I think a few people have expressed a dislike for the fire titan thing. I've also seen different people talk about liking it.
To me, in and of themselves the flames are a minor thing like random explosions in an action movie. I've told some people before: in my case it's not so much the fire itself as the symbolism behind it that bothers me. Eren's flames lump him in with the fire titans of Norse mythology (as Beatrice mentioned); the ones who broke the walls to bring about Ragnarok. That should be the colossal titan symbolism, not Eren's.

Hey all, I just wrote about learning from the anime adaptation of Titan: http://www.mangatherapy.com/post/628...-of-adaptation
I was wondering what did everyone think of the adaptation as a whole. It's funny because it makes me think about how we gotta keep adapting, but not necessarily let it become conforming.
With Isayama's intentions, it's good to see that he wants to do something new in the future and not be defined by just Attack on Titan.
What do you guys think about the story with the miner who tried to dig underneath the wall? Does this story come from Isayama or did the studio made that up? I got a bit afraid, that they might produce their own end of the story based up on that D: Turns out they didnt... yet ^^''
Well, after seeing episode 25, I'll say one thing: don't judge a manga by its animated version.
You know I read your article, and I still am not sure how you mean "adapting but not conforming." Adaptation of an artistic work from one medium to another is kind of like translating from one language to another. There are unlimited "standards" people could theoretically to conform to in terms of how to go about "translating" it, or alternatively they could make up a new one on the spot. So to which "standards" do you refer when you talk about people "conforming?"
(And as long as we're not talking going into spoilers/details of the manga, let's keep this in the anime thread.)

have no Idea if thats what he meant but it kind of makes sense.
so my guess is we'll be waiting a year or so for a season 2? I am highly anticipating the next season and how they will animate the next epic story arcs because the ones to come are my most favorite. If anyone has any idea how long we'll have to wait for the next season let me know.
I know season 2 isn't officially guaranteed, but as far as I see it, it's as good as guaranteed because it would be real stupid for any company to discontinue an anime this successful.This anime has surpassed many popular animes such as Naruto, in various websites and articles.
That being said, if we do want to keep hopes on season 2 coming, everyone please support the anime/manga! buy the manga's, soundtracks, posters and figures. That way we can let them know that this anime will be a continued success ! :P
Last I heard, we're still waiting for word on season 2 being green lit, but yes at least a year most likely. :')
i just hope the same team who made the anime this time around work on the next season if/when (most likely when because its so popular) it gets green lit.
I'd like to see how they'll handle the next story arc. As I recall
Hope that makes sense.

Oh I see. I don't recall any references to story content (like events with Annie and Armin, as leiatte mentioned) or an in-depth discussion of how this theme works with the overall story, so I had no idea.
