Now that you're firmly there

Spoiler:

Have the second-half intro of Season 1



(And I guess outro 1 and outro 2 if you haven't seen them)

manga 21-26:

-Marco was the only one of the named characters who died? I lost track of who was who (not having much intro to them before the fight, plus characters are harder to tell apart in the manga), but it felt like half of them died!

Spoiler:

I don't even know, I still don't have the names straight of the surviving characters <.<


Spoiler:

-Irvine's speech to the Scouting legion potentials doesn't hold back on the grim reality. Got to respect that.

This is the guy, right here.

I'd heard the first ending, but they're all good. I can't think of another series where I actively liked the first four intro/ending songs, usually if I like the intros I hate the ending and vice versa. The second ending's my least favourite, though.

Manga ch 27-29:

-Ooh, secret traitor titan-humans among the ranks!
-Levi telling the titan she's like him. Iiinteresting.
-titan scream
-the smelling guy can smell titans?!? In that case, does he sniff people when he meets them to see if they're a secret titan? Can't work, or they'd have the traitor(s) already.
-they're eating her?? That's some pretty horrifying dedication just to not get captured Surprised
-The whole experienced bunch dead, man that titan is tough.
-Eren-titan trying to talk
-the one-on-one titan fight is actually kind of boring, I was a little relieved when the female smashed Eren's head in two and horrifyingly elongated her jaw to rip his flesh open (Uh-oh), before that it was multiple pages where it didn't feel like there was any particular stake or risk or even goal.
-oh shit, and then Mikasa arrives too late to save him and I feel guilty! (Uh-oh again) But tbh, I'm not really worried he's dead, at this point it feels like he's got protagonist protection powers in a sliiiightly suspension of disbelief-breaking way (though I also wouldn't be that surprised if they did kill him off at some point to shake us out of complacency)

manga 30-34:

-In some shots, Mikasa and Levi are hard to tell apart because they both look so unimpressed all the time Laughing
-Ew, titan spit  Ewwww!
-was the titan crying??
-kids hero-worshipping the scouts like Eren did, and he looks away
-Annie's not looking so good
-okay, so she feels like a coward, I'm still with Eren that 'frail' is not really a word Annie can use
-Annie's the traitor Sad
-Everyone else is still trying to talk things out and and Mikasa just goes ahead and draws her sword, ice-cold as always.
-Annie's creepy titan smile
-man, a titan fight in the middle of the city's not going to do wonders for morale or Eren's safety
-Annie is waaaay better at titaning than Eren Disapproving
-this panel is nice, the shadows on their faces
-I bet Armin suggested the plan putting him and Mikasa at risk because he knew it would provoke Eren to transform
-Annie is very calm and collected as a titan, I wonder if that's why she looks more like a normal human, not misshapen or oddly proportioned like little titans, or even with the huge, rage-grin and glowey eyes like Eren has
-Fucking badass
-WALL TITAN  Run in circles flail
-The religious zealots know something, that's unusual
-It's kind of hard to believe that this information could be hidden, given that the wall wasn't built that long ago and would have been a massive, humanity-spanning project.
-Hanji's speech/threats to the priest guy were pretty damn good, even if they didn't work

Exciting developments! And now I'm caught up to this season, whew!

Episode 27

Spoiler:

- Pixis doesn't even panic when hearing that the Titans broke through Wall Rose. Seemed just mildly intrigued
- Mikasa adjusting Eren's cloakkkkkkk dat protector waifu <3
- Sasha eats food like Titans eat people
- "Hrmmm, is Sasha's backstory going anywh- OH GOD WHAT THE FUCK"
- That was the worst thing so far, walking in on a smaller Titan eating an old lady while a kid is sitting there trying not to watch. Like, Berserk-level gross, GOD
- YEAHHHHH STABS THE TITAN IN THE EYE
- And slips through and gets away awriiiight
- wtffff a Titan that can't walk or crawl is somehow on Conny's house. Are they being catapulted over the wall or somehow air-dropped in?

I forgot if I said this for Episode 26, but the new season outro was spooky as FUCK the first time, and was no less creepy the second.

