the manga had a extra page with a swimsuit clad mikasa, not really what you would generally call sexualised.

No you're just incredibly ignorant of what goes on in Japan especially if you believe state this.

The manga's sold over 6 million copies over the past 2 years and it's won awards such as the Kodansha Manga Award and been nominated for a Manga Taisho award...

Thanks for relaying that useless information to be because if you could have actually read that's not what I was calling him out for. Also using the "Kodansha Manga Award" one that was given to such candidates like Fairy Tail and Air Gear isn't a good way to drive your point across.

All he's going to do is go around derailing threads but whatever. Be my guest and help him out.

So prove him wrong instead of resorting to sarcasm. "You're an idiot who doesn't know what he's talking about" does nothing but piss people off.

There's no sarcasm here. I know this guy. He runs an IRC that is solely for trolling shows. He will never post a response to any show that isn't in some form or fashion negative.

So you can't prove him wrong when all he's trying to do is bait.

Posts without arguments to back up your statement are never going to help anyone. Either write the reasons or don't post.

That's useful info to me. Please don't equal your opinion to the one of everyone else.

All your posts in this thread are negative too.

I'd appreciate it if both sides (yes both) would stop the bickering right now.

Anyway I recently caught up with the manga again and looking forward to seeing it animated.

I can't say to be particularly happy for this anime adaption even if I wanted for this to happen. The problem is that, in my opinion, this is too early.

Sure there is enough material to adapt, but the story so far hasn't reached a point where you can successfully create something out of it that can be considered even remotely conclusive.

The way I see it this anime can only end in a huge cliffhanger or into an original ending that will completely screw up the source.

Either way there will be people that will be very dissatisfied. I guess they couldn't wait any longer to exploit the huge hype that this manga series is having. Commercially speaking they are doing the "right" thing, but from an artistic standpoint not so much.

there won't be any difference whether the manga will have good stopping/ending point in the future or not.

since atm SnK has more than enough material to cover 2 cour series easily,

and I don't see it gets animated more than that in one go.

Couldn't agree more. The manga had it's first real big reveal only 2 chapters ago and it's at chapter 43 right now. If the manga is 26 episodes long, they could probably reach that big reveal. But what do you do after that?
On the other hand I really want to see it animated cause it'd be awesome to see the action in animated form.

It depends on how fast they adapt the chapters, if any material is added/changed/removed, if they decide to go with multiple seasons, etc. I too worry about the conclusion because currently there isn't really any good spot for the anime to stop at, but that doesn't mean much except the possibility of an implausible, rushed, or abrupt ending.

Has a schedule been released for it yet?

I think it would ultimately come down to the episode count. I doubt it'll be 13 episodes since that would frankly be a waste considering how popular the series is, but if it was then I could see it just stopping at some random point in the manga and waiting for another season. If it's 24-26 episodes then an anime only ending is pretty much inevitable since even if they only went at the pace of say 1 chapter per episode, it would still be years before they could make another season and it would be more practical to make up an ending and reboot the anime later down the line when the manga's closer to ending. Of course this is all under the assumption the anime's successful. It probably will be but you never know.

You would appreciate if both sides would stop yet you just replied back to him after I specifically told you who he was and what he wants. Which is to troll. And you just fed him. Nice.

It's Tetsurō Araki and I.G/Wit. Expect 22-26 episodes. It will start on April 7th, 1 in the morning in Japan. I have faith this can be good since Tetsurō is one of the best manga adapters in recent history.

Also, expect Funi to licences it. Seeing as how it will inevitably be the biggest Spring show.

Considering how big the manga is, as well as that a live action movie is on the way, if the anime is a success even if it had an original ending, it would be a candidate for having a reboot down the line when the manga finishes up.
