yup, eren in the manga is pretty awesome.
anyone watched the first episode of the english dub? i did and quite liked it. it was sometimes unvoluntarily funny (hannes!) but the most important parts they nailed... i've nothing to complain about there. some dialogues were slightly changed; kids are sassier (yeah, even mikasa). armin's such a little shit, on one hand, yeah, it's pretty bad his characterization slightly deviates from the original, on the other - i had a ball.
and erwin has a higher voice and sounds younger than in the japanese version, but, lord, that suits him. i can't wait for episodes with him (and his screams!
damn he's gonna sound damn sexy in this version.
Takeru casually solo'd what's like the Equivalant of 23 Colossal Titans, 48 20+m Titans and countless 5m Classes without even being touched by them in about 3 minutes.
No literally, they weren't able to touch him.

Oh no I lost track and thought I replied already. I'm so sorry I apparently didn't! OTL
I suppose they didn't have enough time to present everything from training and that's probably why they moved most of the training squad flashbacks earlier than they are in the manga. (At the same time it feels like they gave Jean extra time in the anime with the three or so filler scenes he got.)
Fellow manga readers can correct me if I'm wrong but here are what I remember as filler scenes for Jean:
• the infamous "running around exposed to the titans in Trost with no 3dmg" scene
• Jean and Armin talk it out in the last episode in Stohess over Eren not being able to transform
• Jean and Armin hanging out while Eren is in bed recovering
Can anybody else remember any other such added-in scenes?

They wanted to make Jean look polished and shiny hero who joined the SL to save Humanity because it's his duty, while in the manga it felt more like "the only guy having a decent opinion of me died, frak it, what can I do?".
EDIT: I totally missed the fact that it was Jean's fillers only in your quote, it's 1 AM, let's say I'm forgiven for that, okay?
Were Eren's flashbacks in the 1st episode canon?

I'm in episode 4 and many things are becoming clearer in the anime than the manga...
Great observation Annie pointed out (which, I guess, I missed in the manga)....
Why is there a system in place in which the soldiers most capable of fighting the titans given the option to never see them again??!!
The more I go into this, the more this kingdom looks like some controlled cage of sort...
Such as? Presentation is certainly clearer and it's very useful at the beginning-- just wondering if there's specific content you mean?Quote:
Indeed! Yes, I'm pretty sure that was touched on multiple times in the manga. It was the main reason Jean wanted to join the MPs (which is also in the anime).Quote:

Watched the 2nd OVA only today, and WTF is that??? XD
Really a masterpiece of no-sense stuff but a really nice ~10 minutes of fun for a SnK otaku like me ^^
And watche the 3rd OVA too. Really boring... Better if they make LOL stuff like the 2nd than this annoying filler. Well, the ending with Marco words touched me a little... But nothing more.
Any news about the 2nd season till now?

2nd season in 2016, yay?
2016...There will be several chapters to adapt, it could be more than a 2-cour series I think.
Wtf, that's too far...They'll have so much material to adapt. Unless they're going for more than 25 episodes.
Perhaps they made this decision because of the movies that are supposed to come out? There's a LA and an animated movie I think. The anime could overshadow these two projects.
2016.. you serious!? No way.. that is just too long.. totally not cool. Well yeah, I can complain about it ,but that doesn't change a thing. If that's what they decided than we can't do nothing about it, can we? It is how it is.
