WWC: "It’s not easy having the daunting responsibility of being the most popular anime of the year. You have to certainly meet everybody’s expectations at some point in time. Even if you don’t, your reputation grows ever so strong because of word of mouth. Whether you’re hated or loved doesn’t matter, people will still talk about you. Isn’t that plenty? Well, it’s good enough for the studio producing and the television station giving you the air time to expand your audience even further. It’s a win-win for everybody. Such was the case of Attack on Titan or Shingeki no Kyojin in its native Japanese."
