I agree and the colossal titan only appeared at the end of the episode..

I still hate Bertholdt but his character development was amazing to see. And now I miss Annie even more.
The preview of the next episode made me realize of what's coming and I just didnt want to see that part, it's gonna be the worst. :(

Reiner did exactly what i thought last week now the only the question is he stuck as titan or can he heal his human body and transfer his consciousness back

While I agree that some people get too hung up on that particular aspect, I do not share this sentiment of "quit complaining about it, praise stuff instead". We're not in some sort of echo chamber here where negative opinions are excluded for the sake of people who can't deal with that.

It's Not like complaining is going to do anything . Animes will continue to use it if people like it or not.

Anime has used it for years now it's not going away anytime soon

Personally, I loved this season so far despite some bits being eh and meh. I just wished the higher ups of WIT Studio didn't cram so many projects for the animators to do and primarily focus on Shingeki No Kyojin instead . What do you guys think?

I agree, S1 and S2 were perfectly handled by WIT, S3 is inconsistent but still a 10/10.

Alright they can complain but honestly is complaining all they can do? They are ignoring all the other good parts of the episode just because of the CGI and how come they still can't get over it after seeing it so many times

The OP really grew on me after listening to it a few times. Overall, it's the best episode in the season so far. OST is godly, as expected. The CGI colossal titan doesn't bother me that much. The next episode is something i'm not ready for.

I can't help but laugh when people say they want Reiner dead LOL he's one of the best characters, if not the best, in aot and is so important to the plot of the story. I'm assuming most people who HATE Reiner are anime onlys

There is a mistake in the scene after Mikasa threw her blade. After she threw her right blade towards bertholt, naturally she lost the right blade. But then when she started running, the blade was still there. And after that when she was speaking with Armin the right handle was still empty. Good job.

P.S. too lazy to add images

I thought about that too but after that frame the right handle was empty (when she was speaking with Armin). There is no logic nor time to draw a blade and sheathe it again in that little intense period of time.

Eh, its still a good episode..I just wish people would talk about how they enjoyed it more is all. Like, you can voice your complaints, but when the thread is filled with nothing but them, and barely anyone talking about how they like the episode each week, it gets tiring as hell.

At long last, they finally show how Marco got killed. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time when he overheard Reiner and Bertholt's secret plan and his sharp thinking made him convinced that they weren't joking about. To confirm that, Reiner pins him to the ground, orders the terrified Annie to remove his ODM gear and leave Marco at the mercy of a titan, who ate him.

Even though they left him to die, Reiner, Bertholt and Annie still had terrified expressions on their face as Marco got eaten. It sums up how powerful the whole scene was from start to finish.

Bertholt's moves really swung the tide of the fight in favour of the titans. The negotiations with Armin fell apart quickly and he actually held his own against Mikasa briefly before quickly moving on and transforming, catching Hange's squad in the transformation blast. I really hope her squad is okay. D=

No surprise that the anti-3D CGI brigade have made their complaints known, AGAIN, about the Colossal Titan being in 3D, but I'm not really bothered by it anymore. Sure, some of his movements felt a bit too stiff while other scenes were actually alright, but it's not as bad as others say about it.

I doubt things are going to get any better for Erwin's squad at this rate, and the preview only makes it sound like they're going to suffer more as well. I'm still pumped up for the next episode either way, though. =)

Ah, so that's how Marco died... Reiner, Bertholdt and Annie all played a part in his death because Marco overheard Reiner and Bertholdt's conversation. Those bastards! And it was pretty reckless for them to have that convo outside instead of indoors. They just assumed that it was just them two around when that wasn't the case.

And looks like the thunder spears seemed to have failed in killing Reiner, unfortunately.

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.

Yeah, no spoilers but I think all this will be resolved in episode 5 with the pacing

Beautiful episode!

Marco's flashback is PHEW! The CGI does not bother that he has "missed". I find it even successful.

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

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

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

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.