E26:

-This intro music has more of a heroic feel, it's alright, but I preferred the angrier, more visceral feel of the previous ones.
-Hanji threatening the priest was cooler in the manga
-o-one of the titans in the swarm is sashaying like a runway model Shocked
-What the hell? Why are these titans so weird?? I don't know whether to laugh or shudder
-What's with Mikasa
-Levi in the manga looks unimpressed; Levi in the anime looks like he's been running on caffeine and no sleep for a week and if he tried to manifest an emotion it might knock him unconscious.
-Oh no, the horse! 6-year-old me just ran off crying Sad
-It talks?! It gives orders?!? It's studying fighting gear?!?
-That was a particularly gruesome death
-That ending music/animation Shudder

Spoiler:

I found it particularly interesting that both with the talking Titan in the forest from before and now this one, regular Titans appear to be able to resist their natures but can't quite overcome it, even if being ordered by a (what I'm assuming is) a human Titan


Spoiler:

-That ending music/animation Shudder

Isn't it the freakiest Shudder

E27:

-Oh no, Hanji made some kind of discovery and no one else knows, she's doomed!  Sad
-that still scene when Sasha enters the village, only the backside of a Titan visible through a door and the sound of chewing in the silence Shudder
-And then the way she just walks slowly through the room to get the child, as if everything's normal, and then that whispered "sorry" to the woman being eaten
-Ymir was a cadet with them??!? But didn't the sidestory with the titan that said that name happen before their time? Maybe it didn't? It can't be just coincidence!
-Stabbing the arrow straight into its eye to be sure she doesn't miss Shiny/thrilled
-I didn't think she was going to make it out of there. Whew.
-Her dad is proud Happy tears
-Someone's throwing titans?? Who or whatever's behind the titans is trying out some weird new things this season.  

Between this and Berserk, I am not going to be sleeping well this season Uh-oh

Ep 28

Spoiler:

- As soon as they mentioned no blood I was like "awww shit, the Titans ARE the people from the village"
- AND THEN ONE SPOKE TO CONNIE
- FUCK, trotting through the pitch-black Neutral
- And yup, they didn't find a hole in the wall
- Huh, that plan to patch the Wall using Eren, assuming he can create Titan-crystal
- They were told to monitor the blonde one?
- Ymir with an evil look, how does she fucking play into this, especially with that Titan that spoke her name?
- TITANS IN THE DARK NOPE
- The Beast Titan climbing the wallllll wtf
- God, that horseriding in the field with torches with the full moon in the air looked so cool

Here are my thoughts about Attack on Titan:

-Was pirating some King of the Hill a couple years ago and it had a JustAnimeDubbed.tv watermark
-Went to JustAnimeDubbed.tv and they had a little IRC sidebar
-Went in the IRC and said "King of the Hill isn't anime"
-Got a link to this image in reply
-That was my only exposure to Attack on Titan 2013-2017, saw every Titan as Bill the whole time I was watching it

eps 1-14:

Watched about half the first season, doooon't think I'm going to finish it. Couldn't get into any of the characters, and while I am vaguely curious about the Titans' origin story, it's not enough curiosity to be invested in the plot. Eren's vengeful rage was like "meh, he's no Gatsoo" and nobody else had much of a character at all. I liked Mikasa's peaceful resignation to certain death in one of the early episodes, I thought that was pretty badass, but then she decided to keep fighting and lost my attention. Uhhhmm what else was there? Armin's speech was fine, I liked Potato Girl, I liked the scientist who was around for like 1 episode, but nothing grabbed me.

I did get some good chuckles out of some of the Titan attacks (you're supposed to laugh, right? It's like... physical comedy, right? Uh-oh) and totally enjoyed every shot the Titans were in, especially peeping in the windows. If somebody made a supercut of this show that was just all the sequences of the Titans wandering around grinning and falling down and bumping into shit, I'd watch the heck out of that. The rest, ehhhhhh sorry y'all I just couldn't make myself care Shrug

EDIT: No, I take it back, there was another thing I liked: the fake German names. Braus and Arlert and Zackly and DOT PIXIS, Japanese pseudo-European words are the best thing rofl

Spoiler:

Yeah, it does start to grab you more and more as you go on, but the characters are never going to be a strong point, it's more the general thrill of action and the horribleness of the situation than something meaningful or emotionally engaging in a deeper way.

