The first part of the series is mostly action, awesome action but action. the second part of the series is where it slows down for character interactions.......it has a few issues with pacing cause that will be kind jarring when we get to season 2.

Are there any reviews/impressions of the first movie out yet? I am mostly curious about the pace and how much content they decided to cut. If it's anything like the first 2 Madoka movies, these films will turn out to be amazing.

Well so far it sold only 1/4th of Madoka's movie opening even though it aired in twice as many cinemas.

That Manlet OVA is going to sell millions though.

Frankly I don't see any reason to read or watch SnK if not for Levi. Definitely my favorite manlet at the moment.

There's a reason I said it's subtle. Granted, a lot of it won't resonate if you haven't read the manga and a lot of it you'll only retroactively recognize.

Not sure if it's very relevant, but i stopped watching the anime at around episode 11. I just lost interest one day and didn't care enought to see what happened after. Never felt like checking the manga either.

One thing that i remember actively turning me off was when Mikasa started going all lovey-dovey/blushing around Eren. Since at first i took their relationship as a purely (and idealized) filial one, it was kind of a turn-off to see the author or anime taking it to a direction i wasn't too happy or comfortable with. The fact i have an older sister myself didn't help matters either.

Plot  SPOILER: Show
Did you ever get to the episode where you learn that Mikasa actually isn't his sister?

Also, Mikasa's obsession with Eren isn't played for cuteness or fanservice, at all.

I'm looking forward to season 2. Sure, season 1 had its issues, but it was a solid outing. I'm not a reader of the manga, but I'm betting for maximum profit, they'll finish the story off with an animated film.

Certainly not after the show fast-forwards to when they're older, yeah.

Mikasa's obsession with Eren bothers me, it's unhealthy and pretty damn creepy to boot. The fact that I think Eren x Annie would be a more functional and stable relationship than the quasi-incestuous Eren x Mikasa pairing really says something about how dysfunctional I think the latter would be.

I mean, neither ship is all that impressive but the other one is at least sea-worthy.

Why does it bother you so? Eren's really just older brother/senpai fare, but taken to an extreme. It probably wouldn't be out of place in a comedy anime, and looks strange here because of how insane the setting is. Does the obsession get even worse in the manga?

It just bugs me with how overprotective, jealous, and devoted to Eren Mikasa can be. The "Mikasa is a Yandere" meme has a certain amount of truth in it. The fact that Mikasa basically tries to commit suicide by Titan after Eren dies makes me wonder what would ever happen if he rejected her romantically. At the end of the day it gives me bad vibes to see such utterly one-sided devotion to someone.

There was official artwork of eren and mikasa in the future and they were together, cant remember where it is but yeah........basically you are going to have to get used to said obsession cause its going to happen.
Personally i somewhat agree and think mikasa should somewhat calm down before relationship status is discussed

Yes, Mikasa is fucked in the head, her parents were killed right in front of her but you are freaking out over nothing. Isayama himself said that he doesn't give a flying shits about romance.

Why don't you just write you don't give shit about romance unless you can self-insert in it?
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.

Well to be fair, isn't that the case for most people? I have nothing against seeing gay or lesbian relationships depicted in fiction but as a heterosexual male, they just don't interest me on the same level that heterosexual relationships do because I can identify with the relationship more than I can otherwise.

Ymir x Historia is still pretty fucked up compared to what I'd call a healthy relationship, but it's probably the most stable relationship in the series. That's damning by faint praise to be sure, but it's something. So yeah, I ship it.

I like yuri cause its either a) cute as shit or b) Just something im naturally drawn to, i don't generally self-insert myself into relationships because that's kinda meh, besides contrary to popular belief there ARE het ships that i do like, just none of them recently have had any appeal to me.

There are reasons with wanting two characters to be together that dont just boil down to "im gay therefore these characters must be too", for me its more if i see two characters that compliment each other and have a good growing relationship, with a lot of het couples in romance it takes VERY little to get them together and that's just plain boring cause you know the outcome, whereas with same sex couples in media the relationship tends to have to be built upon constantly and grow in a natural way plus due to the (unfortunate) intolerance of that some places the couple could not happen to save the show from censors, that's just far more interesting to me.

And please, don't even imply as there would literally be no reason for me to be a closet het, im gay and i like yuri, deal with it.
