Well, I never knew that an ***hole was part of the reproductive system, so that might be an option. Or they are like owls and regurgitate their prey.

So what's the official kill count? We know Thomas is Titan food, what about that other guy and the brunette?

Thomas, Mina and like 3 other guys I think (if you include Eren, 4). Hundreds more outside of this squad of course. The couple earlier weren't part of Eren's squad, but going by the preview it looks like one of them dies.

EDIT: Their names are Nack and Hannah BTW.

Whoa. The protagonist Eren dies. It's like Ga-Rei Zero again.

Whether Eren was incompetent or not, it didn't matter, none of them expected surprise attacks, jumping and fasts reflexes from the Titans.

Blaming Eren for the situation is pretty silly. They got ambushed straight out, the front-line had already collapsed and they were surrounded by a group of titans. Anything short of an immediate retreat would have resulted in the exact same situation.

Notice that even Arwin, who was the furthest away from the action, had a titan effectively just appears next to him. They had already been surrounded.

Pretty brutal, and I'm actually quite thankful for the Censorship, I don't think I could have taken seeing Mina get chewed on. At least she was knocked unconscious, unlike those other poor bastards.

Chomped on his very first fight. Damn. The protagonists aren’t even allowed to swag a little are they? Okay, so maybe the serum (or whatever it is) his dad injected to Eren will turn him into Piccolo? Anyway, I really enjoy this episode. I’m so glad that I choose to not read the manga first. Now, I can expect joy and surprises once a week watching this series ^^.

Yep. And now that you mention it, that scene instantly reminds me about Godzilla’s surprise attack from beneath to the Apache chopper in 1998 Hollywood’s Godzilla movie. Both using their mouth to attack their tiny opponents from below.

Then you are welcomed to enjoy my reaction to your heart’s content. I will be anime-only watcher until this series is over just to enjoy it to the max. I'll read the manga after that (just like what I did with Zetsuen no Tempest).

Titan can regenerate after its entire head+neck was destroyed by a canon.....but you can kill Titan by cutting the back of its neck???

Not sure how is that even make sense......

well trainees were humans. if humans were strong they wouldn't be hiding behind walls. blaming Eren for his teammates death is absurd. they are soldiers, they can't run away. they had to fight knowing they can die. even Eren wasn't exception

As much as I'm convinced Eren will continue to live,..

...God damn that was brutal...

I really don't want Eren to die. He's been such an awesome character and they took it up to eleven with his ability to save Armin like that. It was really sweet that he remembered such fond memories with Armin and it was pretty well done.

What is the point if you have to see it before you can report it? The fun was already spoilt for you. And while some use the spoiler tags, they often forget to label it. I reported one such violation in another thread, but it was not addressed, so the mods probably have their hands full as it were.

I think the simplest courtesy is to avoid discussing anything from the manga in an anime thread. I feel that it's not too much to ask. After all, the relevant threads have already been compiled into a one-stop sub-forum.

I am especially tired of people saying that so-and-so anime scene isn't as good as the manga's equivalent, and so on. Look, as an anime-only viewer, I couldn't care less how the anime compares to the manga. I'm judging the anime on its own merits, not on how similar it is to the manga. I don't need manga readers to come in here to tell me how the manga is better. If I'm curious, I'll find out on my own, thank you very much.

In any case, an anime doesn't have to be 100 per cent faithful to its manga source to be effective. The story in either medium only needs to be faithful to its creators' vision. Learn to accept that, and if manga readers can't, they should avoid watching the anime. They're asking for pointless grief.

They always have some form of plot armor that keeps them alive until the story truly calls for it.
Not going to confirm anything regarding Shingeki, but your assumption is invalid as there are series where the protagonist(s) get killed very early.
Of course, not the "absolute" main character, but some series actually change the main character "position" in such way.

Already author confessed that he stole from various manga, game, animes.
Especially, he stole initial setting from Muv Luv because he is Muv Luv fan.

IMO this is the 2nd first episode, this was very intense, from my point of view this more enjoyable then reading the manga.

Now this is where our patience challenged, it's about are we going to spoil our self with manga/wiki or wait till next week. I personally won't be able to wait myself so the choice is up to you, if I may suggest let us forget about Eren dead for a week, maybe that's help, I mean his dead is only at the end of episode I think we can try to discuss many other think that happened in episode.

I do feel strange on how the capital try to kept secret about outer world, I don't think it's necessary, I mean I didn't see the benefit from it.

Talking about bad emergency protocol on wall breach for 100 year + 5 year from last breach they definitely learn nothing, why don't they build underground tunnel with many entrance scattered on the district, to get behind the wall? It's much saver and efficient then one gate system + water passage.

I was referring to anime main protagonists in general. Granted there are those who actually die (even more than once) such as Goku from Dragonball and Yuusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho but they don't stay dead for very long and are revived by some plot devise. But in the case SnK it would be very anticlimactic if Eren just died from being eaten by a titan without even coming close to his goal.

Titans ate all humans and they lived happily ever after. The End.

Wait what do you mean there are still twenty episodes left?

Next episode, new series "Fullmetal Titanhunter" starting, with protagonist with cybernetic arm and a leg, and Armin's soul perpetually trapped inside a gigantic armor titan!
