Why do we dislike Attack on Titan again ?
>>
It's popular.
>>
If the answer to that question isn't obvious, please don't include yourself in the "we."
>>
Cause it's popular
>>
because its popular.
no, seriously, you guys might think its a hipster thing to dislike popular stuff but the bigger the fanbase is the worse
>>
I like it.
>>
It has a good premise, and the actions scenes are well animated, but the plot is fucking retarded.
It only gets worse with time
>>
Also it was obviously trying to be edgy. And they switched the ED to the crappy j-pop thing.
>>
>we
>>
Because it's shit
>>

It is irritating to talk about it after it got popular, but I still like it.
>>
>>100733594
The fanbase doesn't reflect on the quality of the show itself though. A show can be shit if 100 or 1000000000 people like it.
>>
>>100733491
Because it became popular.
The problem is almost nobody complained about SnK when it didn't have an anime adaptation.
>>
Because it brought people like you here.
>>
Because /a/ hates popular aminu
>>
>>100733700
yes it does, you cannot discuss the manga because retarded tumblrfags will come over and go HEY GUYS LOOK AT MY OTP XDDDD
its also overrated

havent checked it out yet. Should I? I see its on netflix now
>>
Same reason I started hating X files ... after a while you realize it's ass pulls all the way down.

pacing. the story was alright when it was just about humans trying to survive, got dumb when humans were titans, dumber when it became a Tom cruise movie(aka everyone it's just running around), and I dropped it when they all start kidnapping people because it was no fun anymore. I kinda would have been fine with humans were titans if they would have done some kinda spy espionage thing, but no they just reveal everyone real quick and just say, "let the party begin!"
>>
>>100733759
You wouldn't partake in /a/ if "fanbases" dumb down show quality, also that is a retarded reason reflect on what you said.
>>
because we don't want the front page to be full of SnK threads and "i just watched this guise recommend me anime :))"
>>
For most cases /a/ is backwards on everything.
Good is bad and bad is good.
It's because the common mass is braindead only harboring bandwagon opinions because they cannot think for themselves.

/a/ loved the manga.

Then the shitty anime happened. Then the manga started getting worse because he started pandering to casual anime-only fags. Now he said he's scrapped the original ending of the manga because it was too dark for the anime-only fags and would hurt the fujoshi feelings.
>>
>>100733938
Attack on Titan doesn't even sound like a correct title, it sounds more like a story where mankind attack Saturn moon Titan. Should be called Attack on Titans or Attack of Titans
>>
It's more like people are sick of it because the fanbase is cancer.

This might be a dumb question but does the "Kyojin" in Shingeki no Kyojin refer to Eren or the titans attacking mankind? Since it could translate to either "The titan of the attack" or "the attacking titans". And Eren is basically mankind's counter attack against the titans.

Regardless, Attack on Titan is a shit name.

Good thing Commie renamed it to Eotena Onslaught.

>>100734095
No but you don't understand waifu threads are different because reasons

Because it's overrated shallow shonenshit that relies on being DARK N EDGY to cover up its shitty story and artwork while pandering to casuals as babby's first seinen manga.

The Titan refers to the Saturn moon.

/a/ didn't like the manga before the anime aired, threads were mostly Frodos discussing the many plotholes and poor art

Then the anime comes along, in Summer of all seasons, and brings in loads of newfags that all hate anime anyway and only come to /a/ to beg moot to bring back Naruto threads, and the studio animating does a great job at improving (not a huge feat) so suddenly Attack on Titan is saving anime and plot holes make it a mystery series

Now school is back in session, anime is back to being 100% moeshit until AoT gets another season, and the rest of /a/ is over-hyping new anime
>>
We don't.

Although you don't get it a majority of you f/a/ggots have the same mindset being pretentious anime weaboos and hating shows because they're popular
Not all of you do but a majority of you are fags "wahhh there's 5 seconds of cgi" "this anime is shit because there's too much killing" "I'm dropping it because this ep has fan service"

It's like people don't call it shit for the story but call it shit for other dumb reasons

But, that's just my opinion.

It ok but it gets overhyped and people try to claim it's one of the best anime of all time. Also a lot of people think it has a lot of strong female characters when the only strong female character I'd probably say it is has Ymir.

The only reason people like Annie is because they feel sorry for her because she was a child soldier, she's generally not a strong person overall and has done some psychotic things and Mikasa is strong physically but her entire personality basically revolves around the male protagonist.
>>
>>100735748
Its actually a pretty small, albeit vocal, minority that's like that. Most of the time its a fucking joke, like the "dropped" threads you see here every day.

>have the same mindset being pretentious anime weaboos and hating shows because they're popular
But there are a lot of hugely popular anime frequently discussed here on /a/, shows far more popular than Attack on Titan ever will be, like Madoka or the monogatari series. There are always threads about the huge franchises as well, like Strike witches, Kancolle, and Nanoha

4 reasons.
1. Pacing.
2. Direction.
3. Wasted world building.
4. Mediocre cast in the most boring way

Almost nothing between the anime's end and the manga's current translations has been anything that isn't a twist that only brings up even more questions.

I feel like I'm waiting for the CS Ball arc in Pokemon again when already established foreshadowing doesn't get any reveal over another. FUCKING. SOURCE OF DRAMA NO ONE GIVES A FUCK ABOUT.

It is crazy popular, inside or outside Japan. Especially in Japan, everybody talks about it, and everything related to it sells like hotcakes.

I just got back from Japan, its all moeshit there, I didn't even see a Colossal Titan body suit, which really disappointed me.

Newfags cry about /a/ hating SnK, but throughout the entire two seasons it was airing we had waifu threads every fucking day about the show.

Maybe you only want /a/ to hate it so that it can be popular without having our board culture all over it.

We still have daily threads maxing out about it all the time.

You do the same shit you're criticizing.
I hope you're referring to the general, ignorant audience.

Seriously, fuck SnK so much. It should've stayed a manga, which would've spared us these daily shitty general threads and its offsprings, both filled to the brim with newfags.
Actually, it should've never been conceived in the first place. Nothing of value would've been lost.
