Regarding Annie's flashback, I'm curious to whether Annie's father had some involvement with Eren's father in the past.
Mikasa just keeps impressing me. Isayama is truly something at making her look even more amazing these last few chapters.
Also, if a chapter leaves you with more questions than answers, then it's a pretty damn good one.

About Mikasa i guess is because she is smart, determined and very powerful when fighting. It's kinda rare seeing a female lead with these characteristics in a shounen story.
But i pretty much enjoy all cast from Shingeki no Kyojin : Arnin, Jean, Mikasa, Rivaile, Eren etc...
obs: about the Titan inside the wall somehow i get the feeling he was there even before people started to use the walled city as a last refuge.
I found the wall thing weird and confusing during the entire chapter. As in if "a titan in the wall" meaning a new titan appearing within the walls or literally inside the wall. Annie only made random holes while she was scaling up the wall. Even if it loosen and crumbled off afterward, the area shouldn't be so widespread and look so tidy. Some force must've been applied, which was what I thought happened on the lower right panel initially, like a punch or something. I thought the mystery titan was a backup for Annie or something, but seeing the wall depth versus Mikasa's size ratio didn't make any sense (the walls's at least a line of 8 people thick), and only then did I believe it was embedded in the wall.Quote:

We're currently inside the last wall of defense. Earlier chapters gave me the impression that only the higher-class people reside in there. The middle panel here didn't really help either, it's like they have to make this feel like a super safe haven. So I found it a little surprising when the priest didn't over react when Annie crashed his church. In contrast, they've probably seen titans before. But back in the days when there was only one wall, and before humanity expanded out its land. I don't think it was a "rule" to have a three layers of wall system, rather it was the leftover of how the entire city was constructed before titans overwhelmed.
We're not really explained what happens after prolonged lack of sunlight, but I guess we just have to assume it just renders them immobile and we should see it move in the next chapter.Quote:

Too many variables to factor in about the mystery titan's background, but two possibilites of next chapter from a logical standpoint: it's going to rip up the place, Hulk-style, and it's not going to rip up the place. For some odd reason, I'm putting my chips on it being on the human's side. =|
Finally got around to reading this chapter. Really fantastic and tons of questions are popping up. As much as I'd love to get some answers in order to satisfy my own curiosity, this keeps things exciting. Obviously, the cliffhanger here is insane.
Speaking of sanity, I'm glad Eren was able to keep his this time around during his titan transformation. I'm wondering why or how he was able to do it. Was it because he was more focused? Or was there something else about the situation that allowed him to keep his head? Is he simply learning more control? Whatever it is, it's pretty huge. It only increases his value as a weapon.
I also must say that the art is really improving, imo. I was wowed by the fight scenes, especially. The characters are so expressive, the panels feel very dynamic, full of movement and the progression of the panels is exciting. Totally loving it.
Even though that flashback was cryptic and mysterious, I'd say it's pretty obvious that they were both involved in some way with the enemy, if not directly with each other.Originally Posted by tonyyao82
