The first episode of Chuugakkou is out and chapter 74 spoilers are just around the corner.
And here's some scenes of Ymir and Historia together.
Historia's VA sounded cute when she said Ymir.
Never mind, I found a source. But why is Ymir referred to as "Sobakasu" in the closing credits of episode 4? Is that her last name? Or is it a canonical alternate name she's supposed to be referred to as, in order to obscure her identity as Ymir-sama?
Or, alternatively, has she been referred to by this name in, say, the official end credits of episodes of the anime that have included her voice actor? Or in merchandise that's been sold of her likeness?
I don't get it.
Why did this come out before S2 of the original series?
Also don't watch the Live-Action movies. Not only does it lack yuri, it adds unnecessary het and a awful plot which will leave you feeling dumber.
They didn't want to spoiler her name in the anime, so they came up with a nickname for to list her VA. It's not an official nickname for her. They already messed up though by using her real name for merch and the anime spin off.
Out of curiosity, do you know if the closing credits of the official english dubbed version of the anime refer to her as "Sobakasu" or "Freckles"?
(If you don't know, I can just ask my friend. He's dyslexic, so he can't watch subs, and owns a DVD copy of the series dubbed.)
Which two episodes of the anime did she have lines in? I know there was the episode where she and Krista talked about Sasha, and then later there was the episode where she and Krista were on the rooftops with the other trainees during the mission in Trost district, but I don't remember which episode numbers those were.
>I know there was the episode where she and Krista talked about Sasha
Wikipedia's brief episode summaries seem to suggest that this one is episode 3. "When he comes across Sasha Braus, who is eating a potato, he punishes her by having her run around the camp until sunset and not giving her any food or drink."
>and then later there was the episode where she and Krista were on the rooftops with the other trainees during the mission in Trost district
The episode 6 description says, "When Armin breaks down into tears after Conny asks what happened to his squad, Ymir correctly deduces that they have all died." So she definitely has at least one line in episode 6, which might be what you're referring to.
I thought phone straps were lesbian promise rings.
Didn't notice at first that Historia put her arms around Ymir's neck.
First, the anon was talking about chuugakkou manga. Second, i've seen worse manga drawings and certainly Isayama's isn't bad. Different, yes, but not bad.
Besides, he's gotten good lately.
>Second, i've seen worse manga drawings and certainly Isayama's isn't bad. Different, yes, but not bad.
Look at that hand. Look at it. Last panel. Just… look at it. What even is that?
Yeah, I know, but Erwin SHOULD think there are three people – Bertolt, Reiner, and Ymir.
What would be a surprise to him would be if there were FOUR people – Bertolt, Reiner, Ymir, and BT.
No, what I'm saying is that Erwin should THINK that Ymir is with them, since the last anybody saw, Ymir was leaving with them. The third cup belongs to BT, but Erwin shouldn't be surprised that there IS a third cup, because he should think the third cup belongs to Ymir.
The fact that there is no mention of Ymir at all in the chapter really seems to make it look like Isayama himself has forgotten entirely about her existence.
But why wouldn't Erwin THINK she's on their side? He has no information which would suggest that she abandoned them after she left with them in chapter 50. (Hell, WE have no information to tell us why she would have abandoned them after chapter 50. Ymir's whereabouts and motives are a complete mystery to us, and Isayama is really fucking dropping the ball on this, by having no mention of her these last few chapters.)
I thought they gave us a pretty good reason as to why she went with them. She ate their friend which allowed her to transform, so in her mind, she owes them something. I think everyone else in the group knew that aswell now since she did say it (If I remember this correctly, been a while since I read it), so nobody there would suspect Ymir to work for them either.
Probably because they know she's in danger from Eren. Even he is aware of that and thought if anything she needs help. Maybe they were surprised about the third cup, because they simply don't expect her to be alive anymore at this point. Either that or Isayama never planned Ymir to be on BR's side, which is why the SL never saw her as a traitor since she left. One of the reason is probably Ymir saving Erwin from titan. Also the narrator in ch. 50 even implied that one day they will understand her actions and they noticed that after she left with BR the AT stopped chasing them.
