I'm assuming you mean when I originally watched the sub? Or is this a dub reaction thread?

Wow, first episode was really interesting. It's funny how some series just grab you from the get go. Ever since I read the synopsis I've been wanting to see this and it definitely didn't disappoint.



No. Im asking first time Attack on Titan viewers what they thought like the OP said.

I watched AoT a week ago for the first time. Honestly, from the very first impressions with absolutely no knowledge on the anime itself before watching, it doesn't seem attractive. The name itself, "Attack on Titan" sounds like that movie Clash of the Titans, which let's say, wasn't the greatest.

However, I only started watching anime this year and my friend kept recommending this anime to me so I guess it couldn't be helped. I watched the first episode at like 11pm last saturday, which is totally a mistake, and watched the whole 25 episodes in one sitting. I lost so much sleep because it was so damn amazing. I really enjoyed the intense atmosphere and the non-existent use of comedy. From my limited experience in anime, Attack on Titan is probably the greatest anime of all time, but who am I to say.. lol.

It's funny how rare this opinion seems to be on the CR forums. I guess people feel like independent thinkers when they say that AoT is meh (because it's hugely popular), and feel like sheep when they say it's awesome (for the same reasons), so you end up with the minority being more outspoken.

I found that the first episode had a great pull-factor to it, and saw the next three just afterwards. Very engaging and watchable stuff. I probably benefited from being isolated from all of the raving and so didn't approach it with any expectations, which is always for the best. Unlimited praise for something shouldn't be as much of a turn-off as it seems to be.
