Attack on Titan General

Can we all talk about the woman Eren saw in his flashback for a moment (the one people are apparently calling Geographia)

I have seen some very interesting theories, my favorite being that memories pass down from coordinate to coordinate, thus explaining what Eren’s father said about memories. Maybe that’s what “To You, 2000 Years From Now” meant. The “you” is not the author addressing us, but a previous coordinate addressing Eren (but what really messes with that theory is that titans have only been around for 100 something years but whatever. Perhaps titans have a longer history than we thought).

Another thing I’ve seen is that perhaps Christa was the intended coordinate as maybe the Reiss family held all the coordinates, but something happened where Eren ended up getting it instead. Maybe Eren’s father was going to visit the Reiss family in the beginning of the story? I’ve also seen some mentions that perhaps Eren is remotely related to the Reiss line.

Anyway, who is this woman? Why does she look like Christa (to Eren)? How does this relate to Eren’s titan abilities? And does this tie in to how Eren seemed to see an older Mikasa at the very beginning of the manga but then awoke to a young Mikasa?

I would enjoy the anime a bit more if it wasn’t for people making gif sets that spoil the god damn series in less than an hour.

Not to mention the storyline isn’t really that good, you learn NOTHING about the titans which are really the main focus of the story.

Oh, the animation is also incredibly rushed.

Well, now we have spoiler tags on the site, the gif sets aren’t such a big deal here (they were kind of the reason the spoiler tag was added in the first place). And the series is still ongoing, so we are probably going to find out who the titans really are eventually, can’t play all your twists at once. And about the animation, apparently the DVD releases of the anime fixed alot of the problems. here’s some comparisons.

Sorry for the double post, but I think you should all be aware that this commercial exists:

Well considering pretty much all the dub cast has been announced (besides Eren, who will be unveiled at Anime Boston in a few days), what do you guys think? A few dub clips have been released to give a taster (Although to my knowledge, none include my Berty in them). Here are some of them:

Thoughts?

^ I like to joke around by acting like dubs are for filthy casuals, but in reality I am fine with them. I’ve watched many of my favorite series dubbed. I will probably rewatch it with dubs. These dubs seem quite solid.

on titan is BAD – An analytical video review[/b]

Hey there, I’m new to this forum, but I’m pretty passionate about anime. Specifically the stories that anime can bring us. And i just recently made a video about Attack on Titan, and figured that some of you might be interested.

Despite the title of the video I actually think that SnK is pretty good. It just has some major flaws that make it bad overall in my opinion. (mostly in the story and plot departments).
As you can probably tell from the video length, this is a fairly indepth analysis of the show, and has taken me quite some time to write and produce. Naturally, it’s [b]very spoiler heavy[/b], but only addresses stuff from the animated show itself. It also contains a small amount of personal speculation in parts.

Most of the review is about addressing a lot of the issues with elements of the plot and characterization, and offering alternatives as I go, to invite discussion.

So I’d love it if you guys could give it an earnest watch and let me know what you think. It will be interesting to hear your thoughts on this stuff too, since I’ve basically completely cut myself off from forums and the like in order to write this without copying other peoples thoughts on the show.

Anyway enough of my rambling, here’s the video:

so you’re telling me…

(attack on titan isn’t really my favourite anime though…)

while i agree with the crystal stuff being bullshit and i too couldn’t care less for annie’s pseudo emotional uh look a tear uguu~ crap and all i wanted to see for the entire second part of the first season was the realisation of

but it does make sense not to kill her, although, yeah, it’s pretty weird that eren suddently had that kind of self-control and i was literally shouting at the screen when he had doubts about attacking annie in titan form.

but i actually can have sympathy for eren, i don’t really ahve a problem with his black-and -white world view, neither do i really have a problem with the fact that he was already fucked up in the head as a kid (when rescuing mikasa), and i don’t really have a problem with the titan-shifting, only because it’s basically battlemecha made of flesh and bones, i don’t think that things like that get old when the rest around it is original.

yeah the anime pisses you off a lot and the end is horribly unsatisfying, and the manga continues to do that, giving information away only in little pieces, but the pieces are well portioned enough to keep me interested,
so yeah…

good job on the video though, you really put some work into that and your voice is well recorded (something i hate about commentary in videos is when the voice is recorded bad) adn you certainly thought a lot about the topic.

Actually, there’s a video which accurately sums up my thoughts on the characters:

I highly suggest giving it a watch. Remember, there will be spoilers.

That was a very good video, thanks for posting that.

Honestly, my problem with the series is really just it’s pacing. It’s just too damn slow and sometimes almost nothing happens. I’ve said this a million times though.
The series still is in my top 5 of last year and I continue to read the manga.

Well, as long as this thread’s been reactivated….

Have you guys checked out the dub? I got about five minutes in before turning off. They really stunk it up this time around.

Oh jeez. Who did they get and why didn’t they get anyone better?

You’d think with all the money this thing has made they could afford to hire some decent people.

Funimation usually does great dubs. I didn’t think it was terrible, but they definitely could have done better.

I thought the dub was fine. I especially liked sasha, but maybe that’s because it was Ashly Burch playing her. The first few episodes were a bit worse because they were trying to do kid voices, but it got better.

Maybe they’re slowly realizing that people just watch the shows with subs when they premiere because the internet exists, so they don’t really care anymore.

I think what they need to do is a direct translation and get actors that actually sound like their Japanese counterparts. I think it would sound better that way.

Interesting to see discussion brought back to the thread. Personally I’ve lost my interest in following dubs, but I’m just fine with the original dub. I have noticed that Funimation has been importing anime at a much faster pace than they did a few years ago. I mean, the dub for AoT came out just over a year after the anime started, and a dub for Kill la Kill is already in the works when that just ended a couple months ago. It’s interesting to see the pacing for this stuff increase.

So, as I have joined college this past year I have made my own little circle of friends who like anime among other things. As I learned throughout the year it turned out none of them liked AoT at all. And they really don’t like the fandom (particularly the cosplay nazis, which is the only part of the fandom I’ve noticed as particularly rotten). And I have one friend in particular who loves to say that she doesn’t like the show and explain why basically any chance she can get, which can be quite grating at times. But I have won the battle today, gentlemen! (and ladies) One of my friends who previously saw the first 3 episodes and found no interest watched the series with her brother in the last week or so and she enjoys the show now, too! It’s nice to finally have someone on my side of the battlefield when it comes to this show.

Yeah, I totally know what you mean. Thankfully, I’m surrounded by non-anime fans (some of which are starting to get into anime through the show), and those I know who are anime fans love the show as much as I do. On the internet however, it’s suddenly become the cancer that is killing anime. I can remember joking in the unpopular opinion general, after someone mentioned that their unpopular opinion was not liking AoT, that the real unpopular opinion is actually liking it. It’s really a case of the show being not being worth the hype for most people. I feel that it’s not because the show is bad, but it’s just it’s been hyped up as the best thing. I hope the inevitable season 2 brings back more fans when that comes to pass.
