Shingeki no Kyojin thread.
Nips released episodes 17-19 BD comparisons, get ready for some QUALITY.
Sure that didn't get swapped? The BD version is censored.
No it didn't get swapped.
Jesus, they really do go all out for this shit show.
Am I blind or what because I dont see much of a difference, and tbh some TV looks better than the BD changes
They fucked up Eren on the 3rd.
If you can't see the difference it's because they changed something related to the animation, and it's quite hard to show it on a screenshot.
oh shit she looks crossed eyed as fuck in the top ha
Always wondered why the studios dont just draw shit right the first time so they dont have to make changed in the BD releases, and instead have mini shorts and stuff in the BD release.
Confirmed for titan.
Productions are extremely rushed, they just don't have the time to draw.
>draw shit in advanced
>implying they have money to pay animators that long
dem krista sparkles
Production IG underestimated how tough it is to draw 3DMG scenes. Not only did they underestimate the time it took to animate Shingeki, they also went over-budget.
That's why 1-2 months after the premiere, they put up HELP WANTED ads, and the number of animators doubled in the credit list of episode 6.
Yeah, if Shingeki wasn't such a big hit from the start, Pony Canyon and Kodansha wouldn't have increased Production IG's budget and most episodes would have looked like episode 19.
I want to say that that's ocular convergence, but that looks like a bit too much
it's still appears derpy as fuck
Well maybe they learned their lesson for s2.
How well are the BD's doing?
SnK is a gateway anime of the worst kind. It's a bad series, a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive badly animated TITANS and DARKNESS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the series itself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of its core make it a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable man babbys who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look cool, the, peculiar, colorful titans, the whole edgy faggotry and everything about the SnK world fuels their escapist fantasies, while the pity-party character backgrounds, emphasis on revenge, and overall shityness of the series make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average young adult and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes man babby retards eat this shit right the fuck up.
SnK is basically THE series to attract the most hated anime fanbase known to /a/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to troll the fuck out of this show and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no SnK threads ever encourage the newfriends to show their faces here.
Was there any censorship in the anime? It felt like some of it was either obscured by angles or simply skipped. I don't remember for sure, though. It haven't watched it since it aired.
That's why no S2 announcement.
55600 average BD-DVD. When volume 7 numbers come out, I expect 38k first week, which will drop the average to 53k. Maybe it will get back up to 55k by the time Levi's volume releases.
>How well are the BD's doing?
Best selling TV anime of 2013, with a current average of ~53k. Saison 2 is inevitable.
>Was there any censorship in the anime?
The anime is just not as gory as the manga. Most of the deaths were not shown.
Since that 1000+ USD BJD Levi sold out in 1-2 days, I expect volume 8 to crack 50k.
The manlet's just too popular. Animage Feb. 2014 cover is Levi solo.
>Since that 1000+ USD BJD Levi sold out in 1-2 days, I expect volume 8 to crack 50k.
I wouldn't be so sure, volume 6 with Levi's VN "only" sold 47k.
>dat perfectly flat 3d textured ground
I miss Bert, Reiner, and Annie. Not Ymir though.
>not recognising the copypasta
Doesn't the randomly scattered blood pretty much confirm that the the blood and thus the steam came from Annie's hand being cut though? If it were due to him being crushed, I think it would be a bit more than that...
Of course it's not his own blood.
What the fuck did they do to Reiner's face in these.
The anime litteraly used the manga as a storyboard, and Reiner had some really funny faces during the FT arc.
Pick one. And ignore the sameface syndrome.
since when does mikasa have blue hair and blue eyes?
>mfw you'll never be complimented on how you smell today
I know the pain, anon ;_;
Mikasa or Potato-chan.
Who's subbing the BDs?
FFF using gg's subs
FFF are doing a release, I think they use gg subs. Coalgirls are doing one with modified Evetaku subs.
Yeah. Too bad Murata's editor didn't let him work on it though.
Thanks anons. I want to give SnK another chance, I dropped it at episode 13. It wasn't that bad.
Volume 6 is 46k+, may be able to get to 50k. I expect it to have a better tail than volume 5 which is the weakest of the lot.
According to Stalker, the numbers for volume 8 is around volume 6's numbers, if it maintains these rankings for the next month.
We'll see how volume 7 does first. I was surprised how quickly it accumulated points on Stalker in about two weeks. It had barely made the Amazon 2013 Top 100 so I didn't expect its stalker numbers to overtake volume 5 which got to about mid-50 on the list 2 weeks before its release date.
Maybe 7 is overestimated. Then again, it's been holding its Amazon rankings pretty steadily during first week, so maybe it will make enough first week sales to keep it from being overestimated.
>The anime is just not as gory as the manga. Most of the deaths were not shown.
They also replaced Mikasa's tattoo/ burn mark thingy with with an embroidery technique, which is odd considering the scene wasn't gory at all to begin with.
Tattoos are associated with the Yakuza in Japan. Probably changed to make it more kid-friendly.

It's hard to predict based on Oricon's daily rankings. Based on this, it would like 6 sold less than 5. Of course, 6 had more strong competition than 5 did during first week.
As for 7, probably not a lot of strong releases this week.
> A series where it's not uncommon for characters to die horrible gruesome deaths
Even if they don't show all the deaths in their horrible gory detail calling it kid-freindly (implying little kids) is pushing it.
I've been under the impression that this series is aimed at high school/college age.
Kid-Friendly is the wrong term to use.
It's probably to deter the Moral Guardians. They wouldn't want the last surviving Asian to be from a Yakuza clan.

Just added the rest for comparison.
Shingeki threads are still around?
Why'd they remove the pretty lighting from Levi's face, and in the last one reduce Eren's expression? Dumb nips.
I only miss Ymir
>and in the last one reduce Eren's expression
In the TV version his face screams QUALITY.
And they used to be so active. What happened?
