Anyone want to spoiltag what part the episode ended at? I've already read a lot of the manga so I'm just waiting until CR release the episode first. Just curious how far it got.

Yes I would also like to know why Episode 5 disappeared for tomorrow? Now I'm starting to get nervous.

They better not kill off potato girl lol. Crazy episode though. I hope I'll be able to watch episode 6 on this site. The 1080p is nice.

Possibly a dream? Would be suspicious to be at the fifth episode to have what happened actually happen and then have the next episode be about Mikasa and Eren's past. Guess we'll just have to wait unless peeps cannot wait until next week and hope someone who has read the manga puts it into a spoiler for ya!

I wont post spoilers at all, so dont worry, but I've read the manga to this anime and I just thought I'd give you all a heads up (no spoilers of course):

Firstly, i know that fir whatever twisted reason, any fanbois among you will somehow rationalise what im saying as an attack on your person, so yeah, inb4 the fanbois rage, anyways...

Tl;wr = if you're looking for an action anime, this tv show is NOT for you. But if you're into drama...well...read on...


This anime will have filler...TONS of it. I'm talking DBZ kind of filler where the episodes themselves are just full of unneccessary nothingness, but worse far far worse. Eventually it'll enter Naruto filler, where there will be flashbacks...every...bloody...minute.
And oh boy, it wont stop there, it will have flashbacks, within flashbacks, episode 7 will be devoted to nothing but redundant flashbacks about stuff that doesnt justify any animation and could easily have been said in a couple seconds of dialogue.
There will be unneccessary self-monologuing, and they'll repeat it again and again and again.
Now I know what you're thinking, "But from what I've seen, any filler is just emotional drama right? Thats intergretal to the atmosphere of the anime!" Yes, true...ever seen speed racer? Remember being reminded that Racer X was speeds brother atleast 10 times an episode complete with the same stock animation as if you have the attention span of a flea? THATS what you'll be dealing with, being reminded of stuff every 2 mins, oh and of course with flashbacks as well because they literally think we're that thick.
That said, the awesome action animation in the opening to this anime? Dont expect that level of action to happen often. It would be fine as a Drama if the dramatics evolved and actually mattered, but to reiterate, the drama consists of being reminded of the same things consistantly.

Like I said, I know people will QQ rage at me, but dont say I didnt warn you, and its a shame an interesting plot is plagued eith this nonsense.

So enjoy what you can but dont get your hopes up every week or expect a lot to happen each episode. Its quite possible that the current battle happening now will encompass atleast 8 episodes consisting of the characters just moping (figuretive, not spoiling of course).

On the plus side this anime will have a radical row of plot twists.

I understand where you are coming from, but they can make filler and flashbacks work. Adding the training flashback before the second attack was a good decision and lets you get to know who you need to.

I agree that the action takes a back seat to character drama. However to think that they will have to pace it and continue to remind people in the way a monthly release manga has to is not fair.

Well I can't say for sure how bad it will be because I don't read manga in one sitting. I've already run into a flashback volume and while it kind of bothered me it wasn't horrible. I think the anime can do a decent job of extending scenes that need it and limiting redundant information. This isn't a "Big 3" yet(?) where we are 15 episodes down the line and only 5 mins of battle have passed so we need to be reminded of what exactly they are fighting for in the first place.

As far as twists go I saw it coming
but that doesn't mean it wont be a good story. I can guess about other plot twists as well because this world they live in is pretty cynical and hints are everywhere so it isn't rocket science. That said I'm only 4 volumes in at the moment I'm sure things can change for better or worse as I still have a ways to go.
