Why does levi look so tired?
Annie's certainly dead.
There will be a big fight in the next few chapters and whoever took the female titan will be revealed at a crucial moment.
Then we will get a chapter-long flash back to Annie's egg being cracked open via Eren/Armin mumbo jumbo
Then she'll be interrogated, probably by Armin
She'll reveal she inherited the titan close to 13 years ago (it will be clear Reiner inherited after her and he has at least a year to live) and will die soon anyway
This will soften the execution scene somewhat
And yeah she'll be eaten
>SnK finishes up
>Somewhat happy ending for some of the characters

>It's actually an SnK sequel about Marley and the other nations going to war with each other
>Titans aren't involved at all because they're redundant
>Minor mention of them and the walls though
>Maybe an SnK character makes a cameo appearance but otherwise about an all new group of characters
>Story ends with a nuclear apocalypse
>Even paradise island gets nuked
>Another sequel manga
>Post apocalyptic story about a group of survivors in vein of things like The Walking Dead
>Titans are back
>Since there's no air or artillery support and survivors just have basic weapons they're a threat to humanity again
>Most of the titans roaming the nuclear wasteland are colossal titans who were freed and survived when the walls were bombed
>Annie finally wakes up and joins the survivors as a main character
>Threadly reminder that Zeke knows how to beat the curse of Ymir
>she has a giant apron made for her titan form
>tucks everyone in at night
>cooks every meal for the entire army, making titanic amounts of food, using her Titan's heat for cooking
>gets angry when people don't wipe their feet on the rug before entering the barracks
Just a hunch. Zeke was hinted to be very special, his ability to turn people into titans and command them is a very crude form of the coordinate, and is not a power of the Beast titan.
>Physically impossible for it to be Mikasa (Non-Eldian)
>Can't be Historia, it just can't be. they need the titan for combat and you don't put your young ruler on the front lines.
It doesn't matter though. The shifter having to be female is an unnecessary constraint.
The next relevant character after Mikasa and Historia is Jean. It seems perfect to me. Jean gets to be made fun of for shifting into a girl.
>Why does levi look so tired?
Isn't he in his fucking 30s? He's pretty much a war vet, witnessing horrors daily. It's surprising he hadn't killed himself before we even met him.
>Zeke was hinted to be very special, his ability to turn people into titans and command them is a very crude form of the coordinate, and is not a power of the Beast titan.
Because he has royal blood and he is keeping it a secret, retard. That's why Marley call him a miracle, because they don't know this.
Someone has to know how to cure titan aids. Isayama lacks the courage and (more importantly) the sway over his editors to actually kill off Eren and Armin from titan aids.
Zeke is the genius (11/10 wits, I know it's databook, sue me) son of a doctor who possesses both royal blood and has canon contact with the titan science research division in Marley. That's a whole lot of plot bullshit thrown in his favour that makes him useful.
Zeke promised Eren that he would come back and save him, mentioning that they were both victims of their father (who is responsible for both of them being shifters in the first place)
Zeke is also nearing the end of his life (<1 year left) and is showing no ill effects from titan aids like Uri and Kreuger did.
>taking down scout ships
Will they reverse engineer the technology and then mobilize the nation to mass produce new weapons and technology to prepare for the upcoming war against Marley?
>It was just meant to be a quick smash and grab, and AT and CT would be too slow for that
>They underestimated the SL
>They wanted to maintain their cover incase they still needed to for some reason
>Isayama didn't think of that
Colossal+armor titans would wreck everyone without trees around. Annie could've done it too if she reached them before they went into the forest, but Bert and Reiner could've just gone for when everyone was returning as the mission was over.
Reminder that they actually now know that anyone eating Annie is being sentenced to death. Sure in Armin's case they didn't know and he was going to die anyway, but now they now.
Admittedly, someone would probably volunteer though.
Many reasons. One, the AT isnt fast enough to run for long periods of time against horses. The CT would be useless in this situation since it's so bulky and slow. It's also implied throughout the show that Annie was the best fighter out of the 3 of them as well as the most adaptable so the FT was the best choice to go after Eren. Also, they werent sure if Eren had the coordinate at this point in time, they only wanted to steal him and send him back to Marley. Annie would have left the island and Reiner and Bertholdt would have stayed to take Historia who was also on their list
My name is Erwin Smith and i'm commander of the survey corps.
I've come to this thread to recruit some strong soldiers for our cause , to save humanity from the titans.
If you want to join please say so and if you don't you better give me a god damn reason!
