Completely agree! I just finished catching up with the manga :shock: I want the next chapter now!

I love the way the anime is adapting the series though. It changed the story around to be chronological and the animation continues to amaze me (not to mention I absolutely love the opening song)

not going to work, with all the crap that's going to be coming out in the next few eps I would have eventually given in and read it anyway. I can't believe only 1 chapter comes out a month for this series. The author throws curve balls every other chapter with new developments and theories on what the hell is going on.

Is this seriously his first manga? can't find any others drawn by him. If so it's an amazing debut

^ they'll give in when they see the end of the next ep, if I'm right in guessing at what point the next episode will end =)

I'm also trying really hard to resist...it's really difficult. This show so far though has been way better than I was expecting it to be, awesome stuff.

Quite an awesome show we got here. I'm not that hooked, but it entertains me a lot.

The manga is really great, however I have a feeling they're going to have to make an anime ending because even if they made a second season, they would catch up with the manga pretty quickly. This is the problem the first full metal alchemist anime had, it caught up with the manga really quickly so they basically created an entirely new storyline while taking small elements from the manga as they both progressed.

actual spoilers, you've been warned
Spoiler :
In the manga in an early chapter they go over what they know of the titans. One of their characteristics is they don't need to eat at all, they only seem to eat people because they're driven to, or because it's fun. And the titans can't get past the walls without the gigantic one kicking holes through them and it only shows up when they've seen it appear.


the frustrating thing about the manga is that with every question that is answered about what the titans are and where they originated from, a bunch more pop up. going to take forever to find the whole truth.

I think this is THE best series of the season (though I admit I have not checked Suisei no Gargantia yet).
Great universe, great arts, and everytime the animation gets serious (like Sacha in the very end of ep4), it's awesome!

Very surprised no one has commented that this special preview is the best thing about this anime season since Eru Erufu.
