This episode opens with a dream from Annie’s childhood (in case you hadn’t figured out who the female Titan was). She’s training with a man, presumably her father. But she wakes up in bed inside the walls. So here’s my question. How is she moving around so quickly? How is she not missed inside the city walls? How, how, how?
We get to see more of the corruption inside the Military Police. The soldiers drink and gamble while working, sell weapons on the black market and totally abuse their power. The rookies, which Annie is a part of, see all of it first hand. And one, Marlow (who is basically anime!human!Spock) is disgusted with the display.
We went to Disneyland this past weekend and I finally remembered to take the boys with me. I think this may be one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken.
What’s your favorite thing to ride at a theme park?
Yeah, this episode sure was a crushing blow. I don’t know how many more people I can see get killed off. This show is the worst because just as soon as you start getting attached to someone they inevitably die. But more on that later.
For the female Titan to have come prepared wearing maneuver gear means something important. She’s not like Eren when she transforms. She’s able to come out of the titan still capable of fighting. That’s something Eren can’t do (yet?) and so we see another unfair advantage this girl has over him.
Mikasa and Levi are in pursuit of the female Titan, and Eren too. When she slows down enough, clearly running out of energy, they move in for the attack. Levi plans to incapacitate her while Mikasa gets Eren out. We get to see bad-a Levi do his thing, moving so fast he’s just a blur of swords.
Oh, so an episode that focuses on this stony faced, srsbsns babe?
Totally here for anime!Steve Rogers Erwin Smith.
Okay, but seriously. The female Titan is trapped but she’s protecting her vulnerable spot. Not only is she blocking the back of her neck with her hands, but she can somehow turn her skin into some crystal/diamond substance that is impossible to cut through. How come she has so many great abilities when all Titan!Eren can do is use his rage to kill? I feel like Female Titan has some major advantages over our poor protagonist.
