I feel like AoT was 7.5/8-out-of-10.

If you're just getting into anime and want action and world-building, this is for you.

Is it worth the hype? I say no, but with the Internet and the ability for things to spread so quickly through so many mediums, stories get exaggerated and hardly anything gets rated accurately, anymore.

The fact it was so hyped up does add credence to the chance you'll like it, though, unless action and the occasional gore aren't your thing.

I personally thought it was a really good anime, not because of the hype train, but because I sincerely like it. If all of the sudden everybody in this planet hated AOT, I would still like it. I don't like stuff just because it's popular or unpopular.

I have not seen Code Geass, and it doesn't look interesting to me, but I'll watch it someday. Steins;Gate is pretty awesome! I really like the animation style they use in AoT, and well I also really like the setting and plot.

9/10 for me.

It's, ok, chock-full of suspense and surprise. The problem I had with it is that character development was nearly non-existent.

A great story mixed with forgettable, poorly developed characters that don't stand out. I can't help but to think how much more would I enjoy AoT if it had great characters. So far, Armin is the only character that I can say is a "good" character. To me it's obviously he's the most well developed character over the course of the series.

So basically, I love the story. The characters on the other hand, not so much.

I enjoyed the beginning of the anime and the first like 12 episodes. The downsides i see are that the plot isn't that strong. It's the premise that humanity is not the highest piece of the food chain and the Titans eat them. It's average at best but I didn't mind that so much. The biggest two downsides imo was the characters and the speed of plot progression. The characters have the potential to be so much and have a big backstory to them and become lead characters but die one after the other, the only characters who will live are probably Eren, Mikasa, and Armin. The worse part is the speed at which the plot progresses. The pace is probably the slowest i've ever seen in an anime, with the beginning childhood arc of everyone leaving the outer wall to take about 3 episodes which could have taken 1, and that's not that the half of it. One of the main plot points of the whole series is that they find the basement of Eren's house. The manga which began in 2009 and has 13 volumes and they STILL haven't found the basement. This especially was one of the prime reasons why I dropped the show halfway through. All in all I do not believe it is a very good anime and I think it was way too overrated.

9/10 anime. people who hate on it for having generic characters are just looking for something to nitpick on. AoT is the most suspenseful anime ive ever seen and I found it to be very unpredictable. Maybe bc its the first shounen anime ive ever seen, idk.

If it was bad it wouldn't be hyped. There must be a reason why it's so goddamn popular and you're just another anti-hype. The people who hate AoT for being hyped and popular is like those virgin males who hate One Direction cuz million of teenage girls love them.


popularity =/= quality, such as the aforementioned One Direction. just because something is hyped doesn't mean it's good. also, just because something is popular does not mean it's bad, either. people just need to not listen to hype, and just go by what they like.

Attack on Titan didn't even have a real ending... cause the manga is still ongoing. So many unanswered questions. I thought it was good but wayyyy overhyped.

Wow, I really like that one sentence synopsis. I think I'll use it from now on.

I haven't seen Steins;Gate but in my opinion Code Geass was just another half decent mecha anime from Sunrise. I do not think it deserves to be held up any higher than Attack On Titan.

Does anyone know when Funimation will be releasing or letting pre orders be placed on Part 2 of AoT?
