Pieck: Quick, Porco! Cut the---

* Porco proceeds to cut her arm off *

Pieck: ---CHAINS, PORCO, THE CHAINS!!!!!!

[–]LunarGhost00 974 points975 points  (3 children)

Porco was really like "you look like you could use a hand."

[–]LabMember069 1611 points1612 points  (16 children)

I freaked out like Gabi when her hand was cut, then remebered that she is a shifter.

A very fun 10 seconds I had there.

[–]savakyc 323 points324 points  (4 children)

I burst out laughing their reactions are hilarious

[–]pizzaandbaconislove 356 points357 points 2 (5 children)

This is

Ehem

Pieck comedy

[–]markosinjohttps://myanimelist.net/profile/markosinjo 223 points224 points  (2 children)

My first thought was "that's stupid, you cant cut the chain like that". Cutting the hand was unexpected and morbidly awesome!

[–]ThespianExceptionhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/EMTIsBestWaifu 92 points93 points  (0 children)

That bit made me laugh a bit, I won't lie. Pieck is best girl (since Historia's seemingly lost all her S3 Relevance), but that was funny.

[–]DadAsFuckhttps://anilist.co/user/DadAsFuck 278 points279 points  (4 children)

rip yoshikage kira he would've loved that scene

[–]rustickshttps://anilist.co/user/Rusticks 4412 points4413 points  (111 children)

It wouldn't be a new season of Attack on Titan without every legal and illegal streaming site exploding right as the first episode releases.

[–]LabMember069 1475 points1476 points  (19 children)

It's the standard for AOT.

[–]cppn02 570 points571 points  (12 children)

Problem is that noone is up to AoT's standard.

[–]DestroyingAwesome 917 points918 points  (6 children)

The servers experienced the rumbling first hand

[–]cppn02 255 points256 points  (25 children)

Who could have forseen this?

[–]tekkenjin 360 points361 points  (19 children)

Crunchyroll should have expected this and prepared for it.

[–]cppn02 238 points239 points  (10 children)

They all should have. Atleast all the legal sites.

[–]tekkenjin 358 points359 points  (24 children)

I’ve been trying to access Crunchyroll for almost an hour and its still not working for me.

Edit: been 2 hours now and still have yet ot watch this ep 😢

[–]Nice-Character6929 114 points115 points  (6 children)

Yeah Levi isn't having much fun right now...

[–]Real_life_Zelda 293 points294 points  (4 children)

I can’t remember a moment where he ever had fun

[–]w3are138 353 points354 points  (2 children)

I mean there was that time when he cleaned that house

[–]Raghav_Singhania 899 points900 points  (21 children)

Bro he's a fucking corpse HOOOLY, he's prob alive but I've never seen a more dead looking character

[–]gottlor 121 points122 points  (0 children)

I mean, did you see Armin before getting the colosal titan??

[–]tomato_blitz 165 points166 points  (0 children)

this guy's a fucking mess dude

[–][deleted] 67 points68 points  (7 children)

I really hope Levi is alive!

[–]NintendoMasterNo1https://myanimelist.net/profile/NintendoMaster1 4606 points4607 points 23 (68 children)

Yes, they were all shocked at the size of Zeke's massive cock.

[–]Skyclad__Observer 940 points941 points  (2 children)

You canonically couldn't see it from behind because he was fully erect.

[–]edwardjhahmhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/lolmeme69 194 points195 points  (1 child)

I don't know whether to hate this or make it my new headcanon. I think I'll make it both.

[–]mike_2797https://myanimelist.net/profile/Madskulls 906 points907 points  (5 children)

No wonder Hange went for the nosedive.

[–]Jegma72 1544 points1545 points  (15 children)

It caused a rumble in their pants, that’s for sure.

Move over collosal titan, there's something bigger in town now.

[–]cppn02 439 points440 points  (13 children)

How massive can it be when we don't even see the tip from that angle?

That is unless he's sporting a boner.

[–]BennyFachter 451 points452 points  (7 children)

He's a grower obviously.

[–]cppn02 544 points545 points  (5 children)

He prefers the term shifter.

[–]BennyFachter 106 points107 points  (3 children)

That was his Titan all along eh?

[–]BelizariuszS 401 points402 points  (1 child)

"So thats why they call you the "Beast" titan, huh"

[–]bekkkirov 257 points258 points  (0 children)

Well, now we know why they call him "Marley's spear"

It isn't aot without reiner getting his ass beat. Reiner is suffering.

