    i don't get it at all
    is it a horror story or is it a moral story. is the reason i don't get it is because it not stories i was told or is it that they don't translate it very well to TV. or is it that these are original story and they just suck at it. i guess i will never know because i am just done i don't get it . it has been two episodes and in a season of attack of titans i don't have time to waste so i'm out
