Admittedly, I found this series by tfs's parody of it. I decided to watch the original and i was instantly hooked. This show is, as I said, not only my favorite show ever, but quite possibly the best show ever, or at least in the top 10. The only problem that I can think of is that Mikasa is a bit of a Deus Ex Machina. Season 2 is confirmed for 2016. Get hype.
