This is the greatest episode of this series, after episode 21 of the 1st season.
The animation, the OST, the feels.
Thanks Studio WIT, you didn't disappoint!!!!!!!

Damn! Such a legendary episode!
Levi vs beast Titan did not disappoint, and Armin, Mikasa all shined in their battles as well.
Note the development of Mikasa, from season 1 where she tries to be with Eren during Trost invasion, to now where she understands she must focus on her own battles.
Although I know what happens next, it's still so painful to watch Armin sacrifice him self. And that scene with Eren slicing Bert was epic! It's symbolic that what defeated the colossal in the end wasn't the Titan but rather Eren in his human form.
All in all a wonderful episode. Can't wait for next week! AOT is what alleviates me from the doom and gloom of exams this season. :')

Levi vs Beast titan was kinda disappointing in anime compared to manga in my opinion but armin scene was handed really good. If I be honest this season by far has a hit or miss animation compared to uprising arc which was barely even about action. Hope new animated studio do a justice in season 4.

How was levi vs beast titan fight dissapointing? If its the music then i can understand but if its the animation, then u are wrong



Maybe i'm in the minority but something was feeling really off and I'm not hating, attack on titan is one of my favorite manga.

No other animator could have done the levi vs beast titan fight better than Imai, so I'm hoping you are disappointed because the soundtrack didn't match the fight and not the animation, I will repeat again, no one can top Imai when it comes to these scenes so prepare to be disappointed on which ever studio takes snk if its true, because you will be wishing that you didn't say that.

You must have some really high expectation, I personally wasn't hype much when I read the manga version, but this episode was better than the manga imo.

@ExodiaX
You need to explain what was off about it, because I'm honestly puzzled here, you can't say it is bad animation, so what is it then?

Like I said I'm not hating and I'm not here to start an argument but that fight overall was alright, I'll make sure to not get too much hype, sorry if my comment was unnecessary.

Aaahah, this sucks. Feels so unfair to have character like Armin just kinda... go. If you check the opening sequence there is exactly half a frame: after Armin opens his eyes it instantly shows his burned body (though you can't tell if it is him, but you kinda can thanks to symbolism of it all). So if someone actually cared to watch the opening in slow-motion - AT LEAST YOU DON'T FEEL AS SAD NOW.
So there is still that syrenge left. We have about 2 crucial characters who could be saved - Erwin and Armin. WHICH ONE WILL OUTRIGHT REFUSE IT BECAUSE HE CAN AT LEAST MOVE HIMSELF?? This is so cruel.

oh great now i'm sad.

zeke vs levi was honestly pretty good. i can't say i was blown away, but imai sure came through and impressed me. i kinda wish the fight was longer - it felt really short, but i don't remember the fight being much longer in the manga. i think they just had to cut some stuff out for censoring purposes. it just didn't feel as epic as the manga.

armin's sacrifice had me crying - i cried when i read the manga but there's something about seeing it animated that really hits you. i think next episode is gonna make me cry more tho.

looks like
is next week. not ready.

Marlowes Voice Actor did such a fantastic Job.
You really felt his Pain and Fear.
I gotta watch this again in 1080p
I can see why people wouldn't love the OST in the Levi vs Beast Fight, although i personally enjoyed it.
Jesus what an Emotional Episode it was..
I loved it so much.

Made the strongest titan (that we saw until now) look like a weak piece of crap

War Chief Zorge (or what) never had to face anyone determined up close. All he has is the power of titan, he has zero experience what happens when someone cripples the titan in melee, the only thing he figured out is when Levi was going for his neck. He is basically a power-drunk scum pretending to have a higher moral standing.

I agree with you. In the end credits of this episode we see Erwin lifting up his arm and Levi reacting sorrowful. I think it's possible that Erwin sacrifaced himself to save Armin's life, knowing that they only have one syringe and that he's the smartest.

Weirdly paced but I enjoyed it. Its kind of obvious/educated guess that Armin will probably get that injection to get him to heal/turn into titan, the way Levi randomly stressed it with beast titan spoiled that for me. "I need someone to turn into titan to eat and gain power of other titan" -> Same episode Armin 'dies'...Don't tell me if im right or wrong tho.

The episode is way to intense. Watching levi slicing beast titan was on other level. Nonetheless 104th buddies also did well dealing with armoured and Colossal titans but all these achievements have cost them alot.

God. I fucking cried, that was something else. Imai was saving the best for the most pivotal ep, the animation was stunning. Levi vs the Beast Titan was better-animated than anything I could imagine and 2Volt fit the entire scene so well, the scouts vs Reiner had some really slick dynamic action too but good god, the scene of Eren scaling the Colossal and ripping out Bertholdt, all in glorious 2D. That alone makes up for my qualms about the CGI in this season honesty. God I loved this ep to death, honestly the OST I thought was perfectly used this time round, the lack of purely epic tracks with more melancholic, dramatic ones helped keep the ep's tone consistently somber all the way through. Stuff like Zeke's inner-monologues, Marlowe's final moments, and by god every single bit of Armin's performance, from his acceptance of his death to the last seconds of the ep where Eren says he was the bravest of them all.

Best episode in the series, hands down. This show is utterly fantastic.

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.

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.

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!

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.
