I've finally watched Attack on Titan;

So good, I've watched 6 episodes straight. The real link was the voice of Edward Elric from Full metal Alchemist voicing the hero and props to whoever that voice actor is he's brilliant! It has tones of death note with the interlinking break points and tactical breakdowns similar in many ways to death notes rules and procedures, and of course FMAs similar central city themes. I also like the no nonsense approach to humanity being down the pecking order in the food chain it really gets you thinking. I also like the fact one Titan looks alot like one of the Beatles or Joe Allen who plays for Stoke City, that's pretty scary in itself!

Over the past couple of months (since my last post), I've watched Gravion & *Gravion Zwei (decently fun "Super Robot" series, that's a bit fanservice-y), The Sorcerer Hunters (decent fantasy adventure/comedy), and Neon Genesis Evangelion (a rewatch. It still gets as weird as heck towards the end, but it still holds up wonderfully, and I'd say still in my top 10).

Also continuing to watch Toonami on Saturday nights, and with Dragon Ball Z Kai, One Punch Man, Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans, and Hunter X Hunter, I'd say it has the strongest lineup ever since it's revival (oh, there's also Naruro Shippuden & One Piece, which are okay I guess).

@themcnoisy: you mean Eren, Vic Mignogna (the voice of Edward Elric) doesn't voice Eren, Eren is voiced by Bryce Papenbrook

@FullbringIchigo: Really? Sounded the same to me, enunciation and everything. Oh well. Watched episode 7 this morning and there's a titan beating on other titans. Mad.

Been reading One-Punch Man and One Piece manga wise, recently watched Attack on Titan anime wise. One-Punch Man is amazing and I've only read the first two volumes, and One Piece is slowly declining as it goes on, and I'm really behind, now on volume 46. One Piece is still my favourite manga series, but I have noticed a noticeable decline, but nothing too big. I love the way the art style has gone (and not just the boobs, but yes, that's probably part of it), but the humour has got worse and the story gets more and more ridiculous as it progresses.

I'm sure if I'd read Dragon Ball I'd probably say that's my favourite manga series, though, because every movie I've watched and every game I've played I've loved. Just got the real stuff to go.

@Speedy67: @RR529: For me one piece is hard to really get into as an anime / manga its too big. Just like asking someone to catch up with Eastenders or Coronation street (British soap operas) starting from 2006. I much prefer shorter series with a natural conclusion.

@themcnoisy: Fair enough. Personally though I'd say Volume One of the One Piece manga is well worth a try, it being what wowed me into reading it from 2012 onwards, being at least a decade late.

It's not great but I think A.O.T's anime is pretty good. For me, the story suffers a bit with pacing issues and also can be too melodramatic at times. The animation quality could've been better during certain parts as well, but just me nitpicking. That said, I'm still looking forward to Season 2.

@themcnoisy: Some of the local cinemas here are screening One Piece Film: Gold movie but i think I'll wait for the DVD.

Also, new teasers for the Ghost in the Shell movie have been released. I was surprised to see Beat Takeshi in it! Still don't understand the casting choices but I think visually (the setting) it looks great.

@WanderingBullet: Yes you are right there, I've now watched upto part 11 and I do wish the characters would stop with the self doubt monologues. The first 6 episodes were brilliantly paced, the last 5 have dragged. I'm really unsure about the special powers of a certain cast member too, Eren dieing was a real shock so its a shame this character has this special power. I'm trying not to enter spoiler territory here which is impossible.

@themcnoisy: if you want to put potential spoilers such as the fact Eren is a Titan Shifter you just need to put spoiler tags in your post

that way only the people who want to know will look so you can't be blamed for spoiling something for someone

@themcnoisy: yeah it's handy for example i know what the titans really are and what's in the basement because i read the manga so i could put it on here with a spoiler tag and not worry about ruining it for those who don't want to know

@FullbringIchigo: I haven't got up to the basement yet. Battle of Trost and the boulder is where I'm upto. The skywings with the captain who can easily kill titans have just enrolled a certain somebody. That's the exact point I'm at.

@FullbringIchigo: Watched Attack On Titan in its entirety recently, and it was good. It gets a little slow and boring in the middle section of the series, but the sections before and after that are full of awesome moments. I found the show got its best in the last three episodes, and I thought, why couldn't it be that good for the whole series? Oh well, I'll look forward to Series 2 when it eventually comes round.

Watched the first episode of Drifters...much better than I expected never really been into those bloody anime but this one is good

@TheDoofingCritic, Drifters started out good, but I quickly dropped it around the 3rd or 4th episode because they made Jesus the main antagonist. It's a shame too, because it's produced well.

The standout anime this season for me are the Last Witch Izetta & Flip Flappers.
