    Default Shingeki no Kyojin General Discussion

    Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)

    Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants.
    Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as one of the city walls is damaged by a 60 meter giant causing a breach in the wall. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as Eren's mother is eaten alive.Unable to save her , Eren vows that he will wipe out every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

    Won the 35th Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shounen Manga.
    This is a great manga and although it is a Shounen, lovers of Gantz are sure to be in for the ride of their lives!! Give it a go if you haven't heard of this before, sadly I have yet to catch up!

    I'm planning to pick this series up soon. I'm not on the bandwagon yet but there's a lot of buzz. I'll pick up the anime at a later time as I still have Robotics;Notes to go through.

    Irwin is a crazy genius. It also shows that, Colossal Titan and Armored Titan are just the tip of the human-Titan faction.

    You around here? Whazzup?

    Things aren't and probably have never been black and white, that's what's great about this whole plot. I can't wait to see where this is going.

    oh. well, i'm around from time to time when I get really bored. also, +1 for the snk thread. i'm getting a bit sick of tumblr.
    other than that, life is quite adventurous. I have moved to LA~

    you know i really do hope they're not gonna make a whole "going back in time" thing. it's just that the first chapter is really suspicious and it's bothering me so much. also, it's kid of the only differnce between the anime and the manga. in the manga there is this small talk about mikasa's hair growing longer. i i didn't take it as important and I thought the title "to you in 2000 years " was basically addressed to the reader.
    on the other hand, in the anime eren is sleeping and he is dreaming of really suspicious stuff. the sees the tower or w/e in which ymir reveals herself as a titan to everyone, some dead ppl and places we don't really recognize and then there is a glimpse of the grinning titan eating his mother. he wakes up in tears etc. what the hell was that. it's clearly established he was dreaming the whole thing. premonition of some sort?
    i don't understand why the anime would be different. we know isayama worked very closely with the animators because there were things he didn't manage to portray in the manga the way he wanted. he'd always be very clear about how he wanted everything to be, why would the first scene stray from the original, i just don't get it. everything else is exactly like the manga what the hell.
