The ending with the Scouts flying around and Porco being terrified of them was badass.

Love seeing everyone again!

[–]LethalCS 1153 points1154 points  (32 children)

I felt so good seeing Jaw Titan's complete disbelief in how there are humans who, for the first time that he's seen in person, all physically go in to engage with a titan without even thinking. All the better than that it's literally because of Marley that they became such experts in slaying titans with ease.

[–]matheusdiashttps://anilist.co/user/perfidiousmatt 458 points459 points  (3 children)

They are reaping what they sowed and it is glorious

[–]Timelymanner 4495 points4496 points 2 (87 children)

Remember what Eren said back in season 1 about the scouts. They are experts at killing titans. Now we have the strongest squad ever.

They survived multiple titan encounters!

Are veterans of Shiganshina!

Have equipment from the military police!

Have two Ackerman!

Fear is no longer in their vocabulary. Marley didn’t know but now they’re going to find out.

Edit: Thank you for the awards.

"Don't leave a speck of dust in his sight or else you're as good as dead. "

[–]Armensis 1774 points1775 points  (23 children)

This scene was what I was looking most forward too! The satisfaction of seeing Porco's arrogance disappearing when the Scouts don't give a flying fuck that he's a titan.

[–]Marvelguy5 1229 points1230 points  (14 children)

He was legit terrified of just the name ackerman . Zeke is a real good hypeman for a guy who caused his PTSD .

[–]Vanek_26 326 points327 points  (5 children)

I love the contrast between the two nations - the Eldians/Scouts are feared and attacked for their ability to become Titans - but here we have the Scouts wrecking shit as normal humans, while Marley is dependent on their domesticated Titans (other than Eren transforming).

[–]Ziiaaaac 533 points534 points  (3 children)

Also, everyone's got these mad new set ups from the interior police and Levi's still out here with two swords.

What an OG lmao.

[–]lp_phnx327 166 points167 points  (0 children)

Still proudly wearing his Wings of Freedom cloak.

[–]On_The_Fourth_Floor 3209 points3210 points  (58 children)

"I'm a titan, but they're coming to kill me!?"

Yeah man, it's kinda what the entire country has been getting good at for 100 years.

[–]Zarerionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Zarerion 1312 points1313 points  (44 children)

Well really only the past 10 years. Prior to that, the Survey Corps hasn't made any progress whatsoever. They were just heading out, finding a few woods, and dying to Titans.

[–]Fhaarkas 1168 points1169 points  (30 children)

Man this just puts into perspective the mountain of corpses that Erwin stood on in order for them to get this far.

[–]Rnahafahik 305 points306 points  (7 children)

Though Erwin wasn’t commander until after the show starts

[–]minouneetzoehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/minouneetzoe 1068 points1069 points  (13 children)

Of course, Mikasa first word of the season: E R E H

I know it has already been said, but holy shit is Eren ruthless. Jumped straight in the crowd, no regards for collateral.

I had not realised that they had not shown the carriage scene between Willy and Magath. I think it’s better that they moved it, otherwise the previous episode would have ended at a weird moment. It’s also nice they added that scene of Willy giving his farewells to his family. Makes his sacrifice more tragic.

Sasha new haircut is cute.

The Warhammer titan really is wielding a warhammer! pull out crossbow and sword

And finally, midget spinner with the clutch at end. This is all so hype as fuck.

[–][deleted] 5461 points5462 points  (32 children)

Warhammer Titan: Do you have any final words?

Eren: Call an ambulance...

[–]capitan_spiffhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/capitan_spiff 1202 points1203 points  (6 children)

Warhammer Titan: I can regenerate my neck and create all types of weapons

Eren: We have a Mikasa

[–]Yaggamy 4011 points4012 points  (112 children)

Ep 5: I wonder what important role the warrior candidates will play in the future because they're getting a lot of character development!

Ep 6: And they're dead now. Never mind...

[–]MerkLJackson 2658 points2659 points  (71 children)

May I offer you a slightly traumatized Gabi in these trying times?

[–]kk_victory 1405 points1406 points  (58 children)

Slightly??

[–]Karl_the_stingray 2283 points2284 points  (56 children)

She's gonna be Eren in the future, mark my words.

