what the fuck, /a/? everyone here told me attack on titan was shit. you just hate anything popular, don't you?
And you just listen to anything vocal.
but it is
Fuck off back to >>>/v/
I read the whole manga in one sitting when the anime first started, and then I never had any motivation to watch after the first five or so episodes, since I already knew all the twists were coming.
Apparently very few SnK fans actually went and read the manga at all, since posts asking who the traitors were persisted well into the show's run.
I admit it is sort of a buzzkill once you know Colossal Titan is not anyone super-important, though. I was expecting him to be some kind of "final boss" Titan initially
Manga's a decent 7/10 if you can get over the sub par artwork.
Anime is shit.
The first few episodes are decent, then the shonenitis kicks in and it all goes down the gutter.
Why the fuck do you even care about the opinions of an anonymous internet board ?
It's yours to decide what to watch.
The thing that makes SnK art neat is that Isayama was literally drawing them and sending them out first-draft. He didn't do any editing or redrawing where he didn't have to, hence all the QUALITY panels. I heard murmurs that the entire manga was being redrawn by his more talented assistant but that might've been simply a rumor.
But more than that, the manga shows a slow evolution of real skill in Isayama's drawing. He does improve a lot. The new stuff looks much, much better than the scribbles he was drawing back when he was a teenager.
Many fans weren't even aware that SnK is years old and the creator was pretty young when it started.
Why do we have to have this kind of SnK thread every fucking day?
I don't think Eva-reaction threads are any better, yet no one ever complains about those.
In general if you are watching a show after it's already over, /a/'s opinion is irrelevant, you should watch the shows that keep your interest OP, regardless of whether we say you are "allowed" to like it.
I think there are only one or two shows that all of /a/ unanimously hates, like Guilty Crown.
Believe what you want, but there are a lot of people here that actually like it but don't actively go out of their way to do so.
I me gusta this anime
People on /a/ just tend to hate anything popular
true story bro
>to do so
to say so
It is even worse than shit. Entry level shit like KLK and Naruto
It's a popular troll thread, so why not?
Mikasa a shit
quite possibly the worst girl in any series
>"You gotta watch this man EVERYONE DIES!"
>Main character dies
>LMAO NOT REALLY
>Goku gets his driver's license
Okay, maybe calling shit is an overstatement.
But it's definitely not 'good'.
it's the Eva of our generation
i like Mikasa
I liked SnK but it's not that great it's just these fuckwit 13yo fans, noone likes them thus the anime is shit in the eyes of /a/
or im just wrong
I just got done rewatching it with my girlfriend. To be honest episodes 9-14 or so slow down a bit, but fuck, the last ten episodes really kept me gripped even the second time.
I truly believe it's impossible to not be entertained by the second half. Though I do agree the colossal and armored reveal was a bit underwhelming in the manga, I'm still interested in the direction of the overall story, what with so much left to uncover.
>Eva of our generation
You have no idea what you're saying.
Eva is objectively bad though, SnK at least is interesting.
>everyone here told me attack on titan was shit.
Compared to what? There hasn't been any good anime series in a long time.
>A small group on /a/ loves and discusses the manga before the anime
>Anime rolls around, is a big hit, wasn't a surprise to anyone who knew about the manga
>Suddenly /a/ hates SnK
It happens every time.
So the next time you wish your favorite manga got an adaptation pray it'll not be too popular.
SnKfags go back to their thread (s).
The rest of /a/ goes back to theirs.
Enough of these shitty argumentative bait threads already.
Eva is more pretentious because of its "3deep5u" plot, but you can't say it's "objectively" bad. People just like to shit on a popular series because hating on something popular makes them feel special. Also, don't forget the "I hate it because of the fanbase" bullshit.
I feel like the fags who make these threads are trying to have SnK get the Naruto treatment.
But there's no way anything will ever get the Naruto treatment again.
KLK is not entry-level, it's just popular. Fuck off.
I honestly never saw the appeal of SnK, I read the manga back when people first started shitting themselves with the manga and didn't find it all that. After the anime's surprising popularity, I went back and reread it and still didn't find it interesting.
I have personally never shitposted in a SnK thread so this is a legit question. What do you guys find so fascinating about this manga/anime?
Even Naruto isn't allowed to get the Naruto treatment anymore.
I like it it but there is just SO MUCH FILLER.
There's a self doubt montage every fucking episode.
I hope some day we get a cut without all the crap. Something fanmade would just be awesome.
Or you could read the manga.
Why? She's a competent and level-headed female hero in a series full of fujoshi bait and one-dimensional gag characters like Sasha.
Mikasa is cool, don't be a dick
>pray it'll not be too popular
why? because i'd care about the opinion of internet neckbeards? If it's popular enough it might get a second season, more material, etc. If the price to pay for all that is some butthurt on /a/ i don't really give a fuck
It's a very good anime and an awesome manga, /a/ hate it because it isn't another generic moeshit about cute littles girls doing cute things
An amazing tale about the harsh struggle that mankind must go through against this clearly superior enemy. The show is so gritty and realistic with how any character could die at any moment and the titan shifters really make you question what it means to be human...
