I watched attack on titan up to episode 5 and didn't really get into it. Thought the plot was too comical and didn't really like the whole feel of it. 6 months later(my sister insisted I give it another go) and I confess it was a good show. I still think the story is a little strange, but I still like it and love the animation. My biggest problem is once I get attached to characters, they get eaten and I don't even have time to remember there names. I can hardly remember any names from the show. I would put the show on the lower numbers of my top 20 anime's, what did you guys think of the show(no spoilers please )?

There aren't really any spoilers, at least not from the first season, considering it's been out for God knows how long. Anybody who hasn't seen it, it's their own fault.
So anyway, these two parts had to be the most depressing part for me.

Warning, the following is pretty gruesome

It was the emotional Michael Bay of anime series.

Unfortunately I figured out "the trick" early on. Once you're exposed to a character who gets a face and a name and nothing else - they're not gonna be around too long. After realizing that, I became partially desensitized to their deaths because I knew it was coming.

More good than bad, although I'd probably give it a lower score now than right after I finished it.

I liked that most of the characters (with the exception of the leads) were predominantly defined by their relationships, not by a generic archetype. The animation quality could fluctuate wildly though, in terms of how good something looked.

Warning: Spoilers for the later episodes, I think 16-25? Thereabouts.

I think that was largely due to there being 70+ different studios contributing work to this project, though.

That's how I started to feel. Still, I like The Walking Dead with giants vibe I get from the show (although, for the reasons you've already stated, the deaths tend to be more emotional in The Walking Dead). It's pretty entertaining, and the sense of danger is real, which isn't the case with a lot of anime that shy away from killing off characters.

I thought that it was very realistic. Not the fact that there is Huge Titans. Just thought the emotions that the people were going through at the time was so real. You could almost feel the fear they went through and also all of the Hate for the titans. They played with the human emotions throughout the whole series and got a lot of attention for it.

AOT delivers a variety of things I enjoy from anime (e.g. great character design, a high level of world-building, strong female characters, etc.), but what it does best, IMO, is ratchet up the intensity of a situation to the point that I am literally sitting on the edge of my chair waiting for events to explode. And they do.

I love seeing anime elitists that don't give popular shows a chance get hit in the face with a brick after watching shows like AoT.

I can remember all the characters name... Even "Nac Tius" who died when Trost invasion.
The most thing I love is, your favorite character has no guarantee to live. We don't know if he or she will die or not...
Like "Petra", I never though she would die...

It's a solid 7/10 from me.

Too many flaws and too much reliance on shock value to be truly great, however I won't say I wasn't excited for the episode each and every week. Pacing issues aside, I did think the plot was quite interesting and political games going on behind the scene added a nice layer of intrigue.

A shame that Mikasa and Eren didn't get more characterization, as well.

They always clean everything up for the home video releases, so I usually wait for those to judge. Also (although I'm sure you realized this by now),
