Not interested in the genre, really.

Therefore, not interested in the anime.

Availability Information

Sorry, due to licensing limitations, videos are unavailable in your region
.


I'd watch it, if it was available in my region... I don't want to visit these pirate sites that streams anime for free with crappy resolution since i'd like to support the creators.

Call it what you want, but i think it's crazy that these licenses doesn't get distributed better and in more regions... I don't fancy paying every month to see a ton of great shows pass me by and get stuck with leftovers and series that are soon to be discontinued on this website.

It's the bloody internet! It's streaming! Streaming shouldn't be restricted to specific regions... At least not when there's real money involved and people pay the same amount of money in one region as the next who probably has more shows running through CR etc.

There, that's my /rant on that matter. Enjoy the show

It's just that none of the characters in the show does it for me. I don't like them. I don't care if they die(except potato girl). Eren, Mikasa, Whiny-kid. No, no, no. Just die already. It's also damn slow. The pacing is brutal. I like the world and the setting. The first intro was epic. The music overall is decent. But come on, it's over-hyped. I wanted much more than I've gotten so far. The first couple of episodes were really effective. I almost shat my pants when we first see the that über-sized titan behind Eren atop the wall. God, it was good. But now, I'm bored. Sorry. Glad it's almost over. I'm glad people enjoy it, but there's so many other shows they should see before this one.

Score: 2,5/5


How can you even watch this series when it's not even licensed in Norway? Are you using a Proxy or something?

Many of us watching Chihayafuru had the exact same impression of the passage of time. "Where did it go?" ^^

I've flipped through Kodansha's English translation of the AoT manga, and was relatively bored by it, so I haven't give the anime a single glance.

I have a backlog of 100+ shows. I do NOT bother with simulcasts since I'm trying to get down to 50 shows. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Like I'll get below 50 shows anytime soon! I will get around to Attack on Titan someday--in the future. Pretty much unless a show is about to get taken down, I work on what's been in my queue the longest and work my way forward.

Watched the first episode. Wasn't impressed. Figure I'll try it again when some of the hype dies down. I think I'll like it, but I think I'm too surrounded by it right now. I'll wait. Try to dismiss some of the massive hype, and watch it with a more unprejudiced eye later.

glad I'm not the only one who thinks like this. honestly, the show stopped being interesting pretty much right after that scene where titan eren was moving the boulder, and there was that awesome song.. ever since then, this show has done nothing but bored me to death. I'm still watching it, waiting for it to get interesting again, but I don't really see it happening. since there're only 2 episodes left, I might as well at least finish watching it.

In truth the show does have some things that more than annoy me a little (like the tendency to overemphasize those background songs during some of the action scenes - God sometimes I wish they'd tone it down a notch, it looks cheesy to me).

But even so I keep sticking with the show because its pros definitely outweigh its flaws. For one thing it has truly mastered the art of the cliffhanger. I haven't felt this way about keeping up with a show and guessing what would happen next since watching "Code Geass" years ago. And as one reviewer mentioned before, it really does well in tapping into that primal fear of losing your place on the food chain. There are plenty of "War is Hell" kinds of stories out there, but few portray that sense of fear soldiers get when going into battle the way this one does.

Not one of my all time favs, but definitely a show I don't hesitate to recommend. And at least I enjoy it a lot more than TTGL or Eva, neither of which for the life of me no matter how hard I try I could ever figure out what all the fuss was about for those shows (cue the stupid fanboy nerd raging). My taste in anime are probably way different than the typical Shounen Jump loving anime fan, but the fact I still like AoT should say something about its overall appeal.

And yeah I also sometimes come across anime fans who still haven't gotten from under the proverbial boulder & watched AoT yet. But I think it's mostly because I lately find myself coming across this new type of supposed anime "fan", who for some dumb reason or another insist they "only watched dubbed anime" & thus don't keep up with the latest stuff. I enjoy a good dub when it's done right & all, but to limit oneself to only watching the tiny bit of anime that's been localized and not even giving something a chance just because it doesn't have English audio is insane. It's safe to say we don't run into those types here on CR obviously (I don't think), but honestly those types of fans annoy me way more than the sub only fans.

Either that or the anime fans who like this kind of anime & haven't checked it out yet are the ones who wait for a show to finish its run rather that watch one episode a week. Which is another thing that makes me roll my eyes & shake my head when I hear it, but oh well. Their loss. OK, rant over.

These two folks nailed it. I'd give some parts of the series 2/5 and some 3/5, so the 2.5 is spot on. Comedy arcs of ReBorn have more feel and action than AoT has most of the time. Too much HYPE, can be a bad thing.
