If they do a reversible cover this should be it.

Welcome to the team Dan and Jason. Can't wait for the increased fighting game and wrestling coverage!

Finally watched it, not sure why I was so afraid of spoilers because CENAWINSLOL

A lot of cool spots (that ladder tripod was amazing), and Randy deserves props for finishing the match while bleeding to death. I don't know what it was but the whole thing where everyone was taking turns going up the ladder near the end bugged me. I know it happens a lot but I don't know.

There were a lot of decent matches but overall the show seemed to drag hard between the ladder matches. That's probably due to the first one being so great.

I'm telling myself I'm done, but after I get home from work tonight I might feel the itch again.

Krazy predictions

1. John Cena will attempt to throw a ladder at someone and fuck up the spot

2. Bryan will compete in the title match and win it.

3. Someone will be hanging from the belts and Roman Reigns will jump off a ladder and superman punch them.

This was amazing.

That poster gives me hope that Cena won't win. Cena/Lesnar doesn't need the belt right?

Wait, shit. That's their "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RESUBSCRIBE" show. Fuck.

People hoping Stardust is a temporary thing are insane, I can't stop watching this.

Finally watched the second half of Attack on Titan. Lots of great action sequences, but it sucks that there weren't any real answers by the end of it. Now I'm wondering about whether or not to read the manga. Anyone here read it?

I do. Even though I'm a couple chapters behind, I will be able to read them by the time you ask me something. So, what do you (don't) want to know?

Is there a sufficient amount of answers dolled out throughout the story? Does it look like the series can be finished in 20 volumes? That's what I've read the author wants to do. Lastly, is it consistently good?

I'm reading it now, up to date. They can probably finish the series in the 80 or so chapters they are gunning for (currently on 58). For every answer they give two more questions pop up. I personally think that everything that the story they are trying to tell is a mess, but they seem to be reeling it in a bit.

Been reading the manga before the anime aired. I tend to mostly agree with @recspec. The beginning is pretty good. The plot does go sideways (don't you dare ask me about that dammed basement) from my point of view. Basically the story is fine and that's about it.

Oh, if your planning on reading the manga @aegon you could start on chapter 33 "The Wall" (it was where the anime ended) if you'd like as the anime altered the ever living hell out of that fight. I was rather impressed by the anime though since it was 90% faithful to the manga, which is why someone who's only seen the anime could jump straight in at 33 and not feel lost or confused.

I thought you wanted to know something specific, @aegon. Ah well.

I feel like the manga set an end goal (the basement) early on and as time went on, things wedged in between the now and that end goal. They answer questions but in return you will have even more questions. The story is more convoluted than it was initially but it's consistent about it and overall enjoyable.

And it is possible to finish the story in 20 chapters. Whether it will be a good ending or not, that is another question.

A question to the other two gents: what happened to the monkey titan? He seemed to be intelligent enough to coordinate something big. What is he doing while the coup is happening?

He's probably going to be the ultimate final enemy, my guess is that he's directly tied to whatever's in the basement. Mainly because he's Eren's father. But goddamn his introduction was goofy as hell.
