@Kodos - I believe it can, since it still holds a large internet presence - particularly from a fanart point of view. Though it may be metaphorically "dead", it still gets dug up from time to time and poked at with sticks. Which is more than can be said for a lot of the less well known anime/manga series. Particularly series with more interesting development and considerably better coherence.
Nah, One Piece, Fairy Tail, maybe FMA haven't seen enough of that last one to really judge it.
Oh yeah, Dragon Ball went from a series with humour to a series with ridiculous amounts of testosterone.

this thread is like a giant collection of people with opinions worse than gunzet sheesh. anyway i have never really watched an anime i have felt was overrated; im not a member of the animu-lovin community so when i hear about animus its usually in passing or jaidurn will tell me to watch something (and he and i are basically the same person so everything he tells me to watch i kno i will love).
gonna have to disagree w/ u there on the whole character development thing. last time i checkedOriginally Posted by demonfyre
there are actually spoilers in here
also all yall sayin fma is overrated what r u even saiyan. same with dbz. thats the best shit man.
Thing is, this simply drills down to a matter of opinion. I’ve discussed Eren with several people and what annoys me about him is what many enjoy. He is flawed, which is good, but it just doesn't sway me - characters such as Walter White just pull it off better and in more interesting ways.
As for DBZ - it's just toilet humour, fight scene, reflection, training, and repeat. Not exactly filled with ground breaking substance.

we got guys comparing attack on titan to breaking bad itt
Pfft, walter white and eren are both crazy
My thoughts on a snack on titan (I read the manga. If the animu is different then idk):
I agree the character development is poor. It does what most manga does and relies on your understanding of archetypes to fast forward character development. Like when you see Levi you already understand he's the cool calculated badass guy, and maybe there's a quirk here or there but you're on the same level as the creator right away. I'm not saying that's good writing, but it's common enough that I've become desensitized to it.
I like the manga because it's a suicidal person's wet dream. It takes place in a world where you wonder why you would even want to be alive, and the only thing driving Eren is his hatred. He hates these mindless giant people that just wander around trying to fulfill their urges, and he wants to believe he's not like them but he literally is.
You work hard every day while the privileged sit safely in the center of the universe, and you want to think you're different from the people you hate when you're reminded every day that you're not. Every time you think things are going to get better, they somehow get worse. The little tiny victories suddenly seem much more important, and the only time you're really happy is when you're with your small group of friends.
The artist really needs to get better at drawing hands though.
