I'm thinking that the story is actually set in the future, and the giants were created by humanity. The reason the giants eat humans is because they need to in order to reproduce. The weak spot for every giant is actually what is left of the original human used to produce the giant. Eren's father was driven mad by this knowledge and that is why he kept it a secret and ran off to do something

It's apparently a best-seller in Japan, so all we've really got to worry about is nobody translating it.

Your forgetting the third possibility, its too popular for its own good and the author is forced to extend the story well after it should have ended.

Am I the only one disappointed in it?

Did you actually read the manga or are you basing it on the OP? I think the first few colorized pages look so bad is because they had a bad colorist. Its the only explanation I can come up with for why they look so terrible

Its kind of hard to repair the wall or set up explosives properly if there are a bunch of giants swarming at the hole. They also didn't design the city to be giant proof, because once giants breach the wall they are pretty much screwed no matter what they do, and the materials and manpower is better used for fortifying the wall. The reason they didn't seal up the doors is because at first they didn't really need to, and now the doors are necessary for their plans to take back the outer wall.
