I can not say this enough aot was and is amazing anime, such a powerful episode
hit me right in the feels with the decisions that levi had to make
and the voice acting was so top notch like I could feel the pain in their voices w/o them
over selling the emotion or the classic scream loud af to seem MORE SAD
This series is up there in shounens for amongst the ranks of HxH 2011

Best comedy episode, Snk always delivers with its stupid plot armours.

>Armin gets lethal burns on his entire body and falls from such a high wall, an absolutely fatal position
>"Oh but look, since he is one of the main characters, he is still barely alive and breathing!!! So get the serum!"

And hence follows the subsequent drama. Hilarious episode, even more funny that Reiner's plot armour from few episodes ago.


You are the best "Stupid" comment i have read in the whole snk thread. Congratulations.

I bet you are always Laughting when see flying man with steam gear and rope in this show. Because that is very unlogical.

This episode still managed to tug my heartstrings, even though there wasnt the slightest possibility of Armin dying... well, he is the narrator. That screwed them over.
Still though, it was emotional; honestly would've preferred Reiner to be eaten than berdhtholt, but hey, what can you do?

wow, so finally reiner was saved by zeke, and they ran away with that weird titan, honestly he was a fucking bastard that I really hated, it made me very annoyed when the reiner was always filled with luck, and bert looked so sorry, in the end he was made titan food, and still remember Annie and try to call her name LOL, and now Armin will have the power of a colossal Titan now, so the walls will not be penetrated by the enemy anymore

Reviving generally is bullshit, whether you're doing it on a burned or not so burned body. Good thing we haven't still figured out soul quantum mechanics or homo sapiens resurrection principles.

Thank God Levi chose Armin over Erwin. Armin is so bright and has created so many plans for them, I can't imagine the series without him <3

Amazing. This entire season, both parts, are amazing. Deserved 10.
The lack of music, Berthold crying for help. 5/5

I expected Mikasa to go nuclear here, but everyone was too tired so it was rather calm. Super intense. The ED really fits too well for this season.

Lol at them for completely forgetting about Furry Titan and his ride though. This lost them Reiner. But I guess colossal titan is a better catch than armored titan since Eren already fits that role with hardening.

And Erwin is gone for good.

Next ep is basement reveal. I cant wait. All those years of "go read the manga" and its finally here.

Imagine failing to understand the philosophy of dreams and obsessions and the ethical dilemmas presented in this episode and writing the episode off because you're annoyed Armin took in some undue O2 molecules while parting away with life. I truly pity you.

YES! Looks like the prediction I made last week was correct, Armin ate Bert and gained the power of the colossal titan, and the Levi vs Mikasa and Eren conflict was tied on the usage of the titan serum. Great performance, I got super into it thanks to the voice actors, they really are amazing


Anyway, it was so satisfying seeing Bert finally meet the same fate he forced onto Marco, and countless other people, while helplessly screaming for help. Finally got what he deserves, it's a shame Reiner managed to escape.


Also, looks like Grisha and Zeke know each other, we already knew that Grisha came from outside the walls, so it's safe to assume he comes from whatever village Zeke, Bert, Annie and Bert are from. Weird how Zeke seems to think that Eren, and everyone else inside the walls is brainwashed when it totally seems like the opposite to me, with the way he, and the other titan shifters talk about their objective.

Can't wait to see that basement next week!

I was unsure if they where gonna truly kill off Armin or not, I'm not surprised that they didn't since we new about the serum beforehand.

About the thing him surviving that fall? Sure I wouldn't argue against that he shouldn't have, but at the same time Eren and Reiner have survived alot aswell. But it is also Anime and Attack on Titan so I wouldn't blame it to much, since the world isn't very realistic from the start, you know with the whole concept of the 3rd maneuver gear. So I am alittle surprised how critical people are of these stuff sometimes. I do understand the complaints, I rolled my eyes alittle aswell and like I said, I wouldn't argue against him surviving the fall being illogical. But I don't think it breaks the episode or the show.

This episode caused me to shed some tears. What a difficult situation they were in, Eren, Mikasa, Levi, Hange and the others ... Choose between the life of the greatest minds in this story ... Erwin and Armin. A situation incredibly tense and sad.
It hurt me a lot to see Mikasa and Eren crying, and do not know how much joy I felt when Levi, despite being in debt to Erwin, chose the life of Armin who still had a dream, a dream that went beyond defeating the titans A dream that allowed him to live. Levi surprised me too. He has gained even more respect from me.
I will quote Eren's word when he says "The savior of humanity is not me and much less Erwin, it's Armin!" And after seeing that little flashback, I realize that there is a lot of reason in his words.

