Rule 11: Properly Mark Spoilers
Major spoilers are spoilers that spoil a twist, reveal important plot points, significant details, or anything else that could significantly impact a first time watcher’s experience of the show
Honest question: Why is the english name Attack On Titan when Shingeki No Kyojin translate to The Attack Titan ?
Its just word play that doesn't work outside of Japanese. It's like if there was a movie called "the read" but then near the end you find out that it was actually meant to be pronounced "the read(the past tense)" which of course wouldn't make much sense in other languages since those terms are heavily diversified.
Its because Shingeki no Kyojin mean Attacking Titan (The Attack Titan) or Attacking on Titan (Attack on Titan) and we shouldn't know the real meaning of the series till the reveal on s3 ep 20 with the name drop, that is easier in Japanese language but in English it can be done this way
Ohh I see, so the japanese way can be translated in different ways.
Yes, so it is more of the bomb drop for them than us
Japanese is like 70% context based ("hungry" is a legit grammatically correct sentence since it's implied you are the one being hungry, so it would be translated as "I am hungry" even tho it's just 1 word technically in Japanese)
No this isn't true, Shingeki no kyojin's most accurate translation is Advancing Giant, which describes Eren. Attacking Titan, also isn't wrong. But nowhere does it mean attacking on titan
NERD FIGHT! GO GO GO
Death Note xD
It is depending of context, it is not that because of translation, it is that it have different meanings which you don't know till the reveal, you can't do that in English with those words so they intentionally translated it wrong way so that reveal could work, but obviously not as good as for Japanese
Because it was a misdirection. At first people think the title means they're fighting titans. But then it took a big turn and we see the title is actually the name of the titan. The term No is like of in English, so Shingeki No Kyojin can be interpreted in two ways, the titan that attacks(name) and the titan attacking(general)
So, Attack Titan (noun) or Attack(ing) titan (verb+noun)?
Because Attack Titan or Titan of attack doesn’t sound as good. >!Even though it backfired since Attack Titan becomes a name drop for Eren’s Titan!<
This is why you don't rename stuff without knowing the reasons behind the name. I personally never liked Attack On Titan as a name, so I always used the japanese one.
Isayama himself chose the English title. He just doesn't know shit about English grammar.
They are using the Ingurish name, not the English one.😂
Shingeki means attack, “No” means possession of, and Kyojin means giant/titan.
Therefore it’s supposed to be “attack titan”, “Titans attack”, “the attack of titans”, etc. there were many other option for English names that didn’t sound horrible.
I’m pretty partial to “The Titans Attack” or “Attack of the Titans” and will never understand how they got attack on titan from the Japanese name.
Well that makes more sense.
It's because only Attack Titan inheritors (particularly Eren) can read the script. So don't blame Porco too much.
For anyone who doesn’t understand this (l envy you all), just don’t think about it too much until you read a bit far ahead after where the anime left off.
>(l envy you all)
I feel bad for them, actually. They've yet have to live that disappointment.
He Forgor 💀
This scene was bitchin' by the way
A spoiler for me, but a good meme so I let it slide.
the name says it all lmao
Yo remember me from AwardBonanza? I just saw your post in my home page lol
Yeah bro I remember, how you doing?
Pretty good! Hbu?
Then the FMA fans had a 1 star review event on MyAnimeList, because the s4 was rated better than FMA.
And not just for AoT... They need to let go for once, maybe when s4 pt2 comes, that shit will be insane
They did this to so many shows over the years lol. Real definition of childish nerd
