Hold up. Did half the characters just die. Killed indiscriminately, is this why they compared AoT to GoT. This shouldn't have happened. Not in this way. I wanted something a little more hard-hitting

Im pretty sure they arent all dead, but how could Armin know? He has to work with what he got.

These episodes always feel way too short. Its like a movie cut in 10 pieces so far. Definitely going to enjoy it when I rewatch the series.

Was there this kind of explosion when Berthold transformed in season 1 as well? Maybe it was from the fall, who knows.

Finally we got a nice shot of Mikasa again. It feels like she had barly any screentime since season 1

They ganged up on poor Marco!

That's a tight situation in there. I wonder what they will do.

The art is not that good anymore. It doesn't resemble the past seasons as much, and also does a worse job telling the story.

The colossal titan looks quite awful. I am okay with 3d backgrounds, but I really don't like 3d characters in a 2d anime. Plus, the model that they used looks horrible, the texture has an uncomfortable amount of details and the rigging looks lazy. I know WIT studio can do better, so I wish they would.

The flashback was done quite well. Looked like Marco's actor had a slightly difficult time to get back into character after so many years. However, Annie's actress did a fantastic job. It felt as if she'd never left.

Hope the fights end by episode 5 or 6. I really want to see the inside of the basement. Because of how faithful this adaptation is, I think they will do a good job with the revelation.


I think the art was shifted to follow the style of Isayama, and this change was done from the beginning of season 3. Also, I was expecting the colossal to be in CGI since it takes so much money and time to animate slow moving subjects. But who knows. Felt like I could share some of my opinions. Please don't kill me T-T

The whole issue about whether the the colossal titan looks bad due to being rendered in CG makes little sense to me. I am sure we we can all muster up examples of CG being far worse and far better elsewhere in this medium. At worst it is average and it hardly brakes the overall immersion.

More importantly, what I like to hope for, is that the more animators utilize CG in anime now the better equipped future animators will be to make CG look more compelling in the future and at a fraction of the cost. Some of our most anticipated adaptions may take a few hits but ultimately this experimenting will lead to better quality down the line.

Anyways, I really feel like I need to rewatch Attack on Titan because I am starting to forget all the things that have gone down in this story. The episode was great despite that but these first three episodes feel like they would have been stronger overall could I remember more of the first two seasons.

Yeah it makes little sense to argue if this is bad or not, it's just one of the biggest main focuses of the series atm. that's not that important.

Someone bashed your brain in with a hammer mutliple times?

Yeah I can list examples of CG worse and better then this, THAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT THIS IS EVEN REMOTELY GOOD BECAUSE OF THAT STUPID STATEMENT.

People are already skilled with CG in Animation, but most people who have more then 3 Braincells know that makinga 3DCG Titan Model the main focus of a series and then messing that up so badly is a BAD THING.

How can people seriously think that this is ok?

There was 0 thought put into this Titan Model, they did not even bother to animate it even remotely well.

The overall quality of the series went up over time, but the actual effort into the things that need more time was completely lost in that.

Shingeki no Kyojin turned from a genuinely great series into a quick cash grab that has no effort put into it at all. (Or well a lot less effort then the first Season)

Owwww, that was sad to see that Marco's death was not only related to a Titan but it happened because of Reiner, Bertolt & Annie... guess I won't regret them if they die this season (except for Annie, I can't hate her).

People might as well accept that the fabulous good ole days of beautiful hand drawn 2D only TV series are well and truly gone. Only films or shorts can justify doing full 2D action scenes.

ON another note, this episode reminded me of why I disliked Berthold and Reiner so much. Poor Marco. And Berthold's ridiculous answer to Armin's plea accentuates that dislike. Don't @ me on this.

I can get why you'd dislike them both but do you at least see where they're coming from? It was hinted at a few times in this ep alone that Bert looks up to Reiner's "warrior" facade as something he should follow. His answer to Armin was defiant not because he genuinely believes in killing them all, it's because he's resigned himself to following out Zeke's plan until the end. That's why we get that little moment of introspection before he transforms where he reassures himself that none of this is anyone's fault, using the cruelty of the world as a coping mechanism to justify having to kill the people he undeniably considered friends (thus why he was also scarred by having to kill Marco).

I just think it's always interesting to look at the characters with a bit of nuance, especially in this show, since Reiner and Bert are what could basically be considered child soldiers within the setting.

Good episode, epic music scene and hype, wow the arrival of the colossal Titan was very stressful especially when the explosion happened and the whole house was on fire, 3D CGI was very good, in my opinion this is like Titan Rodd Reiss, do not understand why people question CGI, in my opinion it is not disappointment , even OPM S2 also has a lot of CGI in every scene

The CGI was so beautiful, i really loved it, looked absolutely perfect
i wish they used more CGI overall, they usually blend it perfectly especially with the 3D Movement, the Colossal Titan looks amazing, i love it so much.

Can't wait for next episode.

