And… what in the world?!!! We actually get a good episode of Titan this week? I never expected this. Maybe it has to do with the fact that they stopped explaining the long range scouting formation over and over again and actually made stuff happened.
Finally all that crap about trusting your teammates pays off, when Eren trusts them and they all immediately proceed to die. Still not worth all the heavy-handed emphasis they put on this theme… And his team would have died either way so no big deal, but I assume Eren won’t see it that way.
I am disappointed that Petra and the old guy died. The old guy was probably my favorite character at the moment, and Petra was really cute. Oh well. Levi’s reaction to seeing their corpses was nice.
And Mikasa is finally back in action! With some rather dirty lines. I wonder if her absence was part of what made the past arc suck so much. It didn’t help, but the bigger issue was probably that each episode consisted of alternating through each of the characters staring at each other and looking confused, combined with some lectures on trusting your comrades. Seriously, what were the creators thinking with the past arc? If this is what the manga was like, they should have just ditched it for a bit.
By the way, does anyone else think that the female Titan looks like Annie from their training group? (If you’ve read the manga, no spoilers please.)
