Attack on Titan

Post by bomaye on Tue Feb 28, 2017 9:54 pm

Apparently next anime season in April will be the second season/return of Attack on Titan. I haven't watched it, or read it, or really know anything about it (except someone already spoiled what sounds like a big moment to me, and that the series somehow involves fighting giant flesh people or something). This has been one of those super popular series that's transcended the medium, so like I did with Berserk I'm gonna catch up on it beforehand. I plan to watch 1 episode per day at least in March, there's 25 episodes in the first season. I don't have a sales pitch because I just don't know anything about it, I could end up hating it.

Handy-dandy list of chapters and episodes that correspond to each other for anyone who hasn't seen it yet but wants to get on board too. Also for the enjoyment of people who've already seen it.

(I guess there's movies and OVAs too, but those will be for later if I do them)

Ep 1

Spoiler:

- Lot of set-up to take in. Humanity lives in a giant walled area, which is further separated by three walls. Outside the walls are giant cannibals. Guys who fight like spider-man go outside the walls to try to find something that can do anything against them, but consistently fail.
- Bruuuuutal @ Moses
- Eren's the idealism, Mikasa's the actual fighting talent?
- Bruuuuutal @ the Titans getting in and Eren's mother :/

Not much to emotionally latch onto yet. Not sure this'll be "one of those" but seems more like it'll be a spectacle-type show

Episode 2 is definitely more interesting

Spoiler:

- That's fuuuuucked, the place where they lived was basically a protrusion out of the wall to lure Titans in. They're bait to cut down on the difficulty of defending everywhere
- Musicccccc
- The Titan starts running and "OH FUUUUUCKKK"
- Eren savagely hating on the Titans and promising to kill them all Nod
- Eren's father conducting creepy experiments or something (he was a doctor) and now he has to get back to his house and find out what was in the basement
- Things sure got bleak quickly in this. Ten thousand dead after the wall fell, and another 250 000 dead after they basically sent hordes of people out to die against the Titans to help with resource shortages :/
- Dat outroooo

I started watching this but found it strangely manipulative. I can't put my finger on exactly what caused that feeling.

There was another series later that gave me the exact same feeling: Akame ga Kill.

I watched up to episode 6 or 7 of Attack on Titan.

I'll let you know if I see what you saw around 6-7

Ep 3

Spoiler:

- Potato Girl x)
- Mikasa having turned super-kawaiiiiii~ (dem lips Lovestruck)
- I'm never looking out the window again after that guy's story O_O
- So Eren's belt was broken and he might have more talent than the rest of them because he stayed a bit steady on a broken belt
- Trainer-san knows Eren's father silent
- I wonder, since the belt was broken in a way that trainer-san hasn't seen before, if he it was sabotaged on purpose by Armin or Mikasa to keep Eren out of being a soldier

- Mikasa feeding her x)
- Trainer-san always creeping outside x)
- Nice speech by Eren about not joining the MPs
- Oh nooooo he fucking jinxed it

OH, there it is

Ep 5

Spoiler:

- WHAT HOW DID THE TITAN DISAPPEAR
- Dude survived the Colossal Titan
- Fuuuuck that Marquis Bart guy, but niiice at Pixis taking his drink, admitting he throws the chess match every time, and going for it
- Man, the Titans are overpowered.
- The Aberrant eating the guy and then CHARGE AND THEN TAKES OFF HIS LEG AND BATS THEM OUT OF THE AIR HOLY FUCK
- EREN THAT WAS FUCKING BRUTAL
- But now it's like... why did we spend all that time with the key and setting up the story with him as your classic shonen hero? Kinda killed off the best character way too early :/

Ep 6

Ehhhhh

Spoiler:

- Mikasa being a badass at the beginning was good, and the backstory is suitably rough, but why show us this now after Eren's already dead?
- I wonder if the "weak point" is some kind of cooling unit? Titans seem to burn up as they die

I'm gonna keep watching because I like it, but I don't love it, quite yet, I'm doing that thing where I think of ways of doing things that would've been better. I'll pick up doing episode stuff if the show picks up at some point.

bomaye: It was no specific plot event. It was the general feeling I got from the show.

I'm considering picking it up again when I have the time.

Ep 10

Spoiler:

- Armin with the epic heart salute, for the glory of humanity ;_;>
- Of course Eren will do it :]
- So with Eren being able to become a titan... that might mean the other special Titans are humans too. The Colossal and Armored Titan both showed intelligence, and Eren's father figuring it out means someone else probably figured it out at some point. Might be a human power grab somehow

Spoiler:

- Politicssss
- I like how the humans, guards, and everyone keep forgetting that they're mouthing off a guy who can turn into a Titan
- The scar on Mikasa = only Eren can hurt her silent
- Levi's pretty savage, both in beating up Eren to show he's got control and in telling the inner-wall merchants and politicians to go fuck themselves
- The preview said that it sounds like the Survery Corps has a more revolutionary mindset... could one of them be the Colossal or Armored Titans? silent

GOD

Spoiler:

- The way the female Titan just swats people out of the air or flings them around like a yoyo is BRUTAL
- They enter the forest and the weird orders, I keep thinking Erwin is setting up to massacre everyone
- But then the orders kind of make sense too, fight the Female Titan in an enclosed setting with room for maneuver gear and use the outer flanks to draw the extra Titans and keep them out.
- Dat tension, what is Levi doing silent

Spoiler:

- Levi's sadism ruins everything
- Oh wow, the Female Titan ordered the regular Titans to eat it
- WELP IT's AMONG THEM
- The Female Titan overrode the base instincts of regular Titans.... does that mean Eren can do it too? Was that why they were eating his Rogue Titan form back in Trost?