Bro, upgraded version of APETITAN and YouSeeBIGGIRL/T:T are fucking lit. I legit can't wait anymore for the soundtrack to release. CGI Colossal Titan was bad, but this time it was expected. But for real, did the Colossal titan always have this bomb transformation? When he appeared on the end of episode 4 of the 1st season, it looked just like any other titan transformation. Even on the last time he appeared, it wasn't this "bombastic". Also, Hange won't die just like that right?

I think Reiner is schizophrenic, his personality changed when Marco was truly eaten.

It kinda annoyed me when Armin wanted to negotiate with Bertholdt, it didn't matter what reason they did what they did. The fact is that they killed so many innocent people and became terrorists to humanity. As they say, "We don't negotiate with terrorists no matter what" and that should've applied in that situation as well.

there is also no possibility of him dying with the others, the explosion was large enough to flatten the surrounding buildings, if hanji was still alive would he be seen by mikasa and the others

I agree that most people who complain about the CGI are just annoying manga readers who feel disappointed and dissatisfied with the quality of anime that is not the same as the manga, I think episode 3 has the best and epic parts of music, especially in Titan colosal transformation

There's no right or wrong side, coz this world is just too cruel.Bertholdt really defined his purpose of living.

Gosh, Mikasa is always so close to killing them. It surprised me that Berthold was able to put up a (short) fight with her.

Did Hange really die that way? Strange.

The episode was quite amazing.
Regarding that CGI, it has been an issue since season 2 and since SnK has been adapted only by Wit Studios it is understandable. It´s way more simple to have production values when a titan like Production IG is behind you.

I am really liking this season, it will probably end up being my favorite.

With this episode I can confirm a fact:

Evidence
1) Levi and Mikasa are Ackerman family's members.
2) Reiner survived both Mikasa and Levi's attacks.
3) Bertolt survived Mikasa's attack twice!

From 1), 2) and 3) We have a fact: The Ackermans can't kill Reiner nor Bertolt.

They weren't chasing after Bert. They were going to finish off reiner as they thought bet wouldn't transform near reiner as that wudda killed reiner as well.

Yeah the new opening definitely evolved in my concept and I realized I blasphemed by saying that the first part one was better, Linked Horizon rocks!


I really enjoyed the episode except the CGI Colossal titan that I can not get used to and the fact that they left Reiner's body inside the titan and started celebrating, but they could have taken it out of there or simply continued to shoot the explosive spears in him.


And once again the soundtrack was incredible!

colossal Titan was only 2d in the first season as it didn't have to do Much all it did was appear . Kick a wall . Disappear and move an arm .

It's needs to move more in S2 and now . They don't have the time to hand draw everything Especially that scale

This episode adapted chapter 77,78 and the beginning of 79, if I remember correctly this episode actually adapted the most chapters in any snk episode overall.

This season on a whole is adapting two chapters per episode which wasn't the case for the previous seasons which adapted like 1.5 chapters on average with fillers included, this is the fastest pace snk season, which is why it only has 10 episodes.

This episode simple feels slow because it so happen that the two chapters it adapted were mostly buildup, they are not dragging it out at all. The only other option is to cut out some of the scenes, but why would anyone want that?

You guys are such strict critics lmao. The colossal titan looked fine along with that amazing remix of the Bertholdt/Reiner transformation theme from season 2.

My only problem right now is the whole "transfer consciousness" thing that Reiner does. It just seems like such an a**pull and forced, like the very definition of plot armor. Maybe they'll explain it later.

And once again, another intense and briliant episode! And it is impossible to predict what will happen next!

Marco's dead flashback, brought me memories, was really sad the way he died, he heard the wrong conversation, unlucky, i wonder why they cryied when he was being eaten, they caused it!

Armin's attempt to negotiate failed, but i am glad he tried, and we still dont understand why they are doing that!

Mikasa vs Berthold was so cool, Mikasa is always impressing us showing that awesome moves!

Armin in command, without Hange's group, i am curious to how they will handle the fight against Berthold!

Btw is she is really dead, R.I.P Hange! T.T

Bertolt was remembering when they murdered Marco because he heard them talking about the titans. Reiner is defeated and the beast titan threw a barrel with Bertolt inside, he told Reiner to lay on his back and transformed into the colossal titan. Armin realized that they must defeat him there and not near Erwin.

The episode was awsome, despite the fact that I never liked how the colossal titan looks in cgi, I would appreciate if he appeared in 2d. Now, he got to watch when Reiner, Bertolt and Annie murdered Marco by taking out his equipment, how guilty they felt and how they feel now, not out of guilt but kind of understand their mission, due to Zeke's words.

Really good episode, the good shit's only starting. Can't wait for the next episode, I still don't believe how I managed to survive 1month between each chapter back the arc came out in the manga.

I think by this point people should've gotten used to CGI colossal titan. There is no way that Wit Studio will be able to recreate it in 2D animation like they did in season 1. But that was when they had a lot more help from other studios. The animation is looking really good, even for a studio that's supposedly going through production hell.