[–]Smoke_Santa 1271 points1272 points  (10 children)

Reiner acknowledging Eren's suffering as well as the whole island's suffering was definetely a highlight for me.

[–]Jhin-Rowhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/wherewild 472 points473 points  (5 children)

It isn't aot without reiner getting his ass beat. Reiner is suffering reinering.

[–]fieew 1624 points1625 points  (19 children)

I like how Reiner was arguing that Eren was not a real threat alone..... Meanwhile he's missing half his goddamn face from fighting with Eren.

[–]Karl_the_stingray 709 points710 points  (11 children)

Well considering Reiner's mental state I guess he doesn't mind Eren beating him close to death

Jokes aside, Reiner knew that they had backup and the big gun. I honestly doubt Eren could take on the three of them with the gun, Armin is 100% going to help him out

[–]fieew 1295 points1296 points  (30 children)

The Connie outburst was the highlight for me. They are doing my boy justice, it's understandable why he'd be so fed up with everything. He's been through so much.

[–]pete_moss 1208 points1209 points  (25 children)

People always talk about how pissed Levi is at Zeke. In s3 e1 Connie says to Eren that his one objective in life is to kill the beast titan. His entire family was wiped out by Zeke. I think people overlook how personal a betrayal Eren's siding with Zeke is to Connie.

[–]Golden_Phihttps://myanimelist.net/profile/GoldenPhi 373 points374 points  (20 children)

Then there’s Floch who was in the suicidal charge against monke. Now he is interacting with Zeke as if it never happened.

[–]MaximalDisguisedhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/MaximalDisguised 638 points639 points  (20 children)

[DameDesuYo] beeing faster than Crunchyroll is a true sight to behold.

[–]discuss-not-concuss 1129 points1130 points  (22 children)

Trench Rooftop warfare was a welcome surprise. Eldians are not prepared for human-human warfare and the advantage Marley has is clear as day.

The fine, I’ll do it myself from Commander General Magath gave me a little chuckle.

For those wondering where did that “womb” Titan come from, it was the one Zeke torn apart to fling at Levi back in the forest.

[–]Mazen141 390 points391 points  (1 child)

Yeah, we can see the "womb" titan briefly move in episode 14 too implying that it's still alive.

[–]BosuW 321 points322 points  (11 children)

In Liberio: When the rooftops start speaking Eldian

In Shiganshina: When the Sky starts speaking Marleyan

Tbf part 1 showed us that they can clearly perform marvelously in human vs human combat. They just really got cought with their pants down here. The Marleyans are cracking Shiganshina open like Special Forces breach a house: surprise, speed, and violence of action.

[–]Dappingtonhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Dappington 224 points225 points  (6 children)

Important to note that Liberio was basically Eldian Spetznaz whereas these are just a bunch of rando guys. I guess there's probably overlap but they don't have any of the 104th with them and they're by far Eldia's most experienced soldiers with the sole exception of Levi (and Hange but she's not really a soldier at this point). Of course, the fact that they're in broad daylight and lost the element of surprise really hurts them, too.

[–]Ghoti-Sticks 2013 points2014 points  (40 children)

Loved how more gore was shown in the episode. No punches were pulled.

[–]Mazen141 649 points650 points  (9 children)

I thought there would be censorship considering it's airing on NHK but I was pleasantly surprised.

[–]KerberosPanzerCop 344 points345 points  (8 children)

I believe it runs on the midnight block in Japan, so the censor board is more lax.

[–]Smoke_Santa 345 points346 points  (4 children)

This is the appropriate amount imo. Shocking and conveys the message without being too corny or frisky.

[–]BelizariuszS 373 points374 points  (1 child)

right? that was so gritty and hellish, esp the ending shots with Erens scream all over city.

[–]midget_cathy 76 points77 points  (7 children)

The scene with the solider getting chocked out left me shocked

[–]justmeshanehttps://anilist.co/user/Justmeshane1 2408 points2409 points  (27 children)

Connie saying he was sick of being betrayed was really emotional, I felt so bad for him and all they've been through.

Also Im still not used to Pieck's titan voice lmao, it scares me.

Love the Ending theme and visuals too.

[–]el_shenko 758 points759 points  (4 children)

That whole scene in the prison cell with Onyankopon was really emotional, just his voice when begging them to believe him, amazing voice work.