Nothing to discuss about. Chapter 53 has been discussed to death, no new chapter from the spin off, Levi VN's translation is slow, no interview,... the only thing left is the TV/BD comparisons and the shipping war.
Crossborders aren't here constantly
>Levi VN's translation is slow
Due to some IRL events, the Shingeki no Kyojin VN Translation Project will have to be put on hold for the next couple of months. Terribly sorry for the delay, but there’s some important stuff I need to focus on right now. I’ll try stuff in some time for this in between, though unfortunately I can’t make any promises.
>On another note, while possibly slowed down as well, A Choice With No Regrets and Tales of Academia will still mostly maintain their present schedule.
But other chapters were also discussed to death during the first week and the threads remained active during the whole month.
You say that like its a bad thing. SnK threads are complete shit outside of the ones that take place shortly before and after a new chapter.
Yeah it's a bad thing. They used to be entertaining.
>the threads remained active during the whole month.
90% of those threads were shipping wars and tumblr art.
>endless "muh waifu" "BRA did nothing wrong" and "Princess Ymir is best shingeki" shitposting
God damn that makes me want to kill myself. Never post this again, my soul can't take it.
Of course /a/non.
Mainstream viewers have other things to do. Not that Shingeki doesn't have otaku viewers. It's just that things aren't going to be as busy with just the diehard fans talking.
Remember when there was that one discussion thread a few weeks ago
Like, actual discussion about the manga/anime
Story and all
No "muh beautiful trap Armin" shit or anything
That was good. I liked that.
>not liking the trap!Armin fallout threads
Shingeki gets new story material around the 9th, the 26th and 28th of the month. 5th to 9th is when the fandom is most active.
It's a monthly manga, not weekly.
They cut out the best part.
I know I'm on the internet.
I know I'm on 4chan.
I know I'm on /a/.
I know the difference between bait and reality (usually).
But I can honestly say I have no attraction to penis, regardless of whose it is. Anyone born with a penis, real or fictional, I consider male. For this reason, I am not fond of "traps", "dickgirls", "futa" or whatever you want to call it. And I don't like threads about it. Just my personal preference.
>Inb4 not being a faggot in 2014 blah blah blah
Oh fuck. I've seen the Levi VN, but I only know half of what's going on. Something to look forward to I guess.
Please tell me the Eren and Arimin will end p together.... Please!
They are just slower.
I blame recent shitposting. I mean, people were discussing about tumblr, you can't get worse than that.
>But I can honestly say I have no attraction to penis,
>not pansexual master race
No you faggot, Armin will end up with Jean. That's how it has to be.
Eren a shit.
What the fuck is pansexual? Is that some kind of tumblr thing again?
It's pretty much, "if it's cute, fuck it." Gender and genitals don't matter, fuck everything. Idgaf what tumblr thinks it is.
Envy is ugly Anon.
Actually it also gets fairly active around the 2nd to the 5th but it's usually all spoiler time shitposting
I instantly thought of this when I read that
>Eren a shit.
You take that Back!
I want to be sliced up by Mikasa
Talk bad about her husbando Eren then.
Apparently there's going to be a SnK S2 announcement in April.
Source? The only thing expected in April is the 2nd OAV.
Good thing he finally got his cup
Hey guys I know I'm late, but how did they handle Eren's severed arm towards the camera when he was in Gentoo Titan's stomach?
Still black bullshit or did they actually draw all the bone and torn muscles?
Heard it from a friend I came here to see if it was true but even you guys don't know anything.
Still black bullshit. Don't expect any gore from the BD.
I'm waiting for a version of this when Akame ga Kill gets an anime.
What the fuck.
2/10 will not buy
I'm fapping to this excellent guro right now.
Thanks based anon
I doubt there will be a second season announcement that soon, unless they decided to make it one cour.
why are the production values so shit?
why is the direction non-existent?
Think about how much the anime could have been improved if they decided to stick around with animating 22 episodes.
>no more 24,25
>no more 21 forced drama
>no more Trost shit pacing
>>no more 21 forced drama
Fuck you, 21 wa sa great episode.
I don't need an entire episode dedicated to people weeping to monks dying.
Fuck, that Ivan subplot still pissed me off.
That's episode 22, not 21.
>non existent direction
I meant the scene with Levi's squad's death and Eren transforming and fighting Annie.
I hope they will added frames focusing on Annie, especially her crying part.
>no more Trost shit pacing
the pacing in trost arc was actually good compared to the pacing in the rest of the series
this anime is complete shit. And it didnt need to be. If only someone actually competent had been picked to animate this, maybe we would have had a half decent show
I hope they add all the Annie scenes who were removed.
>EMA pissing over themselves for an entire episode to figure out what to do while the deer guy points guns at them
Which scenes are you talking about exactly?
The scenes in the flashback arc with her an Eren.
>Which scenes are you talking about exactly?
Annie and Eren's second fight during the training, and a part of her discussion with Marlo.
Probably not. ;_;
So far the BD fixes didn't add any lines or anything, and look at how much they omitted from Annie.
Why did they decide it would be a good idea to cut her speech?
To foreshadow the corruption of the military Police? Her speech was replaced by that scene with two soldiers from the military police trying to corrupt Marlo.
Why did they decide it would be a good idea to fuck up the walls are titans scene
Exactly, they completely fucked up Annie's character.
>Marco died from alcohol poisoning
>Shitty copy pasta.
Even if I agree with it, it is still shitposting.
Posting shit taste is also shitposting.
The Annie VN will never get translated
Who the hell cares?
>tfw never gonna get to know the name of my waifu
The manga is published in a shounen magazine, so it's aimed at young boys.
Those releases are actually looking pretty nice, especially with all of the facial fixes. The loss of the light dappling in the forest is sad and all, but the lighting was pretty inconsistent with that. Thanks for sharing OP.
People with good taste care
People with good taste only care about this, not the shitty non-canon faggottry.
