Spoiler pic is out for ch. 75, YH will be in the PS4 game and Chuugakkou will run for 12 eps.
Kek, indeed. Though, I would have liked if Historia acted kind of possessive around Ymir or at least say something. She barely talks that much.
I can't wait for the valentines episode.
It's jarring to see her as Krista again. Now that she's come a long way as a person Krista is pretty much like another character to me. I'm a bit surprised the manga hasn't made her Historia yet considering Frieda and Rod and Kenny are in the story now.
Isayama’s Q & A from December 2015 and he mentioned Ymir as one of the smartest from the 104th:
>Q: Among the 104th graduating cadets, who excelled in academic learning?
A: Armin, Marco, Jean, Reiner, Ymir.
Me neither, I expected Bert to be mentioned instead of Reiner since he's kinda a bookworm as it's been confirmed in another Q/A.
But Reiner? Jean? I don't buy it. Jean especially never gave me the impression he's smart.
Sorry, not good at moon. Maybe someone who is could give us a summary?
I like how Ymir was preventing Krista from getting stuck in the confetti by holding Krista above her head.
When you suddenly find yourself in a crack pairing
It was pretty weird, and she didn't recognize Historia either. I suppose they wanted to do callbacks to the manga without stating too much, as something for the mangafags. Eren even saw Frieda in the mirror.
Thread has been kill since both of YH aren't in the manga, huh?
Yeah, threads became more quiet after Historia also stopped appearing in the manga.
For the festival episode, it was two chapters condensed. So I guess they just wanted to get to the point of setting up Bert and Annie, but this anon >>1926466 is correct there is a lot of YH moments otherwise. It was also cool that Frieda made her debut too.
I'm a little salty the groping scene got cut out though ;_;
True. I personally don't think Historia will be coming back anytime soon, before Ymir though. I have a feeling she will be relevant once Ymir is back because Historia already got her arc sorted out so it will probably be Ymir's time and then the possible reunion.
>I'm a little salty the groping scene got cut out though ;_;
This was the biggest crime the anime spin off committed. You just don't cut a scene like this.
Maybe they think kids watch the show so probably that's why.
Perhaps but I agree it was the biggest crime committed. There are still a few episodes left so maybe we will get another decent moment between them.
I suspect once Ymir gets sorted out then they will reunite. It sucks that Isayama kept them separated for so long though, but maybe he also did it for spoiler purposes? Like maybe something in Historia's backstory will connect with a part in Ymir's. I'm thinking the book.
Yeah, I'm thinking the book will play a big part. That titan who looks exactly like Ymir's in the book just can't be a coincidence.
He probably separated them because Ymir is a spoiler herself and he expanded the story. Probably didn't want titan stuff to be revealed that early and Ymir definitely knows things. Otherwise there's no other reason to why Isayama keeps Ymir away from Hanji and Erwin who know about the Ilse incident.
Ymir is probably the only titan shifter who knows the whole deal about titans vs humans and I don't see BRAMT spilling some info.
Can someone send me a link, so i can read this whole doujinshi, please.
I think their separation was for Historia's development and also because the story got extended. He needed an excuse to not give us any answers yet. I also think that they'll reunite after Ymir's story is done and that there is possible connection between their backstories. Historia's family mysteries feel kind of unfinished.
That's true, Ymir definitely does know more and it makes sense to keep her out of the picture for a while otherwise most mysteries could probably be solved when she talks to the SL.
The separation in general seems to be for several reasons. As for the Reiss family there's still the wall titans and whatever knowledge Frieda possessed.
It's too obvious MT will be the winner in this first battle. Maybe he'll propose something for Eren to stop all that blood battle later on and tell him how he keeps Ymir prisoned and he'll free her when Eren comes with him.
Kind of like what Eren told Historia about how he wasn't strong enough to save Ymir back then.
Unless he wants to fully devour Eren right now. But until then, I can see him offering Ymir for Eren.
I don't think Eren would do that and it's also more likely that MT will offer to spare the life of his friends, if Eren comes with them. And that's probably when we'll see Ymir again. I could imagine they'll also have a talk and Eren might help her too.
