Just saw the first episode of Shingeki_no_Kyojin~Attack On Titan, The animation is beautiful and fresh, awesome music , it is intensely dramatic, and down right epic.
Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.

Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

I believe they have tried, unfortunately it seems like the company behind it has refused to license it for streaming to anyone. I'm not sure at the over all details but despite how anticipated this series is for a lot of people, nobody has managed to get it.

As much as I hate piracy, it's situations like this where they put me in a bad position...

I feel the same! I've only just gotten into anime I'd hate to be stealing.

Though I guess piracy doesn't affect someone that didn't want your money to begin with. :S

The law is actually a grey area when it comes to a product you cant legally get, atleast, in the UK its not really illegal to take a product that you cant pay for. Generally this law is intended for use with old games that you bought back in 1992 but lost the diskette to so I dunno how far it stretches over international recent products. But since Japan isnt in the EU it lacks alot of the copy-write and piracy protections given by being in it.

I dunno, its just like for every company in Japan thats progressive enough to notice that if they actually treat the international market properly then they'll get something back theres atleast 10 who make terrible decisions. Slow DvD releases, dreadfully slow movie releases, simple lack of options to legally view series. It really is no surprise that anime is so majorly pirated. Piracy is a service problem, if you're expecting people to pay for a service thats often slower and not any better quality than what fan subbers can provide wheres the incentive? Its not like CR actually does anything that a fansubber doesn't do, we dont get interviews with the cast or anything interesting like that as extras for subbing, theres no incentive beyond trying to support your favored industry. Im not saying that they cause all of it, some people are just cheap jerks who take everything for nothing, but they really dont help themselves.

BTW... the show is already being discussed here [http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-798407/attack-on-titan-discussions] in case your thread is locked for being a duplicate. Just an FYI.