I do care. I want to know more about Annie.
It would be a legitimate argument if it had a dad daughter moment just before the mission, see the titan village or something, but it's going to be borderline otome shit like >>100544590
and knowing how the MP showers every day. It doesn't even look like it has groundbreaking character development for her if you're looking for that
No, I just enjoy having more Annie. It's as simple as that.
Whatever, I respect your opinion even if I don't share it.
Your opinion might be utter shit but I respect it too
Episodes 10-13 were the worst part because the anime team was retarded.
All the people who dropped it did so during these episodes.
Then it starts getting better again.
Hopefully they won't do the same to the second season too.
From what I've seen, there's always at least one thread up, which is what has been happening from the beginning.
We're in the middle of the month though, so there's not much to discuss anyway.
But the threads are still around, every day for many months now. Unless you can't recognize manga threads.
The anime team was indeed retarded, but there is also the fact that almost nothing happened during those episodes.
Season 2 will be way faster if WIT doesn't fuck up. Thinking about it, this will be one wild ride. If they cover chapters 34-50 in one cour, shit will get real in every episode.
This is truly some quality thread.
Thanks Moot for allowing Generals to exist.
I do. Do I count?
Of course not.
>The anime team was indeed retarded, but there is also the fact that almost nothing happened during those episodes.
That's why I said they're retarded.
They should have sped up the pacing there, but they wanted to end the first cour with the boulder, so they had to add filler and stuff.
Truly a horrible choice, it's not like a boulder is important enough for it to be the cour finale.
Not an Anniefag, but I'd also really like to get to know more about Annie's relationship with her dad.
I mean, when girls usually have a daddy complex in mango and animu, it's usually the result of them being abandoned or ignored by their daddy but it seems like Annie and her dad were really close.
That being said, it really makes me wonder what could have happened for her dad to hate everyone else so much and drive into Annie's head that it's them two against the world.
Looking forward a lot to Annie's backstory.
Her name is Annie.
>it's not like a boulder is important enough for it to be the cour finale.
The boulder was important, it was humanity's first victory. Ending the first cour here was perfect, but they fucked up with bad fillers.
I doubt they were really that close. He forced her to do martial arts and forced her to go out on a dangerous mission that could end up meaning her death.
Ending it there was a good idea, but they should have spaced the pacing a little.
The first episodes had amazing pacing, and then during 10-12 it was terribly slow.
They could at least have some relevant filler, not Jean.
Jean filler is always annoying.
I hope you're looking forward to Jean filler in Utgard.
I don't think he forced her to do martial arts, he just taught her what he knew as a child. I see it as a good bonding activity, rather than something Annie dreaded. Moreover, Annie seems to recall it with a smile on her face, so I think it was something she enjoyed doing.
As for sending her on a mission, he did apologised to her while crying, so I think someone else took that decision and Annie's dad could do nothing but agree.
>Jean filler is always annoying.
Just watched episodes 1-10 last night.
Great stuff, I must say, but I honestly wasn't expecting most of the titans to look so human-like. I thought they would all be skinless, like the Colossal Titan.
Haji got breast implants, today was a good day.
I'll never be ready for this.
BRYH filler, on the other hand...
The colossal titan (and colossal titans in general) might be like that because of the height, since the human inside can't generate skin for such a big titan.
Or something like that.
Welcome to our autism.
There seem to be various types of titans, with some of them having quite specialised skills and abilities. We still don't know what that means, but some of us think that may hint to various ways/serums of titan transformation.
Also, read the manga carefully once you finish the anime.
I'm still confused about that pic.
How does that not exceed the byte size limit...
Thanks to you guys, I just started reading the manga after watching some of SnK episodes while having an idea on what's happening so far in the manga.
>implying anyone has any idea of what's going on in the manga currently.
>implying that's a bad thing
Bedsides, if you read the manga again, you will pick up some things that you may not have picked up in the anime.
Oh, speaking of which, I'd recommend you to stay away from these threads until you are up to date with the manga or you'll be spoiled beyond belief.
Same here. Back on 2012, I saw the Volume 1 cover, read a sum-up and thought my heart couldn't take this. Then I got on the SnK hype train in May. Boy was I wrong.
Bert is the Colossal titan and Reiner is the Armored titan.
What chapter are you on and who's your favorite?
That was rude Anon.
1 minute is all it took.
Shouldn't havecome into the threads
Hey at least they mentioned nothing about Annie, Ymir or Historia.
SEASON 2 WHEN?
I personally believe that regular titans are creepier than the colossal ones, looks-wise.
The colossals look like a skinned human, while the regular ones look like oversized babies with downs.
It was a little stupid, but that doesn't mean you aren't a shit.
/r/ing that image of a titan-looking human lying down in a forest.
We'll probably get news of it once the manga is at chapter 65-70 or so.
How long till that?
I don't care. I enjoyed the feeling of spoiling a newfag.
That Annie is the Female Titan, Ymir a titan and that Christa's real name is Historia and that she's from an important noble family connected to titans?
I actually agree with you on everything here. SnK is just Naruto 2.0
Some of them are really fucked up. I mean, just think of those guys with MT that were fighting over Mike.
I know you guys know more than I do at of this moment.
Thanks for the heads'up, I will try to read as much as I can so I can see the events with my own eyes instead of just reading here.
It feels better to see how it happened instead of just knowing it.
Yeah, I kinda knew that cause of threads here.
Chapter 5 which I have noticed that it starts with the Battle of Trost way earilier than the anime which threw me off at 1st, but it's cool.
As for my favorites, Annie and Mikasa since I find them the best looking women there. But I like mostly everyone and is neutral to the rest.
Not to mention a lot of people die so It sucks having someone you like or think is cool is killed but what can you do about it?
We're at chapter 53 now, so at least a year, maybe a year and a half.
