Got done watching the first episode of Attack on Titan. Is it even possible to be older than 14 and liking this? What a cliché-riddled first episode that was filled with anime tropes. Nothing about it stood out save the setting and brutality. What's with everyone going crazy about this show?

Also, everyone's constantly screaming.
>>
You are watching a cartoon man.
>>
The first episode was the best one.
>>
>>100286463
Plenty of good cartoons out there. If the brutality warrants an adult rating, then atleast write the story in a more mature manner aswell. Every single character introduced was just a stereotype.
>>
>>100286531
It's aimed at teens.
>>
>>100286428
The characterisation never gets much better, at least not within the limits covered in the show.
>>
>>100286571
Alright, then I atleast know it's not something for me. Had a friend told me this was the best anime he had seen. Opinions definitely not shared with me.
>>
>>100286428

What did you expected from Naruto 2?
>>
Believe it or not that is actually the best episode of this tripe.
>>
>>100286598
It's entertaining enough to keep reading it but no it's not that great.
Also "... is the best ever" is a sentence I dislike.
>>
What cliches? What are the anime tropes? What is this, another circlejerk of SnK hate with no backbone whatsoever? Impossible.
>>
>>100286758
>What cliches
Young boy wants to see the world and become a soldier but his family won't allow him. He's also very open-minded.

In every other scene, there's a forced scene of people crying for no reason. If they've been living like this for 100 years, surely they would've learnt to deal with loss better than start crying every time the word Titan is mentioned.

The dialouge itself is so predictable and boring, I could've had it alt-tabbed and not missed shit.

>another circlejerk of SnK hate with no backbone whatsoever?
I don't usually come to /a/ so I have no idea what you're talking about, but if this show is disliked, then I would definitely understand why.
>>
>>100286598
it's certainly not the best.
Although i hated the first episode too, i gave it another chance later on and it grew on me i guess

The manga is a little better if you can overlook the artwork.
>>
>>100286478
Yeah I'm definitely not as into the show now that I'm on ep 7 but I'd reccomend watching the first ep WITHOUT the introduction to completely fucking ruin it.

Actually, Eren may be one of the most original characters in the show. Ep 6 made me like him.

>In every other scene, there's a forced scene of people crying for no reason. If they've been living like this for 100 years, surely they would've learnt to deal with loss better than start crying every time the word Titan is mentioned.
That was forced, but it wasn't that bad. Just to get you in the mood.

Anyway, you should continue to ep 7, shit gets pretty good.
>>
Drop it now OP. The direction only worked for Death Note, with SnK it just makes everything more ridiculous and cringeworthy.
>>
You guys are hipsters. It's not like anime ever gets better than this, stop acting like it's not always melodramatic and lacking in plot structure every single fucking time.
>>

>Young boy wants to see the world and become a soldier but his family won't allow him.

Well, it's the opposite from your typical "I'm just an average highschool boy who wants to live an average boring life but a loads of beautiful women clinging to my legs rubbing their pussy juices all over me won't let me"-protagonist.

I just want to say Sasha Blouse's presence as a background character is intolerable.

No I don't give a shit if she dies, it won't even be minorly sad like Dobby's death. And I don't give a shit about her past or her character development.

Stop watching the show.

Only read the manga chapters where Monkey Trouble makes an appearance.

Yep. He's a nice guy and he's obsessed with his titan slaughtering dream. Some people would call him edgy, but I think his anger at titans is justified if you look at what these bastards do.
He's not the most original character of the show, but to me he's the most outstanding.
>>
>>100291692
No.
He's literally Spiderman and Goku at the same time.

>watch first ova today
>mfw this hanji bitch wanting to carelessly throw away lives

I'd probably watch this anime just to see levi wreck shit

Even if that were true that isn't really saying much

go to watch the comic

Without titan attacks. Therefore at least a full generation has not experienced loss like they do throughout the series. Think about stuff, eh?
>>
>>100291356
Oh wow they look exactly the same and seem really annoying so I got them confused.
>>
>>100286428
Personally I blame the studio. Such scenes were bearable in the manga but the anime's style was too "loud" and showy to keep them out of cheese territory.
>>
>>100291728
Don't forget about Shinji Ikari, Naruto, Gon, Ichigo, Edward Elric, Shō Fukamachi etc.

my advice
if you can stand the anime, read the manga
The anime exaggerated a shit tons of crap, including characterization, which sadly includes Hanji because Araki can't subtlety
If you can't stand the initial chicken scratch, just drop the whole thing alltogether

>>100291738
My favorite Levi scene was where he becam sanic.

The only acceptable way to like this show is to consider it a visual analysis of human fear by disassembling the show into an interplay of symbolism.
If you are not a massive and pretentious hipster, or are only a regular hipster, then you might not like it and find it cliched.

Eh it's not too difficult to understand, it's really not that terrible unless you're just looking for things to complain about. After episode 11 It's starting to feel a little like a mech show though.

Trost was unbearable, so was the finalee
Can't believe they cut down so much on training arc either
>>
The only thing that annoy me would be the story tries to delay the mystery element and possible the mystery itself. Cause whatever the secret behind the titan church and the police people it is going to be stupid to some degree

Fucking this. The one episode where the MC trio were being threatened with a cannon was the fucking most unbearable thing I've ever seen, because of THAT ONE BEARDED GUY WHO WAS CONSTANTLY SCREAMING AND STARING WITH DEAD EYES BECAUSE THAT'S SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME FEEL TENSION OR DRAMA OR SOMETHING.
I stopped watching the show for a good month or so after that.