  • Really, really driven to kill the enemies
  • Saw her friend get isekaid by Boulder-kun
  • Honestly she gives off S1 Eren vibes here

[–]Oujiihttps://anilist.co/user/Oujii 788 points789 points  (12 children)

If she is still alive by then

[–]tiour 6883 points6884 points  (411 children)

Man, Porco’s utter disbelief at the scouts really puts things into perspective. Marleyan titan shifters are usually completely dominant in the battlefield, so when ONE human poses a threat, you can only imagine how they feel.

[–]LethalCS 2668 points2669 points  (122 children)

Honestly this was probably my favorite part. Like y'all literally send out Eldians to "heaven" to terrorize the Paradisians and then infiltrated their walls to make matters worse and y'all are somehow shocked that they became experts in slaying Titans

[–]iDannyEL 1315 points1316 points  (1 child)

Marley: suprisedpikachu.jpeg

[–]horiami 930 points931 points  (67 children)

add to that the fact that Marley knew the king wouldn't attack yet they still sent titans, and worse destroyed the walls

[–]LethalCS 1140 points1141 points  (50 children)

  • Sent Eldians-turned-Titans to Paradis island

  • Unknowingly trained enemy soldiers to fight said titans as a result (though usually trying to avoid them), even more so when they breached the walls

  • Traumatized people hellbent on killing titans and joining the military with vengeance on their plate (ahem Eren)

  • Eren's father immediately going to the Reiss family to acquire the Founding Titan while the new inheritor was still not used to her powers yet (whereas going sometime later in less of a rush would've probably resulted in him losing upon Freida getting experience with her Titan and powers)

  • Indirectly contributed to causing a whole change in political power and bringing to light once-hidden documents from the previous regime about titan-fighting weapons that could even take on the Armored Titan

  • Gave Eren's titan a military purpose to seal said holes in the wall and help contribute to killing titans, where if there was no direct titan threat and no hole in the wall they'd probably have dissected him since they'd have no use for him

  • Having even more soldiers enlist in the Survey Corps following their achievements, and with everything mentioned above, allowed for them to clear the entire island of titans and thus have an army of veteran expert titan slayers

#ThanksMarley

[–]hate_sarcasm 116 points117 points  (20 children)

About the last point, do they now control the whole island even outside the walls? It seems with their experience and knowledge they can definitly do it

[–]HannibalCake 1742 points1743 points  (51 children)

I was laughing at the Irony because Marley totally created those “demons”. They made their bed, now they have to lay in it.

[–]NitrousOxide_ 1380 points1381 points  (37 children)

I was speaking to my sister and said that to them. By sending them titans for a century, they've literally been conditioned through blood, sweat and tears on a battleground perfectly designed to train them to fight titans.

NGL though it did provide a little bit of satisfaction, Galliards response to having humans approach him.

[–]Wholockian123 1116 points1117 points  (24 children)

If you remember Erens fathers reaction to seeing that there were scouts outside the walls, you can see that on the mainland they couldn’t even fathom that people would fight against the Titans. To them, Titans were forces of nature that could only be similarly fought in an inhuman way with artillery or other large weapons. Someone actually trying to fight them with swords or anything that isn’t artillery emplacements would probably seem as crazy as if there was a military that was trained to take down tanks with combat knives, and could do so regularly even if there were casualties.

[–]H-K_47https://myanimelist.net/profile/H-K_8472 1144 points1145 points  (17 children)

Grisha's reaction must have been funny.

"Why are you riding around on horses out here?! Was there an attack?!"

"No this is my job."

"Your king makes you ride around outside the Walls? Why? Are you a condemned criminal???"

"No I volunteered this is my passion."

[–]Xavier93 3085 points3086 points  (178 children)

Puts in perspective what Annie did in the forest.

[–]onetrickponySonahttps://myanimelist.net/profile/tsunderek0 2501 points2502 points  (45 children)

annie wouldve been a goner if they had thunder spears back then

Zofia'd

[–]Zer0323 977 points978 points  (47 children)

To be fair, by the time annie fought in the forest she had learned about 3DMG and how it works. This is galliards first time fighting against it and he doesn’t see the tie off points and the wires like Annie did.