Oh god what
Do you think anyone disagrees? Just look at the fucker's redesign >>100525199 they only tweaked the eyes from cat eyes to cold stare and I think it will hunt me in nightmares.
Probably in another year or so, based on the current output rate of 1 chapter per month.
Agreed on the Annie/Mikasa part, they're fucking gorgeous, abs and all.
The manga has the trost arc earlier because it show the training arc later.
>Not to mention a lot of people die so It sucks having someone you like or think is cool is killed but what can you do about it?
>likes both Annie and Mikasa
My African-American brother!
Chapter 60 is is 7 months. SEVEN MONTHS!!!!
Fuck the anime art is shit to Jean.
Jean is shit? Yeah I agree.
Once it hits chapter 60, it'll have been running for at least five years. I try not to think about how long the wait is for monthly series.
But he looks much better in the anime.
>one year till season 2
Wasn't this supposed to be the next naruto?
This your first monthly manga?
Not only do they have attractive bodies, but I really have a thing for Girls with the stoic, but tough as hell personality and in Mikasa's case, a violent protective streak over their loved ones.
This is how I felt when Levi's 1st squad when he was defending Eren from Annie and Eren's group in the Battle of Trost.
Also, I truly thought that Eren was dead.
I did said they will need about 65-70 chapters for the second season, considering they took 33 for the first season, and they had to insert a shitton of fillers.
Your reading comprehension could use some work.
>Also, I truly thought that Eren was dead.
You are pretty retarded son.
Jean still a big shit.
No, but I don't read a lot of them either.
But the promo pictures look terrible.
The only person who's worse off is Levi, who receives the body of a little boy half of the time.
To be fair, I read one manga where the main Protag died so forgive there for thinking that.
>implying Levi is not a little boy
>a violent, obsessive protective streak over their loved ones.
Best thing in a girl, ever.
That being said, so far we don't have a confirmation of Annie having abs or not.
But on the weird side, Eren apparently has an 8-pack.
Most of the times I end up dropping monthly manga but I haven't been able to do the same thing with SnK.
But he does have the body of a little boy. Little boys can also work out.
I liked the Jean fillers in the first cour, even though I knew nothing was going to happen to him. On the other hand, all the other fillers were useless and annoying.
>It sucks having someone you like or think is cool is killed but what can you do about it?
Crying in a fetal position is always an option.
Anyway, the fact that you can't be sure if your favorites will survive is part of the appeal for me.
It's not that weird. Their military revolves around being a gymnast. Every character should be extremely ripped.
>Anyway, the fact that you can't be sure if your favorites will survive is part of the appeal for me.
It's like GRRM all over again.
Don't blame the anime for Jean being a shit.
So we can all agree that Bert/Annie is canon?
That's kind of adorable.
Aw shit, at least the QUALITY bridge is gone.
Annie have a 10/10 in combat so It's highly likely.
She did put Eren and Reiner on their asses back to back.
>and in Mikasa's case, a violent protective streak over their loved ones
That too, but she still stays really feminine in some cases, like on chapter 50.
That's why I really like her both as a character and look wise.
That applies to Annie too, she might appear tough, but she's gorgeous and pretty cute at times.
I hate Mikasa. I hate her obsession over Eren. I hate her bland personality. I hate everything about her.
>believing anything /a/ says
How could you believe that a monthly series could be like that?
I know you're baiting, but still.
Try Berserk, it's great.
Have you forgiven Annie for her sins yet /a/?
>"A-anon, please just listen! I didn't really want to kill your friends and family. I was just following orders! Won't you ever forgive me?"
I don't know, months are short.
Yeah, how dare they embellish scenes in a story adapted from a medium that specializes in taking as many narrative shortcuts as possible.
> but she's gorgeous and pretty cute at times.
I know that IMO, Annie have the cutest smile.
I don't know why I'm laughing so hard at that pic.
I have already forgiven my goddess.
I know, but it just took me by surprise. I mean, Eren always looked to me like this weak, whiny and impulsive little kid, and seeing him with a fucking 8-pack was a bit of a surprise to me.
I guess he really is growing up.
>when compared with Annie
I know you're baiting anon, but just remember that Isa doesn't gives a fuck about characters, they're just puppets for him to tell the story with. He admitted it himself, that this manga is not about the characters themselves.
People who haven't forgiven BRA already are cruel faggots.
Anyone else want Mikasa and Historia to brutally and unexpectedly die? They're both so off-puttingly Mary Sue along with their muh oh so tragic backstory.
>Have you forgiven Annie for her sins yet /a/?
But of course.
The manga's kindergarten art doesn't really help.
Bait: the post.
I want Mikasa and Historia to brutally Make sweet love to each other to the point it would shock the audience.
That being said, keep in mind that most of the characters in this story have muh oh so tragic backstory, with the exception of Jean and Sasha.
>The manga's kindergarten art
As must as I'm starting to like the series, the manga's art reminds me of my little cousin's drawings.
Could always be worse.
Anniefags you have 10 seconds to justify the moral argument for why you support a genocidal, psychotic war criminal
Even IF Eren had a mental lapse and forgave her, Levi would never do it.
Thankfully, Eren got over her and has shown no signs of ever forgiving BRA, so that's good.
I just like Annie.
Who is best girl in this show and why is it Sasha?
All Annie needs is some dick to make her happy and not so genocidal.
You guys remember this?
It could be worse, and he's certainly improved over time, but it would both look better and be more coherent with a more skilled person handling the art.
Not an Anniefag, but it's just a manga, and she is not genocidal or psychotic. She was just following orders, and she was 11 when she did it, it's not like she realized what she was doing.
>Sasha will never give you a lecture of food and why it's so important to not waste them.
Are you implying they haven't made sweet love yet?
SnK without Isayama's art wouldn't be SnK. Just look at the spin off. It's the part of SnK's wild ride.
I like Isayama's art.
>armin is canon trap
Looks like a rough draft you would see in a Disney extra content video.
