What's your ideal endgame?
Annie is love
Annie is life
I love Annie from the bottom of my heart and the core of my
Annie a miracle of the universe
Annie might've done some things wrong, but she's still a beautiful person inside and out
>I thought the king of the walls would at least have the will to defend Paradis and his walls, jesus.
The sad part is Uri and Frieda did want to, but as soon as they got the coordinate, they got brainjacked. Having seen it with his dad, brother, and daughter, I guess Rod just gave up and accepted that "the collective wisdom containing humanity's history" was right to fuck them over.
It was just a fucking curse though.
That the world of Shingeki no Kyojin was an experiment to create the ultimate being by the Precursors through the use of organic nanites but ended up as a disaster creating Titans.
One of the Precursors is the Earth Devil, ultimate bad guy, who tempted Ymir into eating his biological weapon that could turn her into the first Titan.
>ywn never have nightmares of a midget killing you for all eternity
She seems to be standing behind him
But the only explanation for >>157418410 are either a box or that Erwin is sitting down
I feel bad for anniebot. I mean, the endgame anon at least has two of his favorite characters being fairly relevant to the story and somehow still alive despite everything. While anniebot will most likely get a half assed ending for their fav like it happened with Ymir.
I don't know man, anniebot's dedication was great but it the end was it really worth it?
Erwin was a perfect match for the colossal titan, they're both skilled at slaughtering people by the hundreds
>But at least Annie in th crystal got more development than mentalfag's pairing.
I'm not sure about that. Anything and anyone's been getting more development than Annie.
> Also annibot dedication was harmless, this new spam is godposting level.
I kinda like EH just cause the character interaction aren't one-sided, or kinda focused on one subject all the time, as opposed to Eren's norms. I'd probably be content if they remained good friends I guess.
So what you're saying is Erwin/Bert is a match made in heaven.
I think it's for the best to drop it until it's ended or check back every few months. Following this shit monthly for four years just so you can see your favorite in a flashback must be turture.
>Following this shit monthly for four years
hurts doesn't it? time flies. I remember days when ppl would argue about Levi's name, claiming his name was Rivai/Riberi/Rival and other such trash....
nah, I read it for the plot but if something stupid happens I can't ignore it and go on just like that, his asspulls were too much, anymore of his hack writing would do it for me
Annie got her moments, those were little, but at least we got to know the conflict with her dad, and her interactions with BR, EMA and Marlowne and Hitch. Even if hange is now commander, we barely know about the character, can be a cool leader with the right attitude but still is more like a redshirt, one important of course.
But is true that Annie is just a lost case, unless she appears in the timeskip helping Eren and humanity... and that's asking too much.
Fuck you OP
post yfw eren survives despite having the titan cancer
personally I don't enjoy watching ppl being stupid.
it's possible they would have eren eat her but then levi could cut her out of him once they deem the crystal could be dissolved... just a thought.
i doubt eren would eat her, that's not necessary, it would make more sense to pass on the power to someone
I think the crystal can't dissolve but it might be destroyed using the new weapon they made
>i doubt eren would eat her,
I think he's swat her like a fly at this point. I would if I was him and I say that a probably the biggest annie shipper on this board.
>that's not necessary, it would make more sense to pass on the power to someone
I proposing a scenario in which they would try to wake Annie up to gain intel. you can have some ferral titan eat her when that fails still.
>I think the crystal can't dissolve but it might be destroyed using the new weapon they made
>I think he's swat her like a fly at this point.
besides the point was he doesn't need to and anyway what is that conclusion based on anon
>I proposing a scenario in which they would try to wake Annie up to gain intel.
they don't need any intel, they have the book, bert's memories and the marley soldiers possibly from the ships that came
> I say that a probably the biggest annie shipper
hard to believe that, either way it's not about shipping at this point
She's the greatest, I love her. I'm glad she has
fans like you that like to talk about her.
>besides the point was he doesn't need to and anyway what is that conclusion based on anon
based on the level of betrayal we saw him feel. hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but that goes for men too. she's responsible for his mother's death and then had the gall to act like his friend. any sane dude would punch through her skull.
>they don't need any intel, they have the book, bert's memories and the marley soldiers possibly from the ships that came
not really conclusive. you can always do better with more intel.
