Well, one more chapter to finish the mini-series
>>
showdown of the giants*

*totally not titans
>>
>>100678872
That really looks like a fucking Shingeki, jesus christ

Isn't this guy's art recognized as something greater than just another mangake? And he goes ahead and does this obvious ripoff?

Titanfags....

Giants is big humans.

These particular titans look just like the Kyojin
>>
>>100679596
But it is, you fucking retard.

Second best selling manga in Japan last year. Best selling manga outside of Japan last year.
>>
Holy shit miura, exploiting the fucking queen of elves to make a SnK ripoff?
I'm fucking speechless

>>
>>100679480

>Attack on Titan is currently the biggest manga on the planet

Since when?

Although it does look like Miura borrowed a few ideas.
>>
>>100679616
no, she gattaid with him and then he transformed

first panel needs a little more work, second one a little more steam
>>
>>100679640
Gee, it's as if he's trying to show off how good the Kyojin manga would look if he made it. Could this be an attempt to draw in more fans to his manga?

How many people read Berserk?

>>100678969
It's called Gigantomakhia for a reason, not Titanomakhia. Mihura's manga has to do with Greek Mythology, SnK doesn't and just takes the term titan without it having any connection with its original meaning. So fuck you SnK fagots.
>>
>>100680147
No, it invented the merging of those elements

I think he's suggesting that it's ridiculous to compare total sales when one series has a decade's-long head start.

Besides, he said it is CURRENTLY the top-selling manga in the world. Which is true.

Judging by the name and the references, Gigantomackia is based on the greek Titanomahia, which makes the comparison more obvious.

I'm not saying that Miura stole anything From SnK, but it might have helped him with choosing a setting for his story.

That being said, I don't have anything against any series, it's just an observation.
Getting ideas for your story from other stories is perfectly fine and normal.

"Gigantomakhia" is based on the greek mythology with "Titanomakhia".
I'm sorry to break it for you, but that's the official greek name.

If it has to do with greek mythology as you're implying with such a passion, then there are "titans" involved. (τιτάνες in greek)
>>
>>100683377
>>100682963
So Snk invent the term Titan?
>>
>>100683546
The greek mythology first used the term "titan" as far as I know, and Gigantomakhia is based on the greek titan war with a similar name.

SnK also has giants which are called titans, but is based on the norse mythology more than the greek.

Also, what the fuck is wrong with the reading comprehension in this thread? Everyone is misunderstanding what people say just to call them titanfags.
Grow up a little, will you, we're just having a discussion. Even if Miura borrowed some ideas from SnK, that doesn't make it bad, stop getting offended over everything.

I'm not agreeing or disagreeing with the guy, since I'm too bored to make a sum of all the dates, but if someone cares, he can go and do it.
It seems that SnK is generally higher than OP though, just from a quick glance.

>I FUCKING SAID I HAVEN'T READ IT
Actually, from reading the thread, half the people that were called titanfags were not such.

You people have to calm down a little, no one is insulting Miura, he's really talented, but it's just a suspicious coincidence that he made a giant manga just after a giant manga became a hit.

Insulting each other because you don't like a manga is as childish as it can get.

Yeah, still here.
Holy fuck, I just noticed the text in the cover, thanks for pointing it out.
Not just the "stadio gaga" part, but everything about it.

Out of curiosity, what's the joke?
>>
>>100688149
They tried to make Miura's name into a greek name, and they're trying to write in ancient greek
>Provided by Miura Kentarow + Gaga Stadium

Even explaining it won't help much, the basic joke is the use of the word stadium instead of studio.
The name also looks funny.

Do you mean Eoten?

>>100683733
I thought it was more based on that Goya painting, which is about a specific scene in Greek mythology involving a titan

fuck off

>Gee, it's as if he's trying to show off how good the Kyojin manga would look if he made it.
But Miura's right, he's a better writer AND artist

>>100690568
You mean SnK?
It definitely looks like it, the painting depicts Cronos (Saturn) who ate his son because he was afraid that he would take his place.

Isayama might have drawn some inspiration from the painting, but the setting and the themes in the story are more based on the norse mythology, rather than the greek.

SnK even has characters named after norse giants, and the main character is probably based on Surtr, the flame giant that destroys the earth in the end.

>>100690823
No need to get butthurt, and I didn't even mention the mythology there (since I don't know the details anyway). I was mostly talking about the greek words that are randomly put into the story.
But it's funny seeing you getting mad over nothing.

>>100690925
I can't say about the writing part, they are mostly on par in my opinion.

Miura's art is definitely superior, but I also like the creepy vibe SnK has in the monster designs. I agree in general though.