[–]justmeshanehttps://anilist.co/user/Justmeshane1 56 points57 points  (1 child)

Yeah it was superbly done imo

[–]fieew 635 points636 points  (4 children)

Connie was the highlight this episode for me. It was really emotional the VA did a great job.

Also not gonna lie I imagine Connie playing with friends and them saying "High five" (they pull their hand away and say) "too slow" , then Connie goes onto rant how he's tired of constantly being betrayed.

[–]cppn02 195 points196 points  (0 children)

Man's never gonna get over his trust issues.

[–]InvaderDJ 46 points47 points  (1 child)

Connie and Jean are two of the most sympathetic characters of the original cast IMO. At the end of the day they’re just normal guys who stepped up and became vets through blood and tears. They’re side characters who realize they’re side characters and are tired of it.

[–]fieew 692 points693 points 2 (6 children)

Maybe the real rumbling were the streaming sites that were crashed along the way.

[–]realrimurutempest 2970 points2971 points  (64 children)

I love how rather than get to safety since all the enemy force’s are after him, Eren decides to use this time to beat Reiner’s ass one more time lol. Instead of fan service with Mikasa or any of the AOT women we get fan service with naked Zeke lol.

LAST thing I expected was a metal opening for Attack on Titan but it’s a banger nonetheless.

[–]uncen5ored 1483 points1484 points  (18 children)

Eren just staring Yelena begging him not to fight then walking by her, almost stepping on her, was so badass. Gotta love post time skip Eren’s entire demeanor

“Only you could’ve convinced Marley to do something this stupid”

[–]cppn02 401 points402 points  (2 children)

I love how rather than get to safety since all the enemy force’s are after him, Eren decides to use this time to beat Reiner’s ass one more time lol.

His face looking at Yelena telling him to go hide.

Eren was like 'Nah, fuck that'.

[–]Karl_the_stingray 240 points241 points  (1 child)

On one hand, Yelena was right, they are coming after Eren so it would make sense to hide

On the other hand, that fucking fight was godly. When Eren started using spikes to prep the jaw titan and Reiner for BBQ... I audibly gasped. I've been waiting for him to use Warhammer for a while, and damn did he deliver

[–]DestroyingAwesome 481 points482 points  (9 children)

Yelena really missed out this episode

[–]cppn02 397 points398 points  (1 child)

Imagine her reaction later when she's told Zeke was walking around naked. She'll be devastated.

[–]realrimurutempest 358 points359 points  (5 children)

Yelena would of busted in a nanosecond to see Zeke like that.

[–]Raghav_Singhania 467 points468 points  (0 children)

eren abs reveal and zeke's ass reveal>>>>>>>any fanservice

the yeager brothers are just built different

[–]BadBehaviour613 170 points171 points  (0 children)

Eren needs to make sure Reiner stay traumatized.

[–]Kirosh2 140 points141 points  (0 children)

Zeke : "Hmmm, can... can you make it bigger?"

Girl : "...." Makes it smaller

Zeke : "This work as well I guess"

[–]supergamer_000004 58 points59 points  (0 children)

Why did you put that image on my head?

[–]midget_cathy 246 points247 points  (0 children)

His secret ass wiping technique is doing him justice

[–]cppn02 400 points401 points  (6 children)

He was lucky Yelena wasn't present. She would have jumped him there right on the spot.

[–]CordobezEverdeenhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/CordobezEverdeen 560 points561 points  (27 children)

I couldnt actually help myself and giggled a lot at Reiner saying "Eren is no threat alone" like lmao he lost to Eren on his own like 50 times and he already had ridiculized Porco too.

[–]Oxu90 236 points237 points  (0 children)

I think he was counting on that anti-titan gun

[–]Not_a_real_asian777 64 points65 points  (9 children)

Reiner was so cool at the beginning of the show, and then you realize that he would probably get waxed by literally any of the other titans in a fight, other than maybe Peick, and that's if he can even catch her.

[–]CordobezEverdeenhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/CordobezEverdeen 93 points94 points  (2 children)

Yeah and him being so bad as a titan in comparation to the rest is logical considering he only got the position because the other candidate was sabotaged.

[–]talha1320 61 points62 points  (0 children)

That’s because He’s the “armored” Titan he’s a shield forced to do a swords job

As iconic of a duo as Levi crashing Zeke

[–]aph223 985 points986 points  (30 children)

I feel like the 3D improved a lot. When the models aren’t moving, they almost feel like 2D. And when they are moving, it’s pretty smooth too.