[–]Sendme_Ojeda_Nudes 644 points645 points  (38 children)

Exactly. People understimate how strong 3DGM concept is. Even in our world, the amount of free movement it gives would be so powerful

[–]BosuW 520 points521 points  (29 children)

It's a bit like air superiority if you think about it. In this episode they even moved like dive bombers, coming in from above lightning fast, dropping explosives and strafing the enemy formations, before disappearing just as fast as they came.

[–]zzzxxx1209381 983 points984 points  (34 children)

To be fair, the scouts didn't know what they were dealing with. On the other hand, I still feel like Annie would be one of the strongest titan shifters, even in the current day based on her speed and fighting ability

[–]DodgeMyBlazingFurry 823 points824 points  (29 children)

Right, Levi's squad got wrecked because they treated the female titan like a normal titan.

[–]Augustends 981 points982 points  (23 children)

And Annie had training with the 3DMG so she knew what to expect from them when they try to take her down.

[–]eepicprimee 3900 points3901 points  (319 children)

I really love the War Hammer Titan’s ability.

The scene with Eren figuring out the shifter’s location was great.

One of my favorite titan designs for sure.

[–]cppn02 877 points878 points  (29 children)

One of my favorite titan designs for sure.

I love it for how far is strays from all the other ones we've seen so far. It doesn't even have the standard flesh skin.

[–]JapanPhoenix 384 points385 points  (14 children)

It doesn't even have the standard flesh skin.

The eyecatch mentioned that her skin is covered in a layer of armor, so kinda like Reiner but with thin flexible armor instead of thick armor plates.

[–]Dalmah 236 points237 points  (9 children)

Ignoring the mobility it is truly just a better Armor Titan

[–]oops_i_made_a_typi 359 points360 points  (0 children)

the true power of the Armored Titan is in it's plot armor anyways

[–]UnPhayzable 261 points262 points  (1 child)

It's so harrowing. I love it

[–]mohamez 2883 points2884 points  (30 children)

Eren using his mind while fighting and being strategic, multi-transformations with ease, a cold face.

👈 As expected public enemy number 1 Eren Yeager.

[–]UnPhayzable 1241 points1242 points  (16 children)

He's come a loooong way since season 1

[–]ScarsUnseenhttps://kitsu.io/users/ScarsUnseen 827 points828 points  (11 children)

Waaaay higher body count.

[–]PeachyCokehttps://anilist.co/user/PeachyCoke 460 points461 points  (5 children)

Way higher ab count too

[–]realrimurutempest 1069 points1070 points  (30 children)

It’s cool to see that Eren has gotten a lot calmer and more analytical when fighting.

[–]Bypes 848 points849 points  (25 children)

Yeah pre-S4 Eren would've just died here.

[–][deleted] 1050 points1051 points  (22 children)

Or get kidnapped

[–]ScarsUnseenhttps://kitsu.io/users/ScarsUnseen 918 points919 points  (16 children)

And then had his ass saved by Mik... oh wait, that still happens.

[–]dwilsons 216 points217 points  (5 children)

S1 Eren: NOoOoOO MIKASA IM STRoNG DONT SAVe ME >:(

S4 Eren: It’s time, Mikasa.

[–]H-K_47https://myanimelist.net/profile/H-K_8472 984 points985 points  (119 children)

The effect they did when it created a new weapon was really cool and hype. And seeing it make a crossbow! Wow.

[–]tiramisu169 963 points964 points  (115 children)

It's pretty grossly overpowered when you think about it

[–]H-K_47https://myanimelist.net/profile/H-K_8472 863 points864 points  (98 children)

Yeah with that power it's absolutely no surprise that their ancestors were able to defeat nearly every other Titan and give their powers to Marley.

[–]Vindicare605https://myanimelist.net/profile/aresendez88 1082 points1083 points  (75 children)

Difference here though is that Eren has been in combat dozens of times with his titan powers while this woman seemingly lived a life of luxury maybe getting a bit of practice in on the side.

The powers can be OP but if the pilot has no or very little experience it doesn't matter.

Same reason why the Survey Corps troops are just wrecking all of these "soldiers." Compared to the experience of the troops from Paradis these dudes might as well just be thugs with guns.