As long as he's improving. I'm just glad that there's not a lot of sameface.
You are devoid of morals then, you villainous scum!
It's not as much about their backstories as it is about how they're shoved into the viewers' faces in a "like and feel sorry for this character, NOW, do it" way, what with Mikasa's deus ex machina-ing invincibleness and Historia's kawaii uguness.
The one and only thing which I like about Eren is that despite everything, he's not going the usual forgiving moralfag way about everything like your typical shonen.
He doesn't gives a fuck about BR's reasons and still said he will fucking kill them with that cute look in his eyes when he sees his eternal love: rage.
It does make me wonder how it got approved to begin with. There's a certain camp value to it, but the Japanese are pretty bad at detecting that sort of thing.
He's inconsistent. It works well for his monsters.
Sasha is best girl.
The anatomy of the characters might be off at times, but the art is making the series what it is, and it's adding a lot to the horror factor.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about Eren, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Cadet Corps, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret attacks on Titans, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in 3DMG and I’m the top fighter in the entire military. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on either side of the Walls, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across Wall Maria and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the Scouting Legion and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
>It does make me wonder how it got approved to begin with
Japan doesn't care if the art is good or not.
Nobody has that kind of view of Eren, not even Eren himself. You're making this too obvious. Just go to sleep, Mikasa.
But it felt more as if their backstories explains why they act the way they do. Mikasa is overprotective over the last family she has left, and Historia grew up with the idea that nobody wanted her to be alive, so when she had the chance to start over with her life she immediately made it so so that people would think that she really was needed and that her life really was worth it.
Nigga she's tried to subtlety kill herself like 1000 times and is clearly batshit insane and useless without Ymir. Not to mention she's not exactly strong or even remotely smart at all.
Mikasa is border-line sue but I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt because I'm pretty sure she's not completely human.
>implying Jean and Armin won't be the only survivors
>I was just following orders
Not a legitimate defence in a court of law. Annie is old enough to be responsible for her actions, especially her murder of dozens of people during the Recon Corps' latest expedition outside the walls and when she resisted arrest and attempted escape.
They care a little.
I think most of the characters' positive attributes are shoved into the viewers' faces. I mean, it's pretty fucking obvious that Isayama just lacks the knowledge and experience of how to make the audience like his characters as this IS his first manga. He's trying to make us sympathise with pretty much every character, from Historia to Erwin, but sometimes he just doesn't know how to be subtle about it, especially in Historia's case and also in Mikasa's case to a certain extent.
I will try to keep an eye on his future manga and see if he gets better at it, but so far, you can't really blame the characters for the amateur storytelling, that's all Isa.
And that means that people shouldn't like her?
Historia =/= Mary Sue
Christa = Mary Sue
Speaking of titans, who's your favorite titan?
Bert and Utgard titan.
My favorite titan is the one who was relaxing on his back in the giant trees forest.
>mfw the anal devastation of fangirls when Levi is kill
>mfw the rectum ravaging of waifufags when Annie is kill
>Mikasa in the middle
I'd go for the Moe Titan. She's just too cute.
You guys are fucking stupid the actual huge problem here is the ear.
Of course it does. Any rational, well adjusted decent individual does not like an evil murderer.
Less Levi would be good. That character type is the worst.
That titan on the bottom left next to Connie's mom. He's pretty cute.
You could like the person behind the mass-murderer.
The Just Fuck Already titan.
Oh really? Why don't you pay /pol/ a visit and then come back and say that in our face again.
I like the titan who ate Ilse, he a cute.
Are we still talking about mangos?
Also, we're on /a/, let's not pretend we're rational, well adjusted decent individuals.
>not a midget Titan
Holy shit what are you guys even watching?
Everything is a titan, she's a titan.
Even the goddam fucking walls are titans.
It's hard to pick, but aside from Monkey Trouble my favourites are Nosey and "HEY MOOOOOOOOM!"
MT's first appearance was amazing though, probably the biggest "SHIT JUST GOT REAL" moment of the series.
Mikasa's vagina is a titan
I like this qt.
Scared as shit Titan on the bottom left
Also Eren and Reiner
I will remove you
She's not a titan, but she was definitely injected with something as a child by Grisha which made her into something of a super-soldier, even as a kid.
Annie's anus is a titan
Erwinfags confirmed for the worst scum on earth.
As if all their homolust wasn't enough.
I want my dick to be devoured by this titan.
>less 3dmg in the future
Why would you want it? It's already shitty how most fights are titan vs titan
I never read the manga and have been slow in watching the Anime.
I take it Eren and Mikasa aren't a thing, he seems oblivious + just not give a fuck and she seems unwilling
Anniefags are also /pol/aks
It all makes sense now
Holy fuck, I also hate it when a show about titans has titans in it!
Levi is gateway fujobait of the worst kind.
Isayama only gets one chapter a month, he's not going to waste time on unnecessary romance
There was a big speech and bravadon plus she tried to kiss him, but nothing's happened since. It's the most shonen thing I've seen in SnK.
There was a big speech and bravado, plus she tried to kiss him. Nothing's happened since though. It's the most shonen thing I've seen in SnK. Everyone's relationships are progressing except for theirs.
>Mikasa seems unwilling
Sure, Mikasa is about as unwilling about getting Eren's D as a thirsty human in the desert who hasn't drank any liquids for 3 days would be about getting some water.
She wouldn't hesitate killing anyone standing in her way for it.
SnK without Levi is a better SnK.
But he doesn't even like tea...
>Everyone's relationships are progressing except for theirs.
Well, duuh, they are the main pairing. Their time will come right before the end. That's why I usually enjoy the side pairings more.
Are Armin and Jean also titans?
It's funny cause Levi isn't really fujobait. I mean, characters like Jean or Armin have far more fanservice yet fujos jumped on manlet
Friendly reminder that it was Levi who scared Annie in the Forest of the Giant Trees by threatening her with torture that made her panic, call on other titans, and thus escape.