If only Reiner had not been rescued by Zeke, another story would be, but I do not blame Jean and Hange for their decision. If there was the slightest chance of saving someone like Arminy and Erwin, they should take advantage of it. It's a shame, perosé that every decision and sacrifice has a meaning in this story. It only remains to say "Keep surprising me".

After these 6 episodes, I will definitely increase a point this season 8/10 to 9/10.
I am frustrated, sad, satisfied and happy. I would not know how to explain it. This anime is undoubtedly a gem. Not many stories cause so many feelings in the viewer.

It means you can't take no serious anime seriously, because they all have plot armor. The time when Kenny gave Levi the syringe you should have figure it out that it would eventually be used, its called chekhov's gun.

@Mei-o_Scarlett
Don't paint us all like the villains, if you read through these discussion plenty of us agree that Armin surviving is plot armored and we didn't make any excuses for that.

Also why shouldn't someone think their series is superior to other series? That is pretty much every anime fan in a nutshell.

Flock has finally started showing his flocking annoying side. It's sad that he is only going to get worse.

I was annoyed when Reiner was saved in the manga, but after recent chapters, I am happy to see Reiner saved. Though, pretty sure he would have preferred being killed here.

I didn't notice it before, but Jean really does seem to care for his comrades.

Eren fought against Levi, and Mikasa cried for someone other than Eren. Both of these events still surprise me (in a good way).

Armin's abs don't look much different from the manga. How sad. I thought Wit Studio would make it look better.

I feel like the way the events were presented in this episode wasn't very good. I don't remember much from the manga, but I think the scenes were done chillingly well in it.

The animation felt quite off at times, like when Erwin slapped Levi's hand away or when Mikasa struggled against Hanji's grasp. Also, the characters' faces kept changing and their eyes weren't looking in the correct directions. I thought the art director was supposed to fix that.

So that's how Hanji lost an eye!

Bert being eaten by armin "REEEEEEEINNNNNNERRRRRR!"Pretty much, lmao. I get that the message was that Bertolt was no different from all those poor bastards who were crying when they were eaten by the Titans, but after such display of cold blood and acceptance in the previous episodes, it felt jarring as heck.


If you actually see him when he was grabbed, he was smiling when he saw Eren and friends, He thought they were coming to save him. Bertholt lost this memories of the battle, that's why he was crying asking for help. Really subtle stuff you won't see if your eyes are glued to subtitle.

No, the previous episode was epic, and gave an incredible send off to armin, yet all it was was a cheap fakeout where the next ep he just coughs that he's alive despite supposedly being beyond dead. Erwin being alive (but dying) is believable(nobody would instantly die from being hit where erwin was dead, they'd bleed a lot and die quickly but thats it) and should have been the logical choice.
Okay why don't you create your own Attack on Titan and write it your way?

Can you stop giving the fandom a bad name with such retarded responses? Just because someone's not a writer or doesn't work in the industry, doesn't mean they can't criticize poor writing. What is wrong with most AoT fans and their stupid way of thinking?

I was at edge of my sit watching this, cringing on who will Levi save! But his decision became clear when Erwin flicked that syringe and his words came into mind. Eren's words were passionate and touching, I would've saved Armin too if I was Levi.

Still would've loved Levi even if he saved Erwin, that guy is unhateble to me!

Wow do people in attack on titan fandom actually thinks their show has no plot armor and asspull? If that was the case then they wouldn't have named Reiner plot armored titan. Of course it's fictional show just like jojo it has asspull too but people still enjoy it regardless. asspulls only make show intresting because they use that as an advantage to make story better unless it's Fairy Tail. Araki and Isayama are one of those manga creator who use asspull to make things better which fans will enjoy it and they succeed too.

I absolutely love this episode and this series in general butt let's talk about criticisms for now shall we.

Okay, the stuff about Armin's plot armor. I mean yea but from the last episode the one question I had in my mind was "How tf did armin end up on that side of the wall???"

Like maybe he could've if he collided with the wall but he isn't some sort of bouncy ball to end up all the way to that building.

lmao
Anime:
4th Degree Burns and fall from 50 Metre
--> not logical survival

Real Life:
Plane Crash from 31000-38000 feet (just for reference this is more than 50 metres lmao) engine fire burns the entire plane in free fall
multiple survivors
--> totally logical


Wow, you must either be an anime character in an anime world with dumb laws of physics, or a complete ignorant of real life events. It's not even been 2 months since the Ethiopian air crash incident that left no survivors. The 737 was in the air for barely 6 minutes after takeoff at 7000 feet altitude before it's malfunction that irremediably led to the fatal crash.

Do you even understand English? If someone doesnt like a hole the size of a pinhole in a giant wall, they might as well make their own wall. That's what Im saying. Im not saying criticising writing is bad, Im saying criticise a crack, not an irrelevant pinhole. Otherwise it makes you look like some retard ass hater looking for those pinholes which normal people, who are trying to enjoy the show, would overlook.

It's these type of people who ruin the community.

It's great to see some semblance of results from this battle. After all the action the approach to the dialogue and tension here was interesting. Really unfortunate how close Erwin was to the basement, but understandable given the circumstances and what everyone went through. Also felt like his delayed last words was a cool response to levi and orange hair lad, but sad to see since he was dreaming. ahhh sigh they still lost big here :/

Even with all the amazing voice acting, you got to give some respect to the actual sound director, this episode lack of music is absolutely a great choice, as it focuses on character acting the music will kinda ruin it, but the only scene with music had the ThanksAT soundtrack playing which was perfect for that scene, really really well adapted.

The only reason you find it ridiculous is because you don't like the writing choice Isayama took, no offence. Just because you don't like a writing choice doesn't mean it's cheap. Simple as that, if you wanted Armin to die that bad of a heroic death, well ohkay? Obtaining Titan Powers has a twist to it anyways.


No, I wanted armin to survive, I never wanted him to die. But if you're going to raise the stakes and have him literally get beyond toasted and people in this show die with far less, then you have to stick to your guns instead of going for a low effort fakeout, because that's what it was, he a good execution and got scared, and backpedalled out of it.
So youre saying a transfer of powers planned for years by Isayama is a result of him getting scared? In your case of the argument, Erwin also got a phenomenal send off, so how did he survive?

You'd think at this point they would always be on alert mode to ensure they see titans from afar. They should've had Connie and Jean do that. I get it though, it's not Reiner's time to die yet.

Yeah some people are being really farfetched, but majority of attack on titan fans in this forum agreed with Armin having plot armor, that will not stop people from loving the show though because story will not get downhill because of that.

right back at you you goddamn peasant
you disregard thousands of occurences where people have survived by looking at one event where people haven't survived to justify ur statement, which is flawed as fuck

@ExodiaX

Me of all people, the very first one that call Reiner plot armored in the discussion thread when this chapter was release in the manga, the same one that never liked none of this serumboil drama, the same one who didn't like that Armin was revived back to life is being use as an example? I'm triggered!






^ 2016 proof to back up my claim.

Sure I have gotten over it, but I was no way defending it in this thread.

Did you even finish this episode? Levi did not revive Erwin because he didn't want Erwin to suffer from being the captain again. That's it. Not because Levi likes Armin or whatever.

I mean yeah SnK has quite a few dumb plotlines anyway(some Reiner plot armours for example) so it's hard to say which is worse. Personally this was worse for me because how much drama was created when it shouldn't have existed anyway(but plot armour saves the day as usual).


Chill, if you hate this show then stop watching it.

the fact there wasn't any music till the end made this episode feel even more depressing being in Levi's shoes would've been a nightmare,


when you don't try to think about how Armin was still alive (i for sure thought he was dead)
this episode was great it was a tough call but i can understand not picking erwin he peaked and was put in a situation where he had to kill him and all of his crops ,would you really want to be brought back with all that guilt


after all of that though levi's wording from the hype trailer felt kinda misleading was thinking Eren did something so unbelievable fucked up


is the moment finally coming up?!

That was well, rough. Great episode though.

I was suspicious that they might use the titan injection thing that Levi mentioned last episode to revive Armin but I definitely did not forsee the scenario where Levi ended up having to choose between Armin and Erwin.

This was really intense to watch, emotions everywhere, makes you really wonder that if you were in such a scenario, how would you choose between two lives? What can use to determine the worth of one's life and why it's worth saving. If only we could save everybody right? :(

The OST kicking at the end was so so good.

I understand the criticism about Armin's survival, it's definitely more convenient than Erwin's own survival, I actually thought Levi showing hesitation last episode and the four legged titan saving beast was a little convenient too but ultimately, this is fiction. It's a story, it will always have plot conveniences and plot armor because it needs to tell that story. It can be good sometimes, it can get bad if overdone but in this case I'm sure we can overlook it cause of the raw emotion .

R.I.P Erwin, I will miss you and your Shinzou wo Sasageyo! Show's not gonna be the same without him. :(
