[Anime] Shingeki no Kyojin

Post  AimoAio on Mon May 13, 2013 12:13 pm

MangaHelpers wrote:Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by titans. Titans are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of titans.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a titan in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a colossal titan that appears out of thin air. As the smaller titans flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single titan and take revenge for all of mankind.

I guess this is what you're talking about?
Spoiler:
I haven't watch the anime, will do it some time. But with all the funny post I get from facebook, my impression of this anime is...weird?(Like it's funny more than serious? Even though I know that it's a serious anime)?

^LOL That gif is too funny!! I can see why you think this is a weird / funny anime if gifs like that one are all you see on facebook / tumblr. But Shion, I can guarantee this to you in Nezumi's name that ONCE you sit down in front of your screen and watch the first episode, you'll see that SnK is much more of a serious anime than a comedy one. And you'll be hooked. For real, by its animation, storyline, and BGM. Sigh.

Thanks for creating this thread Aimo! This anime is super popular over here in Japan, too! Every Sunday on Youtube Japan, when other videos are being divided into general lumpy tags like music, sports, entertainment and such, Shingeki no Kyojin has its own tag! *__*

This series is so damn interesting so far. I just hope that it (manga) won't end badly.

I love you Aimo for making this thread cheers

I was scared the anime won't live up to the manga, but I think it's doing a great job with it. I'm loving the music *___*
Next episode should be epic if handled right, might even surpasses episode 5 in terms of awesomeness Twisted Evil

So I'm interested, what did you think of the ending of ep 5? My friends who don't read the manga were freaking out about it XD I saw some reaction videos on YT and they all were hilarious too.

Ep 5? Isn't the latest epi 6? xD

6 is awesome. BUT I LOVE 4 and 5 a loooooot. And yeah, the next epi better be equally badass Twisted Evil

@Shion: That's the one! xD When the little girl asked her mother what it was, I was like "OH NO. IT'S A TITAN COMING" and then THAT THING came barreling round the corner doing it's funky run and knocking the guy away and I was just like "ROFLMAO". XD But it's just a few instances of small comedy moments, the anime itself is SERIOUS STUFF. And it's dark.

Woah! That's really awesome! I know there's a lot of viewers and discussions going on in a lot of communities every week but I didn't know it's popularity was THAT high! Definitely the AOTS for me just now, unless Gargantia has something epic up it's sleeve in the remaining half of it's episodes.

@Selva: You mean when:
Spoiler:
Eren was eaten by the titan right?
Shit that was scary. I mean it was both a leg AND an arm and I was TOTALLY NOT EXPECTING THAT TO HAPPEN. My mouth was pretty wide open in shock from there until the ending song. LOL. But yeah I know:
Spoiler:
He won't die. I mean, you can't kill the MC off in episode 5, it defies manga/anime logic. xD Though I am wondering how he'll get out of it. Saw his way out of it's belly using that blade thing? (eww) or maybe he gets rescued (I think by Levi if I remember that spoiler from shingeki wiki right but then as soon as I saw that tiny bit of spoiler I immediately closed the window so I can't remember for sure....XD).
Must censor spoilers properly because this anime is too epic to be spoiled for those who have yet to catch up with all the episodes. xD

lol this is genius:
Spoiler:

Aimo, yes I meant that scene XD that pretty much was my same reaction when I read that chapter for the first time too. 'THAT CAN'T BE HAPPENING ;__;'. I thought he will give one of his speeches and get out of there in no time haha
But yeah, that scene was really amazing. Hopefully the next episode will get this same treatment from the staff because the part it should cover from the manga is really great.

monn, yes I meant the last scene from ep 5 XD

Haha that gif! xD I saw it on MAL yesterday. Btw I'm pretty sure Armin:
Spoiler:
Becomes sooooo much more useful later when he uses his brains. He's not a fighter type...I don't think?

And IKR? I was so shocked he didn't! I was literally screaming at the end of Ep5 when I saw the preview was going to be a flashback and not about the current state of events. Still, it was a pretty nice episode which showed why Mikasa cared so much about Eren. And that scarf moment was just soooo sweet! ;__; <3 Since when did Eren become so cool? xD

Anyway when does Levi properly appear?! I WANT TO SEE HIM IN ACTION. XD boo selva, you changed your icon xD

I decided to give this anime a go, after finding out that Kamiya is going to voice as one of the character. Embarassed

Episode one is pretty good, with how they show how the humans are after 100 years of peaceful life.
I think I must be pretty weird for thinking how strong the titan's teeth is when the human is getting eaten because even the bones are eaten.
Some of the soundtrack gives me TRC feel and I kind of like it.

Dunno if you guys have seen this picture before, but apparently a Japanese Photoshop-CG user named Koji Tajima created a fanart of our beloved series.

Spoiler:
The official one that he used as the reference for that picture is highly this one...
Spoiler:

...That smexy back-figure of a supposedly older Eren is just @#$%^&*!!! And I thought I'm a Levi-loyalist.

ah yup, I saw that one. omg yes that guy's back looks so smexy *___*
The Colossal Titan looks really great and menacing there too.
oh, did you hear there's going to be a live action movie of the manga?

@Shion: glad to have you on board XD yeah, I'm loving the music of this show.

Yes, Armin is like the brains of the gang. He comes up with great plans later on.

hmm the next episode should cover chapter 7. So, if we go in the order of the chapters from here on out, then Levi should show up again in chapter 11... so 4 or 5 more episodes. I really suck at this so I'm sorry if my speculation is completely off Razz

lol you changed your too XD Yogi <3333

I need to sit in agony for another 4 weeks?! D: The paaaaaaain. Maybe I'll read the manga after my exams lololol. xD NO. DON'T CHEAT AHEAD MYSELF. D:

And ooohhh yeah I saw that on twitter monn. I'd definitely want to go see the live action movie when it comes out! It will be so epic. I wonder how on earth they'll manage the 3D gear movements, it looks hella complicated.

I found the image on zerochan and yogi was too cute not to be made into an avatar. xD

IKR? ;___; if you start reading you won't be able to stop Embarassed
The manga is great but the anime is great too. I'd advice people to read the manga only after the anime is finished or if the anime changed some things in the story. But so far it's doing good.

I love this avatar <3

btw, I read the manga up until latest coz I was afraid the anime would deviate from the manga in some places ya know (coz that happens a lot) and I wanted to know the canon main story first before watching.

lol I know right...!!! And there will be a live action movie. Now that this Tojima guy has raised our standard with his breath-taking fanart, the movie committee better revise their plan and produce a super awesome movie. The latest chapter was released a week ago *___*

Caught up with the anime, looking forward to see how the MC is gonna survive from that.

I'm really interested to see how the live action is going to be like. With the titans, the gears and blood everywhere, I'm kind of expecting a really awesome action movie(if it's gonna be a movie).

Apparently it's a symbol of “fertility, death, rebirth, and hope". Probably in reference to Mikasa regaining her will to fight because of what Eren said to her before.

But yet again another epic episode. Very Happy Though I thought for one moment that the

Titan attacking the other titans was Eren reincarnated/resurrected. XD (cause it saved Mikasa first) Then again, I was like wait what MC becomes titan? Not quite right....

I didn't know that a fruit will have such symbolic meaning.

Episode 7 is really epic and dark at the same time.
Spoiler:
Ever since the anime mention that the Titans can regenerate themselves, I got the feeling that Eren will somehow get Titan's cells in his body. Just to get back his arm and leg.
Seeing that rage Titan from episode 7 just rise the chances of that happening.
