/a/'s thoughts on Attack on Titan? Friends say it's shit (into nge, guran Lagan, FLCL, kill la kill etc), rest of world disagrees apparently.
>>
>Implying the "rest of the world" isn't completely filled with tasteless retards

You have good friends. It's shit.
>>
it's shit, as I am rest of the world.
>>
>>101345503
It got massively trolled on here, so expect that to come. I've enjoyed the manga, it's not great, but it's decent. As for the anime, it wasn't anything to special to me. Not horrid, nor was it amazing.
>>
>rest of world disagrees
You know how pop music can be popular, but also kind of shitty at the same time?

SnK is alright shounenshit for now. It lost a lot of its promise when the shifting started, and there's an extremely high chance that it'll eventually collapse under its own weight once it comes time to give answers.
>>
>>101345503
Used to be good and then everybody turned into titan.

Also, the manga has been moving with snail pace for a year now, fuck the author.
>>
its AOTY dont let the hipsters on /a/ tell you otherwise (theyre hipsters)
>>
>>101346419
2013 was a really shitty year for anime, wasn't it?
>>
Everything is eotenas.
>>
>>101345503
it's a good show, nge and ttgl are shit (unless you like giant robots fighting like retards), don't listen to your friend
>>
it's got forced seriousness and very bad pacing in comparison to the manga.
It's the most overhyped anime of 2013, but I can't say it's absolute shit even though I really didn't enjoy it.
I still read the manga though.
>>
>>101345503

SnK was a decent 7/10 anime littered with shonen cliches and a semi-interesting backstory. It was decent and normalfag friendly, so it blew up and now everyone (especially /a/) is sick of hearing about it.
>>
>>101347295
I actually love nge as well, i think it's one of the best amines I've watched
>>
>>101347865
i couldn't get past episode 19, it's the same thing every episode.. get in the robot, suffer damage, scream like a girl, destroy the giant monster with your friends, wants to quit nerv, ends up getting back to it. really can't see why people enjoy it, at least the opening is good.

Any given SYD ova would beat snk for aoty

go home retard

>>>/b/


>>101345503
snk is a /b/ anime

just like naruto or bleach

its plebeian shonen garbage that retards can enjoy
>>
>>101347295
Do you really believe that TTGL and NGE are just giant robots fighting for teh lulz?
>>
Not my genre of choice.
>>
>>101348111
fighting for saving earth from the monsters and shit, so yeah
>>
>>101348111
even though i'm not completely sure about nge, as i said, i couldn't get past ep 19.
>>
>>101348088
Ahh okay, I get it. So I'm guessing a shallow as fuck story is to be expected of watched?
>>
>>101348300
Some people process the media they consume on a deeper level compared with someone who doesn't process it at all.
>>
>>101345503
just report and move on. it's IRC invasion time again.
>>
>>101348485
robots fighting omg so deep! they're saving earth from angels!
>>
Out of NGE, TTGL, FLCL, KLK, and SnK, SnK is actually the best.
>>
Nobody has ever lost money believing the majority to be the stupidest morons capable of walking.
>>
snk is the god anime now other anime touches it
>>
>>101349270
That aint the deep part.
>>
>>101349270
yeah, deep in your butt
>>
>>101349353
I'd say that NGE was also good, but I agree for the rest.
None of them was really bad though.
>>
>>101349465
as i said, i didn't watch over 19 episodes, if the deep part is after that, i won't say anything, but saying nge has anything deep until ep. 19 is bullshit, all i saw was robots fighting, prove me wrong
>>
>>101349832
No they're definitely talking about like the last 5 episodes.
>>
Best premise in a popular shonen in a long time, manga has a good amount of gore and the monsters are actually scary/disturbing, lots of mysteries to keep you engaged in the plot, etc.

The anime adaptation has a great OST but everything else is vastly inferior to the manga.

Also, Isayama can't draw for shit, which may be the only reason the titans look so disturbing (since their anatomy is always off because he can't into anatomy), but overall, it's the best shonen in a long time. Read the manga.

