The trap is sprung; everything goes to heck (heavy losses)
The veteran trio handles the trap like champs (few losses)
RBM won't strike until after they go to the basement
New technology boosts the SC's chances
Beast titan transforms SC members into titans
Erwin has inner struggle over directing the fight/beelining for the basement
Bert or Reiner will hesitate to kill former comrades
A defeated Reiner or Bert could be eaten (i.e. new shifter)
Well I'll be damned.
Looks like they reached Shiganshina/Eren's house by the end of this chapter.
Things really are moving fast :O!
I really hope we'll have action next chapter (depending on how this chapter ends). I am shocked they made it to Shiganshina already but totally glad they did!
emm the page the guy linked in the spoiler thread isn't loading for me, does anyone have an alternate mirror/upload it to imgur
edit: I managed to find the spoiler pictures, posted them on the other thread, hopefully I did it right :v

lol me too, saw them on reddit and add the summaries too
Finally after so long
I like the moonlight theory about the titans at castle utgard. It goes to show us how knowledgeable the ape titan is knowing all the cracks and shadows about titans strengths and weaknesses.
However with Bertolt watching I cant help but feel the next panel is Admiral Akbar time!
Welp, massacre incoming next month, that's for sure.
100 Scouting Legion soldiers? Hange giving the "ok" because, apparently, there aren't any Titans around?
canwill only go terribly bad from here D:
Even though they all have their hoods on, I'm thinking Bert and Reiner have something up their sleeve to cut the enemy's number down and avoid killing Eren.
I see 2options here:
1. BT has hidden (ordered) titans inside those houses so when people get close to the building they will jump out and start the feast (I tell this becouse in spoiler eren mentioned that he did not feel the titan presence when they were in that forest at night... so he might now feel the presence of other titans there too)
2. BT will use his magic to turn some of the SL into titans just like how he turned Connies village.
Well, I'm surprised they managed to reach Shiganshina so fast, though it does makes sense considering it was stated that they could arrive in less than a day and I imagine the advances in technology made it easier. It was another dialogue heavy chapter but at least things will get chaotic next month. I wonder if Eren will get kidnapped (again) or if he will go willingly with Reiner and Bertholdt if the SL starts losing against them.
The chapter hasn't been translated yet, so comprehending it might change my mind, but am I the only one who's getting a bit tired of all the focus Eren is getting? I understand he's the protagonist and his desire to see the outside world is a big motivation for him, but damn, other characters could sure benefit from getting more development. Jean didn't do much during the uprising arch, and the same goes for Connie and Sasha (who has just been there for comic relief). Mikasa is almost a just part of the background and if Marlo is another redshirt at least give him more screen time so we can at least care a bit if he dies. Of course, the arch is just beginning so I may be jumping the gun, but I do want to see SJC and specially Mikasa get more fleshed out.

I think it makes sense for this arc to focus heavily on Eren, considering that it's all about getting to the basement and finding out.. whatever his father had in there. Last arc was mostly about Historia and her family, so I won't be surprised if this one is more about Eren and his family -- especially since he is, yeah, the main protagonist. I imagine that Mikasa will get more focus when Isayama addresses the whole Ackerman thing, which should be coming before too long. I'm wondering if it might start this arc, since Grisha clearly knew her parents and all.
Eren's my favorite by far though so I'm certainly biased. x) I really want to see how Isayama develops him, now that he has a better feel for the character and isn't just putting him through constant mental agony hahaha. Hopefully there will not be yet another kidnapping, it'd just feel redundant at this point. (Especially since Eren had that "How many times have I been kidnapped?" moment lol.)
I'm surprised but VERY glad that they're already in Shiganshina. Last arc was tedious and drawn out, but this one is moving quite quickly. I'm glad Isayama didn't decide to throw in filler titan battles or something. I like the flashbacks to Trost and before, I always love anything that focuses on the kids from Shiganshina. Really looking forward to the full translation of this chapter, and I am already getting so hype for next chapter ahhhh. Finally, the things that I've been waiting for are happening..
The will fill the gap....and then the huge wall titans will come out, lol .
Eren being all happy and "Yeah, we'll win!" and then the colossal titan appears behind him like "Hey, starting to feel confident, eh? Let me give you a....grim reminder."
At least, I'm pretty sure, Bertholt and Rainer will sneak out on them again.
We've seen that they were waiting for them. So they do have a plan and since we know that ape titan is very, very intelligent, this plan should be very good.
So... yeah, I can already see that wall maria is going to get some new paint in chapter 74... deep...dark...red.
