Shingeki no Kyojin episode 15

I’m not sure what I should say about this episode… It’s like the pace is suddenly going in slow-motion. I dare say that it was almost more comedy than the usual hard-core drama, which is something I would never want to see in Shingeki no Kyojin. Comedy has no place here.

It’s nice that Eren is finally part of the recon corps, even though they’re still keeping an eye on him and treating him like a prisoner, but did we really have to spend half the episode watching them clean their new hideout? I don’t know… I feel as though this episode is out of place.

Let us face facts; Eren will be sleeping in the basement (again). I wouldn’t be surprised if there were people there to watch him twenty-four hours a day. Nor would I be surprised if they chained him to a wall again like last time. Eren’s condition is unlikely to improve any time soon for as long as he has that mysterious power.

I can’t tell if she’s just excited or just bat-crap crazy, but she is definitely a threat if you make her your enemy. You don’t want to have to fight someone that wants to cut you open and examine your insides after doing all sorts of things that make you beg for death.

Anyway, things will be slowing down I think. It’s nice to see Eren and the rest fighting titans, but now they have stumbled upon a new enemy that disrupted their research by killing Hange’s lab rats. The one character that interest me most right now is Erwin, the guy in charge of the recon corps. He seems to have doubts about humanity and the current chain of command. He should prove to be quite the interesting character in the (near) future.
