Solid ending as expected. I usually only really have a lot of thoughts on shows where I have issues with it, but I really just liked this show every step of the way, can't complain about anything. Show of the year 10/10

The first half was marked by lack of animation and glacial pacing. The second half is where things got weird. On the one hand there was a stark increase in budget, but on the other hand episodes started to be stretched out with either long fights (good) or fillers. The fillers themselves varied, though I'm not an opponent. The corpse filler was done very well and helped press in the overall theme of the story. Marlowe's filler was less appealing, since it leads to a completely different message (though Shingeki is a story of despair, sacrifice and perseverance, not corruption, so it's not important). The ending was mixed, on the one hand longer and expanded fight scenes was a plus. Characterizations however suffered (though probably because there wasn't any to begin with so the writers just made up random stuff). Erin's super mode is also a contentious point for me, if only because I don't know how it's going to work as we get further along the story. The curtain closing itself also could've been handled much much better, but I guess they're trying to leave a conclusive yet open ending in case plans for a sequel falls through.

Otherwise a solid and enjoyable watch, I give it a A-. Probably would've bumped to an A were it not for the source.

The only "glacial pacing" I felt throughout the entire show was the boulder arc, which only spanned about 3 episodes if I remember correctly. I never noticed a lack of budget, as far as quality of animation was concerned, but since there was decidedly more action in the second half, I could agree that there was more budget spent in terms of movement and thus more scenes having to be drawn, but I generally wouldn't bitch about anime quality unless we got a Beach Ball Cabbage or Toei faces.
I'm guessing you read the manga, so you'd be able to pick out what was filler and whatnot, but I'm glad you're not saying they were bad.
I was also told that the show ended a little differently than the manga, would you be able to fill me in on what happened differently?

Are you forgetting our old friend shaky frames and speed lines? Granted, that only jarred me because of how pretty everything else was. Also the purple brick road, whatever happened there.

Yeah, I'm not vehemently 1:1 or it sucks. As long as the filler can contribute to the story, I don't really have a problem with it.

Start there and read till the end of the chapter (note they added basically half of the next chapter into the final ep, but left out the major stuff).

Basically, Eren doesn't go into super mode.

Spoilers started happening quickly, but I get what you mean. It really doesn't change anything though.