>I thought they gave us a pretty good reason as to why she went with them. She ate their friend which allowed her to transform, so in her mind, she owes them something.
No. She was going to abandon them. Then she saw that Eren had the coordinate, convincing her that there was hope for mankind within the walls. And the last thing Historia told her was to live for herself. Her decision to go with Bertolt and Reiner makes ZERO sense, given the context.
I'm convinced she has some sort of secret motive. I think, based on Ilse's Notebook, that Ymir was once the queen-beyond-the-wall, but that she was overthrown, possibly by BT. I think she's going to try to take her throne back.
When Ymir and Historia last met, they were but soldiers. When they meet again, they will meet as fellow queens.
Anyway, both you and >>1886734 are still missing my point: Erwin saw Ymir leaving with Bertolt and Reiner. As far as he knows, there is no reason to think she would not still be with them. Therefore, he should not be surprised to see three soup cups, and should simply assume that BT's cup must have been Ymir's.
>I thought they gave us a pretty good reason as to why she went with them.
That reason was pretty stupid, at least if you look at the overall situation. If it was also to help the SL somehow then that would be something completely different.
Maybe Ymir lied to them? And the only true reason to go to them is save Historia and the SL?
But yes, her reason is pretty retarded. Isayama had to think of something quick since the manga got extended.
>I think she's going to try to take her throne back.
I don't think Ymir intends to go back to her old life, she most likely hated her old life. Even if she was a queen or some sort of royalty.
It would make no sense. Ymir wasn't shown with BR when they confronted MT, she was not shown with them when they were sitting outside the tents either. Only MT was last seen with BR and he was clearly still with them when the SL returned to Shinganshina, so stop being retards. If she's with them then that means she's against the SL.
>If she's with them then that means she's against the SL.
Which would be completely against Ymir's character. Historia is with the SL (Ymir probably has no idea she's the queen now) so she'd rather die than go against her.
Seriously, y'all are so dramatic. Ymir is not relevant to the story yet and we will know when she will be.
Is this one okay to post? It's clearly YH because of Ymir's claws but
Why not? Since it's Titanmir it still counts as YH.
Yeah, that artist draws some really good YH art. I think she also drew some cute FH.
Yes but as far as the SL knows - Reiner, Bertholt and Ymir escaped together. Whether she is with them as an ally or a prisoner, it would make sense for them to assume that she could still be with them.
Even if they thought that she was already dead/escaped etc. by that point, it still seems weird for them to be so shocked by the third soup cup.
Rather than reacting with "but there is only supposed to be two enemies?!" it would make much more logical sense to think "Ahh, so perhaps Ymir is still with them."
Rather than automatically assume its a completely new stranger (even though it is.)
The fact that they have barely mentioned Ymir at all is stupid anyway. If they truly did think she was not on BR's side, wouldn't they still be discussing her potential rescue or her motivations rather than apparently forgetting she ever went with them? To me, THAT seems retarded
No, it's not weird because they already know Ymir isn't taking their side and never was. Eren could confirm this to the SL, with Erwin knowing that Ymir was the titan who saved him.
All Ymir has done was for Historia's sake so it wouldn't make sense for her to be there against the SL. So, either Erwin was shocked that Ymir could be with them or there's another one that helps BR.
Their priorities is to seal the wall, not find Ymir. Besides, Ymir left willingly, she wasn't kidnapped.
>wouldn't they still be discussing her potential rescue or her motivations rather than apparently forgetting she ever went with them?
What do you expect them to do? They have no idea where BRA's village is. Also, their current priority is closing the wall and that is already a dangerous mission.
But what >>1886649 was saying, and which I agree with, is that Erwin shouldn't be shocked about the third cup when he knows there were three people together in that group. Regardless of whether they think is Ymir is allied or against BR, regardless if they thought she was dead/gone and therefore are surprised to see three cups instead of two - any normal person would have assumed that three cups = Reiner, Berthold and Ymir.
