Holy shit Armin noooo :((( loved him from the very beginning, so sad to watch him die and so painfully at that :( What I would do is fricking use that syringe on Armin in the hope that it still could work on newly-dead bodies (it might not, but has anybody ever tried that??), let him regenerate from the burns, and make him eat one of our traitors, so he could come back to his human form (because as I remember, it's the condition for a titan to be able to do that?). But that doesn't explain why Levi was so mad in that teaser at the end of last season - and I'm guessing that it had to do everything with that syringe, but that guess might be off. Maybe it's gonna be a choice between Erwin and Armin??
Also, Levi is some sort of god of blades, this episode is the final proof of that, and I feel he deserved to get that last Beast kill, and he was denied :( Levi you blood-drenched hero, I salute thee!

This episode was beautifully done, I liked the music a lot and the overall calm but extremely sad atmosphere in the end.

And with that the shit gets real. I don't think I'm ready for the next episode :(

Magnificent. This show finally reached the pinnacle I knew it could. If I didn’t ever see the ending of this show I would still be ok knowing this was the last episode I’d see. From the high stakes to the strategic plans, fighting, Ariel maneuvering, camera angles showing off the Titans towering over everything, and the heroic deaths from multiple characters I give this 10/10. The choreography of everything was so beautifully done and exciting that I believe it to be AoT best work. I was adrenaline pumped through Levi’s scene. Which brings me to a few points so I don’t ramble on about how excellent I think this episode was. Lol 1. Can we please make a spin-off with Levi as the MC? 2. I am convinced after watching this that Levi is the strength of this show because he is the most skilled. Eren is the heart of the show because he’s MC and a titan which is what the show is about. And finally Armin is the soul of this show because he represents everyone’s hopes and dreams. Both The other characters and the audience watching. His quote as a kid about not losing because he didn’t run was the ribbon on top. Finally Was does some debris hit them when others don’t? Lmao The rocks the beast giant threw killed everyone but the debris didn’t hurt anyone when Reiner was tearing up houses. Lol Except when Sasha missed her thunder spear and Reiner blew her away with the house. Idk I just need consistency haha Either way best ep of the whole series imo.

Wow, that episode was something else. The first one to really hit home this season. Not that the earlier episodes were bad by any means but the impact of this one was heavy. Stunning sakuga.

This show is so much better when it doesn't attempt at politics or try to develop boring characters like Historia. It took me forever to finish part 1 of this season, and now I can't wait for the next episode!

Great fights with cool animation and nice strategy! Erwin, Armin and Levi were the true beasts.


Oh man you better enjoy these last few episodes because you certainly don't understand what AoT is about

Great ep. But the Levi fight on Zeke was much better in the manga.
Armin looks very well done there hehe.

I feel like Levi vs Beast would be more emotionally satisfying if it was in the last episode. My hype died out a bit after a week of waiting. With that said, holy fuck that animation, god mode Levi surely didn't disappoint.

The freaking ED song almost made me cry.


But it couldn't have been in the last ep. Unless I'm forgetting how it goes in the manga, they're following the timeline of the manga just perfectly now.
This was supposed to happen now, then after the next ep I know what's going to happen if they follow the manga completely.
And if they do that stuff after the next ep, you non manga readers will be in for a great treat.

They took how it was in the manga, and made it a million times better. That was glorious, my only complaint is that I wish it lasted longer. Mikasa fucking up Reiner with that thunder spear was also beautifully animated, what an episode.

Looks like we're finally entering the part of the story that was briefly teased in the ED of the final episode of S3 part 1.....
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.

I have read the manga. I don't agree that anime should always perfectly follow the source. Manga cliffhanger doesn't necessarily need to be an anime cut off point. The fight could be fit into the last episode if they adjust the pacing/switch things around a bit.

I'm really curious what will happen next

It seems like the battle is already over
Reiner and Berthold have been defeated, and Beast Titan is seriously injured as well, and basically all of the soldiers are dead

And there are still 5 episodes left

Well, we'll figure it out eventually :D

But that'd make no sense? Levi vs the Beast Titan had to happen at this moment, if you switched it any later it wouldn't make sense at all given the last episode was building up to it. Did you forget Erwin sending himself and all the troops to their deaths was solely to lead Levi to the Beast Titan? They couldn't have done it any later or they'd all get wiped out by rocks.

