Whatever giant anime Shingeki no Kyojin lacks in controversy, service or moe, it evidently more than makes up for in bloody death and shocking storyline, with viewers amazed at its willingness to kill off key characters in only the 5th episode and “first battle”…

Unless the show really did get a “bad end” in only its 5th episode, fans have been left to wonder who their new protagonist is, and how many more of the unfortunates they will get through:

    read it from chap 4 or 5, hint everywhere about their true identities. Not just a twist in a whim.
    and more, that was not his mother, it was just a friend of them.

    03:31 that's the main change
    they put all the flashback first to give the author time and at the same time mantaining linear storytelling
    other than that, they're going as smoothly as expected
    (at least they didn't rotoscope the giants. imagine THAT)

    lol no only 1 gets 'resurrected' everyone else dies a horrible, miserable, gory death

    Berserk?I thought the anime had some resemblance but now ............Master gore level
    After this episode I ran to see the manga, I could not wait another week.
    Impressive as the two have in common at the end you are not become attached to any secondary CHARACTERS it may die in the next episode.
    Funny, the chronology of the stories from the manga and anime are very different.

    Huhuu imagine a BD uncut version will come with a free anti nausea remedy for the weak of stomach rsrsrs.......

    It's the KillEmAll trope. Seems to be a trend lately in all media. Guess it's a cheap way to keep the suspense.

    hahahahaha the author kills off people for a reason, and makes others look like they died as well, the comic truly is a great read tho.

    lol if people are shocked now, there is alot more to be had then....

    I am glad this is following closely to the manga, which I am disappointed that more is not out yet, love this serious (though gruesome, has good story and unique style)

    I think there will be a S2 out because the anime is following closely to the manga as you said and it's impossible to keep the whole story in only 25 episodes imo. Besides yet the manga isn't finished.

    I watched 2 episodes and stopped. I could see this was another sicko twisted author like Stephen King who likes bad endings! I hate bad endings so I would not watch this show at all!

    Really? The show was going for a real take on what would happen, there's no friendship power up here or any plot armor. PEOPLE. DIE. If you can't take that then by god GTFO of here and stay out.

    I read your comment and, for a second, I thought that I had already commented because that's exactly what I would have put. Except I could smell the Stephen King from the series description alone.

    Actually I don't really think the story is going for a bad ending, don't judge a book by its cover, even with constant death of characters, there are a great number of mangas where main or important characters are killed the moment you never expected, like Hughes in FMA.

    that took till 4 volumes in in the manga, and at best he was a supporting character, well done and sad he died, sure... but still side.

    till the final battle, did the manga have the manga kill a main character, or even a main ish character that was on the good side?, i cant remember.

    Well not everybody likes bad endings. There are too many of them irl. No need to increase their number by fiction ones too.

    Cowboy Bebop does not have a bad ending at all.
    It is a little bit sad but not bad at all.

    I like bad endings (like Cowboy Bebop) cuz they make the show more real, since real life always has a bad ending (death).

    Yeah. I prefer main character succeeding in doing what he/she determine to do.

    Bad ending kinda send a message of 'there are things that no matter how hard you try or determine, it never going to happen', thus lowering the viewer determination on pursuing real life things they wanted, afraid to take risk as it can be futile in the end.

    I watch anime for laugh, for shock, for sadness, for happy, for romance, for cool moment and not watching the main character tries very hard for 11 episode, only to get crushed badly in the end.

    He is perfectly fine.

    Kinda, except it seems like the author is taking a -lot- more risks with Eren than we ever saw with Edward. And personally, I like that.

    My hat's off to ya today, Japan. I didn't think you had it in ya'll to make something this amazing in this day and age. I'll definitely be giving the American DVD release of this my full support.
