Spoiler week soon.
Annie is love
Annie is life
I love Annie from the bottom of my heart and the core of my soul
Annie a miracle of the universe
Annie might've done some things wrong, but she's still a beautiful person inside and out
I found snippets of Erwin's dream story. (I think.)
Apparently it made people cry though I'm guessing that's an exaggeration. My moon isn't good enough to understand what this shit is saying though.
If I understood correctly, HEM made an appearance, Levi talked to Hanji about his injured (dead?) teammates, etc.
I don't think Marie was there. Made people cry as in it was pretty depressing. Someone commented that these old people should just go to the onsen and relax for a bit.
These are the only ones I managed to find so far.
I don't think Erwin thinks he deserves to live while thousands of innocents have died under his command. I think it's for the better if he dies if that at least gives him some kind of rest.
>That's probably why I want him to live until the end of the series the most
Not gonna happen ;_; I was hoping he'd live to see the fruits of his labor start to ripen though. Some light at the end of the tunnel.
>while thousands of innocents
They may be innocent but they signed up for it. Also considering that SL is 300, and that he's been Commander for less than 5 years and has in that time improved survival rates, it may very well be less than a thousand.
Same thing happened to Keith too, yet he's still alive. Though I suppose he's going to be like him if he survives. Live somewhere alone and not allow himself to be happy because of the blood he's shed.
I don't see Erwin stopping and resting if he survives. He's probably going to help with the restoration/expansion until he dies or something.
>not allow himself to be happy because of the blood he's shed
This will definitely happen though unless someone knocks some sense into him.
Pastor Nick refers to the walls as "gifts from God" or something along these lines, so I imagine the wall church is theistic. They just seem to worship walls more than an actual deity.
Hanji also mentions that Pastor Nick must be among the walls in heaven now that he's dead. Erwin mentions that he's going to hell and Historia says to Ymir that there's no heaven she's getting into heaven. And Maria, Rose and Sina are viewed as the three wall goddesses if I'm correct.
What if Armin asked her? She might respect him as much as Eren, or perhaps even more, but he's so weak psychically that I somehow doubt she would want to waste her time training him.
More on Erwin's dream story:
I can only moon a little bit with the help of rikai so here goes (not claiming 100% accuracy):
- After Erwin becomes commander, he hasn't had a dream and has been lacking sleep
- HELM chatting idly while drinking black tea (status: confirmed)
- HLM are the ones who console (rescue?) Erwin when he feels guilty of the deaths he's caused (status: confirmed)
- Whenever his comrades are injured, Levi gets nightmares (according to Hange)
So Levi barely sleeps, and when he does he gets nightmares.
I just found these from the chinks site.
Mike and Gerger rain story.
Part 1 of Hanji's interview.
Jean? I think he has gotten over the whole Marco thing long ago. And what about EMA? Both Mikasa and Armin seems to be fine as long as they can stay by Eren's side.
Which is never, since he is constantly getting kidnapped, but you know.
Mikasa must still harbor some kind of sadness which is why she's so overprotective of Eren. Armin lost his parents during the recuperation of Wall Rose.
His whole family gone.
She might object at first, claiming it's pointless since he wouldn't even be able to handle the training, but if he insisted and picked the right words to convince her, she'd give in. Think their conversation in the alley, except significantly more lighthearted.
>or perhaps even more
Well we know for sure Historia and Erwin are more or less depressed. Bert too if Isayama's suicide song means something.
Not sure I'd put someone like Connie on there yet, it depends on how he deals with his family dying.
2nd half of Hanji interview part 1. I think this is the whole thing.
>Not sure I'd put someone like Connie on there yet, it depends on how he deals with his family dying.
This. It's not what happened that matters here, it's how the victim handles it and I think Connie is doing a damn good job. He doesn't seem depressed at all to me.
He's handling it surprisingly well. Or maybe it just seems that way because Isayama never focuses on him for long.
