Than I would ask you to watch the series again. Pay attention to how the Titans move, I think you'd be hard pressed to tell me the some of their entries and appearances weren't designed to illicit a laugh. This is an unrelated complaint but how does tension still remain in the show when Levi appears? He breaks the worlds rules and can kill Titans in the blink of an eye with no effort.

I would accept that in a show that wasn't serious. But in a show where someone has to break down in tears once an episode? Hell no.

I'm inclined to think that their movements were more intended to be A.) a realistic amount of clumsiness that you'd expect from a massive, half-braindead monstrosity, and B.) an artistic choice to highlight their inhumanity and invoke the Uncanny Valley effect, which is itself a very subjective effect.

Levi was pretty much the one reprieve from constant failure and defeat for the humans. Neither he nor Mikasa, the other resident badass, actually break the world's rules--they're a lot more skilled and/or talented with their weapons and gear, but they do nothing that anyone else in the show is physically incapable of doing. It's still not effortless, and there are times where the two of them make mistakes or fail. But, without someone actually being able to fight and get the upper hand against the Titans, the show would quickly lose all impact--instead of a desperate fight with a faint sliver of hope, it'd just turn into an endless parade of people getting stomped and eaten with no reason for the audience to care, because it's inevitable anyway. The presence of hope, that faint sliver of a chance at victory, is why the show has impact.

I lost interest in Attack on Titan when:
Spoiler:
It went all internal struggle-ie, I was in it for learning more about the Titans, if I wanted internal strife I'd go watch/read a number of better anime/manga. I might jump back on the train when they get back to fighting Titans and learning about the secrets of the world, but not until then.

Frost, I can't argue with you on this. If you think Levi turning into a spinning top of death and grinding up a titan's extremities like it's jet set radio isn't breaking the world's rules than there is nothing I can do or say to convince you otherwise.

I do find it amusing that all of Levi's cohorts get utterly destroyed by one Titan, despite their track record

Sure, it's a "special" Titan, but that doesn't excuse their slaughter

And when the survivors return , we see friends and family looking forward to seeing them again

That's just cruel...

Perhaps it's time for me to peruse the snk wiki again

I'm very interested in the Wall Titans especially

If you're comparing a TV show you like to a response I made I'd be surprised if you came to any other conclusion.

It's all fun and games until protagonists and antagonists start hurling planets around

Seriously, in Naruto, one of Ten-Tails' attacks is so massive, you can see the curvature of the earth

And yet they managed to beat it...

Good point

Plot Armor at its finest, as well as the Bullshit that is Naruto being able to cancel the "Opening the eight gates will kill you" effect...

God, you can't even let Guy do a heroically suicidal sacrifice, can you?

It's like those scenes where one guy is facing down  4563245 guns, cannons, warheads, missiles, and every other kind of ordinance and when they're all done firing...he's left on a small spindly spire in the middle of a crater the size of Australia

This is the middle East's theme song:
Which is really why we just need to organize fighting tournaments to decide Iraq's future. And make an anime and a game series based off of that. 

Because, let's face it, Tim Kennedy is already an Ex-Special Forces MMA fighter with salon-quality hair and a goatee. If he's not an escaped fighting game character, then I'm a fucking Cav.

The Kurds are G's, yeah. This much was known. 

Given that they've received training and equipment from us, still express pro-Western views (they're bigger fans of America than most Americans) and remain an ally against mutual enemies.....I fully expect we'll be fighting them within two decades.

@Kurds (Related)
I still find it strange that Turkey could be part of the EU. Frickin' look at it, it's a crime to insult the President. Because that's not the kind of law you see the big bad in a fantasy story written for twelve-year-olds implement at all. Nope.

Though I still say that given what's happening in Irak, and now that the US isn't as dependent on foreign oil as it used to be, it should start hedging its bets in region and invest some diplomatic capital with Iran.

Re-opening diplomatic channels, warming up the relationship, loosening up a number of restrictions...

Of course, as long as there are sanctions in place we can't expect this cooperation to be more than highly situationnal, but I think that'd be a step in the right direction.

If only because "divide and conquer".

Stalin was right, when he was talking about useful idiots.

When I'm starting to see on my dashboard SJWs from the other side of the pond who have literally never read Charlie Hebdo declaring that they "had it coming" as Islamophobes.


Guys, Charlie Hebdo is, like, a trashier, written weekly version of The Daily Show. One which doesn't spare anyone. Government, Opposition, Clergy and Fundamentalists of all religion, Patrons and Worker organizations...

Saying they're Islamophobic, considering they target all religions with their satire, is like saying that the weather doesn't like you.




Bottom line, though, is people (on Tumblr or elsewhere), will always be quick to make judgment calls reinforcing their own worldview regardless of facts.

And I think that's the most important thing to keep in mind these days.

@Harmony
Uggghhhhh. God, those people have been crawling out of the woodwork. "Maybe we should redefine what hate speech is to include making fun of the majority religion on the planet." "Don't support Hebdo, support only that one Muslim security guard who died, he's the only innocent in this." "I guess this just shows the problem with having freedom of speech." "I like the taste of my own shit so much that I connected a tube from my ass to my mouth. Wait, what were we talking about?"

If I were you Harmony I would one by one unfollow the blogs that posted or reblogged the posts in question. Unless they just did so to tell the poster they were an idiot. Just recently I unfollowed a lady who adopted the idea that any criticism made against a female regardless of if the criticism had nothing to do with their genitals or the fact that they had a certain set of genitals was sexist.

I'm happier for it.

The problem with that logic is as follow:

1/ Some of these people are friends
2/ Doing that means locking yourself into an echo chamber

Nah, I'll just discuss the issue with them if I get too offended by their ignorance. Otherwise I'll just ignore it.

Who had the armor fetish?:

Can't really imagine being friends with people that do things that make you uncomfortable

My "friends", on the other hand...:
*checks the two people my age offline that I have somehow picked up as minions*

*One smokes and looks like a girl, but is actually a guy*

*The other is someone that smokes water vapor (I don't care if it's not the same as smoking, nicotine is nicotine to me and I hate it with a passion)*


*sighs* Nevermind...