Nice trips, and I'm a Zekefag myself. I also hate LAME. I just think that Isayama will end up pulling some titan aids cure bs, and that Zeke is a likely candidate for the man with the cure.
Everything nice but wthat's your tax policy?
Maybe I am looking too deep into it
So who will marry Mikasa and make mini ackerhax with her?
We believe in absolute capitalism! You pay for your own food , clothes and house , but you can keep all your money!
That's the spirit brother!
A literal who. Eren, Armin and Levi will die. Jean will probably die but even if he doesn't she won't be with him. So she will find some normal guy and live in peace far away from all this bullshit.
What's wrong /snk/? You're not affraid of titans , are you?
>be reiner, annie and bert
>randomly slice Erens head away at some point when he still trusts you with his life
>run away back to Marley as titans
>Eren's power is now in your continent
>find the random person with the power
Is there ANY reason they didn't just do it like this?
>all titans killed in 1 year
>tfw realize Ymir's confirmed dead and will never marry Historia
reminder that this is why manlet let him die like a bitch.
>alright reiner your turn to guard eren
>*teleports behind him*
>alright guys let's go to sleep now in this cramped area which would get filled instantly killing everyone if colossal titan suddenly appeared inside it
>alright guys let's literally carry our swords that can cut through bone easily with us 24/7 and trust each others 100%
I mean... what was the point of making Annie try to take him solo? Was that really the best plan they could come up with? Why not just transform all 3 of them at the same time middle of some plains at some point so they can just kill Eren really easy and fuck off without any resistance?
Only one person is allowed to scrub the stink off Hange
They were after the coordinate. As far as they knew, Eren might have it, since he's a shifter Marley didn't have. But they didn't know for sure. Realistically, since Marley was missing two, not counting the loss of jaw to Ymir, they shouldn't have held that much hope that Eren had it since by all rights the king of the walls is supposed to have it.
Anyway, they didn't want to put all their eggs in one basket in case Eren didn't have it.
>no 50 metre fall
>Armin somehow survived a 50 metre fall and being cooked alive
Yeah, like them. I always at least expected Ymir to die while protecting Hisu, instead of her going full retard and become suicidal in seconds over a fact she knew for years. Not to mention what she said in the letter after turning back and the whole talk about a second chance in life in the flashback just look odd now, after Isayama's hack writing.
you do realise that it could have been reborn into someone on the island right? and then they would have to search all over again, and you wouldn't really know who has the power until that person is reasonably old, so they would have had to wait a decade or so, at the very least
isn't the strenght of a titan related to the person who has it? Ymir had a shitty mindless form, so even with Jaws she was kinda crap, Galliard seems much stronger. Both Owl and Eren also look much stronger than Grisha did, who just looked fat in his SnK
so shouldn't Armongs colossal titan be weaker than that of Bert? Bert was a giant, and one of the strongest among the trainees, while Armin is a manlet weakling
Yes, the strenght of the titan depend solemnly on the strenght and endurance of the shifter. If the shifter can't fight for shit the titan can't fight for shit. At least that's what it is untill now.
And the thing with the falls is those people survived without magic spine juice. Armin's injuries don't even need to be survivable, just not instantly fatal. Landing spine first on the peak of a roof like he did should kill him pretty damn fast though. Its an easy scene to fix, don't make him quite as crispy and have the roof be a rotten piece of shit that can break his fall.
Why do people keep saying "soon" or "eventually" about this scene? It's obviously going to take at least 10 years to animate, and more likely it just won't be in the anime at all.
Would the manga have been better if Eren was a girl?
Do you think she's right?
From the description I thought it was a room escape game, but the video only shows the player having to pick the right choice in dialogue after randomly clicking around in the room, no puzzle solving whatsoever. I'll have to watch some more videos to judge it though.
The different titans represent the different aspects of the original titan, Ymir Fritz
>Colossal titan : she was colossal
>Coordinate : mother of all Eldians
>Female titan : she had tits
>Attack titan : she was reckless
>Cart titan : her favorite position was doggy-style
>Armored titan : she had armor?
>Jaw titan : she was agile, had pointy teeth n shit
>Beast titan : ???
>??? : ???
I just realised Grisha probably brought Eren along to meet Mikasa that day because of this
Zeke will go back to Paradis, and Levi will be all like, muh promise and rip him to shreds
having to obsessive lesbians in one show would be weird though, BUT it would be funny if Jean had a crush on Eren and not Mikasa
>Reckless agile colossal titan with tits
If Grisha remembered then his reaction was probably pretty funny the day Eren talked about he new friend he made, Armin, or when he visited the Ackermans and found out they named their daughter Mikasa.
