Yeah. I really dont know what they were thinking with the plot. Dont waste your time. Theres also a little Macross element in it too to a certain extent with the attack of an alien race etc etc.

All you need to know that some of characters that almost died or should of died in the actual series actually died in Trailblazer. - The End.

Now we are in the preview of last season in AoT. Enjoy it people because now things will get political again.
Attack On Titan??

I'm halfway through Code Geass, pretty good so far. Finished movie Spirited Away last week, it was good, but I think it was a bit over-hyped.

My friend also has Appleseed anime movie on DVD, is that worth a watch, I never heard of it until now.

Want to see something better from Ghibli? Watch Princess Mononoke and Grave of the Fireflies. Or something lighter like Kiki's Delivery Service. My favorites are The Wind Rises and Porco Rosso.
Most of the folklore of Spirited Away is lost in translation. It's like showing a movie about a girl going through all Grimm Brothers' books to an Asian public.

Appleseed is worth checking out.
Highly recommend watching Patlabor, Ninja scrolls, GITS and Akira if you haven't seen any of those yet.

Next Episode: "The Basement."

I love how something as over the top as Attack on Titan can manage drama so good. It's a whole chapter about a single dilemma.

That's all in one new episode? I guess I'll get around to it. I kind of didn't like parts at first, but it's grown on me. I was too harsh. Especially considering what's out there. For a popular series, it's avoided a lot of the crappy formulas some action series get trapped into (shounen power ups, for example. The threat has remained roughly the same from the beginning, and the power levels are mostly in mundane training).

Rewatching Steins;Gate. I was watching Steins;Gate 0, but it's been awhile since I watched the original and forgot parts of it. There aren't many series I'll rewatch, but I'm sure most would agree it's one of the best.

Speaking of crappy formulas, I absolutely detest all of the "transportation" anime out there (I forgot the specific name for them.. there's a Japanese word for it).

Isekai, cheap way to start a story if you ask me.
Now we know the why of AoT, time for the rest.

The latest episode is a flashback showing Eren dad and we also learn that
Zeke/beast titan is Eren half older brother
and basic focus of the episode is how it all started with the titans and wall being built etc.
I'm a little bit more interested in the lore now but damn I hate waiting for next build up...I cba to read the manga either to find out.

I haven't watched any of this season's AoT yet (I'm waiting for it to end so I don't have to wait a week between episodes), but is the manga already over?

Cheap, cynical, lazy..

edit:

Almost finished with Steins Gate 0. What a drag. It's all very well done and most of the great characters are there.. but without the main character being the crazy mad scientist it's just not any good. Tbh, I expected all of this coming in, which is why I avoided it at first.. but it's even worse seeing it directly.

Watching Chaos Head because I'm on a Steins Gate/Science Adventure thing atm. I've heard nothing but bad things about this anime, but it's not so bad 5 episodes in (perhaps that will change). I like this setting though. I complained earlier about anime being flooded with formulaic crap, and at least this setting does something different. A lot of anime/manga seems like those old Pulp Fiction trends back in the old days, where writers cranked out garbage because they got paid by the word, and apparently some used a sort of paper wheel device that outlined their plots with typical elements. I almost think some anime (like isekai or magical girls) must be doing something similar.. That or they're using Mad Libs.

That last Titan episode was awesome. I wish I didn't have to wait so long for another.

Chaos;Head turned out to be as bad as people said. Second half was a mess. But Robotic;Notes (another Science Adventure series) is pretty fun so far.

What happened to the posters here? I feel like an ass for being the only one posting. :p

I thought this was funny:


Polygon accuses Titan of having fascist and antisemitic undertones (the crazier thing is that many of the comments seem to be nodding in agreement).

The uniforms "have a very fascist uniform sensibility” and "then there’s the Eldians living in ghettos, wearing star-embroidered armbands.”

I don't even consider myself a diehard fan, but I know enough about the story to know how dishonest this is. Nowhere are the military as a whole the good guys.. The Scouts are, but they're treated like misfits. Especially the younger group with Eren and Mikasa. How could you see this show as anything but that?! Even stranger for it come out right as this last episode did - where the Eldians are clearly shown in a sympathetic light. Just because they wear badges on their arms doesn't mean it's antisemitic. You're clearly supposed to feel sorry for them. Since when did simply presenting something mean it had ulterior/nefarious purpose?

I'm going to try not to bring politics too much into this, but if you don't take think that the (Western) media hasn't gone mad, then you're living under a rock. These people get outraged/triggered by anything it seems.

Anyways, now watching Occultic;Nine. This will be the latest of the Science shows, I guess... although it's apparently only loosely tied to the setting.

Agree, both sides are shown as evil, sometimes necessary evil, sometimes just plain evil. The "good guys" survey corps are suicidal madmen trying the impossible.
Both sides are on a spiral of hate and death, and have tortured and killed to get where they are now.
Seems like some nice clickbait to me.

I keep enjoying Fruits Basket 2019, that show gets better every week.
Carole & Tuesday is also nice.

I can't believe the article called out Hange, of all people. Like she's some example of instability and how we shouldn't trust in military leadership. This is the face of fascism apparently.

I love Hange. My favorite character. Sure she's unstable, but I just see her as filling in the wacky niche of the ensemble. I don't see the political ramifications here. Anime is full of fun mad characters like this. None of them are political either. It's why I praised Steins;Gate above. And Edward is by far one of my favorite anime characters ever. What is it about this series that drew attention like this?

The whole anime is a constant reminder of the same message of MGS3, today's friend may be tomorrow's enemy. I can't see how you can miss that.
