That was kind of neat. It's good to see some folks having harmless fun.

This did not look easy to pull off, A for pure effort of idea.

The most important part of your cosplay is DID YOU HAVE FUN Y/N.

This guy clearly had fun.

I don't thing this is even cosplay, I think full-on costumers would accept this guy.

Awesome! I really liked AoT for a while. In a way it reminds me of La Planete Sauvage. I also like the way you learn about the mechanics of the 3Ds as the show goes along, vs.. let's say Evangelion where it's pretty obvious and then "OMG GUESS WHO'S THAT MECHA!!" Jeager's story is the only one that interested me so I sort of gave up after S1. That and a "plot twist" that ACTUALLY pissed me off, vs. True Detective, which really wasn't a plot twist at all.

It's a show where the setup is a lot cooler than anything the writers actually do with it.

Funny you should mention Evangelion twists, because the "OMG WHO COULD THAT TITAN BE?" non-mystery reminded me of the "OMG WHO IS THE FOURTH CHILD?" bit from Eva. You knew immediately who the BLONDE FEMALE MARTIAL ARTS USING titan was the instant it showed up but the show went on for half a dozen episodes acting like it was a total mystery and huge reveal.

I haven't read the comic so I don't know for a fact where the plot goes after season 1 of the show, but I guarantee it's going to be some "the sins of mankind" bullshit where the titans are actually failed experiments by the asshole government. Eren's father was a doctor working on perfecting the transformation and succeeded with Eren. The armored titan, colossal titan, and MYSTERIOUS BLONDE MARTIAL ARTS USING female titan are part of a group to overthrow the government using the feral titans.

Just like Evangelion, the show is centered entirely around the main character constantly needing pep talks about why he should fight. I think two-third of the show is someone getting pep talk on why they should be dutiful nationalists.

Someone I know posted a summary of the show:

Dude: Hey Eren, can you pass the salt?

Eren (voiceover): Salt... I remember once passing salt to my mother.

(collection of still frame flashbacks)

Eren (voiceover): why... why turn to someone like ME if you want salt?

Armin (voiceover): He's thinking about salt, isn't he? That reminds me of the time I got beat up in the street...

(collection of still frame flashbacks)

Armin (voiceover): I wish I could pass the salt for him. Just once I wish I had the strength to pass the salt shaker...

Mikasa: Eren... do you remember? Do you remember why people sprinkle salt on their food?

Eren: *gasps and dilates his eyes*

Mikasa: Do you remember?

Eren: *angry and defiant* Because it enhances flavor!

to be continued!

hahahahahaha yeah. I think that was pretty much an episode. I like the idea of humans transfiguring themselves into titans out of effort for their friends and loved ones. But I get it already guys. I watched it about half a year ago, and I really feel sorry for people who are watching it on AS right now. I mean, there's information in the boring episodes, but seriously, it's not downton fucking abbey.

whoops. Yeager. :)

I guess there isn't an S2 yet, but the show shifts at some point to Levi and others, and I guess I just assumed that was S2. In exciting news for people who like news that can't end well, the live action movie will be coming out Summer 2015 :(

I admit that even if made of balloons, that thing is still pretty creepy. So, success, I guess?

Nerds only communicate in cliche, I guess.