Ok, steampunk RPG-7.
>hard to believe that, either way it's not about shipping at this point
But it do.
Annie is a good girl who did nothing wrong. She deserves headpats.
And all the things she wants. Soft toys, cute hoodies, new sports equipment, books, everything.
>ywn marry Annie
Fuck this gay earth
you can do a google search yourself, right?
>based on the level of betrayal we saw him feel. hell hath no fury like a woman scorned but that goes for men too. she's responsible for his mother's death and then had the gall to act like his friend. any sane dude would punch through her skull.
someone didn't read the manga from the beginning it seems, he never had any anger towards annie, never, there is actual proof
>not really conclusive. you can always do better with more intel.
you're just forcing it, i doubt someone like any would speak more than soldiers and bert's memories, she'll just crystallize again
>Ok, steampunk RPG-7.
I don't want to marry her. But she does deserve the best possible partner in marriage.
I would normally agree, but I think there is someone for everyone. Annie just happens
to deserve the very best of the best. At least she has good friends for now.
I'm not creepy.
No problem friendo, I'm just here spreading the good word.
Annie looks good in modern causal clothes
Annie always looks good desu
She does. And yes, I got there first, but only by a little bit. It's a lovely picture, regardless.
Indeed, but I'll need to leave you to post about her, I have work in the morning. Goodnight anon.
>TFW they made him deleted Armin
I bet Isayama was mad.
Hitch is definitely cute, I just like Annie better.
>Isayama: "Oh Armin, everyone hates you but me"
Yeah and she was shocked when she realized it. I don't think she ever thought about that.
To be fair, there were really good reasons to want to keep Erwin alive.
Armin is highly intelligent, but Erwin is a leading figure inside the Walls. He was probably one of the most important people amongst them.
I feel sorry for Hange there to be honest. She doesn't know that Erwin doesn't want to keep going. She wasn't there when he admitted to Levi that he couldn't handle the guilt.
Levi let Erwin die for absolution. Erwin dying for an honest cause after his deceptions and sacrifices of others. Bringing him back would have been cruel.
>Levi: The bastards who created the wall and want Humanity’s extinction…if we don’t get rid of them, people will never gain freedom. That is my reason for any choices I make.
>Interviewer: And by “choices” you mean…
>Levi: Everything. Who should live…or who should die…
>Interviewer: So what you’re saying is, if you have to exchange the life of a comrade or subordinate, you would still make that choice without hesitation?
>Levi: You people…who do you think I am? Am I a monster who will do anything to reach a goal? Or am I a God who wanders among the masses?
>Interviewer: Neither. The one we’re interviewing is Captain Levi - as a human being.
>Levi: What a straightforward answer…forget it. No matter what, there is no such thing as an “impossible choice.” Just write that as of right now, I plan on choosing Humanity.
Well, she did in the Manga so she will in the Anime
She closed her eyes after the speech, she was about to kiss him
>completely unrelated quote that does not prove that Erwin wants humanity destroyed
W E W L A D sasuga, interview-kun
You also completely missed the irony that despite Erwin chasing his goal, he benefited Levi's goal of fighting for humanity. Which Levi himself admits, in actual mango canon (pic related), not shekel grabbing interviews.
She didn't hesitate to use strength to drag Mikasa away from an overpowered Levi. When she felt her own arm was gonna get crushed just from Mikasa's grip, she realized she had to convince Mikasa with words and buy time so Levi could regain his composure.
Actually, fuck Levi and Hange in that whole ordeal. In the end, it was Erwin who chose to go.
I'm seeing this character interview often being thrown around. What's the point here?
He care about mikasa but not romantically.
One sided love here.
At least something happened in the time skip, eren will not be into relationship because he doesn't care about love.
He's doomed anyway
That's why manlet didn't want to lose Erwin, he was still helpful for humanity. That's until he remembered Kenny and thought he wouldn't keep going if he wasn't drunk on something. In the end, that wouldn't benefit humanity, because from his perspective Erwin simply wouldn't be able to keep going, unlike Armin. That's why his "personal emotions" made him decided that was the place where Erwin would die.