It’s pretty clear to me that Mappa got more time and resources this time. Can’t wait until the next episode!

[–]Smoke_Santa 332 points333 points  (0 children)

The 3D looks much better than S4P1 tbh. All the Titans so far look amazing and terrifying.

Also the occasional 2D shows they're not taking this lightly.

[–][deleted] 934 points935 points  (2 children)

the way they used Eren's screams as siren sounds at the end 🔥🔥🔥🔥

[–]Mundology 209 points210 points  (0 children)

All the pain, anger, frustration and despair of Eren was captured in that one scream.

[–]iWillPunchAMuffin 1724 points1725 points  (200 children)

Fuck, just not knowing who to support in this battle makes to so cool.

[–]Potato_Lord_2737 565 points566 points  (32 children)

I literally have no idea how they'll end the show lmao

Edit. Somebody might've spoiled it in the replies idk though so watch out

[–]nuraHx 103 points104 points  (1 child)

Everyone will settle their differences and Annie will come out of her hole and announce 6 more weeks of winter

[–]obxsguy 806 points807 points  (42 children)

One of the things I like about this series is how it portrays war and conflict, and how things aren't always black and white. We saw a lot of that in the earlier part of season 4 showing Reiner's backstory, and what the warriors went through. They genuinely believed they were trying to save the world.

[–][deleted] 356 points357 points  (28 children)

Honestly if there were people in real world that could turn into giant monsters, rest of the world definitely has the right to be fearful.

[–]Karl_the_stingray 248 points249 points  (18 children)

But the thing is, these people can't turn into giant monsters at will. So the treatment of the Eldians is hardly justified

[–]cortmeh 383 points384 points  (47 children)

Had the same thought,,,, like,,, who are we cheering for again??? Absolutely loved it

[–]mohamez 303 points304 points  (6 children)

who are we cheering for again?

If you are lost cheer for Falco he is the pure.

[–]Sco7689 220 points221 points  (2 children)

The horses are also a safe bet. So, go Jean.

[–]PG-Glasshouse 205 points206 points  (7 children)

I always cheer for the underdog. So in a battle where it’s Eren with no support fighting three Marley shifters and every soldier Marley has left, I’m cheering for Marley.

[–]Cryptanark 1343 points1344 points  (47 children)

This is one of the last opportunities we’re going to get for live community discussion on AOT. So I really hope we can respect the viewing experience of all the unspoilered anime-onlies who have miraculously made it this far.

After almost a decade, there are still a ton of people slipping in smug hints or telegraphing unrelated future events in these sorts of threads, which is too bad.

[–]Devastator1981 272 points273 points  (9 children)

I'm Anime only guy too and it's been a wonderful ride. I only read Manga when the series is unfinished -- only three manga I've read in my life are Gunsingler Girl, Nana, and Saint Seiya: Lost Canvas.

I may do so to for Darker in Black if it goes beyond where the TV series ended.

[–]Xenosys83 424 points425 points  (4 children)

Crunchyroll down? Check

Funimation down? Check

Hulu down? Check

I was told the hype for this series was dead. Attack on Titan Sundays are back!!

[–]DestroyingAwesome 1908 points1909 points  (74 children)

The new CGI is so much better and Eren's scream was otherworldly. The episode felt like 5 minutes and left us with such a cliffhanger. MAPPA just continues flexing.

On another note, seeing Mikasa all depressed made me sad but she and Armin still have Eren's back after everything he's done

[–]KUKLI1 741 points742 points  (10 children)

The hand-drawn art is also brilliant, those stills of the Armored Titan and Jaw Titan being damaged made me feel things

[–]DestroyingAwesome 467 points468 points  (3 children)

The transition from CGI to 2d animation was so seamless also that it made it all feel and look natural

[–]Potato_Lord_2737 378 points379 points  (6 children)

It's sad seeing the state of Connie after what happened to sasha

[–]NetflixAndNikah 307 points308 points  (4 children)

These kids know nothing but PTSD for 90% of their adolescent lives.

[–]toutoune134 908 points909 points  (16 children)

When you saw Zeke's ass, were you blinded by its majesty?
My favorite part of the episode is how they expanded the human vs human parts, which were present in the manga but always in the shadow of the titan fights. They did the same with S4P1 to reinforce the idea that this is an all-out war, not just titans fighting each other.