Erwin is a completely different character/personality type, though, and someone like Connie is far less likely to hide his emotions. He was definitely sad about the ordeal, but he seems to be acting like a 'normal' person would and shows no signs of depression.
But >>112840655 could also be right, maybe he's been dying inside all along and we have no way of telling.
Where did Annie show any interest in Armin? She would not train him, not only is he incapable of learning those moves, but I don't think he is strong enough physically to even handle those move on him.
I think he does sleep on his bed occasionally, but most of the time he's overworked or naps on his desk for a few hours.
Isayama did say his average sleeping time is 2-3 hours. He probably naps a few times in a day instead of a straight 6-7 hours of sleep.
>Where did Annie show any interest in Armin?
She spared him for no apparent reason and purposely took Armin's bait.
But I agree, why would she train him? I doubt that Armin would ever show any interest in combat.
She took his bait, because she had something planned as well, not really out of interest in Armin. I'm pretty sure the only time they even talked was that good person Annie bit. Annie might be a killer, but she still has human parts to her, and she might have spared him because she didn't want to kill people she knew, and people that weren't really a threat.
Even if he gets his 6 hours in increments and sleeps in his bed occasionally, he still should feel fatigued throughout the day, especially since Isayama said he doesn't eat much. How is this even possible with all of the strenuous activity he does.
He just said Levi is lax with his diet. Either he really doesn't eat much (and can still function thanks to Ackerman superpowers) or that means he's just not picky about food/doesn't need to eat at regular intervals. I'm guessing it's the latter considering his background.
There's little reason to believe she respected Armin more when her fascination with Eren's ideals remained the main focus. You can put them on the same level if you want, but that's it.
>and people that weren't really a threat
She did recognize him as a threat, though, and that's what makes it fucking tragic. She also didn't hesitate to kill Jean, suggesting it takes more than an "oh I know you" for her to spare someone.
Jean is actually a threat though, because I think he was actually trying to take Annie down. Despite all the shitposters here, he is actually competent with 3DMG, and could potentially hurt Annie. Armin is pretty much characterized as extremely weak physically. Both of those things are probably requisites for Annie thinking about sparing you.
For all we know Levi could've been a lot worse when he was younger.
I'm thinking in terms of 3DMG and all. She's great but not as good as Levi is. And I doubt she would've made it alive if she was on his place during the Kenny standoff. Plus she actually eats and gets enough sleep.
Just because someone is smart, doesn't mean they will uncover the identity of the FT, and devise a plan to capture her. She didn't know that letting Armin live would come back to haunt her, so on that, you are wrong.
Historia killed a titan fine and was never shown to have problems in training or combat, and no one complained about her spot in top 10. She may not be real top 10 material but she's not a weakling like him.
We probably will, and there are already a lot of theories floating around here that relate to it.
Sparing him by itself gave her away in Armin's eyes. She spent enough time in his presence to recognize his perceptiveness and abilities, especially with how clever she is herself.
There probably is a correlation between the two, considering Mikasa and Levi have been the best we have seen so far, and they don't have any similarities other than at how strong they are. You can probably get away with more maneuvers when you are stronger, so that's probably it.
Again, have Armin/Annie ever interacted with each other outside of that good person Annie talk? How can you just assume Annie knows everything about Armin? She mostly keeps to herself, and doesn't talk to anyone.
The stronger you are (more training, muscles, etc) the less fragile. Something that could potentially kill a normal soldier like getting thrown to a tree by a Titan probably would just break Ackermans' ribs.
>Historia killed a titan fine
By the way, was it intentional or just a coincidence that her fighting pose was the exact same was Eren? I even think someone compared the panels.
It's ok anon, Mike will live on forever in our hearts.
It was on his blog that he was the one who gave away the character info for the anime description. Including height and wight.
>not knowing about Sasha being definitelu kil
>implying Connie or Erwin will make it
>implying all of BRAY will die
Editor-kun cried because Sasha's death scene was that touching.
