Anyone wanna talk about the anime and/or manga Attack on Titan? I'm a HUGE fan looking for other fans to just discuss the show with, speculate, theorize or let others know your opinion or ideas from the show/manga. Talk about anything AOT related here, I'd just really want to have some AOT fan friends to talk to at times. :D
Yeah. I kind of wondered what was with the whales and dinosaurs and all. I mean...they've lived in the Walls for a hundred years with little to no knowledge of anything past that, so they wouldn't even know what a whale or dinosaur IS...some people I've heard speculate it's some kind of foreshadowing, but I doubt it.
I do read the manga, and yeah...the plot IS having a bit of a slower pace. I don't mind it all that much, but I do wish they'd pick up the pace just a little. We haven't seen the main cast in forever. The second season was a bit disappointing to me, but I kind of wondered if that was because I could already predict what was going on, having read and caught up with the manga and all, but maybe it was the flashbacks. There's DEFINITELY too many of them.
Is there any particular reason why the art style throws you off in the manga? Is it just that the images don't really seem complete or the shading? They kind of threw me off and I hesitated. I wasn't happy with it at first.
Yeah. Reiner's always been a favourite character of mine, so when I first learned about their secret I wasn't sure if I should be excited for the plot twist or sad because it means there's pretty much a guarantee he's going to die. Bertholt too. Wasn't sure what to think of him except later I hated him.
The art style threw me off a bit too, but I kind of adapted to it. It changed as the manga went on and I'm not sure if it became better or worse. Certainly a little less complete, but very detailed faces and so on.
I've only watched the first season when it was airing so I've forgotten almost everything about it. What did you like about it though?
About the first season? Mostly it's all the various plot twists that I like. Also there's some good character development. Main character being a Titan? I'm not a huge fan of the main character, but it DID make things a bit more interesting. Also the opening music is amazing.
What about you, from what you remember? What do you like/hate about it?
The way AoT subverts the expected (eg. Eren getting his leg bitten off and the sudden appearance of the colossal titan just when things were looking up) made it pretty clear that 'no one is safe'. From what I recall, that was what I liked and appreciated most from a structural viewpoint. Overall, I found it to be a solid show, but the long hiatus between season one and two (or whichever one took several years to make idremember) has drained away all my hype for the series - so it was enjoyable but not as memorable as some other anime I've watched.
Main character comes off as being a little whiny bitch for most of the show, even more that the dude from SAO which I didn't think was possible.
Other than that it's otherwise a pretty good anime where plot armor doesn't extend to far.
Season 2 was pretty good.
Yeah, I was a BIT disappointed, looking back at Season 2. They seriously downplayed a lot of the events and it annoyed me. I don't mind that they were adding stuff, but they downplayed a lot of stuff, making it not as intense as some scenes should've been. Don't get me wrong, I love the show/manga. Always have, always will. I'm pretty much the ultimate fan of this and have memorized everything by heart, but this was still a bit of a letdown in parts.