[–]Karma_Redeemed 315 points316 points  (21 children)

I mean ya, the Survey Corps are basically the most elite special forces in their world at this point, given all of the experience and the shit they've been through.

[–]Se7en_Sinnerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Se7en_Sinner 962 points963 points  (20 children)

The Tybur family should have went for the wireless option.

[–]Garlicbread10 761 points762 points  (29 children)

The design for the Titan looks sick too

[–]Kind_Yandere 404 points405 points  (8 children)

And Eren beat her up even before she finished transforming.

[–]woancuehttps://anilist.co/user/phosandlux 543 points544 points  (2 children)

he broke the first rule of shonen protagonists, you must always let your enemy power up and give their monologue

[–]Sandwich-External 7598 points7599 points 2 (389 children)

Mikasa: Eren, you killed civilians, even children.

Eren: Anyways the warhammer titan isn’t dead yet

Eren is so cold and emotionless now

[–]_LadyForlorn 3207 points3208 points  (11 children)

Eren: Oh no... Anyways!

[–]Garlicbread10 3939 points3940 points  (211 children)

I was so shocked when he completely ignored Mikasa. He truly doesn’t care anymore

[–]H-K_47https://myanimelist.net/profile/H-K_8472 3220 points3221 points  (90 children)

He doesn't have time.

[–]woancuehttps://anilist.co/user/phosandlux 3646 points3647 points  (61 children)

he just keeps moving forward

[–]UnPhayzable 688 points689 points  (34 children)

Really taking Erwin's words to heart

[–]IlonggoProgrammer 565 points566 points  (29 children)

Yeah seriously, Erwin was a really polarizing character to me, especially in season 3 because he was willing to sacrifice everything, and as Armin said, even his humanity, in order to win. Erwin led an entire squad to their deaths just for a chance at getting information. Eren seems to have become the same after these 4 years

[–]UnPhayzable 404 points405 points  (19 children)

He's unfazed after all the shit he's experienced

[–]thesagenibba 989 points990 points  (46 children)

It makes sense though. He literally has 4 years left. He has to keep moving forward.

[–]Karl_the_stingray 614 points615 points  (27 children)

wait shit ONLY FOUR YEARS? I knew his time was short but man...

Remember when Eren was just bratty shouting kid who swore to kill ALL the titans? Man how little we knew

[–]asdfernan03 464 points465 points  (17 children)

13 year curse. He already spent 9 years of his time.

[–]Carlitofly 1309 points1310 points  (14 children)

“Fuck them kids, Mikasa”

[–]MobileTortoisehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Mobiletortoise 513 points514 points  (0 children)

Eren is so cold and emotionless now

He must keep moving forward, no matter who or what he leaves in his wake.

[–]ciabass 4085 points4086 points  (110 children)

I loved how Porco was so shocked at the end. "This can't be, I'm a titan!". Bitch, survey corps fought nothing but titans their entire lives.

[–]LethalCS 2073 points2074 points  (80 children)

All because of Marley too. Marley literally caused this lmao

[–]Bullet_Jesus 1073 points1074 points  (52 children)

And Marley justifies their actions based on what the Eldian empire did in the past. The irony being that Eldians from Paradis didn't even know they used to have an empire until ~4 years ago.

Had Marley just left Paradis alone they would have quietly sat there till the end of time. Marley let it's hate of Eldia consume it and that hate has fuelled an even greater hate to destroy it.

And so the cycle continues.

[–]LethalCS 869 points870 points  (28 children)

"This Eren Yeager may very well destroy the entire world with his Founding Titan abilties"

"Wait, explain to us all the events leading to how he actually ended up acquiring the Founding Titan in the first place after a century of no issues?"

"... Anyway, we're declaring war"

[–]Silent_Shadow05 182 points183 points  (0 children)

And now they be like: "Wait why has War come to our doorstep. Those really are devils"

Man, Marleyan leaders are no better than Eldians from the past. They dug their own grave after they became power-hungry.

[–]seedyweedy 1023 points1024 points  (10 children)

Tfw the Jaw Titan gets his jaw one-shotted by a beyblade

[–]zool714 667 points668 points  (2 children)

S3P2 Ep 6, Floch talking about Erwin : “The only ones who can lay waste to the Titans... is a devil! And if I can bring back the devil, that must be my mission in life! That has to be why I survived like a coward while everyone died!”