>who doesn't care if his bff is impaled
It's not easy loving the EAr friendship.
Happy birthday, Isayama-sensei.
mfw he's a Virgo just like me.
I thought that was a given. Is it possible to be intelligent enough to do the shit Annie saw him doing, but still unable to realize the titan who spared him might've been one of his comrades, then review the other clues and connect the dots?
If you seriously thought Annie would intentionally spare Armin, knowing that he had the potential to fuck up her life, then you are just wrong. Annie didn't spend much/any time with Armin, so she wouldn't know exactly how smart he is. Coming up with battle plans against titans is totally different than putting together scattered clues that point to Annie being the FT.
Yes you can. Stop overreacting to the' whoa'. The editor thought people would go 'whoa' when they found out armin killed someone, he didn't say 59 was going to fucking blow your minds and answer every single question you have.
His Excellent Royal & Imperial Majesty Captain-General-Field Marshall-Lance Corporal Dr. Levi Rivaille Jaeger-Ackerman-Reiss, by the grace of the Goddesses and blessed by the Trinity of Gary Stus, Emperor of Mankind, King of the Three Walls, Commander of the Scouting Legion, Garrison and Military Police, Coordinate of all Titans, Conqueror of the Galactic Empire, Caliph of Islam, Bishop of Rome, Avatar of Vishnu, Q, Supreme Lord of all the Universes and Multiverses
I think she was aware of him being able to do something against her if she had left him live. Just look at her face. She was probably doubting herself, and if Jean didn't interrupt her, she might have killed him.
58 was pretty action packed, but was lacking in the development.
59 was lacking in a bit of everything
60 was actually good. We got Hanji action and her little side story completed. We get Levi interrogating an CMP guy along with possible reinforcements (Enemy or Ally?), and we got majestic Erwin.
>If you seriously thought Annie would intentionally spare Armin, knowing that he had the potential to fuck up her life, then you are just wrong
You don't know Annie, do you? Half of everything she did was just her consciously shooting herself in the foot.
>Coming up with battle plans against titans is totally different than putting together scattered clues that point to Annie being the FT.
It all boils down to perceptiveness and strategic skill. Armin excels at both and it's obvious to absolutely everyone around him, especially other smart people. Annie did not need to know him personally to realize that, spending time around him as trainees and participating in his plans was more than enough.
At first I thought this was supposed to be a fanart of Isayama until I opened the pic.
>I think volume 14 has had the best sales so far
Really? I'm amazed SnK is still doing so good. I was thinking it made have been a quick fad that would go over soon, but it's been a year since the anime ended and the manga sales are still going strong.
What does this mean for the series' future?
All the shingekis with an obscene amount of body hair while licking his toe nail clippings?
Fujos are good for something after all. Erwin's dream story translated:
Erwin Smith doesn’t dream.
Actually he doesn’t have enough sleep, and he sleeps deeply, so he barely realizes that he was dreaming.
“Well, it’s not a nightmare right~”
“You sure sleep efficiently.”
“And, once you wake him up, then he’ll wake up. He’s really a man who’s born to be a commander.”
When they talk about this with Hanji of the Survey Corps, it was surprising.
“Not like I don’t have any dreams at all… It’s just that I try to rest my brain, in order to gain some consciousness.”
“Then, Erwin used to have strange dreams as well?”
A strange dream… Erwin thought of something.
When Erwin just joined Survey Corps, he often had nightmares thanks to his regrets and horrors.
During those times, he saw people being ‘eaten’ by titans – a gruesome way to kill people, especially from Survey Corps.
“So… I barely sleep. If I do sleep, I’ll have scary dreams about titans.”
“Me too. I’ll feel really scared and angry.”
“That’s out expreience as newbies in the Survey Corps… by the way, recently there are many volunteers who know about titans.”
Listening to Hanji and Mike’s conversation made Erwin laugh, as he took his red tea.
