So a friend convinced me to try this show out, and for the most part I like it. Pretty original concept, kinda disturbing, nice art, etc.
But this fucker kinda ruins it for me. Typical angsty, boring cliche hero.
I think a show with such a unique premise deserves a more unique lead.
yeah his angst annoyed the heck out of me but keep pressing on. it gets much better and he becomes more bearable.
See, I knew this was coming
Bertholdt is the Colossal Titan
Reiner is the Armored Titan
Ymir is a Titan
OP is a faggot
I like Eren. An angry, driven by hard work and guts lead isn't the most original kind out there but where SnK makes it work is how he's presented.
He's out of his goddamn mind with tard rage for killing Titans and the series doesn't sugar coat that.
Eren may be retarded, but he still manages to be somewhat entertaining. In fact I like the character's even though they're ridiculous, but the story gets pretty stupid pretty quick.
You don't have to lie to him you know
It was an ok series. Lots of flaws but overall enjoyable. I still think the Titans look ridiculous. Couldn't take the show seriously.
it's like i'm really talking to a retarded person!
Yeah, he saw his mother get eaten by one. Who wouldn't have blind rage for killing something that did that?
Mikasa is kill
>so a friend convinced me to try this show out
sounds more like an enemy to me
Wow, anon. You've just supplied a totally unique opinion that has never ever been stated before. You should totally continue to serve this board by spreading your amazingly insightful and original opinions. Congratulations OP, you have found your life calling. Please continue to save anime by posting more threads like this one.
Yeah eren is standard shonen protag a bit, but only on the surface, in fact he's more of a neat subversion of that.
In all other shows with MAXIMUM TRY BELIEVE IT WIN YEAH ONE PIECE HOKAGE protagonists we're supposed to identify with his ambition, see it as a positive trait in his character, in eren the reverse it true. The show repeatedly emphasizes his obsession with killing titans is not healthy at all, in fact it's goddam psychotic, he is a violent, disturbed person; as a fucking 8 year old he killed 2 men. It's a deep rooted lust for violence manifesting itself in titan killing revenge which could very easily (and seems to sometimes in titan form) be redirected at humans.

Annie is love
Annie is life
Annie did nothing wrong
My only problem is that neither the show nor the manga ever attempt to expand on that at all.
The closest thing I can compare it to is like they are trying to make a carbon copy of Guts from Berserk, but without any of the character development, badassery, or rage that he has.
hey man it aint over yet, they could develop it later on, when eren is in some sort of decision where he has to kill someone.
I don't understand hate for Eren. He's not the best character in the series, but he's alright. I guess. Also, once you pay more attention to the more interesting characters, the series really does get more bearable.
Except kill all those innocent people because muh father, while also having a bitchy Barbara Streisand Jew face/nose.
You're all a bunch of degenerates.
