So... You hate this... Because it's popular?
>>
No, because it is bad.
>>
Yes. We have tastes that are different than the general population, for better or for worse, so naturally we tend to hate popular things. It's not that complicated, idiot.
>>
>>101507285
No, because it isn't trendy any more.
>>
I hate things that are poplar.
>>
I dislike the fact that it's overhyped, even though the writing is horrible and the animation is just bad half of the time.

I welcome it though, since it could usher in a new age of darker and more serious works that have actual plot. Moeshit has ruled far too long...

No, because had a great setting and premise, which are now wasted on another shounenshit crappy manga since when shifters have been introduced.

Also, author is a gigantic faggot cause "It's too popular for original dark ending, so i'm going to change it".
>>
>>101507269
>So... You hate this... Because it's popular?
No. I hate it because it's full of plot holes, its characters not having any character, it's characters having a hivemind and whenever someone knows something they all seem to know it (also finish each other's sentences from miles away all the time) and general edgyness.

The way it works OP is, that /a/ watches something and /a/ may like it, but as that something begins to become popular, /a/'s hate for it begins to increase, and once the anime has reached peak popularity, /a/ has reach peak hate for it.

There used to be a graph about this.

>>
>>101507269
I'm sure that's part of it for some people. Since it became popular it has gotten worse and worse and the author is being influenced into changing things as well as being afraid to kill off characters that are popular as to avoid a backlash.

No, I was absolutely in love with the manga and then the anime early on. I thought this was the shit I had been waiting for.

Then fucking Isayama shits the fucking bed and pretty much outs himself as a shit writer by saying he was going to change his original, authentic ending for the series to make a more lighthearted ending that didn't piss off his fans by killing any of the popular characters.

When I saw that, I literally never watched another episode or read a new chapter. Isayama is shit with no integrity as an author.

>Basically the author said the original plan is inclining towards a traumatic end, particularly when in the earlier stage of the manga. He also quoted the movie "Mist" as an example of what kind of ending he had in mind. But now he thinks if he just went with his emotion back then it would be really mean and insensitive, almost criminal. And besides that destructive urge had already been fading from his mind for some time and so he no longer thinks it is something he really wants to do now.

Wow, it's fucking nothing! Just as expected of course.
The Mist is a horrendous movie with an equally horrendous (and stupid) ending, any work that says that it's not going to be like it is good news.

Also, learn to type.
>>
>>101513661
Him changing the ending is not the direct point of his shitness.

He could literally be saying: "I originally had a bad ending in mind when I wrote it, but now I'm going to make a better ending. It will literally be better."

The point is he doesn't need to be saying shit like that, of course authors go through shifts and changes but they don't need to bring me into the process while the shit is still being released and made. It makes him look unsure and like he's just doing whatever the fuck he feels like. It gives off the ominous vibe that he doesn't have a real idea of his own story, and that makes me think it's just going to turn into another One Piece where he never stops making it as long as it keeps selling.

It was absolutely amazing when it felt like an anime where the protagonists truly were not in control, and had an enemy they just couldn't compete with.

I don't know, I think it's better to say it and make the edgy audience drop it than to give them false hopes and make them kill themselves of rage at the end. Moreso if you think that there might be people paying for the manga while waiting for a bad end. As long as he doesn't say that he's going to change the length of the story, I don't see any problems whatsoever.

No, if you make a claim based on facts and then you claim it's the other person's job to find those facts, you're being retarded.

Opinion. The fact that I don't think like an edgy teenager (you) doesn't mean I'm in denial. I'll repeat, the Mist is a terrible movie, and anything that does that kind of ending will be automatically shit.

This right there is the reason for a lot of people.

You know, the starting setting, atmosphere and so on it's not bad. Actually, it's amazing.

But instead of a seinen "we'll win with our brains and new technology" it became a shonen "i can become a titan too!".

The fact alone of seeing such great IP ideas wasted on this ridicolous and dumb plot is enough hate-inducing.

This literally has nothing to do with being a seinen. Jesus fucking Christ /a/.

At this point your complaint is "IT'S NOT THE STORY I IMAGINED SO IT'S SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT!".
You know what you no-talent piece of shit? Why don't you get some BASIC drawing and writing skills and make your own manga with that sort of mature seinen story you imagined?

this is my first time posting in /a/, so here goes.

AoT is the first real anime show I've watched (i don't count flcl). and I love it. This show is making me feel emotions that I rarely feel anymore. I only feel pity for the people in this thread that have become jaded from watching so much anime. After I watched flcl many years ago, I knew I wouldn't enjoy any anime the same because of the emotional connection I had established with that one show.
>>
Not really. I personally don't like it because the style it uses (them fearful eyes *shudder*) as well as the fact that you can never be certain about a character. eren seems like a coward in the first few episodes and yet he killed kidnappers in cold blood when he was a child? I find the inconsistencies are what bothers me.

I hate it because it kind of already went past the concept I enjoyed it for and decided to become a very traditional shonen manga.

Came across as a cool "humanity fighting for it's survival" and a really personal story between these characters. Had a atmosphere very akin to The Walking Dead comics.

Though since they've added in the Titan shit, I just don't care as much as I used to. Every since they brought in the Titan form and the Titan group, everything has felt so inconsequential
