Why do I feel like that that patch was from Petra's jacket? ;_;


it probably was because there was no way that levi actually went back to get the patch from his body and im guessing the person levi went up to when the bodies werent loaded into the cart was probably someone from his squad.im thinking it has to be petra.

My heart is officially broken. Petra's dad... Jesus Christ.
Levi keeps his pain and everything inside, that's just terrible.

That scene of levi saving Eren should’ve been added to last week episode , it would have had a more Epic Impact, but oh well Levi demonstrated his Godly skills, Mikasa is like a noob in comparison.

FT crying after Levi got Eren ?? Does that mean she regrets slaughter that entire people, as it was all for nothing!!

The Survey Corps and Petra corpses getting thrown off, is extremely brutal and that scene of Levi with Petra's dad is a real tearjerker !

The last scene at the end is defiantly interpreting, what Survey Corps goes through every time they fail and they've experienced that Crushing feeling 57 times, really much respect!!

This was seriously really sad, I cried during the second half of the ep :'(
I got so hyped from the beginning when Levi practically owned the FT and then it kinda went down with the sudden filler....but it was a surprisingly good one :)

In episode 21 Erwin had Levi break away from his squad and it is really upsetting to know that at least one of them might be alive if they had his guidance. In this episode Levi prevented Mikasa from making the mistake that Petra did (going for the neck too early). Its really just a possibilty but still I couldn't handle the emotion in this episode. They're shouldering a heavy burden now, much likely worse than before and Eren will never forgive himself for what happened.

The tossing of the bodies was depressing enough. But then Petra's dad really made my heart sink.
The anime only content didn't take away from the story.
Gosh, so much feels this episode T^T!!!
Beautiful piano at the end of the episode,btw.

That was a roller coaster of feels for me, first when Levi and Mikasa double-teamed FT I was pumped. Then it showed Levi by Petra and all of the dead bodies, I was on the brink of tears. When Petra's body tumbled out of the wagon I cried briefly.
Nice use of omake-pfadlib, and the OST is still pleasant in the background.
I'm just dreading how I think they're going to end this.

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


All I gotta say to this is that this reminded me of that scene in Titanic where life boats were launched even when there were people still waiting to board the lifeboats and were sacrificed...

They were thrown off so the horses could increase their speed, with the weight gone.

Most of the episode was filler, but it was great original content.
I felt like it actually added a little extra something that the manga missed.

FUUUU my feels

why have people die when they are getting killed, why cant we even have a proper burial? i understand that they needed to outrun the titans, but why, shingeki no kyojin, why are you doing this to us T-T
ninjas cutting onions everywhere


PS.: as someone who read the manga, i have to say that this filler is actually amazing (compared with some fillers from other... animes... *cough cough*)

Wow I really liked the expansion of the story in the anime, it makes it even more heartbreaking how they came back empty handed. Not even that, but how the survivors feel about how the others die, and once again ponder how long will they live, especially because the characters we see are the ones who went on their first mission as parting of the scouting legion. I cried in a lot of the scenes in this episode, something I haven't done while reading the manga. The anime original scenes were great and full of emotion, and we get to see what happened after they failed. I think the whole part with the parents/family of Levi's team, when they were talking about the them coming back, that was incredibly heartbreaking, but the worst was probably when Petra's father was talking to Levi about Petra...Also, it kind of sucks that the two soldiers, Dieter and ? wanted to get back Ivan's body back but it kind of ended up their fault that the other bodies were sacrificed, and one of them even died :(

This was such a sad ep.
Man, I feel bad for the Survey Cops for being blamed like that..

The whole thing involving the little boy resembling Eren was sad af, I felt the same as him in that moment.. A really heartbreaking moment :/

Seems like Armin is pissed in the PV xD.


Blamed is the wrong word here. They were criticized for failing their mission. They've had 57 ventures outside the walls so there must've been a lot of failed objectives. You hear the people going on about how their taxes go towards the army, much like in real life, there would obviously be some bitterness thrown towards them each time they return failing their mission. Not to mention the amount of casualties and soldiers KIA

Anyways, who's the chick with the wavy hair in the preview? Don't think I've seen her before. Going by that preview, Armin asks for Annie's help with a "sensitive" mission. Opportunity for confrontation perhaps? Wouldn't surprise me if he suspected her already

Good stuff from Levi against the female titan in the beginning, but the 2nd half of the episode was just brutal emotionally especially w/ Petra's father. Wonder how things are going to turn out w/ Eren being taken away.

Ah man, this episode was good. I've been waiting since the show started for Levi showing off how skilled, brutal and cold he can be, and this episode showed us that. He is no normal human that shows feeling outside of his body, but man one day it might take a toll on him. Seeing him brutally tearing up the Female Titan shows how skilled he is compared to the other members in his squad, he single handily took it down with some distraction help from Mikasa, though her being reckless made him take an injury for her protection. Damn it.

