Have you ever hated someone/something sooooo bad that you wanted to completely obliterate them and violently pound the living shit out of it? Eren does.

Have you ever wanted the most amazing supernatural power granting unlimited strength and power to do so? Eren does.

Did you get it? No? Eren did.

I saw the new jack the giant slayer movie this weekand with friends, was ok, not awesome but not bad either. There were a couple of scenes in it though that really reminded me of this series, like one part where this army of giants bursts out of a forest chasing after a bunch of soldiers on horseback.

just reminded me of how awesome this series could be if a proper, big budget, live action adaption were ever done of it.

Wow. That was freaking awesome. So intense.

Spoiler :
I love the "I'm going to kill you all" face that Eren had, and the desperate nature of that standoff, it really has me wondering what will happen to our main characters now. For sure Eren is going to go look in that basement. Can't wait to see what he will find. Looks like the Titans are the result of some kind of experiment gone horribly wrong, but Eren & Mikasa might be the ultimate intended results?

Good to know why the massive and armored titans were able to appear and then disappear suddenly. Wondering if massive titan might be.... Eren's dad? D:

That was one awesome speech. The shouting added a lot of tension to it :awesome: I was kinda hoping that they would not accept his speech, though. I wanted them to fight their way out. But that would probably mean no coming back, so this is probably for the best. :)

So I have this little theory:
At 3:58 in episode 10 there was this green color flash right when Eren transformed. The same color flash was also in episode 4 at 20:44 when the large titan appeared behind Eren. That would also explain how the titan just disappeared without a trace.

oh, I forgot to add to my theory.
So the large titan could be in the end just a normal human, probably someone really important since that would add a lot of tension to the twist :sorcerer:

Yep, I think that's pretty obvious, the big titan and the armored titan.

Spoiler :
The question is, who. Good candidates: Eren's dad? Pixis? Even my favorite idea.... that one of them is somehow the king. We know there's a king, and that he's in the inner city, but what if he's not really there? They've not made reference to him really, and there were apparently nobles living outside the walls?! (where was Pixis when he was introduced? wasn't that out past wall Maria?!)


Wat. :dino:

What we must always remember is that there was a civilization long before this time. Who's to say humanity was not technologically advanced way back then? Perhaps that chemical Eren was injected with is a remnant or unrefined version of a technology that destroyed us in the past? Obviously it's connected to the titans, correct?

as someone who has read the manga I won't comment on the syrum he took. However, note that in the past humanity's technology was somewhere around the Renaissance period of our time. They primarily used gunpowder weapons like rifles and cannons, and those were very ineffective against titans due to their regeneration. They learned about the titans weakness's over time but had already been nearly pushed to the brink of extinction by then. So if there was a very advanced technology in the past it was not know universally.

Nice theory. :P And I'm glad Armin's FINALLY noticed that he's not as useless as he thinks. He'll be the brains for the team and I wanna see what awesome plans he comes up with! :awesome:
