Is Kill la Kill better than Shingeki no Kyojin?

I'm comparing them because
>both are from 2013
>both are incredibly popular
>even among people who normally don't watch anime and/or normal people in general who had only watched Pokemon or Yu-Gi-Oh! before this
>both are said to have "saved anime"

But of course, lately, it is obvious that Shingeki did not in fact save anime, as it started to cater to its horrible fanbase. Is Kill la Kill following the same fate, with people calling it a deep, intelligent masterpieces that deconstructs reconstructs of deconstructs?
>>
SnK is overrated while Kill la Kill is legitimately good.

In terms of deep plot, Attack on Titan is much more promising.

It has horrible characters and pacing but it may be the best story told in anime ever.

It is literally the only anime in over 10 years that doesn't have any moeshit or fanservice or hypersexualized female characters in it.

It is also the first anime that has both gays and racial minorities in a positive light and shows women as the superior gender.

No. SnK is leagues better.

AoT would be the masterpiece of maybe even the century, if the author was not a lazy hack.
But then it dropped its premise, and whatever mountains of good planning could not save it from editorial messing and a lazy author who can't write for shit.
Lets not forget it has the pacing of a 1 chapter per week shounen, while being published at a chapter a month.
Argh.

No, not even close.

Actually, no, there is a clear relation between the two. They've managed to succeed with normal people, not just anime fans. How often does that happen? For normal people to watch an anime? Almost never.

You call him lazy? He has to work every day, at least 8 hours to produce what he does at his pace. Remember, it is ONE MAN who is doing both the story, and the writing and the drawing. And the drawing is pretty excellent by itself. Normally you'd expect him to give less of a shit if he also does the writing, but he always lives up to his high standard-- not only that, he even gets better as time passes.

Just try to make a 40 page comic with the same quality as he does. It would take you monthS, not a moth.

You will be surprised but normal people watching anime as well, and pretty much only popular, it's called entry level shit.

There is a difference between watching dubbed and censored stuff in English on TV and actually bothering to go through the "difficulties" of reading subtitles so that you can watch a "Japanese cartoon".

All my friends (and I have a lot of them) are normal people and they all watch both Attack on Titan and Kill is Kill. Some of them even stopped liking Attack on Titan because they didn't want to be associated with the awkward people and now they say that KLK is the best anime of all time.

He didn't change the outcome, you doofus.

He doesn't have a plan, he didn't know how he would end the story or what's in the basement before the anime and he doesn't know it now either.

If a writer tells you "oh yes, it's all planned" then you have a 100% guarantee that he is making shit up on the fly.

What other sources am I supposed to come up with? If you had friends in real life, normal friends, you would probably also notice that they watch these animes, even though they haven't watched any before.

Nobody has made a statistic comparing the popularity of them so what am I supposed to show you? Anecdotal evidence of such magnitude often comes very close to the truth.

SnK is the better by far.
Also KLK is not even close to SnK in term of popularity

yeah right, kill la fanservice is as popular as snk

Goddamn you people are stupid, and lol at saving anime
>>
>>100183848
Which is why that part was placed at the end of the post. So that you read it and then you realize that "oh no! I was just deceived in a comical way". Then again, some people do actually watch the anime because of how much of an overpowered Mary Sue the main female character is. But it's less about feminism and more about Japan being the best.
>>
>But of course, lately, it is obvious that Shingeki did not in fact save anime

If anything, it just showed that the problem with anime lies not with the creators but with the viewers.

Yes it did. Now there will be more cool anime and less not cool anime.

>>100183246
Watsuki produced Rurouni Kenshin all by himself too, and it has infinitely superior art to SnK.

Not saying Isayama is lazy, but he could really stand to clean up some of his art. It's hard to see what's going on at times.

The only thing deep about SnK is the hole that Isayama is digging the story.
>>
>>100182141

KlK is watched by non-anime fans? I'd have thought the fanservice would have turned them off it. I nearly stopped watching because of it.

Anyway I wouldn't categorize either of them as "saving anime" (what does anime need saving from anyway?).
>>
>>100187231
>(what does anime need saving from anyway?).
From NEETs who only watch anime because it provides them little girls to fap to.
>>
SnK takes itself way too seriously, yet can't be bothered to not make asspulls every episode. Poor pacing, episodes that feel like filler, grating music, and a generic shounen protagonist makes the show is absolute shit. The ending was 10x more disappointing than the Berserk ending. I could go on, but TL;DR is likely.

That may be true, because he hasn't officially identified himself as a gender in the series, but neither has any of the characters either. Reiner is a girl too, maybe.

I'll say this SnK manga is pretty good. And Kill la kill is mindlessly enjoyable fanservice and humor. But both anime seemed to have attracted the same terrible crowd and repeating threads that follow.

You do realize manga artist have tons of assistants? Ironically the only ones who do everything themselves are CLAMP.
