After the last episode I was worried this would turn in to a more typical shounen show with a bunch of joke characters. Now my fears are abated.
I mean, crap, even potato girl is totally boss. Running straight down a giant wall in order to impale her friend’s leg with a grappling hook to prevent him from falling to his death? Hell yes. This is what I want to see.
Even the lackluster comedy from last week has picked up. The instructor is hilarious:
Those eyes look so ridiculously creepy. I am not surprised all his students seem to wet themselves around him.
Mikasa’s deadpan delivery (combined with everyone else’s abject terror) made this Sasha joke actually work.
The best part though is how the instructor plays along and attempts to hide his laughter.
Eren was pretty wimpy last episode, but he’s grown to be pretty cool too. He gets knocked off the wall, only to turn right around to fight the giant.
And of course Mikasa is even more badass. I liked how in the instructor’s monologue about the students, all he has to say is that she “is truly a genius of historically unprecedented significance.” Hahaha yeah.
