The only long form anime/manga/thing I've enjoyed since I was 10 and reading Shonen Jump is Berserk.
AoT seemed to have similar grim sensibilities and grotesque, frightening enemies so I decided to give it a shot. I've finished 6 episodes and man... this is an anime.
I just can't get over some of the things that seemed to have utterly ingrained itself with in most anime. Just, main character yelling ridiculously whenever he gets upset about his goals, several times each episode. Stuff like that. I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about.
Also, titans only being killable by slicing off a piece of their neck is pretty dumb. Even dumber that they don't reveal that for several episodes.
