"On that day, mankind received a grim reminder: we lived in fear of the Titans and were disgraced to live in these cages we called walls..."

For the past century, humanity has lived in fear of giant creatures known as Titans, whose diet consists solely of humans. Forced into societies within massive walls, humanity is on the verge of extinction. All is peaceful until a Titan taller than the outermost wall attacks and breaches it, which is where the series begins. Humanity's counteroffensive begins now.

Beginning its TV run in April 2013, Attack on Titan has become one of the most, if not the most popular anime of 2013, and with good reason. The show stands out from the fanservice-laden, boob-happy, inane series that normally get shat out year after year. The show has incredible animation, and is directed by the same man who directed Death Note. The series isn't afraid to kill characters, nor does it have a single ounce of fan service. The soundtrack is also incredible, despite the composer having also done the soundtrack for Kill la Kill.

If you aren't watching, or are planning to watch the series, you are missing out.

The anime has completed its first season with 25 episodes, with a dub planned for late next year. The manga updates once a month and is planned to be approximately 20 volumes long, of which 12 have been completed.

Because this series involves a lot of death and betrayal and other such spoileriffic topics,as a common courtesy, REMEMBER TO TAG THE SPOILERS!

And to kick off this discussion on the best anime of the year, Doctor O has created a gorgeous work of art for us.

This show is badass. No filler, no fanservice, no bullshit. And that's about all I can say without having to use spoiler tags.

To be flat honest with you, I really didn't like the show. The way the story was set up, while good in its own respects, was too... I dunno, oppressive? I mean I understand the fact that Titan's have the world virtually conquered, and I get that there's not a way to stop them really, but I have to admit The show had just as much whining and bitching as much as it had badass moments. And there were several Times that I wanted to scream, "Dammit Eren turn into the Giant Monster Already," after You found out that he could turn into a Titan on his own free will. The only characters that I really liked were the commanders, and Mikasa only because she was badass with her Titan killing, but none of the major parts of the cast were characters I could get attached to. But hey, it's just my personal opinion about it.

Edit: Spoilers now invisible

You must not like post-apocalyptic fiction, then. The theme of the show is finding a sliver of hope in a bleak, oppressive world where humanity has its back against the wall. Maybe that kind of story doesn't work for you, but I think it's pulled off pretty well here. And considering that most of the characters are young and inexperienced, I'd argue expecting them to always make the correct or rational choice is asking a bit much. They try, and I think that's enough.

By the way, you might want to tag some stuff there.

While I'm not denying the story is done well, which it is, I don't think that whole idea was wholly present in the situation in which the viewer was given. Maybe I missed something, maybe I need to go back and rewatch it, who knows. However, I figured that -as I was watching the show- the situation offered little to no hope at all. I mean, when the commanders weren't present, soldiers were getting slaughtered left and right by the titans, and I figured that they were damned either way. Maybe you're right and this type of anime doesn't sit well with me, but I can at least say that it left an impression.

On another note, what do you mean by tagging?(Noobish question, sorry.)

All of my friends have been going on about Attack on Titan for a long time. I haven't watched it yet because I'm busy following Gundam Build Fighters, but the clips I've seen and about definitely put this on a high priority of things for me to watch.

In a way, it kind of reminds me of All Quiet on the Western Front. And anything that invokes All Quiet on the Western Front definitely deserves some props from me.

I call it 'The Walking Dead' of anime. I guess it's a bit of a stretch, but it affected me the same way Walking Dead did.

I've watched 17 episodes now. Despite a certain bait-and-switch and the fact that Mikasa is about as interesting as watching paint dry, it's a good show. You should watch it.

Too few shows live up to their hype. So refreshing to watch one that actually does. The only legitimate problems that I can even think of are the pacing and the last battle. Or, more specifically for that second one, the planning of the last battle. Commander Erwin, you asshole...

By the way, what's with all the audience hate for Eren?! I guess it's now suddenly a bad thing to want to destroy the abominations responsible for viciously devouring your friends and family and bringing humanity to the brink of extinction.

What the fuck.

I haven't seen any audience hate for Eren, to be honest, and that's kind of surprising that it apparently exists. He's one of the better shounen protagonists out there. The only reason I can see is if people have taken their sympathy for the enemy titan shifters a little too far. Which is dumb because we know really little about any of them.

That or people don't like him because he isn't a typical shounen protagonist.

Really? I've seen it everywhere, and it completely baffles me. Comments on anime fan sites, blog posts... endless complaints about how annoying Eren is. Apparently his life's passion for killing giant man-eaters makes him whiny and bitchy and angsty and emo. But at the same time there are others railing about how bland and cliche he is for the same reasons.

Tired of it.

To be fair that's the same thing for every shonen protagonist these days in terms of complaints. It doesn't matter if said character cares a lot or doesn't care enough, they're going to catch heat for it. Though there's less of an excuse to whine about such characters in this specific instance, given the tone that the show is going for.

Anime fans are generally idiots and don't have any actual rationale for hating a main character other than for the reason that it's the main character. Meanwhile Side Character #12 gets all the hipster blowjobs because reasons.

I'm done watching all 25 episodes and it was a really awesome show. Personally, I am quite confused why some people say this show has a lot of whining. Eren and the others are about as far removed from Shinji as you can get. My only real complaint is that during the battle of Trost, Mikasa made for a really poor substitute protagonist. I find her to be abusively boring and her personal "revelation" in the past that was brought up twice felt nonsensical and stupid. There's also the other things I previously mentioned about her. To me, she's the Harley Quinn of AoT - she doesn't work without Eren.

Anyway, I very much enjoyed everything after that, especially Captain (or whatever the hell he is, the sub is inconsistent) Levi and the female Titan aka. Annie Leonhart.

She is the Iblis Titan. Her ass will destroy the world.

Also, I think I've finally figured out who the female Titan really is. Based on that face, the hair and it's color, it can only be...

No, though given how much of the manga the first season adapted, and the rate new chapters are coming out, it'll probably be late next year.
