I don't understand the Homeland at all. If the Homeland is organized enough to produce Generals like Sieg, why did they feel the need to send four child soldiers to claim the coordinate? Is the coordinate not important enough to warrant sending experienced warriors over children?
When pressuring Annie, Reiner said, "If you claim that you, and that father waiting for your return are different from this defiled race...", but he makes no mention of the mother. Is this indicative of political strife within the Homeland itself? Some kind of inequality between them? Is the reason the Homeland sent child soldiers is because the military power is already being exhausted, and they need the coordinate in order to solve the bigger problem?
>plot progression in this show is actually power creep disguised by increased knowledge of unknown.
>In other news Isayama is a hack
I don't really see why they would need to infiltrate the military though. If their objective was to reach the coordinate they believed to be in Wall Sina why didn't they just break both walls initially and force themselves in.
>which they tried to do anyway
>but he makes no mention of the mother.
She was probably the previous user of Annie's titan, and as such was sacrificed so Annie could progress from mindless titan to shifter just like how Grisha let himself get eaten by Eren.
Reiner's surname being on the armor serum bottle that Eren chugged made it pretty clear specialized titan forms go way back and are associated with certain families.
It's about infiltration.
Sieg is an old guy it seems.
BAR are teenagers who can freely join the military as recruits which is less suspicious..
Annie wanted to join the MP. Most likely to gather information there.
I don't think a guy like Sieg can just join the trainees consisting of teenagers.
And the trainees get to go in one of the 3 branches once they graduated.
What would Sieg do?
Just go to the military and say he wants to join the police?
He'd be a mere civilian.
And increased knowledge of unknown is wrong.
The pieces are already starting to come together.

Erwin's papa was a history teacher who got tortured for his believes.
People in the walls are apparently evil.
The Reiss and the MP enforced a fabricated history.

If these assholes think the coordinate is a problem to them, then why the king has never used it against MT and his pals? they clearly thing the coordinate is a nuisance.
Also, Ymir was probably a high ranked person in that society since that deviant titan called her ~sama, she and her people probably did something wrong and ended being punished, living as titans.
>Well is she is the prettiest by far.
We already went over this several times.
From her being pointed out to be good with horses, to her connection with "Freya", her royal status, to her name, regarded as goddess like and Hrafnsmal even pointing out a blonde haired one with fair skin and sparkling eyes.
Everyone has those moments. Historia is average as everyone else except the really ugly like Oluo, Bert, Dazz.
>her being pointed out to be good with horses
That was just mary sue points kicking in.
>her royal status
Doesn't really mean any link. Their contexts are totally different.
>pointing out a blonde haired one with fair skin and sparkling eyes
Half of the cast is like that.
No, I remember her saying she had a life where none actually gave one fucks about her. She also said she wanted to have a fresh new start after all that shit and later said to RB take me to your village I don't care anymore if i die. Conclusion is she is just as retarded as some other characters.
>No, I remember her saying she had a life where none actually gave one fucks about her.
She never said that. She said people hated her for simply being born, which is the opposite of not caring about her existence.
The filename blew your cover Mikasafag. Hilarious some try to even argue this considering Erwin and Historia are the only ones who Isayama actually bother's to draw. Mikasa has been drawn like shit since the beginning, if one like Historia is ok than Mankasa is shit tier.
Bimbong a mary sue as said by a Bimbongwaifufag himself.

>Her character has went on developing since the beginning and now she is one of the best characters in the manga.
>Isayama doesn't need to force her down our throat, everything comes natural and her relationships with Eren, Levi or Ymir are very good and refreshing.
>Isayama still has mysteries surrounded around her about her family's secrets and now the kingdom since she is the Queen.
>She has helped the main character Eren develope into something more than a ragetard.
>One of the most important and relevant character from the manga.
