Why does /a/ hate Attack on Titan so much?

I might have a biased opinion since I read the manga long before anime was conceived, but on the other hand I do think the anime is not as good as the manga, while i still watched it because well, it's an enjoyable manga animated, regardless.

But there seems to much hate and disdain for it, is it because it's become a popular mainstream anime, or the actual stereotyped fan bases.

I will admit the story can be quite convoluted sometimes, and some characters in the anime really piss me off, but overall it's an okay manga/anime... Not nearly the best but I think /a/ gives it much less credit than it deserves, i'd rather watch Attack on Titan than other generic shonen or slice of life anime, that much I can say.

Eren is a bitch though I will admit, he's basically Shinji except instead of "Shinji get in the fucking Robot" It's "Erin get in the fucking Titan"

they just couldn't understand the depth of the boulder arc.

You're over thinking things, /a/ hates it because it's popular, pretty much the same thing as KLK, OPM and Gurren Lagann.
Also, the fanbase sucks as expected.
>>
Because it sucks
>>
>>135040394
Eren is a fucking bitch.
>>
lol, i'm actually up to date with the manga, but it's easy enough to say the anime actually skips a lot of content, and detail that adds to story... Understandable when you have to compress it into 20-30 minute episodes but still they don't do justice.

I actually thought the manga gets better after Annie frozen, and the Ape Titan Appears, which hasn't even been touched upon since it apparently takes 3 years to come out with a new attack on titan anime season.
>>
>>135040532
I wouldn't say that /a/ hates OPM or Gurren Lagann, if anything I'd consider them to be /a/'s guilty pleasure.
>>
>>135040532
most of the fanbase is trash i'll admit, but the anime is not bad, and the manga is a lot better. Again nothing god tier, but it's not bad, not like a lot of other animes.
>>
I had fun watching it but it was directed pretty badly, the cast had no chemistry together. 7.5/10.
>>
wait /a/ started hated gurren lagann? I thought it was beyond their reach? I knew they hated KLK because the common "it doesn't compared to gurren lagann" argument.
>>
>>135040394
>i'd rather watch Attack on Titan than other generic shonen or slice of life anime
I don't mind if you like SnK, but saying you'd rather watch SnK than SoL is really just bad taste.
>>
>>135040660
and they don't till later in the story, i won't spoil it, but the characters kinda branch off into their own, and their personalities are explored more, like Krista and Ymir....

...Even Sasha and the other minor characters eventually have much more to them than the anime first season gives off, i hope when they do release it they follow the manga direction more.
>>
It couldn't be that the pacing was atrocious as hell, the action was bad or that they are the Titans is fucking retarded.
>>
>>135040394
The first few episodes were okay. The animation style is unique.

At about the halfway point I lost interest, and the amount of people who are hyped up about something so mediocre is obnoxious.

On the other hand, One Punch Man remained interesting all the way through and the animation is top notch. No TV series in the past 2-3 years has come close.
>>
>>135040699
No actually fuck you, I was on /a/ before SoL cancer/facism overtook this board. You're cancer.

mikasa and eren are fucking awful characters, and its visually repulsive

>i'd rather watch Attack on Titan than other generic shonen or slice of life anime
what? it is generic shonen
>>
>>135040748
no that's because the anime studio was handicap about how they portrayed it... lets take batman for example... how many god damn batman movies are there, most of them are shit...

The studio that handled the anime adaption did it poorly, but at the same time i forget most of people on /a/ now dont read manga so you havent seen SnK past the anime which is, what... 2/10 of the entire manga?....

Anime has poor reputation, not because it's bad is my point, but because the studio that handled it is handicap.

I started reading the manga just to see why people liked it so much and i reached the conclusion that people nowadays like thrash.
Well, let me explain: the concept is pretty good but the plot seems to have lots of holes and it's hard to keep up with it.
Maybe the author should be clearer about the past events, you know, by actually explaining things and not throwing things casually

yes, except that /a/ also goes overboard, and apprently an anime that only 1,000 people have heard of is the best anime ever.... *sigh*

Why do manga and LNfags always try to blame adaptations for a series being shit?

That has no effect on people who only watch the adaptation. Major plot points, story, and characters aren't any different. It just bothers you because of trivial details that were either left out or altered and you dislike it by comparison. It's not like if the overall concept and events were "just a tiny bit better" I would not have dropped it.

No, I think Kill la Kill was decent but was missing the element that made Gurren Lagann such a hype watch, especially towards the end. Which is what people wanted from Imaishi.

Because when considering anime as a whole, Attack on Titan is pretty mediocre and not too noteworthy.

Yet for some reason, everyone and their grandmother watches this show, out of all the anime in existence, when there are undoubtedly objectively better shows.

Basically, /a/ hates Attack on Titan because normies give too much attention to a show that isn't deserving of it when there is far better stuff out there that was ignored. /a/ hates Attack on Titan because it is a literally a memeshow that became popular not because of quality, but because of viral word of mouth; because it became a trending topic by circumstance alone.
>>
>>135040394
Explain why you like the manga more than the anime. It's a pet peeve of mine how often people make this claim about adaptations without backing up their opinion. Usually when it's a manga people will say the artwork is better but in this case the mangaka is a noob and his art blows.

Half of my favorite anime are mainstream.

Gurren Lagann, Black Lagoon, Fate/Zero, Steins;Gate, Madoka, Kaiji/Akagi, Disappearance of Haruhi, Ashita no Joe, Kill me Baby, Haiyore Nyaruko, Jormungand, Monogatari, Binbougami Ga, GTO, Mahoromatic, Nazo No Kanojo X

I generally liked OPM before the anime, I read the webcomic, and manga a few years before it was announced, and I was even a bit excited for the anime. But the amount of people who spam it like it's the second coming of the Pastafarian monsters and refuse to believe people might like something more than it really drag down the show as a whole. It becomes associated with those faggots.

you just illustrated the exact reason why people do this, because EVERY anime released in the last 10 years is shit, and every GOOD Manga that gets adapted to anime is ASSUMED to be the 2nd coming of a god anime, and then when their expectations OBVIOUSLY dont meet expectation they hate on the entire anime/manga, it's the same cancerous pattern that has engulfed /a/ for like 5 years, im literally leaving /a/ forever after tonight, and i wont miss it which is why im just trying to start a big shitwar.

What /a/ doesn't realize is that you can not like something, like an anime, and that thing still be "good". It can just not be your taste and that is fine, but it can still be a good anime. AoT is a good anime. It was really successful for a reason. For myself, I'm not overly interested in it, but I won't bad mouth it.
Also /a/ is full of faggot hipsters who will hate something because it is popular and watched by a crowd that doesn't usually watch anime.
