What i still don't understand is, how come Eren was able to find Mikasa and her kidnappers' whereabouts very easily?

The animation in the brain suggest that Mikasa gained full control of her body, which she can utilise her muscles to the maximum strengt, that y she is so godlike?

Hmm maybe people eaten by titans might become titans themselves? Then that will be interesteing to see mikasa vs eren the titan....

Eren, Mikasa and Armin were 15 when they graduated, the titan attack happened the day after that.

Sometimes a little suspension of disbelief goes a long way!

That's what is implied...I mean, if she has full control of her body then she also has perfect control of the 3D gear, her power and maneuverability should skyrocket compared to everyone else as well as her reaction time so she should be able to dance circles around Titans easily.
As we could see this episode she could even outmaneuver and bypass soldiers that were supposed to be "elites" when she managed to reach and kill the Abnormal Titan while the rest were having a hard time catching up with it.

Why are those questions unnecessary? Is it bad that we don't know everything about our late hero? Is it that bad that the story keeps dropping little mysteries like this? Must the show explain everything and spell things out clearly with no room for different interpretations and/or speculation?

I applaud SnK for portraying its characters in a gray light.

In terms of developing the story and the characters its completely irrelevant how Eren became a psychopath/early adult (whatever you want to call it) at an early age of nine. Its not something I would call "mystery". The word that comes into my mind is "distracting".

This episode was about Mikasa and not Eren. He got eaten, chewed, digested and probably shitted out somewhere in the city. In this episode his role was to act as a mediator between Mikasa and the audience and build up our new female protagonist.

Showing us more "mysteries" about an already dead person is totally pointless.

1. You are threated being killed -> you kill people to stay alive -> you are facing the reality of life, mature and become someone like the 16yrs old Eren (is he 16?)

2. (something happened in your past) -> you go on a "rescue operation" instead of waiting, cold-heartedly stab someone and then go berserk mode -> WTF just happened?

Thats why I say my scenario (both of them captured) would have clarified a lot more things.
None of these are only conditions required kill to a person. There are many reasons kill others sometimes for pragmatic reasons such as in this case. Sure Eren hated those men, but his priority was Mikasa above all else and he can't afford to take it easily against two (really three) people who are stronger than him.

It's also funny enough you bring up survival, but can't see this is pretty much that. Had not Eren approach things the way he did, he likely would have die or be sold off. Those guys are ruthless don't care or need him and have already killed two people. A third body would make no difference to them.

Not hard, I don't think finding the kidnappers was ever an issue. They cabin most likely wasn't very far from the where Mikasa's family lived and was probably only a temporary residence at best.

If I understand correcrly you say the situation justifies what he did. I say his age doesn't. We are both right and wrong at the same time cause we weight these matters different.

Unless an already dead person can still be relevant to the plot retrospectively.

I noticed they said Mikasa was the "last orient"...

So... does this mean everyone else are all Europeans and Mikasa is the only Asian in the entire world?

Well everyone else has Germanic names and such, so I believe it's safe to assume that.
Then again, this might not be the same world as ours (the location of the walls is odd if it is considering it's size and the German like population)

They are probably all meant to have the appearance of Caucasians given the fact that they have all german/english names and the only known oriental has a Japanese sounding one.

They also mentioned that in the past there used to be many different kind of people, which further suggests that not only there aren't many Orientals left, but also Africans, Arabs, Native Americans and so on.

Like Randrak said, however, we aren't quite sure that this is our world, so it may be that it simply mirrors ours, just as it happens in many other fantasy settings. See FMA, for example, where there is a sort of huge oriental nation whose citizens' names are all Chinese sounding and yet it isn't China.

There may be a few others left. It's not like they'd be all that well informed. But yeah, Asians have to be pretty rare.

There are some parallel to be drawn between Eren and Ender Wiggin, specifically regards to how Ender deal with bullies.

I really liked how this episode focused on Mikasa's past and just a little bit of Armin.I hope he gets some development in the next few episodes and become a much more stronger character than he is now.

4.5/5

But the key animation for the series shows the 3 of them (Eren, Armin and Mikasa). The OP also shows Eren killing a Titan and that hasn't happened yet in the series (0:54- 0:57). So it may not be pointless after all.

So I watched ep 6. In short,

Armin is still a crybaby. It seems Eren is really being digested. (Though the flashback kind of made me think that he may have gone into a frenzy and slashed the titan from the inside then escape through the mouth and went out traveling around the outside world. There he may have met the whole gang of Alibaba, Aladin and Sinbad that he forgot about attacking titans.) Or maybe he's dead for real. But anyways, the real deal of ep 6 is Mikasa. She killed that titan like it was nothing. The one thing that got stuck in my mind was how the titan ran like a girl. That kind of destroyed the terrorizing image the production team tried to build up until now.

Feel bad for Mikasa and what she says at the end. Wait til she finds out what happened to Eren. If that isn't a recipe for a BSOD than I dunno what is.
