How does /a/ feel about the attack on titan? I want them to make more honestly, develop the story a little more.

replies, and I agree that it's overrated and the anime is way too decompressed, but there's been worse to come out of 2013.

Yeah, I expected that. I just want to know more about the titans. Would've been cooler that way imo.

It was ok as a mindless action show.

I didn't read the manga because I'm not that interested in the plotline or anything else, so I can't comment on that. The anime suffered from some really bad pacing issues and a lot of things came off as asspulls. I still had fun watching but it's nowhere near as good as some people make it out to be.

Imho this would have been far better if it was set in a late WW1 era.

No fucking shit, it's what happens to every manga that becomes popular.

Author has story in mind, begins writing, becomes way more popular than he ever imagined (in SnK's case due to the anime), and he switches to milking the series for everything it's worth instead of continuing it in it's original direction.

At first it was interesting. Lots of genuine surprising moments and twists. But then when each character has a serious revelation monologue every episode it gets just a little old.

How do I feel? I feel like what tumblr does to gifs can be legally qualified as rape in several nations.

>>100374918
Coincidentally around the time it aired the plot in the manga had gone full retard and there was a lot of backlash. But the manga threads that sucked so much cock were very small and very infrequent. They also didn't think it was the greatest thing ever, just a fun little story that wasn't as good as it could have been. It was a pretty fun place to be compared to the mess that came about when the whole board got in on it.

SnK caused the biggest influx of newfags since Naruto.

Personally, the biggest issue I had with the series were the main characters. Flat shonen stereotypes, for the most part.

Otherwise, I really enjoyed it.

Bert is the colossal titan and Reiner is the armored titan.

>>100375524
thats pretty fucking obvious if you pay attention in the anime anyway

I loved it until everyone was Titans.

I could deal with Eren as a Titan (barely) but when Annie showed up it was an insta-drop.

It's a shame I think that they had to ruin what would have been a great story with teenage gundam-esq shenanigans but I guess that's Japan for you.

Haruhui>Naruto>SnK

At least SnK is hard to cosplay so I won't have to suffer that as much as I do those faggots doing that stupid dance or wearing headbands
>>
>>100374551
the anime:

very slow plot

three episodes spent on wall

repeated dialogue

still frames

the manga:

not the best drawing i ever saw, but it's better than i can do, so who am i to critique it.

otherwise good.

>/a/ used so suck SnK's cock so much until it got popular with the normalfags.
This is a joke right? Every thread was about how fucking bad the art was.
>>
My main problem with the anime is how they blew the budget real fast and had to make up for it left and right later on and reuses shots several times an episode. I'm not saying all the later episodes were bad, but certain ones in particular are filled to the brim with QUALITY. Just re-watch episode 13, there are several parts that are half rendered and still frames left and right.

>>
>>100375730
But that's every show ever.

Animators are fully aware of the "three episode rule" and will use the majority of the budget on the first few episodes to get people hooked. After that, it's just about riding off that success and hoping the budget is strong enough for the last 2 episodes.

That's just how the current industry is.
>>
>>100375706
This.

Every thread was about how bad the art was and how stupid it was that Eren got typical battle shounen super powers.

>>100374551
There's already a thread about it. Stay in one thread.

It's garbage marketed towards filth.

All of the high school kids were raving about SnK (and still are.) My Friend's nephew who is basically Kevin Federline loved it and said it was an absolute smash hit among his friends.
>>
>>100376206

I don't think judging the work by it's fan is very useful. I doubt the show was marketed toward "Kevin Federline" clones.

The actual quality of the series is another debate.
>>
>>100374551

It started out great. The main character was a confident boss. The pacing was fast and overall quality was awesome. I was surprised that I was actually enjoying a show as much as I was enjoying this show.

Then it turned to shit. The main character turned into an indecisive shit, the pacing ceased to exist and I stopped enjoying it. I only finished the show because I was hoping the quality would return but it never did and I don't give a fuck if they make any more episodes or not.
>>
>>100375352
This guy speaks truth
>>
The manga art is fucking atrocious, the characters have no development, and the other characters are just there for the sake of getting killed off. The mangaka has an ENTIRE FUCKING MONTH to draw it. Kishimoto draws better than him and he only has like a week to draw with every new chapter he releases. Only reason why my friends like it is because of the people that get killed.