“Soon after I became commander… I hardly ever dream.”
Erwin stood there, holding half of his dead comrade’s arm.
“From the beginning until now… I haven’t made any progress…”
That’s a dream Erwin had shortly after he became commander. A dream left a deep impression in his memory.
“Commander… it’s your fault…”
The titan opened its big mouth, and from inside its throat, a soldier who should be dead appeared, with half of his face gone.
“You killed us…”
“Right, that’s my decision… I did it!”
His hands trembled, almost dropping the arm he was holding. Suddenly the arm moved, grabbing Erwin’s neck.
“You too, atone with your death.”
The titan saw that he was no longer moving, and as it opened its mouth to eat Erwin –
“You over there, what happened!”
“It’s really dangerous, come up!”
Suddenly the head of the titan that was going to eat Erwin fell, and someone stretched out his hand to grab Erwin to the horse.
“You guys are supposed to keep moving forward.”
Mike gave a nod, a warning.
Right… just as Erwin thought so, the blue sky faded away~
And the dream ended.
“Ah, right… by sacrificing their happiness, I can keep doing what I am supposed to do.”
Pausing his nostalgia, Erwin smiled.
“What? You were about to be attacked by a titan, then?”
“No… in that dream, I was scolded by a comrade, and then I thought about my own mission. Becoming a commander requires me to make ruthless decisions.”
The comrade he talked about was Levi and the others, however he said nothing about it.
“Oh… so you can sleep in peace now. I envy you~”
“You’re too distracted.”
“Levi too! When your comrade is hurt, you have nightmares, one of your teammates told me so.”
“You guys are fine the way you are… only I need to lose people.”
Erwin Smith doesn’t dream, he only faces reality.
If you say he’s not human, he has no objectinos.
Because no matter what, the current person he is must rely on his friends in order to stand tall.
No a ''comrade'' Levi in this case was inside a titan's mouth and he yelled at him, blaming him for everything. And then the arm of another dying solider almost strangled him.
Yes. The soldier was in the titan, then the severed arm tried to choke him and the titan tried to eat him.
>Suddenly the head of the titan that was going to eat Erwin fell, and someone stretched out his hand to grab Erwin to the horse.
They saved him.
>“No… in that dream, I was scolded by a comrade, and then I thought about my own mission. Becoming a commander requires me to make ruthless decisions.”
>The comrade he talked about was Levi and the others, however he said nothing about it.
>The comrade he talked about was Levi and the others
>and the others
Unless they were all in that mouth it wasn't just Levi.
Also HLM scolded him in their own ways. In more productive ways.
Sasha and Connie interview from au smartpass
Sasha: I want to marry someone who can fill up my stomach!
Connie: I knew it, you potato girl!
>By the way, Connie, what sort of person pulls at your heartstring?
Connie: You ask me? Of course she has to be real pretty, wealthy, great personality, somewhat mature, and at night, well, it's that...
Sasha: Such a woman don't exist. Even if she does, she's out of your reach, Connie.
Connie: Shut up! She might still exist! Don't you ruin my dream!
- ...Eh, you two are really easy to understand.
Sasha: Please do not lump me together with Connie!
Connie: Don't lump me together with the potato girl!
The soldier was supposed to be dead already.
I really don't think the scolding he was referring to was only dead soldier because dead soldier just wanted to kill him with guilt, while HLM rag him about being in danger and remind him to keep going forward.
> Despite being soldiers, I'm sure (they) are still normal youngsters.
Connie: How was the girls' dorm? I get thrown by the instructors whenever I went there to peep, so it was a mystery to me.
Sasha: That's exactly why people call you stupid... It wasn't very noisy, but we get along well. Mikasa and Annie doesn't talk, but the rest can never stop talking.
>Sasha: I want to marry someone who can fill up my stomach!
>“You killed us…”
>“Right, that’s my decision… I did it!”
