I must admit that it wasn’t a bad ending. Anime is known for having bad endings, unfortunately. They sometimes think that a show is going to be very successful, so they sometimes end shows in a way to prepare for another season or something, which doesn’t really end anything since most of the time it doesn’t happen. That is why I’m pretty satisfied with this ending.
I like how things turned out. An interesting and confusing battle between a group of people and a small army of robots. That’s always nice to see. The confusing part is that all those characters showed up for the fight, and they were characters from the same school, which would imply that most of them (if not all) have abilities of their own. It’s confusing because none of those characters used any abilities. Only the characters we already knew were using their abilities to fight those robots. Maybe that’s just my imagination, but it seems rather lazy. Was it really that hard to mix in a few powers?
It’s also nice to see that most of my predictions were spot-on. It was painfully obvious that Shizuri and her team were going to show up sooner or later during this episode. Hell, they even gave us another eyeful of them in their bikinis. Maybe it was their way of thanking us for watching their amusing show?
The only problem with this show is that there were only two Febri-chans. I wouldn’t have minded at all if there was some kind of underground basement with hundreds of them. I could’ve died peacefully due to an overdose of cuteness. All joking aside; it was a good season, although I still don’t know why they showed us that scene with Index in it. Oh well…Read More
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.
So they wrapped this season up in a neat little bow by putting Annie’s demise in the spotlight. 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.
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!Read More
Now that this season is coming to an end next week, I think that I have sufficient information to form an opinion on whether this season is better than the first or not. It is. This season contains more action, more structure, a slightly better story and less easy-going episodes.
The think that I both love and hate about this season is that the story is so damned aggravating. Never really seems to be going right. I think that introduces an element of unpredictability to an otherwise semi-predictable story. I liked how that guy prevented Mikoto and Shinobu from doing whatever they wanted by planning ahead. It’s safe to say that he won’t allow for insubordination and any other threat that might end up destroying their little project. That is why I think that he could very well be capable of killing both of them if he wanted to. He certainly has the brains for it.
It’s funny how the smart try to triumph over the strong. It’s a battle that’s been going on in real-life for many, many centuries. It gives me no pleasure in saying that brains usually conquer all else. That’s probably why jocks always pick on nerds in high school. It’s probably because they know that they’ll probably end up working for those nerds one day.
Anyway, without getting distracted any further, I think the final episode should prove to be both predictable and amusing. We finally caught a glimpse of Febri’s sister and we also know that Febri’s lollipops are running out. I can only image that Mikoto is planning some kind of sink-or-swim-operation. We’ll see.Read More
Oh god, this is horrible. The thought of having to wait up to a year or two for another Shingeki no Kyojin season is sending the wrong kind of shivers down my spine. The fact that they are dragging things out now isn’t helping either.
We know its Annie. Annie is the female titan, she can harden pretty much any part of her titan body into some kind of crystal and she can transform at least two times in a row from what we’ve seen. Also, the fact that she has so much control over it proves that she’s experienced and pretty darn intelligent for her age.
It’s safe to assume that Eren is inferior to her in almost every way. He isn’t nearly that smart, he doesn’t possess the fighting experience of knowledge that she does, he lacks a huge amount of experience, and he’s a very unstable character in general. Transforming requires a clear mind. A mind that’s filled with fear just won’t do.
The thing that annoys me most about this episode is that they are dragging things out. I don’t care about learning the same thing twice. We all realized how Armin came to the conclusion that Annie was the female titan during last week’s episode, but for them to focus on that again during this episode was kind of wasteful.
Eren has a lot of catching up to do. He managed to transform after coming close to death once again, but that just won’t be sufficient. He has a lot of allies standing right behind him and I’m sure Erwin has an ace or two up his sleeve, but for Eren to destroy an arm with just one blow is shocking if you consider that the damage done is absolutely minimal.Read More
Not much I want to say about this semi-predictable episode. I think it pretty much speaks for itself, and, in my humble opinion at least, it should go down in the books as one of the better episodes. No more messing around, just straight-up action.
I think it was nice that Mikoto decided to visit that woman. That woman, Therestina, used to be part of some kind of government funded team that ensures the safety of civilians whenever and wherever it’s necessary. Of course, that was until she went completely insane and decided to switch her otherwise dull life up a bit.
It’s safe to say that we all learned quite a bit. All of those scientists are probably people with either weak abilities or no abilities at all, which is a pain in the ass when you live in a city where people prefer people with a lot of powers over people with a huge brain. They felt left out after not getting the attention they think they deserved at the time.
Yes, yes it’s just another pathetic attempt to get people’s attention. It’s like watching a small group of children trying to get the attention of their parents, hoping to get some kind of approval. Those are the worst kind of people in the world. A child should not have to fight to gain his/her parent’s approval. That stuff comes naturally, even if you collect people’s garbage for a living (absolutely no offensive to garbage men).
The way I see it is simple; Mikoto informed her friends about the current state of things, managed to find some of the people responsible and might actually team up with Shizuri and her team later on. Mikoto has a lot of people on her side of the fence, unlike those scientist, whom only rely on their gadgets and whatnot. I’m looking forward to seeing how this will unfold.Read More
