    How convenient is Titan's (lack of) genitalia

    Don't you think it's way too convenient that Titans don't have pending sticks and bouncing balls while they run around?
    It's perfect to put on magazines, it's perfect to show on TV...

    Oh boy, the only reason why Titans don't have genitalia is because if otherwise, probably not a single magazine would have accepted publish it

    Gantz did it.

    I'm glad SnK doesn't, it also doesn't melt
    the clothes of Titan-shifters.

    Re: How convenient is Titan's (lack of) genitalia

    Yeah the real reason is probably because nobody would publish a manga like that lol.

    But the in-story reason, I think, is that titans seem to be purely killing machines. Remember they don't have boobs either, despite the facts about their origins revealed in the most recent chapters (and even earlier, with the "Dancing Titan").

    The only thing that doesn't fit into this is the Female Titan's boobs. Why is this I have no idea. Probably fanservice.

    The female titan´s chest is pure muscle.
    and a fact that she is far more aware and focused enough to maintain a huge similarity between herself and the outer shell as noticed.

    Re: How convenient is Titan's (lack of) genitalia

    This also reminds me of the last 2 South Park episodes
    which were a Game of Thrones periody a series that happens
    to be about a big wall protecting humanity from Supernaturals
    among many many other things.

    Though the did some injustice in portraying the author of a ASOIAF
    Butters at least can enjoy SnK in paper and video without
    weeners hanging all about.

    Real talk this would be a great strategy lol. Imagine how easy it would be to get the nape if the titan is bending over in pain. XD

    Re: How convenient is Titan's (lack of) genitalia

    ^^ OMG xD This thread is giving me serious Kill la Kill vibes now.

    Who wouldn't want to publish a manga where exhibitionist giants run around, just doing their thing.
    Pretty sure certain directors would totally be game.

    I can just Erwin leading a squad towards a group of titans and yelling "NUDIST BEEEEAAACH!!" .... ^^''

    Re: How convenient is Titan's (lack of) genitalia

    Well, it does help a lot in regards to publishing however it can't be said that the lack of organs have not been an important plot point in the manga. Titans don't have organs or reproduce, them lacking any evident form of reproductive organ adds to the mystery of their origin (as far as characters in the manga are concerned). Even if the idea was meant to make the manga easier to publish, the author has made this fit extremely well into the plot and context of the story so far. With the organs not having or needing organs it would barely even make sense for the titans to have such organs. No organs have the implication of no testicles.... And no organs also kinda has the implication of no urethra or reason for a penis.

    Gantz is seinen, SnK is shounen.

    We finally accept this level of blood gore and regard it as shounen, that's great, but there is a limit.
    If SnK has more boobs and testicles, then SnK maybe at risk on being treated as seinen.

    Genitalia = weak point. Apparently they have ass holes:
