THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Heh, I guess their plan worked in capturing the Titan since that was their original plan. Dat LEVI. I just love this guy. Aww poor FT. Her screaming was loud as hell. I had headphones on max volume and it ringed in my ears~

Not surprised she called out Titans to attack though. Dat OST ;o

Potato Girl ftw this episode. I like how she knew about the calling out. :3. I'm not too surprising what the FT did there though considering she's a smartass.

Ended where they figured it would. I like how they added a bit more to the scene with Gunther's death.

Continuing from the last episode, looks like they are interrogating the female titan. Though it wouldn't last any longer. Oh man that ending didn't expect that one coming.

That around covered 1.5 chapters. Everything after the scream was intense, I just wish they didn't have so many stills for the action. Animation-wise it was still better than last week. Music usage made the scream scene and the scene at the end with Gunter intense. Again, one for the anime-only people.
4/5 for me.

Yes it did. The preview also didn't reveal anything, so I can't wait for the anime-only reactions next week. 21 and 22 are gonna be excellent.

I didn't really like how they animated the female titan getting eaten, but I guess it wasn't that bad.

Oh man, Gunther got sliced.

This was an okay episode, but next episode should be pretty action packed.

Another Ridiculous cliffhanger. Pretty decent episode though, the end was intense. Loved the usage of the OST. Next episode should be great so I'm looking forward to that.

Levi stomping on female titan's head made me smile for a moment, everything else was pain and suffering because of what happens in next episode.

Nanaba being a girl is unexpected but cool. And female titan screaming has to be the most terrifying thing in the anime so far.

You read the manga so: http://shingekinokyojin.wikia.com/wiki/Nanaba, should refresh your memory.
Manga spoilers for the curious one, just in case.

I'd better not have my ass handed to me like that...well, it is quite disturbing to watch those spikes piercing through her butt, that nice untainted butt, as if you'll feel the pain of it.

I lol'd at Sasha's reaction to that scream while explaining to Mikasa about those death throes.
[url]http://i41.tinypic.com/o0du1y.png[/url]
Seems the wild animal in her has awakened...Sasha ftw!

And now we have a casualty in Gunter, poor guy just got hacked like a titan, by a traitor!

Oh daaaaaaamn I gotta wait for next week again??

I've always been curious how the hardening ability will look like in anime, so here it is:



Version 2, which is an awesome shot, btw:



Erwin is not a titan, inbefore xxx assumptions, so aren't Hanji and Levi:



Heichou rocks, but I liked him here the best, because he looks like he should and closest to the manga:



The animation was good, a fitting usage of stills, especially in the chase and front attacks on the summoned titans. One of the interesting things in this part is, when you look at it, humans are forced to chop titans in order to salvage another titan. Completely different scenario from Trost, where an incident turned the tides for good, while here - the best of preparations still don't bear fruit.

Marking Sasha's intuition about the FT's howl, because of the development ahead (and in Season 2, I hope).

Loved it, 6/5.

PS. BBC fail in the forums?

The dialogue at the first half was quite dragged out man. They should have skipped some talking and end it just A BIT later.
Oh well, episode 21 and 22 will be absolute perfection so yeh.
So, What do you think is on the other side?

Whoever that female titan is, their pretty smart for using the titans to escape, but I wonder if they're trying to kill all the people on Levi's squad so they can get Eren by himself.

Also, that scene where everyone was trying to defend the female titan from those other titans, why did it have to done with stills -_-, and they were recycled as well.

But they would end this episode on a cliff hanger though, guess it's time to wait for next week again.

Rewatched it subbed. I really like some of the background art in the series, it's really noticible this week with the forest. The end with the spy taking out Gunter was really well-animated, too. The back-and-forth between Armin and Eren was a nice touch they took over from the manga, too.
But next two weeks are obviously going to the the highlights.

Too bad, its very likely to end chapter 33-34 and then a second season.
Deconstruction ≠ Darker & Edgier

Fanservice ≠ Ecchi (Though ecchi can please the fans!)
Popular ≠ Sucks... maybe
Seinen = K-ON! Shounen, Shoujo, Seinen and Josei are demographics.
Anime/Manga = Japanese Cartoons! Deal with it.

Is it me, or female titan's identity is pretty obvious?.Oh well, besides that, we have yet another amazing episode.
Also, it's getting harder and harder and harder to wait for another ep.It's really difficult to not start reading manga.

That blonde guy was a girl? what.

Sucks that Erwin's plan failed :( I always wondered if Levi hadn't said anything to the Female Titan, would she have screamed at that moment, or later? Anyways, that was a ugly sound made by the FT. And oh dear, Levi's team fell for the trap. Poor Gunther.

Well shit.

Levi's threat was perfect. "I'm going to cut off your hand and your legs. I mean your hands and legs, not the titans".

If there was any moment the Titan should have been scared, it was that moment.

Everyone is surprised that nanaba is a girl, but I'm still getting over the fact that hanji is a girl, cause it sure as hell isn't obvious in the manga.

I always wondered... Nanaba is a girl then.

She looked cool as a man.

Pretty nice episode though most of it is due to the ending. My memory is actually really weak with regards to the manga so it's a great refresher.

I don't get that, I never had a problem seeing that Hanji was a girl.