Those are all shit and your friends have terrible taste.
>>
>>101345503
Can't you take, like 24 fucking minutes to watch a single fucking episode you fucking pile of shit instead of shitting up the board with your shitty thread we had 234928 times that lasts 3 days each ?
>>
>>101348088
>its plebeian shonen garbage that retards can enjoy
Ok then, recommend me 5 of your favourite animes that don't fall under that category.
>>
>>101350148
yeah, like i said anything offensive, you can't prove me wrong anon, so it's better to say you are not interested in it.. what are you? 16?

>>101350090
thanks, i may find some time to watch it and see if it's worth the 20 episodes of robot fighting senseless
>>
>>101350299
the funny thing is you are saying i can't understand things over giant robots going pew pew and you won't say what there is in this show beside this (until ep 19)
>>
>>101345503
>my friends said x
Nobody fucking cares about what your friends think on an anonymous image board. Take your personal shit elsewhere, and they're right.
>>
>>101350654
>what there is in this show beside this
Protip : it's about the character, not the robots.
>>
>>101350852
i'm pretty sure i'm not the only one who dislikes shinji, i've never seen someone saying he's a good character. Rei just keeps quiet and Asuka is a slut, misato is a good character and shinji's father seems to be an asshole but i know he knows what's the best thing to be done, nothing special with the characters

Grow up. It's not our job to show you things that you lack the intelligence to see.

I'm surprised you lasted 19 episodes on robots alone, considering they make up, at most, 40% of the show.
>>
>>101351362
no, they are just bad characters with nothing special.. there are tons of characters i hate and i know that are good characters. and yep, i forced myself to watch this to see all that deep thing people talk about and everything i saw was stupid fights, i feel sorry for people who like this show
>>
>>101351697
The show is 1/3 fights, 2/3 drama and character development.

You're dumb. Watch it again when you're older and have had enough life experience to understand the character interactions. Maybe you'll understand when you're older. I'd recommend coming back when you reach this site's age requirement to post your thoughts.
>>
>>101345503
It's fun for a while, but it's got some of the worst pacing I've seen in a while. Also it probably had the most QUALITY of last year. It's alright. It's not terrible shit like a lot of /a/ thinks, but it isn't AOTY or the savior of anime like the rest of the world thinks.
>>
>>101351069
>i've never seen someone saying he's a good character.
Why are is anybody still responding to this guy? He's either new, /v/, retarded/ or b8 and it's clear as day. Just stop.

I want /v/ to leave

>>101345503
It's average. Anybody who says it's shit is just jumping on le edgy bandwagon and hating it to fit in with the trend.

This is the problem with /a/ it's becoming exactly like /v/. Something gets popular and it suddenly becomes the new thing to call it shit, as if anybody cares on an anonymous imageboard.

That being said, it's not that great, it's average.
>>
>>101353687
>This is the problem with /a/ it's becoming exactly like /v/.
Stop this shit and go back to /v/. There are plenty of things that are total shit in SnK and it's totally valid for someone to say it's shit depending on what they value most in anime. If it's animation then SnK is complete garbage outside of a few bits.
>>
>>101350474
>animes
Fuck off.
>>
>>101353687
This is how /a/ and 4chan at large has always been. One of the strongest indicators of something's quality is how many shitposters it attracts.

>>101354201
Explain Nasuverse threads.

>>101354081
He's right though
>>
>>101348088
SnK is shit but it has nothing to do with /b/? What the fuck are you on about?
>>
>>101345503
It's good, there will always be people who hate whats popular

Is liveaction SnK movie a real thing?
>>
>>101356220
Yeah, there was a snk themed Subaru commercial with the movie's director too.

It's tricky in that it makes you think it might have potential and then completely fails to deliver on every count.

The premise and initial setup allows for a decent action show with cool scenes of people zipping around killing giants. Then it looks like it's going to subvert that expectation in the first big battle scene when things start off exactly the opposite of how it looks like it should. But then, just when you think something deeper might be going on in the writing it jumps back into another, less interesting, action setup and the writing is revealed to be a heaping mess of random happenings attempting to buy more time for the author to come up with explanations for all the bullshit that's already occurred. Some people are still hooked thinking there will be a big payoff when that eventually happens, but it's pretty clear that anything they come up with at this point will be contrived and disappointing.