What? She doesn't close her eyes.
Unlikely anything happened in the timeskip with Marley sending ships and all and him too busy in the front plus there's also the distraction of him getting more memories from his predecessors.
It's your word against everything there's is to prove this. Why do you think Erwin's creppy smile was relevant to the plot? manlet listening to Armin's dream? the "is this more important than humanity?" part from chapter 72? Kenny's last words? it's not my fault you live in your deluded world where manlet did this for Erwin and not for humanity itself.
Anyways, the results are right there. Erwin is dead, Armin is alive and manlet chose that himself.
Because they both are crying for different reasons. Their faces are expressing different emotions, while crying.
I don't have a strong opinion one way or another whether she was trying to kiss him or not, but saying her eyes were closed is just plain false.
It's one or the other. It's not like Erwin gave up on his dream after all. Manlet was more than aware that Erwin wanted nothing more than to see the basement. He could witness it himself, despite being on the brink of death, Erwin still dreamed
about the basement. He wasn't ready to go, yet manlet chose to do just that. In the end, it's what he'd regret the least.
Because i'm not some mindless fujo who doesn't understand all the build up to manlet's decision. Or the reason behind Isayama's panels. Again, why do you think all the elements I mentioend were there? just because?
Anon, you're beyond salvation. I'll just leave you be.
I'm not saying he wasn't close to Erwin. He was as sad as Hanji over him because they were friends, still,manlet didn't let him live because Erwin had nothing to be drunk on after the basement. It wasn't benefitial for humanity from that point of view, which is something only manlet would consider.
>He didn't pushed her
Only point I'm making is her eyes were not closed. Her moving in close enough that Eren has to push her is a valid point.
I just don't think it's definitive either way and I imagine that was intentional on Isayama's part.
Look at the amount of tears on eren's eyes.
Pretty close to the amount of tears on mikasa's eyes.
Eren never closed his eyes after this case but still cried
>Why he chose it
Literally explained here
>All I do is for freedom
>I'm choosing humanity
Erwin wouldn't keep going because the basement is what made him move forward. Manlet let him die so Armin, someone who's not more capable but has a "power" that other lacks, someone who can still keep going, could get the chance to live and benefit everyone in the long run. That's why chapter 72 was necessary. Damn, some of you people can't read for shit.
I know why she cried, thanks to remind me that
I'm just saying that she doesn't necessarily need to close her eyes to cry, which might mean that she closed eyes for something else.
You can act desperately in hopeless situations, she was able to smile with Hannes getting eaten
>Can't understand Levi is explaining the reasons behind all his choices, which is people gaining freedom.
>Anon is this dense
Doesnt' surprise me coming from what's more likely a fujo who still clings to the delusion manlet has given up on humanity to benefit m-muh Erwin.
What the actual fuck? How the hell did anyone come to that conclusion. I'm kind of sad I'm too much of a newfag to have missed this. The asspain from his name being confirmed as Levi must have been incredible.
I think that's exactly what he wanted. But I'm betting the anime will leave no room for debate, especially given the writer who always favors Eremika will be writing the finale, apparently.
I only just caught up with the manga and haven't followed any discussions, but I'm going to assume I'm in the minority when I say that I don't care for where the story has went. It just seems kind of silly.
>to gain a titan's power you must be a titan and then consume the other titan or apparently have little jars of their traits--and you can only be titan people, and if you die before being consumed, some random titan person will magically get it which allows for the edge concentration camps
>something about a devil and titans, building a prospering nation, becoming WWII jews, fleeing to Israel equivalent, not wanting to fight because reasons, now the world is after us because of fossil fuels
>eren isnt a little shit anymore only because the contrast between him now with his two-dimensional persona beforehand is so emphasized, most of the other characters feel like plot devices
I'm not even trying to belittle the series, I'm still reading it. I just think it got really goofy when it went in the direction of being this grandiose epic. I wonder if I'd find it less unappealing had I followed along with the story, chapter by chapter, and slowly eased into this.. grander plot.
The reaction to pretty much everything post serumbowl is far more negative than positive and a lot of the people here still reading are either shippers or people really invested in the story over the long time who just want to see it how ends.
