It's 1 AM. I've been kicking around an idea for a Giant Bomb/Attack on Titan mashup all day, and I've been meaning to learn how to edit video. Once my infantile brain was set on this project, there was no turning back. I'd like to return to this some day when I know enough about video editing to make it resemble the Attack on Titan opening, but I'm happy with it for now!

Also, I would like to credit the person behind this Giant Bomb 'Power' video for unintentionally helping me with this incredibly dumb project.

This made my Fucking day. I love Giant Bomb fans so much.

Edit: For those who've never heard of Attack on Titan

Here's the Show's intro as well. Speaking as someone who hasn't regularly watched anime in years, I think the show is awesome. In fact, I heard about here on Giant Bomb.com. Maybe you've heard of it.

Atomic humor!

Actually, we do! One of the perks of our language is that, like English, we can use kanji as prefixes and suffixes to modify the meanings of base words in certain situations. Thus, plain old bomb, 爆弾 (bakudan) can become a Giant Bomb with just one additional character, becoming 大爆弾 (oobakudan). Words with similar meanings can naturally just be achieved by combining adjectives and nouns, too, but it's more fun to use a straight up noun that has the descriptor baked in.

This has been your facetiously serious Japanese lesson for the day. :3

I think it's weirder to see Vinny wearing glasses. Having a slightly larger tuft of hair on top of his head is sorta different, but the glasses really change the impact his face has and he hasn't worn them on camera for a long time.

GIantbomb FMV wins the year, this is awesome. The amount of material used is astounding, great work duder. I still haven't seen the anime, but I've been reading the manga for a while and man... just wait and see.