>His hands trembled, almost dropping the arm he was holding. Suddenly the arm moved, grabbing Erwin’s neck.
>“You too, atone with your death.”
Jesus. Erwin needs a break.
>>By the way, Connie, what sort of person pulls at your heartstring?
>Connie: You ask me? Of course she has to be real pretty, wealthy, great personality, somewhat mature, and at night, well, it's that...
Just read chapter 56, the torture part. No way would the guy reading the script fall for it. That's retarded. Of course Sanes was close and gonna hear what he was saying what the hell was the point other wise.
They're just tsundere for each other.
>No way would the guy reading the script fall for it
It's not like he fell for it, they forced him to read that. He didn't know Sannes was nearby either, so that's why he sounded surprised.
Just caught up with the manga after dropping it at chapter 50 months ago.
That scene where armin shot that hesitant military police girl was too sad.
Did anyone on /a/ cry for her too?
This just further enforces my belief that armin is pure fucking evil
I wish I could crop out that Eren face.
Not them, but I'm a drawfag too.
I'm the one who drew this.

Ymir can almost never shut up. Have you see her in Utgard anon, only shutting up when Reiner told her to. Also Christa seemed like the social type, Historia is incredibly quiet.
Jokes aside, I'm really a drawfag.
But that poorly drawn kanji thing is mine as well.
>She's probably the type to talk a lot of shit about the other trainees
Hanji's dream wasn't a nightmare, was it? Levi confirmed for having nightmares, (well at least he has a handsome dressed Erwin in it). Now, Erwin is confirmed for not dreaming anymore. All we need is Mike to complete HELM.
Christa and Sasha ships Reiner/Connie
yeap, she trained and had more gainz than Eren.
In spoof on titan, Eren several times comments on Reiner and Mikasas muscles, and how he wants to get built like that too. Maybe he was lazy or maybe hes not good at building muscle.
She's a good actor. Imean she could even feign crying. It could be that she's quiet now because she's depressed but even when we saw her as Christa she seemed more reserved than anything. Also I don't think she was exactly outgoing either, just extremely nice. Ymir is more of the talkative one, especially since she loves poking fun at others.
Anything is fine, and don't worry about that, take your time.
Fujos drool for ErenLevi, fudanshi drool for BR.
Ymir too. And both Ymir/Historia ship BR
Ymir just wanted to have them out of the way.
They witnessed Reiner being kind to Connie and Connie being grateful, saying all he does is getting his ass saved by Reiner.
>All my Armin art has him shipped with Annie
Fudanshi have superior taste as always.
About 40% of my Armin pics are also of him with Annie.
Connie is not lewd, but his body is.
I also have some Eren/Armin.
>cutting Mikasa out of the pic
Stop it Mikasa!
>Levi/Eren stuff is only liked on Pixiv
Isn't there a strip where Annie accuses Armin of staring to her titan ass with lewd intentions?
>Eren several times comments on Reiner and Mikasas muscles, and how he wants to get built like that too
Eren is muscular, though, isn't he? At least in the manga. I know it probably can't compare with Reiner/Mikasa, but still. He's got an eight-pack, for fuck's sake.
I ship any combination of Eren/Annie/Mikasa/Armin
I don't think I have it.
>She's a good actor
Who's the better actor, Eren or Historia?
That means they are only popular in Elevenland.
Id molest him, but then again id also molest Historia.
anyway, Eren went from innocent lost boy, to a complete crazy murderer, so I guess thats well done.
Histoia went froma very caring girl to a girl who doesn't give a shit, thats also a big difference.
>Id molest him, but then again id also molest Historia.
You could try.
Y-you have blonde hair and blue eyes?
I think I could molest Historia.
Molest Eren would be a lot more problematic... but I think one can dream. Maybe if I drug him.
>Eren is asexual
I don't think he is, you just need to be extremely direct with him.
No, YOU think it's fucked up and manipulative and that both of them are serial killers.
which is still adorable