>>100376206
I'm glad my nephew thinks it shit and reads JoJo's Bizarre Adventures.

It became awful once everything became titans.

This was true. When the first episode aired, I actually argued against SnK in an image-bump limit thread sucking its cock, and people were lining up to take a swing at me. With a lot of things censord out, I was told that it is not possible to truly have a decent opinion on SnK after only watching the first few episodes. After running from the mountain of green text in the thread and telling /a/ it would change its mind, I watched the rest of the series. After finishing the series, I reversed my opinion and I now like it semi-ironically. The only acceptable way to appreciate Shingeki on Eotania is to recognize it as a work full of symbolism that convincingly weaves a tapestry of human emotion . I apologize for being a pretentious faggot. I still don't think it is possible to objectively like the series if you only see a few episodes.

Not any more than any other series (see pic related). And that doesn't change the fact that people will still be wearing tan bomber jackets and leather skirts instead of ninja headbands, poorly or not.

People who came during Haruhi aren't newfags any more. That was I don't remember how many years ago.

>>100375352
This thread is a perfect example of this. >>100374551 This retard doesn't even know the anime series came from a manga, and I'm willing to bet 90% of SnK fags don't know that. And seriously?
>I want them to make more honestly, develop the story a little more.
I don't even know where to start.
>>
>>100377570
Every anime from IG suffered from QUALITY when it was airing, remember Gargantia and Psycho-Pass? But SnK's episode 13 was a first. At least the BD looks good.

Let's face it, it's always better to dislike anime. If the anime is shit, you have the correct opinion on it. If the anime is great, you can pretend you're a hipster.
But if you like an anime, and it is shit, you're opinion is shit. And if it becomes popular, you're still shit for being mainstream.
>>
I watched the anime for the last few days. Through all the anime I was thinking:
>Implying Titans already there
>How did they build the wall (so fast)?
>>
>>100374918
>implying it didn't become shit as the series progressed
People always make this argument that /a/ loved SNK until it got popular with normies and then hated it, but it started off strong with the interesting premise and apocalyptic environment that brought out the animalistic side of people that we all posess when in times of intense crisis, but also our ability to care for one another. However, starting with the trost arc and really Eren gaining the ability to transform into a titan it turned into shounenshit, so /a/ understandably stopped liking it.
>>
>>100378874
All anime is shit, I don't see why anyone should somehow have a higher animu palette just because they like one shitty show out of a mass of shitty shows.
>>
I kind of hoped Eren really died and they changed the story to Mikasa beeing MC.
>>
>>100376152
What a fucking lie. There was literally new snk threads every fucking hour or so. Its how i even started reading it was because /a/ was treating this shit like the second coming of god and i ignored it for so long until i finally gave in to the hype. You couldn't have been any more wrong. Its only until it got an anime announced that /a/ started hating it.

I hate it mostly because there were shit ton of mysteries, unknown motivations etc. And after seeing it through I don't know shit.
I don't know why, how or anything about an antagonist. Also most characters were painfully generic with the Mikasa beeing worst of all.
So I didn't care about protagonist nor antagonist. I guess the 3d gear stuff was nice and the world looks neat.

Long story short, it's shit.
>>
>>100379186
The titans collectively serve as the antagonists.
Moreover, the driving question ("Just WTF are titans?") is not meant to be answered in a jiffy. It makes sense, since they had very little opportunities to study the titans. So in a sense, it mirrors how scientific knowledge expands IRL: we solve a puzzle little by little, sometimes with disastrous consequences.
>>
>>100379186
It's not like the story is finished anyway.
>>
>>100377842
You can like it, just not claim it's good.
The thing is, it's like all shounen.
Bleach is popular because it's retarded and people know it.
Titan just transitioned from being interesting to being retardedly fun.

It's not a brilliant series, it's enjoyable. It gets a lot of hate because it became flavor of the month in 2013. The anime accelerated this hate cause the anime had even worse pacing than the manga.