There was a lot of fillers in this episode, its clearly they are trying to drag it out to that "point" in the arc where the arc end and the 3rd arc starts. There will most likely be other fillers in the upcoming episodes, but they will most likely be fillers like shown in this episode. For this episode, it was full of feels and brutal, when they have to throw off the bodies to take up speed, and they show Petra's body was one of them, I was shocked to see that the writers would go this hard on the people loved her since she appeared on the show and towards Levi who just had to look at it fall down at the Titan's feet, if only he wasn't injured...

They also showed the families of the others in the Levi squad, that was a nice and sad touch by the writers to do, and when they showed Petra's father, another kick of feels get thrown at you. God damn it.

Some good flashbacks with Eren and how he feels being the one defeated going the long walk back to the capital where he will be handed over...

Overall a good episode with some brutal feeling of fillers. Can't wait to see how they wrap up this season of SnK!

Was Levi in love with Petra? I don't know but this is the feeling I got but again, he never treated her different than the others. It could be that she was special to him because she was in his squad?

What a depressing episode... :'( Not because the episode is "bad", but mainly because of the emotions it carried throughout the return inside the walls. Those family members waiting for their loved ones have no idea that they will never return... ;_; And the expedition being another failure is just heartbreaking for all the soldiers.. *bites my lip*

Holy Shit @ Levi. I knew he was good but that was amazing. Mikasa... I am dissapoint. That part when Petra's body was thrown and her dad freaking messed me up. All those people insulting and they're all asking Erwin if it was all worth it when the answer truly was that it wasn't worth it at all. I really hope it doesn't keep a slow pace for the rest of the episodes though. Kinda felt like it dragged on but good episode nonetheless. I'm wondering why the Female Titan was crying though, did she really need Eren that much or maybe it's something more.

Finally, back on my PC, a chance to write a proper review/opinion on the episode:

Fillers. Done. Right. Another plus point for SnK.


The first part of the episode showed that even Mikasa has weakpoints, while emphasizing the fact that Levi is worth at least 100 soldiers.


It's nice to hear the opinions of almost each individual members of the 104th Trainees, more character development. Jean & Armin are like buddies now. Same could be said for Sasha and Connie.


Death strikes, no one could shield their hearts. They could only hide their emotions.

I feel sorry for the Levi Squad's members' family, especially Eldo and Petra. I connect with Eldo because he's got a beautiful wife waiting for him at home, something I wish to have when I become an adult, but he is dead, and I feel sorry for her. She seemed prepared mentally though. Petra also, I pity her, she should have lived, manga and anime-wise.

And fuck Dieter, your name sounds stupid. And its because of your choice, you lost your friend, your buddy's body AND the bodies of dead soldiers, including Petra's.

A moment of silent for Levi Heichou.

Eren's still bothered by the fact that he couldn't save anyone I see. Evidence to this is when he asked Mikasa if she had saved him again. I'm pretty sure if she said Levi, he'd still feel the same. Mikasa was sweet, staying by him all that.


It was painful, seeing Petra's father talking to Levi about her marriage. Maybe its because I want to have a daughter also, I connected with the dad? (Clannad: After Story and personal desire to have a daughter.)


The most painful part: Little kids admiring Eren and Mikasa, and the whole Survey Corps. Eren saw himself and Mikasa in those kids. Poor the little girl, she had a "huh" face while the boy keeps praising the guys. Perfect fit.


Seeing the 104th Trainees' regretting moment was a nice touch.


Also, Eren & Mikasa shed tears while holding hands.


One of the best and most emotional episode in this season IMO.

5/5

With this episode, I can proudly say that no Anime, except Clannad: After Story (my desire for a daughter), Grave of the Fireflies (my sister complex), Steins;Gate (one of the greatest anime), can make me cry. Not Anohana, not 5 centimeter per second, not Air, not Kanon, not Angel Beats,... e.t.c

Levi > Mikasa.

This episode give me so much feel.

They just have to add more by dumping Petra's body so that they can move faster.

Who knows how Levi really feel. He act base on logic. Even if its his friends that died, he can't give them special exception.
I love her.

I have the same sort of haircut, but I style it better. It is a short back and sides, its a pretty simple cut. Also I never noticed Levi had blue eyes until this episode.

I'm kind of disappointed about everyones reaction here, it's just as if the sadness in that episode totally obliterated the amazing performance Levi gave us at the beginning. It may have been short, but holy fucking damn is he good, and that music to go with it was just perfect ! You could feel that shit was really going down when Levi went all in, an epic moment that seems to have been overlapped by the following sorrow in everyones mind, such a pity.

I doubt you'll be surprised then. Well, actually, you probably will be. The ending to this is going to be crazy whether they aim for a canon cliffhanger or not.

Mikasa is badass, but in this episode, it's been proven again that Levi is more badass! He freakin' slashed the Female Titan until she couldn't do anything else but sit down and cry. I wonder why she cried though.

Levi Squad members' families waiting for them. Dead people being tossed out of the cart like Petra. Petra and her dad. Levi giving away Petra's badge to some guy who lost all his friends. All these make me sad.

Dat OST. This is such a sad episode. It made me weep.
Hopefully, the next episode can lighten us up.
