Well from what I hear, the dubs casting is pretty darn good.

Should be fun to rewatch every week with the touched up animation.

This should be a hit for Adult Swim.

I've watched two episodes of the dub on adult swim and I'm massively disappointed. I think Michael J Tatum is a horrible adaptive script writer.

I won't get picky. I'll just mention the one thing that I personally just hated the most.

It's just that Mikasa never cussed ever in this show on Crunchyroll's subs. I'm weird, I'm not fond of cuss words and it's one of several reasons I liked Mikasa. Yet in two episodes into the show, Michael J Tatum has turned this character into someone else entirely for me. I hate it.

1.34 million for episode one, then 1.46 for episode two, so the word of mouth is good. (For comparison, most Toonami shows in that time slot get around one million viewers.)

It is good, but some people make it out like some gift of God while some say it's a cheap mans version of Muv-Luv Alternative.

Opinions are mixed.

Well English dub....Well I must say it's better then some out there and I've only seen some dialogue changes but the first thing I noticed was armins voice.....now because eren looks older and is not as much as a wuss you'd expect him to have a deeper voice sadly no....anyways the 3rd episode I had some hope I was at comic con that day and met jeans English dubbed voice actor and asked some questions but you know I got home waited and episode 3 came on....it was better since the voices weren't horrible but that's when episode 4 dubbed came in now in the series Annie is my favorite female character (honestly mikasa is a little cliche) well I was surprised at the voice and I was like..."Well she does have a bit if a different past so it does make sense...." anyways overall if you can mind the voices and dialogue changes its the same anime we watched with English subtitles

A: How badly phrased the english dub is such that what they are saying doesn't make sense in either english or japanese and would not be phrased that way in either language.

English dub: "And just like that, everything changed. At that terrible moment, in our hearts, we knew... "home" was a pen... and humanity, cattle."

What kind of obscure metaphor is that? Have you ever heard anyone talk in short phrases like that? Not even when building up suspense do you do that in this way. Just like what? It's the fucking beginning of the series, we don't know what he's referring to! It's like something's already happened, but the titan doesn't come through until a few secs later.

Who the fuck is talking in the present tense? No characters have been introduced yet!

Sub: "On that day, humanity received a grim reminder... the terror of being ruled by the titans.....and the humiliation of being kept in a cage."

Much better. The thoughT-phrase idea makes REALISTIC SENSE like this. 3 distinct points. Notice this is in the past tense not the present, which makes it more realistic as we are seeing a top view of the city not a in person view.

The whole Hannes saying because he was scared makes no sense in the dub as to why that would make Eren cry instead of shout while it did in the sub.

Home was a pen? The way he says it makes it seems like my house can be stir-fried which makes no logical sense until skips the 'was a' and goes straight to cattle. That is NOT a expression in the english language.

People, are a pen (WTF?). The forum, PAPER. (PFFT HERE IN AMERICA WE JUST SAY PEOPLE POST ON THE FORUMS AND MOST PEOPLE FIND THAT TOO OBSCURE TO UNDERSTAND ANYWAY)

Wow, yesterday I watched 15 episodes in a row (from dinner all the way to late night). These is one of the few anime whose hype is actually warranted!

It seems the 2nd season was announced during Animagic 2014 in Germany. According to the article, the anime is in "pre-production phase".

By the way, during the Q&A session with George Wada, aside from the announcment of the second season and him saying that Ymir x Christa really are a couple (which has to be taken with a grain of salt, since he is not Isayama), there have been some other interesting facts as well:
  • When producing the first season, the first episode took about 6 months to produce, but the following episodes only took 6 weeks of time.
  • The anime was inspired by Spider Man and Pacific Rim
  • For one year, Wada and Isayama met every 2 weeks to discuss details regarding the adaption
  • The design of the 3DMG was changed in the the anime, because Isayama appearantly didn't like his own early designs from the manga
  • Wada is convinced that the focus on action and the "attack on humanity from the outide"-setting are the reasons for AoT's success
  • The designs of the German environments in the anime were mostly taken from photographs, because the staff's budget was not high enough for a personal visit to Germany
  • Wada's favorite AoT character is Sasha (he also appearantly "loves" Inori from the anime Guilty Crown)
  • The reason for the general German setting and the German lyrics in the openings is due the fact that both Hajime Isayama, as well as the anime's series director Tetsurō Araki think that "Germany is cool"
  • According to Wada, Linked Horizon showed willingness to do the openings again in the 2nd season
  • Aside from stating that Ymir x Christa are a couple, Wada also confessed that he is "very interested" in Doujinshi that use this pairing
  • When Wada was asked what he thinks he himself would be in the world of Attack on Titan, he answered that he would produce anime even there (good luck doing that with Medival level technology, Wada!)
  • Regarding the recent anti-piracy-campaigns in Japan, Wada stated that he prefers that as many people as possible can see his works, however he would prefer if a system were possible, where people from all countries could see the series in their languages at the same time
  • Wada also admits that he often enjoyed watching "first impression videos" of Attack on Titan of non-japanese people on YouTube and similar platforms

lol, meanwhile animenewsnetwork STILL didn't post the news. Now see how people will claim that the announcment is BS, because it wasn't posted there.

Does anyone know if Hange's first name is Hange or Zoe? The English dub said it as Zoe Hange but isn't Zoe a common girls' first name?
