Why do we dislike Attack on Titan again ?
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.
Because it's shit
It is irritating to talk about it after it got popular, but I still like it.
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.
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
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.
Brings in an unwanted community.
>i despise animays but i watched attack on the titans on netflix and its epic :) please recommend more like it
>We all dislike AoT, right, /a/? Do I fit in yet?
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!"
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.
Because of people like you who call it Attack on Titan instead of SnK.
The mainstream audience is just fucking shit, this thread has no point anymore.
Squid invasion Thread.
>HEY GUYS LOOK AT MY OTP
But it's like that even in non-SnK thread. And when it's not about OTPs it's about waifus.
BECAUSE IT'S SO POPULAR!!11!
IF ONLY IT WAS AN OBSCURE I WOULD LIKE IT!!
THE FANBASE IS SHIT AND THAT MEANS THE ANIME IS SHIT, EVEN THOUGHT I KNOW IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE!!
Did you watch DUWANG squidisodes?
because Jean is not the main character.
All these are acceptable answers
>/a/ hates it because it's popular
Then why does /a/ like so much other popular anime series?
>HEY GUYS LOOK AT MY OTP XDDDD
Literally every thread on /a/ have some waifu stuff so same thing.
/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.
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.
Good stuff, one of the best fansubbing.
The Walking Dead: Giants Edition!
I would have called it Retaliation of Mankind or something hip like that.
But what if they're actually on Titan?
Or the Titan Onslaught.
Because popularity has nothing to do with it.
Also, for the whole thread, /a/ doesn't have a unifying opinion on any show. This is also a troll thread that OP keeps reposting.
Because some like to feel like a special snowflake for watch something that others didn't.
Because hipster fucking faggots are mad jelly and butthurt that its popular. BAAAWWWW I don't like this anime in a ᴘᴏsᴛ-ᴀᴘᴏᴄᴀʟʏᴘᴛɪᴄ sᴇᴛᴛɪɴɢ im gonna go cry about it on /a/ because I don't like Thing.
The anime wasn't that good
People brand new to anime touted it as some revolutionary new thing, some "moeshit" trolls abounded, lots of other trolls due to the massive popularity explosion
Manga got a bit worse
Shit character development
But, that's just my opinion.
Dilma pls go
A title like that would suit the opening a lot more
How can you have a song like that and not have any "Humanity fuck yeah" moments
>discussion of the show being bad means the show itself is bad
What? If I wanna talk about a show, but everyone else just says ____ x ____ OTP 4 LYFE, that makes the fanbase shit. Not the show.
please don't post something as wonderful as her in this terrible thread
Blah, blah Eotena Onslaught is a gateway anime of the worst kind, blah, blah.
Fanbase is tumblr-tier babby's first cartoon shit.
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.
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.
The soundtrack is literally the only reedemable factor in Shingeki and some of the scenes where WIT puts their budget into are alright. The first 10 episodes were good but it goes downhill after Trost.
>Because of people like you who call it Attack on Titan instead of SnK.
I'm sorry, what?
>Because of people like you who call it Attack on Titan instead of SnK.
You could just call it by it's proper name instead.
Did commie keep the Eoten thing until the last episode?
It's shit, if you can't see that then I don't really give a fuck.
I hate it when people call Hagane no Renkijutsushi "FMA".
Because its off season.
The people who like it can't be bothered to post about liking it, so the only people who go on and on and on and on are the incredibly dull people who have nothing to better to do than hate on things.
I fucking love AOT, but the constant need to "shock" you is fucking stupid and ends up in silly situations.
>first episode, a guy brings a mother her son's arm
I swear i almost stopped watching there
Because SNK a shit
I don't hate things for stupid reasons like "fan-base""over-hyped' "popular".
Please tell me a popular anime that isn't hated by /a/
>mfw choleric and agressive, watching SnK, especially ep 21, 24 and 25
Eh, "Here's as much as we could recover so you have something to bury." is a thing that happens in armed conflict. That scene was stupid because he handed it to her in the middle of the fucking street in front of a crowd.
You still don't get it do you?
whatsup weeaboo faggot
I like it /a/ isn't one giant hipster-hybrid
/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
>/a/ didn't like the manga before the anime aired, threads were mostly Frodos discussing the many plotholes and poor art
Too obvious, try harder.
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
I'm sure you're probably not like this but most of /a/ is
Except it's not zombie flick like some retards wanted.
> and hating shows because they're popular
But again, /a/ likes plenty of other popular anime.
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.
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.
It's bretty gud
Really, that's what I'm also seeing.
There are some people who genuinely dislike it, but even here on /a/, the majority is ok with it.
>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
>shows far more popular than Attack on Titan ever will be, like Madoka or the monogatari series
I don't think you understand how popular it is right now.
This. I'm seeing way too many fans here, so trying to push the "we hate it" maymay is just retarded.
We like it. Not everyone, but /a/ is not a hivemind either.
I do, you obviously don't.
You clearly don't. Stop trying to reassure yourself.
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.
My answer, already posted. Thanks Anon.
You bring solid reasons to the table, I respect you Anon.
What reassurance, I'm not hating, its popular, just not crazy popular, unless you only look at Western fans, which I unfortunately see frequently.
I like it.
It also apparently has quite a big fanbase even here, so I don't see any point in the "we".
>just not crazy popular
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.
Stop implying we hate it, since we don't.
Samefag here, I obviously wasn't referring to >>100737467, but at the people saying that we dislike it.
is this the ika musume thread?
A good post in a SnK thread. Impressive anon.
>we dislike Attack on Titan
10/10, I'm mad.
If I learned anything after the anime got announced, it's that /a/ is obsessed with it.
Most people love it, and some people hate it with a huge passion.
Did I miss something or did they never explain why Annie decided to go super saiyan?
What if you were the Colossal Titan body suit.
Mysteries all over the place
>no cute girls
>Most people love it,
10/10, I'm mad.
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.
Take it easy anon-kun.
Calm down, it's okay.
And you apparently fall to the second category I mentioned.
There's no need to get offensive here.
wᴀᴛ fᴏɴᴛ ɪs ᴛhɪs m8?
It's not as good as everyone says/thinks it is, therefore /a/ has to hate it to compensate.
I am okay with this system.
Also, the pacing was pretty awful, the animation had its rough moments and the ending was shit.
Everything feels like a complete asspull, and the characters are all pretty flat
plot twist: they are on a ginormous titan
>the characters are all pretty flat
Mikasa is a deep character.
