It's good that the art is bad because there were an excess amount of mutilated bodies (of people STILL LIVING) in this chapter. :stare:

I did get a good laugh out of Armin's perfect 8-pack.

Thats what your abdominals look like under all that fat and skin

Eren is going to consume all the titans then encase himself in crystal forever. Thus solving that whole pesky titan situation without having to genocide anybody

I just realized that Eren infiltrating Marley, killing their ruling family and stealing their titan mirrors Grisha dong the same on Paradis with the Reiss family

Anybody know what the tumblr and kpop teens who accused aot of being fascist propaganda are saying about this season? are they still running with Isayama being a cryptofash?

I know we're working on manga logic here, but if Eren/Ymir win and crush every plant and land based creature in the world, there wont be much of a future for eren jr

The bulk of the planet's oxygen is produced in the ocean, and even if all photosynthesis stopped tomorrow, oxygen depletion wouldn't be an issue for a few thousand years (even more so with the bulk of terrestrial life similarly extinguished).

Furthermore, while atmospheric carbon dioxide would certainly spike in the short term, a lack of continuous excess production combined with an immediate reabsorption as fast-growing plants colonize cleared areas means this spike would only last a few decades.

Wouldnt erosion and desertification take in effect in the newly clear cut areas?

I was looking up how tall Yelena was after seeing people online speculate that the soldier in disguise is Armin and yo I had no idea yelena was this freaking massive

If I was caught in an endless cycle of ethnic violence I simply would not genocide the entire world

the climax of the story has been former enemies setting aside their differences and working together towards the common goal of stopping eren. Im guessing eren partially succeeds but the warriors end up saving their families

still not jingoist or necessarily pro war

Alos the entire military command of both sides are dead and the last 2 members bonded over their common humanity before dying. I just dont see how you can interpret this as being pro war

Starship Troopers manages to do what it does because it puts it's whole leg behind the kick of the Bad Ending - if Eren is actually defeated by Armin deciding to talk about how he likes being alive, then the story is, perhaps inadvertently, making the case that the consequences of ever-escalating fascism are avoidable as long as like believe in ourselves or whatever.

I think it just kind of undercuts the whole "here's the endgame of fascism" thing to be like "unless you have a deus ex machina that you unlock by talking about how much you loved your dad."

Im trying to understand your argument. First you said the story is jingoistic because characters with military training are the heroes and now youre saying that the anti war message is weak because the conflict is being resolved with dialogue? What are you trying to say?

Eustace
Feb 26, 2009


Historically, fascism usually gets defeated by groups of people with really big guns. I get what youre saying though, but as others in this thread have said, the series isnt against violence for the sake of protecting yourself or others. Also whats "defeating" eren is a group of former enemies in an ethnic conflict putting their differences aside, embracing their common humanity and putting a stop to genocide.

I bet the ending is going to be vague about the consequences of the rumbling. Like "wow that was scary but whatever comes after we're going to be ok as long as we have each other" and then bam the end

I kept hoping it was all a fakeout or that Eren was playing 3D chess to trick the jaegerists. It didnt hit me that he might be the baddie until Grisha started begging Zeke to stop him.

Levi and Kenny never really had any conflict with the people they bonded to so it makes sense that they never got headaches
