    We really need a 2nd season of Galko-chan. Is there enough source material for more?

    So I never got on the hype train that was Attack on Titan, 4 years ago. I marathon-ed it now since the second is about 7 episodes in...and like damn, I don't know how you can wait 4 years to see what happened next.

    Like literally, jumped straight into the story like there wasn't a 4 year gap. It worked for me since I was able to watch it back-to-back. Otherwise... :o

    This is probably why I don't bother watching adapted anime until years later now, who knows when they'll ever finish.

    I'd watch a Gunnm anime even if each episode was spread out farther apart than Hitomi Tanaka's eyes.

    Yeah, I kept putting off watching it for a couple of years too, so when I watched Season 1 in January, I was lucky that I didn't have much of a wait.

    Attack on Titan had a really interesting concept then squandered it meandering around. Good ups, but a lot of BS dumbness in between that feels like they are just wasting your time.

    People said some of the pacing things were a problem, but I don't know. That whole Female Titan arc in Season 1 was awesome, and a lot of good stuff has happened in Season 2, like Ymir suddenly becoming one of my favourite characters. Hange is still too good though, lol.

    The biggest problem with Attack on Titan it always has to end an episode on a cliffhanger or major revelation at the end of every episode and it's willing to break the rules of it's universe in order to do it. Like how it had a group Titans attack during nightfall when it was established they are not active at night. It always keeps the tension high for everything to a ridiculous degree.

    You're incorrect. And I mean, it should be obvious he wasn't trying to be sly but that it was on purpose because the characters SPECIFICALLY point out how strange it is.

    Also, spoilers for why:
    The rule is "broken" because of a certain ability possessed by an enemy titan.

    It's pretty obvious the series isn't breaking its own rules, but rather what the people thought about the titans was incorrect or is now incorrect.

    it's called "character development".
    since the threat of the titans will always loom over humanity, why not get to know who the characters involved in the struggle a little better?
    some of their lives might be all too brief but it's certainly compelling imo.
    that's how you get readers/viewers of any comic or show invested and/or turned into fans.

    the move away from just the fight against the titans plot to a conspiracy plot shows maturity in the writing and the direction the creator wants to take AoT into the future.

    if you feel AoT is wasting your time, then go read or watch some other garbage that you fancy lololol

    I too would like to see a Gunnm anime series though I would appreciate it if large chunks of 'Last Order' got edited out as they don't serve any real purpose in the larger story and in a pacing sense remind me too much of the filler episodes from the Claymore anime. I am also not super optimistic that the upcoming live action Hollywood adaptation is going to be watchable. -_-

    Why don't the Titan's ever have genitals? I'd like to see the Eren and Annie fight again, but this time with genitals.

    That's...not something I need to think about. I was searching up something on AOT, and someone had done up a "Titan Mikasa" and Titan Eren doing the nasty, anatomy and all. It...wasn't pretty.

    Haven't seen it yet, though I want to, but since it's a movie and not a series I imagine they had to cut a lot of the story short, because honestly calling that story just "pretty good" seems wrong to me lol

    Haven't read the manga in awhile but they did cut some side character development and some other stuff towards the end. There might be less impact for me since I already knew what was going to happen.

    Both FMAs are good imo.

    I saw Koe no Katachi a month or so back since they had limited screening where I was.

    Be prepared to feel like shit while watching this. Pretty much a given from the subject matter and genre alone, though. Saori Hayama does fantastic work voicing Shouko and KyoAni artwork/animation is top notch as always. Didn't read the manga, but skipping over content and condensing things to fit a movie format is to be expected. Side characters and subplots are generally always the first to go and it's no different here. You could tell the film could've fleshed some of that out more if it had a longer runtime. It was already feature length at 2 hours so it's by no means a short film, and there's always the option to read the manga afterwards to get the extra supplementary details anyways. Beautiful piece of animation. ED song is a perfect fit too.


    Get in b4 it gets jewtubed if ur too scrub to dl it. Subs are mediocre, but that's what you get with speedsubs.

    Kimi no Na Wa has more mainstream appeal, the story doesn't slow churn your gut the same way Koe no Katachi does.
    Average people can easily relate to the romance plotline in Kimi no Na Wa. The subject matter in Koe no Katachi is more heavy and touches on many difficult to deal with topics.
    Both films are great, in fact the latest Japanese Film Critics gave Koe no Katachi - Best Animated Film and Makoto Shinkai - Best Animated Film Director for his work on Kimi no Na Wa.
    Kimi no Na Wa just happened to take off bigger than anyone could've ever imagined.

    They took a sucessful franchise, had a guy known for writing really good stories write a prequel for it and then had a studio that's known for really pretty art and good animation make it into an animu.

    So yeah, worth a watch.

    Characters don't really 'develop' much in Titan. You get a bit of back story so you can relate to them or feel sad that like everybody else in this world ... people they know died to Titans so you get a flashback saying 'feel bad for this person this world sucks and Titans eat people ... even their family got eaten!'. There's some interesting developments because of the mysterious world, and at this point in the anime I'd say I was pretty happy with it. Oh look they are people not food!

    Happy enough I went to read the manga to know more and it was a grand disappointment, I doubt they'll ever adopt all of it to an anime because it jumps the shark pretty bad imo.

    some unsolicited advice for you since you're such a connoisseur:
    - stop reading comic books/manga, they will grandly disappoint you.
    - stop watching anime, it will jump the shark pretty bad.

    let the plebians enjoy their disappointing manga and shark-jumping anime though, they don't have much...

    oh btw, attack on titan sucks ass big-time if you must know...

    That's not really a bad thing, and I'm enjoying it anyway. Then again, my gateway anime to stuff that wasn't DBZ or a video game adaptation (see also Persona 4 and Steins;Gate) was Black Lagoon, so that might just be a different norm, lol.

    And I've heard about that Blame! movie just coming out from a couple of the VAs tweeting about it. I'm curious on checking it out.
