I just started watching the anime yesterday, I just caught up to it right now. I have one MAJOR complaint of the series, that complaint is the main character himself. I really don't like the main character, to me he just acts like an idiot! But if you take him out I generally like the series itself, even though to me it's kinda predictable who is the true main villian of the series or atleast I have an idea who is the main villian. Even though I don't like Eren, I will keep watching the series and see how it ends.
I really honestly think the anime fucked up with Eren and regularly makes him look worse than he should be. I don't know if it's the direction or the voice acting, but I like Eren in the manga, but I hate him in the anime.
So is the manga Eren more likeable because seriously, I don't like him very much?
There's a lot less crying and hesitation, since everything isn't nearly as dragged out, plus the events of ep 24 play out much better for him (refer to my earlier post). I dunno, it's certainly possible to still dislike him after reading the manga, but I see a LOT more anime viewers talking about how terrible he is than manga readers. Maybe it is Yuki Kaji's voice acting? Although I don't have a problem with him as Johnny Joestar in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.
