Do people only like this because it was one of the earliest manga to do something interesting?
It is too dated now.

I'm reading it for the first time right now. Just finished Conviction
Just after the fight with Zodd at Godo'sand I've gotta say...
The reason people love this is because it's so richly realized. The first arc is dark and gritty and more than a little edgy, but starting at the Golden Age and onward the whole series is filled with this amazing sense of scale. The escalation of actions, the passage of time, the growth of characters. It's all got an incredible sense of momentum, that the story is always in motion.
It's not only that, either. Every pivotal character, from Guts to Griffith to Zodd, and all the primary antagonist Apostles, they all have such complex characters. You see it in these threads all the time that "Griffith did nothing wrong," but even that is just an oversimplification of all the conflicting motivations of these characters. Characters like Rosine or Mozgus and his torturers, who can simultaneously be irredeemable villains, yet deeply sympathetic characters, because it was very human motivations that drove them to be what they are.
I've heard about The Boat, and Miura being an otaku piece of shit that basically abandoned the series for idolmaster, but where I am now in the manga, that hasn't set in yet. I was expecting, from both what I'd heard of the series and the beginning chapters, for this to just be BIG GUY WITH BIG SWORD BIG GUTS RIP AND TEAR and a dark fantasy world. I wasn't expecting this deepy, highly enriching story about ambition and revenge
Was this the biggest what the fuck moment in anime history?
>Draw a girl
>Call it a boy
Why do they do this?
That's what a "trap" is, a girl who is actually a guy. Or the reverse, a guy who is actually a girl. It's a play on expectations, though played so much that it's commonplace and just another archetype.
Haganai took it to another level by playing on our expectations of a girl actually being a guy, when she really was a girl all along.
Is she gonna kill herself?
What the fuck happened to him? He just disappeared.