>Plot wise important

I know you are retarded but this is well known why he draws her more than the others. Also just because he draws her more doesn't mean he even puts effort in it. Look at how awful she gets drawn lately, it's obvious he got bored with her character or doesn't know what to do with her. I'd be pretty pissed also if I was Isayama and had to draw a character just because of her MC status.
Yes, I too can pick out points from an entire argument and twist them.
This story has no norse influences. Freya, Titans, Ymir and Utgard are mere coincidences.
Get real, anon. Historia is a valkyrie just how Frieda was Freya. It's just norse allusions which need no confirmation cause it's not plot relevant but merely a written detail to add to the theme of the story. Not everything needs to be pulled out the fucking nose or a confirmation to be accepted.
Next up you're gonna tell me the walls, the land, and the people within aren't supposed to be Midgard.
He can draw EAL since they are technically more popular than MikaBae but he literally chooses to draw Mikachan every day. To brand every picture with MikaQT. To spread the MikaQT love through endorsement of MikaHot.
That's interesting, maybe she was from a faction that was pushing forwards the idea of peace with people from the walls, at the end they got punished by radicals and ended up in the outside world as a titan.
Nope. But we learned they were humans.
We're currently fighting for the basement against MT and Bert, Reiner 99% confirmed dead. Annie still waiting for her prince and revealed to be soft to the point of endangering the mission of BAR cause she originally didn't want to kill Marco until Reiner used emotional pressure.
Historia is now Queen.
Mikasa still a shit.
Historia's sister is perfection.
Eren can get hard now thanks to Historia.
That's all you need to know.
Her own people seem to hate her and after a comment from the snowy mountain flashback I think people might have hated her whole family in general. Maybe they were also doing terrible things like the Reiss family, but since they couldn't erase memories they couldn't cover it up like they did.
It's well implied she was the most beautiful in the 104 squad training. I don't give a shit about that norse mythology, retards keep talking about though, even if Isayama took some names from there it's obvious it has no connection to their stories.
Isayama actually copy pasted Historia's characters design from a one shot he did before snk, which had nothing to do with titans or norse mythology in general. Her name is from Ace Combat.
I wanted to say he didn't took the events from the norse mythology and used them in his story, most likely just the names. Taking designs from his former mangas is nothing new. A lot of creators use old designs from their former creations.
And again, it's an allusion not an actual valkyrie.
I don't see Ymir being a titan so big that her body parts are used to create the world.
Except neither of them have any relation to Frieda who's name literally refers to Freya.
Nor do they have a pointed out good connection to horses, nor are they "godlike" beings or daughters of royalty etc.
Historia's family tree is likely to be from thieves who stole the coordinate and claimed to be kings inside the walls. Frieda freaked out once and said what terrible shit they did.
"Shouldn't you be 'retaking' the coordinate" pretty much confirms that the power was stolen from them.
Historia, by being born as a bastard kid didn't follow her family's destiny.
I really like how you guys can't bring up a single legit counter argument except the delusional excuse.
Really adds to your credibility. Especially in such repeated manner.
Come on, let's keep going! This cannot possibly be all you can do.
But you being delusional is a legit point in not taking you serious. Neither is you trying to proof she is a valkyrie by using disney princess traits and her appearance which was copy pasted from a one shot Isayama drew before snk.
I don't have to.
If you cannot grasp Krista, not Historia, and her connection with fallen soldiers, then you fail at reading comprehension. Especially since you brought up soldiers yourself just now. You want to be spoonfed? You're an adult aren't you? You can make out the rest as well since you already have half of it figured out.
Threadly reminder Mikasa is cutest shingeki.
Actually this, Mikasa is the most diverse girl in the story so far. Historia is another generic ditzy blonde and Annie is a blatant forced alternate Mikasa.
The only other girl who even comes close in originality and cuteness is Ymir.
>Also, Ymir was probably a high ranked person in that society since that deviant titan called her ~sama, she and her people probably did something wrong and ended being punished, living as titans.
