Enter the best show ever: Shingeki no Kyojin.
Let me put it this way… If you can sit through the first episode of this show without your heart on the verge of pounding out of your chest, then there is something seriously wrong with you, and the killer thing is, we didn’t even get to the good shit.
Like the huge twists.
And the BAM moments.
And the actual flying-through-the-sky-totally-kick-ass fighting.

I can’t say but holy fuck this was awesome. Rarely do I think that an anime is better than a manga (I’m looking at you Date A Live), but Shingeki no Kyojin might end up crushing it’s manga counterpart (which I admit, I’ve fallen far behind on). It helps that the budget for this show seems to be an immeasurable amount, based on the quality of the art and fluidity of the animation. Production ID does it again in terms of being fucking awesome. What’s really good is that they manage to pull off the horror even without showing the gruesome tearing of flesh that the manga so eloquently displays. Would the gore have made this better? Probably a bit, but I’m totally fine as is.
The one thing that sucks about this show? I want more. Now. FUCKING NOW. Shingeki no Kyojin is a rarity in that it’s a show PACKED as full as it can be with everything that makes a show awesome. Character development? Oh trust me, that’s happening. Amazing production we already talked about. How about drama? Slam dunk. One episode in we’re treated to the grim reality of life and death. Action and adenaline? This show’s got it by the bagful and after 2 episodes, we haven’t even gotten started with the action. What you’ve seen so far is almost like a preview. A short introduction. A calm before the storm.
Yeah, so far Shingeki no Kyojin is calm compared to what’s coming. Get ready for a fucking hurricane (mixed with 60 tornadoes, 8 monsoons, 13 blizzards, and 59 lightning storms).
FUCK I CAN NOT WAIT FOR EPISODE 3… AND 4… AND 12. I bet 12 is where the SOOGI@#(U(U$(*#$@()FJ will happen.
WATCH THIS IMMEDIATELY.
