Somewhat? SOMEWHAT? Well, here's what I found disappointing about it:



As I've said, Eren = Kamina, Mikasa = Yoko, Armin = Simon, in a basic sense. Although Eren and company are, y'know, worse. Yoko isn't an invincible superwoman like Mikasa, Simon isn't a Shinji clone, and when Kamina


But yeah, I agree with most of the above. It tries really hard to make humanity a bunch of pathetic victims, constantly alternating between futile hot-bloodedness, random superpoweredness, and massive explosions of angst. And I guess it...er...succeeds?

And it's probably supposed to be "Attack of the Titans," but bad title translations are nothing new.

Agreed. I still hold some hopes for the anime though; I don't think it'll end up being a "masterpiece", but I'll probably rate it 7/10 or something like that.

So many feels in chapter 50.

Here in crunchyroll people consider everything and anything to be spoiler so I'll just leave my comments inside a spoiler tag.

So... given that the anime thread has nearly three hundred posts. but we're not allowed to talk about the manga there even now after the anime is over. How many pages will this one make?

I just view Eren as inexperience at this point.
I don't believe his hand to hand combat skills aren't going to be the factor, now. The warriors seemed to have been alive 5x longer than Him. I could be wrong. That lack of experience is why he seems to have his butt being kicked a lot.

I honestly don't have a problem with the way the story is moving. And I most certainly don't feel like it's lost any of it's original elements. That overwhelming fear of terrifying odds being against you is still there. Really, anyone can still die. These last 2 chapters have left that as a reminder for us, especially in 50. Everyone nearly died in that one. I even held my breath for a moment when I thought Mikasa was gonna be titan food next. Eren having the titan shifting ability is about the only chance humanity actually has of being able to take a step forward to finding a real solution to their problems and getting some answers as to what's really going on. As far as we know, there's only 5 titan shifters, which I don't think is all that bad. Only 1 appears to be on the good side that being Eren, with the other 4 in opposition. Ymir is still kinda iffy at this point. It's not like everybody is gonna have the ability to titan shift. It would kind of make sense for there to be others with that same capability as Eren, seeing as how it had to come from somewhere originally, which means other people would have it,or have had it. I think it just adds on more to the mystery of what's going on in the dark. Also, I'm glad that Eren wasn't killed off like that in the beginning. Wouldn't make sense, seeing as how Isayama apparently set it up for Eren to become a titan shifter. Having someone else randomly thrown in there as the main character would be pretty dumb if you ask me. I don't have much of a problem with Eren. In fact, I kind of sympathize with the kid because he's having all of this stuff happen to him and he doesn't know why and is desperately trying to seek answers just like everyone else. What he lacks right now is the experience and knowledge of what he's become. But I feel like once he actually gets more of a grasp on what happened to him and what's actually going on then he'll be much more of a capable protagonist. Only a matter of time.

Controls Titans remotely, from what we've seen. Of course, the main character would be the one to get this power, who else but? He's going to misuse it. I like the side characters in this story more than the mains, honestly. Why couldn't, I don't know, Krista have gotten that power instead? That would have significantly increased her plot importance than what it currently is assumed to be. Would have been a cool twist too.

So... I decided to check out CR's new manga deal.... should NOT have done that! I haven't been THAT hardcore spoiled in a while, and I'm not even sure what's going on!

But now that I know... the anime's second ending is PAINFULLY obvious, lol.

Hey so no spoilers but how closely does the anime follow the manga? No descriptions please just a vague answer like "not very" or "fairly closely" will do, thanks. Also which chapter of the manga picks up where the anime stopped? And would you recommend starting there? Or will too many important things be missed?

In terms of story, very closely and adds filler but censors the gore a lot. Also the last episode changed some things which was a big deal.
The training camp episodes also changed some things but those aren't important.
The manga is scary and depressing while the anime feels like a shonen for its focus on action plus the soundtrack which makes it cool.
If you don't like reading manga then just start from chapter 34 but if you want to see what really happened in the last episode then start from chapter 33.

Thanks, that was just the type of answer I was looking for.

It's not that I don't like manga I just don't like redundancy. It makes it hard for me to stay interested when I already know the outcome, which is the very same reason I don't want to read LOTR. Plus I haven't found a good copy through my usual source and CR manga only has the last 5 chapters so I'm pretty bummed about that and I want to catch up quickly.
