    I really enjoyed this anime and can't wait for the next season. :(
    By the way, people say the next season won't come until 2015-2016.

    Let's share if you heard any news regarding the season two!

    i thought the anime was a one season only thing.

    personally, towards the end, a lot seemed just dumb. specially how noone realized the female titan was actually the human that looked exactly like the female titan...

    I love it. i think alot of people dislike it because of how popular it got but that doesnt make it a bad anime. Its interesting and i love how brutal some of the sequences are. The female titan part was pretty obvious but im interested to see what comes of that and find out what her motivations are. Altho, as interesting as that story-direction might be. Im still waiting for them to go back to the whole "key to the secret basement" stuff which seems to have been lost in favour of battle sequences. Its still a good show tho.

    Season 2 is going to drag so hard tho, iv read the manga up to last months issue and they are clearly milking how popular it is now. No spoilers but prepare yourself for more typical anime style dragging out plotlines over about 10 episodes. If you need your fill tho, just search the manga online and read it. It gets released and translated in like... hours and its usually an episode per month.

    Most overhyped mediocre Michael-Bay-Film of an anime.
    It distracts you from the fact that its characters, pacing and plot are subpar with pretty explosions and big goofy violence.

    I didn't watch the anime, but I am following the manga. It's pretty nice.

    One here.
    While its very cliche' and following similar ideas from other stuff like Gurren Lagann, there's just something about it that I really like.
    Also watch the OVAs ep.2 is my favorite :)

    The anime was pretty decent. It's flawed, but enjoyable nonetheless. I prefer the manga myself.

    The anime made stupid changes in the last episode:
    a) moving around events and ruining a huge plot twist and the character's reactions about it.
    b) pandering to Levi's fangirls by having a pointless action scene that goes against Eren's characterization so far, after spending some minutes just standing there and just staring. He doesn't move in the manga for a very good reason: he can't, his legs were broken earlier.

    That and the fact that they padded the previous episodes with pointless filler (last justified filler was ep 22) just to fit in those asspull Levi fanservice moments. Oh and to make place for it they removed the plot twist entirely save for a split second joke scene in the very end.

    The manga is crudely drawn, but it's still promising even though there's a complete and somewhat confusing shift in the direction going on, after the author decided that "Humanity goes extinct, protagonists all die" wasn't a satisfying ending after all. The spinoffs though are ridiculous.

    I prefer Arakawa's Arslan manga, tbh.
