Man so I know we're a few eps in now, but that S2 ED is absolutely haunting as a manga reader. The whole being forced to eat your countrymen forever was a pretty satisfyingly hosed up explanation for the mindless titans.

Wait, why not? Are the Ackermans not Eldian?

And the ~Asians~ aren't Marley or Eldian, got it.
So then do we know why some family that isn't Eldian wound up on the island? Or ?

Hmmm, drat. I'm still hoping this is some kind of far future Earth, but I guess the weird backwards upside down Africa world map makes that unlikely.
Unless they're living inside hollow Earth with the power of titans.

Just read the latest last night and I am pumped as hell. Love how Eren basically says he understands Reiner's reasons for the attack, he knows he was just a kid being manipulated, he's not a bad guy etc., but even so he's got to get Marley back. poo poo's chilling and as gently caress.

I'm gonna say it: I'm glad Eren killed a bunch of people, and I hope he kills a lot more.

Hell, same.

VVV close enough

Eren will use his wish to become a law of nature that destroys all Titans, past, present, and future.

Also I figured it was something like, the Founding Titan let's you get to the paths coordinate place, but you can only command Ymir there if you have royal blood. Usually someone has both, but the will of the first king had been preventing the Reiss line from commanding Ymir. Zeke isn't bound by the will of the Reisses, but couldn't get in w/o the Founding Titan. Eren can get in if he touches royal blood but can't do anything once there.

I like that Ymir finally got a hug after 2000 years.

I still hope to god that we get some explanation that the spinal cord monster is the product of future human science fuckery and that this is actual Earth. Seems unlikely with that world map though.

The title page of the chapter says "underneath this world of suffering is another world light cannot reach," so is it a metaphor for the past or the paths dimension or... literally some underground ecosystem that gives rise to titan spinal cord parasites?

Nah the map is mirrored not just rotated, so it doesn't work. Unless it's

I figure they all just move radially outwards from their starting positions at the wall, so the flattening paths are like spokes of a wheel. If you're in one of the pie slices between titans, you're safe!

Once they loop back around the planet, they just join hands and reharden and Attack on Titan 2 begins.

Whatever happened with the story of the miner?
Was there wall material under the entire walled territory? We didn't see titans erupting out of the ground when the rumbling happened.
Is the entire island titans? It's plugging up the entrance to the hollow Earth. Everyone is trapped on the inside which is why the continents are mirrored. The whole Earth is the real walls.
I've been waiting on this Chekov's gun since S1. Isayama doesn't seem like the type to set something up and then just forget...

I can hardly equate the Eldians to the typical fictional "minority with superpowers", because their one superpower is the ability to be permanently turned into mindless man-eating monsters through the use of chemicals exclusively available to the loving military.

It's easy to miss but the Eldians have also been shown to be able to transform into titans at will and maintain conscious control.