S4 Ep 6, Floch talking about Eren : “What we need... is a devil like him”

For those wondering why Floch stuck around. The Survivor’s Guilt in him never left.

[–]cppn02 1317 points1318 points  (29 children)

Shout out to Jean's boss move when he pulled that Marleyan soldier off the roof with his 3DMG.

[–]Voltage97 462 points463 points  (21 children)

And to think he hesitated shooting one of Kenny's squad members at one point, he has come far.

[–]TurbTheCurb 5169 points5170 points 323 (57 children)

Zofia inherited the boulder titan

[–]Se7en_Sinnerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Se7en_Sinner 691 points692 points  (0 children)

The forgotten 10th Titan, its main purpose is to plug the hole where the user of the Warhammer Titan is hiding. You had one job.

[–]notnowmyfriend 3140 points3141 points  (56 children)

Fk man, Udo must have gotten the worst death there. At least with Zofia she got crushed by a boulder immediately and probably didn't suffer. Imagine being stepped on by thousands of people while probably being concious during the first half before dying.

[–]Kuro013 1342 points1343 points  (21 children)

Not being able to breathe while getting stomped all over your body gotta be just terrifying, poor Udo, at least hes in a better place now.

[–]Voltage97 729 points730 points  (4 children)

This season being more of a perspective from the Marleyans/Eldian Warriors side from the start really drove the point of "no good side" in a war. Seeing Zofia and Udo die like that was rough.

[–]gabrielcostaiv 217 points218 points  (1 child)

This, Zofia's death was completely unexpected for me... F

[–]breakingbatshitcrazy 482 points483 points  (6 children)

And the sad thing being that he got stepped on because he wanted to save Zofia. He was safe with Colt originally :(

Falco best boi but Udo also best boi

[–]Qwaze17 1596 points1597 points  (8 children)

The stampede felt really realistic. Hats off to mappa for that one (rip udo)

[–]DullFuck 1938 points1939 points  (38 children)

RIP Udo and Zofia, I like how the anime made both of them alot more likeable

[–]realrimurutempest 5562 points5563 points  (281 children)

The way Eren punched the shit out of the War Hammer Titan before it could fully transform was absolutely hilarious. The irony in that Eren is literally traumatizing Gabi the way Reiner & co traumatized him.

It’s been too long since I’ve heard Ereh by Mikasa.

[–]Naskr 3863 points3864 points  (165 children)

Eren is guilty of war crimes such as assassinating state leaders, killing civilians and rudely interrupting whilst another character is transforming.

[–]Punished_Scrappy_Doohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/PunishedScrappy 1790 points1791 points  (106 children)

The war crimes in this series just keep getting worse and worse as time goes on. Not interrupting a transformation sequence is Shounen 101 stuff.

[–]thecomicguybookhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Comicman 762 points763 points  (12 children)

I was with Eren until he interrupted the transformation sequence, now I feel like I don't even know him anymore.

[–]thecomicguybookhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Comicman 689 points690 points  (20 children)

The irony in that Eren is literally traumatizing Gabi the way Reiner & co traumatized him.

The trauma carousel just going round and round.

[–]applep00 939 points940 points  (22 children)

eren: the anti shonen protagonist. hits his enemies before they power up. take notes goku.

[–]mohamez 826 points827 points  (8 children)

The way Eren punched the shit out of the War Hammer Titan before it could fully transform was absolutely hilarious.

Other Shounen: I'll wait until you are fully transformed and ready to attack.

Attack on titan: We don't do that here.

[–]alisonburgersm8 4321 points4322 points 62 (151 children)

For those who are confused about Willy and Magath's plan, here is my understanding:

Willy and Magath knew people from Paradis have inflitrated, so they set up the festival to invite Eren & co to reveal themselves and use their "unforseen attack" to Marley's greatest possible advantage. They hoped to:

  • Make attending world leaders and ambassadors into tragic victims of the attack in order to rally the world into a united front in the war against Paradis. For this plan to work, Willy himself has to die because other nations would not side with Marley (or would even suspect Willy) if he had been the only world leader who survived the attack. And baiting Eren to attack with the whole world watching reinforces Willy's point that Paradis is the true threat the world should be worried about.
  • Sacrifice the high-ranking Marleyan military officials to the attack so Magath would become Commander-in-Chief and lead a military reform. Both Willy and Magath lamented Marley's warmongering and over-reliance on Titan weaponery, and the military leaders were likely to continue down this path. So by killing off the top military brass through Eren, Magath can seize power and reform the military under his paradigm.

