Oh man, been waiting this episode to be adapted for many years.

There's a lot of building up towards the revelation in the first half including analysis of previous events (Female titan). Armin's theory is just a theroy but does make sense if you put the pieces together back then.

THE REVELATION at last! Perfect music used at the end too imo.

The last few minutes I was on the edge of my seat, the tension was high and overall epic scene. Only downside was the CGI Colossal titan.

I'm so glad they nailed the adaptation of this chapter.

Only downside being the CGI colossal titan. Doesn't look good in this episode and the preview.

But everything else was perfect!

They'll be using a mix of both CGI and traditional 2D animation for different scenes.

I didn't like the CG Colossal Titan but it wasn't a big deal.

The revelation was great. The scene was well addapted and faithfull.
Dude I knew what was going to happen because of the manga but it was sooo exciting to see it animated!
My heart is still pounding fast!

It's one reveal after another one, albeit this week it's much more juicy. Finally we discover who were/are the armored and colossal titans. It's too bad to lose Reiner tho, he was one of my favorites in the corps :'(

That transformation at the end was epic, now Eren's pissed

The years of waiting were absolutely worth it, but it would be nice if I could've reset my memory before watching this episode. Knowing about the big revelation took a little bit of the tension, it was still a great watch, though.

5/5 epicness overload
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

I totally agree!! This is the best episode from season 2 so far!! It was perfectly handled. I loved how they show the revelation about Reiner and Bertolt, and the epic music at the end!!!
Can't wait for the next episode!!!

Definitely impressed by the revelation at the end especially the transformation of Reiner and Bertholt! Along with the matching OST, it was perfect.

"YOU DAMN TRAITOOOOOORRRSSSS!!!!"

Oh the emotions built up in Eren when they were betrayed by two of his comrades whom he trusted for so long. Just dahm.

Are you fucking kidding me? Reiner simply tells Eren they're titans? That's the fucking revelation? And then we get a shitty flashback to 12 hours earlier so that we can see they had already known their identities? And that fucking CGI garbage colossal titan? Fuck off.

Hmm, are they really slowing down to one chapter per episode just to do this arc in one season?

that's a great twist. Given their predicament, there's no reason for him to keep trying to hide his identity.

He's been the armoured titan for 7 years, it's not a big deal for him

Best episode so far. Reiner nonchalantly reveals himself to Eren much to Berthold's shock while all other Scout members carry on talking as though they don't notice. You could hear to crack in Eren's voice as he tried to play the reveal off. Props to Yuki Kaji.

They already suspected them since season 1, hence why they already move them to a different location from where eren and Annie where doing battle, not only that they got rid of all the 104th gear. Rewatch season 2 episode 1, and you will get it, even Reiner was suspecious of that.

They showed that flashback for the viewers like you, that may have missed that they were already suspecious of Reiner and bertholdt.

Lets just say Reiner mental state isn't normal right now, you may need to rewatch all of season 2 and pay attention to Reiner, now knowing he is the armored titan and you will realise some of his actions are odd for someone that is a traitor.

Yea, the cgi collosal titan sucks I agree there.

Oh... My... God...

My Reiner "protect all chibi ones" Braun is titan?!
I literally crying right now...
It hurts!
He was this titan who crushed wall in first place?
He is such big bro.

That collosal titan...
Really, I haven't even pay attention on him...
and... and...

When they revealed that they are titan,
it happen so fast... so out nowhere...
I was like "Wait? What?!" and I go back and play this part again...
and... I can't!

This was such cool episode,
that last scene...

That Eren... whole animation and everything was so cool!

Really amazing episode!
But my heart is broken because of Reiner.
He can't be bad guy, he is protector of chibi ones.

Sorry, but isn't it a bit too fucking convenient that Armin remembers the Female Titan looked at her hand? They've been doing the mid-episode flashback thing a bit too often. I really appreciated them in the first episode, though, but now they're being overused.

Eren was literally blatantly told that Reiner and Bertolt were titans, and he was also told by Armin and Hanji the same thing, and he still didn't want to believe what he was hearing? Please.

That escalated quickly. Great episode. XD

Few episodes ago, I said this
Lelouch0202 said:

I'm pretty surprised at how strong Reiner is. The titan actually bit him and yet his arm was able to withstand it leaving only bite marks, in fact he didn't even lose flesh and that's really surprising given that almost every one else who was bitten has lost limbs and head and what not. Was the titan weak or is Reiner just super strong? xD

I was told that he was just super strong and now this. What the hell? XD Damn you people. :P

I love how Reiner just nonchalantly spoke about him being the armored titan and Bertholdt being the colossal titan. xD
Soundtrack and stuff was on point for the transformation, the CGI for the colossal titan is not all that bad but it would've been better in 2D.

Looking forward to the next episode.

Finally the big reveal has come. I feel like a lot of people may have encountered spoilers, but this must have been a pleasant (or probably unpleasant) surprise for anyone who managed to avoid spoilers for so long.

That OST during the transformation sequence was fucking amazing, next episode should be epic. I'm a bit disappointed that they used CGI on the Colossal Titan, I wouldn't mind if it looked good, which is what I thought would be the case seeing how well-animated this show is in general, but it really didn't look that good.

I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.

So now Eren have to pick a choice about continuing his mission with Mikasa and Armin or going "another" way along with Reiner and Bertholdt, I guess?
And that BGM, reminds me of Shantien when it arrives at the flying boat to start the mission. >_<
