Annie just alerted the other feral titans to her presence so they'd come eat her, since they seemingly really hate human-titans. She never gave them a command.

Sadly mangastream translations are pretty terrible this time around. http://imgur.com/a/a42EB are the most natural sounding and the best ones out in my opinion.

Uh, what? "Mikasa, you can't! Not with those injuries!"/"Don't force yourself Mikasa! Your injuries aren't mild!" "What should I do? If Reiner's done for, then... should I help the Scouting Legion and cut out of here?!"/"How do I proceed now? If Reiner and them can't continue... should I just cooperate with the Survey Corps members and get through the current difficulties!?"

I agree that one of them's natural sounding, but it's not the one in your link.

I liked it. Hanji got to show off, we got some cool scenes that wasn't just Eren v. Annie while everyone else watches, and it felt more natural than just "Eren the world is cruel" "oh my god you are RIGHT".

I find Attack on Titan impressive, not in how it doesn't have plot armor, but how strong the illusion of there not being any is. Every new chapter feels like it could be someone's last, every other page could have a new titan peeking around the corner to eat up a character like it was a potato. And while we haven't had any 'important' deaths, it still feels very real and as though it could happen at any moment.

Yeah, reports from Japan say the 3DS game is reeeaallly not that good at all.

On the other hand, Fenglee's fangame just got an update with a new boss fight, so it's no big loss. The bosses are designed for multiplayer, but if you're good enough...

Anime reviewer JesuOtaku just put up a pretty big character analysis video regarding the main trio and their relationship. It's pretty interesting, I recommend checking it out. It's mostly just about the anime, but she does go into manga stuff towards the end.

I'm fairly certain Levi referred to Mikasa as Ackerman before. He's never been introduced as something other than "Captain Levi", and being an orphan, it's likely that neither he nor anyone else in the Survey Corps knows his name. I think it's fine, and I have enough faith in Isayama to believe he'll make it good.

I'm not sure who else does this, since I'm fairly certain that a large number of manga-readers ended up watching the anime too, but as someone who's only read the manga, I tend to imagine my own voice cast for the cast. In my mind, somehow, Levi always sounded like Dante Basco-- the guy who played Zuko in Avatar: The Last Airbender. I dunno, something about the guy always struck me as sounding kind of gravelly yet higher-pitched.

I had the same idea when I saw the bits.

Honestly, Eren needs to bide his time. Hulking out now, won't do any good in the long run. Let this anti human squad get them closer to the king. Then hulk out.

Then crush the king, then...

The first chapter is "To you, 2000 years in the future". Make of that what you will, but there's really no reason to discuss it or come up with theories because a) there's not enough evidence to support one claim over another and b) it doesn't really matter at all.

Holy poo poo, the setting's going all Wild West on us, love it.

It looks like Armin's actually pulling a gun from his coat, so I'm thinking it's he that blew her brains out, not Mikasa cutting her down. Which I'm way cool with, if only because none of the characters would expect Armin to do that.

Monkey Trouble will never be brought up again, not even by the characters. Everything else will resolve without answering what his deal was, leaving fans confused and angry for decades.

From this perspective, Eren couldn't have seen Memory Girl. She's looking in a mirror. Implying that he's remembering this from her perspective.

Seems like it, yeah. She might have been the one holding the coordinate too since she was a shifter.

Nah, it was probably someone else. I mean, it COULD have been her, I don't know how titan powers work, but if we're assuming she's never devoured someone and was simply born as she was, then her titan power is the ability to control memories.

Adding to this: It is quite possible that only Eren can access memories from those he has devoured because of Frieda's memory powers. It was never implied Ymir had memories from Marcel's perspective. Also, it would mean Eren not only has the power to command Titans, but also has the same powers of memory control Frieda used on Historia. So if we assume two different royal members had the Coordinate and Memory powers - which makes sense when you consider humanity's entire loss of memory of life before the walls, and how there are titans inside the walls - that's two known powers out of six eaten. And then there's the possibility that Grisha had a power from before. Eren's like a Titan power piņata at this point.