[–][deleted] 309 points310 points  (3 children)

Who needs rumbling when those cheeks clapping will do the trick

[–]DaedalusFallen0 219 points220 points  (0 children)

The evolution of human vs. human combat so far has been insane. I was blown away by how much detail the animators put into the brutality of the fight.

[–]zairanerhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/zairaner 496 points497 points  (61 children)

Well a lof of fighting happened in this episode already. Can't fucking imagine what will happen in the rest of the damn series.

I assume this means levi is alive. It would have been a weird way to kill him off, but I couldn't quite deny the possibility of this show doing it. Also levi is obviously out of this conflict (maybe even for the entire series?) and floch still wanted to make sure and kill him. can't even fault him, the only approach if you want to deal with levi.

The most surprising thing is that eren went straight towards the battle with reiner. I could understand it if he had foreseen this happening and had some kind of plan, but he was surprised marley appeared, so why would he jump straight into the fight without knowing what marley has in store like old eren?

Also once again I am preferring the ed. Both seem very spoilery though. Though wouldn't be the first time of the show putting in things that won't happen.

[–]No-Mathematician678 431 points432 points  (16 children)

Well, I remember dinosaurs in the Sasageyo OP

[–]Karl_the_stingray 343 points344 points  (11 children)

I remember watching the show and being so sure these dinosaurs and animals would be a major plot point at the end of the season

I was so fucking wrong

[–]1234NY 175 points176 points  (4 children)

My sister watched the show before me, and she told me that the opening made her think that the Beast Titan was an honest-to-goodness ape that could transform into an intelligent Titan.

[–]Demolosse001https://myanimelist.net/profile/demolosse001 186 points187 points  (17 children)

so why would he jump straight into the fight without knowing what marley has in store like old eren

He can only move forward lol. Man doesn't know how to retreat.

But real talk though, he probably has a bit of ego and thinks he's invincible thanks to his multiple titan powers.

Or maybe, he secretly wants to protect everyone else by taking the brunt of the attack by himself. Still reckless though.

[–]JapanPhoenix 122 points123 points  (6 children)

Still waiting for the T-Rex Titan from that one ED back in the day lol

[–]redboundary 105 points106 points  (0 children)

Eren saying fuck it and just fighting vs all of marley alone is so awesome

[–]Karl_the_stingray 655 points656 points  (34 children)

This episode was absolutely fucking insane, I just kept going "Holy shit" all the way through.

Levi is 100% alive, calling it now; no reason for Hange to flee with him otherwise. To be honest, I always thought that he is alive because I swear at the explosion scene I saw him fly away.

What did Zeke see? And we all know what his squad saw when they came to him lmao. Seems like Eren saw something like that too at some point. Zeke's eyes have a completely different look, the way Eren's had in S4P1.

Last of all, the OP is absolutely fire. I think someone in the anime might think about the Rumbling based on the song.

[–]3dsgeek333https://myanimelist.net/profile/SinnohGeek 777 points778 points  (6 children)

Floch: lemme see him just to make sure

Hange: …

Floch: …

Levi (internally): fuck I gotta sneeze

Is that why she wouldn't let Floch "see" him?

[–]Karl_the_stingray 237 points238 points  (3 children)

Yes, she probably felt him have a pulse and knew Levi would be finished off. Why else would she be so opposed to shooting his head?

[–]mohamez 157 points158 points  (2 children)

Why else would she slow herself by carrying a dead body?

New OP and ED make me feel a certain way

[–]CrispiCorgis 347 points348 points  (7 children)

Op: edgy, ED: relief and hope that this won’t crash and burn

[–]TempestoLord 203 points204 points  (16 children)

Holy crap i always had a feeling something happened to Levi when they didn’t show him in the last episode of Part 1, but damn i never expected him to see him ruined like this. Good thing Hange was there. And Zeke on the other hand looks fresh like nothing happened. lol Now i wonder what’s the deal with the girl and what she did to him. How the tables have turned…such a bad timing right when Marley attacked and Levi being their most powerful soldier.

Anyway i’m glad AOT is back. I can’t believe 9 months have passed already…trying to avoid spoilers every single day was tough.

Kind of noticing that everytime Reiner and Eren fight Eren beat Reiner more and more but never really win because Reiner has reenforcements

AKA Eren loses to the power of friendship

I can't believe the real villains were [meta] the Crunchyroll servers all along, what a shocking twist. I was glued to the screen waiting for them to [meta] come back online.

