Actually, I'm calling it. Either this guy is the Beast Titan. OR! Annie ate her father, so she could transform back to human again. That's why her father said he's always by her side, 'coz she ate him.
(or it could be none from what I said )

The story at the crossover in the last episode just confirmed the theory that everything regarding walls and wars is staged for some much more higher purpose. And the main actors in it are Titan Sifters. I guess we will have to wait and see until the end of the series.
By the way, the sentence Jean made when walking with Armin inspired me to made this picture:
Didn't found art thread so I decided to leave it here, hope you will liek it
Also: here's a download link.
Bought volume 7 of the english version manga today. I know this is kinda late and I'm probably the last one to know, but I just realized the reason why Reiner said he didn't noticed any cannons brought in the Forest of Giants during the Female Titan arc. Dunno if this was mentioned in the anime though, but one of the extras in volume 7 said that these "cannons" actually just look like plain wagons carrying some barrels to an untrained eye. No wonder Reiner missed it. XD
And just a tidbit, according, to most of the subbed anime eyecatches, these were made for a specific titan(possibly implying that it's only for the Female Titan). While the english translated manga pluralized "titans" so to and imply that they've been using this special restraint weapon for awhile now. Of course, I do know Japanese don't have plural forms...that's why I'm a little bit confused.
What page of volume 7?
Someone translated the first chapter's initial draft that was included in the OUTSIDE Kou guidebook.

Armin and Marco used ore instead of boku, wtf?
There's a secret dialogue in page 169 after Hannes asks Eren about his father's whereabouts? Eren: "How many times do I have to tell you... [secret dialogue]" And then we're presented with that flashback - his father injecting him with something.
My bet: Eren's saying he believes his father is alive.
And have you seen this link in calorescence's blog? About a deleted blog post from the editor:
A snippet from it:
So it was written before chapter 13, hmm... which one of the many traumatizing truths could it be?Quote:
EDIT: Could it be that Eren knew the truth about his father, hence the missing dialogue?

Currently Disclosable InformationQuote:
13. Weapon for binding specific targets
A new weapon for use when the decision has been made to capture a specific titan, newly developed by the Survey Corps. It takes on the appearance of an ordinary horse-drawn carriage. (etc., etc.)

So it means that they're implying most likely that these weapons were specifically made for one Titan(Female Titan)?
I guess that would make sense since if they'd been using this for awhile now, trainees/recruits should actually know what those weapons are(because they should have at least trained with it/study it). XD
No, actually as far as I can tell it just means when they've singled out any *particular* titan they want to catch (you know, from among the "herd" if you want to call it that, lol), but not necessarily that there's something special about the titan. I would love if that was what it said but that's not the impression I'm getting.
Interesting, well I defer to whatever Kodansha put down then. Maybe they know something I don't about what's coming in the plot (or I could easily just be missing something about how "kakutei" is being used). Here they've got 「確定の巨人を拘束することを目的して」 and I read the green part literally as "predetermined titan." It can be read as being about a titan they've settled/decided on after thinking about it, but it's kind of vague (as to how long they took to decide, or more importantly when the decision was made). I took it for granted they'd be more specific about it being a "long sought after" titan, but maybe that vagueness is intentional? It wouldn't be the first time things got tricky or misleading...
Isayama Hajime appeared in NOTTV (a broadcast for smartphone); from that program, he commented that he wants to conclude Shingeki no Kyojin as soon as possible and he already has his next project in his mind. So, I think this comment has strengthen for Shingeki no Kyojin going to end by volume 20.
It's not a download, though. Did you try viewing the scanlation? Originally, a lot of the content from ch 1 is now what we know from around chapter 4 but there's also stuff that was going to be revealed earlier than it was, stuff that was cruder at the time (in particular, the reason Mikasa protects Eren), and secret dialogue that got blanked out because according to the editors "it's a secret." In that draft, Eren knows something that probably no one else knows and he's just thinking about telling everyone when suddenly the colossal titan shows up (2nd time) and they have their close encounter. If you haven't tried, you should read it-- it's not a download.
