In order to set this up, they made it look like the scouting legion was useless and giving credence to the people saying to just plug up the walls and be done with it. If a giant appears in the inner most part of the city and then the scouting legion takes them down, it will be a wake up call to everyone to get off their asses and take the fight to the giants instead of passively waiting to defend.

The transformation is practically instantaneous so that wouldn't help, and if they keep her talking she might let something important slip.

Trying to lure her underground where she couldn't transform was a great idea though (remember the giants are solar powered). Too bad she caught on.

I don't think giants being solar powered is why they tried to lure her underground. I think it more a matter of geometry; a 20 meter giant is going to have trouble in an 8 meter tunnel.

I love the poo poo out of this manga. And she has to absolutely, positively, pay in a most serious manner for this poo poo. You don't get a pass for doing whatever duty the secret King of the city or whatever told you to do. I don't care for her reasons. She did some heinous, heinous poo poo and she has to pay.

Considering the tone of the manga I wouldn't be surprised that they would make her quadriplegic the moment they somehow restrain her.

No, that was exactly it. Remember when Eren couldn't transform when he was down in the well, away from the sunlight?

They mention how they tried it in this chapter, but the project was abandoned for some reason. Probably something to do with the higher ups, or maybe they were afraid the giants would just stomp really hard and completely gently caress their poo poo sideways.

Dude, Eren's first transformation was from the inside of a giant's stomach. Sunlight's not an issue. He couldn't transform in the well because he didn't have a 'need' that would be met by transforming. Didn't they explicitly state this?

Musashi not only wields a sword but also a pair of pistols.

Well, given about what the end of the chapter implied, she has no choice but to get her poo poo pushed in, even if she's killing a bunch of people that aren't Eren or Mikasa. Whatever she's got coming for her, she's getting.

(although, I want to say they hamstring her before anything like that happens, but look what happened last time they tried that)

Also, solar power? Where did that come from?

We don't know how fast they go inactive out of sunlight.

The idea about the tunnel was probably far more to do with just putting her in a confined space where she couldn't transform

Did Eren not know about the plan? Is that why he says what he says? Or does he just not want it to be true?

I got the feeling that he knew the plan, but desperately wanted Armin to be wrong about Annie being the female giant.

She really shot herself in the foot when she spared Armin. Eren's primary talent aside from turning into a titan is hand to hand combat. The list of people who Armin knew and were considerably better than Eren at martial arts is very, very short.

There's also the fact that this chapter made a point that "good" and "evil" is a relative term. So expect some hideously complex motivation and/or plot twist.

Well there is, this is how good the writing is, this whole thing was forshadowed back when the giants attacked the second wall. Annie inexpicably for no reason said she was sorry and someone (I think Jean) didn't understand why she said that and told her it wasn't her fault.

She spared her friends Armin, Jean and Ryner when she was on her murder rampage, looked distraught when Armin said Eren was dead, in her fight with Eren you can tell she intitally didn't want to fight with him but he gave her no choice, and when Rivaille saved Eren he looked back and noticed the female giant crying

Finally in the last chapter she was talking about how she is a rotten person for just going with the flow instead of standing for something like Eren or that good-hearted police guy

Wow. I feel kind of dense now. I praised the interesting sentiment about how it was a sign of a bad organization if it couldn't handle normal/bad people in it without realizing that it was really talking about whatever conspiracy it is that Annie belonged to, and not the Military Police at all.

I have this problem of dropping manga after a while and forgetting where I picked up and then wanting to jump right into the best parts of the story. Where would be a good place to jump into thats around the half way mark? The start of a new arc preferably ?

Nah, she was talking about both. Though I'm not sure if the goal of the human Titans is to force humanity free of the stifling walled life, or some sort of nihilistic gently caress humanity their time is done doomsday thing.

I was thinking on this, too. Personally I don't think an anime would be able to capture the art style without a huge budget.
