Isayama had a very sweet dream after drawing 37 pages of the new chapter. The title of the article is Freud-sensei.
>He had a very sweet dream
But what does that mean?
Historia centered chapter?
Human development is determined by events in early childhood.
Thoughts, experiences, manners and attitude are influenced by irrational drives.
Irrational drives are unconscious.
Trying to make those drives aware leads to psychological resistance.
Conflict between conscious and unconscious materializes in emotional disturbances.
Isayama had a very sweet dream after drawing chapter 66. He looked at his own reflection in the mirror and questioned if ''this was really the right choice to made''
get hype for Eren's death
I think it's the former. He did something that will upset the fanbase very much and in the aftermath he's wondering if this was really the right choice to make.
I don't think he would be wondering about that if it was indeed something that wouldn't upset the biggest part of his fanbase.
>bert, ernie, erwin and annie are the onlly interesting characters in this shit manga
>they never appear again
Manlet death incoming.
That's why he mentioned the "choice" part.
It's his philosophy he lectured Eren about back in the Forest.
Humanities strongest and strongest Titan kill each other.
I'm looking at his blog and my Japanese is admittedly pretty weak but the dream doesn't seem to be related to the chapter, he just mentioned he had it after finishing up those pages for the day. It's possible I'm wrong but I'd suggest not getting your expectations up over this
No but in his case he is. Jean would be another example of a good character in this manga, but Jean is indeed boring because he's too normal. On the other hand Bert has the genocide thing and it seems he's misanthropic, but he's not fleshed out enough. He also doesn't talk much so it could be intentional.
Bert is not a good character and definitely not comparable to Jean. May be because of the lack of screentime. I agree with the other anon that Reiner and Annie are more interesting.
Pathetic doesn't equal uninteresting. If anything, being pathetic is what makes him more interesting. Reiner's issues are way too edgy for my tastes but he's well executed so far and I agree about Annie.
Bert is so far a great character despite the lack of screentime. Jean is much better of course, I only used him as an example of a good but "boring" character. Bert is way less boring than Jean but not as fleshed out because he lacks screentime.
Oh, you're that fag who gets immediately butthurt when someone says something positive about Bert. Sad. I don't even like Bert or have a favorite character in this series at all, but it's true.
Characterization doesn't only happen when someone cries. Characterization is when he doesn't talk even when prompted and when he bawls his eyes out at extreme pressure. Keeping a distance from anyone but Reiner and being clingy like a dog.
I'll make my judgement depending on how he concludes her. If he has her die in 66 then I'd say she was a mess, if she survives and he actually develops her then I would say she's one of the more complex characters.
When Bert doesn't talk it's up to the reader to guess why he doesn't do that, that is a way to draw attention to a character, however it doesn't work that way if you're trying to describe a character as being well fleshed out. Bert's character could use a hell of a lot of working on, but what we've got so far of him doesn't make up for a character that is ''good''
She's already one of the more, if not the most, complex characters. If she survives and he has her develop beyond this then she could be considered one of his better written characters.
I agreed with you though, that's what I said too. My point is that for his little screentime, he is still good. The main thing I dislike about him is how we don't know if he hates humans or not, but I presume that's plot relevant for the future.
I'm not sure if she's the most complex overall, but I agree she is up there even as of now. If Isayama can get a better grasp of her character and fleshes her out more then she could easily become one of the better written ones because of her potential growth.
If you're expecting from him the same characterization of a main character you're doing it wrong. He's good for an irrelevant character that barely had any screentime. He's fine for what he is.
The question here is why does he have so little screentime when he's the fucking colossal titan.
Him being good is then your subjective opinion on him. I personally think that for being considered one of the main antagonists he still needs a bunch of development and way more characterization than what we have.
I think BRA were taught to hate humans, so yes, I think that him as being the only one to stick to his mission to the end without breaking, does still hate humans.
I'm still not who you think I am, which is pretty funny that you want to insist that since I rarely even discuss Bert anyway. Also you seem to be pretty butthurt about so-called sarcasm.
Probably because the main part of his personality is that he's a clingy taciturn, which means he doesn't talk a lot and he just follows Reiner around. He will probably be more fleshed out if the story focuses on BRY since we'll see some of his past and thoughts, which so far were spoilers and we couldn't see them.
>Him being good is then your subjective opinion on him.
Could be applied to your opinion as well. I agree with what you said though, that's exactly what I said too. I suppose he might be the one that dislikes humans the most because of the children of the devil line.
Characterization, no. Development, sure. Regarding characterization he's up there. Not the most characterized, but definitely more than characters like Connie, Sasha, Hanji and even Erwin.
It comes down to opinions then, other than that we seem to agree. He can certainly use some fleshing out, but apparently BRY have been written off the story like Annie. Which is sad because Annie is my favorite.
Sasha had her dair share of characterization but I agree that she's been on the neglected side by Isayama
About Erwin, I think this arc definitely fleshed him out more and made him more sympathetic as a character to me. I don't agree that he has less characterization than Bert.
She goes beyond naive. She's still hopelessly dependent on the approval of others. First it was Ymir, now it's neglectful daddy.
I just wish Ymir was still around to shout some sense into her. Although she might just encourage her to eat Eren.
That's okay then, it all boils down to opinions. Annie is among my favorite characters, she's a bit like Bert in like I think she needs more screentime for me to form a proper opinion on her character overall.
Yes, I agree about Annie too, I think both her and Bert could use some more screentime but they just left the story. I still like both of them a lot though and I think they (and BRA in general) provide a lot of food for thought.
People say that if Ymir were around the situation would be different but even with Ymir around her father would still have gotten to her and Historia would have still heard about her sister, etc, etc. Nothing Ymir could have done.
Pretty sure if Ymir was around Historia would be more willing to go against her dad. She really just needs some independence, she was beginning to get that until her dad came back into the picture.
Holy shit, I mean I really don't want to get my hopes up but I honestly can't describe how happy I'll be if he really killed off Eren.
I think we should make him a card or something to let him know there's a following of his that would support this decision.
The reason I believe that Ymir being there would make a difference is because of what Historia tells Ymir before they separate. That whole "I fear nothing when with you" speech and whatnot. That being said she should not rely on other's approval, but some people just don't recover from that I guess?
Not at all, her father just needed to sweet talk her and tell her that he always loved her to have her wrapped around his finger and force her to do anything for him. What would Ymir being there change in that situation? Absolutely nothing.
Well he also took advantage of her current state, don't forget that she didn't go into this thinking she would side with him. When she first saw Rod she was pissed as fuck, now I have to wonder what happened to that.
>now I have to wonder what happened to that
There was a flashback where you see what happened after the hug. Though I also wonder what happened after the hug and the talk they had.
Even if that's the case, there's still Frieda who played a big factor in Historia's decision to have Eren killed ''for the greater good''
It's easy to do so when you get the approval you always longed for. However I do think that in Historia's case it's extreme and I think it's more for the sake of the plot to have Historia sided with her father.
What happened is she never actually came to terms with her past. She's still thinking about how she can die properly, about how she can be useful to others. It's even suggested when Eren doesn't transform - she hesitates because she expected to get killed by him and considered that an acceptable outcome at the time.
She hasn't changed a bit despite everything Ymir told her.
