The whole flaming titan thing was weird, and the part where annie was climbing the wall, something key that happened in the manga didn't happen there, so I wanna see what happens with that.

I wouldn't know about the manga stuff yet; I've only just started reading it last night and I'm currently at the part where Pixis and Eren's gang are ontop of the wall, talking about Eren's former home basement and how it could hold the secret to winning against the Titans (right before Pixis' speech)
So also dunno if "Flamin'-Eren" is in the manga or not, but it was definitely an awesome sight in the anime, and definitely symbolic of at least one thing.

if you watched after the credits of episode 25, you would see that it did happen

so, I saw the titan looking through the hole, but i don't get why its important.
Is it because he saw what happened?

It's a pretty big thing in the manga. Like, the way it's perpetuated in the anime completely passes the way it's handled in the manga. Basically everyone sees the crack and goes all ******* over the fact that the wall is alledgedly made out of ******* TITANS

The anime just kind of shrugs it off. I hope they do something with it in season 2.

Eh, I liked it. I've watched Neon Genesis Evangelion, and whilst it remains in my favorite anime list, I absolutely hated Shinji Akari, and for the same reason: but he's worse than Eren. Shinji can be the biggest badass in the whole series, but he'd rather sit in his cockpit and cry like a baby while a whole city is being destroyed.
Mmk.
Granted, he IS young, but I would've thought he would mature through everything.
So going from watching Shinji Hoping you've watched NGE at this point, derp on my part.. and then going to Eren, it was more likeable to me, how he would instantly realize "****. I'm messing up." it made me feel he had the capacity to quickly adjust to a situation and mature even quicker, both of which are entirely called for considering his circumstances, along with Humanities circumstances. I totally get where you're coming from though, cause I think I might've been thinking the same thing had I not watched other anime characters go full on wuss for a few episodes, while I sit in my chair and cringe...

Personally I thought it was really slow for the first few episodes so I stopped watching, but then I gave it another chance and got hooked.

Ehhh yeah I can see your point, the first parts (after Ep. 1 at least) are kind of slow, but I didn't mind at all because, as slow as it was, it gave us a chance to connect with the characters slightly as they all went through training and stuff.

I loved it through and through. When the anime is no longer being made, or even nearing the end, I'll read the manga. I really want to experience the anime as it is so that I have a more organic experience with it. That's just me.

I couldn't do that to be honest with you. I like reading more than watching (I dunno why, it's just a thing with me, blame my grandmother for introducing me to books when I was super young) and cause I want to see where everything goes after the wall crumbles.

Don't get me wrong, I'm quite the reader myself. I started buying the Hellsing Manga before episode V-VIII were dubbed. Hell I'm reading the Higurashi manga and I haven't seen a lick of the anime. However AoT is just one instance where I'd rather watch before I read. Like I said, that's just me.

Ahhhh I see, makes sense. To be honest with you, it's not a bad choice at all; I've been reading the manga lately (haven't read too much though because I've gotten the chance to play TES IV: Oblivion for the first time and I've been addicted to it for the past few days...) and really, the anime followed the manga REALLY well, some parts in the anime that I don't see in the manga, but that's most likely filler for more overall screen-time, or to add an added effect.

Yes. And from what I've heard, episode 25 was different from what the manga did (much to the chagrin of some manga readers..... one on here in particular who wouldn't shut up about it). And good for playing Oblivion. I got it 2 years ago and I really should beat it at some point since I had to restart adn I'm only level 4. on my last game,I got to level 10.

I haven't gotten to that part yet so I have yet to see, but I haven't heard anything about it being TOO different.. I really don't think I'd mind it though. The manga is spectacular, and so is the anime, but I've never really understood why people get upset when the anime deviates from the story a little (when previously it followed very well.)
I've heard stuff about that whole "Flamin-Eren" thing; if it's not in the manga, it sure as hell was an extremely entertaining and energizing thing to watch on the anime, my brother and I both had our jaw's drop to the floor like a silly cartoon when that happened, and it was a wonderful visual appeal that (if you want to starting using even more brain cells and think about things deeply) has a kind of symbolic meaning to it.
And yeah; Oblivion is a blast to play, I haven't even started on the main quest-line yet, I've just been dicking around doing random stuff, atm I think I'm about level 10, have an almost-full set of Mithril armor (I have an enchanted chainmail torso piece) with Elven weaponry and an enchanted bow. I think I'll go start on that quest-line now, I'm curious to see the story to be honest..

Your'e doing a lot better than me at Oblivion. And yeah, some people expect all anime adaptations to be 100% loyal when, in reality, they aren't. The closest thing I've seen to a perfect adaptation is Hellsing Ultimate, and even then they change certain dialogue pieces and they shift some events around. However it's still quite accurate over all. Besides, anime adaptations can fix some issues in the manga. I saw the manga version of Eren's fight with Annie and it was, honestly, a bit underwhelming. From what I hear, Eren just kind of accepts this and fights here, whereas the anime really built it up. I've yet to read the rest of the manga so I won't judge it all, but that one segment I'll say is, in my opinion, better in the anime.

I tend to get lucky with games like this, I'll play through it again and completely fall flat on my face... I think it's also cause I love to explore. A quest just had me walk from point A to point B and it took me a few hours to arrive cause I got sidetracked by caves, ruins, forts, and shrines...
And I agree; I haven't seen any anime adaptation of a manga where it is completely accurate. There's also the thing where an anime adaptation of a manga is typically done to get more recognition for the manga, and thus gain more of a fanbase + profits, so an anime will deviate to adjust to what they think the audience will love and draw them in. Even if it infuriates people who fall in love with a series. Such as FMA, even if their reasoning was acceptable. And if not that, then to add an acceptable atmosphere to the show, to better portray the emotions and thoughts (or the reverse) of the characters.
I haven't heard/seen anything on the fight between them, at the moment I'm right up to the part where Annie got captured for the first time (by the way... the scene was MUCH more spectacular in the anime, in the manga it was also really cool but since, you know, you get to see the shots being fired from the barrels, get to hear Ervins voice shouting the command, all that jazz, the anime one was much better)

Sorry for typing so much. I really like words and expanded ideas
The difference doesn't bother me at all though. The anime and manga versions of AoT are both incredibly well done, a little differences here and there never hurt anyone. The way the wall crumbles in Ep. 25 was perfect in the way it was done, because it was done right at the ending, just as the music reaches it's ending, and a mere few breaths before the episode itself ends. Those who hadn't read the manga to know that there could be Titans inside the walls (like my brother and I) were left going
"Wait...
Did we see that right? Was that real?"
It was done that way specifically because the anime's season 1 was ending: To leave all the fans of the series wide-eyed, speculative, and wanting more to come.
Not to crap on your opinion; I do see your viewpoint, it can be frustrating with a little deviancy I guess, I just think that the differences between the manga and the anime's that exist were done for good reason, and did what they were supposed to do: add an effect to what the audience is experiencing.

i understand your perspective too i can see that but i watch and read so it gets a little dissapointing but animes usually do mix things up from the manga. but still it was a good episode and cant wait till season 2 and chapter 51

Same, season 2 is something I can't wait for.
I will rage the rage the magnitude of a thousand suns if the second season is not made and/or cancelled

Ehhhh I'm kind of feeling the same way, kind of not. Since I started with the anime, and it turned out to be a way to connect more with my brother, if season 2 were cancelled it would still be a disappointment.
Just not as much of one, now that I'm reading the manga. So as long as that goes on, I won't be too saddened.