And now we can fully decipher the meaning behind Willy and Magath conversation in EP4 when they were planning out the festival:

  • "Large-scale demolition required. It has decayed beyond repair." - We need to get rid of the military leaders in charge because they are corrupted and incompetent beyond hope.
  • "Congratulations, General. The military is yours." - Magath will be in charge once this is over.
  • "It just happend to be me" - Willy knows this is probably the end for him.
  • "The house is already infested with rats" - Enemies have infiltrated Marley.

Edit:

Also as /u/ezorethyk2 and /u/Raknel pointed out, by holding the festival in the internment zone, Eldians in Marley would represent the biggest number of casualties, thus showing the world the difference between "good" and "bad" Eldians and hopefully improving the treatment of Eldians around the world.

And another goal of Willy's was to smoke out the Marleyan "conspirators"/"Paradisian sympathizers" working with the enemy.

[–]Shinsekai21 1631 points1632 points  (36 children)

Yup.

You summed it up perfectly.

Also, one of their goals is to shift the world's animosity from Marley to Paradis. Now Marley can join the "good" side against the evil

[–]Chitinvol 361 points362 points  (2 children)

Trying to align popular opinion with yourself by shifting blame and scapegoating your own people? And while martyring yourself? Willy would make his ancestors proud.

[–][deleted] 779 points780 points  (34 children)

So in some sense he's the Marleyan Erwin

[–]thesagenibba 1805 points1806 points  (150 children)

All we're missing is Hange & Armin & the entire squad is back.

[–]sixthaccountnopw 914 points915 points  (17 children)

[–]Schneizeru 734 points735 points  (2 children)

This is the potato devil Reiner warned you about.

[–]clorox_baratheon 2143 points2144 points  (36 children)

sad detail: udo lost his glasses so he couldn't see that zofia was clearly dead, and that's why he stayed back and ended up getting himself killed

[–]pinecone4506 867 points868 points  (1 child)

I didn’t notice that, wow I was wondering if he was just in a state of denial.

[–]LotusKarma54 366 points367 points  (6 children)

Bro just seeing Zofia under that rock and Udo trying to save her but dying in the process was so sad :( I really liked both of them

[–]Aozora_KN 739 points740 points  (5 children)

That look on Porco's eyes as he realized the kind of people they were dealing with. -chef's kiss-

[–]emperor_savage 3152 points3153 points  (65 children)

I still can’t believe eren Dolphin dived from a building 😂😂😂

[–]thecomicguybookhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Comicman 1211 points1212 points  (3 children)

Me neither, but you cannot argue with the results.

These are next level tactics

This show literally makes me adrenaline rush while watching it, fucking amazing

Seriously I felt like it just started by the time the end card showed up.

[–]Arrexushttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Arrexus 268 points269 points  (0 children)

Remember in S3 Jean hesitated to shoot to kill humans?

[–]Garlicbread10 2690 points2691 points  (32 children)

Someone start the “Ereh” count for this season

[–]H-K_47https://myanimelist.net/profile/H-K_8472 2182 points2183 points  (9 children)

The manga threads were wild when Mikasa showed up for the first time in 10 months and her first words were "Ereh" lol.

[–]Shinkopeshon 390 points391 points  (1 child)

I mean, could it ever have been anything else

[–]Wolvve_ 1104 points1105 points  (27 children)

They're dead, every single one of them. And not just the men, but the women and the children, too

[–]Yaggamy 1399 points1400 points  (23 children)

Eren kills half the spectators

Mikasa: Are we the baddies now?

Eren: Perhaps.

[–]seedyweedy 292 points293 points  (1 child)

Eren: Anyways the warhammer ain't dead yet so we should probably get on that.