Fuck it man I can't do it anymore. SnK is fucking shit.
EVERY FUCKING DAY.
EVERY FUCKING DAY WE DO THIS.
Do you really like talking about your shit opinions that much?
This is what happened to me. I started reading the manga shortly after the first episode, but I thought the art was atrocious. I didn't like any of the characters, so I eventually dropped it along with the show.
I assume the main appeal would be the twists and character deaths, but there are other manga with the same elements that aren't nearly as popular.
There's no such thing as an anime that isn't "entry-level".
It's a simple shounen action-adventure with some mystery. I find it entertaining.
Mostly because if you're like me who enjoyed the discussion and speculah with almost 0 shitposting you will never again have a civil thread about it here.
The entire medium itself is entry level. 99% of it is just an adaption of an LN, manga or VN - superior mediums of japanese fiction.
Holy shit you're as bad as the faggot you're replying to
It was a little different, not worth the hype, not worth the hate.
>Do you really like talking about your shit opinions that much?
Where do you think you are?
I'm not even a Mikasafag or a Levifag, but people who say they are shitty characters really lack reading comprehension, or they just hate them because they are popular.
>superior medium of fiction
WOW, that actually made me laugh out loud
What is it, anon? You don't like it when people say something bad about Evangelion?
It should get boring after months, shouldn't it?
It's just the same shit, same bait. Over and over and over.
/a/ must really fucking love this show.
It's so much of a wasted potential that I don't care if it's medicore. First episode got me hyped then BAM shounen shit out of the ass.
This is my first time on /a/ and i just watched the anime i thought it was good, and i thought i see if there would be a thread on SnK and what do you know. is /a/ always like this? maybe i should go back to /co/
You weren't saying something bad about it
Just that unnecessary inclusion of buzzword bullshit and completely retarded generalisations
>maybe i should go back to /co/
Yeah you should.
ZZ Gundam. You need to at least watch Zeta to understand what the fuck is going on, and that is already assuming you read a plot synopsis of the one year war.
Frankly, I liked how it was revealed in the manga. It wasn't some overdramatic revelation. It was just "Okay, I'm the Armored Titan and he's the Colossal Titan, we made the hole in Wall Maria 5 years ago." in a small text box off to the side. It gives you a sense of scale for just how small they are in terms of the bigger picture. It didn't play to any tropes, like "It was this really important higher-up dude with connections throughout all of society". They were just random guys. Sure, it was still characters we and the main character knew, but they just came off as normal people.
/a/ is tsundere for SnK, I thought everyone already knew that
>Everyone says it's shit
No retard, there's fucking threads for the manga all the time. Obviously no threads entirely for the anime because it's over
Stop being a spastic piece of shit and go back to /co/
/co/ was overkill though. Try again tomorrow fag.
Levi's popularity is almost entirely because of his fujoshi worshipers, though. He got so ridiculously popular that Isayama started to dress like him in public, and I heard he was getting his own spinoff manga someday as well.
>No retard, there's fucking threads for the manga all the time
and surprisingly there's little to no shitposting in them
The future is now.
There's no shitposting in them right now because all of the shitposting is taking place in THIS thread.
Exactly, because those that care stick to them
If OP lurked, wasn't a dipshit and didn't start his thread in this manner then he could have his little discussion.
You hear 'Telling people to lurk fixes nothing'
Well look at this shit thread
What "retarded generalisations"? You mean it isn't true that Eva is more pretentious than SnK? I watched it like 10 years ago, and even back then I could tell it was something which tried too hard to be "deep", even without using "buzzwords".
I'm not saying it was objectively bad, though. In fact, I also enjoyed it.
>implying OP isn't a baiting shit
There's no fucking way someone would unintentionally make another one of these threads. There's no way they take place every day by coincidence.
Too bad this bait is too tasty for /a/ to resist.
In terms of LNs, or the anime they are adapted from, yes, they are.
They're still trashy overall, though.
Cat Soup, Angel's Egg, A Country Doctor
I remember when Eren, Armin, and Mikasa were the 3 main characters.
Fuck Levi for stealing Armin's spot as a main character.
Correct my ignorance if I am wrong, but-- aren't LNs written to be dispensable train-ride reading material?
Back when Toradora was airing people kept saying that.
>check new manga chapter
>armin has been demoted to jailbait trap
Isn't he supposed to be their prodigal strategist? Does he just not have a role to fill anymore?
I agree he's WAY more popular than he deserves, but he's a good character. I really hate the fact that his popularity puts in the shade everyone else, though.
He was going to take Erwin's place eventually. But the trap thing really fucked with his character huh.
