Great finale.
The only word that can describe it was desperation.

Sad to see Hannes going down like Eren's mother... RIP. He fought well :(
BTW, where was Levi during all this chaos?

Lol Mikasa was denied the kiss by Eren XD
It was cool moment to see Eren controlling those titans.

Finally, the truth behind those titans is revealed to our guys. And that sparkling eyes and smile of Erwin... it was highlight of the episode for me :D

Great news about S3! Looking forward to it.

RIP Hannes, at least this time he tried to make amends for his previous cowardness and died fighting. What was that Reiner meant though? Eren has some sort of control over the rest of the titans?

Hopefully this is the last we'll see of the smiling titan, died liked it deserved, getting torn to pieces by other titans.

Looking forward to S3 in 2018!!

That scene at the end does not make sense at all. How is it that the Beast Titan just got to Wall Maria because he should actually be at Wall Sina already or one of the district walls. If I recall, we saw the Beast Titan pass Utgard Castle and if that's the case he should be at Wall Sina but in that last scene we just saw in episode 12 where the camera moves from Trost to Wall Maria, the Beast Titan is there.

I need answers and don't give me the same reason everyone is saying: "Go read the manga".

Castle Utgard is inside wall rose, the beast titan was climbing outside wall Rose to wall Maria

Overall I preferred Season 1 over Season 2. Season 1 had plenty of moments that were truly epic or shocking, Season 2 almost none for me. The deaths are also super predictable and set up before. Overall also far too short and too many unanswered questions. Season 2 has more character development though. I give Season 2 a 8/10, it's still very good but could easily be a 9 or 10 if it was faster, answered more stuff and would kill off characters without portraying the death-flags so super obvious beforehand.

why would he climb from wall rose to wall maria? the last scene indicates he was looking at trost and later said "not yet" suggesting he wants to go deeper in.

edit: what drake said makes sense, i guess i got my answer

Damn this was quite the epic ending to season two!
Overall, though most will disagree, i found this to be a large improvement over the first season for many reasons
Excited to see season 3 next year!

9/10

This series is just so damn amazing. I could spend hours talking about how good of a job it does in amalgamating the epic scenes, the mystery and in this season even the character development.
Great ending and now the wait to season 3 starts. The manga will have to wait I guess...
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

I think you got confused. When the beast titan attacked Castle Utgard he climbed the wall SOUTH of them: Wall Rose, that is, he was retreating to the outer wall (Wall Maria). As for the reasons, nothing has been confirmed in the anime, but in ep. 09 Ymir theorizes he was testing the humans' strength.

EDIT: Guess I got a little late to answer X'D

Rip Hannes, he didn't get much screentime but he used the time he got optimal

So no more cliffhangers for now with this show ending
Mikasa was really cute this

To be honest the second half of the episode disappointed me. I know all that dialogue with Erwin, hange, Levi, pexis and Connie couldn't fit in dere but they skipped bare shit like wtf. People should read chapter 51 so they know what I'm talking bout.

This finale is a mindf*ck. Very great season, and it focused quite a lot with characters and a story that is becoming intriguing. Here's for Season 3! Can't believe it!

I was worried that there was no way to wrap up all the plot threads this season in a single episode.
While I was sadly more correct then I would have liked they did a remarkable job wrapping up what they could and leaving a nice little path for season 3 to follow.

Thankfully there was enough revelations, development and action sequences to keep me engaged in this episode alone.

I would have liked some more Titan shifter tag teams, but that looks very likely next season and I guess I'll just have to be patient.

I'm so Glad that ugly titan is dead now that was the best way to make her die love it but it cost Hannes life ;-;
Eren powers are amazing I don't know how if that Blonde guy has the same power that would be a big problem, this season had one problem and that was Levi's appearance was like 3-4 minutes wtf are you kidding me, and S3 is confirmed for 2018 I'm so hyped. 9/10

RIP Hannes you'll be missed.. The death of the titan who killed Eren's mother was satisfying but it would've been even better if Eren killed it.

Please, let someone kill Eren and Mikasa. I thought I had already seen all possible disgusting things in anime, but I was wrong. How can anyone actually create something THAT bad? Their conversation was so pathetic I felt like crying. I mean, the two of them have always been terrible characters, but with this one scene they climbed to the heights of embarrassment unseen before. I wonder how much deeper the author can still fall.

I totally loved Ymir and Christa/Historia. I loved how Erwin, despite being ready to sacrifice himself, was left alive and forced to see his subordinates die one by one. I loved Armin (as always). I'll be waiting for the next season, and maybe, in the meantime) I'll even manage to forget about how annoying those two main characters are. Well, so much for wishful thinking.

Damn, from episode 1 to episode 12, this was one of the best anime adaptations I've ever seen.

Even though I read the manga I started crying as soon as Eren fell on his knees. And during the flashback too.

Glad we got to hear some lines from my favourite voice actors (Koyasu only said one line but it was so awesome ^^).

Hyped for season 3 of course!

As for the last episode - an easy 5/5.

My favourite bit of the manga finally got adapted. Eren's promise to Mikasa, followed by THE SCREAM, then followed by Reiner and Berthold pissing their pants when they realise that the last person they would want having the coordinate power has it. Well done!

Better adaption that for the first season (music not as good though). the budget showed. Look forward to S3 in a years time.

The whole Historia/YUUUMIRUUU relationship is so cringey I wanted to skip every scenes featuring both of these in the whole season. I get it that it's a shounen trope but it's just unbearable the way the author develops these two characters.
No emotion, no true links, no backstory between them, it's just a "I'll protect you ! you'll see !" "Please I want you to be with me, but well I'm going to back to Reiner now, please don't die, ahh i'll protect you forever, I love you but I don't want to say it because we're in a shonen anime."

And then, we get to that Mikasa/Eren moment... Again, the author is really awkward when writing his characters. What he is doing ? What is he thinking ? It's just plain bad fanfic at times.

It's unfortunate because really the setting is real nice for change : Mankind's survival against colossal foes.
I don't want to come of as a hater but I really don't understand the direction of where he wants to go, and the motives behind every character : I don't buy any of it. Very poorly written. Non-sensical and/or confusing.
It's quicky becoming a manga/anime about Eren's powers, ohhh-so-mysterious religious cult with deep "secrets" and not about survival, not about psychological tension, not anymore.

Goddammit Hannes, R.I.P.

Even if this season was short compared to the first... to me it was a good one. Granted we didn’t have the same action that we got in the first but when the moment for action arrived it was done well... but the thing that I liked about this season was that they explained who the Armored & Colossal Titan are, what was the deal with Ymir & Krista. We also got Sasha & Armin character development. And humanity got some clues about the cause of the attack that were the main focus in this season & last. Although it might come at the price of some of the characters sanity going the semi mind-break route like Levi but especially Erwin...

On a side note:
Who was that blonde man at the end the one in the back of Sasquatch Titan...?

overall 7/10, pretty disappointment for me.

pros
- Erwin
- Ymir
- mistery about titan

cons
- all veteran look weak af, many of them dead but none from the new recruits.
- new recruits had more contribution than veteran whom only depend on erwin
- armored titan weak. I never expect him to be as good as annie but with that muscle I expect him to crush eren titan
- eren commanded titan?
- character? the worst part. Couldn't careless about everyone. no sad death for me. I mean, I barely know them and the main chara just feel bland.
- military police just there to be eaten, but surprisingly hannes perform well
- art, they should tone it down like season 1.
- CG

Well, gonna watch season 3. My friends keep saying that I'll definitely love it. No action pack but heavy conversation which always my favorite.