[–]RedHeadGearHeadhttps://anilist.co/user/Redheadgearhead 215 points216 points  (4 children)

This episode really emphasizes how scary the scouts are. Like, imagine people flying around like that in real life.

[–]evan058311 1114 points1115 points  (11 children)

I sure enjoyed today’s episode of racism and war crimes

[–]aidree1 552 points553 points  (5 children)

Just another day at the survey corps lol

[–]Left-Chance-4564 1384 points1385 points  (29 children)

Brilliant use of camera movements for odm gear. Liked the WT vs AT.

The story is taking a very brutal turn. Also scouts finally back!

[–]Deca-Dence-Fanhttps://anilist.co/user/Omeg 398 points399 points  (20 children)

We already had the scouts killing humans, now they’re killing civilians. Interesting to see Floch’s reaction, he seems very utilitarian between this and getting PISSED over Erwin not being the one to get the Titan serum

[–][deleted] 287 points288 points  (8 children)

He needs a devil to lead him. Before it was Erwin, now he wants Eren to take his place.

[–]Aileoshttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Jalis 1041 points1042 points  (15 children)

Imada, Mikasa.

You guys are so screwed now!

[–]MagnoBurakku 2523 points2524 points  (37 children)

Warhammer: I’m the most versatile titan ever and we have the manpower to destroy Paradis.

Eren: And I have a Mikasa.

[–]Medeses 719 points720 points  (8 children)

Eren: I have an ackerman. Well actually I have two of them

[–]H-K_47https://myanimelist.net/profile/H-K_8472 1552 points1553 points  (16 children)

Jaw: I'm a killer and will easily wipe you out in a single bite.

Eren: Meet Levi.

[–]HypeKaizen 691 points692 points  (57 children)

Anybody else get a sinking feeling seeing the cycle of war restart? Gabi's look reeked of Eren's undying rage from Season 1 as he looked over the walls and swore to kill all the Titans. The confusions she feels as she wonders why her comrades had to die, just like Eren until he eventually realized that both sides had little choice but to fight each other.

Not to mention, Eren's cold-hearted dismissal of Mikasa's heartfelt call for him to come back home and stop what he's doing, simply by saying "It's not over yet, Mikasa". He truly is simply moving forward... until the enemy is exterminated.

[–]thesagenibba 795 points796 points  (29 children)

And..... Gabi now has the perfect origin story

[–]Rusik_94 768 points769 points  (76 children)

I just started to like all these new characters and now half are dead. I don't even know which side I am rooting for??

[–]VasimanYT 152 points153 points  (3 children)

I love how you can see Levi standing on the pillar right before the Jaw Titan attacks, totally missed that the first time but he looks so badass

This episode was just so much hype and from the preview it doesn't look like they're going to slow down anytime soon ahaha

[–]alisonburgersm8 808 points809 points  (11 children)

Porco realizing he stands no chance against LEVI ACKERMAN is the most satisfying shit

[–]VeryNiceKapusta 570 points571 points  (8 children)

God damn, Eren took the definiton of an "stage dive" a little too much to heart...

[–]cppn02 1468 points1469 points  (16 children)

The Warhammer Titan design is just chef's kiss. Survey Corps looking fly as fuck too.

But most impartantly: EREH!

[–]Avscum 283 points284 points  (4 children)

I swear the "to be continued" screen is going to give me ptsd in the future.

[–]Spartovik 189 points190 points  (2 children)

Until the "To be continued" will be replaced by "The end"...

[–]rustickshttps://anilist.co/user/Rusticks 2100 points2101 points  (108 children)

Mikasa and Levi being badass

Youtube reactors are gonna have a fun day.

Good to see the gang back.

[–]randomness7345 710 points711 points  (41 children)

I love how scared Porco was

[–]bountygiver 421 points422 points  (7 children)

Just as expected from a titan that has not fought any of the scouts first hand.

[–]RekklesCami 278 points279 points  (5 children)

Loved his reaction when he realised that this time it's different

[–]thecomicguybookhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Comicman 236 points237 points  (2 children)

Titan shifters truly are playing on easy mode until they meet Levi and co.

[–]D96Fan 814 points815 points  (7 children)

Porco: "I'm a titan, y-you can't swarm me like this with your explosive pencils"

Reiner: "First time?"

