It’s a show about giant naked humanoids that apparently don’t have genitals, attacking and eating (as giants generally do- ‘I’ll grind their bones to make my calcium enriched bread’) little humans, well, average sized people, I THINK, that may, or may not, have genitals 🙂

Look, I’ve only watched the first episode, alright.
It focused on a walled city where the citizens are protected from said giants, the ‘Titans’, a few being uberginormous. The general populace never leave, only soldiers/scouts venture out to fight the titans, to reclaim the land, I suppose, and not be like prisoners within the walls, or, as Eren Yeager (the main protagonist, I assume) puts it, ‘to live like cattle.’
In this premiere episode on Adult Swim’s Toonami, one of the uberginormous giants tear down the wall and the city is overrun by the smaller giants, eating citizens (including Eren’s mom) as they smash their way through buildings (rather like a multitude of humanoidesque godzillas.)
I think I’m gonna like this!

Attack on Titan

    Love this show, for lots of spoiler-y reasons that I won’t talk about until you catch up. I can’t wait for the next season.

    It is rumoured a North American adapted version of ‘Attack on Titan’ for Nintendo 3DS will be released.

    And, for those who like curry, there is this (dunno if it is available to certain countries, but the packaging is uber epic, as it seems with most Japanese products)-

    K, so, they have just finished training and assigned to various positions when there is an attack, now, on this fortified/walled town/area.

    Apparently, no one seems to know (at least yet, or maybe it’s just me) how/why/from where/whence the giants emerged/came. They just suddenly appeared?

    Hmm, I wonder if they checked for any enormous beanstalks? 🙂

    Just watched the most recent episode.
    Geesus how horribly depressing AGAIN.
    The walls were breached, Titans are running rampant in the streets, the front lines are basically wiped out save for some of the new recruits. Some are pinned down at the munitions depot, a guy is loading a gun (like a shotgun or something) and then puts the barrel in his mouth and blows his brains out. Then there’s Armin still crying and in shock and blaming himself for the loss of Eren when Mikasa finds him and asks where Eren was. She tries to rally some of the recruits though says she’ll do it alone if need be and heads off by herself but is using too much of her propellant. Armin goes after her as does the others. When her propellant does get used up, she falls. With Titans closing in, she is ready to give up, but realizes it would dishonour the memory of Eren and just then, when all hope seems lost, this really buff Titan appears and kills two other Titans ignoring Mikasa and the others that manage to make it there. Wow!
    I kinda think the studly (though still genitalialess) Titan IS Eren. Maybe.

    Yeah, Spoiler Alert.

    So Eren is like the Hulk. ‘Eren smash Titans!’
    But Gessus, is every episode depressing? Is there no happy in this series at all?
    Like Eren, Mikasa and Armin find a box of
    puppies and kittens?

    Watched the final episode! Arghhhh! How long must I wait to know what happens?
    Does Annie ever emerge from the chrystalis, and if so, what as? Some new super Titan with wings? And what was her purpose in going against everyone? Was it just vengeance, or is there some other reason? Like bringing down the class (elite) order?
    And what exactly was Eren’s father doing/experimenting in the basement?
    Guess I’ll have to get the comic from the library, but it seems to always be out! 🙁
    It’s one of those things where I want to know, but if the telly series is to be continued, should I? Like will it
    spoil the anticipation (like how WD comic has a little).
    I know there is supposed to be two movies in the making and I think there were a couple stand alone episodes, and that Marvel might do some crossover, but not sure. *sigh*

    Look at this!

    It’s supposed to have 35 points of articulation. I think I saw where even the eyes are adjustable.
    It’s basically a BJD.
    Could be used as a posable artist’s model.
    Eren Jäger/Yaeger Titan

    ‘The Thinker’ (below) could also be used as an artist’s model. It’d be kinda ironic.

    And this is just absolute awesomeness-

    Looks great, even though the cgi/sfx might not be as realistic, it still looks beautifully done IMO.
    (and I’m not going to quibble over the fact that only Mikasa was some type of asian (mother asianish/father europeanish, and one of the last of her race. Seems all the other characters were mostly Germanic going by their names and appearance.)
