I just started it too. 9 eps in.

One of my favorites already. So far anyways. Could always take a nose dive like Death Note did

The correct translation is Advancing Giants.

but oh well.. Japan.

The correct translation is the official translation which is Attack on Titan. This question is like asking if the real name of Breaking bad is "meth lab"

Correct translation would be something more like "Attack of the Titans".

"Shingeki" means "invading and attacking," and "kyojin" means "giant(s)." However, "Attack on Titan" is the official subtitle Kodansha came up with for the manga, so although it's not a literal translation, that's still what it's called.

Which is funny since its based on the misconception that titans and giants are the same thing. Because they both fought against the olympians under Zeus

Except that isn't a translation of the title. It is a subtitle and the official localized title, but it is by no means a translation.