Because anytime Kobayashi is the writer for an episode, we get Eremika filler or at the very least emphasis on their interactions. She also did the season finale for season 1. She deviates from the source material more than any writer.
She was recently announced to be the writer for the upcoming season finale this time too, according to a post I read.
Yet you're the retard constantly calling people fujoshits just because they like Erwin. The only one who makes a big deal about shipping here are triggered shitletfags like yourself.
I liked the reveal and the way you're describing it clearly shows you weren't into it, you're not aware of the terms or how things work and what is what, you're looking at it from the surface
When do we get the next chapter? I'm not familiar with the release schedule.
Deluded fujofag understand that no matter how much you twist reality, it won't be what you think it is. The hard fact is the following; Erwin is dead and that's because manlet felt letting him die and Armin live instead would be what he'd regret the least, despite knowing full well Erwin still wanted to reach the basement and accomplish his dreams.
What's better is that Erwin won't be mentioned nor will he ever be relevant again. That's Isayama's way of telling you to fuck off. The character is done, and so should this stupid fucking argument of manlet doing it for him when that's simply not the case.
Isayama chickening out on Armin dying was a big issue for me. I was impressed that he had the balls to kill off one of the main 3, but he survived.
Armin being dead would have been much more interesting (and not required the bs of him surviving being cooked alive and the fall).
What would it do to Eren as a character? How could the SC cope with losing both Erwin and Armin? Where would their strategies come from? Hange would likely be busy with science, so would Jean need to step up and become more of a leader like Marco said? Would Sasha or Connie ever become relevant? Would Eren be forced to emulate his fallen friend and think more strategically, inheriting his dream and some of his personality?
Some of the new stuff isn't too bad, but my hopes for the future are certainly lowered because of Armin.
Anon, your arguments are as empty as your brain. I'll remind you every month of how little importance Erwin is, and every chapter he's not mentioned I'll shitpost greatly just so you know how wrong you've been all this time, and will continue to be.
I didn't say shit about the retarded manlet. I'm just chiming in because you're always buttblasted about fujoshits even when anons aren't one, and getting overly defensive about your overrated Stu who can do no wrong. Let me guess you're the LHfag?
I thought the season finale was absolute shit. Eren's titan going berserk was such an obvious route to go, which was why it was so great that Isayama didn't do it in the manga.
Thought I read the post from Fuku-shuu on dumblr, but can't find it now. Sorry, Anon. I'll be happy if the info was wrong.
What? At that moment manlet is recalling Kenny's words, which was the foundation, the reason behind his final decision.
Levi is a stupid piece of shit, and he's done many things wrong, but letting Erwin die wasn't one of them.
>I'll remind you every month of how little importance Erwin is, and every chapter he's not mentioned I'll shitpost greatly just so you know how wrong you've been all this time, and will continue to be.
This is very funny to me.
Why can't you idiots understand Levi let Erwin die because he wouldn't benefit humanity anymore? why are you so braindead, and why do you get so buttblasted whenever someone points how idiotic you are?
Come on anon.. "I hated the titans, but we are the titans, and the titans aren't even our greatest enemy anymore! What is life? It's not a lake, it's an ocean." don't try to act like this surface level melodrama is deep.
I don't care about the Gary stu's choice, because that whole event was forced as fuck especially making somebody as stupid as Levi in charge of it. Just fanservice fodder to make him even more important than he needs to be.
Just about the only angry autism we haven't had ITT yet is war crimes-kun, so... Gabi a cute!
That is exactly what happened and it's something that Isayama has been building up since chapter 51. But you know what? I lost my time arguing with blind faggots like yourself. I'll let the narrative do its job and show how stupid you've been while all you can do is flail and wonder, completely ignoring canon.
So be it, I don't care anymore. You can live in your deluded world, it won't change a thing in the end, and that's good enough for me.
Why would Erwin, the one who is depressed and with a death wish, be in charge? He probably had a feeling this was his final stand. If anything Hanji should have been the one to make the decision as she is next in line as commander.
But no, Manletfags can't stand it when he's not the center of attention somehow so Isayama has to cater to their cancer.
Isn't it more likely it's an insecure Arminfag than a manletfag? It's their usual pattern to claim that the only reason someone could possibly disagree with them on a somewhat Armin-related topic is because they're a butthurt shipper.
