I've always been curious how the hardening ability will look like in anime, so here it is:
Version 2, which is an awesome shot, btw:
Erwin is not a titan, inbefore xxx assumptions, so aren't Hanji and Levi:
Heichou rocks, but I liked him here the best, because he looks like he should and closest to the manga:
The animation was good, a fitting usage of stills, especially in the chase and front attacks on the summoned titans. One of the interesting things in this part is, when you look at it, humans are forced to chop titans in order to salvage another titan. Completely different scenario from Trost, where an incident turned the tides for good, while here - the best of preparations still don't bear fruit.
Marking Sasha's intuition about the FT's howl, because of the development ahead (and in Season 2, I hope).
Rewatched it subbed. I really like some of the background art in the series, it's really noticible this week with the forest. The end with the spy taking out Gunter was really well-animated, too. The back-and-forth between Armin and Eren was a nice touch they took over from the manga, too.
But next two weeks are obviously going to the the highlights.

Too bad, its very likely to end chapter 33-34 and then a second season.
Deconstruction ≠ Darker & Edgier
Trope ≠ Cliché (Face it, nothing is completely original. Can't make something from nothing so to say.).
Fanservice ≠ Ecchi (Though ecchi can please the fans!)
Popular ≠ Sucks... maybe
Seinen = K-ON! Shounen, Shoujo, Seinen and Josei are demographics.
Anime/Manga = Japanese Cartoons! Deal with it.

Is it me, or female titan's identity is pretty obvious?.Oh well, besides that, we have yet another amazing episode.
Also, it's getting harder and harder and harder to wait for another ep.It's really difficult to not start reading manga.
Sucks that Erwin's plan failed :( I always wondered if Levi hadn't said anything to the Female Titan, would she have screamed at that moment, or later? Anyways, that was a ugly sound made by the FT. And oh dear, Levi's team fell for the trap. Poor Gunther.
Killer ep gained so much respect for Armin in this one. Fan girling that we got so much Erwen action and him with levi just prooves they're the best ship lol. Almost cried with the ending, hate myself for knowing who the female titan is. Must say she is a clever bitch though.
Man I can't get over how slow this is going. The 2-3 minute recaps aren't helping either. Every past few episodes is just characters talking about shit that we can already infer by ourselves for 10~ minutes, then a short action scene, then back to talking about things that don't much add to the plot.
