Does Anyone Else Watch Attack on Titan?

    I want to write a bit about my thoughts on the story and characters, and how something with themes like it could not possibly be made in the west.

    Unfortunately to discuss it in any depth would spoil a lot of the story, and it's one of those shows where the scope keeps changing as more things are revealed so spoilers actually do ruin the impact of a lot of pivotal arcs.

    HTS watches dat and just glancing at the show when I walk by I am probably gonna have to check it out, the art style is pretty freaky stuff

    reminds me of the terror you feel in the depths of meth psychosis

    watch it from the beginning if you do


    starts out as a relatively simple monster story; the last city surrounded by walls that's constantly under attack from massive goofy 'titans' (the creator apparently modeled them on a guy who came into a coffee shop he once worked at, drunk, naked, rambling and swinging at people), but as time goes on they start to realise that there's more out there beyond the walls and that there's more to the titans than giant dickless monsters.

    in short, it's about what you might do if you spend your whole life with a boot on your neck and you're finally able to pry it off

    I have never had any interest in watching anime but after hearing the plot I am very interested in watching it. I'll just avoid this thread

    My buddy has been trying to get me to watch an anime called Akira that he swears by. I asked him what he thought of attack on titan and he said it was OK. He's really into 80s movies and AoT seems to have that sort of feel and theme so im surprised he wasn't super into it. I'm gonna start watching AoT tn while pretending my covid is still debilitating

    Akira is a movie. it's good, but hard to follow. it's mostly famous because it's the first time an anime got the budget of a major film.

    AoT is a series, should be 6 seasons in total, 5 just finished. make sure you at least watch to the end of season 2 if you're not sure about it at first

    Why don't the titans have dicks? Is that explained later? How do they reproduce? How did they actually come there, WHEN WILL THIS ALL BE REVEALED?

    You should watch Akira. My phone cover was of the pill and I have these good for health bad for education patches to stick on clothes, made virtual rooms inspired by it. The manga is great too.

    I kinda gave up on AoT during Season 3. I think I started watching it cold after a long hiatus from watching Season 2 and I felt kinda lost. When The Final Season Part 2 was just starting I decided to binge the whole series and then watched it every week as it aired. Good shit.

    It's seriously making me rethink anime as a genre altogether.
