Not the physics unfortunately... of either the gear or the titans or the walls or any of that... so I try not to think about it...

I'd consider that a plot/story device. I mean just strictly about how they go about living.

Titans appearing out of nothing is just wrong on SO MANY LEVELS that I'm not worried about anything simpler than that.

or the walls

Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not...

At least I can say that both will make sense within the internal logic of the show as we know it.

Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not spoil. Must not...

DAMN IT ATTACK ON TITAN. DO STORY FASTER.

I know what the manga explains... still doesn't hold up. But it looks cool and it is a fun story so again I try not to think about it.

I'm new to Titan and I have a question:

Why can't the inhabitants live underground to not be tormented by the Titans? At least until they find out how to get rid of them.
Why on earth would they do that? They lived carefree lives for 100 years behind the safety of the walls. Never worrying or caring about what the titans were doing outside, there was no "torment". You're suggesting they should have lived bleak existences underground popping outside to farm and hunt for food in terror instead of going about their normal lives with massive walls protecting them? lol wut?

It's only been 5 years since they discovered there was a colossal capable of breaking through the wall. You think they could have carved out a massive underground city capable of fitting all of humanity in those 5 years? It would be retarded to even try. That effort would be better spent reinforcing the walls with defenses and coming up with a weapon to combat the titans. A weapon they now have. His name is Eren Jaeger.


Not for those 100 years no. But the moment the Titans reemerged, planning could have commenced. I'm not talking about carving out massive underground cities in five years. I'm talking about making a quick shelter, then reinforcing it over the years. In that time of course they can plan and develop better ways to get rid of the Titans. But while they are planning, they can also have a safer place to sleep at night, and not be worried about having their home destroyed.

I'll grant you the maneuver gear and titans of course; that's just like a shounen mecha or ninjitsu or whatever.

But the rest seems solid, at least to me. I think.

Just saying you have to accept what the manga/show gives you in cases like this which means it is unfortunately difficult for us to conjecture as to what alternatives would be better. The show/manga doesn't give you enough of the world rules to figure it out, so you have to wait for them to tell you.

Gotcha. There's probably a rule against one-word replies, but I don't have anything else to add really. And I thought some sort of acknowledgement was in order. So here's some invisible words to compensate.

yeah ... maybe if Isayama sensei writes about it later

By the way at Anime Expo , George Wada , the producer for Shingeki no Kyojin explained a couple things but Danny Cho was asking most of the question .They were showing some production notes.

They collaborated a lot of things with Isayama sensei. One that I could remember is the discussion about the faces and shape of the kyoujin. Is not to make them like big real people and to drew them with the faces that we see now ie the weird smiling kyoujin lol

Lots of cosplayers at the panel.

There is a woman who is part of the Recon Squad who is something of a Titan researcher. Sometime during the 2nd season we should get the scenes where she tells Earn the things she has discovered about the titans, including some really interesting stuff about their bodies.

and the OVA that is going to come out with one of the volumes in japan drops some interesting background hints.

I've only read as far as volume 5 of the manga, since that is all that has been released here so far, so that is about as much as I can say.
and needless to say I'm trying to avoid giving you details of what happens in those, I know I hate getting info spoiled for me.

Unfortunately I now know a few other things that I haven't read yet which doesn't help but It's damn hard avoiding info from people who have read the scanlations up to the current chapters.

Even something as mild as that should be put in the spoiler tag imo. If someone wants to know something, they will click on it, but you don't know if there is someone who does not want to read that. Please edit your post as soon as possible.

I find it funny that they didn't dig a giant moat around the walls

not like they had anywhere else to go why not dig a giant molt so titans won't be able to walk in. given a few can jump like madman but that is a few.


A fine idea, but then a titan probably would have showed up to deal with that as well, just like they did with the walls.

Japanese vocalists trying to speak German. So not Engrish, but kind of like it. Maybe Germangle?

Is that insensitive to anyone as a joke term?