>I don't think Eren would do that
Why not? I mean, Ymir might not be his best friend and he barely knows her, but she means much to Historia. Eren is way too selfless for his own good and he'll do anything for his own people.
But I could see that too.
I think Eren is going to try and play it smarter now after everything he's been through. He can't really risk getting captured again, and I think Ymir hasn't been taken as prisoner. I think she did actually ditch BR just before MT showed up because MT still wants the coordinate immediately.
Well if she ditched BR then wouldn't she be back inside the walls? To warn Historia? It's just not Ymir's type to just leave and disappear and do nothing for months, assuming the MT/Reiner fight happened some months ago.
She must know how MT is dangerous.
Majority? Don't think so. But that shouldn't bother you, just ignore.
Also, every ship has their obnoxious retards from time to time. Some YHfags do annoy me sometimes such as EMfags and other ships, it's mostly fags and not the ship itself.
Took some screenies from a YT vid, Idk I thought they were funny.
I don't want this thread to die out but there really is a huge lack of anything YumiKuri these days... any drawfags or writers in this thread that might like to contribute some fanwork to the pairing?
Yeah and Chuugakkou didn't really bring them back. The only thing that will revive YH is manga reunion and S2, but S2 has been delayed so long it killed the hype. Things are only popular for so long.
So I main /u/ because I know it will always have a tasteful mix of lewd and non-lewd fanart, and I've been really scared to visit /y/, even though I like gay male fanart just as much as gay female fanart (as long as it's all non-lewd), because I'm worried it's all just going to be lewd.
On a scale of 0–10, where 0 is completely non-lewd and 10 is completely lewd, where would you rank /u/ and /y/, respectively?
God fucking damn it, we have been waiting for more than two YEARS now. Every time a new chapter rolls around and there's no confirmation of where Ymir is or what might have happened to her, I just get MAD. Every fucking time. It's my monthly butthurt. It's like having a second period.
This needs to end. If she's dead, just fucking TELL us already, Isayama, god. I'd rather know she's dead than not know anything.
After this chapter I wouldn't hold high hopes that she's still alive. If Reiner brought up his promise to Ymir to protect Historia, it's because Ymir is incapable of doing so... due to her death.
If Isayama is planning on killing off a lot of major characters in the last third of the series, then it might make sense that he would delay telling us about Ymir's death. The chapter in which we are finally shown how she dies would mark kind of a turning point in the series, after which point main characters would start dying left and right.
Me too. I don't get the point why he is trying to be ambiguous about it if he indeed intended to kill her off after chapter 50. She is also still listed as a character that's alive, so apparently her going with them didn't mark her death.
Grisha's faith was ambiguous and he could have just been missing. Going by what we know from Reiner, Ymir is going to die at their village. So this should already confirm her death, but apparently it doesn't.
>Grisha's faith was ambiguous and he could have just been missing.
But he wasn't. He was dead. We just didn't KNOW he was dead.
Therefore, if Ymir were dead, that doesn't necessarily mean she would be crossed out. She would remain un-crossed out, UNTIL we actually LEARNED she was dead.
>But he wasn't. He was dead. We just didn't KNOW he was dead.
Yes, but we didn't know that. Like I said, he could have just been missing for all we know. In Ymir's case it's different. We definitely know from Reiner that she's going to die at BRA's village and since that's the case, she should be marked as dead since ch.51.
How come their is no one likes mikasa x sasha? It seem's that not many people pays enough of attention towards another pairing like mikasa and sasha.
I'm with you on this ship. Wish they would interact more, they have so much potential.
You have no justification for this.
With Grisha, his face was not crossed out UNTIL we had absolute confirmation of his death. If Ymir is dead, it will be the same. Her face will not be crossed out until it is confirmed. You can't use the fact that her face is not crossed out to assume she's not dead.
>With Grisha, his face was not crossed out UNTIL we had absolute confirmation of his death.
Of course not, because crossing him out since the moment he went missing would have been a spoiler. Even Eren was wondering where he was and if he's dead or not.
>You can't use the fact that her face is not crossed out to assume she's not dead.
Yes, people can do that and be doubtful, until we've absolute confirmation that she's dead.
