@DarkChaplain I plan to yes, Shingeki no Kyojin was on my high priority list since it was announced so I torrented both the RAW and sub today. It followed the first 1.5 chapters of the manga perfectly so I have high hopes.
I'm a huge fan of the manga, and I can already tell Shingeki no Kyojin will be Spring 2013's anime of the season. No other anime has the... complex plot that Shingeki has this season. (I won't spoil people but the manga gets so intense, and I really hope the anime will be 2-cours long.)
Like... yeah. Every poll and even Tumblr is really excited about this series. It was hyped from day 1 really. The manga's immensely popular, it outsold a lot of manga last year and in 2011. It surpassed the 10 million mark last year, which is really good for a manga of it's structure.
What I really like about Shingeki is that there's no gross sexism. As in, females characters have the same uniform and don't die in a oversexualized way. Oh, and they all have as complex emotions as the guys.
TL;LR as heck but I just REALLY freaking love this series.
PS: Oh and Mikasa's the best character ever.
