THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Episode aired 30 minutes earlier than usual today.

Dat OST ;.; so smooth and calm. God damn it, I still miss Levi's squad from that fight. RIP ;.; . I feel bad for Levi obviously as well. I also feel a bit sorry for Irvin as well considering his plan is a bit...broken now.

Freaking Titans. Pretty decent action in the second half. I just love this OST. Retreaaaaaaaaaaat. Levi looks pissed this episode LOL. I'm not surprised though.

Eh some more flashbacks..somewhat nice to revisit the peace humanity once enjoyed I guess. (and horror) Well at least Eren is back. They lost so many people though ;.; Fucking FT. I can feel Eren's feels somewhat at the end there.

Pretty sure they will reveal FT's identity next week with that PV. I can imagine they will play an OST similar to the one used this week when that happens, maybe.

Weird filler ep, but whatever.

Dumping Petra's body got me, hard. That was a cheap shot.

I really liked most of the filler material. The moment with Eren there as a kid and then with the scouting legion cape, dumping Petra's body(why would you do that anime-writers arghhrgh). Levi's confrontation with the Female Titan looked great, too and then Petra's dad and Eren's tears capping it off.

5/5. Very nice expansion.

A lot of it was. The stuff with the soldiers wanting to go back for their dead friend and the titans attacking was all anime original.

Good stuff.

I'm sure it was writen by Isayama, so much details that are missed on Manga, and its not the first time that we see some "special details" with more explanations for those that read the manga

Example: When they come back on Manga, there's no bodies, i always wonder why there's not an scene of Petra's father with his daughter, now i know why, and fuck, it was so freaking sad! T^T

(Sorry for my english, i'm spanish XD)

Yeah, the expansion makes sense, it explains why we never saw bodies in the manga. It's so freaking cruel, though. Well, that's just how shingeki is.

I feel betrayed by MBS for airing episode earlier ლ(ಠ益ಠლ Sounds like it was good (can sad be good..?) episode with all additional stuff, can't wait for raws ;_;

edit: who'd have thought that fillers can make you cry? This was even more depressing than the last episode. I don't have words anymore..

I guess it wasn't that bad of a filler episode.
The action wasn't too bad and they got some feels in.
When they dropped Petra's body.. Then with her dad at the end ;_;

No, they added new scenes so they could do an episode with only 30 pages of manga.

Great direction and understanding of source material can do wonderful things. Also it wasn't complete filler. It covered all of chapter 30.

Damn this episode felt kind of sad to me. Felt bad for Levi this ep. Speaking of Levi did he turn into sonic. I mean he was rolling while cutting the shit out of that female titan. Also was the female titan crying? why? I guess next episode we might get to she who it is inside the ft. Great episode this week imo.

It was fine. Short, but it was short in the manga as well.

Found this episode pretty good, the added stuff makes it really powerful and depressing.

Also, noticed how the recap contained some clips from the previous episode that were not animated last week, kindda teases us with some of the fixes to come on the Bluray release :p

I got hit hard in the feels when Eren saw the kid that was just like him, and he realised that his dream wasn't so great as he imagined and then he cried (MIKASA WAS HOLDING HIS HAND!!!!!!) but it was sad to see how it was almost like a mirror to all those years ago, and Eren dream with the Scouting Legion cape when he was a child :( . While a lot of this episode was filler it was filler that expanded and added to the story instead of just seeming tacked on, did love this episode although it was sad.

Man, I'm not Levi's biggest fan, but he really pulled through this episode, and I couldn't help but feel bad for him, It was so sad when he watche Petra's body be discarded :( .

Wait, do the bodies get burnt? Granting them a viking-like death, thus an honorable one?

Or

Do they get thrown as bait for Titans for the remaining soldiers to escape?

It'd be sad if it's the second option ._.


And, fuck yes Mikasa, going on the offense like that.

The bodies were pushed off the carts in order to escape the titans chasing them.

Had a good laugh at "going on the offence" the moment was sweet and sad, they both recognised that it was a scene from their lives so long ago, when things were ok.
This episode is a good example that Eren is a lot deeper than "hurr durr kill titans" and that he does have a lot of emotion, he just struggles to show anything but anger most of the time.

I enjoyed that extra stuffs Wit had added on this episode.

Levi owning that Female Titan...like a boss! Too bad he broke his leg :(

And what about that beautiful girl showed before the first half ended, is she Erd's fiancèe?

5 / 5 from me. Such a sad episode TT^TT

I was disappointed a bit at Levi rescue Eren & Mikasa part since I was waiting to see it for so long. It seems like the animation for that scene kind of lacking. Levi sporting that SONIC moves was awesome though. GOTTA GO FAST!!

Not to mention one of his glorious panel in the manga when by really fast too (though that was the point of that panel). I still laughing at that for some reason XD
http://i.imgur.com/ia2RlRY.jpg

Though the filler was really good, it does feel like they added some extended scene that was supposed in manga to this ep. It's really hard to see so many of the soldiers dead bodies especially Levi's team. Than the titan suddenly chasing them while they transported the bodies back to the wall was unexpected.

What making it worse that one of the bodies that use as the bait for the titans was Petra! I was like NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Not enough she get stomped by FT before than that scene happen, dammit!!!! ;_;
Levi's expression at that scene NOOOOO!!! & Petra's dad cheerfully talking to him make it much more painful D:

Nice touch with Eren's flashback. Damn this episode! I always thought this chapter in the manga was really sad but the anime expansion for it just make it much more depressing ;_;

they did a great job of adding stuff to the original material. It really felt like it was straight out of the manga. It added more to Levi's character especially

They way they threw of the bodies from the cart was depressing :(

Eren seeing himself and Mikasa in those 2 kids, and realizing how little he knew back then, was a scene i always loved in the manga

5/5

filler that fits the story. How rare.
Although after I read some commenst and it might be wrote by author himself that would explain the stuff. Still to make something in anime more brutal than in manga... they don't beat around the bush.

Action scenes with Levi slashing down FT was also awesome.

And I didn't see it in manga that well but here despair at their faces at the end of episode especially Ervin was much better.

In the contrast scene where FT cries was way to fast to the point where someone asked the question did she really cry. Well I mention this because in manga we can just stop at the panel and look as long as we want.

Ah one more thing. I really like filler part where Armin had his five seconds. He really becomes more and more scary.

Cuz the titans usually eat the whole body and even if remain something no one will risk his life for a corpse, that's why they don't bring dead bodies when they return and not why the bury them outside.

Yeah the only good think in this episode it was Levi raping that bitch.

It's not far-fetched considering they bothered to bring back dismembered arms and the likes in their previous outings.

No, they don't. That's why there were so many corpses around after Trost.

And, why everyone has to die in this anime? When Petra's father was talking to Levi, I almost cried here.

It's a different story to bring back a arm than to bring a whole body.

I HATE THIS SERIES SO MUCH RIGHT NOW!!! First they kill off Petra and now they get rid of her body?!?!?! All this series does is rip out my heart, eat it, spit it out, give me a week to get over it, and then repeat!!! DX
YET WHY DO I STILL LOVE IT?!?!

and I don't care if this was a filler. It was good enough to make me cry and that's all I care about...

This was not a filler episode, it's in the manga, they just embellished certain scenes into the anime...
