How i'm supposed to wait another month?
I'm just melting from the awesomeness of this chapter! I do believe that grinning titan is Armin, just as most people say. But i just wonder if Armin is aware of what he's doing in that form and he's just doing what its takes to get the job done or he can't control his form yet?
When Eren transformed in the first time, he didn't know what he's doing. So it might be the same for Armin, and if Armin is actually a titan even though he's not as close as Misaka to Eren, then Misaka is definitely a titan too!

and what you guys think about this picture:
I feel like this is the fourth titan on the left. This picture from chapter 7 page 11.
Isn't that Marco, and if so he's dead already I doubt he was a titan.
Marco's not a titan. He just doesn't understand that they're talking not about how to survive the titans trapping them in that building (Marco must think Reiner's being rather cavalier about it all), but when to transform themselves into their titan forms in order to get away or go for the next wall.
This is the page that convinced me Reiner's the trio's leader though, incidentally.
This chapter made a few things clearer IMO among others, Sashas absence.
Kaido you need to read again the Trost Arc chapters ;D
That guy, Marco Bott(o), is the first important loss of the 104th Trainee Squad (I know that even Thomas, Carlotta etc die but frankly they were not important characters) and actually one of the misteries of the series is HOW he died/WHO killed him.
He's the guy I paired with Jean, cuz he was the kindest with him.
Does anyone else find it strange that the Smiling titan appeared again? It's been five years since it was last seen. Makes me wonder what it was doing for the past 5 years. Just hanging out near wall Maria for 5 years? They don't seem to venture out very far then.Maybe it is a titan shifter. Maybe it used to be someone from inside the walls and is trying to become human again. I thought that titans just walked aimlessly, but it seems they just stick around very close to the wall. Hm...Ymir was outside the walls for 60 years, now I wonder what she did that whole time. Just hang out near the wall ready to eat people...

I always thought the freaky smiling titan would come back to haunt Eren and Mikasa one day, no doubt about it. But for me it was supposed to appear in Shiganshina, near Eren's destroyed home, when they'd finally came back to explore its infamous basement. It'd make sense for Eren and Mikasa to defeat it at that place.
Now I'm starting to think that Isayama brought that titan to the spotlight sooner than expected because of Hannes. He's supposed to fulfill his promise and die protecting Eren and Mikasa (or rather, bringing these two and Armin together once again), since he couldn't do it in the past. How else could he do it if not fighting against that same titan?

But that she is the only one of the Trainees within Rose, to be precise, she was part of the North Squad, heading into the direction of Sina as her home is north of where Mike died which was about halfway between Sina and Rose.
Connie and the others are shown to be way south as that is where Utgard is right next to Wall Roses south side.
Sasha is gone for 24 hours now, the soldiers left Rose and are now in Maria.
I was wondering at first why Smiling Titan appeared, but seeing that there is no Breach within Rose, it's impossible for it to be there making the current events take place in Maria Territory.
Which IMO is interesting as last we saw the Monkey Titan was climbing Wall Rose, so the possibility is high he might be strolling around the Land of Maria.
And if you think about it, alone the possibility that Monkey Titan might be near indicates danger.
We know the shortage of Soldiers in the Legion considering the Police are forced to aid them.
The entire focus of the Legion is set to rescue Eren who was taken into Maria Territory.
Rose has Titans appears and Sasha is there.
I'm saying if it comes down to it, there may be no one there to help if needed unless she escaped to Sina and as said, it's been about 24 hours story wise until we saw her.
Not only is she the only one missing, but for 24 hours she may be in territory where Titans appeared while there are lack of Soldiers to help her as their focus lies on saving Eren.
Vanguard can't do crap, they can't leave the wall.
There is no one from the Legion able to help her as all are within Maria where the Ape Titan most likely went into as it climbed Rose.

Sasha's with a group that has horses. I don't think they will try to engage any titans they see, but rather they will try to rescue people by getting them away on horseback (because her dad is an awesome guy who is willing to do that for strangers). Hopefully they won't encounter many aberrants since it's the beast titan that created (or possibly somehow brought though I think most of us are assuming they're Connie's village members) that group of titans in the walls in the first place. I think most of the titans it brought into the walls followed it over to Castle Utgard so they shouldn't have to worry about that many being left, imo.
@Beatrice, I still don't understand what you're trying to say about Sasha. That she's in danger? Isn't she safe within wall Rose, and mounted as well?
edit: ninja'd by kannazuki -.-'
I hope someone can answer this, Irvin just lost his arm right?
Let me clarify first and let me know if I am wrong.
It's been 1 day since Mike died, from current events Yesterday.
9 hours after his death is when we first see Utgard.
Nanaba,Rene etc. Die during the Utgard events.
Ymir transforms shortly after.
Reiner and Bert transforms and kidnap Eren.
Irvin and others try to rescue Eren.
Yesterday - Titans were sighted.
Yesterday - Mike died.
Yesterday - 3 Hours after Mikes Death Sasha "dueled" the Titan.
Yesterday - 5 Hours after Mikes Death the sighting was reported in Hermiha.
Yesterday - 6 Hours after Mikes Death Hannes checked for a Breach and nothing was found.
Yesterday - 9 hours after Mikes Death People reached Utgard.
Today - Nanaba,Rene,Henning and Gerger die.
Today - Ymir transformed
Today - Reiner and Berthold transform and kidnap Eren and Ymir.
Today - The Scouting Legion attempts to rescue Eren.
Is my presumption correct that this all happened in one day?
I wanna ask this first before I go on.

Isayama has made a lot of revisions to the times, I've made a reply to your other thread about this. But yes, it remains true that all these happen within 24 hours (other than the fight happening now, which is a bit beyond 24 hours.)
And yes, Erwin seems to be missing an arm... What a beast... Armin has a long way to go lol...