Spoiler:

I did get some good chuckles out of some of the Titan attacks (you're supposed to laugh, right? It's like... physical comedy, right? Uh-oh)

Oh god, I'm so relieved it's not just me!

YES! These are almost as wonderful as the tea-making instruction cards I found in a Chinese tea shop that were apparently translated into English by Google Translate's less talented cousin. I laugh until I cry every time I read them.

I might finish the season someday if I have literally nothing else to do, like I'm all out of pocket change to sort. Razz Or if y'all promise it gets way more interesting/there's a big payoff. Otherwise, there's always Berserk for horror thrillz.

I don't understand why bad translations are one of the funniest things on earth but they really are. DO NOT scan some of those instruction cards and post them here, DON'T DO IT

FUCK YOU, DON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

Spoiler:




The bottom left is the best one. I highly recommend reading it out loud, speaking louder and faster the stranger it gets. My favourite parts:
-(Guitar a tight re-shape the tea is a)
-This is a bubble
-Fallen beauty, "with Spring Harbour" reputation [that's totally a euphemism for "prostitute," right?]

Character-wise it doesn't get better, even though my favourite character, and probably the most interesting character are both more heavily featured in the next arc. It's really more that in this part, you learn that there's more going on than just "freaky giants are trying to eat us all" and you also get to see the humans who really know what the fuck they're doing when fighting these things instead of all the cannon-fodder from the first few arcs.

I put "fucking do it" through English-to-Simple-Chinese google translation, and then put the result back through Simple-Chinese-to-English-translation and it came out "Fucking Done It."

Then I went to post and Enail had already done it. Cool

-Mayfair both concept flowers, sniffed Flower, the fragrance.
-Do not beboil the water
-Cheek teeth aroma, taste endless. [this is getting heady]
-God I fucking lost it at "this is a bubble"

Spoiler:

Erwin is my favourite, the blonde-haired leader of the scout-corps, but I can't really tell you why he's my favourite for where you are because when I was there, I wasn't sure what to make of him yet. Most interesting characters is probably Levi/the black haired guy who's too cool for school.

Simultaneously one of the outright manliest anime things you'll ever see, and juuust fucked up x_x

Spoiler:

- The fucking child-Titans ripping each other's ears off, fuuuuck
- Ymir shutting down Conny speculating on what happened to his village
- And she read old Earth languages that they no longer use. No way she's not part of the conspiracy
- God, every single battle scene with the ODM gear around the tower was just spectacular.
- Reiner opening the door and it just smiles at him FUCK
- Reiner PTSDing about his friend saving his life too :/
- REINER ALPHA AS FUCK. Pushes Connie out of the way, PUSHES THE TITAN'S JAW OUT OF THE WAY, LIFTS IT THE FUCK UP AND HAULS IT UP THE STAIRS AND THREATENS TO JUMP OUT THE WINDOW WITH IT[/i]
- Christa rips off part of skirt, "I'm going to marry her" rofl rofl rofl
- Fucking Beast Titan lobbing boulders and setting tactics Neutral
- That guy not getting his last drink while the spooky Titan looks in on the window, and the woman, missing a leg, screaming about how "she won't do it again" while it eats her, this was massively fucked up
- YMIR
- IS
- A
- TITAN
- SHE'S GOT TO BE PART OF THE CONSPIRACY
- Also I'm gonna say Christa's father is the Armoured Titan/part of the conspiracy.
- Also Also it was kind of occurring to me... if normal people can be turned into Titans, then maybe the Titans in the wall are the people who find things out they shouldn't and then get disappeared. There was that one tl;dr story in the last episode of Season 1 with the commercial eye-catcher where a digger discovered that the walls run under the floor too, and he disappeared eventually.
