I was on gogoanime and just browsing through the 'new anime' section when I came across it. So usually, when I find an anime with beautiful art, I go check out the manga. I read till, like, chapter four (around the part where Jean and Eren got into that argument around dinner) and decided it got rather boring. Somehow, I decided to give it another try later on and the violence just disturbed me.
But I like to be disturbed. ;) And so I became intrigued and currently up to fecha with the manga
It was recommended to me por my freind at school. And because she has recommendations about anime are awesome (she told me about FMA which I loved), I decided to give it a try and it turned out really really awesome ^^
Many of my good friends on Tumblr were watching it. I had decided to wait until it was finished, since all of them kept saying such great things about it. I ended up giving up on that plan and just watched it over the summer.
A video where some fellow made Eren and Kirito in soul caliber. He dicho they were kind of similar. And I had already experienced the hype. So I went into AoT with a majorly negative outlook because I despise SAO. The scene with the hand where they suddenly get a gust of air irritated me because of how it was supposed to represent sorrow. I enjoyed the anime whenever I wasn't really thinking about it, but I was still hostile. So por the end of episode four I was thinking "Hear comes the trivial bullshit filler, great!" And then the colossus showed up. My reaction mirrored that of those on the wall, all my negativity was pouring out of my mind and por the end of episode five I was in awe of this anime.
