    realistic character development (jean), mystery behind world of titans in general since all we were given is that mankind now lives in walls due to 107 years ago blah blah blah, possible political internal agenda regarding titans, and just a sense of mystery, doom, and wtfs everywhere.

    It reminded me of the standard zombie-horror scenarios.
    The thing is, we got used to zombies due to lots of references in the media. Now, the human (or inhuman) giants acting like zombies is FAR more scary.
    The whole idea of a strange creature eating humans is not new, but the fact that these creatures are not the dead corpses, but human-like beings that resemble a person is damn scary. Eating humans just for the sake of it, have a HUGE difference in brute strenght compared to humans, having a weak point that is incredibly hard to reach, overwhelming humans in numbers, this places this story on a whole different level.

    That's the point.
    SnK story is simply ORIGINAL.
    You can find other sci-fi horror/gore/zombie/monsters story but in SnK case you can say: "SAME PLANET BUT A DIFFERENT WORLD" if you can get it ;D

    Obv SnK can't miss some shonen stereotypes but they are quite a few and a lot less than in any other shonen I read.
    Also this is the reason cuz I HOPE that success (by Anime and merchandising) will never change the author mind about how to develop SnK story...

    I hope so too. Those few fanservice-y art already out make me rage. So I hope that the story doesn't go to crap.

    Well, I watched the Anime first and the desperate atmosphere and mystery caught me.
    I dont think the story will be very original in the end, I guess it willl be somethink like: Some(one) tried to become god, or are/is still trying.
    But it is fun thinking what else it could be and I hope it will be mind blowing.

    Oh and I really loved the scene where Erens guards, who all were extreme pros at surviving and fighting titans, just got killed off in an epic fight. no resurrection.
    Just like in Game Of Thrones u get attached to some characters and then they die.