Since Ymir and Historia are couple, they may share some similarity. She maybe some sort of princess, thus being called -sama, who was persecuted due to political struggle. It's also the reason she thought she would be killed once returned.
Stunkmir? Original? Top kek, she's just a forced dyke. She's so useless to the story she gets added into it for a consecutive 3 whole chapters and then dissapears never to be seen from again. At least her and shitstoria have that in common.
>Ymirfags will flock to this post as some sort of justification
>Annie is a blatant forced alternate Mikasa
It's the other way, Annie has an actually character, background and relationship with other people. While the only thing relevant about Mankasa is her obsessive yandere tendency.
>Annie has an actually character, background and relationship with other people.
Oh anon. My sides, my sides. Vague references to muh daddy and a few brief intereactions count for shit.
If the titan hometown could send children to fight for them, it's highly unlikely they'd send the children of their highest ranking families.
I think Reiner and Bertolt are orphans who were trained from birth, and chose their last names according to the serums they took. If you notice, Annie is the only one who has family, Reiner and Bertolt don't have such a connection except to themselves.
This is why Annie couldn't get along with them, they're too brainwashed.
He so mad he even spergs over theories and discussions
When you can prove it then I'll agree
Too easy to say that, these threads are bad for a variety of reasons namely retards who hate all characters and just come here to shitpost. I like most of the shingekis so nice try
The most lame characters are actually EMA. Not sure how anyone can like them or ship these garbage characters with their favorite. This chapter was actually good, because they were barely in this chapter. Especially Shitren is annoying.
>making a bait and falling for it yourself three times
I never take my trip off when I'm in these threads, not anymore pal.
>BRA are shit
>EMA are shit
>HEL are shit
>YH are shit
So, is there anyone it's okay to talk about here without 100 samefagging replies claiming how shit they are/their characterfags are?
Why do Mikasafags feel the need to hate Annie? I don't get it she, Hange and Historia are easily the best girls in SnK but she is a cut above these two. Now all they do is shit on her despite her lack of appearance.
I think it's more or less he's managed to turn these threads into his playground. He doesn't even hide it anymore, he uses a trip then makes a single post and the whole thread goes into derailment. How does one achieve a power like this?
In reality it's just you Anniefags getting triggered about every little thing.
>post made by a Mikasafag
>take all the hate out on Ymir
Yeah, you guys definitely aren't the cancer ruining these threads.
It happens in every series once waifufaggots get too obsessive, they always end up flinging feces at other waifufaggots and fighting over which girl gets deserves to be porked by the MC, no matter how shit he is.
I actually kek whenever I see a "MikaQT Ackerman" post pop up these days because I already know the outcome for what the rest of the thread will be like. It's pretty hilarious honestly.
Sometimes he does that too and then shits on him. If you see someone saying bimbong, 100 varieties of the word complex, Ben, MikaQT, severe samefagging and shitting on other characters, you know who that is.
How is it me who is ruining these threads?
>Mikasa is worth a 100 soldiers and is only 15, saved various characters
>Annie continues to surprise us by showing new sides to her character, making her more and more human and sympathetic
>Hanji is a kind yet eccentric person who's intelligence is a necessity for the SL's success
>Historia is a tiny queen who wants to make life better for the people inside the walls and proves to be stronger than she looks
>Ymir is mysterious and bitchy at first, but caring deep down and a good mentor
>Sasha gets simplified into food jokes too much but is a great friend to everyone else and took on a titan with just an axe
Now stop fighting waifufags, all of your waifus are good.
You popped up half a year ago and now you have these threads by the balls you cancerous fuck. You indirectly shit on character an purposely make your posts as a final say type so you always can act like youre a higher power. You are actually a fucking rallying cry for shitposting, congratulations.
Ever since I left the city
It's a Reinerfag that shits on every character. "MikaQT" is obviously reverse shitposting but you don't see him ever writing like a retard when it comes to Reiner, he just shits on Bert or Historia when Reiner is the topic.
