so i started reading the manga... hooo boy... not sure whether the anime is going to censor some of this or whether they'll go the elfen lied route. At least when you read it in manga form it's just black and white, no red >_>

The manga really is still in the state of explaining everything and developing the characters more in my opinion. They have present events going on while they explain everything though. I love the plot twists that they have though, they never fail to deliver.

ep 3,

Well, MC has at least become tolerable now, still not quite likable. However, the supporting cast is helping make up for it (potato girl ftw :) )

I actually like the MC quite a lot. At least he's not one of those pathetic characters that don't really have the will to do shit unless people force them to. :up:
Episode three was really good as any other so far.

I never thought I would laugh at this show, but POTATO GIRL. Potato girl is the best character.

Please don't kill potato girl. Please don't kill potato girl. Please don't kill potato girl. Please don't kill potato girl. Please don't kill potato girl. Please don't kill potato girl. ><

Their 3D movement gear has got to be the coolest gadgets since swords themselves. Whoever came up with that idea is genius.

I gotta say, I was NOT expecting this series to have humor of any kind. It was almost unfitting. But nonetheless enjoyable. Didn't want to see Eren look like a noob but I guess it build character. Still not sure if Misaka likes him or is just protective.
Almost as hard as fighting a Holy Paladin.

Great, I already wince every time the Titans eat people. If they started adding crunching sounds or anymore to that, I might not be able to handle it. :|

Just finished catching up to the manga, I think I spent 10+ hours reading it all =p There is no way this anime is going to finish the story. Feels like the story is around the mid way point right now. Just like with Claymore, it'll come down to two option:

A. Japan likes the anime so the anime stays canon with the manga then stops for a season 2 in a couple of years.

B. Japan doesn't like the anime, it's not making money, so they canon until a certain point to where the manga is currently at, then do an anime original ending.

I have to say I really like how fleshed out these side characters are. Originally I thought I would like Mikasa the most but instead I ended up liking some of Eren's trainee squadmates a lot more when they reveal some backstory such as

Annie
who is my favourite.

ep4 is out. I love how they add english rock songs to the anime. They probably got the idea that music like that can work after Metal Gear Rising =p

ep 4

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU! why did it have to end on a cliffhanger like that. I'm swore to hold off on reading the manga until I finished the anime but it's getting really difficult now. really am curious about the backstory behind the titans, hope it's well explained

edit: ok, I cheated and read a couple chapters ahead in the manga, and now there's even more unanswered questions lol, guess i'll just catch up with the manga at this point, but this series is seriously epic