>implying levi wasnt meant to be an important character
>even though his last name was kept a secret on purpose
>even though we get bits and pieces on his past frequently which most other characters dont get
Oh anon, I simply won't argue with you faggots anymore. But you'll see me shitpost every month about Erwin's irrelevance. It will soon be 11 months since Erwin's death and total irrelevance to the plot, and no amount of delusions will change that. Rejoice.
Im pretty sure levi being an ackerman was in the cards from the get go. I dont see how much more mikasa couldve contributed to that arc at all. She'll get her limelight when they explain more about the asian clan.
Almost all remotely relevant characters are the same race, Eldian. Levi, Mikasa, and Kenny are just about the only exceptions besides some minor characters like Gross and Magath.
>That feel when I finally just read the entire manga and I no longer have to wait a week for 15 minutes of flashbacks and 5 minutes of progress
The anime won't catch up to where the manga is at its pace for many years. It was an amazing read but it sucks knowing I'll never be able to marathon this series or watch a new episode again.
>MFW what happens to Armin
I think it was good if Levi was the one more focused for the little we heard about the Ackermans so far. Mikasa will always be involved anyway, being an Ackerman herself.
But she seems to have even deeper mysteries going for her, beyond those of Ackerman.
I know "the world hates Eldians" but one of Marley's officers said that Owl was making some kind of deal with one of Marley's eastern enemies. Maybe the wall people will actually be able to reach a the enemy of my enemy is my friend situation, and Asians might be part of that.
Can't wait to see Falco deflecting to the side of the good guys when he gets the beast titan.
And? Hanji is also a squad leader and her role is not forced like his is. He literally can do no wrong story-wise, and his OPness removed the suspense and feel of horror from the manga whenever he's involved because you just expect him to bullshit his way through the enemy; such as surviving all those titans with limited gas and blades.
>tfw Isayama doesn't give a shit
>tfw Erwin is nothing more than dust and a few bones in canon
>tfw he didn't even get a proper burial and decomposed on a dirty bed in some cellar
For some reason, I don't really feel any sexual desire for any of the women in this series. I don't know why. None of them act very cute and there isn't enough fan service, so I've just never thought of them that way. I guess if I could fuck any of them I wanted I'd fuck Hange.
I thought the big revelations were very poorly explained, had to read all that shit twice and really think about it to work it out. And I'm still not entirely sure why Zeke wants to kill everyone on the island now that I think about it. I know he wants the coordinate, but why is killing everyone on the island necessary for that? I'm also still not sure why the royal family on the island refused to take any action.
Its a pretty compelling direction I'd say. I like the time skip. I like the much grander scope the series now has to take. I like that it shows that in the rest of the world technology has progressed to a point where having titans isn't the end all be all of military might.
I think she's well integrated to it. Her father was escaping persecution, something explained by Kenny's uncle (or father).
We already were exposed to Mikasa's past and childhood. Since we didn't know Levi's, it made perfect sense to build it from his side and integrate it with Mikasa's end.
The Ackerman subplot isn't even finished yet, we just know the perspective from the generation that was first to be born under the walls.
Zeke's motives are pretty unclear, he didn't even tell the marley he's royal
>why the royal family on the island refused to take any action.
the family wants to take action but it's the will of the145th king that stops it, it's yet to be shown why he's suicidal
To be honest it made sense to me, I really don't come to /a/ so I'm surprised to see people are arguing about it here really. It's been made very clear that Armin is a strong asset to the scout regimen. They gave multiple examples of times when him thinking of or noticing shit saved everyone. Even in that particular battle if it wasn't for him, the Colossal Titan would have just killed everyone and the series would end right there.
Aside from Armin being useful, I think Levi's reasons for letting Erwin die makes sense. Erwin was 100% ready to die. In some way, he wanted to die because he had such extreme survivors guilt. I'm pretty sure most people in the attack on titan universe want to die, but I think Erwin was a tired old man who already served his fellow man as much as he could. He was a broken, crippled man and he was absolutely ready to go. Shortly before that happened, he told Levi he was ready to surrender his dream and had already accepted that.
