People seem to believe in the idea that putting in opera music makes a show epic. There was nothing epic about this episode.

P.S. Did anyone else see how wet Mikasa got as soon as she heard Eren's voice? C'mon Eren, seal the deal with an intense sex scene.
People seem to think the only thing that makes an episode interesting is non stop action.

Yes, it's quite the pity some think that way.

However, these last few episodes have been far from "interesting". They've been quite dry and bland, save for the last scene from last episode, which they didn't even build off of in this one except for maybe a 5 minute scene. Which seemed a little odd considering how much focus they gave it last episode.

highly unlikely unless a valvrave-like scene happens

How are Naruto's people less protective of the young than Attack on Titan's?

NO naruto's people are more protective of thier young than Attack on Titan's

specifically in the aspect of the young shinobi and thier sensei. look how Asuma and Kakashi do thier best to protect thier students while the majority of the young generation of soldiers in SnK die and are not even guided by their superiors during combat

It's fine if you had found these episodes boring since entertainment is an entirely subjective thing, but them not having world building is bluntly false. The whole point is just that, and character development with foreshadowing for the next arc. SnK has never been a purely action driven show from the get go nor does it need to be.

The problem, if there really is any, is that SnK the anime was marketed as some sort of zombie survival horror with titans and non-stop action. Take a look at the introduction for example, I hated it when I first saw it because it didn't suit SnK at all. It's damn hype and I don't mind it now, but once again, it's not a good portrayal of what SnK is.

I think most people realised how falsely portraying the OP is by ep5

Haters will be haters, trolls will be trolls. At least AnimeSuki has a lot less of them, compare to some other places...

I disagree with you, at least with this episode.

I won't deny that Mikasa's right now got pretty toned down with her fawning over Eren, even she got to grow-up outside of her Eren fandomness during the Battle of Trost.

However, what left a mark within me about the sixteenth episode was watching Jean, Sasha, Connie, Armin, and Krista waging the mental war against their survival instincts to stand their ground in order to hold true to their choice of joining the Survey Corps rather than leaving the place for either the Garrison or the Military Police.

I have to say that Jean got his moment to shine in the spotlight in this episode in order to stir things up for the upcoming storm in the next one. Furthermore, Jean matured quite nicely after the hell he and others endured and survived at Trost, and the last straw that drove him forward was Marco's death.

Jean definitely not wants to die like everybody else, but in this episode his fear makes him to want to cling upon something a sort of promise, guarantee, or oath.

Anything that would reassure him and the others who joined the Survey Corps that their possible and certain deaths would mean something; a warranty that they won't die in vain. And, this kind of position is a tough one for Eren, since it's brought forward the issue about him not being able to control his Titan powers. Hence, there's no assurance as to the fate that awaits to those who chose to join the Survey Corps.
