Nah. Just think about the recent episode. Why would they swarm a building filled with humans rather than the nearby walls? They really are attracted to humans only.

Moreover they attack the recon squad without mercy when they go outside the walls.

I have a few assumptions I'd like a yes or no on from someone who has read the manga, and this seemed like the thread to do it in. If I'm wrong, no further explanation is required and I'll wait to find out in the anime, but if I'm right, I wanna pat myself on the back.

If this isn't the right thread, then I'd greatly appreciate if someone could point me to it.

Spoiler for I have done a lot of thinking, let me guess:

Yeah, I don't want the entire plot spoiled for me, but when I get into thinking hard about it I hate having to wait.

Well you have a long wait..........because even the manga readers don't know jack about most of the big questions.

the big surprise is, if whatever Grisha injected to Eren and put in the basement are completely unrelated to his transformation or titan

- - - -

commenting about people reaction about recent episode;

see that's why I'd like that particular episode to end up with Eren's (actual) body emerges from Titan's body (which willl probably take place in the end of next episode)

Now I cannot differentiate which one is pure speculating or just a mangareader join the bandwagon

although, like I said previously, Black Haired titan with anger management issue saving Mikasa, is not covering anything up really...

Same eye color and voice didn't help...but it was unavoidable as it IS an anime.

I'm just curious on how non manga reader react, when they found out that Eren is just another form of ultraman . . ., I speculate that will more Eren haters and on worst case series haters . . .

Meh, it's their loss if they let it make them hate the series. I know some people will be unhappy and see it as deus ex machina, but it's not just some half ass thing the writer is pulling because he's a bad and doesn't know what else to do. The whole hybrid human/titan thing is actually really important to the entire plot. It's not just about big bad guys vs. humans. It's more complicated than that. If they don't want hang on and see how it unfolds that's just a shame.

Poor Eren always getting hated on by anime viewers. One would hope with time that will lessen, but who knows. And soon he will be hated on by the humans in the series when he pops out of that titan's neck. It's so aggravating the way he gets treated. Will be annoying seeing that in the anime too. >_<

Actually that's how I reacted when reading the manga and almost hated Eren because of it. And then I found out he wasn't just the only one.... At least I felt better about him now. It's a good thing I'm okay with reading spoilers.

Yo, Please edit/delete your posts in the anime forum, You're pretty much spoiling everyone.

That and, really, those questions you asked. . .you definitely do not want to be spoiled on.

If you're impatient, go read the manga. I've been reading it for a couple of years so I unfortunately can't be spoiled but still, you have to decide whether or not you'll be spoiled by reading the manga(which is better than getting the answers outright) or wait as the truly major spoilers (that some asshats keep trying to hint at in the anime thread) won't happen in the 26ish episodes for this season. It would be at about episode 50ish if anything

Eren gets hated by the anime viewers because of

1) they screwed up with the scene with him and armin in ep 3 or so. ..that scene was not in the manga and really out of character
2)Eren is not an attractive female(people WILL deny this it's best to just ignore them and move on)
3)Eren is "weak" i.e. NOT a gary stu. . . anime view's see misaka as a mary sue but believe that's ok and because of #2 they actually WANT her to be a mary sue (but she is not, as you can see in ep 7)

#2 is really important, a LOT of people will defend a character to the death, just because its a female that looks attractive/moe/whatever, she could be kyuubey in disguise, they don't care. There's nothing you can do about this, as those people are living out their fantasies believing that female character's love for the male MC is love for that particular viewer as well. It happens all the time, to the point where many people totally miss the point of the show.

It's best to ignore people like that, You can't have a decent discussion with those folks, and it ends up being a shouting match over something that they can't prove, have evidence stacked against them but yet they still persist. . .like creationists, or the "ZOMG Y U NOT KILL TITANS WITH ARROWS" guy(there were many posters who pointed out why through going through what the anime had already said, but yet he still persisted.).

Just continue the conversation with people who are wiling to listen and take the facts that they might have missed and understand what your point is.

I know its hard to do on an anime forum, but that's the only way to keep your sanity.

Wait, has it been confirmed that there will be another season bringing it to 50 episodes? Or is that just speculation?

Speculation at the moment. but The way its going, They probably will. Although for a long stretch after an episode 26 would air in the story, the Author kinda loses the spark for a bit there, only to regain it later on in the story, once he figured out where he was going with the plot.

He's still doing Leagues better than the guy who did the Claymore manga*shudders*

but if they end the last ep off at the right place, they pretty much have guaranteed themselves jobs on this project above and beyond 50 episodes.

Most probably speculation. But I think they'd probably make 50 episodes or so. I mean, it just can't end with 25 episodes with the kind of popularity it has now. 50-60 episodes is the best deal for this type of anime. They at least need to reveal to us the spoilerific trio not just one.

They will stop at around 25 for now.
The manga needs another year or so to have enough material for another 2-cour season

As for the haters, I'd already seen people who claims that "there's no urgency nor tension now that they have a titan with him. HUMANITY IS SAVED! THIS IS JUST ANOTHER SHITTY SHONEN!"

I am predicting that they will end the anime with the capture of the identity of the female Titan.

Some of them really just hate him because he's voiced by Kaji Yuki

You can use the Attack on Titan - Q & A for these kind of questions. It is much safer for not getting needlessly spoiled.
