No wonder Historia is such a Psycho.

I should clarify: It's not the smoothest reading experience, so you might want to wait a little longer.
4chan is a mess. Better wait someone put a link here instead of trying to grab the chapter there and finding a ton os spoilers in the process...
the 52 raw is http://www.onemanga.me/shingeki_no_kyojin/52
anyone knows any translated one yet?
I just need the last translated page now and I got them all in order and ready to upload.
here's the last one http://i.4cdn.org/a/src/1386349429775.jpg
Well, not many developments and certainly not my favorite chapter (specially if we consider the last 2 did not have much action) however there are several things worth talking about.
The first is that the chapter basically confirms that the enemy beyond the walls is in control of the government. Pastor nick was deemed a traitor and was dealt with as such. Its kind of a shame though, he was a simple man of simple faith. To be tortured and killed just like that is way worst than he deserved. And the gang lost someone who actually had info on the walls and could lead them to people that knew what was going on.
The second thing worth commenting on is historia's past. Very messed up to say the least. I wonder what the exact nature of the farm was.... It seemed like everyone there actually thought the people within the farm were in some form trouble. As if they were human garbage. On the other hand they weren't just killed.... Did the reiss guys pork so much around that they needed a farm to throw bastards into? I doubt it... Perhaps the farm as a whole was the means to give historia and her mom some level of comfort while keeping them away from everyone? It is a tad weird that historia herself was such an issue though. Her mom had the reiss name and so did her dad but why is her being borned such an unconformable situation? Her mom said that if she had the courage to kill her she wouldn't be there however it does not appear as if there is any inherent danger to historia herself, a child ignorant of the wall. Even today it does not appear as if she has some important knowledge about the walls, it appears as if she simply has the knowledge to point everyone in the right direction of the enemy within the walls (which would be the reiss family).
Interestingly it does appear as if both her parents actually had some level of love for her. The mother, who was still a bitch for the treatment she gave historia, did stay with her even if she was miserable and her last act was certainly aimed at historia surviving. Perhaps she recented historia because her birth actually drove her away for some reason from a more comfortable lifestyle. And her father who spared her at the last minute under a sick condition. Well, perhaps saying it was love is too great a compliment for either of them however they must have felt something for historia if both of them went out of their way to keep her alive.
So the question is, how do they move against the two enemies? I guess the best practical approach would be the immediate recovery of the wall and seeing what is in the basement however eren is not yet aware of how to control titans or harden his skin. If they do that they will gather even more intel and be regarded as heroes by everyone, the enemy's capacity to move against eren will be severely limited. The other course of action would be to move directly against the reiss guys and kidnap them. They certainly have info, if they get it out of them it will be a huge step forward in fighting all the enemies.
I do wonder how the police intents on dealing with eren though. The scouting legion guys are the ones that fight titans and the ones with experience, can the military police have a chance against eren? Even if they did it does appear as if the scouting legion backs up eren.
Am I the only one thinking the way Historia was drawn resembles the way the Woman on the Engravings of the Wall Emblems are?
Well killing bastard children was a common thing among noble houses...
Pastor Nick had already pointed out this when he spoke about Christa/Historia's familly a few chapters ago.Quote:
The only thing her mother ever showed was disgust, probably because she lost her status quo after giving birth to a bastard daughter. And her father was a coward.
Beatrice, It may makes sense if Historia's family is connected to the rulers of this land.Quote:
From what it looks like, Historia doesn't know anything about the wall cultists, but it is her family name and bloodline that can give her the access to this information, but it still feels shady to me... She can't just walk into the Reiss mansion with Scouting Legion, saying "Daddy, i'm home, can you tell us about the wall cult?"
I wonder if the translation of Pastor Nick's words about Historia was correct
