The Colossal Titan was as I expected, and it was bad. But the rest of the episode was great. Plus, the CGI Colossal Titan doesn't bother me much.

Though, the preview... they literally spoiled everything in it.

Well then it's a very good thing that you aren't an animator.

Yup, no need to put your absolute best in your work simply because it's hard. The Colossal Titan doesn't even move so much and they did it extremely fucking well in the first season, so I don't get the point in switching to CGI.

I've doomposted myself enough to get ready to face the CGI Colossal but I'm relieved to hear it sounds like it won't actually be that bad.
Keep in mind that while the CGI Colossal was derpy in a few scenes in season 2, it led to us getting THIS https://www.sakugabooru.com/post/show/38382 which I'd wager wouldn't have been possible without the usage of the CG model. Hopefully we'll get an equivalent of spectacle this season.


that looks amazing honestly

Marco will be missed...even now, I still remember him despite not being as prominent as the main characters.

I don't mind the CG, kinda got used to it from the previous seasons. The storytelling was important for sure this episode.

Watched it around 20 hours ago but holy shit this was probably my favourite episode in the entire show so far. This was definitely Bertholt's episode, and no one elses. The transformation was the best so far, and the build up with Bertholt was incredible. When Mikasa got kicked I was surprised as heck!

Let me make something clear. When you have something small and moving fast, its easy to animate. When you have something big and slow, you need alot more frames to animate it. Common sense right?

The colossal Titan is a fucking gigantic slug. Drawing that over and over and then shading it is near impossible even for a large and talented staff. Now then, why not lessen the frames? If you reduce the amount of keyframes, you get a fucking blob and the whole model melts like glue.

Now ask why switch to fucking CGI?

Guys guys chill its just cg its not like its gonna kill your mother in front of you for simply existing Im sure a lot of you havent even watched it in the best quality available and just settled for the shitty 360p leaks, just wait for the official airing today to truly judge it at 720p. These moments are why im not fond of opening an episode discussion thread before the official release of the episode just cause it leaked.

Lol I died at that killing mother in front of u joke and today is mother's day too. Anyway, I agree the cg wasn't that bad its actually good. These guys are impatient at least they should watch the episode in HD not in 240p and then judge it.

pretty sad that this was one of the best episode in the series overall imo and it is getting overshadowed by the cgi colossal titan, this was one of the main thing I was worrying about and it prove to be the case.

It comes to the point where the less colossal titan being shown the better, I'm already imagining if all the wall titans being release, its going to be a cgi galore when that time comes.

I personally has gotten over the cgi since season 2, but it seems plenty of persons hasn't.

Oh boy...so they needed 6 Animation Directors and 3 Assistant directors for this episode despite it being littered with reused scenes & a lack of new "demanding" scenes.

That has me curious how the production will fare outside of episode 54 if they have this much of a problem already.

The anime community will never accept CGI, especially if it's "bad". I didn't mind it, but I guess it'll forever be hated.

They reused the beast titan's throw when he's throwing the barrel over the wall. Check season 2 episode 1, where he throws the horse at Mike.

I was on the verge of tears when Marco said we didn't even talked this through poor guy he died without saying anything.

I can't believe their goal is to kill all humans inside the walls, Poor Armin has to take order in a situation like that.








Someone must really have had a thing or two for Mikasa.

Oh there are. After having watched the episode twice and seeing other examples from people I count the Beast Titan barrel throw, the explosion on the houses, a few scenes in the flashback, another beast titan one and probably a moving gear one.

So thats what happened to Marco back then. Still the insight into Reiner and Bertholdt's state of mind before the battle was insightful. While certainly brave the negotiation between Armin and Bertholdt was doomed to fail from the start. Damm that mid air transformation sure ended up wiping out the majority of the corps vets here. An impressive ep as always. While featuring less action than last ep the focus on the state of mind of Reiner and Bertholdt as well as the insight into what they did previously was welcome. In the present looks like things are starting to get deadly serious for the team.

God that was a great ep. The OST fucking carried it, god damn we got like what, 3 really damn good remixed tracks from the first season? Every step of the battle has been great so far. I honestly didn't mind the CGI for the colossal, got used to it after season 2. I hope they'll make use of the advantages having that sort of model can bring like they did too with season 2 to make fans more accepting of it.

Man, Bert has come a long way. The scenes between the antagonists this ep were really well-done too, Reiner and Bert having that little bit of banter before bumping eachother on the back like true comrades was great, but I don't buy that Bert believes what he's saying at all to Armin and the others. "That's right, nobody's in the wrong. Because this world is just... that cruel." What a beautiful moment. I can't wait to see what's coming up

unfortunately disappointed. Not with the story but with everything else. the production is really lackluster, we only get like 1 or 2 nicely animated scenes in 1 episode which is not much. The cgi colossal breaks my immersion too hard. Not even the close ups or the stills are 2d anymore no hes completely 3d. Also the ost's didnt really catch me so far. Could be because of some miss placements and bad timings.