>Of course not, because crossing him out since the moment he went missing would have been a spoiler.
So why do you think it would be any different with Ymir? The fact that she's not crossed out means absolutely nothing. She could be alive, or she could be dead. We don't know. We have no way of knowing. Not until it is revealed.
Ymir ain't dead you fucking dumbasses. I bet Isayama fills his morning coffee cup with his fans' tears. He enjoys throwing around false flags left and right, and he's got all of us fans of Ymir baited.
First off, Ymir ain't some redshirt a la Marco, so an offsreen dead, whose ony purpose was to give character depth to Annie, is out of the fucking question.
Ymir has a lot to tell. Ain't no way that's happening through dumbass flashbacks of people who aren't Ymir herself. Ymir Ymir-sama, Ymir's people, all of those questions that would go unanswered if she's already been killed off screen.
Why wouldd Reiner mention.his promise to Ymir? Of course, this means that Ymir is currently in a state where she's in no way capable of protecting Historia herself. Doesn't mean she's dead, though. I think this is confirmation that Ymir didn't escape as you guys used to especulate. She is at their village, likely imprisoned. Perhaps even sentenced to death, to be fed to a new warrior.
For the record, I want you to be right.
I'm just saying we can't know. And if we don't accept the possibility, then it will only hurt worse if it turns out that way. I prefer to hope for the best but expect the worst.
Seriously, though. Why in god's name would Ymir give up a laifu with her waifu inside the walls with the coordinate on their side to save a couple of fucking schmucks like Bert and Reiner of all people? Why would the person who kept espousing the inherent value of living for one's self and one's own happiness do a literal 180 and moonwalk away from a Historia who had just told her "It's kind of mysterious, but with you... I'm not afraid of anything, anymore." to go sign herself up to be eaten by some shitlord "Warrior" titans?
Until Isayama does us all at least the favor of answering that much, I will personally hate him. Because he wrote an interesting lesbian character off to seemingly her death, contravening her entire character arc to do so, because he's too much of a fucking hack to keep her in the manga without having her spill the secrets to everything.
God damnit, every month she's piling up deathflags pisses me off more and more- it's to the point that I can't even properly enjoy otherwise legitimately good chapters anymore.

UGH I KNOW
I've analyzed chapter 50 obsessively ever since I caught up with the manga, and I've ranted about this many times, both here and on other fan forums. Her decision makes zero apparent sense, and I'm CONVINCED there's some kind of ulterior motive behind it.
My theory is that she is planning on taking back her throne. When Ymir and Historia parted ways, they were but soldiers; when they meet again, they will both be queens.
I'm guessing she knew Zeke would kill them if they returned back to their village emptyhanded. If anything, she's demonstrated that she's an asshole with a heart of gold (helping carry Sasha, distracting Connie from learning his mom's a titan)
That's entirely possible. But it doesn't even begin to explain WHY Ymir would value their lives and safety over her own, and the happiness of herself and Historia (who had just finished basically telling her how happy Ymir made Historia whenever she was around). There doesn't seem to be a single thing in the fucking world that could possibly explain her acting that way other than the fact that Isayama is a shit writer and couldn't imagine how to keep her around without having her info dump all over the plot.
We have absolutely no reason to believe that it would be even remotely in character for Ymir to abandon not only herself but the one person demonstrably proven to be the most important person to her to save the lives of a couple of shitbag murderers.
Oh shit, I just re-read chapter 74 and realized that all those titans surrounding Shiganshina are fucking SHIFTERS. They're not just ordinary dumb titans that Zeke summoned and is commanding. It's a goddamned army of shifters. The survey corps is just fucked.
I feel like the walls will be definitely doomed at some point. It would be weird if they stay safe and peacefull from now on until the end, especially with the walls titans and everything. It's probably going to happen after this battle.
Historia's birthday this year brought out some really nice YH fanarts.
The figurines look like heads and the trees look like naked bodies. The slot across the middle looks like a censor bar covering their genitals, and the leaves on either side are also conveniently placed. I dunno.
Speaking of the game. Monkey Titan was shown in the latest trailer with Kristoria being surprised.
I'm trying not to get my hopes up for content beyond the anime in case it doesn't happen.
