DEAR GOD IT'S A NI-CROW-MANCER!

That said, Production I.G. has a horrible track record of ruining shows near it's end.

Blue Exorcist, Magi's final episodes, SAO's train wreck, Guilty Crown's Shark Jumping middle season.

The Director also Directed Death Note...and we all remember that ending.


Attack on Titan is amazing and will keep moving strong, but I still fear for it's Season end falling short due to plot edits.

It's actually a bit scary how overly annoying how in this day and age, how "Hype" can really destroy an anime. SAO stunk but Attack On Titan is Mediocre. But no matter what, whenever an anime is in the spotlight, people always need to go INSANE over it, even if it's mediocre. They want to turn everything about it into a meme, they want to reference it everywhere, they can't just let the anime, be an anime. They suddenly have to call Attack On Titan the "Best anime of 2013" Because they have to be pretentious about it and never be modest.

To answer the question, yes and no. Both shows were fueled by massive annoying hype, but Attack On Titan is far more mature than SAO, Attack On Titan doesn't have much fanservice, lolis, tentacle rape, plotholes, 1 dimensional charatcers. It's definitely being taken more seriously than SAO did, SAO had Bad guys for the sake of having bad guys, Good or evil, the logic was far more childish than most shonen manga/anime. AOT has more 2 dimensional characters, but I can definitely see effort in the show because when it comes to SAO, when you look at everything it is, little sister cliches, the costumes, etc. It was simply more of a product that wanted to sell itself to make money, not have a decent story. Attack On Titan looks like its trying very hard to have a story and NOT see itself as a product just to sell.

This thread was posted in March, when AoT hasn't aired yet.
But wow @ my psychic skills. I predicted this.
I made this hype to happen in CR. I'm a goddess.

This prophecized AoT's hype and popularity will far exceed Guilty Crown's!

Rofl, don't be delusional. A little thread cannot affect the opinions of hundreds of thousands of users.

Both shows are selling an amazing world as their draw.

The End of the World feel of Attack on Titan and the vast RPG of Sword Art Online work really well in drawing in fans and viewers.

The characters only put icing on the Attack on Titan cake.

Honestly, I've only seen the first episode. I don't know where I stand with it yet.

You mean will it end up being a huge disappointment despite it's excellent start?

No, I actually think AoT will remain consistent with it's above average quality. Of course anything can go wrong. Time will tell I guess.

I don't believe that Attack on Titan will be the new SAO because I feel that it will go by so fast and have so many epic things that it will run out of time. That's my worry that the series will end without any explanations.
