Well, as I said, we'll see how it turns out.
What appealed to me is the more original spin on the story world. Sure it might be typical shonen, sure it's got hashed slurs and damsels in distress. And while the whole demon/vampire/wereworlf/ghost concept has been done to death, it manages to keep things interesting.
But why I liked that story world is that it seems more dystopian and surreal than other demon worlds I've seen. (Most demon lands are post apocalyptic, misty hells that wear too much goth make up. *Read: Gag* This one is painted in lighter, brighter colors and is for the most part, strangely underpopulated. Which makes it seem a bit on the off and creepy side to me.
That aside, I think someone mentioned Free on here a while back (the swimming one) and I've been watching that. I can't tell if it's trying to be homo or not, or if this is just typical shojo eye candy fare. It's more than slightly annoying, seeing mostly muscles for twenty minutes a week. But it's nicely animated (unless of course it's just typical-shojo animated) and since I happen to be a swimmer myself, I'm sticking around for mild interest. (It's pretty outrageous, let me tell you.)
Apparently Attack on Titan is hugely popular. Have you guys seen it? What was your opinion?