Imagine being a Marleyan and seeing poor Annie on the streets.
You take her into your home and give her food and a warm bed for the night.
In the middle of the night you crawl into bed with her.
She never tells anyone about it because she knows it wouldn't matter, she's just a filthy Eldian and worth less than dirt.
V-Valhalla exists, r-right?
GRIM REMINDER SOON
POTTERY INCOMING, if Isayama mirrors chapter one by repeating those lines I might even forgive him for Armongs survival
We can hope. I still feel so bad for Bert. He was so cool before Isayama Armong'd him. It wouldn't have been so bad if it was Erwin.
Marley deserves it for encouraging genocide among Eldians, and actually convincing some asaholea to go trough with it.
Eren saw how his mom got eaten, there's no forgiving that.
It being over the top was the best bit about it though.
I'm glad Isayama didn't chicken out and have it happen off panel or anything. Bert screaming while his head was crunched was great.
>tfw patiently waiting for all the episodes to come out
>so i can watch it all in one night
hows the anime so far bros?
>Warriors reach the sea, getting ready to board their ships to paradise
>Suddenly an explosion
>Eren appears as a titan
>Warriors shift, getting ready to fight him
>"And then humanity recieved a grim reminder"
>The sea starts bubbling
>"Of just how small they are"
>Army of colossal titans marches from the ocean
>You didnt read the manga right?
Marley is a backwards nation, they are used to relying on titans and didn't develop conventional weaponry, and even other nations wouldn't be able to beat millions of colossals
The anime did this chapter more justice than it that.
Fedora uprising shouldn't be a thing.
Unironically much better than season 1. Episode 6 is one of the best episodes of anime I've ever seen in general, say whatever you want about "muh mainstream" but that reveal was stunning.
I hope you don't mean those brainwashed warrior cadets? Because they are anything but innocent. Especially Gabi. That slut has to be burned alive for impersonating civilian on the battlefield.
>brainwashed child soldiers
>somehow not innocent
Anon, they are victims.
No country would be able to slow much less stop an army of colossal titans. In the future yeah but right now it's impossible. And Marley don't even fight vs titans usually. They also have the worst tech in the world. If Eren would be able to actually control those titans and they could cross the ocean Marley would be destroyed in days.
Stop making fun of a (temporary) cripple.
>tfw realising my boy Reiner won't get a happy ending at this rate.
No. They have 3DMG technology already, and you would be surprised what cornered humanity can do, and how fast is technological advancement. CTs are just big, they are no different from mindless small titans otherwise.
>They have 3DMG technology already
>3DMG being relevant vs steaming colossals
>surprised what cornered humanity can do
They would be in the same position that Paradis was when Shingashina started.
>They have 3DMG technology already,
they don't actually, MT recovered one set, but they never once brought it up again, not even during that conversation with the general, and they have no one to do the actual training - bert is dead, annie is in a crystal, so what Reiner alone will train an army? and keep in mind that even walldians who had to use 3dmg to survive mostly just fucking suck at it
the SL lost around 30% of its members on every expedition they had, Marleyans wouldn't stand a chance against an army of colossals
>They would be in the same position that Paradis was when Shingashina started.
So in less than a few months titans are whipped out.
You're really dumb if you think Eren will win from the entire world/billions of billions of humans.
Reminder that, given the apparent rate of technological advancement in the series, there's less than 30 years before someone creates a certain bomb that can wipe out an entire city, or Paradis and all its inhabitants.
Are you retarded? They are one country of many that is hated by everyone else. The moment other countries would sniff a problem in Marley's backyard they would be attacked again as it was when they lost CT and FT.
>So in less than a few months titans are whipped out
Yeah normal titans that were just wandering around the island without any purpose or coordination. Army of fucking CTs with clear goal and coordinated with coordinate power will fucking wreck everything in their way. Marley are fucking doomed if that happens.
I don't think that's right. Bort took one when they fled in clash of the titans, but Reiner didn't have one.
Reiner was using that one when he was hiding in the walls during the second battle of shinganshima, but when Pieck snatched him up, he no longer had it.
You're joining wrong conversation and bring meaningless facts to it. After that you confess to being ignorant of the topic of said conversation. You're fucking retarded beyond saving.
those were a bunch of mindless titans led by child soldiers, Eren and Armong managed to crash out 32 marley ships with no survivors, they are more experienced, they have the coordinate, and their tech is moving forward too. Eren can easily beat any of the shifters left in the hands of Marley and Armong can just go nuclear like Bert did, and wipe any and all regular infantry out
How many years ago did the Paradisers invent the 3DMG?
