Hey there!
Anyone here who has seen Shingeki no Kyojin (eng: 'Attack on Titan')?
I would recommend it to everyone, but I think this is already quite popular so most of you anime-heads have seen it already.
For those who have seen it : your opinions on that?

I enjoyed it. There really isn't much for me to say about the show without spoiling a lot of it.

Yeah, let's avoid spoilers. Even people who aren't fans of anime seem to find this show easy to enjoy.

By the way, never go to the Attack on Titan wiki unless you're caught up with the manga. They don't hesitate to put spoilers everywhere: article text, pictures, and even titles. It's really rather obnoxious how bad they are, so if you've only seen the anime, don't go there. In fact, you should probably avoid searching the internet in general. If you really want to look something up, you should find the manga online and get caught up first.

Aww yeah, I get to share all my Attack on Titan gifs now!

Not Really Spoilers, But Could Be Considered As Such

Episode 5 Spoiler

Episode 7 Spoilers

Episode 8 Spoiler

Episode 9 Spoilers

Episode 19 Spoiler (not a gif)

It's a pretty great show. As Wing mentioned, though, it's really hard to talk about the show without spoiling it for those who haven't seen it yet. It's only 25 episodes (for the season) and pulls you in really quickly.

Basically, the show is an apocalyptic scenario about how humanity is brought to the brink of extinction by the titans (giant humanoid monsters). The surviving humans live inside these massive walls which protect them from the titans, and they send out the Recon Corps (or the Survey Corps if you're not watching the gg subs) to do expeditions and try to learn more about the titans in hopes of defeating them someday.

The character development is great, and the story is fascinating. It only takes a few episodes to know whether or not you'll enjoy the series (and I have yet to find anyone who hasn't enjoyed it).

Dropped it pretty early and went back to my shonen shit. Every episode felt really repetitive after they kept on pushing the 'shock' scenes too hard and too often. After a while I felt like all that happened was either people minding their own business or doing what they are doing and then getting brutally killed or a character staring at the screen with his mouth open doing that generic shocked stuttering noise.
Like the first 5 seconds looped for a lot longer than it really should have. Overall seems like a good show and it's so entry level that I couldn't get a day without seeing a ton of people posting about it on facebook when it aired. I wish people got this hyped over JoJo.

Was the "what did you wipe on my back?/My faith in humanity" thing actually said or just the translator I got my subs from having fun?

That's what was said. Out of curiosity, what alternative were you imagining?

By the way, [gg] is the best sub group for this series. They actually took this one seriously.

I remember seeing an alternative but I can't remember what was said exactly. I do know that when I read it I threw my hands in the air like this can't be real, the humanity thing was gold.

NudeRaider -- Dem0n
Dem0n shouted: who said you were crossing a line
NT kinda did Ultraviolet
Ultraviolet shouted: I always thought it was kind of messed up to impersonate someone without their permission, but I guess that's artistic license for you. When you get into the realm of using AI to do it.. it seems even worse to me, but I'm not sure why

Zoan -- and tbh no, this is exactly the type of thing ai should be used for. Now if you were monetizing it, I would say you should emohasize you used ai for the voicelines
[2023-12-08. : 8:29 pm]
Zoan -- he asked if "am I now crossing a line"
[2023-12-08. : 7:43 pm]
Dem0n -- who said you were crossing a line
[2023-12-08. : 2:24 pm]
Oh_Man -- but if i want to make a LOTR map and use AI generation to give aragorn etc more voice lines am I now suddenly crossing a line? wen did we get so snowflakey
[2023-12-08. : 2:23 pm]
Oh_Man -- well we been doing dodgy stuff in SC for ages playing resident evil and helms deep maps - we dont own the rights to them

Ultraviolet -- NudeRaider
NudeRaider shouted: Ultraviolet absolutely. You can count me among those folks. ;) But I understand it. It's a silly name only kids find funny. However to know that and still own it that would be the manliest move in my eyes.
Yeah, I can appreciate that perspective. I've used so many handles over the years, I think I had less attachment to NerdyTerdy than some of the folks here. Just never changed my name much here cause it was expensive :P I still kind of like the NT name, but definitely prefer Ultraviolet. I think UV has been my handle for around half my life at this point O.o

NudeRaider -- So the question is will we as a society become resilient against these forms of attacks? Either by detecting or accepting? Find new ways to deal with it? I guess we will have to wait and see.

NudeRaider -- da real donwano
da real donwano shouted: Society is not ready for the AI power we're being given. I'll die on that hill.
"social media" is imo a much better example for "society was not ready for it". We haven't seen yet where AI will lead us. It has a lot of potential for good, but then again, so had social media. For now the only potential for abuse in AI that I see is in forgery of various kinds.

NudeRaider -- Oh_Man
Oh_Man shouted: guys what are your thoughts on AI voice cloning vs someone doing impressions. why is one moral and the other immoral? or do you think both are fair game
For me it's the intent that make the difference, not the method. If you copy someone for profit or harm, then that's immoral. If your goal is satire then all bets are off. I think people are just afraid to be deceived because AI removes skill from the equation and painting AI usage as immoral is their weak attempt to defend against it.
