    The serum

    What if the serum Grisham gave to eren was nothing about turning into a titan. What if it was giving the ability to regenerate much faster.
    Think about it, if you become a titan because of the serum, you reclaim limbs you lost, but you lose your humanity in the process

    Re: The serum

    As far as regeneration goes eren has not shown more than any of the other shiters though. And eren loosing control was already implied to be normal the first time you transform. As far as the serum goes it did one out of 3 things: It made eren into a titan, it made eren into a coordinate or it did both things.

    Re: The serum

    When Grisha said " Their memories will teach you how to use it" you have any idea who "their" is? I think it means RBA and or Ymir because they have good knowledge of titan form control

    Or neither, and it just gave him the capacity to use something he already had. Grisha said 'their memories will help you use it' or some such weirdness just before injecting Eren, and conveniently Eren's memories seem tampered with around that time. That, and the Ape seems to screw with peoples' memories.

    My guess? Titans are mindless because they are essentially mind-swiped to the point of mentally being babies. Except instead of picking up and gleefully munching on EVERY single thing on the floor, they're programmed only to attack humans... maybe by something else with a command ability like the Ape.

    Re: The serum

    I think the serum might be for causing Eren temporary amnesia. Grisha might have wanted Eren to know about his powers at the right time. But I am likely to believe that it made Eren into a coordinate, since Grisha implies to 'use it and control it'

    Re: The serum

    Grisha specifically states in that scene (chapter 10 I believe) that "this power" will help Eren protect Mikasa and Armin. He specifically references giving Eren some kind of "power." He also specifies that the injection itself will cause memory loss. (If I can find the post where I translated the passage from Japanese, I'll link it from here...) So I agree with what kkck said above. Either titan powers, coordinate, or both. Maybe it's none of the above, but that's what I'm going with for now.

    Re: The serum

    This actually falls in line with a theory I have on titan types that I posted in a thread

    http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...th!-Those-Ears!

    I believe the feral/monster looking titans are Commander Titans that are able to give command to the mindless titans. Ymir said she stole her power from the "warriors" and I believe her power was the prototype for the commander titan which could explain why that titan was calling that one chick" Ymir-Sama". I believe Grisha had somehow acquired that same serum and enhanced or perfected it which is what he injected Eren. I believe Grisha knew all this and that all his research and how to master the power are all in the basement which I think should now become humanities top priority since it also goes hand in hand with recovering lost territory.
