When Mio saw the boy she liked with another girl she
- ran sobbing down the hallway
-burst through a glass window
-ran into the middle of the street and did shadow boxing
-CARRIED AN OLD LADY ON PIGGY BACK WHILE RUNNING AND THEN SHE GOT OFF AND ROLLED AWAY
-ran between two speeding trains
-JUMPED INTO THE WATER AND RESCUED A DROWNING BOY WHILE POWER SWIMMING
sobbing the entire time
after which she got a commendation and was scouted by a boxer
and Yuuko followed her the whole way screaming her name
I now have a dream and it’s to do all that after being rejected by someone i like and have a girl friend who FOLLOWS AFTER ME SCREAMING MY NAME THROUGH IT ALL
this is the best comedy anime i’ve seen..!
did the anime add anything? the only thing i remember it adding is the scene with the ruler and pixis.
the part where Eren and Mikasa and Armin were stuck as refugees and Mikasa forced Eren to eat and when Armin is mourning and they all decide to join the military- I do think those scenes helped the pacing and understanding the situation a bit.
ijustlurkhere asked: So, sorry if you've talked about this before and I just didn't catch it, but how faithful is the Attack on Titan anime to the manga? It looks pretty cool so I'm considering reading/watching it, but if the anime isn't as close to 100% faithful as possible I'd prefer to read the manga first.
The anime is pretty damn faithful to the manga so far, actually! If anything, it’s better paced than the manga and definitely easier to understand at first. The manga has a habit of having shit happen and then explain why it’s important in flashback, which is disorienting and lessens the emotional impact in the first chapters while the anime makes the wise choice of making events more linear without really changing them and letting us get to know the characters at a normal pace. The animation and music is also gorg and with the art better than the manga and in color it’s easier to tell people apart- the anime even adds some details that help us understand the worldbuilding.
My one complaint with the anime is it made a lot of the character designs for the girls a lot more traditionally feminine/conventionally pretty, often with shiny pink full lips and long lashes. It’s not that it’s a terrible thing for girls to look that way, but it’s done in anime pretty much 100% of the time, so I’d prefer to keep with the manga’s more unconventional style- I like Mikasa’s design in the manga better for instance, it’s much more striking (weirdly, something a lot like her manga design is seen in the anime credits and it looks 10 TIMES HOTTER 2 ME)
So I’d recommend watching the anime (we just got to episode 7, it’s on crunchyroll) and by then if you’re anything like me you’ll get impatient and want to read the ENTIRE MANGA that’s been released and you can do that. Both are worth a look!
