Shingeki no Kyojin episode 22
Well, this pretty much confirmed my suspicions. There is definitely going to be a second season. Three episodes remain, yet we have no idea where Eren’s father is or what it is that’s in his basement, we have yet to discover the female titan’s true identity and now we’re back in the city again. Yeah… There’s definitely another season coming.
Despite the fact that I’m still getting pissed off about them still wasting precious air-time at the beginning of every episode by throwing in those brief recaps, I still think this episode could’ve used a lot of work. The pace dropped every further and we didn’t even get to see what most of us wanted to see for the three episodes.
Dammit, we want to see who’s inside that female titan! I am almost one hundred percent sure that it’s Annie, but I would still like to see it with my own eyes before I go absolutely crazy. What happened though? They weakened the female titan, rescued Eren and got the hell out of there. It was their golden chance to take care of her once and for all. What a damn shame…
Also, why is it that this episode contained so many useless recaps? We saw these scenes during the last two episodes, so why? There were so many recaps that it almost made me cry. It’s like they think that our short term memory is shot to hell. I really think that this episode just doesn’t fit in quite as nicely as the others.
I can only speak for myself, but watching an episode where Eren is lying unconscious for most of the episode is kind of disappointing when this season is nearing the end. The only thing that I really liked about this episode was the drama. It never seizes to amaze and it simply forces you to cry. Shingeki no Kyojin will definitely be remembered for that.