Levi is the one to blame for his whole squad dying, Eren getting kidnapped by Annie, his own injury and all the destruction and death in Stohess, which would have never been necessary, had he stayed silent once they got their hands on Annie the first time around..
I envision Mikasa stooping to obvious hints drop of her wanting Eren's D and he just not getting it.
Please never do that again.
And Jean is incredibly popular among fujos too.
>Everyone's relationships are progressing except for theirs.
Because he's blatantly not interested in her like that.
I will say whatever I want fagget.
Poor Mikasa. It must be suffering to love someone who can only get rageboners.
Dude you are too obvious
Because he's overpowered gloomy black hair. No fujo can resist.
Jean is popular with a wider variety of people, but Levi gets most of the art.
Eren can't even get hard.
Maybe she just shout to the heavens that she hate titans and wants to kill them all.
Eren should propose to her right there right?
But he can't even get rageboners, as we found out in the latest chapter.
Not bait, I just genuinely blame Levi for everything.
No, he would only propose to her if she became Rage herself.
What are the chances that Eren and Mikasa will end up happening?
As likely as Bert/Annie being canon.
Slim to none honestly
>you were writing "I don't know how to get hard"
It's still funny.
Eren and the titan relaxing in the forest of giant trees
So Mikasa should just wake up yelling at everyone, being aggressive as fuck towards her peers and fight them, and just never stop wearing an angry expression?
Well he's also manlet and awkward as fuck, but that's probably made him only more popular. I kinda wish fujos would focus on someone else. It's painful when your favorite character is so grossly misinterpreted and manga about him is so awful
Why is Annie so perfect?
More like the abstract personification of pure, unrelenting anger.
I bet he sniffs his underwear when no one is around.
Jean is gaybait.
Remove Ravioli from SnK oh great lord Isayama.
But Mikasa can't give a fuck about anything or anyone except Eren himself.
It's just a love that was never meant to be. It's like they are from different worlds, him from the Land of the Ragelovers, her from the Kingdom of Eren is God.
If they both live, it's the odds are 40-60.
/a/ says it will happen/they want it to happen.
I feel sorry for their child that have to grow up with 2 angry parents always yelling not AT them, but just towards them.
Erwin is pretty yaoi to me. He has that stupid hair and perpetually crazed look about him that fujos go for. Only Jean and Reiner made the cut.
>implying Mikasa would be that kind of mother
And anyway, it was already agreed that the best child in this series would be Mikasa's and Bert's kid.
A child with ridiculous levels social anxiety/autism.
Which pairing do you want to become canon the most?
So shouldn't Misaka kill Titans in Eren's name then while mad as fuck?
That doesn't make any sense. The (living) person Eren seems to care about most is Armin, who is basically the complete opposite of the embodiment of rage.
Eren x Armin
I bet he explained to her how babies are made in both theory and practice while she was still a loli, if you know what I mean.
This. So much this. Muh dick.
Erwin/Levi yep it's my guilty pleasure
I know she wouldn't be like that for real, I was just using my previous posts as a base for that one.
Why Mikasa and not Annie? Not rooting for the other, but don't Annie have social anxiety?
Daily reminder that while he sacrificed himself for Armin, his coordinate powers were never triggered by Armin.
How is Jean not "pretty yaoi"? Erwin's manlier than him in every conceivable way.
Eren/Mikasa and Bert/Reiner.
I'm not even fucking kidding, and I'm sure I'm not a homo.
Seconding this one so much >>100556075
That's a leading question. Your research is therefore invalid as it has a psychological effect on your participants.
Out of curiosity, which place did Reiner land on?
I kinda like idea of Bert and Reiner.
Anything Yuri, preferably Ymir and Christa
That's already canon
Fuck you cunt, Bert doesn't deserve Reiner.
So we can all agree that Erwin/Annie is canon?
I know, I just wanted to post the OTP.
Annie just avoids social interactions. However, Mikasa just plainly fails at it and at communication in general.
7th, but I bet it would be higher if it was second season.
>his coordinate powers were never triggered by Armin.
They weren't? Basically the whole time Mikasa was talking to him Eren was looking over at Armin.
My nigga. At first I thought they really liked each other.
Though you have to admit, that was pretty gay.
Not really, he was just looking around at the death scenery, and so did Mikasa. He also looked at Erwin.
Actually, nevermind, Eren/Erwin OTP.
Levi/Hanji is my delusional ship that I want to become canon but it won't
Add Ymir/Historia in there and I'm sold.
No, I just liked the chemistry between them, mostly because they care about each other while they can't stand each other.
I just like the idea, I don't search for any porn of them or anything, that would be gay.
I also like them both as characters individually though, so that might be the reason.
>Actually, nevermind, Eren/Erwin OTP.
We need pics of this
I would be ok with this.
I see now.
Thanks for that.
Who can pair up with Eren and make the angriest child?
Wait, was it a Japanese poll? Because that would be kinda odd. Aren't they more or less exclusively attracted to feminine features in a guy? Reiner embodies pretty much the opposite of that. And the fact that the poll covered several different series whilst Reiner hadn't even had much screentime in his one at the time makes it even weirder that he'd manage to end up on 7th place.
>crying and pleading
Nah, not her style.
You forget that even if she was following orders and felt guilty, she's still got a crazy coldness to her. Armin basically had to convince her that friends meant anything, and even then she didn't say much.
Annie wouldn't give that many shits about forgiveness.
I assume it's because Erwin has a serious case of cliche seme. Jean is basically a twink, so he works for everyone. This is probably why he's also the fandom bicycle.
Gay men in Japan are mostly like Reiner.
It was a poll of Japanese men. When it came out people here were pleasantly surprised at how reasonable their tastes were in comparison to how the polls of women usually turn out.
