Eren died already? Well…he was a bit of a crazed berserker with no real power…it was bound to happen eventually. He was asking for it. Interesting that they’re trying to show just how overwhelming the Eotens are…despite all the training that Eren went on about, they’re still so easily wiped out.
How’s Mikasa going to react to this? Eren’s basically all she cares about…so will she become as vengeful as he was? It’s unlikely, but I really wouldn’t be surprised if mankind’s extinction is the end goal of this show. We can’t always be winners, after all.
Training’s over and the battle begins again. Quite convenient timing…a bit suspicious, no? Anyway, a lot of talk about hypocrisy and whatnot in this episode…kinda makes sense. You’d only want the best protecting the king, but then who’s protecting the people? Predictably, most of the top ten have decided not to take advantage of their position.
Dunno what to make of Mikasa…she’s so perfect that you would expect her to die early. But she’s so featured in opening and ending…what am I supposed to think? Either way, we’ll find out next week. The battle’s on, so that must mean some character death is about to happen. The fight’s not supposed to be easy, after all.
So the training begins. Now everyone can use the cables for their mobility and whatnot. Already, we’re getting a decent sense of the characters in this show. For example, I’m sure the two characters Eren was talking to in the night are in danger of dying at some point…maybe not both, but at least one. I just get that feeling.
I could go on about the speculations regarding the drill instructor’s relation to Eren’s father, but I don’t really see that as too important yet. It looks like next week, Eren will already have graduated…I’m glad they don’t dwell too long on the training exercises. Will it be time to fight? Also, anyone else thing the song playing near the end of the episode was pretty cool?
Oh, so there are three walls. Well, this can stall out for a while, then. Certainly enough for some time skipping. So I guess we have to wait for Eren and the others to get stronger after all. I’ve been wondering…if all of humanity has been pushed to just this tiny bit of space, exactly how many of these Titans are there?
Assuming they occupy the remaining land in the world, their numbers must be astronomical. How can humanity hope to win? Either way, next week, the training begins. With so many possible cadets, surely some of them will die. Will it be from the training itself or will they actually be sent out despite the three year thing?
These people are seriously stupid if they think a wall is going to keep them safe forever. That’s all they rely on to protect themselves? I wonder if this is the point. I wonder if this show aims to make things look so hopeless at the start. The wall is their only line of defense and it has been broken. The Legion tries to discover a way to stop them, but they prove useless.
So how do they fight? I still wonder if this entire series will depict this single attack or whether the survivors here will move to another location to stage another fight or something. It could work to drag out a single attack, but I imagine it’s difficult. Probably just my own hopes…more than likely it will be stretched out. Well, this show was highly anticipated, so I’ll keep going. Music-wise, the soundtrack sounded pretty good, but I’m not a huge fan of the opening…that’s about it.
