This was awesome. Taking revenge against the Titan that devoured Eren's mom...
Action is fluid along with the stellar soundtrack. Mikasa manages to free Eren and I think this episode did a decent job at capturing the emtions of the characters in particular between Mikasa and Eren.I almost thought they would kiss

Overall liked the psychology in this episode including the talk between Krista and Ymir.

I wish this season would be 2 cour but oh well. Still got most of what I had expected if not more.

Very hyped for third season next year of course!

Wow they used the same angles/visuals with that titan while it ate Hannes.
Those soundtracks gave me shivers. The moment we saw Survey Corps retreating home during sunset made me shed tears.

Also we got to see the silhouette of the guy who controls Beast Titan awaiting at the wall Maria.

P.S Announcement at the end - Season 3 in 2018 !

Season 3 confirmed! Hyped for the Uprising Arc, it's my personal favorite from the manga. I think season 3 will be 2 cours long since they teased a certain something and that's going to be exciting, since the arc after that really complements the Uprising arc and they would fit together perfectly. Ah, just thinking about it is making me super hyped.

They did a great job on this season. Great final episode.

Well well...this was great season...really great idea waiting until this finish airing to watch entire season straight from episode 1 to 12....Love the Youtube reactions of those that haven't yet read manga....they make my day when I see their reactions on revelations that happened in this season.

So...
....and Reiner's reaction on that who it is was glorious...literal oh H**l we are screwed....

Revenge on Eren Mother has been achieved. and Hannes....May you rest in peace...your sacrifice gave Eren a Time to get his spirit.

Season 3 Oooh Yeah....that is going to be glorious....No Spoiling things, but great Mindblows Ahead, that I promise.

Now...Onto Youtube to see Live reactions!!!

Yep. I'm thinking SnK S3 in Spring again and Kabaneri S2 either in Summer or Fall.

Great finale to such a great season (You better believe I'm rating this a 10 again lol) and finally the anime only's knows the significance of the word coordinate (Well I hope they do even though it was spelled out for them)

Next arc is going to be full of reveals and other cool stuff and if it's 2 cour (Which I'm hoping it is), the payoff for the next arc will please everyone since I can already tell how some people will react to it

RIP Hannes and RIP Smiling Titan....I can't even be happy or sad given what I know

It's quite simple.....Why do you think Reiner, Annie and Bertholdt were after Eren? That's literally what they were referring to every time they mentioned the word "coordinate"

Also, we've already seen an example of this ability from the Beast Titan at the start of the season too (Remember that because it all plays into the mysteries to come) so don't act like this is something that hasn't been built up

RIP Hannes, he wasn't really a major character and he didn't get a lot of screen time, but he'll be missed.

Pretty good and action-packed finale, and it's great to see season 3 was confirmed. Now hopefully all the entitled crybabies who complained about this season's episode count in relation to how long the wait was will shut the fuck up.

I posted this in the thread of the S3 announcement, but I'll post it here as well:

IMPORTANT FYI FOR ANYONE WHO DIDN’T LIKE THE SECOND SEASON BECAUSE THERE “WASN’T ENOUGH ACTION” AND “TOO MUCH TALKING”: Don’t even bother watching the next season. The arc the next season (or the first half at least, if it's 2 cour) will cover is probably the most dialogue heavy arc in the entire series, and you won’t be getting a lot of the mindless, flashy action that you crave. The focus shifts away from Titans for a while, and instead the arc focuses more on inner political turmoil. So again, if you didn’t like the second season because of the bullshit reasons above (nothing but action would be more boring, in my opinion, and we kind of need that “pointless talking” to answer our questions and you know…..develop the damn story and characters), next season would be even worse for the action junkies. Let’s face it though, the people that this post applies to are going to completely ignore this warning and watch season three anyway, and then they’ll complain week after week after week despite the fact that I, and probably many others, warned them about the nature of the upcoming arc.

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.

S3 better be 2 cour t.T From the few I read up ahead on in the past to what is being hinted on this season... It's that much and probably explosive to anime-only, they can't properly do it in 1 cour.

Damn, that scene with Barricades and Historia jumping in animation was A+.

A solid finale to the season. They rushed some post-battle scenes to end it with the 'big' reveal though.

Amazing episode and a really good finale to this season.

How the hell did Hannes block that titan's first swing with just his body? :O
Anyway, R.I.P Hannes, you fought well. :(

The Mikasa and Eren scene was brilliant and really poignant but throughout that entire scene it had this vibe that something huge was gonna happen. I had no idea what was gonna happen bit I least as hell didn't expect what happened. That was so awesome.

Anyway, based of this episode. The whole 'Coordinate' thing seems to be inclined to some kind of power to control Titans as Eren demonstrated. This also makes it seem like that instead of the Titans being an experiment gone wrong, it's more along the lines of weaponry. I'm just guessing but it seems very likely that the Titans were made to be controlled and used as a weapon. I think this makes a lot of sense as to why people who were arrested in the past were injected with the drug. To turn society's unwanted into weapons, Awfully clever of the Church. XD

That Erwin smile and final scene with ape titan. O.O

Overall, excellent followup to S1, the wait for all these years was worth it. Action was awesome, the gore was brutal and loads of new revelations and hints. I guess I can only keep theorizing until whenever they decide to reveal more information but I'm sure excited to know what the truth really is.

