Holy crap!! How the hell did this happen?
I knew AoT was good but didn't think it would be so good to topple Walking Dead. Glad to know that my first impressions of this manga when I first heard the webinar recommendation of it are now "null and void". I cannot wait to finish the first half of the anime series before I finish reading the rest. This is another winner for my shelves.

True, any show that can beat the freakin' Walking Dead is a winner in my books - I wonder how long it'll stay like that though

It got really popular on tumblr really quickly. Just shows you the power of kids communicating on social media.

This is good for manga companies. That means they will be willing to bring more titles over here. It's funny I live in BF nowhere Nova Scotia but my local Coles has Soul Eater, Naruto, Bleach and Titan. Show's it's popularity.

I think with Titan's popularity we might see a resurgence of anime in the north american market. I'd like to see more televised anime. And I think it will get Funimation to speed up a dub and get it out into stores.
