Not if you keep answering to someone that is obviously a troll or a complete retard.

If an anime only watcher happened to check the Q&A thread at that time before the inevitable mass post deletion, he would have been spoiled to death.

Yeah, I didn't handle that as tactful as I could, but I thought he was someone who was just new to the forum and didn't know the rules yet.

That is going to be really cool. One of the last scene would be Misaka cutting Annie's finger and saying "Fall Annie". That scene is going to be so epic when they animate it.

It doesn't seem like a lot of people have figured out Eren is the friendly titan, which is surprising. I thought it was rather obvious given all the hints (hatred of titans, rage, knowledge of hand to hand combat and of the titans' weak point, green eyes). Maybe everybody's been spoiled already and they're trying to be considerate
I myself avoided saying anything so as to not influence anime only viewers.

I think that between the various leaked spoilers and the image thread the number of people that still don't know that Eren is a titan are very very few.
This is especially if they checked other sites apart AS.

Eren becoming titan is a major turning plot of this series, it's like the infamous 3rd episode of Madoka Magica, you need to live under a rock to not know what that's about.


I found interesting anyway that someone already found suspicious that scene where Annie asks Reiner what to do.

I do see some people in the episode thread making that conclusion, but not many. This could be because the different discussions going on.

I wonder how they are going to react when it is revealed how Eren transforms in to a titan and when he is taken down by the other titans. Some people think having a titan as an ally will remove the suspense from the battles. Seeing them react to the realization how weak Eren actually is when he is alone and in titan form will be interesting to see.

I was very surprised when I saw that post. Was that scene in the manga?

Yes and I think it is an important foreshadowing that Annie and Reiner are secretly in cahoot. It's a good thing that they didn't fail to include it in the anime.


By the way the original sentence is:

まだだ・・・やるなら集まってからだ

This is very ambiguous, because Reiner doesn't specify what it's not yet the right time to do or who he is waiting to group.

Without knowing who he is, you'd think he's waiting for more soldiers to group to launch an assault to the besieged tower. Except... who he's waiting for exactly?

What Reiner was more likely implying is that he was waiting for more titans to group around them. Then he was likely going to take advantage of the inevitable ensuing chaos to turn into titan and destroy the next gate.

I first thought Iron Maw was a manga reader trying to lay focus on the hint, but I just checked and it seems he isn't. It seems that scene is just more noticeable in the anime compared to the manga.

You know.......if nothing else else, I think they didn't include that scene where Annie offered to train Eren because then it would be too easy to connect the dots. The only person Annie ever trained in her fighting style was Eren after all.


Also, my face when someone mentioned Annie, Bertholdt, and Reiner being suspicious in the episode thread>>>>>>

To be fair, Eren was also the only one that showed any interest in her fighting style.

I hope Iron Maw is going to drop this subject. He is coming awfully close to making the foreshadowing stick out too much too early.

I don't think Iron Maw reads the manga so rather impressive observation by him. At this point not many people are going to notice this, though I could see a massive speculation after the season end.

Shouldnt he then take the bullet and get semi-spoiled from us, so that he drops the subject?

We can lure him in an alley, take a knife to his neck and "suggest" to drop the "speculating" with annie and reiner.

^^

A PM works also, but he WILL be spoiled then.

No, we shouldn't do anything. It is rather praiseworthy he even noticed it and it will be a reward for him later on when can come up with the correct theory because of it.

Saying something to him right is the same thing as saying what he noticed is important. If we say nothing he will eventually stop mentioning it and forget it for the time being.

Then again, the anime did kind of make it stand out and so did the subs he was watching. Us readers didn't even notice it from the manga.

I do have a feeling that there are people spoiling in the episode thread under the disguise of "observation".
Hopefully this will all dispel after next ep since then everyone should be on the same page


and then people start drawing unnecessary attention to the trio and the whole vicious cycle repeats itself.

Seriously, there are just too many hipsters who think they are so cool for revealing the spoilers, and even more that think the said spoiler ruined the manga because they only heard it from someone else or read from wiki.
The damage control is hard to do as well since "THAT'S A SPOILER!" comment is probably worse than a simple ambiguous speculation, and there are so many of them from kids who doesn't know better. The last thing we want is to draw unnecessary attentions