To be fair, youd only notice that if youre constantly comparing it with other scenes from the anime/constantly re watch the anime, if you just casually watch each season like I do its kinda hard to notice re used scenes like that.

Amazing Episode i really enjoyed every bit of it,the CGI Collossal Titan was not good(i had expected it) but everything else was top notch,the best part was definitely the nuke like explosion that Bertoolt caused and it's aftermath

Bertoolt was the MVP of this episode.



Marco's death scene was really sad,they really brought out the feelings.

Another very good episode!
Character drawings are still gorgeous. Good use of ost, i love the new version of youseebiggirl.
Bertholdt is easily the mvp of the episode. Man he changed a lot, he can think and decide on his own now.
Overall, this episode conveyed the manga very well, you can feel the tension and the hopelessness of squad levi.

Here I was waiting an entire week to finally see Reiner dead and he's STILL NOT DEAD after being impaled by swords and having his head blown to bits, I mean jeez at some point there needs to be some sort of progress. Not sure how many more "almost defeated Reiner" scenes I can handle.

Pretty solid episode with the flashbacks explaining Marco's death and solidifying Bertholdt's motivations, but what is actually the point of Reiner still being alive? The cliffhanger made it obvious that he would be, but it's still totally stupid; this whole thing about how Reiner can move his consciousness across his body to survive is probably the dumbest piece of writing this show has ever come up with (and not just because it came completely out of nowhere earlier this season).

I forgot a lot of details so it was nice to see this happening again. Also, with knowing more of Beast Titans's motivations right now, it does shed quite a different light on the 'everyone must die' talk.

Also can't remember Reiner was actually talking about 'race' already at this point? Yet again interesting to see these hints popping up.

And people complainging again about CGI and animation *yawn*
Sometimes I really wonder what kind of (unreasonable) stadards they have.

godly ost for a godly episode. Man the hype is real, I haven't felt this excited since the Reiner/ Bertholdt reveal. I truly have no idea how they're gonna survive against the Colossal Titan, given that the Beast Titan is an equally significant threat. Also kinda disappointed that Reiner didn't die but oh well. The CGI is gonna take a while to get used to, but in the close ups it's 2d animation so it's all right. That short fight between Bertholdt and Mikasa was really cool.

Marco's flashback was really interesting, I also loved how Annie seemed torn and anguished, we haven't had much insight into her thoughts after the female titan revelation anyways

Next ep can't come soon enough!

Holy fuck the colossal titan looks terrible. I actually didn't mind it that much in Season 2 so idk why I'm so turned off by it now.. did it get worse? All I could think of was the CGI in Courage the Cowardly Dog lol.

It was a good episode aside from that, but I'm still disappointed overall. Since S3 started, the animation has been so inconsistent and everything just doesn't feel as satisfying as S1 and S2 did. So many scenes looked much better in my head as a manga reader, and now they're kinda ruined :/

Also what's up with their OST timing? I mean the songs on their own are amazing because Sawano is a god, but the way they're using them seems off. They either choose unfitting ones for intense moments, or overuse every hype song in a span of a few minutes like this episode. Chill pls...

I don't mind the CGI, we should get something new in every episode and to make it different from the other seasons. I somehow want some new ost.
Overall, great eps.

As a manga reader, the only hype and great eps is the first episode. It was mind blowing. And since I've already known what would gonna happen, the other two eps aren't really met my expectation. But the talks actually good to build the tension.

Great episode as always.

That was super intense and damn the soundtrack is just fantastic.

It's a shame they had to retort to CGI for the colossal titan but I don't think it's bad enough to take away from the rest of the show.

They keep talking about how humanity inside the wall needs to die cause that's what's been decided, probably some masterplan at work I guess. Though it begs the question of whether a different type of humanity exists outside the walls.

Poor Marco though, he was in the wrong place in the wrong time. :(

Ahhh man god damn. Of course Reiner is not dead. The extent of this transfer conscience thing that came up last episode is pretty bs-y. Well whatever, we got lots of fight left. Some of these fuckers on the titan side need to die.

That flashback tho. Rip Marco; you didn't deserve that. Bertolt has gone total savage tho. I really hope Hange survived that. No idea how they are gonna take him down.

Did you not watch the first 2 seasons? Reiner was practically the group's big brother-figure, of course they have to kill him but that doesn't mean it feels any less like they're putting the gun to someone they actually knew and looked up to.

Why is it dumb in particular? It doesn't go against anything about the titans we've learnt so far. If anything it makes sense we'd learn this from Reiner/Bert given they've spent more time living as titans and know their ins and outs far better. There's so much about Titan physiology that seems nonsensical but still fits for the show, like how gigantic fleshy beings like them can decompose like nothing after they die or the whole thing about Titan regeneration in general. Plus it wouldn't be fitting at all for Reiner to die here.