Here's some English for you http://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2013/08/30-1/male-otaku-names-the-anime-heroes-they-would-like-to-have-as-a-boyfriend
Most homos prefer their men to actually look like men, why do you think most bara artists are made by men for men while most yaoi is made by women for women?
Yeah me too. I don't really see them as romantic couple but they are my favorite duo
I'm thinking Bert again. He is slow and sweaty, but once you push the right buttons like Armin did, he really went Eren-level rage.
Keith Shadis is also a good choice.
So yeah, Mikasa/Bert for most socially awkward child and Eren/Bert for most rageful child.
This thread slowly dissolved into shipping.
Yeah, I'm just gonna keep staying (pseudo-)delusional about it until it's been properly disconfirmed.
And Bert for having the worst traits to have for a parent to give to his child.
Good thing he'll never have one, as he'll die in a horrible way before he gets as much as a kiss.
Oh, missed the part about it being a gay poll. It all suddenly makes a lot of sense now.
>until it's been properly disconfirmed.
It's alread ybeen disconfirmed countless of times already.
Is there a dub for this show?
Is it worth it?
When doesn't it?
I just want Reiner to be taken in threesome relationship with Ymir and Christa and be bossed around and dominated by both of them.
Daily reminder that when faced with Titan Ymir, Bert deserted his friends like the bitch he is, while Berrik sacrificed himself to save Reiner.
Just read the manga, it's better and there's no censoring.
It's already been disconfirmed, sadly.
It would be a serious gay couple for once, which is really rare in manga and anime, unless it's on a yaoi story.
Even if it was one sided from Reiner's side, it would still be fine for me, but it's very unlikely.
Didn't we already establish that Bert is best shingeki dad yesterday?
I'm sorry but I just had to fix Berts nose in this.
Yesterday we sort of agreed he would make a retardedly cute child with Mikasa because the kid would be socially autistic, but if we're talking serious here, he really has the second most horrible traits to pass along, first being Eren.
He is best shingeki in general.
He was 12 years old, I'm not going to blame a child for running away in fear while seeing his friend get devoured by a monster. It's the only logical thing to do.
Only Eren would be retarded enough to go and fight the titan with his bare hands.
It was Ymir though
Then which two would make the best child?
>1.92m with perfect build
>worse than a manlet
His only bad trait is his nose, and plastic surgeons are doing wonders.
>I'm not going to blame a child for running away in fear while seeing his friend get devoured by a monster.
I would if I were you.
Armin and Ymir. Or Armin and Mikasa.
Intelligence, shrewdness, devotion, loyalty and cuteness.
Bert, Historia or Mikasa.
Why is his nose a bad trait? It's part of his charm.
I was referring to personality traits, anon.
Social anxiety, rage/losing control easily, lack of courage and so on.
Ymir would be rebellious, and it's annoying as fuck having a rebellious child.
Parents want cute quiet children like Christa or Bert, or clever children like Armin, who will grow up to be scientists.
Reiner and Mikasa
SONIC DICE: ¿CÓMO PODÉIS IR RÁPIDO ESTANDO BORRACHOS?
Historia and Mikasa. Perfect loli result.
Also seconding Armin and Mikasa, brains and muscles.
what's the best crack pairing?
These don't get passed on through childbirth though.
I was objectively speaking, I personally like his nose.
It's part of his charm as you said, just like Annie's.
What about Armin and Annie or Sasha?
Porque hay gente tan estupida que no sabe lo que hace?
It was a good pairing until I found out what a spineless cunt Bert is. Now I am really glad Isayama sunk that ship.
Armin/Annie or Annie/Eren
>that title narration
>that whole thing
Armin x Mikasa
Reiner x Mikasa
Annie would be okay, but her physical traits are not impressive when compared to Mikasa's, and Sasha... well, she is loyal but other than her appetite, I don't see what she could pass on to her kids. A hungry smart kid is not as impressive as a kickass smart kid.
Ymir and Historia best parents, cutest child.
Holy fuck, I just noticed Nick on 1.20.
No, Ymir would make a bad kid, annoying as fuck.
Reiner and Historia, on the other hand.
Who does Annie love?
The man who she was thinking about while crying and locking herself in her crystal.
Por favor, vete.
>Reiner and Historia, on the other hand.
The question is, Who WOULD Annie love?
LA LEY DE UEKI
El doblador de Kosuke es un dios
Me molesta más el hecho de que se hayan pasado por los cataplines todo el diálogo de "tu pelo se ha vuelto más largo", pero bueno, ya me bajaré el último episodio o lo compraré dentro de unos años para ver como intentan solucionar que se hayan comido el punto más importante de toda la trama
Nobody, but it'd be nice if she loved Bert.
Flan, por favor
Pais de hablahispana, porfavor.
Why am I laughing so much at their faces?
Armin es una mierda.
Friendly reminder that as girls ride horses, their hymen wears thinner.
>yfw your waifu's hymen is gone before you can take it
Nah, they're too much on the opposite spectrum of female and male attractiveness. The child would turn out too manly-looking if it were a girl and would probably suffer from a major case of gayface if it turned out to be a guy.
This is why most conventionally good-looking people tend to have more average-looking parents, or at least one parent who is. Both parents have more feminine traits = daughter wins genetic lottery, and vice versa.
Do women also lose their virginity then?
This is the deformed face of two people who don't even know why the fuck they have been paired together.
Ymir and Eren would have a handsome kid.
How long can you keep watching this?
Remove /spic/ from premises pls.
Yes, but not for the same reason.
I can't even press play just by looking at the picture. That Eren looks like a nightmare and a half.
Unfortunately, they do.
>tfw when every girl in the series is no longer intact
I managed to watch 17 seconds, I need a prize.
But your hymen don't go, even after losing your virginity. Learn to anatomy.
>Nah, they're too much on the opposite spectrum of female and male attractiveness.
but that would make the perfect child
No, it just stretches into oblivion to the point a man won't have access to it anymore.