Is the manga still worth reading? It looks like I dropped it at the wrong time (when Eren is chained up, right before they reveal FUCKING EVERYTHING) and I was convinced the plot had gone off the rails but it seems like there's actual progress now
I'd rather spam fanart than shitpost about waifus
I don't think Reiner will die, but I think he'll become a mindless titan since his head's been blown off. If Bert succeeds in kidnapping Eren (again), maybe Reiner has a chance of becoming human again if he finds another shifter to eat.
>yfw Connie snatches the serum, eats Reiner and faces Sieg who has just killed Levi
From the monthly magazine with a figurine :
Mad Scientist of Unknown Gender
Hanji was a character created because I wanted a mad scientist.
Hanji’s appearance consists of sticky, dirty, long and unkempt hair, something that couldn’t be clearly shown in the manga. I wanted to depict Hanji as an unhygienic person.
Why does Hanji neglect her appearance? That’s because something more interesting has grabbed her attention. Among “otaku”, many of them neglect their own appearance and I think that’s how Hanji is as well.
Another characteristic of people known as “otaku” is that while they are normally quiet, they can go on forever about a topic they like. That’s also Hanji. Someone obsessed with the titans. A “titan otaku”. The kind who rarely engages in everyday small talk, but goes on forever once you get them started on the titans.
There is a clear source that Hanji is based on, and that is Machiyama Tomohiro, the script writer for the live action movie. I found Hanji to be quite similar to him. When I was watching the test screening of the live action movie with him, I saw him laughing out loud at Hanji’s scenes. I’m sure that’s because he could relate with her quite well.
Mr. Machiyama influenced me a lot. In Chapter 1 of the manga, the Survey Corps shouted, “We didn’t get any closer to finding out what those things are” after returning from an expedition. I applied an idea I learned from him directly in that scene. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to apply the very idea in the later story because the story has, instead, developed in quite the opposite direction. Nonetheless, many parts were still affected by it, like the standpoint of the Survey Corps (and Eren), and the role of the Colossal Titan.
Another important characteristic of Hanji is that his or her gender is unknown.
While Hanji is clearly female in the anime and live action movie, her gender is not disclosed in the manga. When I saw Matsuko Deluxe for the first time, I had no idea what his/her gender was. I wanted to portray Hanji as a free being not bounded by any real world standards like Matsuko is because I think that too fits Hanji well as a character.
Why does Eren have to be such an ass to her all the time?
What is this face meant to convey?
She knew Eren was coming for a visit before he even arrived, pic related. It's heavily implied Mikasa is born with some superb senses.
He never really means it
>wolves immediately know not to fuck with her
Ackerman badassery at its best.
>one of the typical traits of a Mary Sue is to boss around or otherwise communicate with animals; examples include Kenshiro and now Mikasa Ackerman
I still love her, but damn.
Because it's a spinoff about Mikasa, meant to promote Mikasa and please Mikasafags. And since there's nothing to like about Mikasa as a character they have to resort to making you feel sorry for her and making other characters look worse for her to look better in comparison.
His hairstyle in this scene was GOAT. Isayama used to do pretty nice 3/4's. Now his art's too influenced by the anime's shit designs to be good.
Now we have this. Thanks, Araki.
>Sister-zoned by her mom
Did any of them get the talk? Or are they still under the impression that babies come from a bird?
I missed Historia's birthday
Feels pretty shit desu
Did someone say delusional?
This. Bertolt is also overqt and it's a plus.
>if Shrek is hot
Of course she's hot, Reiner is not.
Yup Bert is a cutie, he would be my first choice for sure. You never know what "beta" guys would do. But yeah too bad Erwin is a cripple now. So Bert>Erwin>Reiner for me.
Isayama is drawing him wider and cuter now. I already liked him but now he took leaps in looks since he doesn't look like a sweating noodle.
Only on /a/, but I'll take what I can get. I hope he lives up to the hype of being the CT.
I just realized that was Historia in the corner when I saw the screencap.