They've only been on Paradis for 100 odd years and none of the living characters (some of which are over 50) mention the invention of the 3DMG.
>not graduating top 10 and joining the Military Police
>The ones so far went down pretty easily.
what? Bert wiped out most of SL, who are anti-titan supersoldiers. Its also possible that if Eren uses the coordinate, he can actually give them complex orders and use them as nukes too
>That's actually stupid as fuck. It doesn't take skill to push around civillians.
That was a great idea you idiot. How else do you make people train as hard as they can? You give the best ones a prize. And there is no better prize than a right to join MP.
so now that the best reveal is out, and the season ends with the coordinate reveal the best scenes we have to look forward to is
and Berts meltdown. Its gonna be a cool season overall
I was already feelsy from how Reiner sounded as he was breaking down in the last episode, I can't imagine how it's going to feel when Bertolt has his breakdown.
back when they were on those trees they should have just fed eren to some mindless titan and ran off with that other person
well next season will have 3dmg gunfights and armin molestation, so its not completely hopeless
Animated stumpy Eren should be good.
When Isayama wrote sequence where Gabi has a "genius" plan to gain an upper hand by pretending to be civilian do you think he actually believed it to be smart? It was shown as something actually heroic and the comment "it's a warcrime" sounded more like "look at this dumb sjw thinking that war is all flowers and roses, rules of war are for losers". Are nips actually retarded? Do they think that this is an ok thing to do? Because of bitches like her war is a much worse place for civilians than it should be. Makes me mad desu.
Who has the talented voice required for such a complex role?
People like you should be castrated. If all was fair we would be still using chem weapons left and right. There are things that all parties agree to avoid as they are as damaging for everyone as they are effective.
>The way he flails his stumps
10/10. Best scene Isayama ever drew.
I just recently realized how dangerous of a character Ymir
was. She knew literally everything and had absolutely no agenda to follow, she could very easily divulge her information once she was certain her new life wasn't in danger. If the Survey Corps had managed to capture Ymir that day there wouldn't even be a reason for them to go to the basement anymore.
War crimes are only crimes to the loser. The victor decides who is punished. The US should've been held to account over dresden and hiroshima/nagasaki, but they didn't cause they won.
You liked Ymir because she caused literally every death in the Scouts Legion?
If she had only talked so many people would be alive.
Don't assume that you know how nips would see it. Just because you think that genocide is something bad doesn't mean that it would be the same to them. He's defending his glorious country so everything is permitted. The more he kills the better soldier to his country he is.
I don't think so.
The only reason BRA's attack on the walls was successful was because there were shitloads of eoten outside waiting to get in. That's not the case in Marley. At most Eren and Armin could do a shitload of property damage and risk getting themselves caught and ruining everything.
>b-b-but she was living for herself
>goes ahead and kills herself to help her enemies kill her waifu
Her character was the most inconsistent and as the result the most retarded in entire manga.
The SL has been committing war crimes left and right, Gabi's minor act was nothing compared to what they've done. People actually applaud and defend all the atrocities the "heroes" have carried out like all the torture and executions of enemies they've captured and taken prisoner.
>The SL has been committing war crimes left and right
Against who? There wasn't any war yet.
>enemies they've captured and taken prisoner
They haven't even captured one Marley yet. What in the fuck are you talking about?
Civil what? This is undercover operations as the ones MP are doing. Ever heard about secret police? There is literally nothing wrong about doing whatever you want to the people of your country and it has nothing to do with wars. Unless they capture and torture someone from different country it doesn't matter at all and has no relevance to discussion.
>There is literally nothing wrong about doing whatever you want to the people of your country
There is literally nothing wrong about doing whatever you want to the people of your country
Are you doubting Isayama? EVERYTHING was planned. Yes even Ymir flip flopping on everything about her character. It's all a master plan by one of the greatest contemporary writers.
He's kind of right though. I suppose Marley and Paradise are technically at war, but Paradise didn't even know anything about it.
He's very wrong about that, but he's right that it's not a war crime.
Even if you're going to disqualify what they did in the civil war, BRA came from a different country that Paradis is at war with. Levi threatened to torture Annie and it's proven that he would have gone through with it. Hanji tried to murder Reiner and was only stopped by Pieck. EMA and their lapdogs carried out the murder of Bert.
