :D And hopefully the series will continue in that route!

Titan = best thing to happen to anime in over half a decade. I now consider it amongst the very best; Gurren Legann, Onizuka, Ghost in the Shell and Cowboy Bebop. It is that good, so fuck you if you disagree.

No its writing isn't masterful, no it's art style isn't unique, no it's animation isn't ground breaking. What it is:

- brilliantly and endlessly compelling and entertaining
- a god damn welcome breathe of fresh air compared to 99% of anime

Sasuke will do that to a persons tolerance levels...