Maybe the fujos have saved Erwin as well and Armin will be meaningless like the other humans.
Irrelevant, I mean. He's going the way of Jean.
is there a raid?
Hmm yeah I guess I agree with that.
What really got to me was how much of a crappy character Annie was. All I saw from /a/ were constant threads about her. She's just a boring plot device with no real personality and we just see a vague flashback of muh daddy issues. Then I read the manga to see what the deal was and she's just an irrelevant crystal.
Do you not understand the concept of "stoicism"? She keeps her emotions under the surface, which gives it more impact when she does express herself.
>existential black vs white moral debates with Armin
>voluntarily teaches Eren to defend himself despite her mission being better off with him helpless and ineffective
>unrepentant mass-murderer who laughs at the suffering she's caused because she doesn't know how else to respond
She was raised to kill people, but she still shows strong traces of humanity.
Her crystallization was showing a Titan's "last resort" ability, and foreshadowed the Titan-hardening power which the Wall Titans use and later Eren uses as well.
She's also quite attractive design-wise. Bear in mind also that the SnK anime is an adaptation of a manga from at least five years ago. And they're not even close to caught up with any of the recent chapters.
Don't belive on /a/, bro!
Let's watch naruto togeher.
I am, but I still want the anime to be good.
The fight scenes are amazing in the anime. In that regard the manga can't compete.
In my opinion, the only "crappy" character is Bertholdt. He really has no likeable traits, but we'll have to see if and how Isayama will develop his character.
There are plenty of good LNs.
Worst thing about Attack on Titan is it's fanbase. Even on /a/. Anniefags, fujoshits and Ymirfags should all just kill themselves for the greater good. Jeanfriends are OK.
I agree with everything except the Jean part.
Anniefags and Ymirfags ruined SnK threads for me.
BRA-fags and antiBRA-fags ruined the threads more than anyone else. Also, random shitposters discussing crackships just for the sake of trolling, and last but not least, faggots complaining about how shit the threads have become.
I wish I could shoot every single Ymirfags brains out.
Is it because they're yurifags, refuse to accept her flaws, or that a large portion of them are bandwagonning shits who jumped on after that last bonus chapter?
But you can be a characterfag even if this character has a lot of flaws. See Anniefags, for example. Your speech makes no sense at all, although I agree characterfags are often obnoxious.
It's not normal characterfaggotry.
You make a criticism about Ymir and the brigade will come out and argue with you. Worst off is they all interpret her actions and words in different ways, so even if you make a point to one person, there's always the other faggot who "saw it" as being motivated in a completely different way.
This happens with all characters, anon. If you say something against a character, and you don't say that for the sake of shitposting, everyone is free to debate whether you may have a point or not. It's not like your opinion is better than any other else's when it comes to interpret a character's action.
Anyway trust me, BRA are much much worse when it comes to discussing their actions. Both BRA haters and BRA apologizers are a bunch of moronic shitposters, the Levi/Mikasa/Ymir shitposting war comes up only when you say something totally retarded against them.
why did Annie do this?
gr8 b8 m8
>Necrobumping a shitty thread
Why did you do this?
She didn't. That was just anime only crap.
What are you saying? Annie also saved Connie in the manga.
It's pretty obvious they had to kill all the titans to get out of there alive, without revealing themselves. It was to save herself just as much as the rest of them.
I just caught up, what characters do people circlejerk here?
BRA could've easily let the titan kill all the others and after that transform into titans themselves
It would have killed them as well. It's not like it's just going to ignore them and eat everyone else first. Stop being dense.
How the fuck would it have killen them?
Seeing how Eren could transform only a single limb, Reiner could've just transformed his Arm and squish that titan like a toy
>2 episodes to move a rock.
The reality is that it's good if you don't think too hard, and /a/ tends to really spend way too much time and energy on shows like this. It is a dramatic shounen with a pretty novel concept and good characters for the most part, of course it's going to attract fans. The manga is better, but the anime is really quite good apart from a couple of shit animations.
Just don't listen to /a/ ever at all unless it's someone telling you it's good, because you NEED to watch things yourself in order to see if you'll like it. Some people hate it because it's popular or because of the fanbase.
And then blown his cover, making the entire infiltration thing pointless. You're not really thinking this through. Not to mention that's exactly how Ymir killed their friend, so it's not a given and Eren was just lucky.
Watch episode 13 again. Its so damn bad, and painfully obvious they were running on change and all the budget for the first cour was used. Several times with half rendered effects, several freeze frames with missing backgrounds, a dozen flipped and reused shots. Its also kind of a huge slap to the face having that long dragged out arc come to a close on a QUALITY episode.
Watch the BD, they corrected the QUALITY and the missing animation.
We hate it because it's the hero anime deserves but not the one it needs right now so we'll hunt it.
Or maybe because its art is shit and it's fucking stupid.