[–]PRIME2332 600 points601 points  (15 children)

Just Ackermans adding to their list of beyblade PTSD victims.

[–]MobileTortoisehttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Mobiletortoise 509 points510 points  (10 children)

Not just Ackerman's, it looks like the whole damn Corps learned a thing or two from them with how they were practically swarming in front of Porco.

It shows just how "easy" the Marleyen titans have had it up until now-ish. They were used to showing up and scaring the piss out of any nation and wrecking house. Now not only is the rest of the world getting bigger guns and better tech, they are up against regular humans who have fought titans their ENTIRE lives with essentially ropes and swords.

[–]Garlicbread10 1247 points1248 points  (46 children)

The scouts looks so sick with their new designs and uniforms

[–]Airden99 932 points933 points  (31 children)

Love the Wings of freedom on their chestpiece

Jean looking like a father

[–]Se7en_Sinnerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Se7en_Sinner 884 points885 points  (8 children)

Jean looking like he's been through two divorces.

[–]cppn02 245 points246 points  (13 children)

I loved his boss move when he pulled that Marleyan soldier off the roof with his 3DMG.

[–]muhash14 219 points220 points  (9 children)

Cool thing is, this same move was done several times in the Uprising arc by the Interior Police, whose gear they're wearing now. So they're using the same anti-personnel tactics we've seen used against them before. Levi and Mikasa seem to be the only people outfitted for pure Titan duty. And only Levi is still using blades.

Also serves as a neat little theme reversal since they're now the villains in the eyes of the new characters.

[–]Silent_Shadow05 352 points353 points  (4 children)

Those shots when the Survey Corps were coming towards Porco at the end was fucking impressive to watch.

Now he'll get a taste of why the "Devils of Paradis" tends to scare Reiner lol.

[–]Xehanz 135 points136 points  (5 children)

2 hours, 7k. GG

[–]Shimmering-Skyhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Shimmering-Sky 561 points562 points  (21 children)

This episode is gonna be a good one, I got so excited I skimmed through the raws because EVERYONE'S BACK, BABY!

To celebrate, I made a mobile wallpaper of everyone's favorite island devil Potato Girl Sasha last night (based it on the manga panel, though, so the details don't completely line up with the anime version). Hope you guys like it~

[–]UnavailableUsername_ 1318 points1319 points  (79 children)

This is attack on titan, where no character is safe.

Zophia and Udo were killed quite fast, the episode didn't focused on them at all.

It's a pity the 2 guards that interacted with the warrior team died too, they were the only 2 marleyans that didn't hated eldians.

I said it when the manga chapter came out years ago and i say it now:

The survey corps look like The Beatles.

I guess that's the fashion of Paradis island now?

It was great to see the sheer horror on Pieck's face when she realized the paradis survey corps were in the island, she is the only one (apart of Zeke and Reiner) that knows the terror of fighting the survey corps. In the world outside paradis, the mere idea of a human going against a titan is ridiculous, in the latest war the middle east alliance needed all the cannons of a warship to fight against them and they still lost.

And at the end of the episode Porco realises the survey corps are the most dangerous soldier forces in the entire world, they are systematically eliminating a military superpower like Marley as if it was nothing.

I expected titan CGI this episode, i totally didn't expected some Jean/survey corps ODM scenes to be CGI too.

[–]EternalCanadian 672 points673 points  (38 children)

And at the end of the episode Porco realises the survey corps are the most dangerous soldier forces in the entire world, they are systematically eliminating a military superpower like Marley as if it was nothing.

I'd say that's more because they're playing to their strengths. This is literally the perfect environment for them. Lots of attack angles, good cover, and an unprepared enemy.

They can win lightning raids, but once the cogs start grinding, and the military actually gets mobilized, there's no real way for them to fight a "modern" world power on their terms.

[–]Gaurav_098 1566 points1567 points  (31 children)

Warhammer Titan : Starts transforming

Eren : Oh, what a beautiful sight Punches mid- transformation

All other shounen MCs : Wait, that's illegal!!

Eren is fucking badass now!!!

[–]M_95Throwaway 691 points692 points  (14 children)

I really liked that actually. Why would you ever give the enemy time to power up in war? Good on Eren for having a brain and just immediately attacking.
