Oh my god, I think I had one. I think I actually had a nerdgasm. I laid eyes upon something so awesome that my geeky mind couldn’t process it’s awesomeness at once, causing the mother of all nerdgasms. Isn’t Shingeki no Kyojin in your top twenty-fice yet? Shame on you!
I can only say that there was just one thing wrong with this episode; Armin survived. He ended up telling Misaka about Eren’s untimely demise and she didn’t do anything to him, even though he actually admitted that it was his fault that he died, that he was too weak to protect himself and that he needed Eren to save him in the end. She did nothing.
Yeah, that was disappointing, but I can’t blame her. She was obviously in shock and only wanted to spend her last moments killing titans. It was actually her promise to Eren that made her want to survive that dreadful situation, because she was on the verge of giving up. I don’t know much about her yet, but I don’t think that giving up suits her personality well.
It wasn’t until she was driven into a small corner, awaiting death with her broken swords and her empty tanks of gas, that a bad-ass titan suddenly appeared out of nowhere and decided to haul ass and attack other titans, thereby saving Mikasa’s life in the process. That one scene simply made my day.
Now, I’ve heard rumors about Eren returning as a titan, and I, too, must say that that particular titan looked a lot like him. Hell, it was bigger, stronger and awesome-looking version of Eren if you ask me. So yeah, I’m kind of hoping that those rumors are true, because I definitely want to see a lot more of titan-on-titan action. Just a few more days till the next episode… Patience…Read More
Finally some long-awaited action! It wasn’t much but it’s always better than nothing. I wouldn’t complain at all if the remaining episode were like this one. I have said it before and I’ll say it again; comedy is what kills this show. A bit of well-timed comedy is great, but don’t go overboard with it.
I must say that this episode was a true eye-opener. You watch a show where Mikoto, a powerful “Level 5” esper and one of the main characters, is one of the strongest characters around, only to find out that she’s easily beaten by some insane, power-hungry freak that enjoys killing Mikoto clones as much as I like scarfing down hamburgers. At what point does one start to feel uncomfortable when watching this stuff? I’m not good with these types of insane characters to begin with, so I got freaked out pretty quickly, but I refuse to believe that that character could be labelled as interesting. He’s just an insane kid with a thirst for blood and power, nothing more.
I’ve also developed a theory as to why he appeared to be stronger than Mikoto. In fact, I’ve developed several, but I think the most logical explanation would have to be that he got stronger after killing so many of her clones. It may have given him a power boost or something, which would also prove their theory about pushing one or more of them to the next level.
The second half was kind of annoying after you’ve just seen an incredible match-up, yet it remained interesting somehow. There’s so much we don’t know about those clones and their plans to level some of the other espers. What to ‘they’ want? Stronger weapons to use against other countries? There’s still so much that needs to be explained…Read More
Why is it that most of this episode seemed like a filler? It’s safe to say that watching Tsukumo in that cute outfit is the only thing worth watching this week. It seems like they are focussing on clothes and accessories rather than the story.
Honestly; I have nothing more to say about this episode. It was quite boring and dull. It’s the kind of episode that you watch when you’ve already watched everything else. I have been told that next week’s episode should be very promising, something about a new arc starting and whatnot, but what about this week? Should I be happy with what I saw? Hell no! Karneval in general is simply starting to get less and less interesting. It has almost gotten to the point where I’d rather review Valverave than this to be honest.Read More
Huh, what? Where the hell did this episode come from? I got to say that this week’s episode was really awkward and relieving at the same time. I got kind of tired of seeing the same thing anyway, but one of these episodes is enough.
The problem with this episode is that I had gotten used to seeing violence, perverted murderers and strange tools that could easily kill people. That is what I got used to, when suddenly I started watching another episode where all the characters suddenly wanted to peace, where they wanted nothing more than to befriend each other. That is really strange when I’ve seen watched six episodes with nothing but characters coming for Iwai’s life. It’s beyond that point where you simply need to get used to it, you know? It was simply awkward.
The one thing that excited me the most was when Kashiko and Kiri started to talk about how they met and whatnot. I got to be honest here; I wouldn’t mind if Kiri ended up dating Kashiko instead of Iwai. Iwai may be cuter and sweeter, but how far can one go with a girl like that? Kashiko seems a lot livelier and a little bit kinky (that’s right, I’m a pervert).
But, like with most viewers, I’m keeping my eye on the prize here. It’s far from over. It seems that Kiri is once again being set-up for some kind of Iwai-related trap, even though they made it very clear that there’s nothing to gain from killing Iwai. It’ll be interesting to see how Kiri will be tested from now on and by whom.Read More
It doesn’t matter how you look at it, it simply was an odd episode. I’m just happy right now that we have an idea of where they’re trying to go with the story, because I’ve been wondering about that for some time now.
The one thing that really bothered me was when Mikoto stood face to face with one of her clones, only to end up playing around. Anyone would’ve been startled, confused and/or upset if you came across a clone of yourself. Mikoto had the power to force that clone to answer all of her questions, yet she let it slide.
Yeah, that really bothered me. I wouldn’t have let that clone out of my sight and followed it everywhere it went. Instead she just let it go its own way while she hacked a few networks again to see what the point of those clones were, only to find out the horrible truth that, although weak, they are still being created for one single purpose.
I thought about it as well. Why would anyone want to create weak clones when the world is flooded with much stronger espers? It really opened my eyes when it turned out that those clones are being used as target practice for Level 5 espers, hoping a few of them might ascend to the next level if they just killed enough of them. That’s quite horrible and awesome at the same time, isn’t it?
Just sit down, relax and think about this one; thousands of human clones are being killed so that barely a hand full of people may get stronger. I read a few surprised posts earlier today, even though I already said that it’s always about power when it comes to organisations. That has always been the case and it always will. I’m just curious right now about Mikoto’s future decisions.Read More
