Attack on Titan Episode 29: Another one appears

Click here to check this post out on my personal website.

Nice buildup in this week’s episode. I guess this is where it begins. I kind of regret having read the manga at this point, because it’s harder to react normally. For example, this episode is a pretty big one for Reiner where he ends up doing a lot, physically and mentally, for the show. But given how he ends up, I’m not as enthused. I guess it still doesn’t change the fact that he really gets to show off here. Anyway, the big reveal for the episode is Ymir, that she’s another Titan that’s been hiding in the group all this time like Annie. I get that she started getting some focus in the second season and she really tipped her hand in this episode, but it still felt overall random. I’m curious how people who are seeing this for the first time reacted. How did people feel?

This is apparently important. I wonder if the writing on that bottle he couldn’t read is what I think it is.

Ahh…still got that hope, huh?

You’re not suspicious at all, Ymir. Little bit much, don’t you think?

Aww man, I was going to ask that. Anyway, busted.

Surprise!

I know there are grooves in the staircase and all, but I still find it hard to believe the cannon stays on course like this.

Haha wasn’t expecting that in a show like this.

It’s always so weird to orient myself into the world of this series. Something like throwing rocks seems so simple, but it’s a deadly force in the hands of a Titan. And more importantly, it’s something these people have never seen a Titan do, which makes it much more impactful. I feel like I have to constantly remind myself.

Darn it, Christa. This is your fault!

Yeah, she’s being kinda whiny. I’m with you, Ymir.

Did the Titan transformations always show this much? Not that I mind it.

  1. Having not read the manga, if Ymir had been revealed as a Titan a couple of episodes a go, it would have seemed totally random and I would have been wondering who she actually was because I’d all but forgotten her. Since this season has been building up all these support characters and given the earlier parts of this episode, by the time it was revealed I was kind of waiting for it. So, I actually didn’t mind this reveal at this time. I’m actually finding myself really enjoying season 2 of this at the moment which, given I liked season 1 but other than the opening episode I wouldn’t call it amazing, I’m finding kind of surprising.
    And I’m totally going to pretend Reiner is going to live happily ever after because I kind of liked him this episode and I’d rather not think about what horrible things the story has in store for him.

    1. yeah, i agree that they were definitely propping ymir up for this. i guess it was incorrect for me to bring this up now, but this is only really the beginning. i think the true test will come as the story progresses because im not sure im too on-board with it.

      actually, funny story about reiner…he’s *something something something*
