Great episode. Mikasa was badass this episode. Eren wanna kill someone again, surprise mofo. Can't wait for the final episode next week, but i'm confident for a new season. I wonder if Eren is gonna get a powerup of some sort in his last fight because he obviously can't win against Annie by normal means. Maybe they can discuss their problems over a cup of tea..

Such a good element to add into the episode with Eren's failed attempts at transforming, he went through hell just to get into the fight, loved it O_o

A lot of the animation was great this episode and I liked seeing more of certain characters. But I agree with several posters here about how OOC some characters were acting and that ruined it for me.

Like Eren... was impaled on a stick. The unstable debris around him could've come down at any second and crushed and killed him and the characters only cared about that very real possibility a little. Definitely not enough given how much significance they usually place on him and how important he is to their plans. Why would Annie let herself be drawn away by Armin? She knows where Eren is. She should've tried to grab him and run.

Some weirdass character development for Eren. All of a sudden he has issues with him becoming a monster. Wasn't that resolved during the last arc? It hasn't been an issue in the manga since Trost. And the amount of hesitance Eren showed when faced with his own ideals about fighting to survive makes him a gigantic hypocrite and a lot weaker than in the manga. Also he doesn't want to annihilate Annie. A key difference between their relationship and Eren's relationship with everyone else who kills/fucks people over is that he was open to being empathetic about her reasons. imo He doesn't have the same motivations when it comes to fighting Annie as most other titans.

They also cut out the wall cult scene which set the tone for a huge reveal. Weird.

I hope the preview isn't implying that Eren goes out of control again. "Onward to destroy this entire world." etc.

What do you mean?

he held his own whilst fighting her alone (this time the whole of the Scouting Legion are with him)
he only lost to her because he was shocked when he recognized her fighting style, before that whilst he wasn't winning, he had the female titan backpedaling.

That was fucking amazing! The OST amplifies the intensity so much, I had goosebumps the whole time. Seeing Eren constantly biting himself and struggling to transform was quite painful and disturbing to watch. Mikasa was really badass especially with those serious-looking eyes. So back then, Annie in her titan form kicked Eren titan's head off, DAMN! I really like Jean's character, he has matured so much since the beginning. Hanji really surprised me this episode. She can be really intimidating at times! Annie was still able to break free from the trap. The scene with Eren transforming into a titan was done AMAZINGLY WELL - His facial expressions and all that blood. Just wow! Dat fucking punch! Finale is going to be AWESOME!
5/5

As a manga reader, I don't know what to say.

Oh right: some of the changes I didn't like too much, but overall, nicely done. Hanji got in a good shot at being creepy, at that.
Annie just gets more epic, whether good or bad.
Anticipating the next and last.

Gonna have to start calling Eren "Princess Pinch" from now on. His sucking is getting a little old, but hopefully in the future he will suck less.

Good episode though.

Come on?
Eren saves everybody at Trost
Closes the breach at Trost
Has more titan kills than any other trainee
Has saved Mikasa more times than she has saved him, yet everybody thinks she is a badass? (she is, but so is Eren)

I mean the guy just got told the girl who taught him to fight and was a close friend had murdered his friends and comrades and betrayed him. He then has tonnes of debris dropped on him. So of course he is going to take a little while to get into fighting shape, but when he did...


The only trainees better than him are RBA and Mikasa so he's pretty good for a human.
I only wish they had given Eren more time to process all this. I thought he believed them or what his eyes saw till Annie transformed in front of him.

MikasaxEren said:

I think it could be her jealousy as well, notice what she say's to Annie.
"I won't let you have Eren"
Have? Oh dear Mikasa is jealous. That and the look on her face and eyes when she asks him about "certain feelings" involving Annie.
Another Mikaere moment as well when Eren pulls them close to transform, Armin doesn't bat and eyelid yet Mikasa gets all flustered... I wonder why?


Oh man, I didn't catch the Mikaere moment till you mentioned it XD

If anyone now argues that Mikasa dosen't have feelings for Eren, I'll much them watch that scene XD
Its in Ep24, right between transition from the cannon/arm thing and Eren pulling them close.

2/5

Worst episode since the end of the drawn-out Trost saga, for me. I could see how off the art was during the animation so much that it completely detracted from what I was watching. My eyes never picked up on art issues during 3DMG before. Minimal detail. Expected jaw-dropping animation smex after reading the first few comments... and I ended up just watching a (mostly) non-fluid sequence of shots requiring a ton of BD touch-ups. Not good.

The worst part of the ep wasn't art/animation, though--it was the blatant stupidity of the action itself. I honestly can't remember exactly how the manga went, but I'm pretty sure Eren transformed after the Mikasa bit (vaguely recall the 'run both ways' plan). The entire scouting legion (bar Erwin, Levi & Jean) were lying in wait - we even saw the non-disguised ones waiting on rooftop - but it was all up to Armin and Mikasa?... And there was this bit where Jean arrived and Armin RAN BY Annie's foot, after being a distance away from her in the shot prior; Annie not moving to squish him. Time-wasting action bullshit that lead nowhere and looked bad. Had filler written all over it.

