I'm not a big fan of the monthly release but some stories are told better this way. I'm not sure if I would like to read Shingeki weekly because I don't know how well Isayama would be able to cope with it. Glad you started watching though
P.S: Indeed, they are.
I mostly agree with you regarding the spoiler but I'm a bit meh towards
I should have waited a month with reading the manga. I always catch up to manga in the middle of something big. Can't I ever catch up with a series when nothing really is happening and I am not hyper excited? Next chapter will be SO KEY.
Yeah I noticed e.g. ep 3 & 4 regarding the training was earlier. A nice touch IMO. Regarding the rest I wouldn't know, as I haven't read the first chapter (ep 1-5 chapters) yet. I could do that.
I thought it was a good change too, it works both ways. If you're curious you should read them, a good way to get rid of time until the next chapter :P Just as an example, you don't see the Armored Titan running towards the gate. In the manga, you only see him when he actually breaks the wall. A change for the better too, in my opinion. I felt like it was a really epic and breathtaking anime only scene.
And I suppose I should ask you... interested in playing a Mafia Game in a few days?
I meant in general. Really, usually my excitement is pretty high to begin with whenever I catch up with a series. Being in the middle of something epic just makes it more painful (but at the same time obviously more amazing).
I will probably read the chapters sometime.
Also I've said "no" to several people approaching me about the Mafia Game. Just don't feel like it this time around. What's the theme?
Sorry for being so late with this reply Claire, it always takes such a lot of time to answer you I don't mind but I had a lot to do this week (and other short posts started to pile up....) so that's why it took some time.
I guess I should take a closer look at the Yen when I start working and start to save some when it's weak. And thanks for asking your mum, I will keep the tips and the site in mind!
And what do you mean with indulge a little more?
I read that Canada had/has a lot of german emigrants so you probably have a lot of canadians with german ancestry over there. Just out of curiosity, what are their surnames?
If you want some really famous old works, you should check out "Die Leiden des jungen Werthers" or "Faust", both were made by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. I'm not a big fan of both but you can't deny their quality, especially considering the time.
Yep, I definitely speak differently. Hochdeutsch is the common form in germany, without any dialect. A lot of people speak either Hochdeutsch or some kind of dialect. The dialect is bound to cities or whole regions but here in Frankfurt most speak Hochdeutsch. At times pretty much everyone uses some kind of dialect though, f.ex. when I speak to certain friends I tend to speak "Hessisch" sometimes Austrian and Swiss german varies a lot too, it depends on the region. Some only use a slight dialect, while you can't even understand others despite speaking the same language. It's hard to summarize because there are a lot of different forms.
And I guess I became more outgoing because I got to know a lot of great people over the years + as a mod I always felt/feel the responsibility of having to take good care of my sections. It's a fun responsibility though, don't misunderstand me. Even after all these years I really enjoy being here :3
If I had to describe myself.... I guess I'm neither the social type nor introverted and shy but a mix of both. It really depends. When I feel comfortable I can be quite outgoing (like here on MH) but when I meet new people I'm usually rather silent. Not afraid or anything but I always need some time to open up to people, I'm not someone who can be friendly and outgoing with everyone right from the start. When I know people better I'm a lot more open but there are only a few people to whom I show my real self. With that I don't mean I'm pretending to be someone else with others but rather that I only show 60% or 70% of my true self. That's either because the opportunity for more doesn't come up or because I just don't wanna show everything because of various reasons (like lacking trust or something similar). So to sum things up, I guess I'm somewhere in the middle of extroverted and introverted. I guess the best example is when I hang out with a certain friend, who's really outgoing, and we meet up with some other guys. He usually takes the lead and speaks the whole time, which leads to me saying less. When he's not around though, I'm just as open as the most of the other guys though. I'm not someone who's eager to lead a group of friends but I do when I notice others don't. I guess that describes me best XD though it's so hard to describe oneself, so I guess you should just make your own choice when we meet
So how about you? Introverted or Extroverted?

Thought so, I'm not that eager myself but I was nice enough to volunteer as the host The theme is "Tower of God", a manhwa. Great series but I'm sure you haven't read it yet. IIRC you are rather meh towards the so called webtoons but you're definitely missing something good.
I'm not meh towards it. I am just not a big reader/watcher anymore in general. It usually is something special when I finally get into reading/watching manga/anime these days.
I've read Noblesse like a year ago, but after catching up I haven't checked it out since.
Tower of God is so different and way, way better than Noblesse. I mean the bishie vampires story is entertaining and all but ToG has such a superb story. Obviously it has it flaws (which series don't, though) so I daresay you should check it out to see what a webtoon is capable of. There's a reason why it has long surpassed Noblesse in popularity.

I got my well-deserved A in english today
Congrats for the A!
What's next? World domination?
Yeah I don't doubt ToG is better. Noblesse's plot is after all rather bad. Rescue mission after rescue mission. Same formula, noobs fight first then Rai comes in the last second to save the day and utterly humiliate the bad guys. The concept is pretty interesting however, with the lore and all.
Grats on your A too.
