I don't personally get the Gargantia adoration. It's an ok enough series, but I'm just not dying to watch it every week. Attack on Titan is definitely the best anime this season for me. :)


It's because Gen Urobuchi's the writer for the show. Ever since Madoka Magica and Fate/Zero have become a huge success in both reception and sales, every subsequent show he's part of or wrote is bound to get a good amount of attention and hyped before it even airs.

I think I will reserve my judgement. The show is good so far but, I do find that a lot of shows with a strong start cannot quite keep up the momentum. I hope they can keep it going.

Attack on Titan's characters are absolutely horrible. Talk about typical and boring protagonist, Eren is just "the little train that could" of the anime. Everything about him is just stereotypical for male leads in anime, and the other two aren't good either. The girl is the "tough and scary girl", as they attempted to make someone that is original, when we see this type of behavior all the time in anime. The other boy is the "weak boy that will try his hardest to make some sort of effect" and shows no source of originality.

Eren tends to have rather annoying ramblings of emotions. Nothing he does is based off of any sort of logic and reasoning, rather, he lets things fly hoping they turn out alright. I really don't see how this is too great, the titans create a good psychological topic, due to their ruthlessness, but other than that, nothing really stands out. While I'm enjoying other animes, The Severing Crime Edge (A excellent anime if you can get past the hair fetish thing), Gargantia, Oreimo (guilty pleasure), SNAFU, and Henneko, as well as others, I can't seem to see what all the hype is about...

I watched 2 episodes so far and will not watch no more of attack on titan. I really can not believe that this is the show to watch this season. Why watch this if it is just monotonous. shows like this makes me not want to renew my membership

I still haven't figured out why people are so excited about a decent show when Gargantia is so much better.

About you comment questioning Eren being picked as the top 10. If you read the manga, you will see that most of the new recruits are pretty shitty or average at best. So it isn't that his determination is what allows him to be among the top ten, it is just that he is the best of the worse and nowhere near some of the other 9.

And although I would be the first to say that Eren is not that much of an interesting character, but to say that he is like any other male lead in most animes? I would have to disagree with that statement. Your typical male lead is what you see in most mainstream animes (Goku, Edward Elric, Kirito, Ichigo, Naruto......any other of those shitty chars). In comparison to them, Eren is a breath of fresh air. He is just your Average Joe, but he has a reason to go up against insurmountable odds, revenge. His blind hatred along with his naivety makes him overconfident. He later gets smacked down to reality, making him see the world differently and becoming more than some stupid kid.

I'm not saying he is an amazingly written character, but he is nowhere near as bad as you are making him out to be.

Why are y'all hating on Attack on Titan. Personally, I think Gargantia and Attack on Titan are a perfect combo for this season. I think Attack on Titan has this sense of disturbence that Higurashi, Elfen Lied, Another, and School Days (THE Jewels of Horror) don't have. It has a perfect mix of shounen and horror

I actually watched the first two episodes of the show, and frankly i was quite bored, i felt no real connection to the characters, the were too cookie cutter in my opinion. i felt like I've seen it all before. the art is too bold, the show I feel, is overdoing a lot of things in a way to overcompensate things like an otherwise weak and boring plot by simply stretching it and making "cool battles". i for one am thoroughly dissapointed in the show and dont see how it's the top show of the season. I absolutely adore Oreimo season 2, Henneko, and My You Romantic Comedy SNAFU, one of those shows would much rather be in my top.

I swear I'm the only one that didn't enjoy this anime. I'm not saying its a bad show, I love Shingeki No Kyojin and I've read most of the manga but It's just the anime approach to the show felt a little weird, I mean like the show was freaking hyped when I first saw it's PV and it looked fantastic! but when the anime finally came out, I was somehow disappointed in it. Most of the animation were still shots and the pacing felt really out of place... (Minor Complain: what's with Mikasa and her lipstick?). I mean its made by Production I.G ffs and the show looked very cheap-ish and doesn't even have the quality of, let's say, Psycho-Pass or Guilty Crown. Arrgh IDK! I just didn't enjoy the anime more than the manga. :\

Also, they make Eren look like such a c*nt.

So far I really love this series. I would say this is the best anime I have ever seen.
