Objectionable content: Intense
Plot Summary: Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by enclosing themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

Things get more harrowing when the MPs make a move on Erwin and the Levi Squad narrowly avoids capture. Eren is also having problems with his Titan transformation, and a deadly killer has been hired to secure Eren and Historia, one Levi knows all too well from his youth.

Funimation Streams Attack on Titan TV Anime

Crunchyroll Also Streams Attack on Titan TV Anime

Adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s acclaimed battle manga begins streaming on Sunday

So this started on CR today and I figured I’d try it out to see what all the hype was about.
I just finished up the first episode and I have to say, that was actually a pretty damn good opening episode!
I’ll definitely be keeping up with the rest of the series since it’s on CR as well.

Go Back! There’s one more episode[#2] up. I concur Coffee, this show looks promising.

I was just looking at this on CR, but now I think I will watch it as well.

Thanks guys!

I’m torn as the plot summary sounds interesting but the trailers look pretty bad. The trailers remind me of Chrome Shelled Regios and I was not a fan of that.

Does this show actually have depth? I hope that it does.

I guess that I’ll check it out, though now I have to decide via which provider I wish to procure it.

I teared up twice in the first episode.
Both times, for characters we barely even knew up to this point.
In the first case, it was someone we’d only seen for like a split second or two at the very opening of the show.
It has a surprising amount of emotional strength, as for actual depth though, as I haven’t read the manga and have only watched 2 episodes, I couldn’t tell you how deep it actually gets.

As for where, I’d say go with CR, as the FUNi stream is currently Subscription Only and they haven’t put up Ep. 02 yet.

I thought the first episode was pretty impressive. Great music too!

I find this disconcerting.

Episode 2 –


Wow – another emotional episode. Spectacular so far!

That one huge giant looks as if he’s outgrowing his skin. And he seems to really have it in for the humans. The rest of the Titans just seem to be going with the flow, without any real purpose other than eating.

Ep. 04

Man, I love the OP for this!

So it looks like Eren will get his first shoit at the colossal titan next episode!

Episode 3 –


For all his resolve, Eren almost didn’t make training. I’m glad it was the belt and not him. But I have a feeling that someone damaged his belt on purpose. We shall see.

I’ve been watching this anime and have been enjoying it very much. Great concept.

Ep. 05 is now up.
Only up to 720p though. No 1080p.

And the 1080p is now up.

Because I might be more safe here discussing without getting spoilers on the show,
Eren is going to have to pull off a heck of a magic act to come back from being chomped down on.
It would be interesting if you could kill a titan from the inside out. Oh, and how did his basic trainers know that cutting the back of the neck actually kills a Titan? Does anyone think Pixi has a funny name, but can possibly kick some Titan butt?

Anyhow, fun titles thus far.

Episode 4 -


Eren finally realizes that those that can fight the Titans are the least likely to be sent to fight them. At graduation, the trainees are given a choice – Garrison, Survey Corps, or Military Police. However, only the top ten may opt for the Military Police – the job furthest away from fighting Titans. Eren is in that top ten but chooses the Survey Corps. His fellow trainees are surprised, but Eren had always intended to kill the Titans. He accuses the others of letting their hard work go to waste as they hide in the interior. Even when Eren is told he can’t survive, he is still passionate in his beliefs and tells everyone that “humanity isn’t finished yet!” Armin and Mikasa will join Eren of course, but a few unexpected others will also join the Survey Corps since his words fired them up to fight!

But as this discussion takes place up on the wall, the Colossal is suddenly there! They are all blown of the wall as it is breached. Those that thought to use their gear are somewhat saved, but the others……….

Eren is suddenly reminded of the events five years ago and his resolve to kill the Titans strengthens. He calls to his teammates to “prepare for combat” as he goes off to face the Colossal. This is so exciting!!
