    Pretty sick. However, are they so low-budget that they have to use so many stills?

    Animation wise this episode was a mess, the transition between nicely done TITAN Eren's fight and the piss poor Recon evacuation was jarring as fuck and that 30 second montage of stills was ridiculous, its like two different teams handled this episode. Animation issues aside everything else was handled and adapted well especially Mikasa's crying in the end.

    Yeah? Episode 4 when Eren, Mikasa, and Armin met up with Hannes in the city where the crowd is talking about the Recon Corps when they returned.

    Eren just had to be able to transform back to human. Not too farfetched now if we'll see Titans' jumping all over the place due to everyone taking a ride in Erens' mouth.

    Also the episodes are starting to feel slow-paced.

    Great episode as usual. Only qualm with this one is that the animation was clearly lacking here..Still story, characters, and pretty much everything is going great. The pacing is also amazing with this going at about 1.5 manga chapters per episode which is really good seeing as how the manga has like 30-40 pages per chapter. The anime is undoubtedly >>>>>>>>> then the manga...and that's saying A LOT because the manga is nearly perfect.


    EDIT: Good to see my main man Eren back :maybe

    While the episode was certainly enjoyable, i'm gonna need some explanations on how this transformation actually works. I thought Eren sorta got digested then his magical remains took control but then he's able to come out fully clothed with new limbs in tow. How does that work!? I'm happy to have him back but thought the series was going in a very different direction. I expected action and political intrigue similar to FMA but this is good too. Though i would have prefered the hero in this particular shonen series not have some superpower that no one else had and just be more determined than the average joe but who wants that when you can have titans beating the shit out of each other :geg

    Lastly i still am mildly disappointed with Mikasa's characterisation thus far. The flashback helped put things into context but i still feel she should be more expressive than she is being or maybe it's just the character design, i dunno. Either way i'm not finding her development very compelling or Eren's either for that matter as i prefer the deeply flawed Armin.

    It was just a quick scene so it's easy to forget. The anime is going in chronological order as oppose to the manga so Levy's introduction coincided with his debut in the manga.

    all i have to say about this episode is that the animation became even more shitty then last episode, which is saying a lot.

    I didn't think there was anything wrong with last weeks. True the animation was not spectacular today but some of you are complaining as if it's the worse thing ever when in actuality the bad animation of this show is comparable to the best animation of the shows I usually watch :giogio


    I feel ya man, I felt the same way when it was revealed in the manga that Eren was able to do this Titan thing. But don't worry at all, the creator handles this all perfectly...literally. You'll come to understand how everything fits into place very nicely. As for Mikasa lol she's actually like one of top three favorite characters along with Eren. Mikasa not being overly expressive is simply her personality. You could see this all the way back in the flashback too. She always seemed to be the reserved type. As for Eren, yea some hate him some love him. I just happen to be the latter but I'm sure you have your reasons for disliking his character.


    Do not do this to yourself bro, trust me. Either read the manga or stay with the show.

    Lol, don't try to force someone into the series if they want out of it. The fanbase is gonna look needy. Let the person decide for himself.

    ^ Didn't mean to sound needy or anything or even forceful but I guess I came off that way. I just know where this guy has been, felt nearly the same way when reading the manga and I after catching up it was such a great experience. So, all I'm saying is that I don't want him to miss out on the opportunity. Of course I can't make him watch anything, but I can still suggest him to and that's what I was trying to do.