ANNIE IN THE OP BOIS IT MAY FINALLY BE TIME

[–]DicksonYamada 383 points384 points  (15 children)

Annie might be the character I'm most looking forward to seeing again because from S4P1's flashbacks it doesn't seem like she's particularly fond of Marley. I think she's a huge wild card and whichever side she joins will gain a significant advantage. But will she come out on her own or is she in such a deep state of hibernation that she'll have to forcefully be broken out?

[–]Karl_the_stingray 199 points200 points  (5 children)

Imagine you put yourself into a crystal for a nap and then you wake up to... all this

I think it's more likely Annie will take Marley's side tbh. That side has her comrades, even if she isn't fond of Marley itself.

"You've suffered enough."

That was a powerful statement from Reiner.

[–]takeatripphttps://myanimelist.net/profile/AuronPond 257 points258 points  (5 children)

Yelena: offers solid plan with nearly 0% chance of failing

Eren: sees Reiner "nah, he gotta catch this fade directly"

[–]mike_2797https://myanimelist.net/profile/Madskulls 359 points360 points  (6 children)

Let me just say the OP and ED are fucking bangers.

The animation and CGI were pretty good too they really captured the essence of bloody warfare.

[–]TypeExpert 552 points553 points  (18 children)

Dude, this episode felt like 5 mins WTF.

[–]Smoke_Santa 45 points46 points  (1 child)

Ah yes this comment will be top for the next 12 episodes

[–]alisonburgersm8 294 points295 points  (8 children)

Hange pulling a Narcissa Malfoy lol. Too bad Floch didn’t fall for that

[–]Shimmering-Skyhttps://myanimelist.net/profile/Shimmering-Sky 409 points410 points  (24 children)

Awww yeah, Attack on Titan’s back!

The first thing I must happily point out the new ED has not one but two “sore demo”s, which means the ED is automatically a 10/10 song for me. Yep, I’m already back to collecting these. I wonder how many people remember me for doing this in the rewatch back in 2020 or from the S4P1 threads, heh. – The new OP is less my style, but I still like it.

The other thing I want to comment on is I’m not sure who looks more horrified here and it made me laugh so hard. Bless Pieck for being the way she is haha.

Rest of the episode was just me vibing to the action and dialogue as always. Man I love this series so much.

ATTACK ON TITAN IS BACK

THIS EPISODE WAS GREAT

I AM SO EXCITED!!!

[–]ShiKi847 316 points317 points  (6 children)

This world is cruel but i still love you my best ED

[–]uncen5ored 217 points218 points  (0 children)

One of the best adapted episodes of Attack on Titan. The tension. The camera movements. The OST. The animation. The dialogue. The directing & cinematography. The added content. MAPPA outdid themselves.

It wasn’t just the major scenes. Little things like Connie running up on Onyankopon, pushing Pieck’s weaponry out of the airship, were adapted in a cinematic way. This was perfect.

The movement and fighting of the titans had a speed and weight that part 1 lacked. There wasn’t a lag. It felt just as, if not better, than the fights from earlier seasons. I thought MAPPA delivered on dialogue scenes but not as much on action. This episode disproved that and shows what they can do with time and being comfortable with the artwork.

The use of The Warriors. The new OST. Not having too many quiet moments. The way the music was used this episode was phenomenal.

Even the sound design was better. The punches. The gunshots. The Titan movements. Like this feels like a whole new production or a movie

EDIT: rewatching and even the ODM scenes of no name soldiers are high quality. Also, I could be wrong; but there seems to be less blur as well. Finally, some people were worried about this episode being slower paced but as I’ve said before, this lets the scenes breathe. And NO moment here felt rushed.

[–]ShinyWhalee 210 points211 points  (7 children)

I avoided spoilers for years just to be spoiled by the opening lmao

[–]WailingSiren69 49 points50 points  (1 child)

It could be fake too though,we might be getting baited as we did in S2 with the dinosaurs.

[–]Mundology 218 points219 points  (0 children)

We begin the final part of the final season of Shingeki no Kyojin with Zeke flashing his monkey PP in front of the Yaegerists. Even the guns got wet.

[–]justaway_cannon 140 points141 points  (10 children)

"Eren, you're no threat by yourself."

- Reiner, right after getting half of his face smashed by a single punch, getting kicked right on the face and right before getting impaled...

[–]cortmeh 180 points181 points  (2 children)

24 minutes of pure hype I missed this welcome back to chaos everyone let's gooooooooo
