- Are the Titans from Attack on Titan Evil? by Anime Defender
Oh, that makes sense. In episode 1, the big Titan just disappeared. I'm not sure what the hell happened. I'm surprised how the anime didn't really censor the scene where the mother was being eaten by the Titan. Yeah, I can't forget that damn scene. Gives me chills.
@takashichea: The anime got a little censored but not obtrusive at all like other series, i'm glad they went this way.
The giant titan disappeared because it was only there to open a breach in the wall for the smaller ones, as far as i remember after that scene, the armored titan appears (another "special" type), makes some damage and the story has a time skip.
Read half the available chapters before watching the first episode a few days ago, then caught up after watching it the next day. I am loving it. The opening is cool as hell and I can't wait to see some of the really crazy stuff get animated, hopefully with consistent high quality.
The official site for the Attack on Titan manga has confirmed that the limited edition of the forthcoming 11th volume will be bundled with an OAD with the title "Ilse's Journal". The limited edition volume will be released on August 9th for JPY ¥3480, reflecting the addition of the OAD and the staff for the current TV series will helm production.
I hope this series gets legally streamed either by Funimation or Crunchyroll.
The beginning scenes with the guys using those gear was so awesome. The animation is top notch.
The rest of the anime discussion threads are located at #Anime Vice Discussion Threads except for Aku no Hana Series Discussion. Hope you enjoy them. I know you had trouble finding good threads in the forum these days since they're usually flooded with battle topics and such.
If there is not anime series from Spring 2013 you enjoy, I'll be happy to add them to the discussion.
April 12, 2013 – FLOWER MOUND, TX – FUNimation Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the SVOD rights for the highly anticipated anime series -- Attack on Titan. The 25 episode post-apocalyptic series is directed by Tetsuro Araki (Guilty Crown and Highschool of the Dead) and from the studio behind the Ghost in the Shell series (Production I.G.)
From the director of Death Note comes the bone-crunching Attack on Titan.
Many years ago, the last remnants of humanity were forced to retreat behind the towering walls of a fortified city to escape the massive, man-eating Titans that roamed the land outside their fortress. Only the heroic members of the Scouting Legion dared to stray beyond the safety of the walls – but even those brave warriors seldom returned alive. Those within the city clung to the illusion of a peaceful existence until the day that dream was shattered, and their slim chance at survival was reduced to one horrifying choice: kill – or be devoured!
Episode one of Attack on Titan is now available now for FUNimation's Elite Video Subscribers. Click here to watch.
@Acura_Max and @shels @rubberluffy:
I finally found out that Attack on Titan is legally streamed. However, it's only for Elite Video Subscribers.
Weird but awesome! Being a premium Crunchyroll member, I can get the snapshots to make the profile portraits for @shels. That means I'm going to be on the wiki project.
I'll tweet at Tom.
Regarding Attack on Titan series, I like the characters, Eren and Mikasa. Eren has the shonen like dream to go outside to explore the world, but he faces such a scary task, the titans. Mikasa has that charm to her.
Looks like they're rearranging the order of chapters into something more chronological. Episode 3 looks like it's gonna be using what were flashbacks in Volume 4 of the manga, but took place not long after the events of episodes 1&2. Also episode 2 was really slow paced. Maybe a little too slow?
Just watched the first episode. Wow some of the art and animation is really really well done. I hope it keeps it up for the rest of the series. The sound and music direction is pretty solid too, I like what they did with the sounds of the horses when the Survey Group came back.
Damn the last scene in the first ep with the Titan eating Eren's mom reminded me of Evangelion. How the EVAs go into beast mode.
Episode 2 is great. The sense of disillusionment is heavy at the beginning since the Titans have killed so many people, Eren and Mikasa lost Carla, and more lives are lost to reduce the burden on food. I enjoyed the sense of hope with Eren and his group when they enlist in the Survey Corps to get revenge on the Titans.
Got to love Yoko Hikasa's voice for the ending theme song.
I couldn't help but stare at it and wondering if it's lipstick. The other girls don't have it.
Oh I forgot you're ahead of me in the manga. I did notice those cool things.
They release a comic to ease the intenseness of the episodes.
Hmm, can't say I'm the that fond of Mikasa's more dolled up look at the end of ep2 there. It's probably because of the lip coloration and the long hair more than anything else.
I wouldn't worry about that long hair, it'll be gone in a bit.
