I don't believe this story can wrap up properly this year, unless the next 6 chapters are all double length or something. There's still way too much to explore and resolve.

I feel kind of the opposite, I think they could wrap up the story in like 3 chapters, though I felt that way since Eren sent all the Titans out. It depends on how much they want to dive into each individual character's arc.

Like Eren could legit end their threat to him within a couple of pages and it would totally make sense with the powerups he just received.

That could totally happen, I just don't think it would be a good 'satisfying' way to end the series. I really, really want this story to stick the landing.

apparently this chapter has Eren+Historia flashback, finally

There's just enough ambiguity to who the father is to drive the shippers insane. Isayama had to have done this on purpose.

The shots of Eren mutilating himself are pretty metal. He will stop at nothing.

I hope whatever Eren's doing somehow ends the titan curse. No one is free with that sword hanging over the world.

Didn't he kind of do this. It seemed like Ymir doesn't have to make titan bodies anymore if she doesn't want to.
Maybe? The shifters haven't had any trouble getting their bodies in the last few chapters. But that could also be Eren pulling strings.

This chapter got me all hyped again so I put the AoT OST on shuffle.

Eren can communicate to Eldians anywhere with paths. His presence isn't needed to get the titans to do anything.

This doesn't answer why the pure titans were still at it.

^yeah I've long felt like there's paralells between Paul and Eren. Not sure if Isayama has ever mentioned being a Dune fan.

While we're on the topic Dune is a great book. If you haven't read it, maybe do so to kill some time until the next chapter

I thought Eren does see the future? 'that scenery' is the future? Small pieces keep falling into place, reinforcing the apparent inevitability of his actions, e.g. he's not surprised by Sasha's death?

Conspiratiorist posted:

Eren needs no redemption arc because the peaceful alternative of sacrificing a woman and her child and so on for generations, on the hope of maintaining a tenuous status quo enforced by a threat of global annihilation, does not hold the moral high ground.
I agree. This finale is interesting because, after trying to find alternatives Eren has arrived with no 'good' options, and he's also the only one with the strength to take action. He has to choose, even doing nothing is a choice at this point. This awful cycle was set in motion 2000 years ago; no one alive has anything to do with the cause. My hope for a 'happy' ending is the end of the curse and destruction of whatever the hell the parasite thing is.

Wait a sec am I reading it right that Eren got Historia pregnant?
it's been a fan theory, it seems a sure thing but there's still some room for doubt because of how she phrases her idea.

'how about I bear a child?' doesn't necessarily involve Eren. but then there's Eren talking about 'them' living after he dies, mikasa's love being brought up, and the mirror of grisha's relationship with a royal family member, so I'm like 99% convinced

If this is Ragnarok, I'm assuming Eren is Jormungandr

and I think the superfriends are supposed to be sailing on Naglfar

During the events of Ragnarök, Naglfar is foretold to sail to Vígríđr, ferrying the forces of chaos that will do battle with the gods.

Just like Eren, Isayama was showing us visions of the future. But we didn't understand what it meant until it arrived.

I really hope yams writes another manga after this, he's pretty good at this stuff

Eren's going to lose his leg again? That's strong evidence for the end of the titan curse.

Do the superfriends survive, considering Eren is explicitly doing this for them?

It adds some more weight to the final panel. Talking to the baby, "you are free", not "we are free" Eren will never be free. A slave to fate, and then shackled with immeasurable guilt.

Yeah I'm confused, did Eren's decision to not intervene after seeing the kid would get flattened end up with his hand getting cut off, therefore altering the timeline and proving change is possible, but he just didn't notice?

I think Eren did intervene? There's a shot of him beating the dudes up then carrying the kid back to his camp, which is where Mikasa finds him.

Some interesting observations from reddit:

https://old.reddit.com/r/ShingekiNoKyojin/comments/i5csnh/my_drawing_of_progenitor_titan_forming_muscle/

quote:

Season 1's ending 1 or 2 I don't remember which, shows Eren's titan suspended by tendons much like he is now, and him breaking free and breaking through a wall. The wall that was always in front of him, literally and figuratively, will he break through it?

as was posted a page or two ago, if this video is literally the ending

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PbV3Yr3KCyg

Eren wakes up crying on page 1 because he sees what his future self will do


...also reminder that we don't know with 100% certainty that Eren is the father. It's only very likely

I feel like they might take a side trip to Liberio and end up fighting there. Maybe stopping what's left of Marley's military from wiping out innocent Eldians in retaliation. Hopefully Annie will be okay.\

I'd be OK with this but I'm not sure if there's time left in the story for it.

Eren talks about fighting but I don't see it. I feel like he's made his choices and has gone on autopilot: destroy the world for Paradise, and he's given his friends their freedom to do what they think is best. Seems to me like he won't do anything to protect himself from them.

Chapter's awesome but the action should be a little easier to follow once animated.

Speaking of which, I'm about finished with another watch of seasons 1-3 and I love how I can spot so much more now.
