Episode 1 pretty much covered the first chapter.....I missed half of it though but from what I saw, it was spot on...Kinda ended abruptly though

First episode covered all the First chapter, and added thr timeskip as a bonus because the first chapter ended as I AM GONNA KILL ALL DUH VAMPIRES when he met Guren, so that is a neat bonus!

The only thing they skipped was the fact Mich and the other kids did mention they also had a traumatizing past, such as Mich being abused by his parents. The Too bad, We are your family now kinda felt odd.

But overall good episode, I am loving how the anime is doing justice to the scenery in OnS.

Based Wit delivered :D

 

But yeah, after watching the subs I noticed that they skipped the part where the kids told him about their past....I was hoping that they added that in but oh well

They could have done it, it wasn't a heartbreaking moment.

Just little kids being competitive on who was abused the most.

Ah no, it is not a big deal. I am just saying it would have been better.

What I am looking forward is next weeks episode and Chapter 4 and 11!

A very well done & solid pilot, overall (no OP, though).

 

Fantastic production elements to go along with Sawano's great music.

 

Pretty much confirms this will be a keeper.

Glad I found an awesome new anime to watch on the weekend now, especially since most of the ones I've been watching have finished recently. Loved the first episode. Looking forward to seeing how things turn out in this one.

the animation is good, what i'm finding issues with is the music, it's not creating the right atmosphere for me, it feels a bit out of place :/ (same of that happened with yumekui merry, but there even the animation and adaptation in general was terrible..)

The composer always nails when it comes to the battles, so let's wait...

 

Next Episode there is one

This looks pretty good so far. The opening scene of the show was dramatic. It was all calm and then people started falling down in the street. If it had been just that the scene would have been forgettable overall, but then the truck came out of nowhere and it probably hit/ran over a ton of people before. Just as an add to the scene the airplane came in and lit everything on fire. I went from:

"boring opening scene with people walking" :meh: 

to "people just falling over in the street...." :unsure:

to "Holy $#!+ a truck just rolled over those people in the street!!!!" :jawdrop:

to "Now there's a plane!!! WTF?! It's the end of the world" :whooo:

 

After that it was a bit quiet since it's a main character establishment section, and I kept wondering how many of those kids were gonna die. I had the blonde one pegged as dead the moment I saw him. Only noteworthy thing to mention in all that was the vampire noble reminded me of Baron Harkonen from Dune. Is he a pedo interested in little boys? :psyduck:
 Guess it doesn't matter since he's dead now.

 

Then that final confrontation. I wasn't surprised to see the vampire there, but I had been wondering the whole episode of something epic was going to happen and then I was thinking.... "wait.... don't kill all the little kids! I didn't want the fighting to go like this!!!"

 

As for that last scene, apparently the virus isn't around anymore since those people were not kids. Also, four years later I'm looking forward to seeing some interesting skills with Yu I'm assuming having been in vampire slaying training.

That aside, the characters are really great, the heroine is not your typical TSUNDERE, but a combination of kudere and the former. Guren on the other hand is that kind of character you wonder, why the fuck you are not the protagonist.

Now, I said this branchs from SnK, why? Because one, it didn't take 50ish chapters to make the plot not black and white, this is not HUMANS GOOD, DEH VAMPIRES EVUL. author has made it clear that both sides can be equally good to equally evil, for gods sake, he has hinted Humans are worse than vampires.

While there is comedic value, I also do not understand their appeal. To quote Sket Dance:

"What's so good about tsunderes?!  If they actually exist, I bet they'll be one heck of an irritating person."

http://bato.to/read/...rinity-bakuma/2

 

And to be fair, early on in SnK there is already the vibe that not all humans are good. They are all already stuck inside the Walls, yet conflict of interests still exists among them.

It was forecasted that should the worst come to be, chances are humans will be the ones to end each other instead of the Titans.

Also, that comparison is fundamentally flawed on the basis that most Titans we see in the series are mindless, no conscience whatsoever.

 

So, knowing barely anything about the series, I watched Episode 1.  It certainly wasn't explosive, and I saw the lone survivor outcome approaching.

But I'll watch a bit longer.

Tsunderes are sometimes decent, the issue is that the archetype is overused as hell. This is why heroines like Shinoa, Benio or Morgiana (Magi) are a refreshing change.

Yes, but the theme of SnK until around 40~ always went around hunting titans and the thing to block the Wall Maria, the setup for the royalty being this messed up happened until just now. I am not saying SnK had a 'All Humans good', (that guy who almost shot Armin when Eren was revealed to be a titan is a example), but the plot didn't go around it, in OnS, we are constantly in the 2 perspectives.

Series start to pick up after they all get the Demon Series, so stick with it a little longer!.