9/10, super glad they announced S3 for 2018.

I had kind of mixed feelings throughout the entire season (as an anime exclusive only watcher), but its definitely been worth the ride, and it finished quite strongly.

I am looking forward to season 3!

Felt a little bad about Mikasa getting stood up as Eren goes and be a hero, haha.

RIP Hannes, sometimes trying to be a hero doesn't pay off :/

I can't believe how fast these last couple of weeks went by.

This was like expected a great season and it had some awesome moments, but overall I prefered the first a bit more that's why I'm giving this one "just" an 8/10, it's a strong one, tho.

Of course I'm hyped for the third one too, the news that we will get one so soon is really a pleasant surprise. (Please God, let it be double cour.

Great end to this season. Though Hannes's death didn't affect me as much as it did in the manga (but that's probably because I'm seeing it for the second time), the handled and executed that scene perfectly. I can see why the opted for a 12 episode season, since it's better to end off with this arc that the political heavy next arc. That's not to say that the next arc is bad or anything (it's actually great), it's simply not ideal to end a season with a slower paced arc. The next season will most likely have the next arc and the one after that, so expect another 2-cour season later.

9/10

Overall didn't enjoy this season anywhere near as much as the first.

I guess after 4 years this series' wow factor died out,plus having read the manga definitely took the excitement out of this season,and well my taste has definitely become harsher in these 4 years since S1.

Overall I'd give this season a 6/10 from S1's 9/10.

Holy shit. This was a great finale.

I'm started to understand this a bit with all the 'Coordinate'. But we still need more. That Erwin smile though, Levi was pissed. Erwin looks good with that stubble. That ape titan scene and the man in glasses. I got a feeling of who he might be.

RIP Hannes. AOT killing all those great characters. My heart can't take this anymore. I know it’s all great and that but geez… Hajime Isayama needs to calm the fuck down.

S3 announced for 2018. Forget that. Can't wait that long. I'm reading the manga.

Amazing way to end this series!

The visuals with Historia and the titans was amazing. The soundtrack this episode was so good, it sent chills down my spine. Then the animation for the Coordinate, just beautiful.

I'm really looking forward to season three, especially with the focus being on inner turmoil. I will say this to anyone who complained about the dialogue this season; there's a lot more next season. There will be some action, but not a lot.

Other than that though, this was amazing to see, especially since I decided to catch up to the manga while S2 was airing.

What an amazing finale. Eren controlling the titans was mind-blowing. It sucks Hannes died trying to kill the smiling titan. That was heartbreaking. Got to see the guy than controls the Beast Titan. That's very interesting. As short as this season was compared to the first one, it was still amazing. Very hyped for third season next year!

damn that was an awesome finale. that moment when the titan ate hannes and eren started crying helplessly was very sad and impactful

i hoped that in this episode we would get to see the end of the beast titan, that guy is seriously giving me the creeps. and the guy on him in the end had similar glasses to eren's father but idk if that's important or trivial.

anyway i'm so glad that wit will give us s3 next year and i will be alive to witness it. i'm not interested solely in the action part of the series so politics could be quite intriguing (also fingers crossed there's more levi and erwin)

I really enjoyed this season although it was short. Awesome ending. Can't wait for S3 and so I will probably read the manga.

My question @mangareaders: Can I just start from the end of this season or do I need to read from Chapter 1? What would you recommend? Thanks in advance

A sublime finale! Loved the music and especially Kaji Yuki's voice-acting!

Really liked the season even though I wasn't all that looking forward to it. Goes to show the good work the studio did. Already looking forward to the next season, hopefully not years and years from now this time.

Good finale but as impressive as season 1. I liked this season 2 but...

Pros:
- good action
- lots of tragic deaths (sad for them)
- Sasha and Connie got more screentime
- Reiner and Bertolt transformation scene and their development
- Ymir's background
- the talk with Bertolt, Erwin's "sasageyo" and the whole fight (episode 11)
- the fight against Smiling titan with Hannes (with "Barricades") and everybody fighting titans
- good new ost ("Barricades", "Call of Silence", "YOUSEEBIGGIRL"...)
- animation, scenery...

Cons:
- the scene with Hange and Nick on the top of the wall (episode 1): it was better at the end of the second movie
- the lack of ost during some episode
- Ymir and Christa's talks at pratically each episode which became annoying. Too much emphasizes on Christa, making her look badass (episode 12) while she's absolutely not. I'm not saying they're not interesting characters, but their friendship is pissing me off because I liked Ymir better as a "bad girl" who only seems to care about herself and Historia's development is more interesting when Ymir is not around (I've read the manga). But together they're uninteresting.
- lack of Hange and Levi (lol)
- shi*** ending

So season 1 was 10/10
Season 2 is 9/10 maybe 8... but this is still my favorite series.

Chapter 51 is where you should start btw. The second half of the episode adapted some of that chapter, but a lot of things were skipped (like the first 16 or 17 pages, and most of Connie and Hange's conversation with Erwin, Levi, and Pixis).

@Brolex You can start at chapter 51. Like I said in the above part of this post, some of it was adapted but a lot of things were skipped.
