Attack on Titan Episode 36 Review

There was a lot happening in this episode. Of course we started right where we left off as usual. They’re chasing down Reiner and the others to get Eren and Christa back. I was looking forward to a lot of fighting this episode, especially with Mikasa. When she fights, she’s fantastic. I can’t keep my eyes off her!

 

It was amusing to watch Ymir pull Christa out of her mouth but a little gross at the same time to watch her spit up Ymir’s saliva. Ew. It was cute how Christa didn’t freak out. It surprised me just how open Ymir decided to be towards Christa and how Christa didn’t hesitate to say she’d help her. I really love those two together. I’m trying not to get too attached to them though. This is a drama so, one of them could die. -.-

 

So the other titans attack Reiner and the others. It shows what different kind of titan’s they are. Still more questions need to be answered as to why they can turn into titans in the first place. I have a feeling that’s not going to get answered this season. Still considering picking up the manga. I might be able to fit in one more manga review after Fairy Tail ends (which is in 7 weeks).

 

When Mikasa gets onto the armored titan, the look in her eyes was absolutely terrifying. It was probably the scariest when she as peering between the giant fingers to see Eren. She was not going to hesitate to kill anyone who got in her way of saving Eren. There are times when I wonder if this relationship is healthy or not. LOL Dire circumstances living in that kind of world though so that kind of violence I guess is to be expected.

 

Erwin was absolutely bad ass in this episode. While telling his men to charge to rescue Eren, I was not expecting the titan attack. He barely flinched too and just kept telling his men to keep going! There wasn’t fear on his face, just determination and will. Of course as the titan runs off with his arm, dragging him behind him, you think he’s dead. Who wouldn’t? But nope. Right when when they make an opening to save Eren, he shows up like a bad ass and frees him!

 

This was an awesome episode. A lot happened and we got a lot of action. I was hoping to see more of Mikasa and I’m glad I got what I asked for! Did you watch the episode? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

 

Also…did anyone else notice the silly look on this horses face after the titan ate his rider?

I can’t get enough of that face. LOL

Attack On Titan Ep 34 Review

A lot of dialogue in this episode. The conversation with Eren and Reiner is interesting. It’s clear Reiner is suffering from severe mental issues and that’s kind of an explosive mix with someone who can turn into a Titan. Eren’s anger towards him is totally justified but at the same time I understand where Ymir is coming from. Trying to escape their current situation just wasn’t going to happen.

 

Meanwhile, I love how the scouts don’t hesitate to track Eren down. Mikasa and Armin stay positive that they’ll find Eren alive and save him, like they always have done since they were kids.

 

Eren has no pity for Reiner and his mental breakdown. Frankly, I don’t blame him. I wouldn’t either. It’s not easy to deal with the fact that someone you trusted betrayed you. Betrayal is probably one of the worst things you can ever feel. Eren just needs to hold his hot temper in check. I do wonder if he ends up getting himself killed by the end of this story. He definitely doesn’t care about his own life.

 

Bertholdt doesn’t say a whole lot this episode. Ymir can tell that he knows something is not normal with Reiner. His mental state is unstable. Eren’s temper snap’s when Reiner starts playing the victim and I loved it. I love how Eren always speaks up. So many times I watch anime and get frustrated when characters don’t question things I think they should be questioning. With this one, Eren always questions and cuts out the bullshit. It’s one of the things I love about his character.

 

Eren asking what Bertholdt was thinking when he kicked the wall and was the reason why his mother was unable to escape only to be eaten in front of him, ¬†was well written. The raw emotion in that scene was palpable. The animation this season is just breathtaking. They’re really nailing the emotion with the animation and the voice acting. With Attack On Titan I just watch the subs. I’m not concerned about watching it english.

 

Can I just say that Reiner is a total ass? I’m not quite understanding why he’s acting like he was the victim being forced to kill people. I’m wondering whose pulling the strings since he seems to be full of regret. Eren is understandably upset. The shouting match between those too was intense. I liked how Ymir seemed to put a stop to his murderous rage for a few moments. At least someone with a rational head was there to keep Eren from doing something stupid. After she mentioned the monkey titan to Reiner and Bertholdt, their expressions were definitely making me curious. We didn’t get any questions answered but hopefully we will next episode. That damn thing is still a mystery!

 

The episode ends with the scouts closing in on Eren and Ymir’s location. Of course it wouldn’t take them long to find them! I’m hoping we get to see some fighting in the next episode! Did you watching this episode? What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments!

Attack on Titan Ep 33

This episode slowed things down a bit and gave us a bit of flash back into Eren, Mikasa, and Armin’s past. At first, I thought it was redundant to see another flashback of Eren getting saved by Mikasa again. Then as it went on, it made sense why they showed it. I liked the transition of her yelling for him after he runs off after the scuffle and her waking up to the present time. It fit with the situation since Eren had been taken away. It reminded her of when he’d always leave them behind. Eren tries so hard to take care of things on his own and not drag anyone else into it. At least, thats the impression that I get.

 

Mikasa is one of my favorite characters and I just knew she would be frustrated once she woke up and found out it had been 5 hours since Eren had been taken away with Ymir. I remembered when she had followed Annie to take Eren back (one of my favorite scenes from last season!) and then of course she remembers that same moment. I love that she just wants to be by his side. It doesn’t matter to her that he always seems to fail. He keeps getting back up and I think that’s what drives her. No matter how dire things get, he keeps standing up and so it inspires her to do the same.

 

The character development can be seen here because there’s not as much fear and terror. There’s worry, sure, but they know that Eren is a fighter and won’t just go down. He’ll keep fighting back until they arrive to rescue him. I love that about the chemistry between them. There’s a bond there. It’s never really spoken too much, you just know its there and can feel it. I love animes that can convey that type of emotion effortlessly without really having to show it.

 

The episode mostly focused on holding onto hope and to not give up even though things seemed dire and unpredictable. This story has become unpredictable with so many things happening and secrets being revealed. I’m looking forward to the next episode but at the same time I’m bummed there’s only going to be 13 episodes this season. Not sure why we’re only getting half of what we got the first season but I guess there’s reasons. I just hope we don’t have to wait two more years for a third season. It’s hard to stay engaged in an anime when the seasons are so far spread apart! I could probably read the manga if I wanted but I’m already reading three different active mangas as it is. LOL

 

So what did everyone think of this episode? It was nice to slow things down before it picks up next episode with Eren in the forest with the titans and Ymir. I’m curious what Reiner and them have to say about why they turn into Titans and why they posed as humans!