Fully agree with your review of the ep. Man it feels so good to see this series reach this point, I knew from the start SnK was going to be something special, it's almost euphoric to see other people start to realize just how good this series actually is from season 2/3 onwards to now

I'm saying that they should put Levi vs Beast BEFORE the last episode ended... Basically going straight from Erwin's sacrifice to Levi without ending the episode.

Damn, hadn't noticed that there's only 10 eps this season.
Hmm, then the last 4 will hopefully be of the arc I'm hoping for. Seeing as what they showed in the preview for this part, then I'm guessing they'll do the arc I want to see for the last 4 eps.
It'll be some great 4 last eps then.

I mean, they could've? I don't see why they should've though. This episode was perfect because of how it was paced, we got to see the payoffs of everyone's noble sacrifices all at once, the tonal shift for this episode was absolutely spot-on. I wouldn't have it any other way, especially since it's how the author intended it.

The fight was like 3-4 minutes long. They could've just skipped the OP/ED, or cut everything about the 104th corps after Eren got kicked up the wall and put it in this episode instead. The pacing wouldn't even change that much. I'm just not into how there's a week break between the build up and the pay off.

I mean, that's a problem that could just be nullified by watching the season after it's all aired? There's nothing that can be done to avoid anime episodes airing 1 week after the other, it's just something that comes with the medium of TV anime. I'm sure watching the eps back to back gets rid of this issue quite easily. I don't think the OP/ED should be skipped at all since they add a lot to making the episodes enjoyable imo, plus it would've been crammed to hell and back, ending last week's episode on Erwin making his elder god-tier final speech before biting the bullet was the perfect way to end the episode with maximum effect for his sacrifice.

What can we also ask for?
I think the scene where Levi, Mikasa, and Eren talk to each other on some roof will appear in next episode (this scene has appeared in the last minutes of last episode of the first part).

Sure, but that would mean I have to wait until all episodes are out? That's a pretty bad argument considering that the anime is intended to be released one episode per week. I've been watching airing seasonal since 2011 and this "issue" rarely came up.

I would say the maximum effect of Erwin's sacrifice is the satisfaction of seeing his goal came true (in this case, the Beast Titan going down), but let's just agree to disagree there.

Fair enough. I can appreciate seeing a different interpretation of these events, I hope the rest of the episode delivered for you at least.

Don't tell me Armin is going to be Meruem 2.0 lol. I would rather have Erwin be the one to get the titan sperm. No idea who's getting it, initially I thought the random soldier who didn't die would be the chosen one. They still have to get Zeke first though right? Can't remember if the titan sperm they have is pleb titan or also one with special powers

Great episode, action was on point, not the best tho imo.

Oh SHIT! The Plays
Levi fucking up the Beast Titan in his enrage as expected, Armin sacrificing himself so Eren can finish off Bertholdt With his ODM Gear! And Reiner getting defeated again with the help of Hange, had a feeling she survived it, it looked like the other guy was going to cover her right before Bertholdt nuked the place, didn't make the episode any less awesome though, Damn!

Thanks I forgot, what exactly happens again if you become a pure titan? You lose your consciousness and can't turn back right? Or do you just have the power to turn into a normal titan

Fuuuuuuuuck. AS IF Erwin dying a pitiful, helpless, and vain death wasn't enough for one episode-- watching Armin feign lack of courage while explaining his plan, and Eren realizing his intentions; that was the most heart-wrenching thing Ive seen in years.

Erwin is [probably] dead. Armin gets baked Roy Mustang style. Levi vs Beast Titan animation, um, yes. Beast Titan is defeated but escapes. Exactly one survivor from the suicide calvary (a flicker of hope after Levi was looking for someone to eat the Beast). Bertolt and Reiner are defeated and captured (unless they escape next week too). Aaaand most importantly, best girl Zoë is alive. HOLY SHIT what an episode.

That sperm turns u into a normal titan.. a stupid and idiot titan that eats humans exactly like all the normal titans u know... but if u eat someone that has the ability of titan transform... u get his titan and turn back into a human with the ability to transform into the titan u ate..
Hope u got it

Yeah, I don't like so that means I don't understand. LOL


Lol but on some real shit if you didn't really enjoy part 1 then consider this arc and even this episode AoT's peak. It won't get better, actually probably worse for you at the end of this arc and going forward. The manga readers remaining are AoT's fans that sticked through so obviously most of them will tell you that it's getting better and better, but the truth is basement reveal and what follow was a a deal breaker for a lot of people.