>Her character was the most inconsistent and as the result the most retarded in entire manga.
the only mildly satisfactory explanation is that when Eren triggered the coordinate it fucked up her brain
I don't defend them. But it's their right to do whatever they want with their own people. It's not my business. I took commies as example because they were the most autistic about killing their own people.
War is war.
Arguing about any legitimate way to do it is stupid.
It's filthy, people die, there is nothing honorable about it.
So what if some actions are crimes?, if they help you win you are gonna use them, no matter the side.
See every war ever.
No war is free of "crimes", only the victor decides who is a criminal and who isn't.
The SC didn't start the conflict with the coup though. There was fighting before there was a coup. One military faction (the MP) were hunting down another on the orders of the government, and the SC fought back, rebelling against the government. The coup was the end of the conflict, not the cause of it. The cause was different military and government factions fighting each other over power.
well there is no reason for other shifters to get fucked up, Erens predecessors were just like him, they all wanted freedom and were all on the walldian side. Reiner and Bert inherited their titans from Marleyans they ate, so again, no conflict of interest
only Ymir got a titan that was previously best friends with Reiner and Bert, and was controlled by marleyans for generations
No, Erwin was planning a coup. He wanted a bloodless one, but didn't believe he could do it. The govt decided to foil his coup and thus blood was spilled. In the end the coup succeeded and the military took over the civilian government.
Hey I could use some despair after last week's episode, sounds good already.
see the jerries and brits in africa, both sides maintained all the laws of war and fought more or less humanely, it was even dubbed as the gentlemen war
a lot of smaller scale medieval conflicts were also fought while maintaining laws of war, such as a nobles right to ransom and not slaughtering the besieged side when they concede the castle/city they were garrisoning, these things weren't done out of the kindness of hearts, it was done because if such laws are not maintained the war becomes a much more horrid experience for everyone involved. Sure such laws were never absolute and were broken whenever it was expedient to do so - see the slaughter of french nobles by the english after Agincourt, but they were frequently respected too
>They have 3DMG technology already
I wouldn't be particularly surprised if Marley didn't invest heavily in it desu. They don't fight titans enough to necessitate pouring in the resources necessary to get lots of 3DMG troops ready in just 5 years.
They could, but I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't. Isayama could do it either way and it would be believable.
Didn't the government start the conflict by killing Pastor Nick and getting the Reeves company to attempt to kidnap Eren and Historia?
Nick is definitely killed before Erwin meets with Pixis, and before Erwin's meeting with Nile.
No. Isayama said that he planned to kill all volume one characters when he was creating them so it's easy for him to kill them. Characters that were created after volume one are harder for him to let go but that doesn't stop him from doing so.
Fair enough, he was seen with them. So the MP just put two and two together and guessed/figured out he was being threatened? That would make sense.
She's the mary sue of the series, her only weakness is Eren supposedly so I can't see her dying, at least not begore Eren does.
Also remember, 1st chapter is titled "To You, 2000 years from now" and it starts with Eren dreaming about a short haired Mikasa telling him "See you later". What kinda fucked up shit is that?
>So Eren, Mikasa and Armin are confirmed kill?
Have you read chapter 1? It seems that they are all about to die there. Eren wouldn't cry for himself he was probably crying because Mikasa was going to die after him too.
it's your stupidity that triggers people, armin is a pathetic crybaby who couldn't deal with pressure and had to rely on jean for the plans in shiganshina arc
Eren too is a crybaby who gives up easily(uprising arc) if you tell him truth
nigga do you even berserk, at this point you you're just making me laugh
Remember that when vol 1 came out Isayama's mindset was still on "everybody dies in the end", so I am not sure if that is still the case now.
No war is "gentlemanly" or "humanely".
If by raiding the enemy camp at night when they are sleeping I can avoid sacrificing my own comrades, be sure I'm gonna do it.
If killing the head goverment after a battle can grant methat there will be no uprisings, be sure I'm gonna do it.
If I can avoid a greater death toll with just specific killing, be sure I'm gonna do it.
If I lose, sue me. If I win, I'll be the hero who saved many lives.
Is Annie aging in the crystal?
Are her 13 years ticking by or is she frozen in time?
He's shit but at least he's not a garbage character like Armong. I haven't hated Griffith like I hated Armong ever. I can understand villain characters I can't understand characters like that lil coconut shit.
yfw she comes out of the crystal when all the dust has settled and she's still 15
Griffith's character is well writer atleast, Isayama is a hack who has no shame admitting that he got influenced by the anime and fans' love while Miura says he regrets nothing and would change nothing if he gets to write his story again, just goes to show Isayama is a pussy and doesn't do what he wants to