I know Shingeki has pacing issues. I knew only one chapter would be adapted. I knew Eren wouldn't transform until the end for a cliffhanger. But even knowing all that and liking the series, it got to me. The episode was like a mix of everything bad about the show: talking about what we already know; awful art consistency; nothing happening in an ep (Eren transformed... that's it). And the fact it's gonna end next ep with little more than another single chapter unless the ep is extended for the cinema makes it all but certain that it's gonna end with a whimper. Ep21 was the high-point of the show and it's been on its way down ever since.

...positives? Mikasa's face when she was questioning Eren about his lack of passion when duty calls. The closest she's got to yandere. Eren deffo needs one of those JP school girls bringing him a bento, if only to see how Mikasa reacts/whether she kills the other girl, herself, Eren or all three.

Dat transformation.

In that flashback, the room was so empty because... Levi's Squad... (T_T)

Titan Annie vs Mikasa!

Oh Nile, you have no idea what's happening. Let Erwin tell you.

Dat Hanji.

So much blood. There was Eren biting his hand. There was Eren being crushed. There was Eren being pierce through.
In the end, there was Eren. Titan Eren to be exact.

Titan Fight Rematch! I wonder how they'll end this.
I’m always searching for something, for someone. This feeling has possessed me I think, from that day… That day when the stars came falling.

OHHH MY GOD. OH MY GOD. I love this show so damn much. I can't believe that there is just one episode left (of this season anyway).

Normally, I find action really boring. But SnK really knows how to get me pumped and this episode was intense. The soundtrack really helped with that, as well as those wonderfully animated scenes of everyone using their 3-D Maneuver Gear.

Everyone's expressions were also intense in this episode. Mikasa's eyes were terrifying.

I just love these characters so much. All of them. I wish I could write all that I wanted to about them, but if I did that, I would be here all night.

Anyway, I am so looking forward to the next episode. The last episode. As well as that cliffhanger ending that I know we are going to have.

Yuuussss they played my favorite song on the OST during the Female Titan transformation scene in the very beginning.Then Bauklotze on Eren's transformation.

That scene with him biting his hand repeatedly was nasty lol. I was cringing when he was getting out from being trapped in the rubble.

TITAN FIGHT PART TWO NEXT EPISODE.
Kind of unbelievable that there's only one episode left though :(



"Attack on Titans" was playing when he transformed, and it's also my favorite soundtrack!!

Had to replay that beginning twice,cause it was so damn exciting.

Eren can't transform.So he continually bites his hand unable to transform.
(Yuki Kaji did a good job when Eren was biting himself,you could really feel the pain.)

Annie got captured again.Hange is a freak,once she started talking about how she was going to devour Annie XD.Annie escapes.

Eren finally transforms.This looks painful as fuck.

The animation this episode was just absolutely phenomenal.The ost was intense as fuck too,especially when Eren transformed.

If this episode was this fucking amazing can't even imagine how intense episode 25 is going to be.Next episode Eren vs Annie round two.

One episode left,damn don't know what to do now that it's finally reaching it's end.I'm guessing we'll get a second season 2 years from now to build anticipation and so they can cash in on the manga sale the most they can.

That makes me think, does Levi have an odd fascination with bowel movements?

I think the Hanji filler made this episode 10x cooler

Anyway, Great episode! Damn now I see where they pooled all their budget...

For this episode however, they filled in with some anime-original content, like some action scenes of the army taking on Annie, Eren seeing Jean and being covered by debris, and even Hanji leading a group with capturing her with improvised hooks. I could see that as a means of prolonging the episode. Still, it was great considering how much they invested on the action scenes alone, and the enjoyment factor for me never waned in the slightest.

That scene with Eren biting his way to transform was very painful to see, not to mention being impaled and fight his way through that stake that struck him through his chest. His justification was logical however, as he trusts his comrades more than anything else. However, now with this new crisis in sight, he must transform or its the end for humanity.

Whew, gotta wait for another week. The last week of SnK!!!

I dont like the way they presented eren's transformation in this, I mean its like he seems so weak in the anime that they have to make him half dead and impaled on a piece of wood to transform,
The episode was fucking A tho...
At least eren gets way stronger in the manga....cuz in the anime he seems the weakest.....

and then manga readers will rage because it's not faithful to the manga, not realizing this will essentially be another author's take on the story rather than a adaption. I almost want it to happen, with how elitist so many of them seem, just to see the rage.

Hanji here was just.

On to my point, a lot the changes surprised me, such as Eren getting stomped as such, but hey, I liked it. I miss his "Yeah...it sure is", but I still liked the ep.
Had good tension...animation...the OST 'Attack on Titan' got to play...and I love that one.