And it is disappointing that Isayama didn't mention that at all, hence triggering the whole "he's completely forgotten about Ymir hasn't he" comment.
Whilst we know that's not true, and that Ymir will be making a comeback, it seems silly for him to have Erwin just completely disregard that the third cup could belong to the third person that was with BR when he last saw them
You seem to misunderstand and think that I want them to make Ymir their priority or something. No, I simply want to point that it is weird for them to assume that Ymir WOULDN'T be with them (not necessarily on their side, just at least in their company) comsodering that he seen all three of them leave together, and then found evidence of three people at their campsite
>shouldn't be shocked
He would, especially if he knew Ymir isn't an enemy to them. Which he knows.
So like I said: he either was shocked that Ymir would ally with them or they have another titan shifter to help them. You have to understand the context of this and the context is that Ymir is not on BR's side.
Another hint is that Historia didn't mention her when she asked Eren about BR.
They know Ymir isn't an enemy.
Isayama wrote it like that, because Ymir simply isn't with them. Get over it already. Also, Isayama didn't forget about her, since Eren was just thinking about her words 4 chapters ago.
Like I said, Isayama wrote it like that, because it simply means Ymir isn't with them. Judging by some moments in general, it looks like he's trying to hint to the reader she is not on BRA's side
What? Her merely being with BR doesn't mean she is on their side. Erwin and the rest of the SL might think she is being held prisoner.
But nonetheless, seeing three people leave in a group together and then later finding a campsite for three people shouldn't come as such a shock and panic for them.
I could believe surprise if they thought Ymir was dead or gone, but to immediately assume it's a brand new threat is weird
It's less autism and more wondering 'why are you completely missing my point and irrelevently talking about Ymir's alleigances instead? Perhaps if I keep simplifying this, you'll get what I mean.'
Doesn't seem to be working though, ey
Oh, there's more than one other anon here? Damn, the annoying (yet also great) thing about 4chan is the anonymity. Would be so much easier if I could tell exactly who was writing what.
Anyways, this all turned into a very long and convulated way of trying to explain why I agree with >>1886649 about the SL's reaction to the cup seeming unrealistic, and I'm over the topic.
Let's agree to disagree and just get back to posting nifty Yumikuri art hey? I'll go and try look for some new stuff
I think you're just reading too much and it's just Isayama trying to constantly tell us how Ymir is not on BR's side, and she's mostly prisoned in their village.
Maybe she'll be relevant again when Eren gets kidnapped (again) or some other serious shit happens. Isayama is known to be a retarded writer sometimes like the weak excuse of Ymir going with BR or Armin pretending to be smart and make the others look like idiots.
I wouldn't put too much thinking into it, we'll just have to wait, suffer and see.
Aw damn, I think I missed a couple threadly reposts.
Ymir doesn't have it as bad as Annie though. At least Ymir was referred to by Historia and Eren a few times and got a whole spread. Annie got mention too but she doesn't even really get to have flashbacks much either. It doesn't help that BR can't save Annie at the moment either.
Annie got flashbacks though when Eren fought Reiner for the first time.
Both do get flashbacks from time to time when they're relevant but Ymir only got flashbacks of hers with Bert and they were mostly rehashed and really short.
With BR being back I'm pretty sure Annie will return this arc. It would be really weird if they came back to also get her, just to return home and then come back for her again. I wonder how she will even return though. Will it even be because of BR? Hitch had a pretty strong reaction after hearing Annie is the FT and unlike Marlo she also stayed behind. Maybe she will do something and Annie will wake up.
>Both do get flashbacks from time to time when they're relevant but Ymir only got flashbacks of hers with Bert and they were mostly rehashed and really short.
And when Historia remembered her wish.
I'm sure the SL are all fully aware of the WT's, hopefully the MP is now adequate enough to defend the people inside the walls since all the strongest soldiers left to go to the basement.
Because snk is extremely dominated by fujos and I also think yurifags rarely tend to be drawfags. If you are lucky fujos like the idea and might draw something for it, like they do sometimes with YH or FH for example.
