Of course the titan's superior combat ability is a more vague assumption, but notice how she seemed to excel the most at kicking techniques..... which is what Annie was good at (remember when Eren learned her leg sweep move in that flashback?). So yeah, I'd definitely say that there's some pretty solid evidence that points to the female titan's true identity.....
It's still much more likely to be a new character that hasn't been introduced at least in my opinion. I just think people are trying to force the identity of the female titan on to her because she somewhat fits.

^Oh, I can definitely understand why you'd feel that way for sure, but despite that..... do you still deny the evidence I brought up? Because as I said already, those were pretty strong hints that point towards the potential true identity of Miss Killer Giant....

I'm pretty sure it has more to do with Rivailee stabbing her in the yes...

I honestly have no clue what's gonna happen next. I can only assume Eren and Mikasa will some how escape and try and make it to that basement.

As for who the female titan is, I'm also banking on Annie, I doubt it's a completely new character, I don't think that would be as shocking.

How did Annie die, though? I've forgotten, but wasn't she eaten (usually a good guess, lol)?

It seems most readers are thinking it's something like: Eren's dad invented a serum that grants the ability to turn into a giant. He injected Eren with it (for his own protection), then disappeared (and might be -- or be responsible -- for the enormous titan and/or the armored titan).

A possibility that I'm considering is something like: Eren's dad actually invented is some kind of (partial?) immunization vaccine. EG: the giants "eat" by absorbing people's souls (or life energy, or whatever), and spit the bodies back out once they've sucked out the soul (or whatever). Eren's vaccine injection made him "immune" (or mostly immune) to this process, so he was able to hijack the giant's "giant body" for his own use (isn't his giant body pretty much identically-sized to the one he burst out of the first time?).

Annie might've gotten an earlier version of the vaccine (or an alternative, less-advanced variant being developed by some other human faction), so she somewhat "survived" being eaten (and has some trace of her old personality as a giant) but isn't able to turn into a human the way someone like Eren can.

Just some speculation. The writer's been inventive enough before that I would be a bit disappointed to find out the serum is just a "giant-izer" serum and there're some human conspiracies surrounding everything. It does seem like we could see Rivaille, Misaka, and Eren making a stealth run to his house in a few chapters; anyone want to be on the place having already been looted by the time they get there?

That might be my bad. Anyone I haven't seen in a few chapters I just assume to be dead.

Despite making the thread, I stopped following this for a while, but today I finally caught up.

Spoiler:


And on a more chit-chat level, I can't wait until this gets animated. Still hoping for BONES and, if possible, D Studio that worked in Brotherhood. Kameda (and if possible) Nakamura animating some of these action sequences would be simply godlike...

BONES is the only studio I would trust with this, and that's only if they wouldn't do the usual routine of color in manga pages and add a little animation, and maybe once in a blue moon put in something original.

You have to look at Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter X Hunter (the old series) to get an idea - filler isn't a bad thing of itself, but it absolutely shouldn't be used to stall the story, or be treated like a Studio Pierrot production.

And no cells. Water colors all the way.

BTW, has anyone read the light novel of SnK that they released last December? It's supposed to be full of details about the world that was before the Titans came, lots of interesting information about.

It makes sense, she was always able to own Eren in hand to hand combat so it's not surprising the female giant was able to do the same to giant Eren.

I'm interested in the ring. There are a lot of closeups on it so it must be significant in some way, is it a tranformation tool, a device that prevents her transformation in the city, a device that gives her better control of her giant form, or something else entirely?

.....Heh, and to think that there were people who actually doubted the identity of the female titan, despite the strong evidence we were given. Well, who's laughing now?



The next chapter can't get here soon enough.

BTW, something else I found interesting was that there's a group of religious fanatics who worshiped the walls as if they were gods. I wonder if those guys will end up brewing some trouble in the near future....?

No sunlight for her to transform. Something tells me though that she's different from Eren. Whose to say though with so much still unknown...