>El titan acorazado
Me estoy riendo mas de lo que deberia, suana tan patetico.
Actually, doesn't look half bad.
That fucking Levi.
>Mi corte no ha sido profundo
Why would you want to have access to it? It's just a membrane, not the holy grail.
Also you will never fuck your waifu
/a/, I finally realized how much I like Guren no Yumiya.
I've listened to it countless times during the anime, and even though I liked it, I never appreciated it.
It is truly great.
>tiene que responder con el error
Como se siente ser tan autista?
Mikasa un pedazo de mierda.
>mikasa no la mejor
Esta Sasha, pero las dos estan bien buenas.
Se siente genial.
I think they could pretty a really attractive son, since guys with a slightly feminine touch to them can turn out sexy as fuck. However, if they had a daughter... eh, I think Reiner's manly manliness genes would be a bit too dominant here. Something along the lines of Angelina Jolie at best, if the universe decided that it really wanted to be on their side.
La mejor es obviamente la más lesbiana de todas.
*produce, not pretty
Pero Sasha es mejor.
Sasha está bien buena eso si.
Spanish is funny, I can understand almost everything without even speaking it.
>Implying Reiner and Historia will ever have a child.
>if they do ever have one the kid will be born with dark hair and freckles
>Turns out Ymir's the dad
Its really beautiful that no matter where you're from in Europe, you will always understand when one guys calls sombodyan autist
This need to be drawn.
Please, Central America is best.
I think Reiner and Historia's daughter would look like Annie.
Thank you for making me skip to 00:26.
If we're being unorthodox, Ymir and Annie still are.Except we all know she slutted up Hitch-tier in her month of MP duty.
Agh, damnit anon, you beat me to it
I was trying to remember which episode that was
>Estar aún orgulloso del lugar de nacimiento
Escoge una, y sólo una
Did the link break for anyone else?
They probably all did all kind of exercises on-horse, considering horseriding is the main mode of transportation, so it's key to know how to fight titans while riding and so on.
And Ymir was also in the FT Arc when they went to the forest, so she also rode a horse there.
If you want nationalism, go fucking /pol/ and stay /pol/.
Well, at least this isn't the worst case of hivemind I've had here.
No estar orgulloso del lugar de nacimiento.
Learn to read, marica. I just said that is something not worthy to be proud of
Oh god, my sides have left this universe.
Shhhh, no tears.
what kind of language is this...
What I meant is, if you want to talk about /pol/, go /pol/, don't start shit up here.
It reminds me of the language you see on canned fish in the foreign food section of grocery stores.
Thread is dead anyway
Looks Finish or Swedish or another nordic language.
No, but I wish it did.
Bert is een stuk stinkende stront.
This is going to give me nightmares.
Google translate says it's swedish.
I don't know what the fuck you said but you take that back you faggot.
>Eren defending Bert
Bad choice of reation image. Eren would agree with him.
Hey, the cinematography in this isn't too bad. But the people in it makes the whole thing look pretty cringingly autistic.
We need a new thread.
Mikasa directed the whole thing.
Norfag here, its Swedish. It saysgardenerfag pls
I don't like avatarfagging, I just wanted the reaction.
Unless you have a big topic to talk about that is important and relevant to the series that we've never talk before/you want to approach it from a different perspective, then no, we don't need a new thread.
Petra est une salope. Une salope morte.
But we always need a shingeki thread.
Toi mon coquin tu vas aller te coucher vite fait bien fait.
You take that back pédé
Don't make a thread just for the sake of it without a good topic for discussion.
It will just make us look even more like fags to the rest of /a/.
So when MT comes back, what do you think are the odds of Connie rushing in against him and being used as a guinea pig to show us how he turns people into titans?
I don't know the odds, but I definitely want to see that.
Pls not Connie.
>Toi mon coquin tu vas aller te coucher vite fait bien fait.
>You my naughty you'll go to bed quickly done well.
Translators have failed me
For those of you who argued that Geographia is the coordinate of the Reiss family who built Wall Maria, I had a look at the 3 'Goddesses' closer, and I don't think so.
Maria seems to have had a fringe, so I think that's unlikely.
I think that if this girl is indeed one of the coordinates who built the wall, then she's most likely to be Rose, or Shina to a lesser extent, at least judging by their emblems.
What if Girsha injected Mikasa with super serum, which gave her super strength and coordination, so that she could protect Eren? Her head hurts when shes figthing titans and Eren is not there, so she has an additional reason to be close to him.
Yeah, I was also thinking she was the goddess of Wall Rose.
I also thought that was likely, but then I had a closer look, and Grisha mentioned to Mikasa 'I think you remember me, I used to visit you often when you were younger' or something like that.
So if he wanted her to protect Eren, why wait for her so many years before he introduced her to Eren?
Also, Mikasa lived somewhere in the countryside in the mountains which were scarcely populated, while Eren lived in the busy city of Shiganshina. Why would Grisha choose someone so far away to protect Eren, when he could have chosen someone closer to Eren?
I can't believe they kept this.
There, a basis for some discussion. Let's go.
Perhaps he discovered she was born with these abillities /had the potential to get them? Maybe it has something to do with her being the last Asian child
Seriously, there are two decent topic for discussions above, yet you start a new thread with something which only encourages shitposting.
You're the cancer, rejoyce.
Maybe if he saw Mikasa repeatedly while she was a child, there's the possibility she was sick often/had some kind of disease?
And he tried a different serum that helped body's natural ability to regenerate in order to save her, and these powers are a side effect to that serum?
This, the new thread went to shit already.
Well, try to steer it in another direction then instead of complaining. Not that hard, m8.
Just remind you, Mikasa also had a headache right after Carla died when Wall Maria was breached(see >>100554485 ), and she was with Eren at that time. So either being near Eren or not, she still gets those headaches.
