I didn't see a thread, so I thought I would pioneer one.

Shingeki no Kyojin is the story of a settlement that lives in fear of onslaughts of giants, known as titans. The music is excellent, the story compelling, and, dammit, they can't make the episodes fast enough.

Opinions? Theories? General Discussion?

I liked it more when it had penguins
ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

What do they say at the beginning, though? It sounds like "With the Pegasus and bees and the Jaegar". Whatever it is, it sounds like a tasty cocktail.

...at least I got one word right. I can generally identify and translate German with ease (read: Asuka). I just can't hear "Sie sind das Essen" in the opening. My ears must be broken.

I was really pleasantly surprised by the show when I watched it. I've also been watching just moe/SoL stuff for the past month or so, so it's a nice change of pace :lol:

On a related topic, can anyone recommend any shows similar to Shingeki no Kyojin? Very well made action, interesting plot, somewhat gritty/dark?

If you haven't seen Madoka Magicka, do so. It's dark, but Moe at the same time. It works well.

Heard about this through Viz, since they also publish Jormungand. For some reason I thought Attack on Titan was sci fi and set on Mars and wasn't really grabbed by the description. Then decided to check out Ep. 1... :tongue:

Look guys, you can't just slap SnK's OP onto everything. :shifty:

This series is awesome and the real action hasn't even quite begun yet. Little wonder, the director is the guy who made Death Note.
