What a mouthful this chapter was! Oh, and reports of a recent sunken ship, some were were saddened, others were disturbingly happy
So now that the Survey has lost the link with how to follow their location, everything looks rather bleak, but interesting.
I feel bad that Reebs had kick the bucked already, and now his son, who just has gotten introduced, has to pickup where his father left off. He may be spoiled, but I don't find him unlikable by any stretch, as he did show compassion for Historia.
Speaking of Historia; First her reaction to being heir to the throne, and then finding out who her murdered mom was so horrible. As if all she's been through already wasn't enough, and I bet this isn't the end for the poor girl. I wonder what kinda person Historia will shape up to be, when she has faced much suffering up until now.
Now im just itching for when the arrive at the Reiss residence. That's when the toffee really hits the fan.
And the Ackermann vs Ackermann (vs Ackermann) showdown which will inevitably happen.
Also, what exactly is a Anti-Human 3D Maneuver Gear? Annie surely demonstrated quite nicely how it can be used against a humans, but whatever. Or is it a twisted Dark counterpart?
Interesting chapter, lots of things going on.
As far as the ackerman thing I doubt levi is actually siding with the military police. The tone of that guy was one of disappointment for the most part. I would find it very weird that levi turns out to be some sort of traitor at this point, his character would just not make sense. I wonder if perhaps a reason for erwin to keep him were his ties to the MP though. It would be weird that erwin would let a spy past him but it would make sense for him to keep it to spy on it as well.
I am not sure the knifes that were given to eren are completely necessary here. Even a slight bit of movement would be enough to allow him to get hurt.... Biting his tongue, scratching himself, getting kicked.... it should not be that difficult to get hurt here. The issue is transforming without killing historia.
Did anyone else think that the bearded guy could possibly be the ape titan? On another note I want to know whats in the basement already...its killing me XD
so does this mean Mikasa and Levi are related?
We'll need to wait and see..

We have soon been introduced to every characters past.. I wonder who's next? Any guess?
We know about Connie, Sasha and Historia. I don't think anything new will come from them.
So.. Mikasa, Armin, Jean.. Eren's will probably come with the basement and all that.
And we still don't know anything regarding Hange past, right?
I made an account just to help you guys with understanding the chapter. Some of you seem to not understand it at all so lets get started.
Q: Who's the hooded woman?
A: A random new character that's following the orders of an important character.
Q: Did Levi Betray the Scouting Legion?
A: No, you're confused with Levi and the hooded woman, also, the man in the hat is referring to handling the guy he made strong "Levi" his pride, Levi did not betray anyone. The man in the hat saw through the Scouting Legions plan because he trained Levi, and saying it's up to him to handle the situation reason why he said "As I thought" when the hooded woman told him about the hidden blades on Historia and Eren.
Q: Is Levi and Mikasa related?
A: Yes obviously by her mothers side of the family, it's obvious because the black hair and race. Where people getting the Dad side of the family at? I don't know but this story doesn't take place in japan and anything can happen but I strongly believe they're related through her mothers side.
Its been five years....

Nice first post and welcome to the forum.
PS: Every single character will be called Monkey Trouble/Ape Titan/whatever name was given to him. Because the fans like this theory.
Seems like people already made the connection i made about the ape titan
Also his interest in the 3d manuever gear in chapter 35 plus the guys comments in this recent chapter make me think he is one and the same:
After he took the gear he obviously studied it and altered it which leads me to this pic bottom panels:

Indeed his face looks like the beast titans making my facts shake up a bit causing me to believe in your theory, but the beast titan acted like he never seen the 3D maneuver gear which has been out when Eren and Mikasa got saved 5 years ago, which was also when Krista's mom was killed by Hat Ackerman, 5 years ago.

Thanks for the welcome.
Thanks I appreciate it a-lot. I normally don't join these things, but Shingeki No Kyojin is by far the best manga I've ever read, and this one release a month thing? It's killing me, so I gotta feed the addiction by interacting with others who share my addiction else I'll be consumed by it and die not being able to read the next chapter and I cannot let that happen.
Maybe combine bloodshed with probing the past? Isayama kind of did that with Ymir, Reiner and Bert..
I do think Jean should be next, because Mikasa and Armin are more important characters and Hange.. I don't know. The thing with Jean is he doesn't got a connection to the plot, like the others.
And this page seems to indicate something..
The hooded woman seemed more like an ally (to cut-throat-Ackerman) than a subordinate.. My guess is she is a rich lady with great influence. Maybe part of the cult?

I also get the impression they take the man's surname after marriage, just seems like that kind of culture. We don't even know if Levi is related by blood, he could have been an orphan. It's too early to say anything for sure.
I heard (From Teiran)that she might be Annie's mother; the blond hair, long nose. Being a mother to a Titan Shifter would probably prompt to search thoroughly for sharp objects. Annie could be from the Inner Walls, as we never saw her in the flashbacks with Reiner, Berwick and Berthold, and we never saw her during the Fall of Wall of Maria. She was also so distant to them the whole time, even though they worked together.
Of course it also opens a plothole of how she came to know of Reiner and Berthold, and how she knows the location of the village. Also the whole Warrior thing, which seems more like an outsider thing.
Of course, the Hooded Lady could be one of the those who invaded the Walls 5 years ago, which would also sweep the above plot hole off the board all together.
Sending 4(-1) children to eradicate an entire country, and search for 3 very valuable people, seems like a plan akin to shooting yourself in the foot.
I forgot to say welcome. Welcome Marc Techie! Skål!
I'm the cool one around here.
