Shingeki no Kyojin episode 25

Amazing…  The only thing wrong with this episode is that it’s the season finale. Having to wait for the manga to get ahead for a new season to appear is going to be pure agony, but I’m going to be patient. Shingeki no Kyojin deserves it.

We knew it was coming, we knew that we weren’t going to see much else. Still, seeing Eren lose control like that was absolutely epic. My heart was pounding so heart that the neighbours might’ve heard it, too.

This was another one of those episodes where I kind of think that they could’ve told us a bit more about how the titan transformation works. We know that the titans have regenerative capabilities. We know that Annie can regenerate pretty much any wound in her titan state if you give her enough time, yet Eren’s titan body doesn’t seem to regenerate. That still isn’t very clear and I would’ve liked to know a lot more about how all of that works.

[HorribleSubs] Shingeki no Kyojin - 25 [720p].mkv_snapshot_13.25_[2013.09.29_23.08.34]You know, something tells me that the answers to many, many of my questions are all locked away in the basement of Eren’s old home. I’m guessing that we will learn a great deal about the titans, how some people are capable of transforming and why they all have different abilities. I would really like to know more.

That last part where Eren lost control was really epic. I could’ve sworn I laid eyes on the devil. I’m pretty sure I saw fire as he got angrier and angrier. And, which also made me very happy, is that he didn’t beat her thanks to some ridiculous power boost. He had help. I liked that a lot. I can only imagine that the next season is going to involve more characters that are capable of transforming. I can’t wait to see that!

Shingeki no Kyojin episode 25 screencaps

  1. I hope you watched until the very end of the credits..

    • I did, that’s why I made that remark about watching more characters that are capable of transforming into titans. A titan hidden inside the walls themselves is a very good start. Season 2 will probably be even better. 🙂

      • The only thing I didn’t like about this episode was how they changed it pretty drastically from the manga, even though it had pretty much the same outcome. I mean, Eren going berserk was very.. Evangelion. Otherwise, I can’t freaking wait for season 2.

  2. Evangelion doesn’t even come close. Shingeki no Kyojin is way out of Evangelion’s league.

    • I read somewhere that some of the people who animated Evangelion animated the fight scenes for SnK, because they feel very similar in animation. Maybe I read some bogus stuff though, because I agree that they’re in way different leagues.
