Why is this even a theory? Do people really have a hard time believing some titan just eats Eren's mom?

I'm pretty sure people are just playing up the joke from that theory one person came up with a while ago. If you can call it a theory.

From what I remember Bigfoot Titan just climbed the wall and started chucking pieces of wall at Connie and co. He didn't even go over, he just King Konged that poo poo and eventually left I think.

I really can't piece together what the hell happened after all that, Mikasa showed up, Eren got his first Titan kill as a human etc. But what happened after all the squads figured out there was no wall breach? Did the Titans just disappear along with the ape Titan? I think part of this is because I kind of marathoned a large portion of the manga and because right after the Titannie reveal there was no real slow moment to digest anything. Like how Connie's village and the Titan he heard speak just got swept under the rug. I probably have to go back and give it a quick once over.

Bigfoot probably. I mean the whole series is this really unnerving concept with giant humanoids that eat other people, but when you throw this giant lanky orangutan humanoid into the mix and don't address it in any way, that poo poo got me. Then he starts commanding the lesser Titans and making conversation with Mike. Seeing the figure in the background reminded me of that clip in Signs, actually.

I also think the Bert/Reiner reveal was sick, mostly because of how subdued it was, I think most people felt like Mikasa in that scene, just wide-eyed "wait a minute what the gently caress" reactions all around.

Is it just me or did the big reveal after the credits, seem really off? The rocks just seem to pop out with no noise. As if the titan is blowing some dust out of his face.

:psyduck:

In an episode where most everything was animated really well that last bit looked kinda poo poo. It went from a static image of cracked rock to some really lazy crumbling debris paired with hokey guitar chord, it made me chuckle a bit and I had to rewind just to see what exactly it was.

I always thought it was the huge chunk cut out from when the Armored Titan ran through the gate in the beginning. It's pretty silly that he'd cut a huge clean hole but that's all I could think of. It doesn't matter anyway, there's more outlandish poo poo at work here.

Just watched season 1 of the anime, want to get caught up on the manga, but is the incest vibe I get from Mikasa and Eren a continuing thing? Because I always find that stuff really gross

Man what the hell.

I don't think this has ever been a concern for anyone regarding this series before. This story doesn't have time for that kind of poo poo, Mikasa is just devoted to protecting Eren because he's the only family she has left. Her original family was butchered and her adoptive family eaten. I mean yeah there's people who tease her for it and Jean is jealous of Eren because of it, but there's nothing in the way of incest relationship development, or existence for that matter.

Yeah, knocking the armored titan down in the tier list would be cool.

It just doesn't make sense to me that Eren's titan could beat up Donkey Kong, not alone at least. just the size/strength difference is crazy enough, it'd need to be some large scale planned attack and lots of people would probably die in the process

edit: also we're still waiting for Bert to make his grand entrance and the wall titans to maybe do something, yeah I don't know, this poo poo is so insanely stacked against the recon corps I have no idea what they're gonna do haha

I prefer to spend my time lurking here, waiting for the actual moment of plot progression like a toad waiting for that golden fly to land. I'll probably grow old and die before it happens but there is always hope.

To add a bit of content, I find it hard to care in the slightest about an antagonist who has appeared in five chapters and has the amazing character development of, "wow he kicked the armored titan's rear end, something everyone else has proved entirely capable of multiple times."

honestly the annoying thing is that in the past 4 months or so only like 20 minutes have elapsed in the AoT world

4 months to see a continuation of no progress other than "hey guys I think it's actually hopeless this time"

"no wait guys this time it's actually hopeless"

"actually it's this time"

gently caress the basement look at everything else

the coffee cups were discovered
reiner got hosed up by spears
bert fell on everyone
Eren got kicked and monkey trouble shotgunned everyone with rocks
recruits got killed and now we're here

that took like what, 4 months to cover?

and in those 4 months of issues that was only like 12 pages of those things actually happening, everything else was the characters reflecting about their decisions before actually deciding anything

I'm wondering how exactly are they going to train Armin to use his powers. Unlike Eren, Armin's powers will probably stop anyone like Hanji from being around and directing him. I'm also guessing that he wont be as large as Bert, since Bert was around 6'0'' at least in his human form and titan forms probably reflect some of the user's natural physique.

Then why was Ymir's titan relatively small considering she was fairly tall herself

I don't think that poo poo matters too much, there's probably just random traits, Annie is short and her titan was as tall as Eren's

It's funny how all of humanity, and really all of the world we know of in the AoT universe is this walled off haven surrounded by huge forests and titans

what if inventors like Grisha just focused on steam/combustion engine modes of transportation and booked it instead of making anti-titan spiderman weapons

I'm still tight about the fact that Eren was literally about to CRACK REINER IN HALF using titan MMA and it would've been the sickest most brutal poo poo ever before Bert belly flopped and ruined it

I like those 1v1 evenly matched titan fights better than Levi turning into a Beyblade or Gorilla Grodd throwing shotgun pellets


In It For The Tank posted:

That's because they were her friends for thrre years and she couldn't secure the kill because their pained faces threw her off.

this sounds retarded by the way, Mikasa has shown, or rather it's been made a point of multiple times, that she's willing to throw her and other people's lives away for Eren, why would she hesitate for these fuckwads though? It's inconsistent I guess and that's lame.

I'm probably just remembering the times she said it re: Levi but there's probably other examples. Mikasa doesn't really get a lot of introspective focus tbh, lately it's been all Armin, Erwin, Bert and Levi

It's been over a year at this point but did she ever have a problem with Historia or Ymir? She wasn't around for that right? I need to read a recap of this poo poo
